San Diego or A Much Needed Break

Dean worked almost the whole time we were down in San Diego. He still tried to make it home before dinner every night. I love this picture of him & Zoe. She is still such a daddies girl. Can you tell?

Little Miss Merris waiting for the fried chicken to finish cooking. I'm so sad I didn't get more pictures while we were visiting. Cindy & Eric have an amazing group of friends that are more like an extended family. Allen is one of those wonderful friends. He and his sweet wife came over and showed us all how to make fried chicken. I won't be making it very often due to the yummy/unhealthy factor, however it is so nice to finally know how to make it. Boy was it delicious! I adore Allen & his wife. Thanks Allen for sharing your mad kitchen skills!

I had some major food cravings that I needed to pamper (yes we ate a lot of yumminess on this trip) What trip would be complete without a visit to ::here:: Seriously yummy food & a fun atmosphere.

More daddy time

Sloan with Grandma Cindy

These last three photos are of the girls making fruit salad with grandma. Sloan said she wanted to make breakfast for dinner the last night we were there & Cindy gladly went and got all the ingredients from the store. She is so good to my girls. They love there Grandma Cindy sooo much. We all do ;)

Only wish we could have stayed a little longer. We had to cut our trip short so Dean could come home and get back to work here in town. I'm not complaining though. We are grateful he has work & he takes it wherever it presents itself. We have been very blessed. The other thing that made leaving not quite as hard this time is the fact that Deans mom & dad are heading our way tonight for the weekend. I'm so excited! I really miss not having family close by. The girls do too. Cindy & Eric are coming to see the house we put an offer on & to see some of the other properties we have looked at. I'm sure there will be lots of photos taken & yes, more yummy food eaten. What can I say its just that time in my life where I'm allowing my craving to rule ;)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Hugs to you all!

Paint With Me Thursday


Just got back from Sunny San Diego & needless to say it will take me a few days to get back into the swing of things. I did however make time to sketch while I was down there. Felt good to doodle just for the heck of it. Doodles don't have to be perfect or finished. I enjoyed just goofing around. I also worked on next months card while catching up on Chuck episodes with Dean. Hopefully next week I can actually post on Thursday night & not Friday morning ;)

You can find more fun doodles ::here::
