An impromptu one day road trip to the desert to visit friends and family turned into an impromptu mini-vacation. A welcomed time off even if it was for just a few days. It really was great to disconnect for a few days and just enjoy family time.
Yesterday we headed down to Ventura Beach but I'll do a separate post on that...
I missed all my blogger friends and so happy to be back and re-connect with everyone.
While I haven't yet decided to give in to the Instragram, Pinterest, etc. addiction I want to share with you via my "iPhone'a'gram". So here is some of what I've been up to the last few days:
Our whole family loves the Habit for their awesome burgers.
And we're not afraid of some heat!
Trice from HighHeels&GoodMeals posted this recipe (here) of Bruschetta Tilapia
and I liked it so much I tried it.
This was soo delicious the Hubby requested to add this to the regular menu!
This eggplant spread is so healthy and super delicious. Recipe (here).
I spread it on fresh sourdough bread and pair it with raw veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes.
Summertime means lots of salads for our family and this is a favorite.
Wherever we went I bagged loads of these delicious cherries for the little ones to snack on!
Pretty flower arrangement at the Pacific Theaters where we saw Madea.
Caught up on some foreign movies.
Went to Six Flags Magic Mountain where we always have an amazing time.
Threw a Princess Themed Birthday Party for my little Princess.
Spent the 4th of July poolside and watched an amazing fireworks display in the evening.
My father-in-law starting a new batch of sour cherry brandy.
