Monday already?! My brain is still recovering from the fly-by weekend that happened. What was going to be only a semi-planned weekend ended up being far more busy than I planned. There was beer, there was wine, there were old friends and new friends. There was even singing of the Captain Planet theme song in the back of a limo on the way to dinner Saturday night. All I know is I am looking forward to JUST having a bridal shower scheduled for next weekend. Some of the photos are mine, others come courtesy of Stephen Lyford who is a huge beer fantatic and there are a TON of great pics of the kickoff of Philly Beer Week on his Picasa profile. Here we go!
Amie’s friend Ethan photobombed us
We only stayed at the Opening Tap for a little while. The lines were mad crazy, especially for the bigger breweries. Instead, we hopped a cab and made our way to Bierstube. If you run into a bartender named Andrew, he will supply you with the best beers ever. All I told him was to just surprise me with whatever he thought I’d love and he did very well! I highly recommend this bar.
This was yummy.
Saturday was one of my closest and dearest friend’s bachelorette party. I wasn’t feeling overly fantastic after a night of craft beering it up, but I rallied and made my way to her sister’s house. We had the nicest limo driver ever and ventured to Chaddford and Penns Woods Wineries. I have to say Penns Woods was my favorite not only based on the wine, but also the views.
I wish I had bought a bottle of the white merlot they had us try because it was fricken delicious. I’ll have to make a trip back. They also offer a yoga + wine tasting class on certain dates. I may have to hit that up. ;) The party was low key but a lot of fun. I made some new friends (one who is moving to Argentina and is totally down with me couch surfing her place).
All in all, I think the bride had a fabulous time!
Even though we didn’t do a whole lot other than sitting and eating and tasting wine, I felt totally beat Sat night. I was in bed before 11pm and didn’t roll out of bed until nearly 1pm. No shame. I needed that sleep. I got a few chores done and also made friends with a little cutie that seems to have made its home in our back yard.
He/she is not the first one we’ve discovered, but sadly this is the first alive one we’ve seen. I think one of the neighbor’s cats has been hunting them. :( I hope the little guy makes it, because it is too damn cute.
If you hadn’t noticed, no runs were done this weekend. I’m kind of pissed about that, but am afraid the RWRunStreak is going to have to end for me. I hate that I keep taking on these challenges then something happens to sideline me. The other week during soccer an opponent stepped on my left foot. I thought it was a bruise or something and it wasn’t terribly bothersome. However, the soreness is pretty much not changing and I’m now concerned more damage than just a bruise has been done. I’m going to schedule a visit with my doc to see if I can get it x-rayed and make sure I don’t have a fracture. Til then, no running for this girl. Shit happens, right?
