A Winery Visit, Birthday Celebrations, Food, And Fitness

Hi there, everyone!! How has your weekend been?! Mine has been fun and I’m sad it is coming to an end. I am not sure that I am ready for another week.


Onto my weekend!


After work, I came home and did a few things around the house before my husband called that he was on his way home. He wanted Chinese for dinner, so he brought me some won-ton soup to go with my dinner. I had an asian salad kit, fried plantain, and chicken!

We watched Justice League and Master Chef Jr. before bed.


I woke up super early! I didn’t plan on it, but I struggle sleeping in. I had coffee and did some things on the computer until my husband woke up. Mid-day, I went to the gym for a spin class.

When I got home, I realized I didn’t feel well. I was slightly flu-ish and began having sinus pressure. We had a big evening planned, so I made Theraflu tea and got Afrin, which made me feel SO much better!

We headed to Cincinnati to celebrate me and my uncle’s birthdays at one of our favorite places: Valley Vineyards.

Each couple gets a bottle of wine (or beer), a meat that you get to season and cook yourself on huge outdoor grills, unlimited sides, and pie! It is SUCH a fun experience!

I always get salmon and my husband gets steak.

My plate!

My aunt and I! She’s the best.

My brother, cousin and his wife, with my husband and I!

My uncle and I share the same birthday so we always get together to celebrate!

Me, my aunt, sister-in-law, and mamma!

We had so much fun catching up!

By the time we got home, I started feeling crappy again, but was so glad I felt good throughout the evening.


I woke up and went to Starbucks with my mom. We went shopping, while my husband cleaned my car. He’s pretty awesome!

We were supposed to go to my cousin’s daughter’s birthday party, but since I still wasn’t feeling great we went home.

We were super hungry when we got back, so we made some food.

A poppyseed salad topped with leftover chili and a cornbread muffin!

Afterwards, I did some laundry and now we are relaxing until our show comes on.

That’s all for today! Have a wonderful week!

With love,
