we had a wine tasting

My friend Katie hosted the most fun Moms night out for the MOMS club! 
Her husband Jason {who I grew up with} is quite the connoisseur and did a fabulous job 
hosting a wine tasting for all the moms. 
It was such a relaxing, fun, educational evening ;-) 
Seriously though, I did learn a lot about different wines, 
how to properly taste and enjoy wine, 
and then I learned about how each of my friends handle too much wine ;-D





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
seriously, the food was yummers
Everything was so tasty and light, which is always nice, 
because you can eat and eat and not notice you're over eating! 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Getting out of the house, to relax with my hubby and/or friends is amazing! 
Its so fun to be kidless every so often, cut loose and enjoy each other's company. 
I'm really thankful for each one of these ladies and the friendship I share with them.

Jason did an excellent job with the tasting. 
He gave us all really nice print outs, with the wine labels; 
explaining how the wine should taste, what to pair it with and how to drink/taste it.

is it bad that I don't remember this picture being taken?! 
I promise I didn't drink too much. 
I don't handle wine very well {at all} so with each tasting I did, 
I had to drink twice as much water, to over compensate 
and keep from getting light headed. 
It worked!  :)

My favorite thing about this picture {aside from Carson's amazing laugh} 
is that she has Audrey in the front pack, while at a wine tasting. I love it!

Oh, I also enjoyed seeing everyone out of "mommy" clothes and all dressed up.

Seriously, how much fun is that!!! I'm so glad you got to go to this, and I wish I had been there too!

It looks like you all had a wonderful time.
I love going to wine parties with ladies! A couple of ladies (from my church) and I went to a wine bar in Missoula last week and had a wonderful time. It is nice to have a little mommy time away from the children.

Em, I wish you could've been there too! It was amazingly fun. I've already told Katie I'm in favor of her having another one :) Maybe a couple's wine tasting would be fun?!

I am always amazed at how much different foods change the flavor of the wine. What a treat!

I was part of a mom's group when my oldest was little. I sure don't remember wine tastings! You guys are so much more fun. :-)

Good job, Jason & Katie! Everything looks beautiful. Now I want some bruschetta.
