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.
Today 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!
