Weekend Recap

Image
We had a great weekend in Sandbridge, Virginia. We got home this afternoon with two exhausted children who had the best time playing in the pool and sand with their grandparents and cousins! Highlights of the weekend included a trip to the Pungo Strawberry Festival and a boat cruise to the Baja!




We have a busy week ahead of us that involves my company picnic and a girls night so I am not doing a formal menu planner. I did run out to Trader Joe's today to get some of their dinner items. I purchased fresh (not frozen) Southwestern Stuffed Chicken Breasts that we ate for dinner tonight. They were delicious. I also purchased  fresh pesto tortellini and frozen mandarin orange chicken to be  served over rice. Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day!

A guest post from Frankie :)

Such a big weekend, I had to break up the bloggy posts into a couple different ones haha
This, however, totally deserves it's own post anyhow :) A guest post from... Frankie!

Yesterday, I woke up and wanted to go on a Field Trip...

"Mommm take me somewhere today Puhhleasee!"
So what is a good mother to do? Take her baby with her on errands of course! Love my mom!
This time instead of my usual spot in the carseat, I decided to sit in the back window like a cat hahaha??

Off to Lowes we go... I love it there, I always see someone I know!
 Plus my two fave uncles work there, lol  :)


What a good boy, right in the buggy guarding my mom's purse! :)
(Yes I say buggy, chris makes fun of me, what else is it called? a cart? doesn't sound as cute!?)

After almost 3 hours at Lowes buying goods for the flip house... I am dying of a thirst when we get back in the car, so what else is there to do besides drink my mom's ice water .. duh!!
So Spoiled!

We get back home... and I believe I g…

Engagey Party!

Image
On Friday night we had an engagement party to go to... one of my best friends, Stephanie, will wed her love this October on a cruise! Our friend Kelly's parents were gracious enough to host an engagement party for Stephanie and Levi and it was beautiful! Great food, people, location! We all had a blast!



Girlfriends since the ... 5th grade...? I believe?? Wow, I feel old kind of? Haha. <3 you ladies!
Kelly's parents have the most awesome outdoor area you have ever seen... you literally feel like you are at Drake's (non Lex friends, Drake's is our favorite fun place to eat and hang out!) Let me show you a little of what we enjoyed that evening...
 Is that the most amazing outdoor area you have ever seen? Obsessed. I would never go inside the house!

 Loved the flowers in the pool... perfect touch Sharon! :)

Ok if you like Cucumbers... and alcohol...you need to know about this! I am not a huge drinker, like maybe a beer every now and then... I am not a fan of Vodka or anyt…

It's the little things....

Last weekend, we purchased this nozzle for our hose. I LOVE it! Previously, we had one that leaked water all over the place so we really  could  only go up from there but this sprayer is the best! It has 7 patterns and  works so well. What a steal for $6.97. Click here to purchase one for yourself.

I have been doing a lot of watering. Look at our garden now! We have our first tomato!




We have been doing a ton of work in our yard and there is still so much to be done. Here is my flower garden near that patio that I re-planted this spring. Everything is growing so well this year.

Looks like I saw this feud coming haha... look what I stumbled upon at the grocery this morning....

Excuse the yuck pic, my phone camera is not the best :(
The skinny on it is pretty much what I said yesterday... Teresa let the fame of the show go to her head, when her sister-in-law, Melissa, was asked to be on the show, she got mad and jealous and didn't want the spotlight to be on anyone else but her. So it has started a fight with their family and friends. Just thought it was kind of funny ... and that for those of you who are watching the show, you might have to run out and grab you the new Life & Style issue :)

PS. For those of you who watched the Bachelor and obsessed with Miss Emily like I did, I'm not so sure what to believe on this article...? I think I am still in denial of who she really is as a person lol she has me snowed! Poor Brad! :(

Happy Thursday!

Long time no talk!

Geez I feel like it is has been FOREVER since I have paid attention to my little bloggy (reality is only 6 days but danggg feels like a lifetime!)... Work has kept me insanely busy!! (Not complaining, love that houses are selling and people are buying!)

This will be a bunch of randomness, apologizing now for it. I have so much stuff to cram in :)

First and foremost, a funny real estate story that unfortunately for me is a true one...
I was in desperate need of new summer wedges, like major! So I went to Aldo in the mall (first time I've been in there I guess I have been under a rock apparently but they have super cute wedges). I found a really cute pair... don't you agree?
I thought to myself, these are kinda tall, but I can handle them. I go meet BFF to show her and her husband houses, as soon as she gets out of the car, she judges them ha (thanks Chrissy) and I know she thinks they look like stripper shoes but I thought they looked summer'ish AND I had them on with skinny j…
