What a great weekend it was! So glad us ladies were able to get together and enjoy each other, kid free, guy free stress free worry free! 🙂
It’s great when you have that group of friends that you may not see often but you don’t skip a beat when you do see each other, its like you pick up where you left off when you were last together. I know all of these wonderful ladies through my husband. They are friends / girlfriends (wives now) etc. of his buddies which have now become friends of mine. Now that most of us are married and there aren’t many more planned opportunities to get together we had to plan something! This was our first annual trip and we plan to continue the tradition.
We started out at Galena Cellars wine tasting room and we had a lovely wine expert Lyz helping us ‘taste’ all our new favorites! Needless to say I left with three bottles of wine and I had plenty more favorites! We enjoyed some appetizers at the Green Street Tavern to hold us over until supper, their Moscow Mule was fantastic, served in a copper cup of course. We split ways from there and a few of us hit up the Sock store, another winery, Finley Grace, a wick-less soy candle place. I purchased some wonderful melting wax to burn this holiday season – I just love it when my house smells like the holidays. We also went to The Great American Popcorn company. I got the Galena mix fresh off the shelf! It was still warm in the bag and oh so tasty! Needless to say Josh, Alice and I ate all of it before I could snag a picture. For supper we went to Fried Green Tomatoes. If you haven’t been there – highly suggested! One of my friends knew the owner and he set us up with some more super tasty wine combinations! And of course we all had to have our share of Fried Green tomatoes – so amazing! My entree was the meatloaf on top of cornbread with mash potatoes – it was a cheat weekend for sure.
We ended the night in a house we rented. Fully equipped with 6 beds for the 12 of us to comfortably sleep, hot tub, pool table and fire-pit! It was so fabulous, we definitely all felt like queens for the day. Excited for our next adventure – maybe we don’t wait a full year to enjoy some extra girl time together – thanks for the great weekend ladies!
