Another Hike and Another {Bowling} Ball of a Weekend

Morning and happy Monday, loves. I hope your weekend was great and fabulous. We had a GORGEOUS weekend here in NOVA and spent a ton of time outside enjoying springtime. Le Husband and I made plans for another hike since last week was so tough. This hike was further west and a lot easier of a hike, but just as beautiful. I was so thrilled to be back in hiking action, being sick is no fun right?!?!

This weekend I…

//loved the beautiful view from the first peak, even though spring has not fully sprung.

//dealt with a lot of shadows in our pictures #darntrees

//found our next hiking spot…appalachian trail we're coming for you.

//enjoyed another peaceful [and NOT SICK] hike.

//took another FRAMER!

//did some more yoga on a mountain. #balancingstick #needtogethatbackleguphigher

//contemplated living somewhere with a view like this everyday. #wheredowewannamove

//ate some more amazing barbecue. I am loving our trips and good food finds.

//came home changed quickly then headed to the bowling alley to grab some lanes for my birthday party.

//loved my flower birthday crown made by babyspice! #sheissotalented

//had a fabulous time bowling with my parents. #yesiinvitethemtomybirthdayparty

//tried to show my muscles but just looked angry, oops.

//loved celebrating another birthday with my husband.

//bowled well the first game but lost it that 2nd game. Oh well, it was fun to play.

//felt like a bowling princess with my beautiful flower crown. It was such a fun night with friends and family and the perfect way to end birthday week. #soblessedandthankful

//woke up Sunday and realized I completely forgot to set my alarm to get to Target for #lillyfortarget . Was really upset but then found out how impossible it was to get merchandise so didn't feel as bad. I wanna hear your stories, ladies. Was it as bad online and in the stores as people say?

//got ready for  church, did a quick change at my parent's home then met my bestie for playdate with her and her three wonderful munchkins. We played at the park for an hour then it was ice cream time!

//realized a chalkboard equals fun over and over and over again.

//loved on this sweet smily baby girl. Mama B also made an appearance :)!

//played in an early soccer game and had a baller sneaktastic goal with an assist from Babyspice. #yaysistergoals #bestwaytobeatajerkofateam #ialsofouldthecrapoutofadudethattookoutbabyspice #dontmesswithmysister

//finally switched over from a 4s to a 5s! WOW, what a difference. #silverissopretty #yaynewphone

//ate a really bad for me dinner, but hey it happens sometimes.

//watched playoff hockey, read and then hit the hay. #loveplayoffhockey

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

Jessica said...

Loving that flower crown - perfect for a birthday girl!:) So glad you were feeling better this weekend and were able to enjoy a beautiful hike with the hubs! And girl, I didn't snag any Lilly stuff either and I'm really not sad about it. Those people be crazy! I'd rather sleep than wait in those lines and fight people for some shift dresses and charm bracelets!

Beautiful pictures! I wanted to go on a hike this weekend but it wouldn't stop raining/was too muddy to get the dogs out. I also missed the Lily sale, but it sounded like it was crazy so maybe it's better. Happy Monday!

The flower crown is so fun! Sounds like a really great weekend. I would love to hike the Appalachian Trail someday! Happy birthday!

Looks like an awesome weekend! Its so fun that you got to celebrate your birthday through the weekend. The flower crown is so cute! The pictures from the hike are amazing. I recently switched phones too, and the biggest difference for me is having the fingerprint unlock feature! It makes it so easy to unlock the phone without even having to look at it. Hope you enjoy it!

Hope you have a great week!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Cute birthday crown and the b'day festivities sound fun!! Glad you enjoyed!

That little cutie is just too much! Love your new phone; 5s is life-changing for sure. And now I have the 6-plus and am OB-sessed since getting it as an early bday gift from my parents. Bowling nights are the best, right!?

Rebecca Jo said...

I love a gal who can pull of a flower crown :)

So glad you were able to hike without feeling yucky!!!

Those trees need some leaves STAT!

Courtney B said...

What a perfect weekend!! Love that you hiked! I'm seriously itching to get out hiking... but the scenery here in Arizona will be much different than I'm used to! I miss the greenery of Zion National Park!
I'm so glad you're feeling better! I was MIA due to being in Utah last week, but I'm excited to catch up on your life! I hope being sick wasn't a total downer on your birthday :( Love you, girl!!

Teh Megan said...

I'm completely biased, but the Appalachians are the best mountains.

Life As You Live It said...

Your mountain yoga skills impress me! What a beautiful day to take a hike!!
