Oh hey, happy Fourth! So much to catch up on!
Last week, Jen and I met up with her mom for a tour of Maine. We started in Boothbay Harbor and headed up to Bar Harbor/Acadia before checking out Bangor, Portland, then Kennebunkport. The entire trip we had the most insanely beautiful, unbelievably nice weather. I couldn’t get over the gorgeous rocks and all the pottery in Maine!
The downside was that I tripped on rocks in Acadia and sprained my ankle.
I got back late on Monday, and did laundry and made burritos.
Then I met up with some friends for a Boy & Bear concert.
You guys, they were AWESOME. They sounded amazing and were so funny and sweet. They played songs the audience requested, told jokes, and were just adorable with their Australian accents. My favorite song…
I just repacked what I took for Maine for Ohio. I left after work on Tuesday for Mindi & Tom’s in Windsor. We had white wine and salads, slept for a few hours, then hit the road at 3:45 a.m. for our 12 hr drive to southern Ohio.
They stayed at my parent’s place before heading down to Tom’s family’s place in Cincinnati and my mom had dinner all ready for us. Wish I’d gotten a picture! Roasted potatoes, sautéed green beans, fresh corn, and baked cod. Followed up with homemade cheesecake. Delish!
Baby Amelia, such a doll.
My parent’s are watching my sister Allison’s cat while she moves in Columbus. Isn’t she pretty? And she loves to sit like this…ha!
Then we rallied and went out to our old college bar, Station One. The bathroom looks the same! We had memories of waiting in long lines for this single stall, almost prison-like bathroom.
The next morning we walked around Wittenberg’s campus and ate at Mike & Rosy’s. I ordered my favorite sandwich: turkey with cheddar, lettuce, and spicy mustard. They steam their sandwiches, which makes them all warm and gooey. Mindi, Tom, and Avery headed out and I went to TARGET. Vermont is the only state in America that still does not have a Target, so when I’m in Ohio, I like to go almost every day.
What are you all up to for the Fourth of July? I have no big plans, yay! My parent’s are headed to Italy in a few weeks, so right now I’m blogging/helping them pack. (MOM’S TRYING TO BRING WAY TOO MUCH! I showed her this.) How cute is this outfit, though?! All from JCrew outlet dad tells me.
And I think my ankle’s healed enough to go for a walk….at last! Have a fun and safe holiday weekend!
