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.
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.
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.
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.
