Wingwoman


Happy Friday Friends!  Is it just me or does it seem like this week has been the longest week ever?  All I want to do today is stay in my jammies, snuggle on the couch with Baby Girl and Mr. BMJ and read blogs while drinking copious amounts of hot tea.  Dream on!  I have to take Baby Girl to the doctor...again, to get her ears checked.  Poor little sugar.  

Maybe the reason I want to lay like broccoli (bonus prize to anyone who can name what movie that's from) all day is because I went to the Charleston Wine + Food Festival Opening Night Party last night. 

They had so much delicious food (all served small plate style) and wine (all served wine tasting style - you just have to go to the bar more frequently ;) that I still feel like I'm going to pop this morning.  It was at the aquarium so they had divers in the tanks wearing chef hats and aprons.  There were tons of people there so I think it was a huge success for them!  
I was Brooke's wingwoman all night.  I think she needs to fire me.  She didn't have much luck in meeting Prince Charming.
My favorite food of the evening was the braised short ribs with bone marrow bread pudding.  I smelled the griddle down the hall and sprinted towards the sizzling butter.  My taste buds were in comfort food heaven!  Bravo Ross with Oak Steakhouse!
We saw many interesting characters there.  You know who you are! (Woman who desperately needed spanx with her too tight purple dress and neon stripper shoes.) This guy won the most unhappy award.  Bless it.  No food, no wine, no special wine glass party favor.  Pitiful.
p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because I have to fit in a formal dress tomorrow night.  I haven't tried it on in a year and I have end-stage bloat going on.  Wish me luck!  Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. So jealous of your adventure last eve. Looks awesome. You will be stunning tomorrow night! Drink warm water with lemon in the morning. Apparently that is supposed to help with feeling bloated.
