Happy Birthday Hubby

What a weekend! I’m using this post to give a super shout-out to my husband, who turned 31 yesterday. (Happy birthday my love!) I somehow managed to convince him to spend his birthday painting our kitchen cabinets white – something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. Basically, our weekend motto has been, “no… [Read More]

Brother Adventure

Saturday I got to spend some quality time with my three brothers. With life going so fast, I thought it’d be nice for us to carve out some time for just the four of us siblings, and now I want to do it more often! Time spent with these guys is full of fun, craziness,… [Read More]

Memorial Day Weekend 2017

Memorial Day weekend was pretty low key around here. Merry came to stay with me and we had a pretty great weekend. We made lemon cupcakes, had breakfast out at Cafe Columbia, went herb shopping with my mom, attended a family BBQ at the park, spent time at the lake in Chelan, had takeout, and… [Read More]

Weekend Getaway: Orcas Island

I fell in love with the San Juan Islands last weekend. On Friday morning we loaded the car and headed to Anacortes, where we had a ferry to catch at 2. We grabbed some food, ate, and then headed out to catch some views. The ride was short, about an hour I’d say. Before I… [Read More]

Spokane Weekend

This weekend I went to visit my bestie, Merry, in Spokane – my last visit before she moves over here!!! On Friday I got off work early to conquer the drive in the daylight. We hit up the grocery store for some weekend essentials and relaxed with a movie. Saturday morning we were up early… [Read More]

3 Day Weekend Fun

I love three day weekends! We had a great few days, and I hope you did too! Friday night my bestie Merry spent the night. We made some homemade mini pizzas for dinner and had a little movie night. We watched “She’s the Man” which is just as funny as it was when I was… [Read More]

Halloweekend

Does anyone else out there think Halloween should always be on a Saturday? I had a pretty awesome Halloweekend. Friday night we carved lots of pumpkins and ate lots of pizza with friends, Saturday morning we had breakfast with one of my best friends and her husband, Saturday night we went to a Halloween party, and then… [Read More]

Shady Trees & 80 Degrees

Have you heard the phrase, “I’m all about the palm trees and 80 degrees”? Well, here in the PNW we don’t have palm trees, but we do get 80 degrees in the summertime:) Or springtime, in the case of this year. This past weekend, my family and I had a day-long picnic at the park to celebrate… [Read More]

Memorial Day Weekend

I made the mistake of blinking, and now almost all of May has gone by. Seriously, people! Where has this month gone? I’ve been crazy busy, and my lack of posts on here shows for it. Boo. On the bright side, I will still be doing my monthly recap at the end of May, so… [Read More]

Weekend Snapshots

Anyone else missing the weekend already? Okay, phew, glad it’s not just me:) We had highs in the 70s this weekend, which makes me think that we might get summer sooner rather than later ’round these parts. If that’s the case- this girl needs to go shopping! As much as I prefer warm weather to… [Read More]
