…until I just referred to myself as a “grown up.” Let me essplain.
Sunday morning I woke up and did NOT want to run. what else is new? As I laid in bed, I kept coming up with reasons not to run or what time I could move the run to.
I told myself I would run later in the evening, after a birthday celebration for 2 of my friends. yeah right, like I would want to run 4 miles after a day of food, wine, and cake…
I got out of bed, moved around a bit, and finally talked myself into running.
So glad I did. It was only a 4 mile shake-out jog. I got a couple of TV shows deleted off of the DVR AND got my workout in. #winning
After my run, I showered and got rid of my B.O. stench so I could meet up with some girlfriends without hate-stares.
2 of my friends, S and P, from work had their birthdays in late October. Unfortunately, due to crazy schedules, the only time we all could meet up was on Sunday. Better late than never!
My friend SK and I planned a semi-surprise day of fun for them. We all agreed to meet up in Pleasanton, and then I would drive from there. That’s all S and P knew 🙂 I really like other peoples’ birthdays.
SK and I took the birthday girls to a Thai lunch. We feasted on delicious food, but I told them don’t eat so much that you have to unbutton your pants, cause we got dessert comin’.
I then drove everyone to…
I found out that there are actually 2 different tasting rooms for Wente Vineyards- The Estates and Vineyard Tasting Rooms. We went to the Estates.
They offered 2 different flights. 2 of us tried the Legacy, and 2 tried the Harvest
Guess what guys?! I’m a real grown up now! I tried 5 wines and actually ENJOYED them! I’m freaking sophisticated yo. Oh and I also discovered that I enjoy white wine.
P.S. I’m kind of a major lightweight so I only drank all of 2 of the tastes. The other 3 I just took a sip and let the other girls finish <–I think I just got a lot of invites to wine tastings 😉
After drinking our adult grape juice, we made our way to their patio area for surprise cake.
I had picked up a few bundlets from Nothing Bundt Cakes and threw them in a cooler in my trunk.
We enjoyed our cake and chatted until closing. They were literally taking the patio furniture cushions away when we left. I bet you they normally keep the cushions out and just wanted to hint at us to get out.
Our original plan was to take the girls shopping after the wine tasting, but we took so long being chatty Kathy’s that we didn’t have time!
After my awesome girls’ day, I headed home for dinner and then stopped off at Kyle’s house for some snuggle time with my BFBFF (boyfriendbestfriendforever).
It was a great ending to the weekend…but too bad it was just that. An end to the weekend. I woke up on Monday and wanted to throw my alarm clock into a garbage disposal.

Do you sleep in compression gear? Duh, it’s amazeballs.
