Beach Bum Planning

This week is all about planning, packing, sorting, listing, cooking and more for our trip to Cape Cod. The kids are so excited and all I can think is how this is starting to feel like a full time job. Truth is I am really excited for this trip!  Nothing spells out fun quite like quality time in the sun for me and I do believe this will be a very memorable family trip for the kiddos.

When my husband was younger trips to Cape Cod were tradition for a few years and so he decided to try and set such in motion for our own family. Along for the ride will be our 3 kids (ages 9,4,2) as well as my Mother-in-Law. She has already called and given me her list of items that she will be bringing along plus recommendations for what I should pack. 😉 We both are old school and plan our lives on sticky notes, index cards and other forms of paper. I’ve come to realize that as wonderful as an iPhone may be with scheduling apps and calendars etc. I truly love writing things down. Recently I was introduced to an amazing collection of life planners, stationary sets, recipe cards, calendars and more! Consider me smitten and also kicking myself for having not ordered my planner before now lol! Go check out her awesome goodies:

Do you have any Summer travel traditions?

Mini Getaway

This week the Man and I are out and about having some fun for our 10yr anniversary. First stop was NYC for some fun at The Daily Show and then a double date with friends to enjoy some amazing Korean Fusion at Danji. I would highly recommend this to any and all. The world needs a dose of sake and tofu from time to time… trust me. Dessert was insisted upon and I finally was introduced to Pinkberry. Thank goodness this place does not exist near me because it is ‘visit me daily’ good.

The day ended with a deliciously double bubbled bath by LUSH. Can we say sweet smelling perfection? Lush believes that the “best way to enjoy bath time is to make it fragrant, relaxing and slow – a reward for making it through the day.” I absolutely agree. Have you tried a bubble bar lately? They are divine and one of the most sweetest gifts you can give to someone you love in my humble opinion. 😉

Now on to day 2! Today was travel from New York out to New Hampshire for a couple nights at Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa. The Man is eager for a massage while I am thinking more along the lines of some beauty pampering like a spa pedicure and facial please! Although the day looks to be a bit dreary and some rain is expected to follow us out there I’m in high spirits. Our halfway mark will be a Yankee Candle Village Store with over 400,000 candles to be smelled by yours truly. Heaven!

Only thing missing is a lovely pair of Hunter boots. I’ve been desiring such for some time now. But how do I pick??
