I love short weeks! Don't you? They always seem to go by in a flash because you are trying to cram everything that you do in a normal week into just 4 days. So, it's already Friday! Yippee! I have to say, I had a great weekend last weekend. Normally we are up in New Hampshire for Labor Day Weekend, but we had a wedding to attend last Sunday, so we couldn't go! I was pretty bummed about it at first, but we had an action packed weekend which turned out to be a blast. On Saturday, Matt and I played a few holes of golf and then headed to the King of Prussia Mall to take advantage of some of the Labor Day sales. We bought bedding for our guest rooms, throw pillows, throws, and all types of decorative things. Homeownership is fun. Then, we had our friends over for a fancy cheese party. By "fancy cheese party", I mean that the cheese was fancy...not the party. I was still in my golf clothes from the morning. I put out enough cheese to feed a small army, so imagine my surprise when we managed to finish almost all of it. Very impressed. After the cheese, we grilled up some meats and then we built a fire and made s'mores. Nobody left hungry that evening. On Sunday, we had the wedding (we girls pretty much had to crisco ourselves into our dresses due to the cheese from the night before...). Tito's was flowing and the dance floor was open for biz. Lots of fun with all of our friends, and the couple looked so so happy all night. All these weddings that we have been going to is giving me anxiety over the fact that I have finished what feels like next to nothing for our big day. I started registering and it said "241 days until your wedding" and I almost had a meltdown! On Monday we played 18 holes and then we took naps (because of too much fun).
Speaking of naps, I bet Kevin and his crew could use one. They have been picking and processing grapes all week! They will finish picking all the white grapes this weekend and then they will more than likely start picking Merlot towards the end of next week. If you follow us on Facebook, you have probably seen some photos and a video. That has been life for them everyday this week! What was not pictured in the photos was a tractor breakdown, swarms of bugs and mosquitos, and this heat... Ahhhh life in the vineyard!
Don't they look delicious? They totally are!
Hard at work. They are the best!
Sweetest grape juice you have ever tasted. SO GOOD.
While I've got you here, I wanted to let you know about a few upcoming events! First one, tomorrow. I will be at the Doylestown PLCB store tasting all of our wines. Well, I won't be tasting them...but you could be. I will be pouring them! It will be from 2-4PM at the Veterans Lane location. In addition, we released 2 new tour dates; one is Thursday, September 22nd at 3PM, the other is Monday, October 10th at 3PM. The Monday date is Columbus day. Hopefully you work for the banking industry and have off so that you can join us! We also have a few tasting dates in the works for some additional PLCB stores the first week of October. I will add them to the calendar when they are firm!
I hope that you enjoyed this week's post and I also hope that you have some fun plans for the weekend! I know that I do. I can't tell you what tonight's plans are because...well, I will explain it next week. As for tomorrow, Matt and some buddies are playing in a charity golf tournament, and once I finish up at the state store, I will head up for the after party with their significant others. Should be fun. On Sunday, Mom and I are going to the Restoration Hardward outlet to see if we can find any good deals (or steals as I like to call them). I hope that you enjoy the weekend. It is going to be HOT. Perfect for a cold glass of Rose! Until next time...
