Sunday Funday

8 September

Sunday funday has a completely different meaning to me than it did when I first moved to San Francisco (let me tell ya) many years ago. Cue the flashbacks of bottomless mimosas and major Monday morning blues…(oy). No looking back here, but there are a few things from those days I can still stand behind. I don’t let Sunday scaries hit me and I still celebrate as if it were Saturday. Sure, a run to the farmers’ market and a few errands to feel productive and prepare for the week ahead, but topping off the weekend right is something I look forward to every Sunday. And sometimes on great days…we pop open a bottle and indulge.

Brunch on Chestnut | Sparkling Rose-18

Much like clichés are often clichés because they’re annoyingly true, anything that’s been anointed as ‘basic’ is deemed so because, well, everyone likes it—and everyone likes it with good reason. Case in point: decking my coffee table with alllllll of the candles, fresh flowers, and (my new obsession) Michelle Sparkling rosé. You guys, this stuff is so delicious. The bottle did not last long upon opening.

I clinked glasses last weekend to celebrate Scout’s homecoming (the Sunday night before we picked him up) with few girlfriends and quickly hopped on the Michelle wine train (and may need to open another to celebrate making it one week with the little muffin handful!). It’s the best sparkling rosé I’ve tried, absolutely recommend it. They also have a fantastic sparkling brut champagne as well. A new always-on-hand bottle to have stocked in our fridge for impromptu celebrations. In fact, I might pour myself a glass now, I mean it’s almost Friday, why not? 🙂

Oh, and I can’t forget to mention the cheese! Always cheese.

OOoooh must try this!!

It’s so good! Light and crisp!

Love the red sweater! Where’s it from?

Thank you! It’s from Gap last year! I am sure they will do something similar again this fall!

Love a good sparkling (or still!) Rose! Will have to try 🙂

Unrelated- the dress you wore in your dress from your IG with the ruffle… Where from?? ?

Ah, it’s my new favorite!! I saw someone wearing it in an elevator in LA and asked and immediately ordered it!

Def try the rosé! So good!

I love everything about this, Sunday’s are for celebrating ; )

Aw, thank you! The tray is getting a lot of love. 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend, Nikki!

I haven’t found a Rose I really love, so appreciate your recommendation and will give this one a try!

I LOVE this one!

Ah, yes definitely try it. Especially if you like bubbles, this will be a good transition into a love for rosé 🙂

Oh i will have to try this! I love Mulderbosch as well, and it’s really affordable (like $10-$12!). My friend and I took a rose class and that was our fave!! Also look at you embracing wearing red 🙂

Ow, thanks for the tip! I will keep an eye out for that one. 🙂

And yes, the red phase is going strong over here! haha – have a great week, friend! xx

Where is the tray from? thanks!
