Harvest Crush

Something I should have added to my Fall Bucket List: Grape Smashing!  The Stonehaus is a local winery in our area and has such a fun atmosphere. From date night to a girls lunch, you can go casual or dress up and I always have a fun time.

My friend Sharon, from Mama Chit Chat found an event they were hosting and we knew it would be the perfect girls afternoon! Wine tasting, grape harvesting, and stomping them like Lucy?! I’m in!

I bought this dress months ago and was super excited to wear it. Unfortunately it was my first Knox Rose (at Target) purchase and I didn’t realize how big their items run! I bought my typical size and took the tags off without even trying it on – rookie maneuver, I know. Although it was a little potato sack-like, I still decided to wear it! Since I bought it so long ago, I couldn’t find it in this color online (there is black!!) but I found some adorable options! I just love this brand!

Harvesting was first…although I’m not sure who’s idea it was to give a bunch of wine tasters those sharp cutters 😉 We filled our bucket in no time and quickly headed to the smashing station.

We all dumped our buckets and tried our best not to slip onto our butts while we smashed, laughed, and smashed some more.

So grateful for some “mama time” with one of my faves and an experience that I’ll sure remember! Also grateful that Sharon and I like each other enough to not end up like Lucy during her grape stomping experience, haha!

Five on Friday | National Coffee Day

The last Friday in September…where has the time gone! I’m so excited to bring on the fall activities. I am joining April, Christina, and Natasha for their 5 on Friday link up!

one | As if being Friday wasn’t exciting enough, today is National Coffee Day! You know I will be celebrating ALL. DAY. LONG.

two | Speaking of coffee, I checked one thing off my bucket list! I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte. Every year I have to be festive and every year I feel like its not my thing. But I ordered it with only half of the flavor pumps and it was way better!

three | I got those olive leggings from target a couple weeks ago and I LOVE them! High waisted, stretchy, and perfect for fall. They had a few other styles and I think I’ve gotta head back. They were on sale at the time, I’m not sure if they still are.

four | Sharon (from MamaChitChat) and I got to have the most fun experience over the weekend and I cannot wait to tell you all about it! I love going to the Stonehaus!
