Escondido Idea House Open House Schedule and Directions - Southern Living

I am so excited about this. I drive through Marble Falls (which is only 8 miles away from the Southern Living Idea House in Horseshoe Bay) when I go to see my Aunt Janae in Fredericksburg. I've been wanting to take my friends to Marble Falls and Horseshoe Bay since, like, forever... now we have a good reason to go!

Check out this house.. it's AMAZING!!!

David Fulton Winery, Napa Valley


is tucked away on a residential street

It is one of the oldest wineries in Napa
It is able to stay where it is at because it's
a historic site

This winery is so worth the visit!
I loved it so much
I signed up for their wine club!

The 2007 Petit Sirah rocks!


Peaches with Basil





All I can say is yummy!

I sliced a peach- drizzled it with honey - chopped up some fresh basil ( can you believe my basil is thriving in this heat? )- then topped it off with some goat cheese

Madrigal Vineyards, Napa Valley

As I mentioned previously, I was in Napa for a convention
So...........
I only got to visit a couple wineries
Shout out to my friend, Allison for scheduling it along with the limo

Madrigal was first on the list
I loved the 2006 Petit Sirah and the 2006 Zinfandel

I'd show you a picture, but they are in a box being shipped back to me!
Being first timer, I didn't think about how to get our wine purchases back to Texas.
Of course, where there is "wine" there is a "way"

Most wineries won't even ship to us until October because of the weather.

San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf

On the way to Napa
with my gal pals,
Misty & Melissa
(remember them from our Trader Joe's Adventure?)

We spent the day (and night)
in San Francisco

Misty and I have never been there before
Melissa has lived there and couldn't wait to show us around

First stop, Buena Vista
Known for their Irish Coffee
It was yummy
but

I think I grew some hairs on my chest

I wimped out and let Melissa have mine

This week I will be posting daily on my trip to "Cali"
