Filling my days with…

Posted on by .

Reading… Finished The Interestings. Overall, eh. It was well written, very character driven. I wouldn’t read it again, but I’m glad I did, and it was worth getting through it. But parts of it were a little slow, and I felt like the book just sort of ended. As if there could have been another chapter. Next up: trying to get the nerve to start this book – supposed to be a phenomenal read, but it’s a bit daunting to start this large of a non-fiction book. I’m usually a fiction only lover and needs to be relatively fast paced. But I’m going to try it because it comes so highly recommended.

Theme searching… My mom (who is one of about 2 people who read this, and hence, I should make her happy) told me she missed seeing the lemons on the top of my blog. So I decided to try to find a new theme to re-incorporate the lemons! Think I’ve found one I like. It’s insane how much free blog support there is out there. I find it really fun to change up the look and try to create a sleek aesthetic for the page. Blogging is still relatively new to me, even though my first post was (!gasp!) in December 2010!  Wow.

Zillowing… Is that a word? It should be. It’s equally addicting as it is punishing. I find a new house in our budget, add it to my favorites, and receive an email the next day that a sale is pending on it. Anyone have an affordable 3+ bed, 2+ bath house in northern Virginia or southern Maryland they want to sell us???










A long overdue wedding post.

Posted on by .

This is about 4 months overdue – but better late than never.

Wanted to share just a few photos from the beautiful and incredibly fun wedding of Theresa and Will that we attended in October of 2013. The entire event took place at the Antrim 1844 – which is a wonderful old country mansion in the hillsides of Maryland. As the wedding party, we got to stay in the main house and it was so beautiful; like being in a movie. The beds were 4 poster with thick, soft mattresses, the ceilings were over 10 feet, the walls were covered with floral wallpaper, and all of the furniture was antique. The grounds were filled with flowers, beautiful fountains, and the greenest grass I’ve ever seen! It was a wonderful wedding, so much fun, and we were so glad to be a part of it.
