Rose Love // Wine Wednesday

Hi friends I'm linking up with Kids and Cabernet today for Wino Wednesday!

I just completed my third infusion treatment and they didn't make me stay for the 3 hour observation period afterwards.  It was like Christmas in June!

I promised Amanda that I would recommend some good, lighter summertime wines since she's more of a red loving lady.  

What a perfect time to give my favorite, old-faithful, best wine in the entire world some additional blog props!

...Whispering Angel, of course...

It's the most beautiful, dry, smooth, refreshing French rose.  We discovered it while in Paris a few years ago and I can't live without it.  

It goes with every dish and is completely acceptable to drink year round.  I just don't understand why people only think of rose as a summertime wine.

When purchasing a rose, I look for a very light peach color, and I try to stick with Provence region.

I love rose so much that I'm spreading the word everywhere I go with my new iPhone cover.  

I couldn't love it any more if I tried.

I  also like to match my outfits with my favorite drink.  

Have you heard of Piko tops?  They're so soft and flawy and I found out that they come in this lovely rose color.  I'll take one in rose, black, and white please!

These dresses are so affordable and easy to wear.

Who doesn't love a glossy rose colored lip?  It looks fab on your rose filled wine glass!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Believe it or not, I'm old enough to be attending my 20 year High School Reunion this September.  That's 3 months away!!!  I'm excited and nervous and need to lose 4 more pounds while seriously toning my muscles.  This is what I'm planning on wearing (it's about 3 inches longer on me than it is on her).  Yay or nay?
