Day trippin’


It’s been a few days since my last post, and here’s why.

Stony Mountain Vineyards

The husband took Monday and Tuesday off, so we had a four day weekend.  He is out of town for work for the rest of this week, so we took advantage of the time off.  We went wine tasting and shopping, and ran all over town.  So I haven’t really been near the computer for blog postings.  We were up at 4:00am this morning so we could leave for the airport by 5:00.  After coming home from dropping him off, I got some sleep, and then I’ve spent most of today catching up on what I’ve missed.  Things should go back to regularly scheduled programming around here starting tomorrow.

For any of you in NC, I strongly recommend Stony Mountain Vineyards in Albemarle.  This was our second trip there, and they have the best wine that we’ve found in NC so far.  It reminds me of what we were used to in CA, so check it out if you are nearby.



About beautyinbudgetblog

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.

  1. Based on that photo, that winery is way prettier than most you’d find in California… Tasty wine is good, and all, but it’s nice to have an inspiring vista to view while drinking it, right?
