Natalie said...

We need to go cheese tasting. I heart a good cheese. Wait, is there cheese at this wine GTG? Suddenly it hit the naive person in me that wine and cheese go together don't they? Please say yes? Like I need the calories, but oh well. I'll do push-ups.

I love cheese. I love buying a new kind every time I go to the store. I love that you love vanilla but not chocolate. Everyone always thought I was so weird for that - glad I'm not alone!

Rachel said...

NATALIE - I am soo down for cheese tasting. I've done that in Somona before. Yum! Maybe, I'll bring a little bread & cheese basket to the Wine GTG. That would be fun!

Rachel said...

BB - Dogs=scary. I'm glad I'm not alone on that one.
