Weekend Recap and a Reader Survey

 Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a good weekend.  Ours was nice and low key. 

Saturday Kyle went golfing early so Mills and I made a donut run. 

I haven't been to Donut Shack (a local donut shop) in years because I'm lazy and always go to the Dunkin Donuts right by our house. Omg I don't know what I've been doing because these donuts are to die for! So, so good.  I think we're all officially converts.

Saturday started out gorgeous but quickly turned to a rainy yucky day.  It would have been a great day for cleaning but someone was on a nap strike all day so that didn't happen.  Let's just say no naps and rain make for a super long Saturday with a busy 1 yr old.


We headed out to celebrate our 5 year anniversary in Annapolis.  Our anniversary isn't until this Friday 8/29 but this was the only date we could get out.  For locals we went to Osteria 177.  We had never been there before but I would definitely go back.  It's Italian food and it was all so good.  We had homemade burrata mozzarella to start and I had penne alla vodka with fresh crab meat and Kyle had a veal Parmesan. We finished off the dinner with creme brulee and (decaf) cappuccino.  We don't go on many date nights anymore just the two of us so it was nice so sneak away for a bit.

We tried to snap a cute couple photo before we left but everyone wanted in on the picture :)
I have to say I love this group of people and my life more than I could have ever imagined 5 years ago.

On Sunday it was absolutely gorgeous so we couldn't stay inside.  We played tourist and walked the Naval Academy and had lunch downtown Annapolis. There were about 1000 other actual tourists down there but it wasn't as bad as we expected. I love when the weather cools and the tourists leave, that's when Annapolis is at its best.




Since September 1st is next week I'm holding onto summer just one more week with this super pink Sinful Colors polish, then I'll start breaking out my moody fall colors. It's called Pink Forever but I call it Barbie Pink.



Now I would love to hear from you all... lately I feel like I'm running out of blog ideas or I have a ton of ideas but don't feel inspired to sit down and actually write.  I would to hear from you all about what you like reading here or if there is anything you want more or less of. 
- baby, pregnancy, life recaps, fashion, around my house, budgeting, shopping, etc.  Feel free to be honest!
 Thanks again for always coming back here and being loyal readers!! 


Linking up with Biana for Weekending

  1. Happy Anniversary! I love your family photo :) That polish is perfect. I've been trying to hold out on going dark for fall, but don't know if I can do it much longer! I really like everything you blog about, but of course I'm biased about all the baby stuff :) :) I also love fashion and home decor posts!

  4. Aw love that photo of your little family!! It looks so beautiful by the water there! I run out of ideas with blogging too, remember to stick to what you want to write about and what is important to you. That said, I personally love the baby posts now that I've got a little one on the way!

  5. Local fresh doughnuts are always better then DD or KK in my opinion!! I love your family picture! So cute that Layla wanted to be in it too. We all get stuck in a rut at times and lack content. I know I am right now!! I always love fashion and just random posts about what's going in your life.

  8. A donut run sounds like my kind of mini-trip and congratulations on your 5-year anniversary! The dish you had sounds delicious, especially with crab! Have a wonderful week xo

  9. You guys are too cute and I loved seeing ya'll had a fun anniversary date night. My internet was down and I missed commenting on a few of your last posts regarding M's eating. Brody is fickle these days with what he's liking and what he's not and I pretty much only get him to eat his vegetables if it's pureed in a store-bought pouch. I love reading all your posts honestly. Of course I love reading about sweet Mills and anything going on in life. I always love day in life posts // food // and the random confessional honest posts!!
