The baking bug hit me on Sunday. I found a recipe that was ridiculously easy and beyond delicious.

So…back to all the unpacking excitement at my mom's house today. I picked up Starbucks for breakfast.

Skinny Vanilla Latte and the egg white & turkey bacon sandwich. It was pretty good!

I helped my mom for a few more hours, then had to drive back to San Diego. I picked up a roast beef sandwich at Subway along the way for lunch.

I am loving the drive to and from Palm Desert MUCH better than my old Los Angeles drive! 

Do you enjoy road trips?

  1. I have a newfound appreciation for blondies in recent months! I am not particularly fond of long road trips because I'm so impatient and I usually require several bathroom breaks.

  2. Glad your Mom is settled. The last time I moved was 14 years ago this summer - it was the first time I hired professional movers and it was amazing!
