I’ll Cheers To That…

This past weekend was all about family, which is exactly how I like it. The whole crew was in town so we figured we might as well spend the weekend doing what we do best… vino tasting!

Friday night we had dinner at Nopalito. OMG. Let me just say it is now my fav restaurant in SF. The food was to die, the margs were delish and kept on flowing, the service was impeccable, and practically the whole menu was gluten free! We ordered a bunch of tapas… family style, and devoured empanadas, carne asada, tamales, and more. For dessert… homemade dark chocolate cinnamon popsicles. Yum!

Saturday we were off to wine country. It was my nephew’s first wine tasting experience. I mean, I can’t think of a better way to spend your five month b-day… can you?

We hit our favorite spots… Jacuzzi and Artesa. We’re all about the wine clubs… joining really pays off because you get to relax in the private tasting rooms where the vino keeps on flowing. [<– I’ll cheers to that!] The chocolate port shots are an added bonus ;)

We ended the night in downtown Sonoma with dinner at the Swiss Hotel. The food was delish… and so was the champagne gelato!

I have been super duper busy over the past month or so [busy in the best way]… relocating to the bay area, looking for a place of my own [a daunting task… I didn’t realize I had to sign away my first born child to rent a place in the city… seriously], spending lots of quality time with the fam [esp my adorable nephew Lucho], and exploring my new surroundings. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by the people I love most, in the city I love most and I can’t wait to see how this next chapter unfolds. Now that you’re all caught up, here it is. My so called life in photos over the past couple of weeks…

Exploring with my sidekick, Frida. She is the Sancho Panza to my Don Quixote. The Ren to my Stimpy. The Pinky to my Brain. The Beavis to my Butthead. You get the picture.

The view from my morning run is kind of breathtaking

My beautiful niece and nephew… Donatella the wonderdog and Lucho. Two big reasons I’m glad to be back in the bay!

Lucho’s [and my] first trip to the Biergarten in SF. He’s breast milk wasted.

Super cool Italian Street Painting Festival in San Rafael. It was about 99 degrees out but totally worth sweating our balls off to see these amazing artists in action. My fav was the pixelated Bert & Ernie.

Frida may be Mexican… but she was looking super festive for the 4th!
