New York New York

I haven't even gotten all the pictures from my last vacation posted and I'm already wanting to plan my next trip.

I really want to go to New York around Christmas.

And I'm dying to visit Serendipity.

and try a famous frozen hot chocolate

Momma and I tried to go to Serendipity while we were in Vegas but it was 11 pm and the girl told us it would be an hour wait but there wasn't hardly even anyone in the restaurant. Needless to say we didn't stay.

What I'm Loving Wednesday

This week I'm loving...

Summer desserts

My Yellowbox flip flops. They are so comfortable.

I am also loving that we just got an Ulta near by. No more having to drive 45 mins for makeup.

Having a Ball in the Heat

This weekend Chris had an all day softball tournament for our church league.

My brother also plays on his team.

They won the first 2 games and lost the next 2.

It was so hot outside and miserable sitting out there.

Chris's parents came and watched his first 2 games.

I kept score for the first 2 games but left after lunch. It was just way too hot to sit out there all day.

Road Trip: Would you like some cheese with that wine?

One of our days in California was spent in Napa Valley.

Napa Valley was beautiful. And of course I loved all that wine. Especially since momma was driving us. ;)

Our first stop was a local bakery where we picked up this delicious mini-cake. It tasted as good as it looked too.

Black Stallion was the first winery we visited.

Donovan and I during our wine tasting.

Our second winery was really nice. I liked it better than Black Stallion. I just can't remember the name of it.

The next wineries were my choices. I wanted to visit ones that I frequently buy at the grocery store. So we were on to Sutter Home.

This is the Sutter home.

I don't remember the next wineries name either. I did do several tastings so that may have something to do with my loss of memory.

Look at this beautiful reception room.

Our last stop was Beringer Winery. This another brand that I buy a lot of.

The home was gorgeous.

We were tired by the end of this tour but wouldn't it be so nice to sit out at a table with some great wine and good company.

Napa Valley was one of my favorite parts of our California visit. It is beautiful.
