Wine and Flowers

Hey! Today I am posting some of my favorite wines... They are all red wines. I am not big on white, i believe its too dry.

  1. This used to be the only type of Red Wine I would drink. This is my favorite brand for Pinot Noir besides Bolt, I believe its called. Not 100% sure. You can get this bottle at Wine market in Greenville SC for $12 and some change. 
  2. This bottle is merlot. Its very tasty. Its pretty cheap too.. I got it at Bi-Lo one night for $8. I like the bottle logo design. 
  3. This is my all time favorite and I can only get it from this winery. It is located in Charleston SC on Market St, and you pick it up or order it for $20.  Lord Ashley is the name of the type of wine (: 
  4. I found this wine one night while I was at walmart. I have never had sweet red wine and this was a big bottle and the label was pretty cool. Well Its my favorite cheap wine. Its sweet and has no cheap wine after taste. Very fruity too.. I paid $6 and some change. 
I brought this wine the other day at Aldes for $3, I havent open it yet, I love the little owl on the bottle very cute(: Has anyone tried this one? 

Our yard after we fixed the flower beds now going to need to add some flowers. (: 

What your favorite wines? Any good ones I could try?

Ps. I created new Buttons! They are the right side, let me know if you grab one and i will do the same for you! Also I have pinterest too!

With each shoot I am hoping to have a make-up artist, but I am not 100% sure. Each photo shoot includes 10-25 photos, 1 1/2 hour photo session time.  I will post prices later.. which I start getting more details together. ( :

Just Busy

Hey yall
I am still here and alive. I just have been pretty busy with life I suppose. This past week I haven't been feeling well. I don't know what wrong, I have the pain in my lower rib area and it is very painful. I have been off my diet so I have had crappy energy so I have been sleeping all day and getting zero done :\ I think it because of all these dang carbs I am in taking. Tuesday I felt awful with pains and a massive head ache! But I got out of bed at 5!!!!! PM and met Curtis for dinner, we went to Outback. Which I had a glass of cold sweet tea.. Which I think my last glass was back in the 1st of April. I gotta get back on track. I am going insane and I think I have gain some weight back :( Which makes me upset! If we are going to go to FL in July I gotta get back on this diet.
I feel better when I limit my Carb intake. I just got to get back in the groove of things.
Well tomorrow we are hoping of picking up my new camera which happens to be a DSLR. yes, my VERY own!! No more borrowing.. Anywho I am going to, I just feel awful and I think i am going to try and get some rest.

I hope not all of my followers have forgotten about me!!

A Southern Summer is here!

Hello! Down here in South Carolina Summer is officially started! It was 99 degrees ----> very hot when you add the humidity to it! Today Is June 1st about to be June 2nd and I wanted to do a little post of the things I want to do this summer and such here in the month of June. As you can see I have my little list on the right side of this little blog. But these few things are simple and small. (nothing too crazy) :P 

  • Create a Summer CD/Playlist for little road trips Curtis and I may take this summer (: What is ya'lls favorite summer music? 
  • Paint my kitchen! It has been white for way too long! Our cabinets are white with gray/blue counter tops.  We are wanting to paint the walls an Olive Green color. And add touches of blues, blue/green.
  • Read a good summer/love story. I love the Notebook, Dear John, anything that is based here in the carolinas. Do ya'll have any good reads? 
  •  Go to the Beach, I want to go somewhere this summer. We haven't been to the coast in a year. We went to Charleston SC which I loved! But only spent one day at the beach. Since Charleston on a harbor the beach is about 45 mins away. I am wanting to go some where in FL or if we go with our friends it would be in here in SC. 
  • Go to the Smokeout Which this is a Motorcycle Rally. We Might go we might not. Too many of our friends that were going to go are not now. We really want to though. 
  • Do more Photography work. 
  • Get more Fit. 
  • Go on a trip with my best friend kayla! 
There are I am sure many other things I want to do this summer and have done within this month. But Theses are the main ones (:
