When the going gets tough...

The tough pick strawberries!

Sometimes life hands you lemons. Maybe your roof keeps leaking, or your roommate thinks you are her taxi. Perhaps you don't like storms or some evil bastard broke your heart. No matter what crappy hand life deals you, you can always pick stawberries and mix them with the lemons for a treat. And heck, if like has been particulary bad, add some vodka!

This fun filled weekend started off by Ali taking me on my very first strawberry picking excursion. We made it back just in time to hear the storm sirens. Since our original plans for watching an outdoor movie were stormed out, our friend Sara came down for a makeshift girls night of pizza, wine, and trivial pursuit. It finally stopped raining Saturday afternoon, so Ali and I ventured downtown to our favorite annual festival, The Vintage Indiana Wine festival. Our goal was to sample wine from every winery there (19) and we did! Although it was very hot and humid, it was fun as always and being the responsible drinkers we are, we asked Scott to come pick us up. What a good guy! Sunday, Scott and I tried a new (to us) breakfast place, a little down home cooking hole-in-the-wall place called Keystone Deli. The home fries were delish! To top it off with a lazy afternoon, Ali and I spent the day at the pool! When I got home, I cooled off with this slushy drink...
