Hope you enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend! It has been a busy three-day weekend for me, full of fun stuff and great food. I got to spend a lot of time with my family and friends.

On Saturday, I dressed up like a real person and went out for lunch at a Taiwanese restaurant. This is actually a big deal because I usually live in yoga pants, running clothes, or PJs.

Sorry, I was too busy eating to take pictures of the actual food. For dessert, I got shaved ice. This stuff is the ultimate, refreshing dessert on a hot summer day. 

Although I had shaved ice for my lunch dessert, I got froyo for my after-dinner dessert. I can never have too much froyo, and after this purchase, I got a $5 reward on my card (spoiler alert: I already spent it).

On Sunday, my friend and I cycled to Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard for a wine tasting. Emphasis on tasting because cycling while buzzed just doesn't sound very fun. Or maybe it is if I didn't have to climb so many damn hills on the way home.

After a long day of riding, I needed to chill out so I watched Star Trek (2013) on Netflix with a box of chocolates. And no, this box was not full before I started the movie, and it is not empty after finishing the movie. There's still like... half of them left. I swear.

My cycling trip to taste wine at a local vineyard was such a success that I wanted to go again. I decided to pack a picnic and take my family to the vineyard on Memorial Day. They also had a sign that said Fresh Sangria so I had to go back to try it. It was delicious and the perfect refreshing drink for a picnic. Seriously, this stuff goes down as easily as juice.

For the picnic, I brought some goat cheese, a baguette, crackers...

Sandwiches, potato salad, lemonade, and watermelon.

I came back because I wanted to get a few bottles of wine, as well. Mission accomplished.

And of course I had to take a wine bottle selfie :P

After picnicking and hiking up a mountain, we went to get froyo for the second time this weekend. At least I got to use my rewards card.

And finally, I got pho for dinner.

What was the best thing you ate this weekend? Did you do anything special for Memorial Day?
