Another wonderful weekend!  Some things didn't go quite as planned, but we made up for it with spontaneous replacement fun :)  K and I planned to get up for the sunrise hot air balloon launch in Stowe on Saturday, but we overslept (surprise, surprise).  Instead, we went to Montpelier for a late breakfast at the Coffee Corner (I had the "Florentine"--spinach, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers and mushrooms with scrambled eggs over hash browns--heavenly) and wandered around town killing time before the matinee of "To Rome with Love" at the Savoy.  We'd never been in the downstairs before and it was so cool and lounge-y!  The movie was okay.  It started out good but sort of spiraled into a bunch of unnecessary bed-hopping and ever-so-slowly developing plot points.  No "Midnight in Paris" or "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (two of my favorites and his other recent homages to foreign cities).  After the movie we drove to Woodbury for some last minute rehearsal, and then it was off to the White Rock for pizza and music-playing!  We had a good time, and the show finally wound down around 11.

Yesterday afternoon we went to a baby shower for one of my co-workers at a "camp" on Lake Champlain. There was food, and cake, and a beautiful view, and a walk around the neighborhood (complete with a tour of a neighbor's camp, which was literally picture-perfect--it's being photographed for some Cottage style magazine later this month).  Next weekend K and I are planning to visit the family cottage in Connecticut, so there will be more lakeside living up ahead--I just need to make it through this week, which promises to be especially long.  Happy Monday!


  1. what dress are you wearing? looks great with the boots!

  2. I hadnt heard the best reviews of his latest flick which is a shame since I really enjoyed Midnight in Paris. I think maybe its time for him to head back to NY and shoot something here, you know come back to his roots. I've clearly given this too much thought.
