hiking boots & pinot

wine & shoe shopping!
last night Jake & I went to REI to do some hands-on (or feets-on) reconnaissance for hiking boots. lo and behold we arrived and it was the REI Member Christmas Party! we had no idea and it was the greatest accident ever.

s'mores bar! I made a nutella version
 great music, games, wine, beer, popcorn bar, make your own s'mores bar, oysters freshly shucked, interactive prizes, a snow simulator, bon fires, oh my!

Caleb & Walter quintet

Patagonia featured Talyor Shellfish

popcorn bar!

we did manage to still get some "work" done testing boots (Jake's wearing the 5 10 tennie approach shoe & I'm sporting the Asolo Tacoma hiker). neither of us committed because we still want to test a few more products. I will say that I'm strongly leaning to purchasing the Vasque Talus.

snow simulator fun

  1. Snazzy party! Shucked oysters?? Smores over sterno? And I have to say, folded chairs around a fire never looked so inviting.
