Good morning friends!
I’m feeling awfully groggy this morning which is a quick and uncanny reminder that today is Monday. *sigh* It’s even more dreadful that half the people I know have today off in honor of Columbus Day. Although what’s the one and only silver lining in all of this? No traffic 😉
I finally got my hair done, which was a relief. These roots were taking over. BUT I’m sad to say no bangs. My hair dresser/colorist/stylist whose opinion I take to heart refused to do it. She had me dying laughing with her reaction when I brought it up. Half of me is completely fine with it but my other half was excited for some sort of change. I’m not sure that I 100% understand the work that needs to be put into bangs. I struggle waking up at 7:27AM so if I had to wake up any earlier to tame bangs I don’t think I’d be the happiest person. Still partially considering it though, but TBD…
Also, you’ll see hair photos down below if you keep on reading.
Andrew and I were suppose to go up to NH for a Cuban family gathering. NH typically isn’t that big of a trek for us but it was further than we normally have to go, and lately Andrew’s SUV has been having some issues that need to be looked at so we decided to pass.
And instead, we killed two birds with one stone (not literally, its just a phrase) by going apple and pumpkin picking! YES, I finally convinced Andrew to go.
I’ve been wanting to visit this specific apple orchard/farm for quite some time, mostly because people rave about their cider donuts and uh if you know me, wherever there’s donuts you can find me there too.
Honey Pot Hill Orchards
Right off the bat, this place did not disappoint. What I specifically loved about this orchard is that there were so many things to do. Normally you go to an apple orchard, pick some apples, and that’s it- but this place had a ton of activities.
Just to name a few things:
A giant apple orchard (of course)
A pre-picked pumpkin picking area
A small animal farm (I didn’t photograph the animals but here was us against the small pony farm)
2 Hedge Mazes (this is one the one we did)
And most importantly, THE CIDER DONUTS!
Oh my lanta were these amazing! They make them there right in front of you except you’re not allowed to photograph it. I went in thinking I was only going to get 2 of them but they only had these bags of 6 which I thought, oh man that’s too many. NOPE finished all 6 of them by Sunday AM. There was actually only 1 left by Sunday morning. I’m really contemplating going back for another bag.
Food and more
There was also a food and ice cream stand. And a store with fresh apple cider, which was so yum! Caramel apples, fudge, and all sorts of apple farm goodies. And they also had a hayride that we didn’t make it on but every tractor was filled, so I’m sure it was worthwhile!
And then on our way out we frolicked some more through the orchard. Not gonna lie by this time of the day, I was sweating and on the verge of heat exhaustion. I actually might’ve had heat exhaustion; it was so muggy and hot out. I just barely made it onto the ladder but you know, obviously had to snag some photos.
And if you were wondering about the hair, all the photos above showcase it.
Two words: Lazy Bones.
But hey it was raining so completely justified. The highlight of the day was getting my nails and toes done. Lately, and surprisingly, I’ve been on a nude tone kick so I went with this color- not my nails in the photo. But I love the color.
Be There In A Prosecco
So lets see, the peak of my weekend?
