Cheverly Easter Egg Hunt

And this is the Cheverly Easter Egg Hunt with the Cheverly Bunny all dressed up in his/her hot pink vest. The kids love it. Age appropriate sections are roped off by the Community Center and Barbara (who is in charge of all the recreation events) gets on her megaphone to tell the kids where to…

Family Concert and Other Spring Break Events

The message from CPRC is below. Make sure to sign up ASAP. Every year, the Cheverly Parent Resource Center (CPRC) plans…

Home Decorating On A Budget

So… Welcome to my ever changing (still in process) living room. I HATE buying anything full price. It’s a rare occasion that I will allow myself to purchase something new and/or expensive. Why? Because we live next door to one of the most fabulous thrift stores ever. In fact, almost all the clothes/toys I purchase…

The Hot Pink Cheverly Easter Bunny

Our hot pink vest wearing Cheverly Easter Bunny will arrive at 11:00 am on Saturday April 4th at Town Hall! (someone needs to tell me how long this bunny has been visiting Cheverly!!) Will be sharing more about our event next week but for now I wanted to make sure you save the date. More…

Looking for a House Cleaner?

In today’s post I want to give a shout out to my house cleaner, Irma. Since living in Cheverly, I’ve had 3 different house cleaners. By far, Irma has been the best. She gets on her hands and knees to scrub my kitchen floor and I always love the way the house looks when I…

Are You Prepared?

I’m so grateful for Cheverly CERT. What a great organization/resource they are for our community. Joel Thomas, the founder of Cheverly CERT has a message for us as we enter the spring season. On a personal note, I work at the Capitol and my children are home with our nanny. It took us a while,…

Real Estate Update

Oh my goodness. I wrote too soon. Last week there was nothing on the market and over the weekend we had about 6 new homes listed in Cheverly. I’m happy to say that in just 3 short days, 2 are already pending! What does this mean? If you have a house with a really cool…

Shop Local: Nails!

You might not understand men, (or maybe you do) that most women are obsessed with their nails. I love pedicures and I actually have one scheduled for this weekend. Part of the reason I’m blogging is to support local businesses, especially within our town. Did you know that we not only have a massage therapist,…

Real Estate Update

All pending. All of these homes are pending. If you, like me, are crazy about real estate you have probably noticed that there are barely any homes for sale  in Cheverly. In fact, I’ve been corresponding with a few of my readers who are interested in buying and they are just waiting for a house to…

Big Week

(Last weekend at the PG Hospital hills trying to sled…but unable because the snow was too soft) Part of saying goodbye to winter is welcoming St. Patrick’s Day and the opening of baseball season. I just couldn’t be more excited to welcome in spring. I’ve been dreaming of the Cheverly Pool for months now–and the…

Let’s Talk Coffee

Let’s talk coffee. I’m not a coffee expert by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I gave it up when I was pregnant with my first son and broke my addiction. But I journal and so I love the coffee shop atmosphere. Cheverly, how I love you, but you fail me in one area—coffee…

A Few of My Favorite Things: La Fondita

Ok, I know from the picture above that the place looks strange. I would’ve passed it by a thousand times without giving it a second glance unless I read this article by the Washington Post. And boy oh boy I’m glad I did. Obsessed would be an understatement. I’ve been to La Fondita twice in the…
