Newport Wine Festival

Just a few things to be jealous about:

- An AH-mazing weekend with some of my most favorite people in the world
- Lots and lots of good wine, good food, good people, and good conversations
- Beautiful scenery
- A one hour (give or take a little) road trip that made me laugh until I almost peed my pants
- A Monday off
- Making summer a little bit sweeter and a little bit longer

 Okay I am done bragging about all the fabulous things that surrounded me this weekend...but it was a great weekend.  As I had mentioned I went to the Newport Wine Festival with some of my near and dear girlfriends on Sunday and we had more fun than you can imagine.

A few photos for your viewing pleasure...

Aloha Friday



In the spirit of the weekend I wanted to post a little something about wine.  And I know what your thinking - is she crazy, wine isn't just for the weekend it can be enjoyed on the weeknights too!  So true and I couldn't agree more but me and my best gal pals are heading to the Newport Wine Festival on Sunday, so I thought it only appropriate to start the whole weekend off right with a post about wine.


For all of you wine enjoyers out there here is one to try - flipflop wines.  For every bottle of flipflop wine purchased, Soles4Souls will distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need.  That is pretty awesome, so you can enjoy your wine and also give back a little.  It is also tasty and wallet friendly...so just buy some already.  

Stay tuned for our trip to Newport this weekend and pray we all make it back for work on Tuesday (yes we we all took a long weekend). 

Happy Aloha Friday everyone!
