The weather was absolutely perfect and all of Michelle's friends who I had never met were all very nice and quite amusing. I'll tell ya those 40-somethings sure know how to drink. We loaded up the limo with beer and wine to get us warmed up on the way to the wineries.
It's like Prom!
Traveling in style
The first stop was at Notaviva Vineyard which is a cute little winery. The owners live in the main house where the tastings take place. Apparently they filmed their house/tasting room being built for the DIY network and HGTV. The owner did the tasting for us and it was great. I bought one of the bottles of white which ended up getting drank in the limo before the end of the day.

After we left Notaviva we hopped back in the limo and drove for 15 minutes to our next stop which was Doukenie Winery . We were able to do our tasting out back on the covered deck. By this point we were a bit more rowdy and loud so I think the lady giving us the tasting was a tad annoyed. Oh well. After the tasting we hung out on the side deck and had some more wine and cheese. Michelle's boyfriend was sweet enough to buy Kristian and I another bottle of white at this spot. Though I don't think we'll be drinking it anytime soon. The thought of wine right now makes me nauseous.

We discovered that Kristian and his sister have identical fingers. Michelle was upset saying that she has "man-hands"
After we left Doukenie we got back in the limo, turned on the lights, put on some jams and partied all the way back to Michelle's house. She kept sticking her head out the sunroof and waving to passersby. Good to know you never get too old to find that amusing.
The night was even more fun when on the way back home Kristian puked in my car. Yep he puked IN. MY. CAR. Fortunately we had an empty plastic bag for him to use though we discovered when we arrived home he didn't quite make it all in the bag. Gross. I made him clean it up. The best part was when he peed in the parking lot for all the neighbors to see (fortunately it was dark out by this point but I think the ladies next door still got a nice show). He then went inside and proceeded to pass the eff out. It was 8pm. Good times. He doesn't remember the puking or the peeing. I remember though since my car still stinks. *sigh*
Needless to say we had a great time and I highly recommend both of the wineries if you are in the VA area.
