this post is a bit of a hodge podge of items but that is how this last week has been. this has been week 2 of spring break and it's been filled with a little bit of everything- some cleaning and purging (aka nesting), a trip to the Biltmore, and finishing some things for baby girl and finding some things for baby girl. i even did a little work this morning.
we visited the Biltmore on wednesday of this week. since it is still the "off season" for Biltmore, we were able to get discount tickets and we used jay's mission hospital discount. they have the audio headsets free until the end of the month, so aside from our lunch, we got almost a 2 for 1 deal on tickets and our visit. we have been watching Downton Abbey on masterpiece classics (on PBS) and wanted to learn a little bit more about the history of the Biltmore house now that we've seen DA because we can picture the working nature of the home a little bit better. it was a beautiful day. the only thing that would have been better would have been if the gardens were in bloom. i took a few pictures after we had been through the house and eaten our lunch.
after going through some of the boxes, i found a few things that our baby girl can use. one of them is my first teddy bear. i have a picture of me with my dad (somewhere) on my first Christmas when i got the bear and the bear is still in pretty good shape- "gently loved." so the bear got a "bath" and some stitches to one of his armpits and now he's ready to go!
