Memorial Day Weekend Fun

Hello, Tuesday. I don't think that many of us are pleased to see you today. Personally, I had a near-perfect Memorial Day weekend, and it was hard to see it end.

On Friday night, "R" and I went out to dinner at Spice Bar & Kitchen. Sadly, it was really our first time dining there. We've been in for two private events, but never on our own for dinner. More on this visit later this week...

Saturday brought yard work, which sounds lame but I was totally looking forward to planting flowers and getting our house ready for summer. We spent five hours outside trimming bushes and trees, planting a new bush out front, laying down new mulch, hanging flowering baskets, and potting many colorful pots around the patio and front steps.
It was worth all of the work, but then I was ready to just relax on our patio for the evening.
Sunday, we decided to hit up the wineries out east with Frank and Michelle.
I've only been out there a handful of times, but I always enjoy it! Sunday was a perfect day for it too, a little cool but sunny. The views were gorgeous, the wine was delicious, and the company was great. "R" and I had an amazing day out there hitting up five wineries, with lots of laughs.
We ended the day at Old Mill Winery for a bite to eat and some white wine sangria.
What is your favorite winery in that area? Where do you like to grab food when you're out wine tasting? I already see a return trip in our future this summer.

Yesterday, the weather wasn't in our favor. We didn't care. We headed over to "R's" brother's house, who is quite the rib cook. They hit the spot, and we also enjoyed some sides that just screamed "summer." It was a nice end to the weekend. Now, it's back to the grind.

My favorite hands down is South River. I haven't been to Old Mill - I might have to check that out next time.

Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.
