Wow, what a fun day! Instead of going on a shopping adventure on Black Friday, we chose to go on a WINE COUNTRY adventure! Woot woot!
Oatmeal made with water, banana, greek yogurt, almond butter and honey. Somehow despite all the pounds of food I ate last night, I was stillllll hungry this morning at 7 am! 😉
After breakfast, I grabbed Tracy and we went to the gym. We ended up walking right in at the same time an African dance class was starting and when there’s an African dance class starting, you dance. After a few minutes of hysterically laughing in the back, we got our dance on for an hour and learned some sweet new moves. Yeahhhhhh 😉 After the class ended, we did about a 30 minute workout consisting of medicine ball squats, jumping squats, flying leaps, stability ball push-ups and jump rope. Too bad Tracy lives in Atlanta….she’s a good gym buddy!
Ate an early lunch of a veggie burger on Ezekiel with hummus and hot sauce post-gym—
I think I’ve been hanging out with Hardy for too long and now I’m incapable of making a normal face in photos.
After an initial bust at an olive oil tasting (they were closed!), we headed through the mountains to Mendocino county to taste some sweeeeeet Anderson Valley wines.
First stop: Breggo.
I liked the wines but I liked their big stuffed sheep even more.
Next: TOULOUSE!!!!! (I was obsessed)
(and yes, we all bought those t-shirts because they are AWESOME!)
Toulouse was my kind of winery…..down home style, dogs racing around everywhere, yummy cheesy crackers and delicious Pinot Noir.
Who wouldn’t love a place that’s motto is “too tense? Toulouse!!” bam!
After Toulouse, there was a little trail mix snackie in the vehicle as we continued our journey—
And then the final destination….Rhoederer Estate for some buuuuubbly!
Yum, yum, yum. I liked this place a lot. I’m getting more into sparkling wine as of late. I never really cared for it before but…..it’s just so good when it hits the lips. You know. Actually this visit was HYSTERICAL but I can’t really get into the funny story on the blog…it involved a really awkward conversation and me turning beet red. Trust me on that one.
We were going to go to the coast but the sun was already setting and we were all getting quite hungry (or maybe that was just me), so we started the long, veryyyy windy drive home. A big thank-you to Tracy for being the dd! 😉
We ended our Black Friday adventure at, what else, but a Mexican restaurant here in Healdsburg. My chicken enchiladas were enough to feed a small country.
I ate one of the enchiladas and then was stuffed. I think if I had to pick one meal to eat for the rest of my life, it might just be enchiladas. I’m just sayin’.
I have a belly full of Mexican food right now and my oldest, most broken in pair of jeans on and I am one happy camper. Think about I’m to settle in with a book and call it a night.
