Project 365 - Week 31

Week 31

What a fantastic week I have had!!!  My summer is flying by, but if I could have all my weeks be as fun as this one, it would be awesome.  I spent the first part of the week with my parents.  My dad got home on Sunday and so I was able to spend some time with him too.  I flew home on Tuesday and Wednesday evening, Darla, her daughter and 2 friends came to stay with me from Texas.  It makes me smile just thinking of how much fun we had!!

Here's my week:
mom and I took my nephew to breakfast this morning..
...what a goof! :)
It was great to spend time with him and we had an awesome breakfast!

This is my last day in Tucson..
So, I had to have my favorite treat one last time...
....a pina colada eegee's!!
And also pick up 4 doz of my favorite homemade tortillas to take home...they were still warm when I bought them!

What happens when you leave 3 boys home by themselves for 7 days?
Ugh! those would be peaches...they were on my counter.
It would probably be why there were over a doz FLIES in my house when I walked in!!!

my friend, Darla, came in tonight so I made a blueberry cake for them!!
Go here for the recipe.

The girls heading to the Justin B. concert.
they enjoyed sleeping in, shopping and hanging out today!

This is what I made for dinner....Carne Asada!!!
Sooo good, especially with the homemade tortillas I brought home!!!
Go here for the recipe!

today was SO FUN!
The girls slept in and I took Darla up to see our church
Then I took them sightseeing around LR.

here the girls are at the top of the Peabody.....
....a little heart stopping to look down!
We then did a bit of shopping...just a bit.

It was incredibly hot out, so we came home, BBQ'd burgers and swam for a while.
We finished off the day with a hysterical game of Apples to Apples

this was a great day!

I can't tell you how much fun I have had getting to know Darla and the girls or just how comfortable I felt with them from the moment they got here. What a blessing to not only have a great "blogging" friend, but a sister in Christ and a true friend.
Are they cute or what?
truly beautiful inside and out!

Jason was at work and didn't get in the picture.
Jared is enjoying the odds! ha!

saying "goodbye"...till next time!

I hope your week was as fun as mine!!!

Looks like a really fun week Sara! And that blueberry cake looks awesome!!!!!

Mocha with Linda said...

Hmm, I wonder why you didn't make your visitors some peach cobbler!! Looks and sounds like a super fun week!

Rita said...

Summer is flyin' by!
To adapt a quote from our favorite board book: blueberry cake - yummy, rotten peaches - yucky!
What a fun time it looks like you all had!

Kim said...

I don't know which sounds better -- the great times with family and friends or all that fabulous food! LOL

Loads of fun all the way around :)

Esthermay said...

Still warm when you bought them??? WOW* I am learning to like tortillas since our WalMart has two entire aisles of Mexican Food now. :-D

OhmYWoRD!!~ What did they eat all week?? PopTarts!!! Come on, guys!!

Definitely going to make the BlueBerry Crumb Cake! We are full up on FRESH BLUEBERRIES in Minnsota :) You take such incredible photos of FOOD.

What I find funny about the girls at the top of the Peabody is that it isn't that unique since people walk down the streets with their cellphones in front of their faces too! So how is this any different? LOL!

I will need to check out this game "apples to apples..."

...and how fun to meet another blogging sister! Welcome Darla! So nice to hear you had an awesome week!

God's Best to you, Sara!!!!

Dena said...

I agree that Summer is flying by!

You are such a great cook, and I'm really envious of your talent!

The peaches made me laugh! I've come home to "treats" like that as well.

How fun to meet another blogger!

LuAnn said...

You did have a great week - family and friends !!! doesn't get much better than that. How exciting for you and Darla too !!!

Darla said...

soooo much fun! the girls and i had so many memories to laugh about on our trip home. thank you again for having us, and for being such a GREAT host. i love your family and it was great meeting them in real life. :)

Lisa said...

That does look like such glad it worked out. Did your kids do a jam session?

What a shame to have those peaches go to waste. Was it strictly take-out for the boys?

Great week!

LuAnn said...

sara- i don;t know if it is me or my computer by i tried 5 times to hook up and i got nothing! just wanted to let you know i am trying. Will continue. Tried several last night and this a.m.

LuAnn said...

sure i just tried again and it worked.

He & Me + 3 said...

Yuck on the flies and the peaches. Did you type Justin B? OMGosh, my daughter is so jealous. LOL They are so cute.
Sounds like an awesome time that you had with Darla and her crew...yes they are beautiful. You are having such a busy but fun filled summer.

Lori @ The Davidson Den said...

With the exception of the G-R-O-S-S peaches, your food this week looks and sounds especially yummy!!

How fun that you got to spend time with Darla and Company!! I can tell y'all had a great time.

By the way, are you going to the Women of Faith conference with Grace? 'Cause I was invited to go with y'all, and I accepted!!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

Sometime I have surprises like that in my fruit basket and I'm still at home...

What a fun week you had.

The summer is winding down and I am really looking forward to the fall, and really looking forward to the cooler temps!

That carne asada looked wonderful I will go and check out the recipe!


Elizabeth said...

Fabulous food, fabulous friends and family... what a great summer!

McCrakensx4 said...

What a fun and exciting week. All that food looks so very yummy as well! So much fun to catch up with friends.

RaD said...

The summer really is flying by, but I love all that we've had going on too. How awesome you were able to have a blog friend come and stay with you!

rita said...

Why do they not see what could be eaten and enjoyed??? Same happens and boys ;)
I knew I recognized Darla from the bloggy circle! You are getting together with so many. When's my turn?

Teresa Dawn said...

Wow that dinner looks Yummy! I shouldn't read blgos when I'm hungry.

Tori said...

Such a busy week and yet still so much fun and food!! Looks like you had a great time with Darla and her girls!
Will definitely need to try the Carne Asada recipe. Will it be as good without the special tortillas?
Have a super week!!

Amy said...

Loved your week!! Tucson and eegees brought back such "sweet" memories. My favorite was the root beer one, I think it was the flavor of the month in February. Geez it amazes me how much stupid stuff I can remember!!

We also love a great game of Apples to Apples definitely a family favorite. We do a version where the dealer pics a random noun from the pile and puts it with all the players nouns it adds an element of fun because sometimes the random noun is the funniest!!

Great week and I hope the next one is just as good.

SmilingSally said...

You sure know how to cram in a lifetime of happy memories, Sara.

H-Mama said...

how fun... meeting a bloggy friend. you seem like such a sweet, southern hostess. ;)

Lois Lane II said...

That blueberry cake looks heavenly!

BTW, I LOVE Apples to Apples!!

2Thinks said...

Did I get this right- you had FUN this past week?? :) I'm so happy for the fun you had, I am smiling ear to ear for you as I read this. Great pics!

Linda said...

the only thing that doesn't turn me green with envy that you got to meet DARLA!!! is that there is this wonderful chance that I get to meet you.
