What happened this week? My procedure, rest, sleeping in, and preparing for a bachelorette party in Napa Valley. YAY!
A few errands were taken care of in between. It was a wonderful week! Thankful and blessed. It was a lot of fun. 🙂
To the pictures!

Procedure day! Still sleepy. I was a bit anxious, but I knew I would get through it. And I did! 😀
It’s 6:15am. Had to get to the hospital by 6:30am.
Gloomy and quiet.
Changed and ready to go. I didn’t take any pictures after this because I had to put my belongings in a locker.
I prayed before they took me in. It gave me peace of mind.
The last thing I remember was they had me put oxygen on and then I took a nap.
I woke up in the recovery room a bit disoriented. I felt good. No pain or discomfort. They gave me apple juice. 🙂
I was discharged soon after. I was relieved.
Ready to head home!
Mom and I sat in the lounge to listen to the harpist. It was so beautiful.
In our Uber heading home. I just wanted to sleep a bit more.
She greeted me with some excitement. Haha. Hi Beari!
I slept a little bit, but I was pretty hungry. I had to eat a light meal. And I slowly introduced solid food again.
Spent the rest of my Monday with Coco. She’s a great pal!

Stayed up late. Beari wanted to sleep.
I was still recharging. Waiting to eat real food! Haha.
Spent part of my day with Sally. She loves to nap.
I stayed home again. A very laidback Tuesday.

My day was spent with Coco! She’s a sweetheart. Always and forever.
Beari loves her blankets. This photo says it all. Haha.
We bathed Coco. She’s dealing with a few ailments due to her age. But we’re there for her 110%! ❤
Another day spent at home. And I’m totally okay with that. 😛

I am saddened by the headline. RIP Nia Wilson.
THE FUTURE IS FEMALE! I’m always empowered when I see this window display.
Running a few errands for the bachelorette party. Woo!
After printing copies, I had a couple of other things to take care of on Church Street.
Took Muni to get to my destination.
I got a lot of walking done. Hurrah!!
Street tacos for dinner. YES!!!
Dropped in to visit my cousins. Hi Tink! Had to pick up the tripod for our Napa getaway.
Such a sweet and silly dog.
I had to pack up and take care of photo booth props. Ready for the weekend!!

Happy Friday!!! 🙂 Time to get ready for Napa. Beari still wanted to sleep.
Kat picked us up. Thanks, Kat! On our way to Bern.
Fully loaded. It’s going to be a great weekend!
Napa, here we come!
First stop, Spa Terra! Super excited.
I got the lavender treatment. It was very relaxing. We spent a few hours there.
Afterwards, we made our way to the Airbnb. We had to setup and decorate. 😀
SURPRISE! The bride to be, Brea. She loved it!
Everyone did a great job decorating!
Charcuterie board, wine, and shots. Let the festivities begin!!
Prepped the photo booth with much assistance from the ladies. It looked great!!
We got ready for dinner shortly. Exciting!
Dinner at Carpe Diem! Took this before we were all seated. TWINNIE! ❤
Good times during dinner. The food and service were amazing. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful night.
I was feeling a bit sick. I think I ate my dinner too fast. AH! It passed, but then it returned.
Off to Napkins for some music and dancing. The night was perfect.
We ended the night with live music.
Here’s to the rest of the weekend celebrating our bride to be!

Day 2 of Napa. Getting ready to tour wineries!
Bees! ❤ This mirror was super cool.
On our way to our first winery: Domaine Chandon.
I loved all the trees.
Everything was so wonderful! Nothing compares to Napa.
Bread, charcuterie, and wine.
Afterwards, we wandered around and played corn hole.
I played a couple of games. It was a lot of fun.
My first paint and sip class. It was great!
The end result. 🙂
We all gathered for a group picture. Success!
We saw these gorgeous sunflowers! So pretty.
The famous Napa Valley sign!
B Force. Love these ladies!!
Photo cred: Bernice.
We took a few more pictures with the vineyard.
Our dinner was a Taco Bell party! You can never go wrong with Taco Bell.
We concluded our night playing a handful of games and taking pictures.
Successful Day 2!

Final day in Napa! Time to clean and pack up. Had to be out of our Airbnb by 11am.
Almost done. I put a few things away before I slept.
Farewell house! Thank you for being so wonderful to us.
Time to head over to the Napa General Store for brunch!
We looked around to see what they had. So many cool souvenirs.
At our table. Figuring out what to order.
The food is here! Everything looks delicious. I got the French toast plate.
Group pic! We’re missing a few girls because some of them had to work.
Let’s dig in!!
Done! SO GOOD.
A few more photos. The Napa General Store was great!
FEEL THE BERN. 🙂
We all parted ways after this. What a weekend for all of us!
Thank you, Jannette for giving us a lift to Vallejo. From there, we took an Uber to San Francisco.
Our driver’s name was Joyce. She was so wonderful! I’m so glad to know such intelligent, funny, and resilient womyn!! Sending love to everyone.
What a great weekend! Thankful for everything. I dedicate this post to our bride to be, Brea.
Thanks for stopping by!
