Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Mine was awesome, and family-filled!  We went to Ventura to hang with family and celebrate my brother's birthday.  So much fun!  LOTS of photos below...

On Friday I took a half-day at work, and Charlie and headed up to Ventura (Greg came later after work).  Once there, a bunch of us headed to Brophy Brothers for a late lunch in the harbor.  It was hot all weekend, but absolutely beautiful nonetheless!  I ordered an ahi poke salad and a super spicy Bloody Mary.  Both were delicious!

Friday evening family and friends gathered in the backyard for dinner, drinks, and Cards Against Humanity.  So much fun!

Saturday (my brother Spencer's actual birthday) morning we made cinnamon rolls and breakfast burritos at home.  SO good!

After breakfast, my brothers, Aunt Kathy and I headed to The Collection.  The boys went to REI, and Kathy and I went to Charming Charlie.  That place has so many great accessories!  I treated myself and bought a dress, necklace, and earrings.  Super cute!

Later that day, we all (both brothers, Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Auntie, Greg, and myself) jumped in our cars, and headed to Carpenteria.  Our friend other brother Curtis works at this awesome deli, and he personally made us the BEST sandwiches.  Seriously, I got the veggie sandwich, and it was amazing!

Greg, my brothers, and I stopped at the beach for sun and swimming on the way home.  The beach is my happy place!  :)

Sunday morning we relaxed, and had more family time.  Greg and I went downtown, then met Em for lunch.  Em and I shared a seafood salad and gnocchi, and I had a jalapeño-cucumber mojito.  YUM, and so refreshing on a hot day!

It was the perfect weekend!  I feel loved, filled, and super grateful.  Primary food to the max!!  Hope you all have a lovely week!
