Street Fair & POH Round II

I've got the second half of our weekend recap for you today -- I had so many pictures from the weekend, so our weekend overview is being split into two posts. You may read the post recapping the first half of our weekend here.


On Saturday morning, I headed out for a walk before circling back at our house to meet my sister and her family to head out to a street fair / festival.


Our first stop was a book sale -- Andrew (my brother-in-law), and I played with the girls in the kids' section while my sister picked up a handful of children's books to take home with them.


After leaving the book sale, Andy met up with us and we browsed through all of the booths and checked out the food trucks! 


I couldn't resist ordering one of these caramel apple sundaes! Caramel apples are easily one of my favorite treats! 


My sister visited the cookie dough truck and got a cup of classic chocolate chip cookie dough!  


There were also a bunch of old cars to check out! It was so funny to see how simple the dashboards were back then -- literally just a few buttons! 


After the street fair, we headed home and I would up taking a two-hour nap, which felt amazing! We hung out at home the rest of the evening -- it was overcast / stormy for most of the day so an evening in felt like the perfect agenda.

One of Andy's coworkers (whom I met when we went to a Wild game with her and her husband last fall) knows that I'm obsessed with true crime books / podcasts, so she recommended The Confession Tapes. I watched a couple of episodes that evening and it really reminded me a lot of the CaseFile podcast, which I'm obsessed with! I'd recommend this show if this is an interest of yours! 


On Sunday, I went for a long walk in the morning before heading back to the house to get ready for Parade of Homes round two! Click here for a recap of last weekend's POH.


We headed to a few different cities in the area to check out the model homes!


Each time we tour these homes, it has me itching to move! We both loved the black trimmed windows that so many of these homes had -- it looked so sharp! 


I loved all of these cute black and white houses! This one featured a kitchen window that opened up into a serving area on the back deck -- it was so unique! 


This house above featured lots of shiplapped walls -- which I like in general, but I don't know if I'd love them in my house or not.


Here we are grabbing a quick selfie in one of the master bathrooms! I loved all of the white and bright bathrooms that we saw! 


This house was definitely the fanciest one of the day -- that was a saltwater pool in the photo above! The basement was set up perfectly for entertaining with a full bar, indoor sport court, rock climbing wall, and a movie theatre.


When I was little, my best friend Abby had a window seat in her bedroom and I was always so jealous! How fun would it be to sit and read in front of this pretty window?
