Yes, I know it’s April. But it occurred to me that there were lots of fun things about last month that I didn’t want to write about as standalone posts. So, why not combine them? Especially since the grim weather is finally starting to disappear, and I can remember all the good times winter and I had without feeling stabby about the snow.
Last month I bought these adorable new dresses. The red dots are from ModCloth, and the apple dress and grey dress are from Boden. I wore the apples once when the weather dared to climb above 50, but the rest are squirreled away for when the weather is actually warm. When is that going to happen?! This is the longest winter of all time. I want to wear my cute dresses with cute shoes.
We went back to Lancaster July 1-3, but this time it was three generations of women heading to Kitchen Kettle Village. I do love it there, although after our second stay in the Inn at Kitchen Kettle Village I’m a little grossed out by the infrequently-washed carpets. It was much worse this time, I may have to rethink things for our next visit.
This is what we got ourselves up to.
After spending last weekend in DC, Hannah and I dropped Adam off at the train station so he could come back to NYC for work. But I’d decided a couple of months before that it would be really fun for Hannah and me to go away together for a few days during her spring break. A mommy/daughter trip.
So, we (I) decided to drive from Washington to Lancaster county in PA. After a morning running around DC together, we hopped in the car and set off.
Here are some good things that have happened lately, to turn my birthday frown upside down.
One of the GeekMoms, Natania, got a bunch of us hooked on Ipsy. My first bag came last month, and I just got the email that my February bag is on its way. Happy dance! I loved the goodies in the first bag (that Briogeo deep conditioner was amahzing).
After our 3 days in Maine, we spent an afternoon in Portsmouth, NH before heading to Cape Cod for 2 nights.
The main reason we stopped in Portsmouth was because they had a quilt shop. And Portsmouth Fabric Company is a great quilt shop. I scored some Denyse Schmidt, Birch Fabrics, and Cloud9, as well as a great home dec weight hedgehog print from Cosmo.
Other posts on this trip: Connecticut.
Once we left Connecticut we headed back up to Portland. We just loved it so much when we were there in March, and we really wanted to go back to Duckfat.
We were there for 3 days, and we spent more time wandering around the city. East End Cupcakes was yummy.
I haven’t ordered anything from Boden in a while, so I’m really excited for these. From top left going clockwise: Retro Pocket Dress in Sapling Sixties Floral; Casual Tunic Dress (I have 2 of these already) in Ivory Lupine; Leather T Bar Sandals in Seaspray; and Sorrento Dress in Pewter.
