Charleston Food + Wine Festival. champagne before noon edition

~As luck would have it~
my boss needed some arm candy
for a VIP preview of the tasting tents at the 
2010 Charleston Wine + Food Festival
I promptly volunteered my little black dress
for a lovely afternoon in Marion Square

I stuck to tasting all the *bubbles* at the show
~these are the tasting glasses they passed out~
they might be embossed with the 
Piggly Wiggly 

the cooking demonstrations 
-smelled delicious-
was a blast to watch 

*Congratulations to JJ*
He won Best booth at the Festival
~thanks again for the tickets JJ!~

I didn't win a trophy 
for Champagne consumption
~I didn't win a trophy at all actually~
things just happen to get silly
when you mix a lovely afternoon in Charleston
with champagne 

(thanks for the love B)

*Can't wait till next year!*

Garden update

Growing things is addicting
we've added some veggies to our little garden

*Here's a little update*

~these are a blend of hot peppers~
I think it's fun that it will be a surprise 
*what kind of pepper they are until they fruit*

around the corner!
