Our 4th of July Celebration

I realize this post is coming over a week late, but I have been waaaay too busy to even log into Blogger lately : ( However, I think I am finally getting back on track. I have lots of blog reading to catch up on, but since I get back to work starting tonight I plan on catching up these next couple of nights. So, rewinding back to the 4th of July, here is what we did...

We are lovers of wine but we are also two broke people who are full-time students living paycheck-to-paycheck, ha! So, when I found out about a local winery who throws a "Music & Fireworks in the Vineyard" celebration every month throughout the summer, we were sold! July's celebration happened to be on the night before July 4th, so it was perfect : )

The winery provides the music, wine tasting, and a tour of the place. All you have to do is pack some food, drinks, blanket chairs or whatever else you want to bring! We brought some snacks & wine and our blanket to camp out on! We had a wonderful time, not to mention we have some new favorite wines that are locally made! Perfect! Here are some pictures of us while at the winery...












i love, Love, LOVE my picnic basket my MIL gave me : ) : ) : )



Another pic of my basket! It's just too adorable not to have another!


And of course, fireworks...









We had SO much fun and can't wait to go back! We are hoping to go in August too!
