The weekend in review (aka iphone photos):






Friday we had great intentions of working out and having a rare quiet evening at home. Instead, I met up with Steve at The Edison where he was having happy hour with his coworkers. Happy Hour turned into happy hours and we ended up staying there all night! We came home and watched Game of Thrones until we I fell asleep. I lasted a solid 15 minutes. Saturday we made it to Crossfit which killed me! It was so hot out and there was a lot of sprinting involved. Just when you think you are starting to get in shape, you get your butt kicked and realize you are far from it! In the evening we went to the Long Beach Grand Cru, a charity wine tasting event. It was a beautiful evening and we enjoyed trying all the wine and fare from local restaurants. I am a huge sucker for silent auctions and walked away with some wine and a weekend stay at the long beach Marriott. Staycation time!

Sunday was packed with fun festivities! We hit up the Rose Bowl flea market (check it off the summer bucket list!) and then had a mimosa filled brunch at Sonoma wine garden in Santa Monica. Such a great spot to eat outside and enjoy the warm weather. After a mimosa- or two- we did some shopping. A lot of shopping. Hey- it’s still my birthday month, right? I got some gems from Nordy’s, Urban and Zara before rushing off to Pasadena to celebrate my mommas birthday! Her actual birthday isn’t until next week but she will be out of town so got to celebrate early. We had dinner at a cool Argentinean joint in Pasadena, Malbec. And of course, had to have some Malbec. It’s only right.

Hope your weekend was fab!

My birthday was spent in Temecula and was just PERFECT! More details on the weekend later but wanted to share some wine tasting photos from our trip. The weekend proved once again how well Steve knows me and how much he cares. I feel so incredibly blessed to have someone in my life like him. Someone who loves me and knows me well enough to silently hand me candy when I’m getting grumpy. Yup, that’s love! Thankfully grumpy Lindsay was nowhere insight this weekend, too much birthday fun to be had! Now I just want to open a winery. Who’s with me?
