First we biked up hills.
Then down hills.
It was exhausting. And hotter out today!
Got stopped by trains. Small town life!
Then we toured the GYM!
Which has an infinity pool on the roof
And was also SUPER expensive. Not sure if I’m going to join!!
Then we went to Whole Foods – to test the waters!! I drooled on everything…
Clearly Jenna had beat me to the store..SOLD OUT of Carrot Cake Larabars!
Then we met Miss Bella Eats for lunch!! She’s the best – and takes AMAZING food photos!!
She took us to Blue Ridge Country Store on the downmall – a charming little old fashioned store with a Whole Foods worthy salad bar!!!
I built this masterpiece
And drank this tea, honestly
And for dessert, we ate Andrea’s blackberries picked from the bush just hours before. So fresh, juice and still warm from the sun.
Went to a house appointment ….saved the best for last
We stopped into Arch’s for GOOEY BROWNIE!! Grasshopper (minty) + Chocolate Cake Moo Cow Lite ice cream swirl (I don’t even know what that means except it’s light in calories and fat) with gooey brownie batter like topping. Nothing other than amazingness. We debated our housing options.
Then we verbally signed a lease on our dream cottage!!
Just check out this porch:
A Craftsman Bungalow (which I have always DREAMED of living in!) with hardwood floors, beadboard, beautiful paint colors, a killer front porch (rocking chairs included!), an awesome deck with fenced in yard and a vegetable garden!! A cute interior. 3 small bedrooms, 1.25 baths (my big sacrifice). It’s not as close to downtown as I would have wanted (2.5 miles) but it’s totally bikable (we biked it 4 times!) and in a really nice, cute charming neighborhood dotted with bungalows. It’s also lacking closet space big time, but has tons of storage in a nice basement and one car garage. Its charm and yard won us over! Moving in July 26 or 27!!
More later! Off to celebrate.
