Replaying Life's Momentary Pleasures

Okay, I'm READY for another week of the kiddos.

If I type it, will that make it true?

In my total procrastination that was today, I took a quiz on "Self" about what makes me happy...

Your results indicate that you are more likely to succeed in becoming happier if you practiced:

Savoring life's joys. Paying close attention, taking delight, and replaying life's momentary pleasures and wonders, through thinking, writing, drawing, or sharing with one another.

At first read I was like "paying close attention", "drawing"?! This is clearly not me. But then, I read it again and I realized, "replaying life's momentary pleasures and wonders through WRITING" = blogging :) Yea! I'm so glad this quiz was able to quickly discover exactly what is my true happiness in life.

Life's pleasures from yesterday include...

  • Wine tasting at Nashoba Valley Winery :) Eric and I try to make at least one visit to this place a year. I might have to go twice this year though because they only have the Spiced Cranberry Apple wine I like around the holidays :)

  • After wine tasting, tailgating a winery... and yes, we did invent this (in case you were wondering)

  • Taking terrible pictures of tailgating the winery, I have no idea why Eric looks so angry with me. I do not recall him having any problem with me taking the picture!


Really I do not know what was up with our picture taking...


Obviously we were having too much fun for pictures. With this spread, how could we not?


Yes I realize that is a lot of beer for a winery, but Nashoba is cool because they sell wine, beer and whiskey :)

Ah, if only life momentary pleasures lasted into Monday...

What was the best thing you did this weekend?


  1. yay winery! especially one that sells whiskey ;) i went to a brewery which was way fun too!

  2. Looks like a great weekend! So nice to relax and have fun before heading back to work...

  3. looks like fun Kel. I've always wanted to visit Nashoba Valley Winery!

  4. Tailgating at a winery... now THIS is a great idea!

    Good luck with your week!

  5. The winery sounds fun! The most exciting thing I did this weekend was run on both days. :-)

  6. Hahaha that picture of Eric is hilarious! Looks like a fun weekend - bring on the work week!!!

  7. That is awesome that you tailgate at a winery! Too funny. I love the look on Eric's face in that one photo, though!

    The highlight of my weekend was having dinner at a French restaurant where the food was ah-mazing and then going to an orchestra concert. It was a perfect date!

  8. ha wait you tailgated at the winery? i need to become a hiltz
    oh wait im not drinking anymore jk

  9. haha tailgaiting at the winery! i love that!!! i have never been to Nashoba for the wine tasting and vinyards there but I hear its awesome!! i loved going where I went to college in upstate NY, the wines were so sweet, they tasted like juice!

  10. Fun!! I love wine tasting. And, I love that picture of Eric. I don't think he's mad, I think he's just being funny, and that's QUITE a face!! (I'm acting like I know him better than you, but that's just my guess!).

    My weekend involved a bit of wine, but mostly work because it was the first weekend the store was open, so we all worked extra. I'm pooped!

  11. Hahaha...I LOVE that you tailgated at a winery. That's fabulous. Tehehe. :)
