Sugar Cookie Fresh Fruit Tart & Life Lately
GUYS. I'm having a diary moment today.
The Sugar Cookie Tart recipe card will be at the bottom of the page if you want to skip ahead. It won't hurt my feelings. But I felt like sharing some of whats been going on lately. Just a heads up, cause it's kinda long LOL.
Yesterday was such a fun little family day. Dave and I both had some work to do in the morning. So I made us breakfast tacos and coffee and we both did our own thing for the better part of the morning. For late lunch we went down to the beach for a burger... and salad.. and fries.. and onion rings. Treat yo' self, right?
We got back home in time for a fun walk to catch the sunset. We took the pup and he was so excited to have both of us on the walk! It's usually only one of us.
There's a cute little bluff trail in our neighborhood and on a clear day you can see just about all of Los Angeles. It's so pretty at sunset! The weather was perfect and ah, it was just a good day. I feel like a nice Sunday really sets you up for a good week, ya know?
I haven't talked much about him on here, but yes - we did get a puppy!!
His name is Bullitt (like the Steve McQueen movie from 1968) and I am so in love with him! At first I was definitely overwhelmed. I don't have kids so I can't say for sure, but I feel like it's like having a newborn baby. At least during the first few weeks haha! It's better now though and I can finally sleep through the night again, whoop!
It's so much fun to have a buddy around all the time. And I have met so many neighbors and made friends from taking him on walks everyday and stuff. It's so fun!
I love coming home from work and just hanging in the backyard, throwing the ball around with him. It kinda makes me feel like a kid again sorta? I can't wait to have him around for summer BBQ's.
So a surfer found him and his brother in a cardboard box on the beach one morning. Obviously someone had dumped them there. WHO DOES THIS?! But we took one of them and Dave's brother took the other. So they still get to see each other all the time!
Anyway, I'm sure you'll be seeing him on here every now and again ;)
OKAY - SO FINALLY. The Sugar Cookie Fresh Fruit Tart Recipe. The whole reason you're here probably! LOLOL.
I hope you enjoy it! Next time I will use a larger circle tray so that the cookie isn't as thick. But it was good non-the-less.
p.s - if you want to talk about the adventures of being a new puppy parent, please email me. I'm totally into talking about it with anyone and everyone right now :)
