My Weekend Snapshot 9.15.12 {Wine Festival, Gymnastics and Gardening}

What a GORGEOUS weekend we just had! I spent my weekend enjoying the beautiful weather, family and friends. Saturday started off with my daughter, Payton, taking her first gymnastics class. She was overly excited to meet new friends and to spend time with her mama in the parent and tot class.

First Day of Gymnastics

Soon after gymnastics, my best friend and right hand wo(man), Veronica, went to pick out flowers and plants for my front yard. We’ve made it our mission to make my yard gorgeous for the fall and upcoming spring.

Shopping for the essentials

After visiting the nursery, we headed over to Great Meadows for the 37th Annual Virginia Wine Festival where we met up with my friend, Rachel, and her husband, Brian.

Perfect day!

The afternoon was spent enjoying BBQ, cupcakes, music and wine, a few of my favorite things! Although my favorite Virginia winery is Horton Vineyards, after doing the tasting with Carol at Chateau Morrisette I became an instant fan, thus taking home four bottles. After a fabulous afternoon enjoying the view of the countryside, we then headed back to my house to start our gardening project.

What a view!

I’ve never worked in anyone’s yard before and was fascinated by how much my BFF knew about gardening. I definitely learned a lot and think I may have found a new hobby! I am excited to see what blooms with a little TLC. Stay tuned for updates as we try our best to beautify my cul-de-sac. In the meantime, cheers!

Ready to get started with our project
