I am linking up to the Pleated Poppy, as I usually do on Wednesday’s with a few outfits that I have worn recently. I spent part of last week in my PJ’s because I was sick. But I didn’t think you would want to see that. Trust me! I finally had to make a trip to the Dr. for some antibiotics, but it was worth it because I feel so much better! Let’s get on with this and I hope you enjoy seeing a peek into what I have been wearing lately.
This outfit was inspired by this pin. In case you missed it, I showed you how I use Pinterest to inspire new outfit combinations here.

Scandal or no scandal, James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces was one of the best books I have ever read. I literally could not put it down. So when he recommends 6 books that you must read, I take note.

Let me be honest and tell you up front that I love wine! Am I an expert on wine? Probably not, but I do enjoy a nice glass of wine.
I used to work with a group of ladies who had a wine club that met once a month. Each month we would have a different theme, and everyone would bring a bottle that matched the theme for everyone to taste. It was such fun!
My husband and I enjoy going to wine tasting events and learning about and tasting different types of wines. There was a great wine store just down a couple of blocks from us that had a great wine tasting event every Friday night. We really enjoyed going when we could. Unfortunately it burned down in the spring, but we are hoping they will be able to rebuild some time soon. The store was a big hit in the area!
My favorites are usually red wines that are on the sweet side - like Chiraz, but I also enjoy a glass of white wine from time to time. My white wines of choice would be Moscato or Pinot Grigio. My husband does not love the sweet wines as much as I do, but we can usually find something that we both like. He usually goes for something red that is not near as sweet- like merlot. He enjoys Pinot Grigio with me from time to time as well.
I was offered the opportunity to tell you more about a product called VinoVinti, and I jumped at the chance because we enjoy wine so much and I thought this product looked very interesting. As a matter of fact, we have a couple of friends who are much more connoisseur's of good wine, and this is something that I think they would love. We usually exchange gifts with them each year, so this is the perfect gift for them! I am so glad I found it because I always have a hard time thinking of a creative gift for them, and this year I will be giving them something I know they will love!
VinoVinti is a carbonic acid extractor. What does it do, you ask? It removes excess carbon dioxide from wine, improving the flavor and adding years of smoothness in seconds. It is a patented technology and uses a ceramic rod and vacuum pump to create nucleation - a process that allows CO2 molecules to come together, form a bubble, and escape the wine - enhancing the flavor, feel and finish of the wine at once.
If you have a wine lover on your Holiday list this year, you simply must go to the VinoVinti store and purchase one. If you would like to learn more about this amazing product, please take 43 seconds to watch this video showing the VinoVinti in action:
VinoVinti also has a Facebook page where you can read more about it. You should head over to it and give them a like! VinoVinti on Facebook
**Please drink responsibly, and as always, only drink if you are at least 21 years old or older**
I have a special What I Wore Wednesday post for you today. It is a mixture of some of the outfits I have worn, and a trip to the Mt. Zion Christmas Tree Farm, where we took pictures for our annual Christmas card. This is a shot of the whole family in front of the tree we brought home with us.

Have you started you Christmas shopping yet? I have barely gotten started. I usually have everyone make a wish list, and then I have ideas for what to buy them each year. I try to get the most important things on their lists. I also fill a stocking for every family member. Usually the stocking consists of practical things that they need and can use. Things like socks, underwear, candy, and gum.
Underwear is always one of the things I buy for my men every year for Christmas. But this year they aren't going to be getting just any underwear. They will be getting Frigo RevolutionWear. Have you seen these yet? Both of the men in my life are athletes. They participate in cross country, track, and 5 and 10 K events. So they want underwear that has extra support.
Frigo has an innovative new line of men's underwear that is perfect for the men in your life! They feature something called the Frigo Zone, which is an adjustable mesh pouch that provides ultimate support coupled with a soft lock adjustment system for custom fit. This is a patented system, so you aren't going to find it anywhere else.
Now, I am not a man, but I do know what my men like when it comes to underwear, and they are going to love these Frigo underwear! I have a feeling they are going to be requesting enough pairs for every day. I think they are going to stop wearing underwear and start wearing revolution wear! Frigo- check it out!

I am so sad that Thanksgiving Break is over. But I am so happy that I can say that my Thanksgiving Break project was a big success! It was my goal to get the stairwell painted, and I wasn’t sure if I could actually finish it, but I did!
