We are heading to Palm Springs for the long weekend tomorrow. A long awaited vacay for the whole family. We are taking over a beautiful vacation rental complete with a salt water pool, spa, and bbq. Which is pretty much all we need. Shacking up with my sister and her boyfriend and our parents we are fully prepared for a relaxing weekend by the pool.
I’ve been planning this weekend for a little over two months. A bit over zealous I know, but we all needed this. In preparation I have done some strategic shopping, taking advantage of the sales floating around. Here is a preview of my weekend uniform…
Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

Growing up we were lucky enough to spend some time travelling throughout Europe. We have family friends who are spread out from Sweden and Norway to Switzerland and France. During those travels my knowledge and taste for food grew…obviously. In Sweden I was introduced to crispbread, in Switzerland Priest head cheese, in Paris escargot, and Germany authentic Bratwurst. I must admit growing up I was not adventurous when it came to trying new foods. Still to this day I have some quirks about certain foods. But during that time travelling through Europe I somehow found it in me to be open to these new tastes.
Kavli crispbread is all over Europe, especially in Norway and Sweden. It’s a mix between crackers and toast. And it’s also delicious. It is one of my favorite breakfast foods. You can really throw anything on it and it brings a little more substance. Which brings me to today’s recipe.
Avocado & Egg on Crispbread
Salt & Pepper
Chop up the avocado and egg and season with salt and pepper. Pile lettuce on crispbread and top with avocado and egg mixture
Did you hear I won Chelsea from Frolic Blog’s giveaway? I must admit I don’t usually participate in giveaways, I always talk myself out of it because I don’t think I’ll win. Pessimistic much? It’s something I am working on. Especially now that I’ve won a copy of The Flower Recipe Book! It’s been on my amazon wish list for quite some time so when I saw Chelsea’s Giveaway I went for it.
I cannot wait to get my hands on this book. One of my goals this year is to learn more about florals and try to make my own arrangements more often.
If you are a blog reader you have probably noticed how popular florals have become. One day on Pinterest and you will see an abundance of wreaths, arrangements, crafts, and crowns. I must say there are plenty of bloggers out there that I am beyond envious of. Their ease of working with florals has spurred my own desire to learn more and find more creative ways to incorporate flowers into my life. Because who complains about peonies? Am I Right?
