Wine & Love is the weekly meme where we all come together to just kinda share the highs and lows of our week – what has driven us to drink – either our woes or celebrations. You can link up over at WalkingWithNora.com.
*Where have the last few weeks gone? I think between the whirlwind trip to Texas, the Bachelorette Party, Wedding, etc I feel like the last 6 weeks have just absolutely flown by. Next week is Thanksgiving!?! For real!?!
*Hot day – cold day – hot day – cold day. We have had the most schizophrenic weather lately. From laying out to tan last week to freezing to death this week… no wonder everyone is getting sick. Thank God for Grapefruit Seed… just sayin.
*Sly. I still cant get used to how quiet it is here. Every time I come home I am reminded that Sly is gone. He used to bark any time he heard the front door open. He was always happy to see whoever was behind the door. It used to annoy me, and I would yell “Shut UP Sly”… now I wish he was here to bark at me.
*I am heading to Atlanta tomorrow for the weekend. We always have a good time up there and it will be good to get away from the house for a few days. We are also going to the Coca Cola Factory which should be fun… even though the only time I will drink soda is if it has copious amounts of liquor in it… but it should be fun anyway. The Polar Bears are cute.
*Diva Holiday Gift Guide. You know, when I started this thing I had no idea what a huge success it was going to be. I have had so much fun checking all of these products and companies out, and I am proud to say I have stayed on top of it and will finish out the month perfectly! At any given time I have up to 13 giveaways going at one time…. check it out. Yay success!
* The Bachelorette Party was absolutely the most fun I have EVER had in one single evening. I dreaded going to Biloxi thinking we were going to be surrounded by a bunch of old people playing slots, but instead we partied with an entire floor of Golfers at the casino bar and then carried the party to the 8th floor. If you are throwing or attending a Bachelorette Party ever in your life – TOTALLY go to a Casino, and take the “Bachelorette Dare To Do It Card Game“…. just trust me, you will laugh till your sides hurt.
*The Wedding was perfect. Being a Maid of Honor is a big deal, and I have to admit even though it stressed me out to the inth degree, it was all worth it in the end. Mary looked amazing and everything went perfectly. The weather could not have been more beautiful, and I have never seen the Gulf of Mexico so calm. I cant WAIT to share all of the pictures.
*Bonus to it being Thanksgiving next week – I CAN FINALLY PUT MY TREE UP!! I have been wanting to since October, since the combination of the Dive Gift Guide and just being a Blogger has filled all of my closets with gifts already for the season. I made a vow to “shop small, shop local” and do 100% of my holiday shopping from Party Plan Consultants, which has been an AWESOME experience, and one I really urge everyone to do. There is just something about getting the personal service from a Consultant and knowing that my purchase is also helping HER to do her shopping this year… not just going to some big CEO’s retirement fund. I am not gonna get political here, but it’s nice to know I am making a difference for someone this year, even if it is just helping her put one more gift under the tree or adding one more side dish to her dinner table. That is, after all, what this season is about right….?
What are your Wines and Loves this week?
