Weekend Shenanigans

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  We were busy, good busy.  The mister was working all weekend, but I was playing.  the weather was gorgeous.  I got to celebrate a friend’s birthday, attend a tea and crumpet gathering,  a fabulous dinner at this place, and go to the beach.

This was my first time going to a tea and crumpet party.  Crumpets, which are a mix between a pancake and an english muffin, are pretty darn good.  If you’d like to try them, you can purchase already made ones, at trader Joe’s.  They’re pretty much a carb overload, but, who doesn’t love that!  I was also part of a very special celebration this weekend, for a very special lady.  So proud of you, Stephanie.  Then Sunday rolled around, and it was time to hit the beach for a little r&r.  So we gathered some folks together and made a fun day out of it.  Thanks, friends.

I feel so grateful to be surrounded by such amazing people, today.  Who knew life could be this good!

Cheesesteak Sandwiches

 Ever since I was little, I have always loved cheese-steak sandwiches.  When we were younger we spent our summers at the Jersey shore, where my dad was from.  We would go to the Seaside Heights boardwalk and get cheese-steak sandwiches.  They were yummy and super unhealthy.  Whenever I think of the Jersey shore, I think of cheese-steak sandwiches and fries with vinegar on them.  I don’t even know how the conversation about all of this came up with my husband, but it did.  He said “I know the place to go, down in Ventura, they have the best”.  So we decided to take a drive down, which is a good 35 minutes form Santa Barbara, and test this joint out.  Oh my!  It was phenomenal.  Greasy, stuff falling out everywhere, cheesy, basically da bomb!  I took pictures, especially for my dad to see, because he is a cheese-steak fan too.  I must say when we pulled up to this little shack, I questioned my husband.  He reassured my “trust me, they’re the best”.  They were.  We reminded ourselves after finishing, that we definitely cannot do that every month, more like every other month.  Ha!

Go try The Great Central Steak and Hoagie Company, you will not be disappointed!

Scarves year round

Living in Southern California is great, but yes we still have chilly weather sometimes.  The quintessential accessory to have with you at all times is a light weight scarf/shawl.  I ran across the perfect $10 scarf at Fess-Parker Hotel gift shop.  They have an amazing selection of colors.  The gift selection is nice and very reasonable.
