Weekend Highlights

The weather was so perfect this weekend I really can't even put it into words. When the weather is this nice it feels like all is well in the world. We took advantage of as much outdoor time as possible because storms are in the forecast for the entire week coming up.


Friday night dinner at Room 11-- food pictures because who doesn't love those?


Saturday at the Annapolis Arts, Crafts, and Wine Festival followed by lunch on the deck at Mike's Crab House. My husband got to have his first Maryland crabs of the summer & fried shrimp for me. The South River looked gorgeous & even though we weren't out on the water, the breeze felt pretty nice.


Overall, a lot of time spent on our newly stained deck. Coffee, breakfast, dinner, and lots of reading took place outdoors. In April I planted radishes and zucchini and the radishes were a flop (I read the seed package wrong and planted them in the wrong season- oops!) My zucchini have flowered so I'm crossing my fingers they grow some zucchini soon!

I finally finished Case Histories by Kate Atkinson-- has anyone else read it? I really didn't care for it at all & will probably wait and put my review in a book post eventually.

As all good weekends go, the end is always bittersweet when you snap back to reality on Monday. Here's to a great second week of June! What were some of the highlights from your weekend?

  10. a wine festival?! That sounds amazing! I wish we had weather in Charlotte, NC like you guys did. It was awful here and ruined my plans (of course). Is that BBQ in the first food picture?

  11. Holy wow - that food. Glad I already ate lunch or you'd have me keeled over in jealous. Haven't heard of that book but I'll make a mental note for the 'naughty' list ha. Deck time is the best! Fingers crossed that you get some zucchini!

  24. Eh, I attempted to read a book by that author before and just couldn't get into it. Good to know this one wasn't anything great. The rest of your weekend looks awesome though! Glad you had such great weather!

  25. I love zucchini! We used to grow it at my cottage but then the trees grew tall and now the plants wouldn't get enough sun - they were so delicious though!

  26. When it's nice out I just want to do it all! Though sitting by the water usually wins! The festival sounds like so much fun!

  29. Sounds like you had a great weekend girly!! It's so wonderful to be outside when the weather is nice as compared to sitting indoors. Sorry to hear you didn't really take a liking to your book - I haven't heard of it myself personally.
