Pardon The Interruption: Career Course Correction

signal-lost-1500x550

Another crazy couple of weeks for moi:  I changed jobs!  I left my job in Carlsbad on November 3rd and started my new job on November 6th, which had me closing out and wrapping up in a short amount of time.  My new career venture has landed me in the Del Mar area and although I’m still slightly north of La Jolla, the 20 minute difference in drive time definitely decreases the daily wear and tear on my car.

So pardon the interruption again as I get myself situated at my new job, and I’ll be back on my blogging game in no time!

Cave Tools Pigtail Flippers Review: Weekend BBQ!

Pigtail Flippers 1a

The weather has been so crazy lately here in San Diego that we’ve taken to lots of outdoorsy things, which includes a BBQ!  As I’ve mentioned before, my husband has a Traeger Grill.  He actually recently sold his smaller one and purchased the next size up this summer at the San Diego County Fair.  One of my favorite meals in my hubby’s steak arsenal is London Broil.  He cooked one up this weekend and used a pair of Pigtail Flippers by Cave Tools.  He said he liked the sharp hook and it was quite easy to use.  He also said that it’s great that there are two sizes, depending on what you want to cook.

As you can see, my hubby was able to handle this large piece of London Broil with ease using the Pigtail Flippers, and it turned out absolutely delicious!

“Cover Me” in Depeche Mode Tonight!

Global Spirit 2017

The day is finally here:  DEPECHE MODE’S “GLOBAL SPIRIT TOUR” AT MATTRESS FIRM AMPHITHEATRE!

I believe the show is sold out, but there are verified tickets still available on Live Nation.  I have the Live Nation app and I’m taking advantage of the “Fast Lane” Upgrade, since I have lawn tickets.  This will allow me, my sister and our kids to get some prime real estate at the front of the lawn area next to the railing.

Keep up with me on my Instagram for all of my concert coverage and I’ve created a separate section here on my blog of all of my Depeche Mode posts!

Cheers!
