4 years and counting...

wow, I can't believe that is was 4 years ago tonight that Scott and I went on our first date...a mere 3 days after we met...where did we meet you ask? Oh you know...a bar...the original online dating way of meeting a mate. Hey, don't knock it...my best friend met her soon to be husband at a bar too, down the street from the bar where I met Scott...he's from Michigan too...bars are good places to meet husbands...not guys who are currently husbands, but ya know, potential husbands...

yesterday Scott and I experienced our first Friday off/non-work day. I was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! When you have to wake up at 5:45 am for work sleeping in until 7:30am feels great. We got up showered and got our butt to Starbucks, the first Starbucks trip of the day...I think we might be addicts. After we had caffeine flowing through our blood stream we headed up to a little town called Ojai...it was kind of a bust. It was a very cute town and I would loooooooooooove to own a house up there, but, the little downtown strip was not what we thought it was going to be. After a quick stroll we got back in the car and headed to a winery that was on the way up to Santa Barbara.

The winery was beyond cute, just a little place where they have the most amazing wine. I sampled about 7 wines. Scott got a little tiny sip of each as well but since he was driving we didn't want to have him get full samples...Every wine I tasted was delicious...either my palette is loving wine more or they just had some pretty awesome wines. We also got to taste a wine that was being made..it hadn't been distilled yet, so it was just the juice, holy smokes was it tasty! We left with a bottle of wine and headed North to a place that will always have a spot in my heart, Santa Barbara...






We stopped at Santa Barbara Winery, instead of wine tasting we just bought a bottle of pinot noir (which we drank last night, it was fantastic!) and a uber cute wooden wine box to add to our wine themed kitchen and dining room...a

After the purchasing our goods we headed down to State street, which is downtown SB where all the cute shops and restaurants are. When I went to school at UCSB I worked at the Barnes and Noble downtown so it was a lot of fun to be back at my old stomping grounds. We found a great place to eat sushi. Every place in Ventura seems to be a bust and stupidly ridiculously priced. This place was a little expensive compared to some of the places we love in San Diego, but the quality was work it, so good! After lunch we walked around a bunch of shops and had our second and final starbucks of the day...it gave us that extra umph we needed to do a bit more shopping, find my sister a birthday present, find the rest of my bridesmaid dresses and try and get some Christmas ideas for everyone.

We ended the day in SB with Pinkberry...my oh my how I love thee Pinkberry...the best frozen yogurt...I had passionfruit and pomegranate with strawberries, raspberries and pomegranate sauce on top, to die for!
