This week? So up and down. I fully intended to have a fun DIY post earlier in the week, but when the supplies I ordered came in, they were not what I expected, so I got a refund and I’m back to square one on that. Then it was my birthday, which is obviously an up, and then it was not my birthday anymore, which is kind of a down. Today started with a flat tire, but it was a quick (although expensive!) fix, and it’s Friday and I have a fun weekend planned, so more up than down!
(1) I’m always the last to watch these viral videos, mostly because I have the attention span of a gnat and I can’t sit still for anything longer than a flash of light, but this one has been all over social media this past week and it caught my attention. It’s too good not to share.
Kind of reminds me of this one, which is also worth watching:
(2) I’ve talked about New England Olive Oil Company before here, but I’ve found another LOVE in Concord, MA and I’m excited to be visiting them both again this weekend. The Cheese Shop had been recommended to us by a few friends and I have no idea why it took us so long to try it. It has an old-fashioned general store feel to it and everything we’ve sampled or bought so far has been incredible. It’s more than just a cheese shop – you can also get wine, gourmet jams & spreads, chocolate, and deli sandwiches there, among other things. If you’re local (or plan to be in the area), it’s definitely worth the visit!
(3) We’ve been planning our annual vacation, which seems like it’s going to be either Montreal or Washington, D.C. While D.C seems to have more for us to do, Montreal has these incredible botanical garden sculptures that I think would be great to photograph! I mean, look at these things. Ridiculous.
(4) Speaking of D.C, I’ve been somewhat obsessed with House of Cards lately, so you can imagine my excitement at getting to tour my State House this week as part of a networking event. I have never really been interested in politics or history before, so this is kind of a new thing for me. I played the part of Obnoxious Tourist and came home with over 150 photos and a whole lot of new fun facts.
Those have been my ups this week, what are yours?!
