Last month, I took a quick work trip up to beautiful Napa Valley (well, technically Vallejo). I was able to sneak out of the office a little bit early to drive around the valley and have a glass of champagne at Domaine Carneros. It was beautiful as always up here, despite the grape vines being dormant, with little mustard flowers growing between the vines.
I went during one of the days were it rained all week in California, so I knew taking this trench with me was a necessity. I was specifically looking for a black trench coat because I knew I would have to travel to some rainy places at some point, and this one by London Fog fit the bill. I am usually a small, but in jacket the xs fit better – and it has a detachable lining for extra warmth.

On Saturday, we spent the day at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. If you live in southern CA (and have a young child), I would highly recommend buying a membership! Riley really enjoys seeing the fish and birds and playing in the little water splash area outside. One of my favorite exhibits is the Lorikeet Forest, where you can purchase nectar to feed the birds while you walk through.

Last month, I purchased some rain gear in anticipation of El Niño, but have been quite disappointed in the lack the storms’ appearance – we desperately need rain in California! I was so happy to get some use out of my rain gear on Sunday morning. These were taken before the husband and I left to have a (rare) day date, since my MIL was over to watch Riley. We had yummy tofu soup and finally watched Star Wars.
