I Love Living In Southern CALI!

Today was such a beautiful day here in So CAL! I couldn’t have asked for better weather.  This is the reason I love living here!partlycloudy

  83° F | 54° F
  28° C | 12° C



I also loved starting the week on a Tuesday, because it’s already going to be Wednesday tomorrow and I get off early on Friday so it’s really only a 3 1/2 day week! San Diego here I come!!

Lunch was a little bit of everything , I threw in all the leftover veggies from the weekend festivities and some TJ’s creamy tomato soup.


Cucumbers,grilled mushrooms,broccoli,avocado,tomato,carrots, and a half of a pear.


I was still a little hungry and had a TJ Raw Granola Bar as well. It felt good to eat some CLEAN FOOD!!

After work some friends of ours were throwing a BBQ for their out of town parents, this was our fourth BBQ in 4 days!! Beach BBQ, Memorial Day BBQ, Birthday BBQ, and now the out of Towner BBQ!

I stayed away from the red meat,even though I did have a little bite of Evan’s flank steak!! It was soooo yummy! I went with the Smoked Apple Chicken Gouda Sausage,  it was sensational!


I also had a bean and veggie salad with salsa and cilantro dressing. I brought my own avocado too, avocados are extremely cheap right now, 2 for $1, so I brought one along to add to my salad(who does this, me!). I enjoyed some colorful fruit salad with my meal as well.

I stuck with water, even though the Margaritas looked soooo yummy!!! I have a marathon to think about all I can say is HYDRATE!!! I did go back for a few chips,salsa, and a little more fruit!!


Tonight was full of great food, great friends, and now some great baseball!! Hubby is playing softball tonight and I am at home alone watching the Dodger Vs. Rockies, the baseball vain runs thick in this girl.

I am getting up early tomorrow to run 3 miles with fast Jill! So I am going to answer some emails, catch up on a few blogs and maybe have a little chocolate before I call it a night!

Night friends see you in the morning!

The boyfriend always says he wants to move to SoCal because of the beautiful weather. (I always insist that I would miss the seasons. I do love San Diego though...)

Mmmm, I love avocado. I hope it's cheap in Illinois because I want to start adding some to my lunch too. Thanks for the inspiration!

That's such an awesome price on avocados. I guess it helps to be so close to where they're grown. They're always $1 here, even at Aldi.

i wish avocados were that cheap here! I've been getting them for $1 each, which is good, but 2/1 would be even better!

have a great run today!

When I studied abroad in Spain, there was a small fruit stand about a 5 min walk from my school, and my friend and I would go there at lunch sometimes JUST to buy an avocado to cut up and put on our salads, even though there was plenty of other yummy toppings. Yeah, we're dorks too! ;)
