WINOS Weekend 2014 | Part One

Sometime after our trip to Napa last year, we decided that we desperately needed an official girls' weekend each year...a few days filled with friends, food, laughter, and lots of wine. 

After much discussion, the WINOS (Women In Need Of Sangria) Weekend was born, and we set the date for the first one. Since I would have a teeny tiny newborn baby at the time, my friends graciously decided to hold the inaugural event in Dallas so that I could join the fun as much as possible. (However, we do plan on taking the show on the road most years.)

For those who could make it, we kicked off the weekend with mani/pedis on Friday afternoon. 

My mother-in-law graciously came up for the weekend so Josh would have some help with the kids while I was away from the house. But I felt bad leaving her alone with both babies on Friday, so Ava got to enjoy her first mani/pedi experience. 

My little girly girl loved every minute of it. 

We regrouped later that night at Jill's house for a low-key wine and cheese night. 

The sangria and was excellent. 

Did I mention we made shirts? It was clearly a necessity. 

Rylan crashed the party. He doesn't mind being surrounded by ladies :). 

Tiny crowns...because, why not?!

It was a fabulous start to the weekend!

Up next...a sangria-filled pool day and a delicious dinner on a gorgeous patio.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
