Tuesday is here!  {Like it or not...}

We had so much fun this past weekend.  It's always a struggle for me to re-join reality after times like that, but hopefully I'll find my motivation this morning at the bottom of an iced caramel latte.

Ready to take a peek into my week around here?

Last week I had the worst sore throat.  Cherry Garcia to the rescue.  I went to the store to pick up ice cream and nothing else.  People probably thought I was going through a breakup or something.

Sometimes mommy just wants a margarita.  And sometimes we are out of mix.  And sometimes mommy sends daddy to BevMo! at 8:30 at night to make remedy the situation.  The end.

Peonies!  Yay for fresh flowers from Trader Joes.

There is a local mom that makes these adorable owl pillows out of towels and shirts and they are so soft and cozy.  The boys were so excited about them! {If you are a local San Diegan, you can find them here}

Reid came home from school with this furry little friend.  We babysat him over the weekend.  "Tim the caterpillar".  I was terrified he was going to croak on our watch!

A giant flag at church last Sunday.  We listened to a Navy Seal speak and it was pretty powerful. 

Oh my goodness do I love this man.  Memorial Day was gorgeous and we clocked some beach time as a family.

Reid checking out the surfers.  The water was packed.

Grant getting wet and having fun getting splashed by the waves.

Hello beautiful beach cruiser.  I wish you were mine.

On Sunday Mark and I went for a gorgeous, romantic horseback ride in the country.  It was actually one of my birthday gifts from him. 

I laughed when I saw this sign.  Ummm, not so much...

Beautiful, right?!  I could totally be a country girl.  I could totally rock it.  Pioneer Woman, here I come!

This was the horse I rode.  Scarlet.  What a seriously gorgeous and sweet animal.

I had a meeting in this building last week.  I am terrified of elevators.  I didn't realize that the meeting was in a high rise.  I pulled up and my hands instantly started to sweat.  Ugh.  I really wish I wasn't scared of elevators.  It is so inconvenient. 

Sunset at the pier.  I love this place.

Pan roasted cherry tomatoes with basil and garlic.  The easiest thing ever.  I serve these all summer long.  Sometimes alongside fresh French bread as an appetizer, sometimes as a dinner side and sometimes over pasta with fresh parmesan. 

Want to make them?
Arrange cherry tomatoes in pan, in a single layer.
Drizzle tomatoes with olive oil.
Add 3 cloves minced garlic, sprinkle with kosher salt and julienned fresh basil leaves.
Roast in pan over medium low heat until tomatoes are softened and beginning to burst.
Add more fresh basil and serve!

I am off to a busy, busy day back in reality-ville.  Hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday!!
