Cupcake Wine. Oh, weird. My first love of the week is vino. Surprise, surprise. And Cupcake is the bomb y'all (and I'm not even southern). I'm a believer that you don't need to spend a ton on wine to find a bottle you'll love. Personally, I prefer the Cabernet Sauvignon or if I'm getting crazy the Chardonnay, but they have a ton of flavors, even for you ladies who prefer the sweet ones.
And, come on, please tell me that everyone grapples with the daily decision of "should I or shouldn't I" like I do? Sometimes the stress of the day just requires it...
TJ Maxx. One of my fave stores went legit online this week.Yet another reason I can just lazy shop from the comfort of my couch. I have to say thank you from me, TJ Maxx. And probably a big no thank you from my husband...and my credit card.
Fall activities. Pumpkin patches, apple orchards, craft fairs, oh my! I don't think I have enough days off to take in all I want to with little man this fall. How did I not know this all existed? I swear my life before child was spent working, partying and sleeping in and I literally missed everything going on around me. Here is our list of 'must sees' this year:
- Vala's Pumpkin Patch...the biggest and best in the area if you ask me. We took Cruzer last year (here) and while it was a great time, he wasn't walking yet, so this year is where it's at. Can't wait to let him run wild and just play.
- Dittmer's Apple Orchard - gala apples. Need I say more. Yum. I'm not the girl who's going to make fancy crisps or pies, but I do keep an apple in my handbag (basically at all times) in case of a bind. Like last night when C and I needed a snack on the road. That apple in my bag came in handy. That's what I do. =)
- Bellevue Berry Farm - berries, pumpkins and at night it turns into the terror ranch. This is my kinda place. Cruz may not like the scary part, but I think we would have some fun with the rest!
- Farmer's Market Downtown - we've been to the farmer's markets out west all summer and we're both fans, but the big shebang is the one downtown. I'm going to make sure we hit that up before the end of the season.
Spinning. Outside, in front of Lululemon at Village Pointe. That's what I'm going to be doing with my girl Morgan tonight and I'm stoked to try it out. Sweat, Cycle & Soul is bringing their bikes and we are going to ride in the fresh air, outside, in the middle of an outdoor shopping mall. Can you say perfect? Looking forward to a little girl time and exercise. Maybe I can talk her into hitting up Kona for a couple happy hour drinks afterwards. Defeats the purpose? Absolutely. Do I care? No, not really. =)
Five on Friday. I am only three weeks into linking up and I've loved all of the people I've connected with and new blogs I've found. A BIG shout out to 'hello happiness', 'the good life blog', 'carolina charm' and 'a. liz adventures' for putting this together and showing up each week! Nice work, ladies.
