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…

You Gold Girl!
Fly Lady of the Day Gymnast Kayla Williams Makes History


Gymnast Kayla Williams recently made our country proud winning the world championship title in the vault competition. The 16- year-old athlete from Huntington, West Virginia is the first U.S woman to bring home the gold in the category. She wowed the world with her strong and smooth landing at the competition held in London. Just five months ago Williams competed in the level one notch below the elite level. Williams not only proved she could play with the big dogs, but beat them. Not bad being this was her first international competition. Don't you love a good sports story about trial and triumph? According to the USA Gymnastics website Williams is in the 11th grade and her favorite TV shows are "House of Payne" of "Meet the Browns." I can't wait to see Kayla set it off at the 2012 Olympics in London.
