Have a Glass of Wine and You’ll Be Fine!

Disclosure Statement: I was provided a sample product from Mirassou Wines in order to facilitate this review, however, opinions are 100% my own.

‘Tis the season to reflect and take stock of all our blessings, to share good times with family and friends and to simply enjoy the wonderful life that we have been given.  Too often we get caught up in the day to day activities, stuck and struck with stress and anxiety, so when that happens, remember this motto, “Have a glass of wine and you’ll be fine!”

Weekend Wine Party avi

 That’s exactly what my girls and I did on Sunday afternoon, we kicked off the week with fun, food, laughter and of course a couple bottles of wine thanks to Mirassou Winery.

The last time we were all together we had such a good time that we decided to have a day of fun at least once per month.  We all live in close proximity so it makes for an easy commute or walk in case we have too much fun!

Our hostess, Carol, had a spread with more than enough food to keep our bellies full and the pairing of the Brie Cheese and Fig Preserves on a Crostini was a perfect compliment to the Mirassou Chardonnay.

This was our first time drinking a Chardonnay and I normally drink Sweet Reds, however, the California Chardonnay was a light and  refreshing wine which turned out to be our favorite.  The Pinot Noir was a bit too dry for us but we didn’t allow it to go to waste – lol.

Carol hosted the weekend Wine Party

To celebrate the season and commemorate the occasion, the bottom of each glass was painted with chalkboard paint so that we could write what we were thankful for using a white permanent paint marker.

The glasses were a gift and to make the day even more special I shot this short video which was supposed to be the outtakes.  It was too funny not to show it just the way it was so enjoy our antics #memoriesofgoodtimes.

    I wish I could try wine. I wouldn’t know a good wine brand if I saw it. It does look like you and your girlfriends enjoyed it a lot.

    On a side note, I am in love with all of your nails. They are really eye catching.

    1. DelBlogger

      Crystal, it’s okay that you don’t drink wine, I actually only started because they say it’s good for your heart – lol! We had a great Ladies Day Brunch and thanks on the compliment. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
