I’m sure you all know, because it’s marked on your calendars, that the boy and I recently celebrated our 1st anniversary. We had a lovely weekend in Oregon’s wine country where we tasted lots of wine, ate awesome food, and where I got a very bad tummy ache.
We stopped at Torii Mor where we tasted a few pinots as well as an amazing port. We also stopped at my very favorite winery, Sokol Blosser, where we were told that my beloved Rose of Pinot Noir is running out. I bought two bottles, but really feel like I should go buy more. Running out would be a travesty.
Do you know that I love tapas more than anything in this world? Well I do. And, we found this fantastic place for tapas. I’ve not stopped thinking about the tiny crab stuffed piquillo pepper. After lunch there was a beer on the rooftop of our hotel, then this lovely little blue box was presented to me. *SIGH* My boyfriend fared well, too, as I gave him a gift card for the new iPhone.
Aside: this gift was a huge mistake as I’ve not stopped hearing about how far superior his iPhone will be to mine. In fact, last night, he told me that his knee hurt, but that would probably all be cured come Friday when he picks up his new phone. And, when I ask him what applications he is going to download, he tells me, “All of them.” I’ve created a monster.
Anyway, we finished our evening with a lovely meal at Nick’s Italian Cafe (which, if you’re keeping track is where we celebrated my 30th Birthday). The boy ordered ostrich. I was not feeling as adventurous. I’m actually sad that I didn’t get to enjoy more of my dinner, but I forgot to pack the RhiRhi Upset Tummy Remedy which includes (1) Tums Quick Pak and (1) GasX Thin Strip. But, my boy was sweet and brought me ginger ale from the hotel bar after dinner.
And, that was my anniversary weekend. I’ve left out the part where we got halfway home and then received a call from the hotel saying that someone left their iPod in the room. Hint: the iPod in question is NOT pink, and I think you know what color my iPod is.
In other news, I have a review up for SmartFood and a chance for you to win a $100 Visa Gift Card. So, go read that.
