Life :: B's B-day
Hello all! As you may have seen on Instagram, I took Brandon on a surprise birthday getaway to San Luis Obispo! After meeting my mom there last year, I couldn't wait to take B, but I wanted to keep it a secret. I love getting and giving surprises, so hiding the location from him wasn't too difficult for me. I pretty much just told him that it was somewhere he'd never been, and there'd be eating and drinking involved. He had no qualms with this. Needless to say, by the end of the trip, he was won over by SLO.
Besides renting a hybrid, taking cute selfies, tasting wine at Kelsey Vineyard, eating breakfast in bed and stopping by the beach, we did a few other things I haven't yet shared -- like lunch at Firestone BBQ (I got an amazing veggie burger), a drink at McCarthy's Irish Pub (I love dives), a small peek at the Apple Farm and window shopping downtown. Of course, I'm not going to reveal ALL the details. But that's most of it. ;)
Thanks to sweet Althea for the pretty nail polish, my grandmother for the cozy scarf, Shauna Niequist for being so re-readable, my mother for letting us use her wine club membership, and B who found my watch in his backpack after months of me thinking it had been stolen!
