Jam Packed Tuesday with the Bride!

Today the bride and I had our day of fun. We started off the morning with an early showing of My Sister’s Keeper. I just finished the book and let me tell you, the movie was NOTHING like the book. Completely different ending. I was kind of disappointed. I didn’t enjoy the ending of the book, but I thought it was so much better, something serious to think about, than the boring way they ended the movie. But then again, I always compare every book to movie to the Harry Potter series, and nothing is EVER as good. Anyone else see the movie or have any thoughts?

Post movie we hit up Panera. I love their you pick two combos. I got the Strawberry Poppyseed salad and the Summer Corn Chowder. Both were way to sweet for me, but they looked pretty:

Then the bride and I hit up the Leesburg Outlets. I was pretty good. I restrained myself, but I did make some smart purchases at fabulous deals. I am not one to pass up a good bargain!

Then we stopped by Lansdowne Resort, where the bride is getting married next June! Less than one year baby! I hadn’t seen the place yet, and since I am her MOH (Maid of Honor) she wanted me to see the place to help with decorating ideas. It’s so gorgeous:moving 205

I love the exposed brick, its also a waterfall, which you can’t see. And the backdrop can’t be beat. It is located in Virginia Wine Country. So beautiful!

Who WOULDN’T want to get married here? Check out all the greenerymoving 203

This is where the reception will be. moving 204It has such a warm feeling inside.moving 206

Simply fabulous.  moving 207

The resort is home to a driving range, golf course, spa, restaurants, it even overlooks the Potomac at one point! I love all the character in the small details of the place.

Can you believe the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in the background? I heart nature.moving 208

So like I said, her wedding is a teeny tiny bit less than a year away, but I am sure the time will just fly by. I am sure everything will be beautiful. You couldn’t ask for better scenery!

No Frills Green Monster Morning

Did you enter my Gracie’s Gear Giveaway yet? One hot yellow bra is up for grabs! Don’t forget to enter! If you are a Jackson’s World Follower you get double points, so stalk/follow me!

I am running low on supplies this week for my green monster mornings. This was the last of my spinach, and I doubt I will get more, since I only have 2 more mornings here. What will I do without my Green Monsters?! This one was very tasty. I finished off an almond milk so it was a little over a cup of milk, and it just made it very sweet and lovely. I also have packed away my seeds, so my GMs have been without flax, chia and wheat berries. Tear. It will be glorious when I am reunited in Philly with my seeds, and can bust open my new blender! So pumped.

Today’s GM was plain – spinach, banana, almond milk and ice. Nothing fancy added, everything else is packed away. I also busted out a blender from my grandpa, which I am pretty sure is an antique, but it does the job for now, so that’s all I need.

Here is Jackson posing with my GM. Look at how serious he looks. So regal. I love it.  I am pretty sure he is sad I didn’t make him a GM.

I had to say goodbye to Mich on Sunday. She helped me hardcore organize and get rid of stuff I was holding on to but was never going to use. It was so sad saying goodbye to her. She had to leave from my house to go up to her Grandparents house because her grandma broke her knee (I think that’s what happened) and she is coming back on Thursday, but I will already be gone. TEAR! She was so sweet, she brought me a goodbye/housewarming bag of goodies. She got me Get Happy Tea, since I will be so sad because we will be states apart, a berry bowl, which you can use to rinse the berries, and then store them/take them with you, and they don’t sit in water, it’s awesome. She also got me two awesome storage bags, since I will be having to share my space with a boy, and a candy rosary, which is a little inside thing between us. But I love it all, it was so thoughtful and sweet. Thanks Mich! You have to come up and visit me ASAP! XOXO!moving 198

I am still packing and organizing, obviously, but in a little bit I am going to see My Sister’s Keeper with the bride. I am excited, because I just finished the book, and I have heard good things about the movie. I heard from Polly that there was a few very big differences between the movie and the book. So excited to go see it and spend the day with the bride! I am so sad to leave my Virginia friends, I will miss everyone terribly, but Philly is only a short drive/train/bus ride away. I know we will all keep in touch!

Off to the movies! Happy Tuesday!
