Basketball in the Blood

Group pictures are alway a must!

My grandpa was the first player in NBA history to score 2,000 points in a season. Because of this we grew up going to Basketball games. None of us got the talent but most of us got the love. So in honor of the 55th anniversary of grandpa George setting a record...we went to a game. Clippers vs. Pistons. Had dinner with other friends going to the game and got coffee AND a cookie delivered to our seat. What a night!

SB Weekend

Beautiful State Street
His and her coffee
Gosh, he's handsome.
This weekend we had the amazing opportunity of a weekend in Santa Barbara. My sister lived in this area for a few months and I have so many fun memories of past times here. So the chance to take my husband and go away for a night was so amaaaazing!

A friend blessed us with a beautiful hotel right on State Street. We ate at the cutest shabby chic-est restaurant on Saturday night. (Clearly my husband's choice) And Sunday we were able to enjoy coffees as we walked around and checked out the area.

There is something oh-so wonderful about a weekend getaway. There is the excitement of it on the front and back end. And the lingering feeling of refreshment when it is over. New places to eat, coffee, and hang out time with my husband. Oh snap, I'm in heaven.

Date Night

Perfecting the Mr. Tough Guy look

Every Thursday we try to go on a date...and every Thursday we find overly crowded restaurants and long lines of people wanting to do the same! What is it with the overpopulated restaurants around here??

Tonight we set off to one location only to find ourselves with the usual dilemma. Too many hungry people! As we drove along the road we happened upon Umami Burger. The legendary. The place I have been wanting to try forever. The place I have heard so many fabulous reviews on!

You know how expectations are everything in life? Well mine may have been a tad too high tonight. Because when they brought me the legendary truffle burger that should have changed my had absolutely no effect on me. Zero. I bit in waiting for that moment of food delight...and found myself sadly lacking. But still altogether pleased that we had came, seen, and conquered. Better luck to us next time!
