Napa Valley Dreaming

As promised, I've got some gorgeous (at least I think they are) pictures from our trip to Napa this past weekend. NTP got a hold of my camera and was semi-paparazzi all day so I apologize that there are quite a few photos of me. I guess he likes me or something. Who knew?? Also, I'm warning you, there are a LOT of photos! And these aren't even half of what we took! Anyway, here's some eye candy! Hope you like them as much as I do!

This was definitely my favorite vineyard. The majority of photos come from here. The people were so nice and laid back and it was absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend visiting this vineyard for anyone thinking of making a trip to Napa!

The BBQ made my day, if you can't tell.

Had to include a photo of the deliciousness.

The sun came out and it got a little toasty so I changed into my new Lilly frock. :)

This is Beringer Winery.

This is inside Castello di Amarosa, where The Bachelor is filmed.

That's the last one I'll bore y'all with. If you made it this far, yay! I hope your fingers aren't too tired from scrolling. Hope you enjoyed the photos and if you can, go to Napa ASAP!

Nautical(ish) Lovin'

Yet again, I've been horrible about blogging. Sorry! I really do intend to get back into the swing of things.

NTP and I went to Napa Valley this past weekend and had an AMAZING time! Wine tastings, exploring, photo-shoots, and Easter! It was truly gorgeous and I actually had to hold back tears when we started the drive back to LA. We must have taken at least a hundred photos and I plan on uploading them tomorrow on my day off so HOPEFULLY I'll have a post up with those very very soon! Stay tuned!

Until then... I thought I'd share my OOTD! It's definitely spring here in Cali and I love seeing all the roses this state is known for blooming everywhere I look. And with spring comes dresses! Yay! Here's one of the outfits I'm loving now!

That would be me ready to take on the day!

My handy-dandy monogrammed Lands End tote!

I LOVE a good wedge and these beauties are from Payless! Can you believe it!?

I hope y'all are having a wonderful week so far! Less than a month until I move back to the Southeast! YYAAAYYYY!!!! (I'm a tad excited in case you can't already tell.)

Channeling my inner Farrah Fawcett

Y'all know how I've been raving about my love for high-waist jeans. Now I'm not talking granny pants, mind you. Well I was feeling very 70's today so I decided to channel my inner Farrah Fawcett, who I used to LOVE when I was little bitty. My mom was a fan, which of course meant I was too.

Here's my OOTD!

And here's a couple photos of the lovely and much-missed Farrah back in the day.

Love, hugs, and the 70's...

Sprite and the Bridge to Nowhere

Dear Sprite,

I'll be depending on you for the next couple of days. You know who is coming and she's already rearing her ugly head. So to avoid the nausea and hold me over until I get my appetite back (does anyone else LOSE their appetite when it's that time of the month or am I abnormal!?). Also, I'm going camping tonight so I'm really, really, REALLY going to need you to work your carbonated magic. Got it? You're the best.

The girl that really hates this time of the month.

Ok, sorry about that. I'm struggling today. But on the camping note... we're going on an adventure to find the Bridge to Nowhere! Not the Sarah Palin bridge - the SoCal bridge! Here's a picture.

From what I hear, the Governor of California back in the 1930s ordered a bridge to be built in the San Gabriel mountains. The bridge was obviously meant to connect to a road on each side creating a mountain pass. However, for some reason the road was never built and now there is a bridge in the middle of nowhere! So of course we feel the need to go hike to it, and... ummm... bungee jump off of it! I'm not even crazy about roller coasters so I am definitely not jumping off a bridge while attached to a cord. No thank you. But of course, NTP is. "It's on his bucket list" which is another way of saying, "I really want to do this and I know if I say it's on my bucket list you'll let me." So tonight a bunch of us will be setting up camp in the wilderness and tomorrow morning, bright and early, we'll trek across the mountain (unless my "visitor" decides to incapacitate me), cross a river multiple times, and I'll tape the crazies jump off the bridge.

"And if they told you to jump off a bridge would you do that too!?"

Apparently yes.
