Yay For Friday

Happy Friday!  I hope you had a great week!  Today I am going to do a currently post :)  There is a lot going on here in Texas and I hope I am able to do everything I need to :)

Blue Bonnetts

Currently Loving: The Blue Bonnets.  They are the state flower of Texas and if you visit in the spring you will see this wildflower filling fields and everywhere.  They only last a short time but are beautiful!

baby cow

And the baby cows of course.  If only they would let me get closer to them!

Currently Reading: I have not gotten very far in it (and by that I mean, like two pages) but Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin.  I have really enjoyed her other books and when I saw this one was being released I had to get it.  She writes in a very conversational manner.

Currently Thinking: I hope people get their RSVP’s in so I can figure out how many tables I need :) I know this is an age old problem, but then I can plan better :)  I am not doing a seating chart but I want to make sure I have enough seats for everyone :)

Currently Watching: Not right now as I write this post but I love watching Kelly & Michael.  Anyone else?  I think their banter and their show is just awesome!

Currently Making: Wedding crafts!  I feel like I have a lot of time (50 Days!) but then I know that is going to FLY by!  So I need to get cracking!

Weekend Recap [New Hampshire]

Last weekend Josiah & I flew to New Hampshire to visit some of my family.  It was a short trip (Friday-Sunday) and I had some worries about weather delays but we made it and had a great time!  I only wish it had been longer!  It was much colder than it is here in Texas and so I don’t know if we were prepared for that!


On Saturday we had lunch at Portsmouth Gas Light.  It was absolutely delicious!  I had chicken pot pie.  This started my weekend of lots of eating!  Wait, I lied.  I had Dunkin Donuts for breakfast!  And I may have also drank plenty of Moxie while I was there.  It has always been a drink my grandfather has drank and I just couldn’t help myself!



We then walked around downtown Portsmouth.  It is so crazy to think how old some of these buildings are when in Tennessee and Texas they are a lot newer!  Some of these ones go back to the 1600s!


We drove along the coast and even though it was absolutely freezing it was so incredibly beautiful.  And I love  the smell of the seacoast!

mimi and papa

I was so happy that we were able to spend time with family.  My grandparents are absolutely wonderful and I pray they can make it to the wedding!


 I also got to spend time with my cousins and I cannot wait to see them in a few months!  For dinner we had chicken tenders which are famous from The Backroom.  They were delicious.  I may of had another can of Moxie and we had homemade angel cake for dessert.


 On Sunday morning we had more eating at Chez Vachon.  Oh my goodness was that apple crepe absolutely amazing!  Apparently this restaurant is a big stop on presidential tours before elections and I see why!  You have to go at a certain time and we got there right in time as just a little bit after us there was a line out the door.  And with the cold, that must not have been fun!



Then we had a four hour layover in Baltimore, MD and we did something I have never done.  We left the airport and went to the Pier!  We took a taxi from the airport and on the way back we took an Uber.  Really because we have never taken an Uber and thought it would be fun.  We still made it back to the airport in plenty of time to get through security and then for our four hour flight!  ugh!

We made it back to Texas after a whirlwind weekend to 75 degrees and sunshine.  :)  Now I feel like I need to eat really well this week to make up for this weekend!
