This is our dinner tomorrow night. Well, quick dinner. As you may know, we’re up in Corpus Christi for a family wedding, and we were looking for an awesome deal to eat between the “Church” part and the “Party” part. We got a winner! (Read the fine print… Online only!)

Last week my husband and I got away for our very first trip without the children. My mother-in-law was amazing enough to offer to stay with the boys. We were super nervous to be away from them but they were fine, of course.
We flew out on Wednesday and we were wrong in thinking that just because we arrived in San Francisco by 1:00 p.m. that we would be able to do some wine tasting that afternoon.
