Weekend Rundown (Holiday Spirit)

Fa la la la la it’s crazy season! December days are chock full of things to do it’s a miracle I’m able to cross all the things off my list! Granted, a lot on my checklists do inevitably roll over to the next day. I am dreaming of January and being able to catch up on my personal life after our busy season in the events and catering world. It’s such a rush getting to see these events come to life over the weeks of planning but goodness gracious my mind never shuts off with things I need to do to keep organized and stay on top of everything. My sister asked recently if I had ever heard of Float tanks as a form of stress relief but to be honest, I think I would have a panic attack from sitting still and only being with my thoughts for an […]

Weekend Rundown: Thanksgiving Edition

First and foremost, Happy belated Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing weekend with their loved ones. I also hope everyone still fits into their jeans this morning after a feast of a weekend. Thanksgiving is no joke. My sister-in-law approved leggings for Thanksgiving dress code and I could not have been happier to keep it casual this year. Yay for stretchy pants to allow for extra helpings at dinner.  Our Thanksgiving dinner was at my brother’s house down in the Virginia Beach area.  My sidekick for the weekend is pictured below since we didn’t bring Bailey along for the trip. They have a total of four dogs already under their roof so we had our fill of puppy cuddles to hold us over. I brought my Roasted Root Vegetable Recipe which I had prepped the night before we left and transported in my favorite Le Creuset Casserole. If only I had […]

Weekend Rundown

Happy Monday and Happy Halloween everyone! I hope everyone was able to partake in some spooky and festive things in this past weekend. I’m so excited to hand out candy this year to all the trick or treaters. Bailey even has her “old man” jacket to dress up and most likely just sit on the couch just as an old man would. But first, I reminisce on this past weekend which was chock full of good memories. Follow along below!  The image above is not my announcement but I AM the person behind the lens. Friday evening my best friend came over and we helped her take the images to use for her pregnancy announcement. It was a race against sunset but we did it! She posted it Saturday morning and I could not be happier for her. We get to meet this little one in April!  Five years ago I planned an impromptu camping trip […]

Weekend Rundown

It always makes it hard to accept it’s Monday when the weekend before was really, really good. This weekend was chock full of activities with friends, family and as always, cuddles with Bailey. I am feeling especially thankful and blessed this morning and what better way to share in some of the activities than with pictures?  Friday night was laid back after getting home late and wanting nothing more than to relax after the week with this one above. It still amazes me how she loves nothing more than to veg out on the couch and nestle in my legs. Whoever said this breed is vicious needs to spend an evening with a Pitbull.  Mom and Pop’s Coffee Shop has the best coffee and pastries for a perfect Saturday morning start to the weekend. Saturday morning started with a stroll around Mosaic District by our house with a coffee, some shopping […]

Weekend Rundown

Happy Monday everyone!  Another weekend has come and gone but this one was jam packed with friends and family activity with a bit of work thrown in as well. ‘Tis busy season!! Friday was a girls’ night at my best friend’s house with her little bundle of adorableness adding to the trio. These girls are more like sisters and it’s not often enough that we can all 3 get together anymore since we are all living our busy adult lives. Needless to say, it was a refreshing night!  Saturday morning I got up early and hung around the house with an oversized cup of coffee and finally finished my Bookcase Makeover which I have been trying to find time to finish forever.  I followed this up with the more mundane weekend “chores” and baking that I knew I wouldn’t have time for on Sunday. I honestly don’t know how a family of more […]

Weekend Rundown

Nothing on the schedule yet so productive. That’s exactly how this past weekend went down. I was pretty bad about taking pictures of our everyday happenings but I have a fun project in the works (hint: it’s my built-in bookshelf makeover) for a DIY blog post later this week.  I was supposed to be in NYC visiting friends but the trip was postponed until further notice. This left me with a wide open schedule and lots of time to plot, plan and prep for exciting things to come on Root + Revelry and also with my husband’s hobby turned side gig. We spent some time on Sunday taking pictures for his website and in the process worked on detailing some cars. Bailey turned out to be quite the model shop dog: Some other highlights from the weekend included visiting my nephew, outdoor Happy Hour on Friday night (yay for nice […]

Weekend Rundown

Happy Monday everyone! Let’s all take a moment to raise our coffee (or tea!) and cheers to the weekend past and embrace the week ahead. You have to stay cheerful and excited fro the week ahead on Mondays, right?  While the weekend was rainy and drab the silver lining was we got to sleep with the windows open to the sound of rain. The patter of raindrops is the most serene and natural way to wake up. YAY for the occasional stretch of overcast and rainy weather on the weekends! While I would’ve loved to stock up on popcorn, wine and pumpkin flavored goodies to have a Netflix binge…I had a busy weekend between work and family events.  We were on the go the entire weekend and somehow it always feels like there really needs to be another day between Saturday and Sunday. Ya feel me?  Friday night we stayed in since my […]
