Home Sweet Home..


We made it home from Boston, friends!
I've missed you all & have so much catching up to do.

{taken from our boat on our whale watch}


It may be a day and a 1/2 later than expected, but we made it home. Due to hurricane Irene, our normal flight home was cancelled and we couldn't get on a flight until the following evening. I wish I had some crazy story about experiencing some of the hurricane, but there wasn't much to see where we were... heavy wind and that was about it, luckily. We had amazing weather every single day of our trip, except for the day of the hurricane.

My aunt and uncle still made the day exciting by cooking us a wonderful anniversary dinner at home... lobsters! :) not too shaby I'd say. We played games all day and ate every hour.

As you all noticed, my hubs had a special guest post for me and I was so thankful and appreciative that he wrote it for me. I'm so lucky to have him. He says thanks for all the comments, by the way. He wanted to break a record or something, I think. hehe

Since we just got back and I'm still behind on LIFE in general, I will be splitting up our trip details on multiple posts, so stay tuned! We experienced/did so much during our vacation and I can't wait to share it all with you! the more posts, the better :)

and a sad, but true fact?
I cannot wait to get some QT with my Pinterest account.
;)


Since I've been neglecting it, I'm going to share some quick loves for the week.





-some goodies I got while on the East coast...



Lilly Pulitzer bangle (but in Navy-couldn't find it online)



Miraposa Whale Bottle Opener
(Whales are special to me..think my maiden last name!)

-that feeling when you are back in your own home, in your own bed.
-that we are reunited with our Rocky and won't be leaving him for a VERY long time. We missed him so so so much...
-family that were so hospitable to us!
-that Buckeye football starts this SATURDAY!
-that this weekend is a long weekend & we get another little break :)
-this book...



I read almost the whole book while traveling yesterday, but I have about 30 pages left to finish tonight!


Have a great Wednesday, everyone!

  3. Welcome home! I've missed you so! It's been weird... I go to your blog more than I think I go to my own just to read what you have been doing in your life... but nothing. I've been so sad. Haha. Also, I've been slacking as well and I haven't had anyone to scream (you) at me for doing it. I've been bad.

    TELL ME ABOUT THAT BOOK!? I downloaded a preview of it on my Kindle about a week ago and read the first few chapters... It was cute so far, but I didn't know how the rest of it would be... so you gotta fill me in!

    Rocky I bet was so happy to see you!

    Need you back in my life. Now.

    K. That is all.

    Xoxox,
    Jess

  9. We spent the hurricane doing the same thing really...playing games and eating delicious food with family...Couldn't ask for a better "stuck inside hoping we don't loose power" plan...

    Glad you weren't too affected by the hurricane on your trip and you were still able to make it special for your anniversary!
