Best Week Ever! Vacay edition!

This week was the best week ever! We are on vacation! July 10-16, 2017

We are still not walking quite yet…

But… we do love wearing matching swan bathing suits…

And this little puddle jumper swim vest we got at Target, might be the best 20 bucks we ever spent…

Steve and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary! 

How come they don’t have Mellow Mushtoom in the northeast? Biggest mistake ever…

Steve called this a Snow White apple, it didn’t put me to sleep, but it was pretty tasty with peanut butter…

Not sure there is anything sweeter in the whole world than when the two of them play nicely together! 

Lunch outside on the water is a must when on holiday at the coast!

And…Not the best family selfie we’ve ever taken, but certainly not the worst either! 

And we are here another week!!

Also, just bought tickets to this show in Brooklyn and I’m geeking out over it! 

Will probably end up ordering this for fall!

I’m just going to sit here and squish this all day long

Have you seen this yet?! I’m dying to watch it! And two other movies on my must watch list… ONE & TWO

We just had an intense family game night playing this!

Obscure, intriguing, kick ass fanzines– with a sliding scale price tag!

And… just try and not read the Pepe the King Prawn’s twitter feed without the accent, go ‘head, just try

Best Week Ever!


This week was the Best Week Ever! July 3-July 9th, 2017!

Sailor turned ONE and we had a killer bday party for our baby girl!


Birthday fruit!


Our new toddler trampoline is definitely a hit!


The birthday girl!


Fantastic mail day…


This adorableness…


Keep up the good work Breyer’s! (#normalizeveganism)


Dash was so proud of himself for doing this puzzle! (With a little help from us, but not a ton!)


Birthday parties with toddlers 🙂


Making a cow mask- let the ‘Moo’ing ensue!



Are you watching The Nineties on CNN? So good! 

I love this bralette for layering summer wear

Without a doubt, one of the coolest small makers I’ve seen- I’m obsessed, I want everything.

Especially these.

Cute Organization! (Do you do any of these already? I’m personally mood board obsessed.

LOVE this color guide to Palm Springs & Joshua Tree

This transformation!  And the scarf wall hanging! 

Counting down the days!! 

And some eye candy- these photos!








Best Week Ever!

Ahhh! This week was the Best Week Ever! June 26th- July 2nd, 2017!


This was really the start of our summer! We played a lot on the playground…


And took some wagon rides- Sailor was obsessed, Dash was just straight chillin’!



I found these at Trader Joe’s! They are really good- basically like lychee nuts- def. worth a try if you come upon them! (tip: they are easy to peel, but there is a pit!)


It was this girl’s first time in a pool! (She loved it! Phew!) And our first time this summer soaking up the sun and cooling off.


Dash was in major “helper mode” this week- he wanted to help carry everything and even move furniture! (Now every time we walk past this chest in our hallway, he points to it and says, “I moved that!” – of course with Daddy and Papa’s help!)


And…you can never have too much fun in a clothing rack…



The most elaborate hedges and topiaries! Amazing!

The museum for virtually unknown artists.

For the first time ever, a vegan chef was awarded this prestigious French award! 

and… speaking of, yay! 

I just bought this kimono, dawg.

This Pinterest Search is everything.


Yes, these turtles are totally high fiving brah! 



Best Week Ever!

This week was the best week ever! June 19th-25th, 2017!

I made the most delicious tofu scramble- with sweet potatoes and mushrooms 🍄

We met this dog (which Dash insisted was Conan- our dog) at the mall 🐶

Sailor is officially standing on her own, all.the.time. (It’s awesome!!)

Yes, these two are standing in a dollhouse. 

Dash discovered peanut butter toast!

My friend Heather and I made these!

And, the summer solstice actually brought summer weather with it!


I’m definitely buying these cute snack boxes/trays for the kiddos

14 of the dreamiest places to sleep over in Canada 🇨🇦 

The world’s most beautiful libraries! (Oh em gee!)  

Love these pillows!

Not that I’m wishing 2017 away, but aren’t these flutes perfect for New Year’s?!

Possibly the best museum gift shop ever.

So much this! 


Did you know this is Steve Harvey’s first name? 


Best Week Ever!


This week was the best week ever! June 12th-18th 2017

It was Father’s Day! And we had a Father’s Day BBQ at our house with my family and Steve’s folks- we spent a lot of time playing and getting our feet dirty! (A sure sign of summer!)

Dirty little feet!

Dash ate avocado toast for the first time! (And anytime this crazy picky eater eats something new, it’s something to celebrate!)


Sailor is so close to walking, we can all taste it! (And it’s gonna be trouble!)


We worked on shopping for our summer wardrobes… and ran errands


Check out this sassy look!
The traffic in this aisle is insane!

We got a new car!! I am officially a Mom that drives a minivan, and I LOVE IT! (This car is so spacious, Dash can actually run around it! Ha! (when the car is parked- obviously!)


We are all very excited about our new van!

