I LOVE the weekend recap

This past weekend was fun & relaxing. It was filled with friends and new adventures.

Tucker got a bath and a teeth cleaning:

On Saturday, Michael and I went to the Irvin House Vineyard & Firefly Distillery. When you come to Charleston it is well worth the 30 minute trip to Wadmalaw Island to visit the Irvin House Vineyard & Firefly Distillery. They are located on the same property so you are able to do both tastings in one trip. The vineyard also has corn hole boards, a tire swing, and lots of animals. On Saturday's, there is live music and food trucks. The owners recommend packing a picnic and spending the entire afternoon there. It is quaint and beautiful!

Saturday night, I fell in LOVE with the TV show Mobbed. Has anyone heard of this show before? I haven't but wish I knew about it when it came on for the first time in March 2011. Below is what the website says about the show.

Host Howie Mandel puts a hidden-camera spin on the "flash mob" concept. Mandel and hundreds of strangers will help special guests plan extraordinary surprises for friends, family members, loved ones or co-workers. These unknowing participants will be shocked and stunned by surprise performances that lead up to fantastic reveals that include a husband learning that his wife is pregnant, an applicant finding out that she got the job and a marriage proposal, among others.
 "It's so exciting to be a part of this huge musical spectacle never before attempted on this scale," said Mandel.
 Throughout the hour, the guests will be shown prepping for the event - rehearsing their routines and refining their speeches - all while receiving guidance from host Mandel. Then, on the day of the big event - with the hidden cameras rolling - the detailed plan comes to fruition and suddenly explodes into a song-and-dance spectacle they are sure never to forget. What begins as a few dancers evolves into a grand-scale performance that wraps up with a life-changing announcement for the participants like nothing ever seen on TV.
 MOBBED is produced by Alevy Productions and Angel City Factory. Howie Mandel, Chris Cowan, Jean-Michel Michenaud, Mike Marks, Darryl Trell, Howard Kitrosser, Kevin Healey and Michael Rotenberg serve as executive producers. It is based on a format created by Mandel, Trell and Kitrosser.
This is part of the episode we watched on Saturday:

so fun, right?! I can't wait to watch more.

The weekend was completed by watching the closing ceremony of the Olympics & the beginning of Shark Week. One Direction and the Spice Girls stole the show, for sure!

Hope your week is off to a great start!
LOVE, sje
