Wine Talk.........


So, with the response to the last wine talk I am guessing this is something we all like ;) It really did feel good to just let it all out and I really loved hearing that you guys feel the same way a lot of the time. 


So here we go................

* Todd ended up getting sick on Monday night. By Tuesday morning he was pale, had fever, a sore throat, and could barley move. I felt so bad for him and knew it was up to me to hold down the fort. I know I sound completely lame, but I immediately had a rush of anxiety come over me. I've mentioned it before, but Todd is a BIG help around here. I didn't realize how much I take all his help for granted until I had that one full day without him. Needless to say, I didn't sit down one time on Tuesday, that is, until my head hit the pillow at 9:30 pm. But you know what, I think this was just what I needed. A little perspective on how a lot of women have it every single day. So all this to say, working mamas, stay at home mamas with husbands who work late, stay at home mamas who's husbands don't help, and all the single mamas............y'all are my freaking HEROS!!!! You guys rock and you should be told that more often! 


* The other morning I went downtown to take a few things back. There was a parking space right in front of the store that I needed to make my returns! That NEVER happens in downtown Charleston. You know what else never happens.....me being able to parallel park. Yeah, to give you a little visual, I failed my driving test the first time because of this. The second time, I think the guy just felt sorry for me and he passed me. Well, I whipped my SUV in there like parallel parking was my job y'all! I may have even stopped and stared doing a little raise the roof action in the car when I looked down and also saw that I had about 15 quarters to park! So, I took my time and even browsed a little in the store. When I walked out the store I saw that little yellow ticket on my windshield. I was like, WTF!!! I then looked at the meter and like only a true blonde would do, I fed the meter for the car behind mine!!! I swear, one of these days I'll get it all together! Ha! 


* So about two weeks ago I finally decided to give yoga a try. One of my best friends takes it every week and she loves it!! I was a little hesitant because I just didn't think it was going to be my thing. But hey, you don't know until you try right? Well, that shit was BAD!!! I mean, I was tempted to excuse myself at one point. My girlfriend looked over at me in the middle of the class and said, "Oh God, you're never going to talk to me again are you?" I gave her a wink along with my shit-eating grin and said, "Hell no!" I can't exactly explain why I hated it so much, but here's a few reasons that stick out in my head: 1) I had no idea what any of the words or moves were 2) I am not flexible at all 3) The smell had be gagging (no really, all jokes aside, I gagged 3 times). I have a really sensitive nose and all that sweat in such a small room was not working for me! Needless to say, that was my first and probably my last time in yoga! 

* We are heading out on a ski trip in two weeks! I can't decide if I am more excited about skiing myself or laughing at Todd attempting to ski again! I LOVE to ski, and honestly, I am pretty good at it.  Last year was Todd's first time ever skiing, and let me just say, it was the highlight of the trip! He is very competitive and very determined. He was not giving up and he sure as hell wasn't going to stay on the bunny slopes! No, he thought the black diamond was a much better idea. I was so nervous when he said he wanted to try it so I suggested we let a ski instructor watch us both go down a green and let the instructor decide if we were ready.  He agreed, so I came down pretty fast and smoothy with no falls. I look behind me and here comes Todd backwards down the slope. The instructor looked at me and said, "Ma'am, you're good to go, but you really need to keep your husband over here for the day!!" Todd got the the bottom and said, "Well, what did the instructor say?" I laughed and said, "He said you need to stay over here today, honey." Oh, that pissed Todd off and he could not for the life of him figure out why the instructor would say that. Haha!! Needless to say, he went down the black diamond numerous times......with quite a few falls ;)  Oh goodness, wish us luck and pray for no broken bones in two weeks! 

And what's wine talk without some hilarious e-cards!?!

  2. Girl I love this series. When I took my drivers test, in nj, you were allowed to fail one thing. I told the guy that I couldn't parallel park so I got to skip it completely...at 40 years old I still can't do it and I am ok with that!!!!!

  3. I was sooooo excited to see this on my FB news feed and rushed right over! I HATE parking downtown. I get a ticket every single time. Maybe I'm feeding the wrong meter too! Ha! I love skiing and hate yoga too! Well, I don't hate yoga, but I throw up every time I leave the class because I'm so hot and dizzy. Ugh.

  4. Love wine talk :)

    I totally feel you with the parrallel parking issues... One time I found a spot outside a really crowded restaurant where everyone happened to be eating outside. After 5 failed attemps at getting into the spot correctly, two police officers came over and one directed traffic, and the other made me roll down my window as he coached me through it! When I got out of the car everyone eating at the restaurant clapped for me!! I was dyinggggg

  5. I love these sort of posts! Haha, parking downtown is a nightmare. I get so embarrassed when I can't parallel park - half the time I just end up driving away.

  8. LOL! love this. I'm not that fond of parallel parking either. I only learned it to pass my driving test; after that, I avoid it whenever possible, no matter how close the parking spot is ;)

  14. Don't give up on yoga! its so good for your body and mind ! and spirit ! it helped my anxiety massively ! the secret is to finding the right class for you ! small rooms and too much sweat is the wrong class ! find another studio and try another class ! get your friend to show you some moves before hand, that way you have an idea of what is what ! good luck ! I swear yoga saved my mind !

  15. LOL! I agree with the working out inside a small space. I just feel like there are too many germs and so that's why I opted to working out outside or in my home. Plus, I couldn't stand wiping down someone else's sweat. YUCK. Anyway I run or walk almost everyday in a beautiful park by my home and breath in all the fresh air. XOXO

    Congrats on that parallel parking! I know that's not easy!

  16. So funny about the yoga. I decided to try out hot yoga and decided it was not for me! A small, dark room with the heat cranked up is not fun to me. But, I did love the yoga part of it. I took my first Barre class this week and loved it!!

  17. Oh my! I absolutely love this post! Thanks for sharing "real life" moments with us!

  18. Loved this post but so wish it was over wine/champagne rather! My husband also does so much so when he travels for work, I really feel the load. I'm not a yoga fan at all - definitely not for me! Although I really enjoy Pilates - have you tried that? Those e-cards are all for me - hysterical! x

  19. I really love this wine talk series!

    I can't parallel park either! And I'm too embarrassed to try when it's busy or other cars are coming.

  20. This is great!! haha I thought I was not so good at skiing...that is until I went with my husband a few years ago, who is also usually good at most things he does, but not skiing! It was so funny to me to watch him! He decided having an adult beveridge and watching the skiiers might be more his thing. :) Have a great weekend!
