I'm Curious

If you notice someone staring at you and you glance back once in awhile to see if they are still looking - does that mean that you are staring at them too?

99 In The Shade

What do you get when you mix 38,000 people, 21 vineyards, and 105 degree weather? The Temecula Balloon & Wine Festival! On Saturday Josh, Lauren & I sprayed on the sunscreen and hit the desert.

It was a full day but it seemed to go by pretty fast. We started off the afternoon with a performance by Howard Jones. I didn't recognize his name but Lauren is a huge fun so we watched the show. Turns out, I know more of his music than I thought I did.

After the show we hit the wine tents for samples. My pick of the day was the Almond Champagne from Wilson Creek Winery. Mmmm! I'm not really a champagne kind of girl but I really enjoyed it! I didn't get to try as many of the wines as I would have liked so if anyone is interested in going on a tour of wine country - let me know!

There was a top 40 band playing on the side stage who managed to turn "Golddigger" into a ska song. Needless to say, they weren't the best but they did get all of the drunk people dancing. Some of the people were funny, some of them sad and some just made me feel dirty watching them! It was very entertaining...

The big finale was the balloon glow which was pretty cool:

My only wish was that there were more balloons flying around during the day. They were out at 8am and didn't return until after dark. Do you think that they couldn't fly during the day because of the heat? That's the excuse that I'm going with....
