It’s been months since I did a Weekend Wanderlust post. Months. Since I had a pretty magical weekend, I thought it was time to revisit Weekend Wanderlust and hopefully bring it back as a bi-weekly / weekly series here on IBC. Sound good?
Travel. First up, my friends and I hopped in a car last Thursday and headed north to Vermont for some other friends’ house warming party. (I think I mentioned this on Friday.) This was the first significant amount of time I’ve spent in Vermont. We didn’t do many tourist things since we were there to visit our friends, but we did have a fabulous trip and got a chance to see a few spots in the area. Plus, we travelled across Lake Champlain (with our car) via ferry. That was a first for me! (Oh, and my colorful tropical shoes are from here. I’m obsessed. Plus, they were/are on sale!)
Wed. To our surprise, our friends who were having the house warming, actually also had a big backyard wedding. This just made the weekend that much more epic. So, major congrats to Joe and Tyler!
Eat. While I failed to take pictures of all of the fabulous wedding food, I did manage to get a shot of this charcuterie and cheese platter. A larger mirror was the base of the spread, and various sized martini glasses held the rest of the goodies. I just love this idea for a large party.
Drink. Part of the weekend festivities included a trip to local wineries. We also swung by Magic Hat. I was particularly excited about this as I’m a big fan of their Elder Betty beer. I also visited my first cidery, Citizen Cider, and sampled a few of their brews.
Create. While driving around, we stumbled upon this fabulous fire hydrant art. I thought it was pretty impressive so I had my friend Krista snap a quick pic out of the car window.
Snap. Among the many activities at the wedding was a photo booth. I love this particular photo because this trip also allowed us to form new friendships. That’s one of the wonderful things about weddings and parties in general – diverse groups of people coming together with the opportunity to meet new and interesting people.
Hang. In other news, my closet system has arrived. I hope to install it in my new bedroom this week / weekend and share it with you next week.
Display. I also picked up a few frames to create an art wall in my living room. My plan is to hang them up this week and give you a little update on that in the very near future.
Hope you had a fabulous weekend as well. What exciting things did you do or find?
