Huong! We started the day by walking around downtown (there was a car show going on) and eating lunch at The Isaacs Mediterranean Restaurant where I had a hummus wrap which was very good and very heart-healthy! Afterwards, we drove up a winding mountain road to AmRhein's Wine Cellars which was my first trip to a winery and my very first wine tasting! We only tried the whites (I liked the dry better than the sweet) and I bought a bottle of the Pinot Grigio. It was an absolutely beautiful day, the sun was shining but it wasn't too hot and the vineyard was gorgeous! You can see more pictures on my other blog here.
Then we headed back down the mountain, took some more pictures off the side of a road, and got smoothies at Elderberry's. We went shopping at the mall where I bought some really great pieces of clothing. It always seems that when I don't set out to look for something in particular or actually try to shop, I end up finding the best stuff. So, I'm very happy with my purchases! I'm very picky when it comes to clothes, so that's saying a lot.
We also went to Barnes & Noble (of course) and got to see a bunch of cute puppies at the puppy place in the mall where we held the cutest, sweetest, tiniest French Bulldog puppy who fell asleep on my chest. Swoon!
We ended the day by eating at El Rodeo, a Mexican restaurant. Again, the weather was absolutely perfect (Huong can attest to that, lol) so we sat outside on the terrace, the wind blowing slightly and the sun slowly setting behind the Blue Ridge Mountains. Because of my recent obsession with avocados, I had the Mexicana Salad which came with an entire sliced avocado. Needless to say, I ate all the avocado and tomato and guacamole and left most of the lettuce...
How was your weekend?!
