Before and After: Staircase Makeover

Huge huge thanks to one of Cheverly’s newest residents, Brittany Pfister for writing this post.  I met Brittany and her husband last weekend at the American Legion. They are a ton of fun and have really great taste in decor. Here you go! Last year, my husband & I stumbled upon Cheverly by what seems…

Before and After: My Walk-through Room

This is my second home in Cheverly. I fell in love with it for a number of reasons–the large open space, the two sets of stairs, the tall ceilings… Boy oh boy, it was a ton of work. My husband thought I was crazy when we first looked at it but I was thrilled about…

Truck Touch 2016: Support Our Youngest

And what are your neighbors meeting about at 8:00pm on a Tuesday evening? (in a preschool classroom of all places?) I’m so glad you asked. Your neighbors have children in Cheverly Weekday Nursery, a local preschool option that meets at the Cheverly United Methodist Church. The space is absolutely beautiful and is completely transformed from its…

Spaghetti Dinner, St. Abrose Catholic Church

Ok, I had the best night on Friday. I went to the wine and cheese fundraiser at the American Legion. Did you miss it? Well, you missed out. I laughed hard with a number of friends. I needed to laugh after spending the last week renovating my home and trying to do all my other mother…

Let’s Talk School: Preschool Options

The question I get asked the most when people email me about Cheverly is, “What about the schools?” Parents want to know that if they move to the area, their little ones will have some good options available. I’m proud to say that there are a couple great options in our neighborhood: Cheverly Weekday Nursery and…

Making A Difference: Gladys Noon Spellman PTA

Doesn’t it feel good to make a difference? Especially one that will be positive for your community? I have to give a huge shout out to the PTA at Gladys Noon Spellman, our local elementary school. My dear friend, Chase O’Brien is the President this year and is truly making a difference. A week or…

Real Estate: Fixer Upper with a Pool!

I thought I’d do a little comparing again today. Brookland (because it’s so close and still transitioning) vs Cheverly: Here’s what is on the market right now in Cheverly. This run down house on Laurel Ave (which is a great street, btw) is going for 254K. Think about how much 100K could do for this…

Cheverly Market Wine Tasting and Art Benefit

I so look forward to our Cheverly Market in the summertime. Nothing could be better for a mom with two boys (who need to get out of the house and run off their energy) then walking to Town Hall to grab some fresh fruits and veggies. I believe this is the first year that the…

New Home on the Market

Check out this fun house for 385K. I love certain aspects of it, and while it needs some TLC in the basement and on the floors, it wouldn’t take much to spruce it up! Nice deck and hot tub outside with lots of light. It will surely go quick so spread the word.

It’s Girl Scout Cookie Time!

Growing up I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout. We didn’t have the internet so I went door to door and I also set up a stand at the local grocery store. My mom was a troop leader and one of my favorite movies was Troop Beverly Hills! Are there any other fans out…

CrossFit Hyattsville

Huge thank you to Jennifer Butler who attended CrossFit Hyattsville and wrote up a post. If you would like to write a guest post, please email it to: ichoosecheverly@gmail.com It seems like every week a new fantastic restaurant or shop is popping up within a few minutes’ drive of Cheverly – making my home-sweet-home even…

Why We Choose Cheverly: 40 Years and Counting

A huge thank you to all of you who told me Why You Choose Cheverly! They were so much fun to read and I hope to send the others out soon. My winner is Terry and Sue Horning! Congratulations. I will have to deliver the Cheverly Map photo to your home. Here is their story: 40…
