Winery Texas Style

I'm back from a much needed girls weekend.  We laughed, we cried (happy and sad tears), we ate, we drank, we shopped, we walked, we sang and we drank some more.  We had the best time and can't wait to do it again.  We went to two different wineries, both were absolutely gorgeous but the view at the first place was amazing!  We also had the honor of witnessing two weddings at both places.  The first one was the best...sunset wedding.  Oh my goodness, you couldn't get any more beautiful. 

We snapped this picture at the Driftwood Estate Winery.  Just as the bride was about to walk to her groom...the sun peaked out.  And look at that Texas hill country...GORGEOUS! 

Of course the girls had to get in some pictures...
Cassie, Lindsey, Marilee, Me

And the next winery...the Duchman Family Winery

After we left the wineries, we drove back to Gruene for dinner at the Gruene River Grille.  Delish!!  We stopped at a couple shops to pick up some goodies for my kids (Christmas gifts) and goodies Lindsey's hubby.  I love Gruene, its one of my favorite places to visit.  I keep saying I'm moving there...and one of these days I just might, LOL!!  I took this picture as we were coming out of one of the shops.  Beautiful pic I think...
That about wraps up my pics for this trip.  As I said, it was a much needed trip with the girls.  Nothing better than girlfriend therapy over wine, food, laughs and tears.  Another BIG trip coming up this weekend.  Look out New Orleans I'm coming your way!! 
Y'all have a good one!
P.S.  I can't believe next week is Thanksgiving already.  Man, time is flying!

Change is all around me, especially at work.  I will admit, I don't like change.  Well I don't like big changes and often times don't handle it well.  I don't feel like I am handling the change at work well at all.  My job responsibilities are being switched around.  16 years of molding what I do is being tossed aside and I'm told "for the time being" to do something else.  I'm a team player and I have no problem helping another department out but what I've been doing is being stripped away from me and that, I don't like.  There are so many questions regarding my current responsibilities, questions that I hope the new guy will sit down and take the time to discuss with me.  For now, its business as usual and I will keep trucking along.  But I'm not going to lie...I sure need to remember everything my momma taught me about minding my p's and q's and Lord, please help me to remember my grace.

Always running behind...but you should be used to this by now.  Well, if you follow this blog on a regular basis, you should anyway. 

Instead of giving you a play by play of our Halloween night, I'm just gonna tell you we ate pizza, tricked and treated, ran over small children with a wagon (our own), ran over feet (mine), upset some kids (our own again) and then commenced on the big candy trade of Halloween 2012.  Here are some pics from that night.  I hope they give you as many laughs as we had that night.  Always a good time when you combine my family and friends. 

Y'all have a good one!
