Moving Day & Thank You!

This last weekend was wonderful! The hubby had a meeting in L.A., so he took me with, and we spent the weekend in San Diego by ourselves (all by ourselves! Woot!)!  We stayed in the Gaslamp Quarter - I'm a horrible San Diegan, in that I lived there for several years and NEVER once set foot in the Gaslamp! It was worth the wait (and visiting with the right person, lol). We had a blast.

We started out relaxing on the rooftop bar of the Marriott (Altitude)... What a view! And a stunning sunset, too!

The next day, we visited Seaport Village... and were disappointed. It seemed bigger than the last time (many, many years ago) but also seemed full of... nothing. At least nothing that appealed to us. We headed back to the hotel, took a nap (ahhhhh, luxury!), then headed out for the Quarter.

The Betty Page Store... How cool is this???
They had the greatest stuff!

My score from the Betty Page store! Woot!
We also came across a new store/business (open 2 months) called Green Health and it was really fun to explore... everything is dehydrated. I bought several items to test, and hope they taste as good as the products sound!

After a fabulous weekend, today was moving day at work. We moved, shuffled, packed, and eventually, my 'office' found itself in the middle of my family room. As soon as the hubby gets home, we're moving furniture and setting me up. I'll still be working part-time, but now it's for two separate companies, and my hours will be more random than what I've been doing (8:30 - 12:30). Hopefully, it won't take me long to set a routine.

After I unloaded my stuff, I headed back out to grocery shop. Food prep completed, I threw a pork roast in the crockpot, and have sweet potatoes (the white fleshed ones) ready to go in the oven. Watch for the recipe tomorrow! :-)  Laundry is done, and I'm ready for the week. Feels very weird to not have to go in to the office tomorrow.

Thank you to everyone who voted in the Smart Balance Blogger Recipe Challenge on Facebook! My Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookie Skillet came in a very respectable 7th Place! Woot! The winner of the contest, The Fountain Avenue Kitchen (with a tasty baked oatmeal!), graciously shared my recipe on her facebook page and her blog (which I encourage you to check out!)! I got quite a kick out of reading her story of serving my cookie skillet (click here)! Thanks, Ann!!

Happy Monday!!
