Enjoying my first free meal at Casa Sanchez. We rode our bikes again. It was hot, but very fun...

Corn Rocket

It's been a busy weekend. Wine tasting, bike riding, corn rocket tattoos... Well, just one. Ryan has been getting free food from Casa Sanchez for months, I go with him all the time so he convinced me I needed the tattoo too. I dunno, I just think it's funny, and pretty cute. We had such a fun time riding there (we earned the calories!), so maybe we'll take the trip every weekend.
BTW, it hurt like hell, I kept flinching which annoyed the heck out of the artist, we had to give him a good tip.

Wine Tasting, Take 100

It never gets old. The more we learn about wine, the more fun we have. Today was a gorgeous day in wine country, only an hour or so from the dense city fog. We stopped by one of our new favs, Vincent Arroyo. We went to Beringer, which is kind of touristy, but always impresses. We were disappointed by BV, and we walked out of Mondavi before we tasted a thing. $20 for a tasting of 4 wines! Crazy! We tried 8 wines at VA for free! We also stopped by the Oxbow Market where we tried raw oysters for the fist time. They were not gross, but I don't see what all the fuss is about, they were salty like the sea. Next, we hit up the wine merchant for another flight and some cheese (the oysters were less than satisfying), and last but not least, some Kara's cupcakes (or Kara's Crackcakes) which were DELICIOUS as ususal.
Then we headed home...
As soon as we came to the GG bridge entrance, the fog rolled in like thick smoke. Luckily, we had a beautiful sunny day behind us. I'm ready for a nap.

(Notice Ryan's cooler bag, he refused to leave our purchases in the hot car, he brought them everywhere we went today.) I also noticed I spelled "tongues" wrong, but I'm too lazy to fix it, you get the idea.


Panda-monium

I wonder what pandas think about panda hats? This is what happens when I wake up at 4:30 am and procrastinate. I have tons of work to do, but this is what I came up with instead. I think I'll make an embroidery transfer out of it and put it on a t-shirt.

Just a sneak peak at my late birthday gift to Ryan. Our little doggies! This is my first attempt to embroider without a transfer. I printed the picture, traced it with transfer pen. I ironed it onto a piece of scrap fabric and then ironed it onto this piece so it would not be reversed. I'm starting with an outline, we'll see if I get more ambitious and start filling in more detail. I better get a move on, it's time to start working on x-mas gifts!
