You guys. As I am writing this...snow is falling. WHAT THE HECK!? Last Friday it was 70 degrees. Maybe it is snowing today so that it makes sense for you to mull some wine? That has to be it. Otherwise, it makes no sense at all. I am glad that it chose today to snow and not last weekend, because last weekend was my bridal shower! My grandmother threw it for me...she's the absolute best ever. My brother and sister-in-law flew in from Chicago, my cousins came down from New York, and Matt's sister and sister-in-law came in from the Reading area...on top of which all my pals came (including my best friend from college who I haven't seen in about 3 years!). It was great. I went off diet for Saturday...which means that I had some (I kept it in check...mostly) mimosas, red velvet cake, and then some of my dad's world famous linguini with clam sauce and garlic bread. It was totally worth it. My dad's linguini with clam sauce is out of this world. It is probably all the butter and garlic that is in it...which makes garlic bread the perfect accompaniment (because more butter and more garlic and more carbs!).
So, like I mentioned above, it's snowing so that you can make some mulled wine. Which is great because it is Mulled Wine Day. How appropriate! Do you like mulled wine? I feel like it is OK...I would much rather have a spiked cocoa, but to each their own. Shaina loves mulled wine (which is why we have a "Shaina's Famous Mulled Wine" recipe). I've posted the recipe here before, so instead of posting it again, I will link you to our Facebook page where Shaina posted it today: https://www.facebook.com/KaramoorEstate/. I bet she will be making mulled wine today when she gets home from work! As I sit here writing about the snow and mulled wine, I am just realizing that this morning I did not wear a jacket...NOT GOOD. I guess it is lucky that I do not have to walk too far to get to my car!
We only have 2 tickets left for next Friday's tour. The tours (in case you are wondering) have been going really well. Did you know that I give the tours? I talk non-stop for about 2 hours (lucky tour attendees!)...well, almost non-stop. Kevin chats for a little while about winemaking and Shaina helps with some of the chit chat during the tasting portion. The tours are so fun for us though. I really have enjoyed each and every one of them because the groups that we have had out have been so awesome (and I know the rest of the team agrees). Karamoor wine fans really are the best!
Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend? Tonight I am heading to the gym to workout (and will follow it up with some Indian food, but not my normal pre-wedding diet meal :(...not really too much of a sad face though because what I get now is prettttttttty delicious) and then tomorrow Matt and I will probably workout in the morning and then we have plans to go to the mall with our friends. The main purpose of the mall trip is to help my friend find a dress for our wedding!!! Also, Matt has to pick out bow ties...and a tuxedo shirt (not to be confused with a tuxedo t-shirt) for himself. His tux came in this week. It is blue and I really like it. He looks quite dapper! Anyway, I hope that you will be doing something a little more exciting than going to the mall...but if not, maybe I will see you there! Until next time...
