pocahontas and other girls

August 9
High-fiving the US Women's Soccer team gold medal.

August 10
End of the day panic photo. Is it the dresser! Or the closet! Or the bed! I like to keep people on their toes.

August 11
Shockoe Bottom
That's the train station at night. We ate dinner at Bottom's Up and this was the sight greeting us when we got back to the car. I mean, it was there when we arrived and got out of the car, but it wasn't all lit up and glowing.

August 12
Sleeping baby, sleeping dog.

August 13
I could stop here and Andy would have a pretty awesome arm warmer!

August 14
Pocahontas State Park
My friend Molly and I took a day adventure and went to this park. We hiked and, wait for it...paddle boated! It was pretty much the best Tuesday ever.

August 15
Dining Room
Andy brought home a box of fresh peaches. I peeled and pitted all of them.

August 16
Living Room
Floor time with Adah. She's hanging with my gator. He could eat her, but he's soft and nice.

Thursday, August 9

we checked something off the list!

July 23
Fresh cherry and nectarine pie trying out a vegan crust. What I learned: That crust needs to bake for about two hours!

July 24
Sweet Adah. All she does is sleep.

July 25
Dining Room
Rearrangements from Mom's visit. Our dining room is now just a room with the cyborg in it.

July 26
Culinary School
One reason I like this job is because this was my dinner while at work. And that's when there was just one chocolate on my plate.

July 27
We went out to check on the dog at the Whitten's and they have a pink wheelbarrow for girl gardening.

July 28
Living Room
Adah visits for the first time and she dresses real cute for the occasion! 

July 29
Working on getting our wedding bands so we emailed a picture of my engagement ring to the guy who made it.

July 30
Church Hill
I guess if I were a bird in a cage I would want to be a bird in a cage on a front porch.

July 31
New Dining Room (ie. Sunroom)
So many people came to work wanting good bread for BLTs. I could not stop thinking about bacon so this was my solution. Homemade veggie quinoa burgers. With bacon on them.

August 1
Lewis Ginter
Butterflies alive! You can go in a room in the conservancy with hundreds of neat butterflies flying around. 
*Side note: We can now say that we are getting married next month!*

August 2
Old Dining Room
Hosting potluck. Lots of good food, drink, and company.

August 3
Club Road
This tree had arms all over the place.

August 4
Somebody brought flowers home.

August 5
Car Floorboard
I looked down on my way to work and noticed that the same somebody who brought flowers home also rainbowed my laces! Though he adamantly denies it.

August 6
We wanted to weigh Adah on the kitchen scale but it maxes out at 5 lbs. Instead we just put her in the fruit bowl.

August 7
Hugo Kohl Studio, Harrisonburg
We went to pick out our wedding bands! Hugo uses antique presses to make rings and such. There are some funny tweedle dee and dum ones on that lower shelf.

Skyline Drive
We took the scenic route home.

August 8
I could be dangling my legs over a dock in to the ocean, but it's just me getting in to bed.
