Amber's {Weekend} Notebook: Golden Moment

Last week was my spring break. While I planned on wearing cute outfits, crafting and blogging the heck of out my week; instead I spent my week practicing yoga, hiking and working on my garden, and I hardly made it out of my of my gym clothes. However, I did have a very special birthday to celebrate so I also spent the the week making someone's favorite meals (like his Mom's enchiladas) and I made time to bake an age appropriate Dinosaur cake (which I inadvertently doubled the recipe resulting in a dinosaur-sized cake).
We also celebrated Casey's 30th Birthday by spending Friday wine tasting and then on his actual birthday (Saturday) we attended the game and World Series ring ceremony. It was so cool to see the players receive their rings and wear their gold jersey's for the night. During the months of April through September our nights and weekend revolve around baseball games - good thing I have a husband who loves baseball as much as I do!
The weather was perfect for a drive and sampling some wines on Friday.

And Saturday while super chilly and windy was a great game.
And seeing the Giants players receive their world series rings brought tears to my eyes.

  17. I am so sad i didn't get to meet you last week when I was in San Fran. That stadium is gorgeous and we had a great time at Momo's beforehand. Also the dodger win didn't hurt either :)
