It begins! Live blogging begins! It is our one year anniversary and we are celebrating with Shepherds Ridge Pinot Noir.
Mudpie just reminded us that this is the last Shepherds Ridge ever as the winery has closed. Sad day!
Taking a break from wine to help Mudslinger make her valentines for kindergarten. Homework!
7:30-kids are in bath… The Shepherds Ridge is at Drunk Mama’s house along with our Thai dinners. Need to get the kids in bed. Cellar Mouse had to break into the Cardinal Zin Zinfandel to celebrate the completion of the Valentines. It was quite the process!
Can’t wait for adult time. Looks like the Steelers are down, oh no! Mudhoney is the Steelers #1 fan. In the Mudpie house the Steelers must win!
8:10-okay so Steelers are fighting back. I (Cellar Mouse) am back at Drunk Mama’s and ready to do this wine thing. Drunk mama is savoring our very last moment with Shepherds Ridge.
Drunk Mama is sharing her engagement story and the ring. So beautiful! And Sober Dad’s note saying “yes” and his Grandmother’s pearl ring. Nice.
8:45 Halftime Show – We’re assuming its halftime, we don’t really know since we are not watching the game. Kids are asleep and we’re FINALLY getting to our Thai takeout and Emeri Sparkling Shiraz. I (Mudpie) love spicy food and have been looking for a good wine pairing for some time. Riesling is often the suggested pairing, most often I find it way too sweet for my taste. I highly recommend the Emeri if you like spicy food, you won’t be disappointed.
9:25 PM: Drunk Mama here. I’ve just been instructed to “butch up” the proceedings. Like, we’re being such girls here, talking engagements and kids and such. So, let’s talk about beer, babes and monster trucks. Yeah! Nothing more butch than monster trucks! Here’s what Sober Dad’s new ride is going to look like, when I get my way:
10:53 pm – OK, that’s it folks. The Wine Bowl has come to an end. Thanks for joining us on our first anniversary. As our evening comes to an end, we are consoling Mudhoney and trying to convince him that continuing to grow his beard until the Steelers win the Super Bowl may be detrimental to his professional future.
