Yikes I have been a neglectful blogger this week. My Friday's are literally running into each other and I have no idea where my work week goes. Last weekend was Fathers Day and my Birthday. I was actually born on Fathers Day and this year, my bday fell on it. I lost my father in 2003 at the young age of 53 unexpectedly to a cerebral hemorrhage. While we had a service for him in 2003, we never spread his ashes. We decided to get the family together and have a celebration of his life in Ponce Inlet at Lighthouse Point Park, one of his (and my) favorite locations to go to in the Daytona Beach area.
I got some wonderful photo-ops with the girls
Vanilla Bean Cupcake Bakery in Port Orange and was ONLY $20!
Malibu Beach Grill. One of the reasons I picked there was the fact that they have a private glass room that seats 14. My group can get loud at times, especially my step-father, who has an infectious loud laugh. One thing that always surprises me about Malibu is their prices. They are very moderately priced and the restaurant is nice. The food is great and the wine is cheap. I got their surf and turf special, a sirloin and 6 oz Maine lobster tail, it was only $19 and delicious. They have an amazing happy hour which has Robert Mondavi Private Reserve for $20 until 7pm (along with other wines that are normally priced at $40).
Mr. Dunderbaks and having a bottle of Cakebread with Keri. This always surprises people. That a) Mr. Dunderbaks has Cakebread and b) that it is so cheap. It is $35 a bottle and we split a Ruben Sandwich. Yes - you heard that correct. Rubens and Cakebread at a German restaurant in a dive mall that has three Dillards. Yes, you read that correct too....three Dillard's in one mall.