We got lots of shoulder rides…


And snuggled, a lot. This was the best week ever 🙂



The evolution of women’s sizes

We just bought this for Dash for the summer and I’m stoked for him to see it- once we put it together!

After so much research, I decided to buy this mid year planner for my resolution to really keep a planner this time…

This was part of Steve’s Father’s Day gift and I can’t wait to try some of these recipes!

I love this blog and one of her features is about what she feeds her vegan daughter- some great ideas!

a breakdown of what to focus on to clean the (part that your guests will see) house in 45 minutes or less to prep for a dinner party



Best Week Ever!

This was (kinda) the best week ever! June 5th-June 11th, 2017


I’m still recovering from the shitty week we had last week, and this one, truth be told, wasn’t a ton better…but we’re trying! Here are some snapshots of this week which consisted of trying to rid myself of some bad mojo and bring back some positive vibes.

I got my haircut to try something new and fresh. Ever since I had my hair bleached out and dyed red (which it obviously isn’t anymore…) my hair has been totally dry, unmanageable and just plain aw-ful. So, time to chop it off.


I tried to sweat out that bad mojo as much as possible, and my muscles are feeling it tonight!


I had more than 1 glass of chardonnay 🙂


I tried to channel my energy into getting something done! This patio (pictured below) is now free of weeds!


Steve and I went out for a date night for Indian! Too good.


And I remembered how lucky I am to have these two monkeys…


Plus, here is the look of pure determination.



This shirt is a serious MUST!

An energy cleansing kit.

A who’s who on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Loney Hearts Club Band

Get a surfer body.

Why don’t they make wood paneled cars anymore? I’m in love!

A cool way to send a photo postcard to anyone, fast!

Hope you had the best week ever!


(Not really the) Best Week Ever!

This week was (not really the) best week ever…May 29th- June 4th, 2017


Not gonna lie, this was a tough week. I lost a really important flash drive, we had to bring Dash to the E.R. (insert incredibly sad, nervous, scared, anoxious emoji here), I got VERY little sleep, and I have pink eye. But in the spirit of riding a silver lining and looking forward to the start of a better week tomorrow- here’s some of the good stuff that happened 🙂

Sailor loves tamales!


I went on a beautiful hike one day after the rain and saw this very cool sunken garden.


Finding beauty in the mundane (chopping celery)


This cartoon came into my life…


Steve and I spent a night out- in a hotel!


I got to debut this clutch and these shoes…


…And we thought we had lost Foofa- but we didn’t!



Why you should write more letters guys!

Hiking the entire A.T. !

If you’re not up for the whole Appalachian Trail, try one of these spots!

Cabin Love

I need this shirt.

Dreaming of LA

Steve had these for the first time and he dubbed them Nature’s candy.

I think these are nature’s candy!


Flaunt your love.





Best Week Ever!

This week was the best week ever! May 22-28, 2017! I got a new phone, had pizza for dinner twice, drank way too much Coke zero, and most importantly, my parents came back up north for the summer!


This kid learned how to shuck corn.


This girl is so close to walking she can taste it! (but please don’t start climbing stairs yet!)

And speaking of taste… she’s still the BEST eater around!


This kid can’t get enough of slides and playgrounds…


This show is back and I’m so excited (tongue in cheek excited, but still excited to watch ha!) (Food Network Star)

And we are all so happy to see Nana and Papa again!

Best Week Ever!

This was the BEST WEEK EVER! May 15th-21st, 2017

Started the week off at barre with my new favorite tote and the best slip on’s. 


You can tell a successful Whole Foods trip when you bring home Miyoko’s fresh mozz. (for Caprese salad) and fiddleheads.



Went to an actual brick and mortar bookstore and drooled over every vegan cookbook… I ended up getting this one! 


We had a big breakthrough with Dash’s eating! Thank you graham crackers!


First farmer’s market of the season!


We spent Friday night having a pizza party at the beach (Sailor’s first time seeing the ocean!)


And Sunday brought us rolling around in the ballpit, enjoying plantain chips on the patio, and re-watching episodes of Top Chef.


Plus this…

What in the …whaaaaa? 

Please can I have one? Please!

Quintessential New England.

The next Marfa?

And if I go to Todos Santos, this is where you can find me…

YES! So much this!


Best Week Ever!

This week was the best week ever! May 8th-May 14th, 2017

We celebrated Mama’s Day & Steve’s 40th birthday with family!



I got to use my new yoga mat at barre class this week!


Got to spend a lot of quality time with my favorites!




We ate dinner at one of our favorite places- all vegan upscale cuisine.


I made (and devoured) my first vegan s’more of the season! (on the beach!)


And… this picture encapsulates being a Mama of 2 littles!



Martha Stewart & Snoop Dogg have a potluck dinner party tv show! – this is them making brownies!

I’m totally making this (freaking awesome) toast.

How it feels to be getting older– I love that young guys in movies are no longer love interests, I see them as my sons! ha!

This avocado dress!

And, in honor of Mama’s Day, the first time you really appreciate your own parents– and God, how much I appreciate my own parents, now that I have my own children, blows my mind.
