wine n' dine

“red red wine”

The summer is always busy because of wedding season but also because of all the summer birthdays!  To celebrate the bf’s and my friend’s birthdays, a group of us ventured to the Santa Barbara wine country to partake in some lovely wine tasting.  We went on the Captain Jack’s Santa Rita Hills tour which took us to four wineries and gave us Christopher as our personal designated driver =).  It was a wonderful day with wonderful friends, but I must confess I don’t remember much after the first winery.  I am *ahem*, I guess what you would call a cheap date? But, I did manage to take a few photos before taking a little nap at the last winery:

This is exactly why I am usually behind the camera! Look at my face! Looks like I don’t take direction well, especially a little intoxicated =).

After all that drinking, we headed to Olio E Limone for some delicious Italian food:

Unfortunately, all I really ate was this – I needed it to soak up all the alcohol!
