Trick or Treat Weekend

Cheverly does not disappoint on Halloween. My husband was making fun of me last night and how much I’m obsessed with the Halloween Parade. It’s true, I can’t help it. I would’ve loved a Halloween Parade when I was little. Not only do we have Trick or Treating tonight from 6-8pm (and don’t forget pictures…

This Weekend’s Open House

This is a bittersweet post for me. I’m losing one of my favorite Cheverly families. I’m losing a very dear friend. The family that is selling this home are moving for wonderful reasons but I secretly hope they move back. I will miss them dearly. Now, on to my post. They are selling this beauty-…

Pumpkin Carving and Consignment Shopping Links

    Meet my neighbors, Deepak, Leighann, and Benjamin. They are the type of people you want living next door to you. Friendly, giving, fun and laid back! They moved to Cheverly 11 months ago and we attend the same church. Yesterday I counted on Deepak and Abel Olivo to help me with unload a…

Halloween Parade

The pictures above were taken at the 2012 and 2013 Halloween Parades- my son always running behind the crowd both years 🙂 This is going to sound strange, but the Halloween Parade is one of the highlights of my year. It’s such a rush for the kids- the adults shut down a couple streets so…

A Few of My Favorite Things: Antiquing In Old Town Bowie

Calling all Cheverly antiquers and thrifters, have I got the place for you! Today I discovered somewhere you will probably find me once a month, The Shops of Historic Old Bowie. Granted, this is not Kensington, MD with all the cool cafes, but if I can find a better, cheaper deal, it’s fine by me….

Weekend Update

I continue to be amazed by how many activities our town hosts every weekend. My schedule could be completely booked with Cheverly related events and meetings. Being a Christian, I love that my neighbors, of all faiths and backgrounds, have a desire to serve one another. It’s a beautiful thing when you receive an email…

Meet Your Neighbors: Patrick Kilpatrick, Teresa Castracane, Finn and Hal

I’m so excited to share this post with you. I met Teresa and Patrick a few months ago and was immediately fascinated with their stories. They are both actors and Teresa runs a photography business out of her home here in Cheverly. Every Halloween Teresa welcomes your children into her home for free pictures!  I plan…

Real Estate Update

I took a walk around the neighborhood yesterday with my kids and was amazed (again) by all of the different homes in Cheverly. Every house has its own shape, its own look. Every single home is unique. I was surprised to see this beautiful house at 3303 Cheverly Ave for sale. (a porch, garage, driveway…)…

Pumpkin Love

Spring and fall are my favorite seasons. At the start of every fall, I usually head to my mom’s near Winchester, VA where there is a ton of orchards. We also head to the mountains for various fall festivals–but this year and last, we have made going to Montpelier Farms a family tradition. The best…

Halloween Party and Movie

Goodness, over the last few weeks my time has been spent doing all Cheverly activities. We went to see DC’s #1 children’s entertainer, The Great Zucchini on Monday at Town Hall, on Tuesday night we walked to soccer practice, the kids are headed to a pumpkin patch and hayride with the CPRC group tomorrow, on Saturday we…

Meet Your Neighbor: Megan Daly

Meet Megan! Megan has been a friend of mine in the Senate for a number of years and she is as much fun as she looks in this picture! I wanted to highlight Megan for a “Meet Your Neighbor” post because she is a single lady living in town and knows almost everyone. She knows…

DIY Shoots In Cheverly

Have you seen any camera crews in town?! Rumor has it that DIY Network has been filming in Cheverly. Be on the lookout for Cheverly homes and parks to make an appearance in the “I Want That” episodes in Spring 2015.
