Busy guest filled weekend!

So, as of Friday, my guest room is complete! Well, as complete as the rest of my house. I still need to find a lamp, throw rugs and maybe some curtains.

Welcome Home Granny!

Mom brought me my childhood dresser (also Granny Largent’s, like my bed) and best of all…Granny! My sister-in-law didn’t really want to move into mom’s house if Granny was still there (she gets a little mad when people talk about her and weird stuff happens, like bats flying down chimneys). But I love her! She was quite a strong woman and and very able to take care of herself and think for herself.

The guest room couldn’t have been finished at a better time. Although I’ve already enjoyed having my mom and aunt stay at my house, I got my first non-family guests this weekend! My friends Lauren and Shawn came down from Albany so we had a fun weekend of keeping busy!

We did some further exploring of the Pohick Bay area (not too far from my house) and visited Occoquan with my mom. Then it got interesting for me as I tried to think of places that are *new* since they lived here several years ago. We ended up at National Harbor Saturday night where they set off fireworks just for my visitors! Or at least I like to think so. And Lauren and Shawn had never been to Rosa Mexicano so we enjoyed some tableside guac service, and of course our old favorite, cupcakes from CakeLove (the salted caramel were my favorite)!

    You might want to consider putting a disclaimer below Granny Largent’s picture. I would hate for anything bad to happen in your home especially since you have only been living in it for a year.

    Why a disclaimer? Lauren thought she was awesome. People should just know better than to comment negatively on someone’s home decor! (but it was a little weird to sleep under her this weekend. I faced the door…just in case)
