Hi guys! I hope you had a great holiday week! I took a good old detox from blogging and much of social media, and it felt SO GOOD to just be in the moment.
We took a short trip to Paso Robles, CA to do a bit of wine tasting from Tuesday to Thursday last week. Neither of us had ever been, but we’d heard such great things about the area! Here are a few photos from our trip.
We saw a beautiful rainbow on our drive up. Such a rare sighting around here…because it never rains!
Wine tasting at Halter Ranch.
Gorgeous sunset to end our first day.
Starting Day 2 bright and early with…more wine!
Barrel rooms at Sextant Wines.
We stopped into Summerwood Winery, which happened to be dog friendly. We met two adorable Boxer pups, who belonged to a family also wine tasting there. We ended up staying and chatting with the family for over an hour because we had so much in common!
It was chilly the whole time we were in Paso Robles, so I lived in this blanket scarf my mom bought for me over Thanksgiving. I took this picture to send to her, but didn’t have cell reception at the time – so there you go, Mom! 😉
Perfect wine tasting eats to fill up our bellies. Delicious burger from Firestone.
Before heading back to LA, we made one final stop at Barrelhouse Brewing. It was only fair that Travis get to taste some beers after all that wine!
After a week filled with indulgences (ahem, wine on wine on wine), Travis and I are both looking forward to some healthy meals. We did a HUGE grocery shopping run at the Whole Foods in Venice on Saturday morning. The entire time we were taking bets on how high the bill was going to be…but it’s all good because we seriously had no food in the house and we were way overdo for a restock!
Here’s this week’s dinner plan:
Sunday (last night): Apricot-Glazed Chicken with Whole Wheat Couscous and Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Monday: Dinner out with Travis’s sister, Justine
Tuesday: Barramundi with Balsamic Cherry Tomatoes + Roasted Broccoli
Wednesday: Turkey Chili
Thursday (New Year’s Eve!): Party at our friend’s house
Friday (New Year’s Day): TBD
Hope you guys have a great week!
