What's Hap-"Pinning?" Wednesday {#5}: Wino Edition

The lovely ladies, Amanda and Lindsay who host Wino Wednesdays asked me to co-host their link-up this month and I was eager to join in! So, today, What's Hap-"Pinning" is all wine-inspired! (yep, I can hear your shouts and cheers of Wooohoo from all the way over here!)

The wine I'm sharing with you all is one of my absolute favorites! MG and I discovered it when we signed the contract at our wedding venue and they sent us home with two bottles and we loved it!
It runs about $12 a bottle and you can find it in most grocery stores, and I've also found it at Costco (which is where we often buy it since it's a dollar or two cheaper than the grocery store). 
It has a crisp, citrus taste to it, and is always perfect on a warm evening, or at the end of a stressful day...or a day that ends in 'y'. ;)
According to some research that I did, it pairs well with asparagus, summer salads, lobster, and fresh oysters. Now, I just need to get someone to bring those delicious items to my house and I'll be in wine-heaven!!

And since we're talking about wine, what's hap-"pinning" over here would make any wino a happy camper: 

You all know how much I love a good DIY (but I don't do enough of them), and these wine-inspired ideas totally have me wanting to get crafty!

I also love finding fun wine-related accessories, or things that make it easier to drink more wine. Because wine.
Makes me want to drink outside                 and plan a picnic                   where I can bring these!

You guys also know that I love finding funny pins on Pinterest, and these wine-inspired ones  were perfection:

Love this                                   I need this welcome mat                        So cute

Now show us what's hap-"pinning" with you, by linking up with Jessi (a fellow wine lover) and I below!

To continue on with my month of gratitude, today's prompt was "technology":
My phone is probably the  piece of technology that I'm most thankful for. It allows me to take pictures, stay connected with friends and family, be connected with the world (when I want to be), provides entertainment when I'm bored, helps me get un-lost when I'm driving in a new place, and a bunch of other things that just make life easier. I'm definitely grateful for this piece of technology and all of the things it allows me to do! #Gratitude30

  12. Love the outdoor wine decor pin, how cute is that?!
    Girl, I'm so grateful for my phone as well! Isn't it amazing how connected we stay with it? I mean, we can facetime, etc. Who would have thought just a few years ago that that would ever be possible?!

  13. I've been really into Sauvignon Blanc lately, I need to search for that wine. I have a wine Tervis tumbler and it is awesome. It also coincidentally fits a bottle of beer perfectly. ;)

  20. I've gotten into sauvignon blanc so much this summer especially! I always love seeing that outdoor wine set but we never do drinks in the grass - maybe we should start so I could have a use for it and get it, ha!
