Winery Weekending Highlights

Oooh girls, I need a weekend after my weekend.  Can I get an extension?

This weekend was jam-packed and remember how I said my liver needed a warm up for it? Boy, was I right...
My weekend highlights included:

~These yummy treats from my coworker (soooo delicious!)
~Date night with MG where we got to eat outside and enjoy the nice weather!
~Made the final decision to cancel our May Aruba trip which was SO hard to do, but we knew that if anything happened to a baby in our future, because of a vacation, that we would never be able to forgive ourselves

~Early to bed fell asleep on the couch to wake up early to get ready for my friend's bachelorette party

~Took a super nice party bus to the first winery, Breaux where we did a tasting, enjoyed the view, and then had a picnic lunch outside. The grounds were absolutely beautiful!






~Hit up the second winery, Sunset Hill Vineyard, where we did our own tasting (bought a bunch of bottles, and one of the girls read the descriptions off of the bottle haha) because the place was packed and getting ready for a wedding




~Had so much fun drinking, laughing, talking and getting to know some of the other girls who had come to the party that I hadn't met before, including the bride's two super fun and sweet sisters

~Took some really fun and cute mini polaroid pics
~Had SO much fun that I left my jacket at the winery and realized it halfway back home (doh!) Luckily one of the girls lives out that way and is picking it up for me #thankgoodnessfornicepeeps

~Went out to dinner with the bride-to-be and partook in wayyyyyyy too many more bevies

~Jumped in an Uber with my friend when hers arrived. And not a moment too soon!

~Passed out when I got home, and then woke up twice during the night to the power going off and on because of the major wind storm we were having

~Woke up in the morning and didn't feel like total death (thank you Vitamin B Complex and Excedrin--miracle hangover cure!!), but didn't feel great

~Had our neighbor come by and tell us that her tree had fallen on our deck in the middle of the night! Luckily there wasn't any damage to the grill, and the deck only has some scratches
~Made my way to my parent's town for another Celebration of Life for my dad, that my mom  threw for my dad's friends, neighbors, etc
~Got to love up on this little baby that my parents' neighbor is fostering. She definitely fed my baby fever :)
~Heard lots of "that looks good on you" and "you're a natural" kind of comments.
 Hear that, up there?? I'm ready! :)
sleepy little bunny and those teeny tiny toes!!! :)
~Got to spend time with my HS bestie and her mom, who also attended the gathering

~Made my way back home after a couple of hours, picked up Thai food for dinner and continued to recuperate from the events of the day before. AKA, watched tv and sat my butt on the couch with some Cooper cuddles
Needless to say, it was a REALLY fun weekend, but "daaaaaaaahm Daniel" I'm tired! 
I hope your weekend was fabulous, too!

  24. Sorry you had to cancel your big trip, but better safe than sorry! I would have done the same thing in your position! You can travel somewhere safer another time! Also, b-vitamins are awesome for hangovers, I get B12 shots each week and it has made my hangovers and anxiety levels sooo much better! Hope you have a fab week!!

  27. Looks like a fabulous girls weekend at the wineries! Sorry to hear that you guys cancelled your trip, but glad you were able to make the best decision for yourselves as tough as it may have been.

  34. I had the chance to go to Puerto Rico this July but alas my husband and I also decided not to go. I had so many bites in Mexico a few years ago so we don't want to take the chance now!

    But seriously just go on another winery trip!! It looks so much fun!!!! =)

  38. oh no, that sucks about aruba! thankfully we aren't planning to get pregnant for at least a year after our cruise so i'm not too worried. it doesn't linger so we'll just have to be super careful about.. you know.. not getting pregnant. lol. that baby though, oh so sweet! look at all that hair!

  39. The winery tour looks so fun. My sister-in-law and I did one many years ago and it was way fun and I drank way to much. Hope you are feeling better today.
