This past weekend was an absolute blast and I'm afraid I am currently suffering from post vacation blues.
You really start to realize how much you miss spending one on one time with your significant other when you're away from the normal hustle and bustle of every day life.
Tyler and I woke up really early and headed to Yountville, California to make our 11:45am reservation at Bouchon. We actually arrived early and had time to putter about the small quaint town. Of course the first stop we made was into Bouchon Bakery for a couple of macarons...
Lunch did not disappoint AT ALL. I had been to Bouchon for dinner twice before, but never for lunch. It was so on point and so delicious that we left with HUGE smiles on our faces from all the truffle fries and chicken liver.
I fell asleep driving into the city where we made ourselves comfy at the Stanford Court hotel. If you are looking for a decently priced hotel, DEFINITELY check them out.
After an hour of sleeping and getting showered and ready, we made our way to Churchill. A bustling bar around the Mission. We met up with Kelli and David and enjoyed a couple of nice cocktails.
After 2 hours of sipping, we headed to Bar Tartine for dinner. A very interesting combo of small plates with HUGE flavor. Besides the desserts that had virtually zero sugar and the fermented ginger drink that tasted like cheese.... it was great!
Surprisingly, we were STARVING in the morning. We stopped by Bob's Donuts for a doughnut or three along with some strong dark and black Americanos.
Oh and of course we doused our bodies in Blue Bottle.
One of Tyler's life long goals was to eat a million oysters until he could no more. He achieved this while I munched on a super nice oyster po' boy at Hog Island Oyster in the Ferry Building.
We walked all over the city... I wore wedges. Why? To look cute... my calves we sooore afterward too.
We got dressed up and headed to the Fairmont to attend the Bonnie J. Addario Foundation Gala.
It was such a beautiful event and extremely moving. I felt so lucky to be apart of it. Thunderbird donated an auction item to the foundation. A dinner for eight at the Thunderbird prepared by Tyler and I! So excited to cook for the couple that bid on it.
Seeing all of these photos makes me want to go back right this very moment. All I can do is work hard to be able to do this more often with Tyler. It really is the best.
Where should we travel to on our next weekend getaway?
(preferably driving distance from Reno, NV)
