Wine, Relaxation and Great Friends

Good morning and happy Monday, my friends! Has Sandy come to visit your neck of the woods yet? Apparently, we’re supposed to be getting some of her today and tomorrow – but all I care about is that I don’t have class tonight! Three cheers for not having to drive two hours in the storm! 😀

Even though the storm was all over the news, we had great weather this weekend while visiting our best couple friends, Bobby and Whitney!

Cory and Bobby always want to know – do they look related? 😉

We got up to Northern Virginia around 11:00 on Saturday, and after ooh-ing and ahh-ing over Bobby and Whitney’s new, super cute apartment, we headed to Barrel Oak Winery for a wine tasting and some pizza!

As I’ve previously stated, I can’t tell if wine comes out of a box or out of a barrel. When I’m pounding sipping wine, what really matters to me is that I’m drinking it in good company – and that it doesn’t make me gag (reds – ugh.)

The woman giving the wine tasting was super knowledgable and just as friendly. I liked that she was talking to me about wine while wearing a pink flannel shirt. Not to our surprise, the boys (who makes friends everywhere they go) chatted her up and asked tons of questions.

We, on the other hand, laughed about silly wine lingo, ugly dogs, and old ladies in cheerleading costumes. (Which, by the way, I had no clue this past weekend was technically ‘celebrate Halloween’ weekend. Oops.)

We had so much fun visiting our friends. For the first 20 minutes of our drive home we kept saying “We need to live closer. We need to live closer. WE NEED TO LIVE CLOSER!”

While the drive between us isn’t ideal, I really can’t complain. It was a great weekend with wine, relaxation and great friends. What more could we possibly ask for?! :)

Let’s chat – What’s your favorite wine? Riesling for me!
