All Good Things Must Come To An End

There are no words to describe the fabulous time I had in Napa this past weekend celebrating my sister in law, Stephanie’s birthday. There wasn’t a lot of sleep but there was loads of wine, food and laughs.

After breakfast on Saturday, we hit the road to do some wine tasting.

We went to Morimoto for some appetizers. Check out the tuna tartare:

It was a beautiful presentation and tasted fabulous. We had a few more appetizers that escaped the camera. After checking out another bar, we called it a (late) night.

Getting up this morning was a little rough but all was well as soon as breakfast arrived:

March 2011 106

Egg White omelet with potatoes, roasted tomatoes and wheat toast. And coffee of course. :)

We got packed up and hit the road to San Francisco. We stopped for lunch along the way.

We found a little fancy taco place and grubbed on some tacos there.

I’m now at the airport and my flight is delayed due to weather. I’m really excited to get home to see my family (and to go to sleep early!).

I had such a blast in Napa…I haven’t laughed so much in a long time! Thanks Ladies for a fabulous weekend!

What is the best burger you’ve ever had?

What was the best part of your weekend?
