Giddy-up girlfriends!

Last month (geeze, it's already been a month!) a few of the girls came to visit and see our new house and area!
It's always a good time seeing them and this unplanned random trip turned out to be a blast!

We went wine tasting at the wineries close to our house (thank you, TL, for driving us around) during the day!
 Michelle, Casey & me - it was a beautiful sunny day!
 Kissing the giant weenie dog at Vino Noceto
 Inside the winery!
Picnic & Bocci Ball!

After wine tasting, we went home & vegged out on the couch for a little bit and then... got ready for some bull riding at the local saloon in my town!
 Nova, me, Chelles, & Case
 It was hard to stay on... but way fun!
 Casey on the bull!
Chelles on the bull!
Crazy ladies!
 Casey became the DJ at the bar for the evening.  She was quite a hit! ;)

Have you ever been bull riding?
It was a very fun night... can't wait to see them again!
We missed a few girls, though.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

PS:  My mom took it upon herself to write a comment on the In N Out comments page with a link to my blog - with out me knowing.  In N Out contacted me thanking me for the blog post.  They truly are the best business ever... and my mom is a nut - that's why I love her!
Also, thank you to all the new readers - I love discovering so many great new blogs!

Ahh what a fabulous fun weekend! I HAVE gone bull riding (Spring Break in the Bahamas) and it was insanely fun! (Note to self: Next time you go bull riding don't wear a dress yikes!)

What a great day!
Where do they have a bull here in town? I was just telling a friend of mine last night that I wanted to find one and ride it on my birthday!

I went bull riding a few months ago and it was so goofy but fun! Definitely can cross that one off my bucket list. I told the boyfriend to get a picture of me...I ended up with a blurry beyond recognition phone picture lol!

Looks like you ladies had a great time! I love visiting the local wineries in my area, there's actually quite a few of them.

Thank you so much for the sweet comment! I have been very stressed about this whole decision. Love your blog by the way, I can't wait to see pictures of your home!

looks like you had a fun time with the girls. i've never been bull-riding before... but i've been to a bar that had one, and i chickened out!

Jax said...

Ha! Any time that includes a mechanical bull is a good time for sure! :) And I know I've said this before, but I am So jealous of the wineries located so close to you!
