Our Weekend + 2 Years

Monday, March 23, 2015

Today marks two glorious years of marriage to this handsome guy, and I couldn't be happier to call him mine.


I'll spare you the sappy details of how much I love him and how great of a father he is to Rowan. It's definitely been a whirlwind year for us and I cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store for our little family!

We celebrated with lunch at our favorite spot on Shem Creek, Vickery's, and later introduced Rowan to the madness that is Trader Joe's on a Saturday.


We used the car seat attachment on the shopping cart and let me tell you, that shit is not easy to navigate around a busy store. We only took out one cart which I felt like was a success. Side note: Why the eff is it always crazy at TJ's? I don't think I've ever been to one that isn't packed with crazed patrons.


We left with the essentials... clearly. I should also note those cookies are gone already. Not sorry.

Though I joke that Steve's Anniversary gift from me this year was an adorable babe, we decided our gift to each other this year would be a house!


With the babe in tow, we've seen about 8 houses and narrowed it down to two yesterday. Now the hard part is deciding between the cul-de-sac house with a private backyard or the house with a great open concept but lots of neighbors. There are some projects in both houses so I'm excited to make the house ours, whichever one we pick! Stay tuned!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Also, am I the only one that is excited to fill my almost two-month old's Easter basket? And is it acceptable to sneak some egg-shaped Reese's in there for mama?!

  10. Happy Anniversary! I've always loved cul-de-sac houses, especially when you have little ones because they can ride their bikes, ect around the circle and there isn't a lot of traffic to worry about! I'm sure whichever one you choose will be great though!

  21. Happy Anniversary!! Yay for house hunting!! As the mom of a crazy toddler boy I suggest a house with a flat backyard or flat driveway and cul de sac so that they can run around safely and you don't have to stress too much. We're on a busy corner and I'm crazy paranoid about Miller running into the street. Even though I'm right there with him he's pretty fast and you just can't trust people to drive slow. Sorry for my unsolicited advice :)
