These are my girlfriends from high school. We got together this past weekend after we found out we all still lived relatively close to each other. We met at Summerset Winery in Indianola for a great afternoon of conversation and catching up. Since there was a chance of rain, the band played inside, but it was too loud and we moved outside (where it wasn't raining).
We each brought a little something to share. I brought a chinese chicken salad, Allyson brought fruit, Nicky had cheese and crackers and Sarah brought shrimp cocktail. Oh, and TWIZZLERS!! Twizzlers became our mainstay food whenever we got together. As a matter of fact, a few years ago, after our class reunion, we all had an impromptu birthday party for one of Sarah's daughters and Nicky and I both gave Twizzlers! Back to the winery, we tried two wines: Kiss Me (a semi-sweet white) and Vino Rosso (a semi-sweet rose), both of which we liked.
What are the girlfriends up to? Well, Sarah is married to a doctor and they have 4 kids. Nicky works in Cedar Rapids for the fire department and rides her bike all summer long. This year is at least her 3rd RAGBRAII and she has also done 100 mile day ride. Allyson is West Des Moines with her husband and cute dog, named Oscar.
We had such a great time. They literally closed the place up, kicked us out and then we stood outside and kept talking for quite sometime. We decided we should definitely do it again! What do you think, girls? Wine tour of Iowa?
