OK – so newbies to my blog might think that I normally drink a LOT based on the last four days — but I swear this is just a fluke! I’m pretty much alcohol-ed out by this point. 🙂
Tonight was really fun though — a group of us went to my favorite place — The Wine Room!
Before leaving, I made myself a cheese, turkey pepperoni, and cracker plate:
Plus, 1 cup of tomato basil soup:
And a melon slice:
As mentioned, The Wine Room was loads of fun! If you recall, The Wine Room is the sweet wine bar where you can use re-loadable cards to buy 1 0z. or 3 oz. pours of over 150 wines!
My hubby bailed because of a headache 🙁 but Lisette and Danny came:
As did Melissa and her new boy, Brad (who’s very nice; I give him two thumbs up).
And her boy, Derek.
Good times! I think I had about 6 oz. of wine in total.
I had a bunch of whites (Reislings, etc) and a few reds. I also tried a Petite Shiraz Port and a chocolate dessert wine, both of which were amazing! The boys ordered a great cheese, cracker, and fruit plate:
Here’s my plate (plus a little more):
And guess what? Melissa brought me a yummy dessert to try later, and Derek brought me a jumbo pretzel all the way from Tampa!
Yay for good friends!
Oh, I’m skipping my 13.0 mile training run tomorrow because my knees are ALL SORTS OF HURTING. They are terrible for some reason. So, I think my last long run would do more harm than good before my big race. Maybe I’ll hit up the gym or pool instead?
ahh so fun!! and yay for Melissa and her new boo!
can’t go wrong with fruit and cheese platters. seriously one of my most fav. things ever!
sounds like a fun night!
and I vote for pool! (im freezing here!)
