BACK TO HOME + SCHOOL!

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Home sweet home! We got back from Mexico a few nights ago and it feels crazy good to be home again. We're jumping right back into life and routines. Starting with the first day of school!


MEXICO, HERE WE COME!

Tuesday, August 8, 2017


We're off to Mexico today! I am super nervous but excited. The kids are going to love the adventure. Especially Nico. He's just so into new places and exploring and he seems to fit himself into any place that he's in. And Lia can't wait to spend the week with her cousins. 

So, here's to new experiences, a new country, family time, and one last hurrah before Lia starts second grade! 

SEAS THE DAY (OR THE WEEKEND!)

Monday, August 7, 2017

We whisked the kids away last weekend for a little trip for just the four of us! We weren't really sure where we wanted to go but we wanted something close enough to make a weekend trip worth it and far away enough that it felt like a vacation to the kids. And, it had to be somewhere we had never been before.

We landed on Amelia Island in Florida and you guys, it did not disappoint. We made the 2 1/2 hour drive after M got home from work on Friday and got into town in time for a late night dinner at the local hotspot, The Salty Pelican, and a stroll around the most charming downtown street.


AROUND HERE

Sunday, August 6, 2017

Life is speeding by, you guys. I blinked and summer happened! We've been soaking up all the last moments of this summer that we're going to get. We're all having mixed feelings about what's to come. 

We leave for Mexico in a few days and that's the very last hurrah of summer for us. School starts right after we get back and we're all going to be diving back into our usual schedules. Part of me is going to miss having my girl home every day with me but the other part of me is really craving a routine and a schedule and the feeling of getting back to business as usual. A change is looming ahead and I can feel it in my soul.


FAMILY TIME

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

We had a house guest last week! Can I just say how nice it was to have a pretty guest room? It's crazy what a coat of paint can do to a space. But, back to our house guest. M's littlest sister, who isn't little at all, came to visit us for a while. 

The kids were over the moon to have some one-on-one time with their aunt. She basically spoiled them with love and we did our best to play tourist guide for her!


GUEST ROOM MAKEOVER

Monday, July 10, 2017

The guest bedroom has been a mess for weeks. It's become a catch-all room with everything going on in the house. Once we had the carpet ripped up and replaced with hardwoods, we put the rest of the house together and just overlooked this room.

Manny's sister decided to fly in to visit this week so we had one weekend to get it in guest-ready shape! And, I'm always pretty excited to tackle weekend projects in the form of room make-overs!



THE FOURTH \\ 2017

Friday, July 7, 2017

I hope you guys enjoyed your holiday!

We're usually away in North Carolina or New York for the fourth so it was fun to just stay home and hang out together. 

It's been HOT. The heat is really kicking in this week, so we decided the pool was the place to be. We spent most of the day at the pool. The kids were just happy to dive in and splash around and snack on watermelon. Then, we headed home to throw together dinner. The kids were wiped from the pool and ended up napping. It was like their very own independence day gift to us, ha!
