2. I bought this dress at Target and I am obsessed. It's the best $27.99 I've spend in a long time. And I can totally see this with leggings and boots for when the temps around here cool down.
3. Joel and I have decided to plan a few date nights for each other for the next few months and so the first date was one that I planned. I wore the Target dress and found the BEST wine bar ever.
All thanks to Jeff Lewis and Jenni Pulos from Flipping Out.
I searched for a screenshot, but with no avail - however, this is the place that Jenni hosted her engagement party. The wine bar looked right up my alley on the show, and so I thought I'd give it a try for our date night.
As you sit at your table, the server presents you a "hotel" key card. They have machines set up, like the picture, that when you insert the card, you can pick your wine and it will pour exactly 1.7oz of wine. The card constantly shows you your balance so you don't end up getting totally surprised at the end, which I thought was a smart touch.
They have about thirty or so bottles to taste, and what I loved was that it kept Joel and I walking around the bar, trying different wines, and talking about different flavors. It was a unique bar, that served just the right amount of food and I can't wait to go back. I highly recommended it for a date night, or low key girls night if you are in the Mid-City area. *Parking was $5 for valet.
4. I finished the new Jenifer Weiner book, The Next Best Thing, and was totally underwhelmed. By far the slowest, dryest, and least interesting book I've ever read by her.
5. I've been looking forward to Saturday night all week long. Dawn is hosting a girls night where everyone is bringing wine and cheese to share. Girlfriends, cheese, and wine....what more could you need?
