Happy Weekend: Peter Cottontail + Easter Eggs

I love this time of year because it’s not too hot or cold outside (perfect for grilling) and all of these bright and fun colors pop up in pretty much every store you go into. Since we’ve had so much snow this year and it’s actually started to warm up a bit, I feel like this Easter weekend is actually the “real” beginning of Spring. So, I’m welcoming Peter, Peter Cottontail that is, with open arms. While I so wish we were spending our…

HAPPY WEEKEND: PAIN MEDICINE, BROTHER-BONDING TIME + A GIVEAWAY

So, yesterday. It finally happened. I had all four wisdom teeth pulled. I mentioned in this post that this was going down the week before Thanksgiving, but because we had to go out of town at the last minute, we had to postpone it to yesterday. It wasn’t that bad.

It seems like just a few weeks ago, we were outside bearing the sweltering Virginia heat while working on our little landscaping project. Now… we’re bringing plants inside to protect them from the 29° nights. This weekend, we have a conglomeration of things going on including celebrating my grandpa’s 80th birthday, working on a small update in the guest room and…

HAPPY WEEKEND: A LAST-MINUTE FREE WEEKEND

I love Fall weekends in Virginia. There are so many fun things to do like visit the apple orchards, drive up to Monticello, go to the corn maze or just drive around and look at the pretty changing leaves. Reason #1,563 I love Virginia. Our original plans for this weekend fell through and were rescheduled for a few weeks from now. I was really bummed at first, but it may turn out to be a blessing in disguise because that…
