Date Day

The hubs and I hit up a a local winery today. We embarked on date day (think date night, but during the day). It was loads of fun. The winery had a BBQ lunch event and we wanted to go check it out. You paid $5 for a tasting glass and 5 tickets. With each ticket you could taste one of the wines. Some were good, one was bad and one was FABULOUS! The LuLu wine was like a strawberry blew up in your mouth. I am not a fan of sweet wines, but this one knocked my socks off. It wasn't sugary sweet, just the perfect fruity punch! I found my new favorite summer wine. I even bought an extra bottle to have on hand for a gift. The bottle is so cute too, it has a big red lips on it; very girly. We actually decided to skip the lunch at the winery but we sat at a table on the patio of the house there and enjoyed a bottle of vino. Then we headed back to town to have pizza at one of my favorite places, Savastano's. The salad bar is great and the pizza is amazing. We ate til we were stuffed and brought home the rest of our pizza. Once we got home we sat and ate the rest even though I was miserable, it was just so dang delish!

If you haven't gone on date DAY, I highly recommend it. Now we are home early and ready to watch the last 4 episodes of True Blood so that we are ready for the new season.

We were just discussing a date day today. With the twins we sure need it. Just to regroup and get a breath in.
PS: This IS the winery that my friends went to the same day you did. I was thinking it was another one.
