Five on Friday!

Now that the cat is out of the bag on the house stuff it may explain my blog absence lately. There are a handful of significant issues with our new home that came up during inspections so we’ve literally been spending all of our non-working time on house stuff. In fact, I have been stopping by the new house 1-3 times a day to meet with contractors, drop off fixtures, answer questions, etc. It’s all exciting stuff it just keeps us even busier than normal!

Anyway, a few things as of late to share…

one. Shortly after we put our home on the market a friend sent me a Saint Joseph statue to bury for good luck and an expedited home sale. I was a bit skeptical after reading the directions which included burying Saint Joseph upside down, facing the house, near the for sale sign. However, we needed all the luck and blessings we could get for a quick sale in order to purchase our new home so we decided to give this old catholic tradition a go. Now that we’ve sold we’re supposed to dig him up and bring him to the new house for continued luck.

two. Soccer! Caroline is still loving soccer and last weekend Mimi and Grandad came to watch her play! And also watch Thomas play in the soccer goals.

three. Earlier this week a few of my girlfriends got together at Foxcroft Wine to drink some old lady Chardonnay and devour tons of yummy apps. This warm weather is just too perfect for wine nights.


four. A Food Truck Friday location just opened in our neighborhood last month! We love FTF but this one is probably the best one we’ve been to yet because…it is held at a church with two GATED playgrounds, a massive lawn with picnic tables, a live band and a long line of delicious food trucks! We went last week and had the very best time. Many of our neighborhood friends and C & T’s classmates were there and the kids played SO hard until dark. Caroline has asked me every morning this week “Is today Friday?” and I get it…I’m ready for more tacos and beers tonight too. Now if only we could get Thomas to stay out of the sandbox (sandbox + contacts don’t mix!).

five. I cut 3 inches off my hair! Matt was shocked that I actually did it since I normally chicken out and just ask for a trim.

    Congratulations on the sale of the house, and I'm hoping the stuff with the new house gets resolved quickly. We're totally Baptist, but you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be buying one of those statues when we sell this house (which has given us tons of issues) and bury it at our new house in a few years! 😉 Happy Friday!
