No lie, the rest of our day was spent lounging and lying in bed playing Words with Friends on our iphone. I could spend houuursss on that game. Anndd....we did.
I don't think there is anything better than getting back in a warm bed after skiing.
...maybe cadbury mini eggs. I can eat an entire bag of those. Anndd....we did.

I will post pictures of our weekend getaway soon. It was much too short but so much fun. Blue skies and perfect weather.
Friday my cousin Donald graduated from bootcamp-he is now a Marine! We were able to go to the base and welcome him back to real life (for now).
Afterwards we celebrated at the Town & Country Hotel. delish.
scout the wonder-yorkie.
Saturday we hit up the shops at Solana Beach, played at Karin's, helped her cook for the following day's brunch and jest vegged out. (we might have stolen cactus' from her neighbors yard...) Annddd.... what would a trip to San Diego be without hitting up Tader Joe's?? we had a plan of attack in there and boy did we attack. I was throwing stuff in the cart like the world was coming to an end and the only thing that was going to save us was chocolate covered pomegranate seeds and other unnecessary items from Trader Joe's. oh boy.
Finally Sunday morning Karin hosted a beautiful brunch for some close friends and it was fabulous. Pecan crusted french toasties, veggie fritatta, berries galore, croissants, homemade jams and oatmeal, chocolates and much much more. She went all out and I was there to punish it all. I would've attached a photo but by the end of the brunch it looked like I was smuggling croissants and chocolate truffles underneath my shirt.
It was a fun weekend getaway and I am so dang tired.
I came home to a sweet valentine surprise. My husband knows me all-too-well:
Ruth's Diner, more treats, and 'The Bachelor'.....ahh....it's nice to be home.

It took some serious arm strength to grate the zest off the dang thing-but it was worth it. and fun.
I couldn't decide if I liked it or not. Grapefruit Yogurt Cake?! As I polished off the remaining crumbs the other night and licked the plate clean and rummaged through my fridge looking for another petrified grapefruit, I decided that Yes, I do like this cake. Yes. Yes, I do.
Try it for yourself while grapefruits are still in season. This would be super-delicious in the morning with tea, or a handful of chocolate morsels if you're like my Mom, or a bowl of Life Cereal if you're like my Husband. You may (or may not!) be dissapointed.
