What You Hope For

do in your life is to
figure out what you
hope for. And the 
most you can do is
live inside that hope,
running down its
hallways, touching the
walls on both sides." - Barbara Kingsolver

A Little Wine Tasting Adventure

Had a fun getaway to Newport Beach with my friend Tracy last week. We visited the Orange Coast Winery where Tracy has a membership. 

 Tasting room for members

 Started with some of their special "Orange Bubbly"  my favorite!

 Fun choosing the toppings for our flatbread. It was yummy!

Together we chose 8 of their wines to taste

Our knowledgeable server Blaine guided us with some good suggestions

 "Here's to an Endless Summer!" 

 "Cheers and many special thanks to my friend Tracy for a great adventure in wine tasting!"

A Girl's Night In - Some September Fun

Last Thursday I hosted a girl's night in, 
"End of summer" celebration.


I had everything set up for our mini cooking lesson.  The guests were going to prepare Vietnamese Spring rolls.

They all did a great job but we agreed Kathy rolled the neatest Spring roll on her first attempt.

Thanks to Jo for bringing delicious Mango  Jello shots

 and Kathy for her beautiful fruit offerings and Margarita mix.

 We gobbled up Lynda's won ton appetizers so quickly I never got a photo but thanks Lynda

 We had a fun time playing Mexican train


 We definitely needed our Sherif
 and our deputy

 Stakes were high. We all had our eyes on the prizes

 Another fun"Girl's Night In"!
