Embroidery & Pinstripes

Happy Friday funky party people! So lately I’ve been totally obsessed with dresses, especially for the summer. They’re easy to throw on, and I can wear spanx under them to keep my legs from chaffing which has SAVED my life since we’ve been in NYC. It’s so hot this week, and we’ve been walking a […]

48 hours in Orlando, Florida

There are TONS of things to do in Orlando besides the several amusements parks that seemingly define the Orlando area itself.

It’s not crowded in Avon which is awesome – I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else on the OBX! It’s so quiet and small and so beautiful!  One of our first days here, the boys found a giant sea […]

A Day in Cincinnati, Ohio!

Cincinnati is such a sweet city. I have never been here before, and I knew nothing about it, really. I didn’t even realize it was as big a city as it actually is! It should definitely be on your list of places to visit! My mom scheduled a wacky walk  for our morning in the city, […]
