Lisa's Vineyard Hopping Birthday

Over the weekend we celebrated Lisa's thirty-second birthday by hitting up a couple of vineyards in the Hudson River Valley here in New York.

We started off the afternoon by meeting up at Lisa and Andrew's house in Westchester and then driving up about an hour to Nostrano Vineyard, where Andrew had made a reservation for the eight of us to do the wine tasting (Which included seven of the estate wines) and eat lovely charcuterie board.


When we were done with our tasting we decided to go sit outside and enjoy the prefect weather. 

While we were outside we drank more, ate another (bigger) charcuterie board and just enjoyed each other's company. It was honestly the epitome of #WeekendVibes.


At some point while we were just hanging out, a staff member rudely informed us that a private event would be starting at 5:00pm. So we decided to leave and go check out Benmarl Winery and Vineyard, which was only fifteen minutes away from where we were.


While at Benmarl we ordered a few bottles of wine and a couple of pizzas, and just enjoyed the view (Which was spectacular) and each other's company.


Eventually we decided it was time to pack it up and end our lovely day because four out of the eight of us had to drive back to Long Island.

It was honestly the prefect day to do what we did. And aside from the rude employee at Nostrano we had an amazing day hanging out and celebrating the birthday girl.

Squad Fishing Trip

Last weekend a bunch of us went fishing on one of the boats from the Laura Lee Fleet out of Captree State Park here on Long Island. Here are some of the photos I took in Huji Cam...


I was planning on taking way more photos (Especially of the squad) than I did but the trip was kind of a cluster fuck. Toni and Jamie both got sick while on the boat (We might have gone out drinking the night before, which in hindsight was a horrible idea). Chris, who is the reason we threw this shindig together, got scare of being on the boat and spent almost the entire trip in the cabin with Toni. So because of those reasons and actually fishing while on the boat, taking photos fell by the wayside.

But yeah, it was an interesting trip. I don't know if we'll ever go on another squad fishing trip but I think I'm okay with that.

Would you attempt to orchestrate a trip like this with your friend? Lemme know!
