Squad goin' up, on a Wednesday

 Good morning! 

Does anyone else feel like they've been hit by a tranquilizer dart this week? Long weekends (in theory) are good for R&R. However, I always spend my time during them bouncing around so much that I never actually get to the 'rest' part. 
^Wine + Mushroom Gnocchi = a happy Wednesday night

But rested or not, I wasn't about to skip my once a month standing date with my girlfriends for "Wine Club" which we had last night. We used to meet under the pretense of "Book Club" however, we could never get our reading simultaneously completed. Thus, we'd waste a lot of time hypocritically b*tching other members out for not finishing a novel even though we were the ones who were ill-prepared last month. So long story short, we cut out the middle man and our very regal community was reduced to just "Wine Club". Mehh, whatever. Being honest with ourselves deserves some credit too!
^Gloriousness at The Bent Brick last night.

So that's what I did last night, even though I was so tired. I'm a soldier, I know. I mustered up the courage to walk down the street and go drink wine at two local restaurants while gabbing with my girlfriends about life. 

But truthfully, that's always something I'll try to make it to because the reality is that it's when we all do our best chatting and where I get to hear about all the little details in everyone's life that we miss as we envelop ourselves in our own little worlds on the day to day.
^Pinot Grigio at The Triple Lindy
No men allowed. Good Wine. Outstanding food. And a set three hours to focus on our friendships.

Exhausted or not: Count me in.

Perfect rules to give yourself a little time out, even if you need a nap or three haha

Who has time for rest? There's living to be done!

But I can see you've already got that sorted with your wine nights. Good work ;)

Haha, I like how it became the Wine Club instead. I love reading but I would not do well with a book club. I can't be obligated to read something. I will dislike it.

Too funny--I like the metamorphosis of your meeting group. I'd like to use that approach more in my life: "standards work subcommittee" should become lunch review club or "basketball fundraising group" should be "hiking and cycling group." I'll have to work in that...

So important to take the time to do that! My BFFs are spread all over and I miss being able to do that on a regular basis!

That sounds like a great way to unwind at the end of a busy week. I am glad you can be honest with yourselves and just admit you were there for the wine and not the books!! ha, ha...
