Grenada, March for Babies and a Gala

Hello! Hello!

What a weekend!  The Hubs and I were actually in Grenada last week and just got back late Thursday night.  I shared a few pictures on Instagram over the weekend, if you are interested.

It was such a gorgeous island.  We had a lot of fun and I can’t wait to share more from our trip soon.

First up will be a Caribbean themed Fashion Friday this week, but here’s a sneak peak at the beaches first.  Ahhhhh…. take me back.

We came back to a very busy weekend in Asheville.  Friday night was the Girls and Boys Club 25th Anniversary Gala.

We went with our friends Marilyn, Michael, Chris and Grant.

After a late night, we woke up early Saturday morning for the March for Babies.

This year’s walk was a little less eventful for me since I wasn’t the Chair.  I did the warm-up for the crowd, and then was able to enjoy the walk.

After the walk, the Hubs and I went to the Herb Festival to pick up our garden stuff for the year.

We basically collapsed Saturday night and spent Sunday working on planting and opening the deck and outside areas of our house for spring.

It’s always nice to get it all cleaned up! I’m planning on sharing more from my garden soon including some garden to table recipes!

What a weekend!  Luckily this week is going to be pretty calm.  I’m looking forward to being back home and settling back into my little routine.

Have a lovely day everyone.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Come back tomorrow for a 5 ingredient strawberry salsa.

I’m linking up with Marvelous Monday.

Your turn!

How was your weekend?

    Oh my, the pictures of Grenada are stunning! I need to go there. And also, I can’t wait to participate in a March of Dimes event with you.

    Gardening is my favorite part of spring! I can’t wait to see pictures of your garden. That herb sale looks AMAZING!

    I have worked on the garden for the last couple of weekends- rearranging and planting and cleaning out the planter box. I will be doing some more planting this weekend and hope I don’t scorch everything! AHHHHH, a beach vacation right now sounds great! 🙂

    I can’t wait to hear about Grenada! I’ve only been there once for a day as a cruise stop.

    I just went on a mini imaginary beach vacation in my head thanks to your photos!
    Wow, beautiful I need some feet in warm sand! So jealous! But happy you had a great time!
    It’s been pretty yucky rainy snowy weather the past few weeks here, but I saw on the news we might hit 80 later this week so I will have to spend a few minutes in the sun and soak up some rays and pretend I am on a beach somewhere, LOL

    • JulieWunder May 9, 2016 at 8:56 am - Reply

      Yes! I’ll make a tropical drink and just pretend sometimes too.
      Hope it was warmer this past weekend.

    Beautiful pics of the island. I have never been there but looks gorgeous. We had March of dimes here as well this wkend. I did not attend but passed many on the boardwalk walking it during my run. Great cause!

    That water!!!
    We were at the beach last week (Gulf of Mexico) and while it was beautiful and just what the doctor ordered, the murky water was nothing like that!

      I know! There is nothing like the Caribbean for those clear waters.

    Your trip looks amazing! I’ve never been to Spain yet but hopefully can get there soon!

    I wish there was a herb festival in my area. I’m obsessed with getting fresh herbs in our garden this year. They make food taste so much better!

    • JulieWunder May 9, 2016 at 8:48 am - Reply

      They do! I look forward to having them every summer.

    I love that you participated in the Walk for Life. What a precious gift life is, and this was such a good reminder! It looks like you had a wonderful trip. I hope you are well rested. <3

    Grenada looks absolutely beautiful! My in laws were just there and loved it- unfortunately, I am allergic to the sun so I will only be able to enjoy it via photos 🙂

    • JulieWunder May 9, 2016 at 8:46 am - Reply

      I hope they had fun too. We hunkered under umbrellas because we burn so easy 🙂

  15. Oh, I so wish that we could have a real garden! We have the room but we’re surrounded by tall trees that while nice becuase of the shade, shade the yard too much for a garden. 🙁 Our town does offer cheap, paid gardening plots you can rent for the season, so I’m hoping next year I can rent one and have alltheproduce, once the boys are a little older!

      Oh bummer! I watched out yard for a year when we got our house and picked the one spot we get sun for most of the day. We are pretty shaded too– our yard even blooms a week later than the rest of town!

    looks like a lot of fun…mine was interesting, we were busy cleaning the house….and I had a headache and was exhausted all weekend…but Caleb did have a great fifth birthday party Sunday

  17. I remember when you chaired that event last year! I need to get moving on some planting. I am so not a green thumb at all!

    • JulieWunder May 9, 2016 at 8:43 am - Reply

      You’ll have to find some hearty, drought tolerant plants then 🙂

  18. Looks like a great weekend! I’m ready to start planting and getting my deck ready too, but Mama Nature did not cooperate this weekend with 40s and rain! Seriously? What a way to come back from California….

      Oh no! That is the worst. Hope it was warmer this past weekend for you.
