What's for Lunch?

A perk of working so close to home...or in my home, is that I really get a chance to see what fun little places I have around me where I can grab lunch.  Typically I just eat at home.  Today, however, there was a treat right around the corner.

El Molina Central.

I grabbed some veggie tamales and was a happy camper.  Yum.  They also serve blue bottle coffee here, which is awesome.

I have to say, I am lucky to have really great Mexican food all around.  If I can't get to Mexico, I guess this will have to do.  95 degree weather, Mexican music on the radio and these awesome floors...

Gracias y tenga un gran dia!

Dinner for 2?

I don't think I have added any ideas to the bucket lately, so I thought I would share this one.  Dinner for 2, no.  Dinner for 100? I don't know, maybe.  Outstanding in the Field sounds really awesome as a date night with my lovely hubby.  The idea is, instead of bringing dinner to your table (at home), you bring the table to your dinner.  A very long table.  Sounds yummy and the setting looks amazing.

There's one tomorrow as a matter of fact, in Petaluma.  We won't be making it, but I will definitely be keeping my eye on the calendar.  So fun!

Oh and check out the gallery of photos.  So cool!

I bet they don't have tiny peanut butter face/hands at this event.  Just sayin'

Train Town

We are pretty spoiled in that we have a nice kid spot right in our backyard.  Train Town!  It is a great go to if we need an activity in the morning or if we are just being lazy and don't want to think of a new adventure.  The boys love it and honestly, I do too.

It's a fun, mini carnival.  If you haven't been there, it is worth the drive. And while you are in town, call us, we'll head over too.  Choo choo!

Party Time!

Don't you love a good party?  I sure do.

Ok, well I do love this sign and sometimes a good party consists of this, but not always.

This weekend was a party weekend.  A great wedding with a photo booth, which was super fun for us, especially the boys and their cousins.

We also had a party for my oldest KJ.  He will be 4 this week, wow!

I love having parties.  Here are a few reasons why.

1.  My house gets cleaned from top to bottom, twice in one weekend.  Yup, a lot of work, but I sort of joke that we have parties so we HAVE to deep clean the house.

2.  People come to us. Ok  this is a bit selfish I know, but we are traveling around a lot (happily) visiting others.  We like to, but sometimes it is great to invite people to our house too.

3.  I get to be crafty.  Depending on the occasion, it is nice to make a few banners and glue or sew stuff.  I have a houseful of boys, so this doesn't happen as often as I would like, so I take advantage.

4.  It is always fun.  No matter who is there and what is going on, we always have a good time.

I love parties!  So, cheers to a party filled summer.
