Wine Date...

Thanks to our Jewish family and friends, I only had a 3 day work week last week.  Who doesn't love Rosh Hashanah!!?  Since the weather forecast predicted a beautiful day, I convinced Nick to play hooky with me.  We decided we'd have ourselves a "date day."

After a few hours hunting for some new furniture for our master bedroom sitting room (much more on this big project later in the week!), we headed to lunch at The Wine Kitchen in Frederick.  It was the perfect day to sit outside and enjoy a nice lunch along the creek... and a glass or two of wine!  They had a great 2 course lunch special, so I had a fabulous steak salad and Nick enjoyed his beloved pork belly.

My date for the day!

After lunch, we decided to try out our local winery, Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard.  We've driven past the winery several times and always have commented that we need to stop in for a tasting one day, but it just never happened.  Sadly, we only live a few minutes away.  So, off we went for an afternoon of wine tasting and a cheesy snack.  There were lots of hikers coming down off the mountain, so we joined the crowd on the patio and people watched while sipping on some vino.  

Everyone needs an "adult" day every now and again.  Georgia had a fabulous day with her friends at school and Mommy/Daddy got to spend a glorious day shopping, eating and drinking away the afternoon!
