Every 4 Years

I had a mild obsession with the Olympics.  I hate that it is only every 4 years.  I’m going to have to get into the Winter games in 2014.  I believe I successful caught a glimpse of every sport.  This year I really enjoyed the archery (like everyone else), modern pentathlon, fencing, and the indoor cycling.  
We had planned an Olympic party but my mama had surgery so the week of the opening ceremonies we cancelled.  Well the day of she was feeling better and my sister was in town with her bf and their costumes.  So since it is only every 4 years we pulled together a few peeps and had a little shindig.  

It looked a little like this…

the family [mom and dad wore their usher and security uniforms from the '96 games]

I found my mama dress from her 9th grade homecoming dance and the Mr. found a British type hat and we were Duchess Kate and Harry...not sure we really pulled it off but I think for a last minute outfit it's not too bad ?

I really am sad it's over....but it's still on the DVR!  We had a blast!

Where did you go on vacation?

Our answer is – Delware. 

It’s funny to see the look on faces when I answer this question.  Down south, Delware doesn’t come up in conversations very often.  We had a great trip to Rehoboth Beach, Delware.  It was absolutely adorable and may be a more frequently visited location for us.  The Mr. chose the location because Rehoboth/Milton is home to the Dogfish Head Brewery.  Luckily for me it happens to be located in a super cute quaint beach town.
my two little pictures I squeezed in

now for the Mr.'s pictures

aren't there offices pretty!!

palo santo tanks, made from palo santo wood (the 2nd hardest wood in the world)

the Mr. purchases...round 1

 To make the trip even more exciting for the Mr. we happen to meet a brewer at the Brew Pub bar.  After closing down the bar we the Mr. had found a new friend.  Total coincidence turned into a private brewery tour, lots of information, and a man crush for the Mr.

the Mr. on his very extensive private tour...there are another 300 photos but I won't bore you with 300 photos of stainless steal pipes and tanks.

I was beyond impressive with our experience at the brewery especially our private tour guide.  He went to work at 6am and then met us afterwards and gave us a 2 hour tour!!  He was so nice and informative.  Dogfish Head gets a A+++ on customer service and company culture.
I think that is probably enough photos for one post!  Until my next photo unload, have a great day!

Playing Catch Up

I’m back from a little and much needed break.  The world hasn’t stopped spinning in our bungalow but I needed a little summer break.  I don’t have many fun accomplishments or projects.  The beginning of the school season I always feel like getting organized and shopping.  The calendar is quickly filling up and I’m so excited for football season, all things fall, birthdays, our anniversary, and a few fun get-a-ways.
We have some fun things to plant over the next few days and lots of summer photos to sift through.  I’m very excited to get back into a regular routine of house work, working out, and perhaps even blogging a bit more often.   Hope you all have a great week!
