Happy Monday everyone! We’re not having a Wedding Mondays this week because we simply just believe in quality over quantity and there hasn’t been enough quality to post. However, we’re making up for it with a lot of personal posts 🙂 My parents were in town this weekend to visit me and we had a grand ‘ol time exploring the beautiful Bay Area! We ate until we each gained 5 pounds and even though I’ve been here for almost a year now it still felt like I was on a family vacation.
On their second night, we went out to Sushi Tomi in Mountain View. Here is just a little snapshot of what we put into our tummies.
I ventured over to Napa for the first time. BIG DEAL because I feel like I always preference Sonoma. I had discovered on Quora that Artesa was one of the prettiest wineries to visit so we put it at the top of our list! It really was as amazing as this photograph looks and so much more. Napa and Sonoma are both just full of hidden gems.
No matter how old I get, I think I will still really enjoy staying at hotels. That’s something that I think my Mom and I share a love for. We called The Lodge in Sonoma home for a night! I didn’t get to experience the pool while I was there. It was my biggest regret.
What would a family trip be without a family movie night about a fake family?
One of my close friends from college was in town this weekend and better yet – on his 24th birthday! We had to take him out, naturally. After dinner at Range and dessert, we were sent off with these adorable mini macarons. The boys pretty much swallowed it whole, but Hailey and I still treated it as if it were regular size and took bites into it. I want these forever.
