Love and Other Drugs.

Unfortunately Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway aren't staring in drug section of this particular blog.

After the last 5 days I'm seriously considering buying stock in children's ibuprofen and playing the numbers 101, 102, 103 & 104 in the lottery. I don't know what disgusting flu bug my kids contracted, but they got it bad. The annoying thing was they didn't have any other symptom other than a really high fever. Now both of their fevers have broke, however they have developed a lovely phlegm filled cough.

It was the calmest weekend in this household in the last 100 years. You know your kids are sick when they are too sick to torment you for 4 days straight. Looks like we are finally in the clear. Which is good because I think the people at CVS were starting to think I was up to something suspicious will all my kiddy meds.

Valentine's Day with the hubby was great. No scratch that, it was FANTASTIC! We had such a great time. We went to Old Town Temecula and went wine tasting. It was very low key and just my style. I love wine tasting, but the one thing I can't stand is all all the pretentious douche bags who cram into tasting rooms and act like they have any idea what they are talking about.

First stop was Lorimar Winery. Delicious and wonderful pretty much sum everything up here. In fact we are going to go back and become members so we can take friends there for tastings.

Next we strolled to Stellar Cellar Wine Bar. No tasting here, but we did each get a glass of wine and enjoy it outside.

Also I thought they had the most awesome bar!

We decided on one more stop on our Old Town wine tour and that was when we went to my favorite place of the night, Palomar Inn Hotel. Inside was a tasting room for Curry Vineyards. While there our bar tender/wine tasting connoisseur was a blast to hang out with. It was just Bryan, me and this guy (whose name completely escapes me at this point...I blame the wine). We sat in that tasting room and chatted with him for an hour.

Then it was time for my favorite meal...sushi! We stumbled back to our car and headed for some sushi and sake (sake for me)! This was the aftermath of our evening:

When we got home from sushi however we arrived to a very sick child. Justin's temperature had spiked to 103.7, that was pretty sobering. Despite having to walk around in a Hazmat suit for the remainder of the week, I'd say it was a great Valentine's Day.

Poor kiddos! That fever sh*t is scary. I always freak. We're still dealing with a cough in our household too. Luckily, it doesn't wake El in the middle of the night; unlucky for me, it wakes ME up.

Valentine's festivities sound wonderful and right up my alley. If I ever make it out to CA again, I'm confiscating you and we'll go wine tasting.

Wow, you had some very sick kids on your hands. Poor guys, poor mama. Hopefully, the coughs will go away soon and life will be back to normal.

Your Valentine's day celebration sounds amazing and I am just a tiny bit jealous, Chad & I did nothing. We went out for sushi with the kids but, we were fighting :( You will have to take me to some of those places when I come and visit!
