Tommy & Karen, our newest family members!

We participated in a fun event to raise money for the local children’s hospital on Saturday.  My mom and sister made the trek over to take part in the fun too!  It was a lot more hands-on than we first though, lol, but we had lots of fun.  We went to the local MacDonald’s Garden Center in Virginia Beach and made life-sized scarecrows!  They had all of the supplies plus lots of fun clothing and accessories to look through to really dress up your newly made folks.  Although H was a little young for this event, he seemed to enjoy running all around and playing a little game of “chase” with my mom while sister and I took on the building process.  My scarecrow was named Tommy, and my sister’s was named Karen.  Tommy might need to make some better food/activity level choices in the near future as he was stuffed to the point of bursting with straw.  Karen, however, was quite modelesque with her stylish duds.  Here are a few pictures from the morning…

What a fun day!  We dropped off H with the Mr., so I could enjoy a nice lunch with grown-ups at a kid-unfriendly location.  We picked Mermaid Winery in the Ghent area of Norfolk.  It was yummy and so pleasant to sit outside on a fall day.  I had the Mermaid sandwich with roast beef and horseradish.  Delish!  I also had the Mermaid wine flight, and it was so cool to be able to sample the different wines without commitment to one!

After a delicious and relaxing lunch, we headed up to MacArthur for some family photo session shopping.  I got this top for the session.  I’m going to pair it with some dove-colored suede ankle boots and dark wash straight leg jeans.

5052479_250_1Today is going to be filled with grocery shopping and meal planning and although that might sound boring, I’m kind of excited to get some variety in my life!  I feel like I’ve been in a food rut particularly for breakfast and treat/dessert time.  I’m looking forward to a Trader Joe’s trip after church for some more inspiring finds.  Have a great Sunday!
