This year has been a big one for birthdays amongst my people. Mom and Dad both turned 60 and Bryce turned 30. To celebrate their "150th Birthday" we spent a week together in Siesta Key, Florida. (Prior to my move to Hawaii, that's where our family vacationed on the regular.) We got right down to the fun having immediately with a trip to the Daiquiri Deck just hours after we arrived!

Back Home and Zucchini Noodles

We're back home from a wonderful and long vacation to Siesta Key, Florida, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (my home). Bryce and I were away for 13 days and were eating and drinking all the while! There wasn't a bar, restaurant, coffee shop, ice cream store, etc., that we didn't visit.

We're just as happy to be home in Seattle as we were to embark on an adventure, although now we need to get our consumption in check! We're hitting the brakes on eating out, slowing down on the drinking, and getting back into the habit of cooking in our own kitchen.

Earlier this week I made overnight crockpot oatmeal for the second time! I have a few more tweaks to make to the recipe and will hopefully post it in the next few weeks. We've eaten it for breakfast each day to fuel the healthy train!
