137.6…Fire Up Those Grills

Yesterday was such a beautiful day in San Diego. Spring is in the air…summer is around the corner and I cannot wait!

Last night was Bunco at my friend Paige’s house. We enjoyed some cocktails outside on her patio and enjoyed the warm evening.

While we were enjoying our appetizers, Paige’s husband fired up the grill and all of a sudden delicious aromas filled the air. Nothing screams summer like an evening outside with the air filled with grilled delights.

When dinner was served, I was more than ready to indulge.

Everything was as delicious as it looked. I was tempted to go back for seconds but decided to save room for dessert.

I brought my Chocolate Chip Cookie Oreo Fudge Brownie Bars,  my friend Lauren made my S’mores cookies into vegan S’mores cookies, and Paige served mini cheesecakes and a éclair type cake. Heaven!

Such a great time last night! Thanks Paige! Bring on summer!

Breakfast this morning was pineapple Chobani with homemade granola and berries.

I took the kids to school and went to Zumba. Afterwards I made a trip to Costco and came home for lunch.

Tuna salad on a mixed greens salad. My son’s birthday cake has been staring at me so I had a small slice.

And now I have a stomach ache. Oh well.

Tonight my husband and I have been invited to a San Diego Chargers “meet and greet” type of event. I have no idea what to expect but it should be fun!

What about summer are you most looking forward to?

What’s your favorite thing to grill?


  1. I love having a girl's night. The food looked great!

  2. yum! that all looks fabulous. The cake however,is calling my name! My daughter turned 8 today, however...she DOES NOT like cake?? have you heard of such a travesty? So, no cake. I had made homeade ice cream sandwiches for her party and i am taking popsicles to school today. I guess its better for my weight loss efforts, but I would love a big hunk :)

  3. Happy belated birthday to your son! Nothing beats the smell of the grill - I agree.

    But I have to think steak and pizza are my two favorite things to grill!
