Life and Style from a Georgia girl in the the Philly Suburbs

Juicy Tidbits (A Life Update)

How is it already Labor Day Weekend?! This year is flying by. Luckily, my favorite season is right around the corner. This past weekend, we spent time with friends, said goodbye to summer, and started planning a new chapter in life.

We Bought a Townhouse!

It’s official: Harry and I will be homeowners in February 2017!!

I mentioned a couple weeks back that we were sort of house-hunting. Well, we found the perfect place. It meets all of our requirements:

  1. at least 3 bedrooms – yes! One of them will be my “office”!
  2. at least 2 full bathrooms – it has 2 full baths, and 1 half bath!
  3. basement – yes, its finished! And it’s a walkout basement.
  4. central air – yes!
  5. good location – yes! It’s our first choice for location: Malvern, PA!

Our apartment lease ends in March 2017, so timing is great. This week we are going to a showroom to pick out flooring, cabinets, tile, and countertops!

Be on the look out for lots of home building/decor posts over the next few months.

Labor Day Weekend

Our good friends  – Angela and Roy – came down from Massachusetts to spend the weekend with us. Friday night we went to Plaza Azteca for Mexican. And margaritas, obviously.

Saturday we went to Longwood Gardens for their Nightscape light show. It’s awesome. The lightshow takes place in different locations within the park. Each location has its own theme and music. Victory Brewing also has a beer garden pop-up, so we enjoyed some limited edition beers!

Harry and I took Angela and Roy to see our new house – aka our plot of land – on Sunday! We kept it a secret until we could take them to the location and walk around the model homes. We also went to Teca for dinner – a favorite for sure.

Monday was spent cleaning, meal prepping, and preparing for the week ahead! How was your LDW?



  • Congrats!!! We’ll be closer!! Love Malvern.

      Really?! Looks like we need to do dinner! What are your favorite restaurants around there? I love Classic Diner and Nectar.

  • Congratulations on buying a house! I can’t wait till the day I get to start hunting!

      Thank you! It’s an exciting process! I’ll be posting more blog posts about before/after and decor tips once we move in 🙂
