Almost all packed and ready to go.

I'll be vacationing from my blog until Monday, but no worries...the recap will be...
IN... wait for it...SANE.

Favorite #1

One good thing about music...when it hits you, you feel no pain.

Listen to some of the new bands....HERE....go ahead, step outside of your musical box and discover a whole new world of sound. I bet you $20,000,001 that you will find a new band or artist that you like! ::shake hands::

Favorite #2:
The Crew that I'll be Movin' to the Groovin' with...
The Hubs. This will be our Third time going together and I say it'll be the charm.

Favorite #3:
Spicy Pie...the best slice of pizza....EVER!


I will take a picture when I get there. You will see the magical-ness that is this slice of pie. We ate it twice a day for three days...and it was not enough. I will probably eat it all weekend...and cry when I have to last time.

Favorite #4 Crunchy Coachella Treats
This year, I made some sustenance.

Crunchy Coachella Granola Bars

4Tbs unsalted butter
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 cups Flax Seed and Pumpkin granola
1 cup Rice Crispies
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup pretzel sticks
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. In a medium saucepan, melt together the honey, sugar, and butter.

2. Remove from heat and add granola, rice, raisins, and pretzels. Fold.

3. Spread and press into a 9 by 13 inch pan.... I was a rebel and did not spread it too thin.
I want granola BARS not granola CHIPS.

4. Gently press in the chocolate chips and chill in the fridge for 15 minutes...then CUT!
I cut and then chill, because how the hell was I supposed to taste it if I didn't cut it first? DUH!

Off I go!


  1. Kings of Leon- so jealous. I am definitly going next year. And it's Coachella- I hope you put a little somethin' somethin' in those granola bars ;) JUST kidding! Have fun!

  2. Ah your bars look fantastic! Have the best time ever! I'm jealous of the music and especially the warm weather/sunburn situation! Wishing I had some of that right now :)

  3. Jealous you're going to coachella. i've always wanted to!

  4. I am so jealous. That's going to be a blast. Have a great weekend!!

  5. The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.
