BEST WEEK EVER! · summer vibes · Travel

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

Sailor’s first birthday!

We threw Sailor her first birthday party today!! I can’t believe my baby is one already! She started saying the word ‘up’ and took a couple of steps on her own! I think she’s gonna be walking and talking more and more- and we can’t wait! Here’s some quick pics from our fun today! 

Yes, I do love vegan chocolate cupcakes.

The first time I’ve seen Dash dig into a cupcake!

We did a unicorn and rainbow theme- Which was almost too fun and adorable! 

My rainbow fruit platter was a major hit.

A ball pit is always a good idea!

I love my new puppy!

Party = success! Thanks for celebrating our special day!

Getting ready for Summer Vacation!


Are you going away on vacation this summer? We leave for South Carolina in a week and I’m equal parts excited and overwhelmed! The idea of packing for a family of four- yes, I will probably micromanage my husband’s luggage as well, and flying with 2 little ones- ages one and two, is definitely a little bananas. (Especially since we also have Sailor’s first birthday party on Saturday and I have a to- do list a mile long before leave.. eeek)

We will be heading down to Hilton Head for two weeks with my parents- which will definitely be a huge help, AND Steve and I are going to escape to Charleston, SC for a night to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary! This is where we just booked our night away! (I’m dying!)

So, I’ve basically been reading all about tips to travel with kids, since we’ve never flown with them before. And also reading up on all the best of Charleston. (I grew up vacationing in Hilton Head, so I’m pretty prepped for that area already, and besides, we’re all just really excited about the pool and straight chillin..)

Here’s a round-up of some of the tips I’ve been scouting:

Traveling with kiddos!

and of course, our getaway!

Happy 4th of July! 

Happy 4th of July! I hope you got to spend some time today with your family, friends and/or people you love! (Whether you were celebrating in America or not!) 

One of my fav things to eat on the fourth, or really all summer long is corn on the cob! 

How do you eat your corn? I eat mine round and round! Apparently, how you eat your corn says something about your personality- if you eat your corn round and round, you tend to be more artsy and creative, the right brained people- if you eat  your corn left to right, like a typewriter, you are an orderly organized person! How interesting, right?! (My mom and I eat in the round and Steve and my Dad eat left to right!) 

Happy Birthday America!

I’m beyond stoked that summer is just around the corner. I can already feel the warm sun on my back, the sand in my toes, the waves washing over me. It’s only going to be mid-70’s today, so I’m going to dream about surf style for my endless summer of 2017.
