Oh my gosh, these are busy times around here….as you’ve probably noticed by my week off of blogging!
Not intentional trust me, it’s just sometimes…well, I’m busy living life and there truly is not time to stop and write about it.
I’m way behind and have so much to tell. This will be a quick post though…just the highlights from our recent trip to visit our friends Sam & Nia in Malibu.
Malibu always means surfing and beach time – yahoo!!
Malibu hasn’t meant “golfing” in the past, but I think now it might. We had a fun golf lesson session up at the beautiful Malibu Country Club. It was so gorgeous there, I’d go back just to visit the beautiful scenery!
I learned a DELISH drink tip from Nia on this trip…fresh lemon water with stevia!! Who knew this could be just so yummy and just what you need on those warm weather days. Squeeze 3-4 lemons in a pitcher, add 1 1/2 tablespoons stevia and fill with water. Chill in the fridge for enjoying later!
If you get to visit Malibu soon, you have to stop by the Sun Life Organics shop!! Oh my gosh!! They have so many delicious raw and vegan food and drink options!
They also have these over-the-top ice cream cookie sandwiches…trust me, I could only take 1 bite! They were so rich!
We were so lucky to be visiting over Bu La La Festival weekend! Bu La La is a festival put on by the Malibu Guild to raise money for Mending Kids International – a great cause by the way.
The day before heading to the festival, I was treated to watching the singing rehearsal of Nia and her backup singers – her friend Susan, her son Christopher and his girlfriend and bandmate Elora (their band is Ellis). It was like my own private concert – so much fun!!
Bu La La was just so much fun and I was so happy we got to see so many of our Malibu friends there!!
AND that we got to see Nia’s son’s band Ellis play live!!!
AND a little bonus….Gene Loves Jezebel performed also…a quick little flashback to my 80s days!!
I promise, I have about a gazillion more photos of each of these moments above!! I returned home Monday night to face 4 very busy days at work…wouldn’t you know…so I didn’t have time to get all my photos organized and downloaded. I will have them up soon, some here in posts and all up on my Flickr account. I’ll keep you posted – there are even some performance videos too!!
Hope everyone is having a fabulous first weekend of October – I just LOVE this time of year!
Happy Saturday Everyone!
