Day 151: Old-aged Wino

Apparently according this test here, my wine taste age is 31. I’m going to pretend that means I’m sophisticated, not that I enjoy wine wayyy too much. My fascination with wine started when I went to school in the Finger Lakes region in New York and I haven’t looked back since!

Day 151: Winc

To manage my love of wine, I’ve been using Winc (or as they used to be known Club W) for almost two years now. Winc is a wine club that has relatively inexpensive wine ($13-$20) that will make you feel pretty darn ritzy.

Day 151: Winc

They have a little bit of everything – from a syrupy sweet white for L to a complex cab for LB. I’ve had so much fun getting a better understanding of what I do and don’t like.

Today was my wine delivery day, which makes this Friday 100% better. How can you not be excited about wine and weekends? Because I love trying a little bit of everything, I have reds, whites, roses, and even some bubbly in this shipment. L thinks that it’s completely rational to only need a few bottles of wine per month, but I just can’t get on the same page as him! What if we have steak one night and pork chops the next night? We need to pop open another bottle!

Day 151: Winc

For the past two years, Winc has helped me figure out that my favorite wine in the world in a Chenin Blanc and that sparkling, dry reds are so incredibly fun. If you’re looking to expand your wine taste, you should definitely check them out! Excuse me while I celebrate this weekend with one of my faves WKND sparkling.

As far as outfits go, today I wanted to be effortlessly Friday chic. This morning I had a meeting with an agency in downtown Atlanta and a doctors appointment with my rheumatologist at 3pm, so I got to work from home between the two. Not going to lie, I absolutely LOVE working from home because I can get so much done while snack on SO MUCH food. It’s a win-win in my book.

Sound off, what’s your go-to wine?

Day 102: Reasons I’m Happy It’s Friday

I am so happy that today is Friday because it’s been another marathon week. Today I can’t wait to get home because:

  1. I have wine in the fridge. If that’s not a reason to celebrate, then I don’t know what is.
  2. L’s parents are coming this weekend. Even though I’m a little conflicted about what to call them (future in-laws sounds pretentious but fiancé’s parents sounds lame), I’m so excited to see them.
  3. Next week my mama is coming to town and I’m take two days off. Cheers to drinking wine promptly at 5pm and playing with ponies.
  4. Next weekend, I’m flying up to Ithaca, New York to celebrate my amazing college roommate T for getting her doctorate of physical therapy. So basically if I do anything stupid while drinking Finger Lakes wine, she can fix me.

I realize that around 90% of this post is about wine, but it’s Friday. So I’m going to call this one a win.

I love these jeans, but I have to wear heels with them. Good thing I have these awesome gold pumps! My shirt is super soft and comfortable – one of my mom’s friends actually gave it to me forever ago. It’s so comfy!

Sound off, what are you excited for this Friday?
