Cheers! My Birthday Celebration with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours

After losing my grandmother a few weeks before my birthday, I really needed to celebrate life. I know she would want me to do that. This year, I decided to ring in a new year of life in wine country. My soror traveled up from So Cal to visit. This would be her first time in Napa. I didn’t want to drive so instead, we bought bus tickets for the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Let me tell you something, going on this bus tour was one of the BEST decisions I made. The Napa Valley Wine Country Tours bus isn’t just any bus. It’s a limo bus that looks like a VIP club lounge on wheels. We paid $119 for an 8-hour trip, visit to 4 wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties, continental breakfast and lunch. It was worth every penny. The tastings aren't covered in the bus fare, but they ran about $10-$25. Wineries won't charge you for tastings if you buy a bottle. I recommend this for tourists and any Bay Area locals who have folks visiting from out of town and want a short excursion to Nap…

Indiana Love Sweeps
Long Beach Step Show




This past weekend there was a whole lot of stepping going on in California. I attended t he 19th Annual Long Beach Step Show. The Pretty Poodle All Star team, representing my lovely sorors of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. took 1st place again for the second year in a row! EEE-YIP!! And a Bay Area team representing Kappa Alpha Psi Inc. took 1st place for the men. Both orgs were founded in Indiana. Congrats to both teams.






Up north in Sacramento the Millerizm Group's 3rd Annual Step Show took place. Special shout out to my sorors from the Bay who took 2nd place. They stepped in the rain. I have a press so I have to give them their props. My name would've been AfRHO if I was performing that day. LOL! They should have won for being the only team to step while it rained.


Hopefully both step shows won't be on the same day next year. I'm just saying....

If you want to get an idea of how the Pretty Poodle Step Team gets down, check out their award-winning performance from last year.
