Six More Sleeps

I can't believe it's been a year since Rob and I have been away, it seems like such a long time especially since we had four holidays away last year. We decided to lay low this year because of the new windows and the garden project which, by the way, yielded The World's Most Expensive Cucumber and not much else. But if I dwell on that I'll get upset.

We always go away for my birthday and this year is no exception. We have the house sitter all lined up and on Saturday morning we're taking this show on the road. We are heading to Savannah for the weekend, then spending the rest of the week at the Marriott on the beach in Hilton Head Island, SC. I can't wait for long walks on the beach!

I have a super busy week coming up, lots of work shifts, workouts and trip prep, so if it's quiet here, that's why. We'll be taking the laptop with us so I'll be doing a little travel blogging with piccies, food porn and reviews. I do have a half-written post about weight lifting with my New Rules wrap up that I'd like to get up this week, so I'll try to get that finished and posted.

I will leave you with a photo of the absolutely delectable and filling dinner salad we had the other night. Baby romaine herb salad, slivers of green onion, sweet and juicy red grapes tossed in homemade vinaigrette topped with thin slices of sirloin fillet, light gorgonzola crumbles and some tangy plum slices on the side. So good! It was inspired by this recipe in Cooking Light~Flank Steak Salad with Plums and Blue Cheese.
