9. Riesling actually doesn’t suck! I guess when you’re thirty and not drinking the cheapest bottle possible, it makes a difference. Trina, take note.

10. Tim will always, ALWAYS find a way to Timstigate befriend the rowdiest group of people within a five mile radius.

Readers, let’s chat! Comment on one of the ten things. 

Off to work and then NBGNO tonight! Hope to see some familiar faces there.

  1. fun post! Looks like a great vacation- here are my comments:
    -Love the idea of apps 3 ways!
    -Hanger meltdowns are NEVER fun, but it’s funny to laugh back at yourself after you’ve been fed 🙂
    -I agree with your Riesling comment!! That and Pinot Grigio- never drank them before but enjoy good ones now.

    • Me too! Aruba had them with everything, and in many forms. I don’t even have a favorite way that plantains can be prepared because they were all amazing!

  2. So so so funny!
    1. Hanger is real thing and you know you’re with a real man when he understands.
    2. I lost my boyfriend day 1 in St. Thomas to the rowdiest group of boys at the bar.
    3. Think they’ll have Resiling at NBGNO tonight?!?!???
    See you soon!

    • haha! Tim and I had to have a talk one time because of how many weddings we went to that I lost him at because of all the new friends he was making. We’re talking about disappearing for an hour plus here for cigars with in laws!

      Great to see you last night!
