So remember when I told you about my upcoming trip to California?  Well the weather was lovely, the beach was awe-inspiring and the seafood was deeeeeelish.

And these are the only photos I took:

It started when I went to take a shower...

I saw the shampoo...

and went in for the kill!  That's right, those are spider remains.  I killed a spider.

It was terrifying.  It was exciting.  It was the only time I won't make Hubz kill it for me when he's within screaming range.

Hubz and I also slept outside while we were there... on poolside lounge chairs in the backyard of the house we rented.  The stars kinda sucked (nothing like the amazing stars at home in SoDak), the "bed" was fairly uncomfortable and I woke up ridiculously dewey.  Not quite as romantic as I had envisioned.

Hubz and I also went to a DCI show a few weeks ago!  It was fun to introduce Hubz to that part of my life, see old friends and sweat like a pig enjoy beautiful music and marching!

Let's check those off the list, shall we?  Boo-yah.

 And here are a few fun eats from the past couple of weeks:

We accompanied our adorable friend Jacob to his first sushi experience!  We're still working on that whole chopsticks thing with him...

Hubz!  No, we didn't purposefully match.

Deeeeeelicious sushi!  California roll, salmon roll and spider roll.  I tend to crave sushi in the summer, there's just something about how fresh it seems!

Jake thoroughly enjoyed his sushi!

Hubz and I also visited Galactic Pizza after a saturday trip to the Lyndale Farmers Market!

I've been wanting to visit Galactic Pizza since I first heard about it, and it certainly did not disappoint!  Honestly, what other restaurant makes you wear 3D glasses to read the menu?  BRILLIANT.

Hubz geeked out.  He loved it.

We shared a lovely brew.

We ordered the "CSA Pizza."  Galactic Pizza partners with a local CSA and uses their fresh and organic produce for the pizza.  Thus, the actual ingredients in the CSA Pizza change frequently with what is in season.  ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.

We were a little turned off when we heard that there were beets on the pizza, but our waiter convinced us to try it.  I'm SO glad he did!

Our CSA Pizza had a garlic white sauce, arugula, golden beets, mozzarella cheese and goat cheese.  OH.MY.PEAS.  I will be dreaming about this pizza for the next 5 years.

Needless to say, we finished the whole thing.

The other awesome thing about Galactic Pizza is that they offer options for vegetarians, vegans and those who are gluten-free.  A win all around!  And I must also mention that the restaurant was ridiculously cute and had a retro-vibe.  I couldn't get enough of it.

And did I mention that the delivery guys wear superhero costumes?  AWESOME.

So that's what has been going on around here!  Thanks for bearing with me during my prolonged absences.




  1. I miss reading your blog! I'm glad you're doing well, and that pizza looks delish! Oh, and I've never tried sushi. I need a friend like you to convince me I need to try it and help me pick out what to eat, haha!
