I lived :)

My adventures in the woods were actually non adventurous.
I got maaaybe 10 chiggers.  I had to paint my legs with clear fingernail polish. It looks like I have  peely skin. Kinda gross...but I'm glad I only have 10!

It was SO hot that day.  Disgusting hot.  I have never had swamp ass like I did on Friday.

It was actually a lot of fun. I was proud of myself because I don't think I complained at all.

On Wednesday I am going back to the cabin in Blowing Rock, NC!

Dave's Mom and sister and I are going to this beautiful little Italian winery while we are up there! I'm so excited !

I've never been to a vineyard.....which is weird...because I LOVE wine.  Haha....but I've only been legal for a litle over a year...so I guess that explains why I haven't been!

North Carolina is actually home to over 90 wineries! 
Actually,  by the dawn of the 20th century, North Carolina was the leading wine-producing region in the nation.  Crazy...because I've always thought of California as the wine capital of America.

 I can't wait to get some awesome photos...and wine and dine!


What type of vino is your favorite?

**I love white wines!**
Riesling and Moscato are my favorites.

  1. Found your blog from [Life of Meg]'s Monday Mingle...

    I love Williamette (pronounced Will-am-ett) Valley vineyards (Oregon) Edelweiss. It's a sweet light-white wine... LOVE IT!
    http://www.northwest-wine.com/willamette-valley-vineyards.html. Not terribly expensive. I keep a couple of bottles on hand all the time. :)

  2. Going to the winery should be a lot of fun. Hope the chigger bites calm down, and do I even want to know what swamp ass is? ;-)

  4. Lana- I have no filter....and you don't want to know what it is. Just think heat, humidity, lots of sweat and put it together with shorts or tight jeans....and you have swamp ass. Not fun or very attractive either. TMI! Hahaha

  7. Just answering your sushi question!

    There are no good sushi places in Fort Mill but Charlotte has a few and Huntersville has the best one.

    Charlotte:
    Yama Fusion
    Cyros & Sake
    Sushi 101 is pretty good too.

    In Birkdale Village (Huntersville), eeZ Fusion has the best sushi I've had in the Charlotte Metro area. It's my FAVORITE and my husband's as well! :-)

  17. I've never been a wine drinker...Maybe it is because my closest brushes with real wine was Mad Dog and Boones Farm?

  19. Nice to meet you. It sounds like you're having fun in NC. (I always thought California was the wine capital of the U.S. too.) I like blushes and merlots; although, my favorite wine drink is Sangria. I'm now a new follower. Have a great week. http://mommyspirit.blogspot.com
