Weekend Adventures!

What a weekend! I’m a little sad it’s Monday, since the weekend was so much fun. But then again, just because it’s Monday, doesn’t mean I can’t find an adventure for the evening…

Friday, my roommates and I had a housewarming party. Here’s me and my workout buddy, Eric.

Love him! And he’s not only my workout buddy, but also my gardening companion!

Saturday we started planting our garden!!

Wanna know what happens when two enthusiastic yet indecisive people decide to plant a garden?… We planted cantaloupe, watermelon, pumpkin, zucchini, tomatoes, pepper, onions, cilantro, and mint!

Sunday was a random adventure day. I went to the Flavor Beer Wine and Food festival.

I got to try lots of food samples, so that was pretty cool! After a pool party and a graduation party, some of us decided to hit the driving range. Good thing I wore my golfing attire…

I won’t tell you how many “practice swings” I took before actually hitting the ball… but it was fun.

What did you do this weekend? Have you ever planted a garden?

  1. Check out that swing! 😉 Ive never actually swung a real golf club before, only put put golf!

  2. sounds like a fun weekend!!!!!! we just stayed at home and relaxed!

  3. Your garden sounds so great – can’t wait to see the progress! 🙂

  4. I wish we had a place to plant a garden! My mom tried growing cantaloupe last year and it never turned…hoping for success this coming season though!

    My weekend? rollerblading, ice cream, water for elephants movie, and catching up with an old friend! IT was wonderful…just not long enoguh!

    • Oh fun!!! I’m super lucky that where I work has a community garden, so I got a plot there 🙂 I don’t really have a yard at my house so it’s nice I can do it at work!

  5. I went to a Wine and Craft fair in Front Royal Va. It was so fun. Probably the biggest wine festival I had ever been too. It turned out to be a beautiful day for it.

  6. Your garden sounds amazing! I can’t wait to have space to create a garden of my own 🙂

    I haven’t been golfing yet this year and your pictures make me want to go. Badly.

  7. Golfing in a dress — my kind of girl!

  8. AHwow! there are so many ppl planting gardens these days!!! i dnt think i cud do it myself!

  9. gardening is almost therapeutic ya know? I love it! wish I could have a huge garden!
    Nice golf form girl.

  10. Love the garden! :)))
    Watch out for those pumpkins, I heard they spread fast!


  11. Your weekend looks infinitely more fun than mine, and I am super jealous.
    I want to hang with you and your workout buddy. We can be like the good look 3 musketeers.
    I like this plan.

  12. Your weekend sounds like fun! And I love your golf-appropriate attire, haha. I’ve got a garden of my own going (okay, okay–I have a few plants in dirt of my own going)–zucchini, cucumber, tomato and herbs!

  13. What a super adorable garden and I love that golfing picture. I’ve never golfed 🙂

  14. You are so cute! 🙂

    We’ve had a garden, and our favorite plants to grow (because they do well) are green bell peppers and tomatoes! 🙂

  15. Sounds like a great weekend! Indecisive gardening is the best kind =) you get so much yummy variety that way! <3

  16. sounds like fun stuff! i went dancing two nights in a row!!!! 🙂 and i get indecisive about my garden choices too.. i want EVERYTHING..haha.so i try new things every year and see what grows the best….i love gardening! 🙂 and we have a fairly large garden, together as a family.

  17. oh my goodness, workout buddy and garden buddy!?! SO jeal. 🙂 that festival looks like SO much fun! gotta love the free samples hehe and I planted a small garden with tomatoes and such this season, I’m super excited for it to start growing more!

  18. Great weekend! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Food & Wine Fests 🙂 But I can’t garden to save my life.

  19. Oh I can’t wait to have a large garden! If only I could get my black thumb to turn green 🙂
    And I love going to the driving range- even though it’s been forever- love your ‘golf outfit’ 😉

  20. so er, um, can I just ask a stupidly obvious question? That garden plot that Eric is in front of. That’s not where you planted ALL those veggies is it? I just wanted to be sure because you know watermelon will spread and take up to about ten feet. And zucchini, assuming it’s like squash, will take at least a 3 foot radius.

  21. Haha! Golf is WAY harder than it looks! The first time I tried, I took more than a few “practice swings” haha!

  22. your garden looks beautiful im so jealous!! I went golfing this weekend too wooo! 🙂

  23. It looks like you had such a fun weekend! The garden sounds so awesome! 🙂

  24. I really want to plant a garden! I am determined to grow pumpkins 🙂

  25. Your garden looks gorgeous! I am so indecisive…I would probably have done the same thing! Right now, I’m starting off small with one little tomato plant to test out my theory of my inherited “black thumb”! Haha!

  26. “I don’t inhale,” just came down with bladder cancer. Bladder cancer has very strong ties to smoking. I’m jes’ sa;02’&#8n3iyMy husband nags me about flossing. It makes him feel better, so I let him do it.

  2. […] and I were going to the driving range with the boys. Not because I’m a golfer (although this picture could prove that wrong) but because I love whacking golf balls. My dad says I have “good […]
