weekend getaway to Maryland

We spent the weekend driving up to Maryland and visiting friends, one of our to do’s on our summer bucket list. We spent most the trip at their new home and letting the kids play, but we were able to hit a couple of our favorite spots from when Mike and I lived there for a few years. One of our must-go-to spots is Beef ’n Buns n’ Paradise in Frederick. It’s one of the quirkiest little places we’ve stumbled upon since being married and it’s one of our favorites. We always make a trip because we just can’t go to Maryland without grabbing some of their grub and homemade malts. We’ve never had a bad meal and some of our favorites are their Maryland crap soup, brisket sandwich and the grouper. When we lived up there the owner always knew we would order a homemade malt and she is one of the sweetest people we’ve come across int he area. At a certain point she didn’t even have to ask us, she knew we would always ask for extra malted milk. 
Our friends also took us to a few model homes in the area. This is also another favorite thing we like to do. We love walking through for design inspiration. I was particularly fond of this entryway. I love light, white and bright, but I was totally digging these dark navy walls, pop of white trim and the gray floors. Unfortunately, this combination would not work in our current house because our light comes in  from the wrong side. 
This house we walked through was huge and Mike and I loved all the board and batten detail throughout each room and much of it was done with 1x4 inch boards. There was so much character and we took dozens of pictures to use for more character building in our home.
