Friday Favorites: New Hampshire Weekend

 We had a fabulous week that just seemed to fly right by.  In fact it was 8:20 on Thursday night before I even realized that the next morning was Friday and I had no post written!  I thought I still had another day in there to get things done.  


I got not one but two bouquets of roses on Friday! One of our local associations sells them for fundraisers and my husband's uncle always buys the women of the family an arrangement but this time my husband bought one too.  They looked and smelled so good!









My husband and I headed up to Loom Mountain in New Hampshire Friday night.  We arrived late and while the hotel was not my favorite the hiking views sure were! We went on two really great hikes; one on Saturday and one on Sunday.










Alec finished up his sophomore math credit (honors geometry) already with a 97 average for the year!  They've moved him onto next year's Algebra 2 work. It's so funny since he thinks of math as one of his harder subjects. I'm so proud of how well he's doing in school.  
I worked really hard for two days straight and got the bathroom repainted and put back together.  I think I'd still like to paint our light fixtures and repaint our trim work so the white is a bit fresher but I am loving this color! Such a fun change from the tan.  (We still need to replace the tub faucet and I'm debating about spray painting the light fixtures black but not right now).






Evan and I went on a lovely hike on Thursday but I didn't take any photos!  We hiked through the Thompson Dam and the weather was just perfect.
We've had some beautiful sun rises this week!

    1. It really is a wonderful makeover! We had a few holes in the walls from repairing some plumbing recently so it was a good time to change up the color scheme.

    1. We were thrilled to find time before his new job starts since we really don't know when he'll be able to time off next.

  14. Oh those New Hampshire photos are gorgeous, but I think the sunrise pictures are even better! I love that you can't even tell where the lake ends and the sky begins. How awesome that y'all get to see that view right from your own home.

    1. I love those days when the lake is so calm that everything is reflected perfectly.

  15. So many beautiful pics.

    I hate when I think I posted and then realize it didn't happen.

    1. I've been doing that so often lately! I used to blog a good week ahead but have been falling behind more and more lately... just not motivated to blog I guess (because we aren't any busier than usual).
