Mobbies and a Birthday Present

Yesterday we came across a contest for Maryland's outstanding blogs held by the Baltimore Sun. Some of our favorite nominees are daily food inspiration, a neighbor, a Patterson Parker, a fellow renovator, a photography favorite that we met at Patapsco Park last year, a new hilarious discovery, and a fellow dog lover.



We also discovered that Baltimore Rowhouse was nominated! Looks like we are in 7th place in the Neighborhood category right now. Voting is through October 9, and you can vote once daily in each category. We're feeling a bit competitive after coming in second on HGTV's Bang For Your Buck last month :) Vote for Baltimore Rowhouse!

On another note, Corey turned 30 on Tuesday and is now older than 42% of the population in the U.S. Last weekend, his best friend from college flew up from North Carolina with his wife to surprise Corey. We also had a big birthday bash. This weekend I am 'surprising' him with a trip to Lost River Modern. I decided to spill the beans this morning because he already was suspicious that we were going there. I have had this trip planned since April, and I'm glad the weekend is finally here.



We plan on posting about our HGTV experience soon. In the meantime, if you didn't catch us the first time around they are showing a rerun on October 13. Have a great weekend!

Please take me...I saw they have a room for kids. Currently my maturity level is that of a 10yr old.

p.s. I was in total shock when I saw that you told him that he wasn't going to Glen Burnie for the weekend.

I love your coffee table. Can I ask what the source for that is?
Thank you.

Wait, my blog that I only update monthly is one of the nominees?

I voted even though I had to 'register' with the Sun. For a fellow Row Houser? Tis nothing! Good luck!

Hey there,

I was thinking about Lost River Modern as well. I couldn't tell from the site...is there a TV and internet access? I know! It's supposed to be getaway, but we need that stuff!

Leigh said...

Just got back. Yes, there is satellite tv and wifi. No cell phone service though. It was a great time.

J2 said...

no cell? that might be a deal breaker for us...the grandparents might need to reach us in case of emergency for the kids...

or...we make it a family trip!

Ideal living space. Now I'm wondering if my living room needs remodeling, too, apart from the kitchen and bath.

So sad that people miss out on things like Lost River Modern because they're worried about cell phone service. Good heavens, what did people do before the 1990s and early 2000s when no one had a cell phone? I guess nobody ever went anywhere! Oh wait, I know, people just left their kids with people they knew they could trust to handle the situation should one of those emergencies arise.
