Poof! There goes a week since my last post. Crazy how that happens. I'll blame it on Pinterest. Seriously, it is so incredibly addicting. I still have lots of decorating to do in the house and many things to cross off my 30 in the year of 30 list so the blog will definitely pick up again. I didn't buy any wine this week (I guess hell must have frozen over), but we did take a bottle to a friend's house last weekend that was one I will put on my "to buy again" list. Clay and I have always been a fan of Becker Vineyards. It is a Texas winery not too far from Austin. In fact, once it cools down a bit, I'm going to see if I can talk him into a little day trip to check it out. While perusing the wine aisle, I noticed that they had a Merlot Reserve 2008 that I have yet to try. It was delish and a great buy for about $13/bottle. It went perfectly with our steak and not too heavy or woody. I didn't take a picture of the bottle before we left and all I could find on their site was this tiny picture:
Also new on the Ellis front, I joined Weight Watchers online this week. I was killing myself with workouts and not seeing anything budge. I knew my portions were out of whack and just needed a way of tracking that is easy to stick to. Since I started it after I had done the weekly grocery shopping, I've had lots of meat and salad this week until I can sit down and plan it out. What I like about it is that it tracks your points daily as well as weekly. Basically, you can save your points for when you eat out and know you'll have more than a little 4oz shot of wine. It also gives you extra points for your activity. I'm a little skeptical since supposedly you can eat as many fruits and vegetables as you want. Fruit has a ton of carbs so we shall see. It is worth a shot and makes me more aware of how much I am eating. I'll keep you posted.
