The Day I Said Yes!

So it finally happened! I turned 30 years old and Jason proposed! Ahh wine, birthday, engaged!? It was so much for just one day! The morning of my birthday, we made the decision to drive to Calistoga. Along highway 29, there are a ton of wineries. One of the first wineries we visited was "Andretti Winery." We loved this place. The scenery was beautiful and the wine was great. We were told that Sterling Vineyards had this air tram ride with a gorgeous view. After visiting Andretti Winery, Jason drove us further up the path to Sterling. The air tram ride was fun and lovely! We enjoyed the wine tour along with the sitting down wine tasting. After tasting a bunch of wine, Jason and I went back in the air tram back to our car. Jason pointed over my right shoulder saying "Look!" As I looked back over my right shoulder I saw nothing and turned back to him like "Huh? look at what?" but saw him holding out a little red velvet box with something shiny. Then I realized, omg that's a diamond ring! Jason asked me to marry him! Of course I said Yes! lol He completely surprised me. This day turned out to be one of the happiest days of my life =).

Love the grapes. We came during harvesting season (the month of my birthday) so the grapes were ready to make the wine! :) Such a beautiful thing.

Right before he asked me to spend the rest of my life with him <3

After he asked: This photo was taken 10 minutes after I said yes . As you can see my eyes are red and watery from the happiness. I was still shocked! haha

Met up with this beautiful lady and her sweet husband later that night to celebrate! We drank sparkling wine and talked about all the exciting things that happened earlier that day.

Downtown Napa at Empire Lounge

I know this is not a very good photo but we ran into David Arquette! It was my friend Renee who noticed him first and casually said hi. He talked to us for a bit, said congrats and happy birthday and took this pic with us. Wow such a memorable night! I loved him in the movie "Scream" and "Never Been Kissed" with Drew Barrymore! He was such a nice friendly guy. We liked him a lot!

First Wine Tasting of the Day Downtown Napa at the "Twenty Rows" tasting room. I highly recommend this place. The staff there were incredibly nice and the wine was very smooth. They also have an art gallery. Very gorgeous art work displayed!

So let's get to the details about what I wore.

The Birthday Outfit

|| Green Floral Dress || Heart Boutique || Pink Statement Necklace || Heart Boutique || Crystal Necklace || J.Crew ||

|| Green Top || Phillip Lim For Target || A-Line Black Skirt || Target Style || Round Sunnies || Heart Boutique || Black Handbag || Phillip Lim For Target || Oxford Heels || Thrifted {Nicole} ||
