Happy Sunday all! Do you ever have a day that is just really good for your soul? That was today for me from start to finish. I spent the day having fun with my sister. We headed up to Boa Vista in Apple Hill to stock up on some apples, homemade sauces, baked goodies and do a little wine tasting.
We tried apple beer, a few types of wines made from grapes and a few made from apples. This the first time I’ve ever had wine made from apples and I have to say it was surprisingly delicious. It was light without being too sweet and you could actually taste the apple. My favorite was the apple blackberry and the homemade fresh fruit sangria.
My sis gets all props for this photo collage.
At the end of our tasting, our host gave us these cute wine kits.
We headed out to lunch at Bricks in Placerville after our tasting. I had 3 mini coconut like shrimp tacos topped with pineapple salsa and Brussels Sprouts. The tacos were amazing!
The rest of the afternoon was spent shopping before stopping for dinner at Thai Paradise. I never knew fresh veggies spring rolls could be so amazing – I didn’t miss the shrimp at all.
I did check in yesterday at my Weight Watchers meeting just one day after flying home. I was up 1.6 lbs and I’m totally ok with that as I enjoyed every Chilean bite. Today I was back at it and ready to get into my routine again. I’m proud of the smart choices I made on our fun day out and all within my daily target.

The other cool thing about today….Buying my pants one size smaller than I wore last year and having that size be a little baggie.
