Woodinville/Bday weekend!

So something amazing happened gosh almost 2 weeks ago now!
So I turned 21!
OMG YES. finally! 

I turned 28, head hung low... 30 is CREEPIN!!

Anywayyyyyy. Something amazing DID happen. Eddie & all of my friends out here in the Pac NW conspired against me and planned one of my most epic bday celebrations to date.

It started with having my college bff and savior Jocelyn fly out here to SURPRISE me! This girl flew alllll the way from Boston to surprise ME! I felt pretty special.
My coworker/seattle-best was in cahoots with my husband to make it all go down smoothly. They surprised me at Hillards, a new brewery in the Ballard neighborhood which I HIGHLY recommend.

The following day my huz gathered all of our friends together to wine taste our way through Woodinville, something that has been on my bucket list since we moved out here!!

Miss Jocie & I at the first tasting. A gorgeous little place DeLille Cellar

I LOVED this place and highly recommend going for a tasting. They had heated tents with cute rustic
 light fictures hanging. The wine wasn't too shabby either I think multiple people in our group bought a few bottles here.

Such a bittersweet day for me. I LOVE each of these girls so much. It was great to spend time together knowing I was leaving in a few short weeks!

The whole wine crawl crew.

On to the next tasting at Efeste. Keeping it classy with the BL's in the Caddy (Cadillac, DUH we are ballers!) !

Efeste was cute, definitely not one of my favorites of the day. They did have an open kitchen in the tasting room where they did cooking demos which I'm sure would be fun to attend!

Moving ON.

This place was hands down the showstopper of the wine tour!

It may've had something to do with the serious cheese platter.. or the fact that the wine was some of the best I have ever tasted! The South African owners were quite the hostesses!

Tasting in the barrel room! 

Gorgeous Woodinville! OH how I'm gonna miss you!!

After Betz all gloves were off. We were in a full blown purple lip frenzy.

Our next tasting at Alexandria Nicole Cellars was all down hill, but that doesn't mean we didn't have the best time!

The real mess ensued when we ended our night at Red Hook..

nuh-nights (this pic isn't any larger for your benefit).

And that my friends was my best birthday celebration to date!!!!!
