weekend shenanigans

We were FINALLY able to get outside a little bit in the last couple of days and enjoy the fall like weather…minus the rain and humidity…THANK GOONESS!!!

Anyone else super sick of the 100%--frizz my hair-- make me sweat even standing still—humidity!?!?! I mean I can take the heat (sort of) but I despise humidity…with a heavy passion.  Maybe I need to move…somewhere there is no humidity…and I currently cannot seem to think of where that place would be…but I’m gonna be looking into that!!!

At any rate…back to being outside and enjoying the summer…

We decided it would be fun to take a family walk at Blackhand Gorge.  I remember going there a ton when I was younger, and even going on field trips there with my class.  The hubs had never been and we are always looking for new places to explore with the baby and dog, so off we went.

It ended up being perfect. We let Ellie walk the first part of the trail and again at the end of the trail and she had a BLAST!  She wanted to run and then stop suddenly when she saw a leaf or a “BUUUUU” (bug).  For the most part she was really really good and stayed only on the path which surprised the heck out of me!

Her little chubby legs in those pants are just the cutest thing ever!!!!

We ended up walking (and husband running) a little over 4 miles, which seems to be Ellie’s limit. Around that time she wants out of her stroller and is done with the walk totally.  It really is such a pretty trail, if you haven’t ever been or forgot it existed check it out, it’s worth it for sure.

After we got home and put the little monkey to bed, Joe and I enjoyed our Florida room…we love that room so much, especially when the weather is a little cool like it was over the weekend.  When we bought the house there was a super cool retro light fixture in that room, so we just kept it and are really glad we did because it just adds to the awesomeness that is that room!

Also, I am in love with the table…it was a hand me down of sorts that Joe didn’t really see the vision and didn’t want to keep.  I  took one look and knew it would be the most perfect game table…now in this new room it fits perfect and Joe is so glad we kept it, even the super trendy black faux leather chairs!

Overall the weekend was pretty great…I am not happy about all of the lovely rain that decided to come back again today, but we are getting some projects finished in the house so I guess that is a positive.

Hope you have a happy week!
