28th Birthday

Shawn was unable to come home for my birthday so I went to work...

BUT I did get together with many of my great friends and went out for dinner!  We had amazing Thai food and two ice cream cakes.  I enjoyed great food and company.  Thank you Jay, Billy, Joey, Janna, Ken, Jasmine, and Zach!!!!

Ice cream cake miscommunication...I'm not mad

Enjoying the cake too much

Zach's Birthday

Zach celebrates his birthday two days before me.  We have birthday celebrations all week!  For his birthday we did presents at the house, walked around the mall, and then went into Baltimore for a fancy dinner...the crab cakes were delicious!  Happy Birthday to a great friend!

Zach wishes Walter was his present.

We hung out at the mall like tweens and Zach got stuck in BBB!

No birthday is complete without a Blizzard from DQ.

Wine Tasting in Lodi, CA

Work sent me to the Sacramento, CA area a day early (on accident) so I was able to get some wine tasting done in Lodi, CA.  Luckily for me my co-worker is very knowledgable when it comes to wine.  I had so much fun and learned a lot...and drank a lot!

An old fermentation tank turned into a wine tasting room in the 60s. Held about 50,000 gallons of wine. Wish Shawn could have seen it.

My new favorite wine - Michael David's Petite Petit

A margarita for National Margarita Day!

All the DELICIOUS California food I could get

I had a very bad flying experience to get home...many hours, delays, missed connections, etc.
Decided to just relax in Denver and enjoy some food and beer.

Shawn left me for a little over two weeks to go to Alabama and redo a bathroom for his mama.  He knew how sad I was and decided to take me out for a goodbye dinner of sushi and sashimi (my favorite).  We tried a few different things that we haven't had, mackerel and tuna tacos.  They were delicious.

Shawn was suppose to return after 12 days but it has been a little longer than expected...maybe he owes me another sushi date!

4th of July

This year we went out to the farm and enjoyed the 4th with friends, bbq ribs, and karaoke.  We had too much of everything.  I made potato salad, Greek wheat salad, apple pie, and apple crisp!  Like I said, too much of everything.

I love mornings on the farm!
