Valentine's Day Getaway [Hyatt Regency Chesapeake]

02.09.19 We were headed to Cambridge for the night, but we stopped in Salisbury and did a little shopping and had lunch at Firehouse Subs.

We always love trying new places, so for this trip we chose the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake  
which had been on my bucket list and splurged on a king bed/balcony with water view room.
It was wonderful! <3

















in Kent Island. It was a gorgeous evening for a drive - about 45 minutes away.

Valentine's Day Getaway [a little visit]

02.08.19 We went out on the evening boat to add an extra night to our Valentine getaway. A little visit with Logan, Lindsey, and Kamry is always welcome. I hadn't seen her in a month and we were both so excited to spend some time together. While they were busy getting dinner ready, Kamry and I went "camping" in a "tent" complete with a zipper to keep the monsters out (after we looked at the stars, moon, and clouds in the sky!) The video clip below is only audio - I want to always remember that little voice and sweet conversations. <3






Helping Daddy cook dinner <3




We had a yummy seafood feast - cream of crab soup, steamed clams, and stone crab claws. 
It was delicious! Always enjoy the love and laughter when we gather around the table together.







The Little Mermaid 

then "iceskating"-- making a "picnic" -- playing with her dollhouse --reading stories

Kamry had a bad cold for over a week and the doctor prescribed the nebulizer (which she hated). :O(


After Kamry went to bed, we sat up til the wee hours talking and laughing and reminiscing.
I enjoy this special time with my children, just hanging out and getting caught up. <3

The next morning, Kamry and Lindsey slept in, but we had coffee with Logan before heading out for the day. What a wonderful time we had!! 


XOXO

Magnolia Table: Chocolate Chip Cookies + Scrabble

Magnolia Table Cookbook
- Joanna Gaines


Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Lazy Sunday evenings call for Chocolate Chip Cookies 🍪 
Joanna did it again! Her recipe calls for less butter and only brown sugar, 
giving the cookies a crispy crust with a soft & chewy center. Delish!

Our family isn't big on game playing - especially Scrabble - except for Derek & I! 
Always LOVE game day!! Some serious Scrabble playing there!
