February was busy! We walked down to the water one Sunday and enjoyed the weather.

Un sabato siamo andati a piedi fino al mare per goderci la stagione.


A colleague from work had starter for Amish Friendship Bread. I remember making this as a child, so I grabbed a starter bag from her. I made several rounds of the bread and muffins - it was just like I remembered it! 
Una collega aveva la biga per questo pane che mi ricordo di aver fatto da piccola. Ho provato anch'io e ho fatto un paio di tipi di pane da colazione diversi. Era proprio come me lo ricordavo! 

We were supposed to have friends over for the Super Bowl, but I was sick. We had bought what seemed like a thousand pounds of chicken wings, so we made some even though it was just us. They were pretty easy to make and turned out quite tasty!
Dovevamo avere dei amici a casa nostra per guardare il Super Bowl pero' io ero amalata. Avevamo gia' comprato le ali di pollo allora le abbiamo fatte solo per noi. 

Date night! One of our favorite restaurants, Mabel's Gone Fishin', did a tinned fish night. We had a great time and ate some delicious tinned fish - something we wouldn't have necessarily picked out on our own. 
Serata fuori! Uno dei nostri ristoranti preferiti ha fatto una serata di pesci sott'olio/in scatola. Ci siamo divertiti molto e abbiamo provato e mangiato de le cose che non avremmo mai scelto solo noi.

My parents came into town and I took them to the zoo. It was a beautiful day and so many animals were out and about.
Sono venuti I miei per un weekend e siamo andati allo zoo. Era una giornata perfetta e c'erano tanti animali fuori.

For New Year's this year, we decided to stay home and cook. We made stecca bread (learned about this bread when we went to South Carolina in November) and a whole branzino. It was the most perfect and cozy evening.

Per capodanno, siamo stati a casa. Abbiamo fatto questo pane che avevamo assaggiato a South Carolina e un branzino. Era una serata perfetta.

We hit up the driving range so Andy could try out his new clubs.
Siamo andati a giocare a golf cosi' Andy poteva provare le mazze nuove.

December 2023 - Christmas

Saturday, December 30, 2023

For Christmas, we headed to Salt Lake City. We stopped for a night in Las Vegas, always staying at our favorite Virgin Hotel. This time around, we meandered to the strip to visit the gardens at Bellagio.

Per Natale, siamo andati a Salt Lake City. Ci siamo fermati una sera a Las Vegas, nel nostro albergo preerito. Questa volta, siamo anche andati a vedere il giardino che c'e' al Bellagio.

Then we headed to Salt Lake where the next morning we woke up to snow! It lasted maybe three hours, but it was still fun to see. 
Poi siamo andati a Salt Lake dove la mattina dopo, c'era neve! Non e' durata tanto, pero' era bella. 

As a gift from Simone, we went to Top Golf. It was so much fun to be there with the family while watching the clouds blow in over the mountains. 
Come regalo da Simone, siamo andati a Top Golf. Ci siamo divertiti molto giocando in tanto che guardavi le nuvole che eranno in arrivo.

Andy and I headed up to the condo in Park City for a night. Gus was living his best life with his bed right by the fireplace. 
Io e Andy siamo andati su a Park City per una sera. Gus ha goduto anche lui la casa, con il suo letto di fianco al camino.

Tradition! Going to High West for dinner

Gus and Goofy

We went with my mom and brother to check out the Gingerbread House at the Grand America Hotel. This year, the Gingerbread house was the Utah State Capitol building.

Getting to see Cristina before heading back to San Diego

We headed back to San Diego a day earlier than we anticipated because Andy's new car - Tesla Model X was ready to be picked up!
Siamo tornati a San Diego un giorno prima del previsto perche' la macchina nuova di Andy, Tesla Model X, era pronta!
