This is Monday, January 17, 2017!
Day off of work? Escape the city with your friends. Add in some free wine tasting, some steaks, fries, and a visit to Ostrichland.

Prepare yourself for a lot of ostrich shots. Couldn’t contain myself.

Enjoy!

Good morning! A bit of a late start, but hey, the day before Zeen ran a half marathon and we were up like 4am for that.

So off we go to Solvang/Buellton–we came up for wine tasting a few months ago, Zach and Kiki jointly acquired a membership to a wine club which means we have to come pick up bottles every few months. That also means free tastings for the day at a few different wineries! Not a horrible errand to take.

The drive is approximately 2 hours away from Los Angeles

Untitled
Untitled
All of my annoying blank CDs that drives Zach nuts whenever we take my car anywhere

Opened my Tatcha package! Love getting stuff from them, their wrapping is always so beautiful and calming. I get my moisturizer from Tatcha, but only order during sales or deals (cuz it’s pricey!!!) so this time I got a gift set with any $100+ order (which the cream I use for eczema is) and look at all my new goodies.

Untitled
Left Zach on the couch
