Honey, I'm Home!
Thanks so much for all of the well wishes for our trip! You'll be happy to know that they worked!!! As much as it's always fabulous to take a vacation from the everyday routine, it's always just as nice to get back home.
Before I go any further, please let me apologize for missing two Seasonal Food Friday Posts while I was away. I'd set up last week's post to launch on Friday morning, but for some reason it didn't (Blogger??) and I was so busy doing all the things that you do on vacation, I never had time to check in on the blog to see what was going on. My laptop never even came out of the bag! We decided to stay on for a few extra days and after an exhausting 12 hour car ride home yesterday, this week's post never made it off the ground either! I promise that I'll do my very best to make it up to you all with some extra recipes in the coming weeks! Any special requests??
As far as the trip was concerned, we had a great time! The weather cooperated quite nicely, but the best part of the whole trip was getting the chance to see our daughter for a few days! Even better, she missed us so much that she actually decided to hop in her car and drive up here this morning and will be here until next Tuesday! Yay!!
So.... Since I'm not unpacked yet and my house is not even close to being ready for the gang of out of town family and friends who will be decending upon us mid-week and staying here through the July 4th holiday, I've planned a few different posts for the week ahead. There will be some scoop and photos from our trip and a few recipes of course, but I also have a couple of very important "food themed" issues to share with you, starting with tomorrow's post. If all goes as well as I hope it will, I'll have a couple of surprises coming up too!!
Last, but certainly not least, I couldn't possibly close this post out before giving a special shout-out to local boy and "Amazing" newly drafted Sacramento Kings point guard (possibly?) Jimmer Fredette, with this newly released video by his older brother, hip hop artist (and friend of my daughter's) TJ Fredette. Go Jimmer! Congrats on your incredible success, past, present and future!
Live Well, Eat Well !
