Zits and the weekend

Can I just say that I have ten times more breakouts now than I ever did as a teenager? WTH? Especially right before AF, but this month is even worse than usual. I feel like I just hit puberty all over again or something.

Okay, since I know you're dying to know ;) hubs' and my anniversary weekend ROCKED. We ended up staying in a really nice, small hotel in Avila Beach (Central Coast CA). I just love the central coast, it's gorgeous - rolling hills, vineyards, and oak trees... We always talk about retiring there. The hotel was beautiful, it didn't look like a standard hotel at all. It had a fireplace, gorgeous bathroom, and a little two person hot tub on the balcony. Very romantic! :)

Hubs' big surprise for me was taking me to our all-time favorite winery (Justin) in Paso Robles. It was about an hour drive from our hotel, and we had to take this winding, narrow back road for MILES to get there. I had no idea where we were headed and kept asking hubs if he was taking me somewhere to do away with me. He said yes, he dug a hole for me where no one would ever find my body. Aww, if that's not love I don't know what is! Anyway, at Justin we did a tour and tasting, and we ended up joining their wine club too. It was AWESOME. They have these caves dug out (well, dynamited out) of the hill where they keep all their barrels, and we got to wander through them. Later we met up with a friend of hubs' who lives in San Luis Obispo, had a late lunch with him and hung out a while, then went back to Avila to go down to the beach and watch the sun set. I of course forgot my camera, but I bought a disposable - so I'm going to have them make a disc when I get the pics developed and I'll post them soon.

The best part - AF stayed away all weekend! I'm patiently awaiting her appearance even now actually. This C was such a waste with all my vag issues, so I'm ready for her to show up and get this next C going already! It's a tad odd, I haven't had much cramping at all and my bbs have just BARELY started getting sore now... I bet she is coming late. I just hope she isn't too mean. Or too late for that matter!

Happy Monday!! :P

Oh, sounds fun! I went to CA when I was 17, I LOVED the scenery! So pretty! Have you ever been to the Atlantic coast? The diff in the waves is cool, the Atl is "smoother".

Glad AF didn't ruin your w/e! :)

Your weekend sounds like it was SO much fun! DH and I need to do something like that.

I've never been to CA and I'd love to go there someday and tour the wineries. Totally up my alley!
