Happy Birthday, Miss E!



This past week I spent time with my family on Coronado Island, CA.  It was breathtakingly beautiful with perfect, sunny weather. It was an all-around fun and relaxing time.  It's times like these when I'm reminded how lucky I am to have such an amazingly supportive and cohesive family.  We are more than family, we are friends.  And I don't mean that in a cheesy way; rather, we genuinely like to spend time with one another. 


Wednesday, July 1st was my birthday. 28! I succesfully convinced the men-folk {*ahem* my Dad) to watch The Proposal (I really wanted to see Public Enemies or Transformers, but couldn't get majority buy-in. So The Proposal it was!). Then we were off to Masala in the Gaslamp Quarter. If you are ever in San Diego and looking for Indian food, GO! The chef, Ashley Popat, is amazing and even set us up in the upstairs area at a table overlooking the main restaurant/bar. We feasted on samosas, curries, tandoori and a special white chocolate cheesecake desert. It was a great day! ***And a special thank you for all the birthday wishes. You all are the best and I'm so thankful to have you in my life. Love to you all!***


The rest of the week was spent walking our 6-mile route around the Island (sometimes twice in a day!), eating yummy food, drinking pina coladas and mai tais, playing card games and enjoying each other's company and the beauty around us.

Tonight, I'm off to my sleep study.  Be sure to catch my updates on Twitter.  I'll be lonely in the room by myself without Hubs or my pups so I'll need your company!

PS - Be sure to check out my new
Makeover!

Hope you all had a very Happy 4th of July!

xoxo

Good luck at your seep study! I hope the time go by fast! I used to work at a place in Phoenix and there was a sleep study place across the way. Sometimes when I went in early I'd see people leaving from their study the night before.

So glad you had a fantastic Coronado trip! I'll have to check out Masala when I'm home next time.

By the way, your site makeover looks incredible! Love the mosaic look of the header.
