I had been eyeing this past weekend on the calendar for months. It was my first full weekend off since early August AND Branden only had to work in the mornings. I can probably count on one hand the number of times a year that Branden and I are both off on a weekend and this was one of them! So we filled it with all of our favorite things! Friends, food and Busch Gardens!
When we first bought this house, the thing I was most excited for was the ability to host! The first few things we did to the house had that in mind- building a big deck and building a big dining room table! So when I saw this open weekend on the calendar, I immediately texted my friends saying let’s have a fall dinner party!! So on Saturday we welcomed 4 other couples into our home for a dinner party that made all my adulting dreams come true! A home cooked meal around the dining room table, an excuse to play with florals, late night conversations on the deck over mugs of warm apple cider and Cards Against Humanity, of course! If only we could do this every night!
The fun then continued on Sunday with a trip to Busch Gardens Howloscream with those same friends! Branden and I both grew up going to Busch Gardens all the time and we still love it! We usually only get to go once a year now so we try to make it during Howloscream!! Another one of our favorite Williamsburg spots is Colonial Williamsburg, so we’ve almost made it a tradition where whenever we go to Busch, we leave early and make a quick stop in Colonial Williamsburg to walk around! And the crisp fall weather was just the cherry on top to this perfect weekend!
As always, thoughts and happenings from the weekend!
Hope you all had an amazing weekend!! I’m getting right back into the swing of things next weekend with a double header!
