wined up.

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

this weekend involved a lot of wine... perfect.  we jetted off for an adventure friday night to a nearby winery:

convertible rides. homemade pizzas. wine tastings. sunsets. twinkle lights. rows and rows of grapes. dogs that loved us and our food. yatzee. good friends. long talks. cute little bands. the stars.

I'd say that's a pretty great way to kick off a weekend.

Saturday morning involved a little sleeping in, a little lazy morning, a little bully cuddles.  Then I was off to watch my sister star in yet another play, The Wizard of Oz, which was incredible!!  She is so talented and special, it honestly melts my heart.  Meanwhile husband enjoyed himself quite a lot at Wingfest... yep, chicken wings and beer. The guys and gals happily gathered up together later and spent the night talking, eating and laughing at youtube videos.  Very nice and much-needed.

Sunday we woke up early, opened the windows, turned on the record player, and started cleaning (and dancing)!  Cinnamon rolls must have given us a lot of energy.  Then I headed off to Kathy's baby shower... hard to believe how fast things are going by!  It was, of course, the lovliest, prettiest, girlish shower I have ever been to.  A truly magical day filled with cake balls, friends and family, and tons of little, itty, bitty, tiny, mini clothes.  I am squeeling on the inside just saying that.

Sunday evening settled in way too quick.  In an effort to prolong the weekend adventures, we ordered chinese and settled in for some good tv. It worked... but only for a little while. I truly have a wonderful, wonderful support system in my life.  And while things are still very hard right now, being able to rely on others makes it easier. Especially you husband- thank you for the wake-up call (sort of).
