Home Sweet Home....

Heading to Calistoga 

Hello again my fellow bloggy bad asses. F8ck it is hard to believe that it has been almost a week since I last  posted but that is what usually happens when you are having way to much fun when on a mini vacation. We got back late Friday afternoon and our weekend was packed so I am just now getting to the blog. It was a nice relaxing break from reality for a few days.We always stay at the same resort the Solage which is just amazing the service is great and it is a resort that could totally be pretentious but is not.  As I have said before as soon as I am in the Napa Valley all my troubles drift away. It's Italy with all the modern conveniences, cuz folks I lived in Italy for two years and even though they have their shit together with certain aspects of life their are some things that I feel could use improvement in that country. As you know when you get back from vacation it takes more than a few days to get back on the damn routine horse. GG has been a little cranky and has been super annoying about wanting a swimming pool when we move {down the line}.  She spent 98 percent of the time in the water which made for a very sleepy toddler...SCORE......The rest of the time we hung out and just relaxed and did some awesome wine tasting...yummmmm.....Why is it every time you get back from vacation you feel like a total slob? I did not over indulge in food except for one night and even then we did not get dessert...I think the wine more than made up for not getting dessert. I have not worked out in 5 days and for me that is one day too many and I feel like the below:

I am getting back on the cardio horse tomorrow and cannot wait, I feel like crappola because when I don't work out I do not sleep well and when I do not sleep my nerves get out of whack yep kinda sucks getting old not going to lie.  Today is full of menu planning, house cleaning, getting through all the vacation laundry which is always hell and and getting the house ready for painters. I am also trying to get GG back on her daily schedule which is a chore all in itself. So far now I will be leaving you with some photo's of our trip........Which I hope do not bore you too much. I will go into the amazing food and why a certain swim diaper brand should be avoided like the plague.

Arrived at the resort and GG was all over
the fountains it was hella hot
Awesome restaurant on property 
Saint Helena 

My dream school 

One day....One day only about 48,000 per semester 
Bocce ball anyone?

The back area to our suite we always get the same one has
plenty of room for the kiddo and private hot tub...wink wink

Zen fountain in the back area calms me every time 

Awesome fire pit by adult pool and bar

Bikes that come with the suite to use to tool
around the wine country in - you also can drive one of the properties Mercedes
 if need be pretty awesome I say

Wow that looks amazing! I had a hard time getting back from Colorado fact...I cried on Sunday because I realized how much I hated cooking. And cleaning. And well, everything related to being a housewife. Which is ironic since I'm not strictly a housewife LOL

Looks divine, and if I weren't preggers I would drink Napa out of grapes. Good luck with vacation laundry... just finished mine and we returned 8 days ago; yep you read that right.

That resort looks amazing, no wonder you had an awesome time away :) I wouldn't want to come home, to laundry and routines. I am sure it won't take long to settle back in and good luck getting back on that horse!
