California Part 1-San Francisco

Sorry for the delay, but things have been in full force here since Jon has returned home... and blogging seems to always fall at the bottom of the list.  We've been back from California for over a week, and I haven't even shared a thing with you guys!  So here's Part 1 of our journey to California...

In order to get to Napa, we had to fly into either Oakland or San Francisco.  We chose San Francisco and decided to spend a night there before heading up to Napa.

We had dinner at La Mar Cebicheria Peruana right on San Francisco bay, and it was delicious.

We stayed in the Embarcadero area of San Fran near the Ferry building and Financial District.

Our hotel, the Harbor Court Hotel, was right on the water and had a great view of the Bay Bridge.

Here's a shot of the hotel lobby.  The hotel offered complimentary wine and sangria from 5-6pm and cookies and ice cream from 9:30-10:30.  Needless to say, I was a happy girl.  The Harbor Court Hotel is a Kimpton Hotel, so everything was up to par.

This is an early morning view of the Bay Bridge from our hotel room window.  Gorgeous.

Our check-in at Napa was at 4pm so we didn't have a whole lot of time to see the sights of San Francisco, but we tried our best and spent several hours checking out the bay area.

The weather was great... a far cry from the heat and humidity here in Florida, and although it was a quick day, we enjoyed San Francisco and want to plan another trip to go back and really see it all.  But our main mission was Napa, so we said goodbye to San Francisco and headed north to wine country...

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right? Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect. I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here . Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here . The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and

Food for Thought

I apologize for my absence these last few days. I started a new job last week as a event planner consultant for the local paper and have been quite busy. Nevertheless, I'm back now. First I'd like to share a yummy recipe I discovered last week. In case you don't know, I am not a big veggie lover. So when I find a good recipe that has veggies in it, I get really excited. Such was the case last week. My hubby and I buy zucchini on almost every grocery visit. However, the only thing we usually put it in is a stir fry recipe we like to make. This is good for me because the zucchini taste is masked by peppers, teriyaki sauce and chicken. I can eat it. Well last Wednesday I wasn't in the mood for stir fry, but I really needed to use my zucchini before it went bad. So I went on a search for a good zucchini recipe. And what should I stumble upon, but zucchini chips. And they were very good! Here is the recipe. Ingredients" 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs 1/4
