The house hunting continued this weekend. Saturday started bright and early with my weekly weigh in at WW (down another 1.8!) and then off we went into Northport, our town of choice.
Saw this beautiful site when I came home after WW. All of the boys were dressed and eating breakfast so that could quickly hit the road.
View from Main St:
Sadly all of the houses were a bust! I feel like goldilock. One is too small, one is too big, etc, etc. We just haven’t found the one. After lunch in town with Asher’s godmother we headed back home to get ready for the beach!
Hudson had been asking to go all week so we invited some friends and headed to the beach for smores and some night time fishing.
Such a fun night!
On Sunday we got an early start and Jon took Hudson off for a haircut.
After breakfast we all got ready and then hit the road again with my sister in tow to check out 5 open houses!
Again nothing felt like home except for this place:
From outside it looked a bit blah and we didn’t even have it on our list of houses to check out, but we drove by and saw the sign and decided to go in. It needs to be totally re-done on the inside, but it had good flow, the right amount of bedrooms, extra space, close to beach, and in my favorite town. Downside the street was a bit skinny so there isn’t any street parking. Fine for us, because we can use the driveway, but not sure what visitors would do and it had a small backyard.
After dragging my sister around to all of those open houses we took her into town to show her what we fell in love with and treat her to some ice cream! Poor Ash looked like he wanted ice cream so badly!
Don’t worry though he has started to eat food and got to have some carrots while we were having dinner at my parents house.
After dinner we headed home to wrap up the weekend and get the kiddos to bed. Then I got to unpack lots of goodies from the mailman that had arrived on Saturday.
Lots of packages from Home Depot for the Holiday Style Challenge:
I made the mistake of washing my favorite Going to Market tote by Blair Ritchey when you were only suppose to spot it clean it. I emailed Blair to let her know what happened and she was sweet enough to send me a replacement! So super nice of her! Can’t wait to start using it again.
After going through the mail I did a little client work and played around with some bedding I sourced for a client.
And finished off the night admiring my new bracelet.(Thanks Liz! I love it!)
100% of net proceeds of this bracelet from now through October benefit the Noreen Fraser Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for women’s cancer research and creating awareness of the importance of early detection. Great bracelet for a great cause!
I also enjoyed a little of a new favorite snack, Chicago popcorn from Trader Joes.
As someone who loves those popcorn bins that you see during the holidays with a mix of cheddar, caramel and plain popcorn this Chicago mix is amazing! Love a little bit of sweet and savory. Delicious!
