Thank goodness I got these pictures because after our annual apartment inspection and a cleaning of our chimney today, I came home and the shop was on the ground, smooshed and torn. Apparently someone (it's a mystery as to whom) knocked it over and then, as far as I can tell, stepped on it. Repeatedly. I can't bear to post pics of what it looks like now. What makes me so mad is that no one will admit to have done it. I mean, if you step on a small fish shop, you notice right? Why not leave a note, say you're sorry? Accidents happen. But to have them deny it when I KNOW they did it... that is just despicable.

Even though I'm not very bride-y, I have wonderful friends both at work and otherwise that threw me both a wedding shower and bachelorette party. The shower was at work, and it was so very nice, Mike and I were very touched. Among our very kind gifts were a hand-crocheted blanket and JoAnn's & Michael's gift cards! I guess we are officially The Crafty People.
The bachelorette party was a veil-and-phallus-free winery crawl through Clarksburg. We stopped at a couple wineries on the way to the Old Sugar Mill, which is, unsurprisingly, an old sugar mill that houses 5 tasting rooms. After purchasing the best zin I have ever had to go with our lunch of cheese, crackers and fruit, we laughed and tasted our way through the whole building. I had no idea that there were such fabulous wines so close to Sacramento! For all you locals, they're having a Port and Chocolate event this coming weekend, and if you like either of those things, I highly reccomend going.
I just love this (appropriately) blurry photo of us all... Thank you so much ladies! I had SO MUCH FUN!!
