Summer Reads, Wine Bar and North Carolina


I love to read but I especially love to read when I am laying out at the pool or on the beach. I am currently finishing up the 4th book in Nora Roberts Bridal Quartet series. I have loved all 4 of these books so much. They are easy to read and make my wedding obsessed heart smile. =)

Here is what is next on my reading list-

My Nook is going to have a busy Summer!

Next...I am SO excited beacuse a new wine bar opened close to us and Chris and I went last night and absolutely LOVED it! Well, I guess it is not so new to us...there is one in The Woodlands and we actually went to that one on our first date almost 4 years ago. But, one finally opened in Houston and we went yesterday after work. It is called CRU. It has a great wine selection, yummy brick oven pizzas, tasty calamari and chocolate fondue dessert that is amazing and so much more. I had 2 Riesling flights ( that would be 6 mini glasses of wine ) and Chris had a Pinot Noir flight. The music was trendy and fun but not too loud...our server was fast and wasn't too crowded at 5:30 but by 7 is was packed...the crowd is a mix of young professionals, groups of girls and a lot of blonde, skinny River Oaks women ( seriously...there had to be 20 of them ). Our quick happy hour turned into being a 3 hour, expensive happy hour. This is definitely a place we will be coming to a lot in the future!

Tomorrow we are off to spend a few days on the beach in North Carolina with family! I can not wait to spend 4 days in the water, laying out, with family, eating lots of yummy food and working on this reading list. Here is where you can find me:

More Honeymoon posts next week! Hope you all have a great weekend!
