Wait a minute, wait a minute.
I know a lot of big things happened this week.
Movember/No Shave November ended. I mourned the lost of beardy men all over. I had the best grilled cheese of my life. MTV’s Buckwild trailer premiered. News of Girl Meets World swept the internet. But, for me, there was something even more momentous that went down.
There were highlights from both.
1. A Match Made in Heaven
2. Road Wine
Ever think that you’d like wine a lot more if it tasted and smelled like apple pie and Christmas?
Alpine Spice, from Sand Castle Winery in Bucks County. Serve warm in the winter. Consider yourself educated. Get this wine.
3. New Friends
I made a few, but I don’t wanna start blogging about them without clearing the air. However, I did meet this one stud…. He was the strong, silent type, but I think he liked me.
4. Pasta Salad
Yeah, that doesn’t always sound like a highlight. In fact, at most silly picnics and potlucks, I don’t really get excited over pasta salad at all. But, if it’s oriental pasta salad…. all bets are off.
Making this, POST-HASTE!!
5. Whiskey Wednesday (or Sunday. Or every day.)
I don’t even like whiskey. 90% of the time, the sound of the word “whiskey” makes me feel like running away in fear. But what about when the words BEFORE whiskey are “Salted” and “Caramel”?
Here’s hoping there’s a boozy cider night in my VERY near future. Because I brought a bottle of this bad boy home with me. Courtesy of Philadelphia Distilling… CRAFT LIQUOR, Y’ALL!!
6. THE BEARD LIVES ON!!
So, for some fancy beer guys, No Shave November is more than a fundraiser. It’s a lifestyle.
Here’s to one of the best beer beards I’ve seen in Philly, a la Yards Brewery.
And, with the end of the semester looming quite menacingly on the horizon, it’s back to reality.
Oh goodness, it was just so nice to not be in a library for a weekend…..
