Body Back & Wine Tasting

Body Back is going really well!  Unfortunately, I had to stop attending Lisa's class (my good friend and trainer) for another one.  Lisa is still the owner of our local Body Back, but she hired another trainer to complete a course closer to my home.  It works great for me and my schedule, but I do miss all the girls I've been working out with since April.  

The class is great!  I have gained more strength, feel great and energized and I've lost four pounds!!  Skinny jeans, I will be fitting back into you by Christmas!  Yahoo! 

Anyways, Lisa recently accomplished something very big in her life.  She participated in a local charity's Dancing with the Stars competition.  She spent HOURS learning the Argentinian Tango with local dance instructors.  As part of the fundraiser, each dance competitor was to not only dance, but raise as much money as possible for the charity.  So the winner was the person with a combination of the highest dance scores and highest fundraising dollars. 

Lisa raised over $8,000 herself and over $50,000 was raised for the charity.

Well, the dance shoes have been put away and the money is going to a very good use, but Lisa, being the generous person she is, wanted to give back to all the people that supported her over the past few months.  She held a wine tasting at our local Total Wine store.  It was a lot of fun being with Lisa to celebrate her accomplishment and being with friends for a Girls Night Out (and yes, since it was a wine tasting, we only tasted  the wine.....sure, sure).
Bob took each of us on an Argentinian Tango tour of the dance floor (aka wine tasting kitchen).  I LOVE this Elizabeth McKay dress and I'm thrilled it's finally fall-ish enough to wear it!

My friends, Joanna and Sandy.

The wines were fabulous!  We tasted four whites (none were pinot, my favorite) and four reds (my favorite being the $59.99 bottle which means, that's all I'll ever taste of that one!)
I am not a wine connoisseur, but Husband and I do enjoy the occasional glass.

And,just because I know how many of my blog followers love designer hand bags (like me)....
this is just for you!  Haha!

Happy Friday Y'all!
