    Thanks for the recommendation...I haven't had a good cab in awhile, but only because pinots have taken a hold of me...excited to try it!

      Another great choice, which is probably really frugal in your neighbourhood is a Californian Brand called 'RED TRUCK' - they make a fantastic cab - here in Ontario it runs around the $20 mark, but since it would be local for you it is prob. a lot less.

      UPDATE:
      FYI - I was at my 2nd moms house last night and she wouldn't let me in the backyard.... SO EXCITING

      I'll be hanging out all morning anxiously awaiting the 2;30 mark, so that I can go over!

            Well Ladies,

            The weekend is over, and I thought I'd let you know how the day unfolded.

            I arrived around 2:30 - as per Mom#2's request - only to find that my BM was there! I was so excited - she is a new mom (baby girl was born on July 2), so I really didn't expect her to travel in for the party.

            The next exciting component of the day was the professional pedicurist that my mom hired to provide services to the ladies. I was so surprised to see this. It was such a nice treat on a Saturday afternoon!

            Six ladies in attendance opted for the pedi, here we all are with a near empty glass of wine

            Aside from the pedicures, we spent the afternoon swimming and hottubing!!!

            In the afternoon, a variety of hors d'oevures were served along with fresh mojitos, and my Mom#2's world famous margaritas.

            The dinner for the the event was a tour of Italy, accompanied by many fine italian wines.

            I was super surpised to be spoiled with a large selection of vintage wines, all of the wines were accompanied with instructions on when they were to be enjoyed. We received bottles that are slated for:
            - our seventh anniversary,
            - the birth of our first baby
            - the day we dig the hole for our new home on the river

            And, many many more... all with different reasons to open.

            I was thrilled and so honoured, what a great event!

            This is me, right after I finished muddling through my speeches/toasts!

                I love the idea of giving vintage wines with a specific date for them to be enjoyed! I am so sentimental and this is something I would love to receive! Looks like everyone had fun!
