4 Days in St. Louis

Well, an hour outside St. Louis but still.

Recently I packed up a bag, boarded a 6am flight with 2 other friends, and ventured out to St. Louis to celebrate the upcoming marriage of my best friend, Lovebug.  (her name is actually Erica but I rarely call her that).  She’s getting married next year and she wanted a weekend full of relaxing, wine drinking, and girlfriends.  I found us a cabin in Marthasville, MO and it was so incredible. Hard to get to, cell service sucked, but the view and quiet was top notch.  4 of us travelled out from California and 2 others drove in from neighboring areas.  We did a whole lot of nothing. Which was awesome. We enjoyed pizza, and wine, and oh my we laughed so hard.  If you’ve never played the Ellen Degeneres App – Head’s Up – you’re missing out.  I think I almost peed my pants a few times.


Our shopping list for the store.  We made chili Friday night. So yum.

And red solo cups of wine.  Hi Bride!




On Saturday we went wine tasting at a few local wineries.  While I didn’t think I am I wine snob, I will say I did notice the huge difference in wines from what I have here in Cali.  I liked 1 at the first winery and another at the last. The middle one – not so much. missouri19


But the food. OMGOSH everything was so good. I was so happy that every place we went to had pretzels! This was my lunch – a pretzel bun panini style sandwich.


Oh the pretzels.  So good.missouri31



I was educated on caterpillars.  Yes, I was not aware this is a type of one. Apparently the black line helps determine how long winter is.

I can’t wait for Lovebug’s wedding in May.  A chance to see all these ladies again.  missouri42
