Heidi-ho, folks! I feel out of the PF loop since last week was my first week at the new job, and by the end of the day I just wanted to go home and sob (not really, it’s great). To make up for it, I had a great weekend full of seeing my roly-poly godson on Friday night, and then going wine tasting with Tonya and Mackenzie! I met Tonya before during our first half so I knew we’d get along, but I’m happy to report that Mackenzie is every bit as genuine, awesome, and hilarious in real life as she is on her blog! It was so much fun going to different wineries with them, stuffing our faces with cheese and crackers in the car since it was so windy, and gabbing like we’ve been long-time friends. There were so many quotable moments, but this was my favorite as we were driving to the next winery (I completely ad-libbed):
Tonya: “Okay, turn right here.”
Mackenzie (about a couple minutes later): “Um, this road is starting to look like one in a horror movie…”
Tonya: “No, the main road is at the end on this map, see? We’re fine.”
Mackenzie: “I think that’s what the first person who gets killed always says.”
I’m bummed I didn’t meet Mackenzie sooner for more hang time, but I suppose if ever it’s a great reason to visit Portland (yes, girl, I pretty much invited myself over). And lest you worry since these are PF’ers, Tonya did a fabulous job scoring some 2 for 1 deals (as well as printed out a great map of all the wineries), and we stayed in reasonably priced lodging so that no one was driving home drunk. I was surprised that the lodging was actually nicer than I thought, considering it received a 2-star rating (because, you know, nothing but the best for us! 😉 ). I guess it just goes to show that with some reviews, you just gotta take it with a grain of salt.
Other than that, there isn’t much to report, so I’ll keep it short and sweet. I hope everyone has been doing well and I look forward to catching up with you soon!
Do you like wine? Or you more of a red or white wine? Do you like leather in yours like Tonya? Do you pair it with beef bourguignon like Mackenzie?
