Weekend Snapshots!


ONE   |    Saturday morning I went on a fairly difficult hike with two other girlfriends - Faerl and Marley.  The hike was basically straight up to a signal tower and then back down, but the rocks were quite loose so we really had to pay attention to where we were stepping.  And let me tell you, it was quite the workout!

TWO   |   Scout and Marble (Faerl's doggie) joined us girls on the hike, and they were lovely companions.  They were so tired from the hike and playing together that the slept the whole car ride home (but only after Scout ate Faerl's husband's Maui Jims... Scout clearly has expensive taste).

THREE   |   While we were hiking, John and Faerl's husband, Jared, went fly fishing in Taos.  There was a new hatch that they were pretty excited about.

FOUR   |   John and Jared did not get home until late, so Faerl and I extended the evening post-hike with wine, yummy appetizers, face masks, manis and pedis.  She also introduced me to a new show on PBS called Call the Midwives.  Has anyone heard of this?!! I plan on starting the show from the beginning, but supposedly it is better than Downton Abbey (which is so my jam)!

FIVE   |  My pedi matched my Easter Sunday dress perfectly! The weather was beautiful, and I was so excited to finally rock some sandals!

SIX   |   John and I even got to church 20 minutes early... what?!  Well, actually, we were technically 20 minutes late for the earlier service, but we decided to just wait in the car and go to the later one.

SEVEN   |   John and I don't have any kiddos to make Easter baskets for, and this definitely works to little Scout's favor.  She had a lovely little Easter and enjoyed testing out her new leash from her Easter basket.

EIGHT   |   We were originally going to go on an Easter picnic, but decided against it (we were both pretty tired from Saturday).  So instead, we went to The Grove and had some delicious food.  This place is very quickly becoming my favorite restaurant.

NINE   |  We ended Easter Sunday with a trip to Lowe's to buy some wood to make a new coffee table and TV stand.  We are going to use the same basic plans as our dining room table, but obviously different dimensions.  For some reason they wouldn't cut the wood for us (lameee), so we have to take it home and cut it all ourselves.  We hope to finish them off tomorrow!

  23. What a perfectly fun weekend! I am so impressed that you guys are making a coffee table and TV stand. Please keep us posted on the process. Maybe I'll get a little inspiration to do it ourselves too. I've seen some families make some beautiful dining room tables too.

  24. Omg! We totally watch (and by we, I mean me) Call the Midwives. It's my naptime indulgence. Ha! I definitely I rely wouldn't say it is better than Downton though. I definitely enjoy it. Probably has more to do with it being a period piece and British accents. What's not to love, right? Ha! Btw-it's on netflix! -xo
