On My Mind…Lately

Happy Friday y’all!  I haven’t done a Friday post in FOREVER because I can’t seem to get my act together, but I’m back!  At least for this Friday anyway 🙂

My desk area…with a beautiful view of a massive construction zone.  I sure won’t miss this when we move!

Lots of moving pieces going on in my life right now…we are getting packed up to move next week and even though I’ve moved about a dozen times in the past 7 years I’m still a bit anxious, especially because we have a baby now which I know will make things more difficult.  Even though I’m a little stressed we have some fun plans this weekend!  If you’re in the DMV area I have 2 really fun recommendations for you:

Luckett’s Spring Market.  I’ve shared my love for Luckett’s on the blog before (here and here) so I must share this news: Luckett’s has a spring market once a year where they have tons and tons of flea market vendors, great food and music…and it’s this weekend!  I don’t need a thing and should probably spend the weekend prepping for our move but I think we are going to go to Luckett’s on Saturday.  It’s $10 to get in and it’s totally worth it.  Get there early because this place gets packed!  It’s open today, Saturday and Sunday.

Wine in the Woods.  Wine in the Woods is held at Symphony Woods (next to Merriweather Post Pavilion) in Columbia, MD and they bring in lots of vineyards, food stands, artisans, and bands!  We live within walking distance of this place and have never made it to Wine in the Woods (which is held twice a year, I think).  Last year I was pregnant so I wasn’t interested in going at all, but this weekend we are finally going to make it!   I’m pretty excited.

As for other things that have been on my mind/caught my eye lately, here they are:

Scalloped Swimsuit.  I jumped on the scalloped swimsuit bandwagon this week and bought this black scalloped one piece from Old Navy.  It is definitely not for busty gals because there is no shelf bra or support at all, but for those of us who aren’t quite so blessed it’s adorable!  Shows a little side boob but for about $20 (sale price plus military discount) I figured I’d give it a shot.

The Prettiest Apple Pie Ever.  I had some frozen pie crust to use before we move so I made an apple pie yesterday.  It did NOT look like this pie, by Monica Hibbs.  I wish it did though, but then I probably wouldn’t have eaten it because it this pie is seriously too pretty to eat.

Round Tassel Towel.  My friend Laurel from A Bubbly Life shared her summer wish list a few days ago and this towel was on it.  It’s so stinking cute and looks like it would be perfect for the beach.  Especially with a baby who likes to grab sand (here’s looking at you, baby Jack).  Maybe I can put Jack in the middle of it and he won’t get so sandy?  I really think I need one of these!

Have a great weekend everyone!
