Sarah’s Vineyard Date Night

Sarah’s Vineyard Date Night

Hello!! The fall is when Johnny and I thrive and we have been making the most out of the lovely weather through weekend date days. This typically involves taking OOTD pictures, running an errand or two, and then going out for a late lunch or dinner. It is the best! This weekend, we decided to go to Sarah’s Vineyard for dinner and it was delightful and delicious! Check it out:


There is nothing like some quality time with my main squeeze to lift my spirits and we had a blast at Sarah’s Vineyard. It is a beautiful property and we both haven’t been in years. Also, whenever I have gone with my friends, it’s strictly for the wine and not the food lol! I was so excited because everyone in my neck of the woods raves about the vineyard’s wood fire pizzas and I couldn’t wait to have a slice or ten. πŸ˜€

I don’t know about you guys but whenever Johnny and I go out to eat, I look at the menu hours in advance. This gives me ample time to decide what I want because it can be overwhelming to choose from a menu I haven’t experienced yet. It didn’t take me long to know what I wanted from my pre-screening and everything was just as good as I imagined it to be.

For wine, Johnny went with the not too sweet Sweet Elisa, which kind of tasted like church wine but was still pretty tasty. We also got to make use of the vineyard’s bottling service since Johnny haphazardly ordered a full carafe SMH! I was disappointed that my favorite, their white sangria, wasn’t available so I chose the sweetest option, Golden Solstice. It was light, refreshing and much better than my usual Barefoot!

Normally when we go out to a restaurant, we never order appetizers. However, I just couldn’t say no to the Artichoke & Asiago dip. Sign me up for anything that involves artichoke and cheese because I love it oh so much. I’m glad I tried it out and it was SO yummy but I wouldn’t order it again next time. I hate to be the one to complain about prices but I thought ten dollars was steep for the tiniest bowl ever of the dip. Hey, sometimes you just have to live a little. πŸ˜€

As our main dish, I got the Margherita pizza and Johnny got the Pepperoni & Banana Pepper. In fact, he’s currently eating his leftovers for breakfast as I write this! Johnny really liked his pizza and I was happy overall with mine. It actually tasted much better the next day. The garlic oil sauce and toppings on mine were so light that my pizza just tasted kind of doughy. Next time we go, I plan on just doing a cheese pizza with a couple of veggies on top and I think that I’ll like that much better.

Johnny and I had such a great time at Sarah’s Vineyard and we are eager to go back – especially since it’s close to our apartment. The vineyard has such a charming, cozy atmosphere and it really is the perfect date night setting!

Where was the last place you went on a date? What is your favorite restaurant? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah


I Have Returned!!

I Have Returned!!

Hellooooo everyone and happy Friday! After a two day MIA hiatus, I have returned to deliver the latest and greatest! Honestly nothing too exciting has happened, I’ve just been busy with school and being a bad ass…the usual. πŸ˜‰ I had a beautiful wasteypants night yesterday with my sister and a lovely group of friends. It was wine night at a nearby restaurant so we all indulged, and I threw back a bottle of white wine to get white girl wasted like NOBODY’S BUSINESS! It’s a very exciting thing to not get carded while ordering booze, let me tell you! Here’s a few pics of the festivities:


^^^ Bar lighting sucks! My bedroom lighting is better though! (Obviously, because I look pale and flaming red, not grainy and beige!)

I’m shockingly not hungover, I’m just really tired. After the wine night outing, I had the pleasure of reuniting with someone very dear to me before he moves forever away to Florida, so it was an all around fantastic night. It’s a bummer how much I’m going to miss him but maybe our paths will cross again eventually. Fingers fucking crossed. I also have a case of the sleepies because we have some renovations going on at casa de la Lil Red. We’re getting our entrance way and hallway painted, and unfortunately the repairman has been coming in bright and early these past few days which means no sleeping in for me. I would be furious if it wasn’t looking so fabulous, so prepare for some before and after pics soon! Ya know, yesterday was great in general actually. School in the morning was stupid, but after that I got to spend the afternoon having girl time with my sissy. I met her up at the nail salon after class while she got a pedicure, and I got to soak my feet and enjoy the massage chair while Kristen got pampered. The massage chair had a “Buttock” setting on it, so it was definitely a treat getting a butt massage! My beloved nail tech Vinny also gave my talons a little bit of loving even though I just got them filled a week ago, so that was super sweet too. After Kristen got the princess pedicure treatment we went to Target to get some shopping done. We originally went so Kristen could find a new dresser for her room, but we ended up leaving with a shirt for her, a floor length kimono vest for me, hair dye, and mascara. The essentials. I’m pretty obsessed with my new flowing kimono vest! Kristen actually talked me into buying it, and I’m so glad she did! Here she is:


So cute! I got this little beauty for $24.99 and if you like it, it should be available in stores and online for purchase! (www.target.com) For my evening outing I threw this on over a pretty simple David Bowie crop top and black short combo to spruce things up. (Fun fact for ya: I got my D-Bo crop at a Goodwill in Cleveland over six years ago and I still love it! Such a great find!) To finish off the out and about look I put on my go to pair of black lace up Vera Wang wedges and I was off! Annnd now I must be off….to take a nap!

I hope all of you guys are having a fabulous Friday! What are you all up to this weekend? Any fun plans? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
