Catching up + Exciting News

Today's post is a bit picture heavy but includes a bit of what I have been up to, including this past weekend on my trip to Philadelphia. 

Thursday I was able to head out of work a tad early and hit the road home to Maryland for the night in order to break up the trip a bit. Unfortunately my parents were still out of town on vacation but I was able to get in some good snuggles with this guy...
What better way to start the morning then coffee and playing ball with my favorite furry friend. I ended the morning with a sweaty but great 3 mile run. One of the many reasons I love coming home to my parents is they have a treadmill in their basement which makes working out almost too convenient. 

While I was home I also snapped some of my favorite areas of home. I absolutely love our porch and also how my mom has chosen to decorate it. 

Another favorite spot of mine is the entry way wall or mirrors. This was an idea my mom had and I have to compliment her creativity. This would be a great idea if you have a small entry way and are looking for a way to open things up a bit. 

Friday afternoon I headed up to Philadelphia to spent the night with one of my best friends that was in town from California. The last time I saw her was my trip out to San Francisco over a year ago so needless to say, it was wonderful to see her. We spent the night hitting up a few different bars in Philly and had a great time. 

Saturday I was up early and headed to the shore to enjoy some time on the beach. My family has a home in Avalon and I hate that I am so far away and can't enjoy it as much as I would like. It was such a great day spent laying out and relaxing I am already trying to plan my next trip up!

Sunday it was time to hit the road for a full day of driving. From the shore back to Philly, then a stop at home in Maryland before it was back on the road and home to North Carolina. Now the exciting news- all of this driving was possible because I finally got a new car! I am happy to announce I am a happy new car owner and have loved every second spent in the new car, even if it was for almost a whole day. 

How did you spend your weekend?
Yours truly, 
Emily ann
