I don't know what I even did this weekend.

Linking with Jenni for the best of Instagram!

Here's my weekend in pictures :)

Yummy Saturday breakfast/brunch at Opera Patisserie.

That's a scrambled egg and bacon croissant sandwich.

I could eat this for every meal possibly.

Still meh about my bangs.

Saturday we originally had plans to go to the Wild Animal Park.

It's like the zoo but more safari-ish and the animals have more roam area.

But then after our huge breakfast, pretty much my energy went downhill.

Boyfriend suggested we go get a bottle of wine. At noon. Which is so out of character for us, really.

First of all. I can't hang. I am not a day drinker and binge drinking backfires on me these days.

Hangovers get worse with age. I live in terror of them so I usually keep it to 1-3 drinks.

Anyways we hit up BevMo! and discovered they have wine tasting there Saturdays from 12-3?

I mean who goes and buys booze Saturday from 12-3, so how could we have known that?

So for $2 each we got to try 3 different white wines and 3 different red wines.

They were also having their 5 centwine sale! Buy one get one for 5 cents so we stocked up.

Stocked up so we could have bottles on hand for special occasions (aka when we make dinner...yes this is a special occasion :/)

We also realized the importance of cheese for mass wine consumption.

I wanted something rich like a gouda but boyfriend wanted spicy. I'm pretty much a cheese fiend so a jalapeno pepper jack was totally fine with me.

Somehow our day drinking sesh went from one bottle...

...to two

...to three

...and a half.

We ordered a pizza at 6.

Fell asleep by 8.

And did not wake up until 9 am Sunday.

Spontaneous wine extravaganza=Saturday win!

Here's me proving I can wear color in my Wild Animal Park outfit.

I'm usually a neutrals slave.

I don't have kids but DVF for Baby Gap!!?? SOOOOOO CUTE!!

I had to send this picture to Lauren. It comes out March 15th and since homegirl will be in San Diego then...and we have plans to hit up the mall & Mecca In and Out we are definitely going to check out the collection. Sadly, these dresses are $50 each. But definitely worth an oogle fest.

Sunday I sat with the love of my life.

Chamomile Tea, duh.

No kind of tea soothes as well as this. 

Challenge me. I dare you.
