Happy Monday!!!

True Style 30 for 30 Day 25

And to think this was the best one. Wheww, exhausting!

Yummy veggie wrap, JW Pool

Beet and Goat Cheese Salad, Primo

The JW Marriott Grande Lakes
Catching up from my weekend, as we had so much fun there was no time to post! The kids and I joined my husband at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes as he had a convention to attend nearby. We swam in the lazy river, ate excellet food, and had fun with friends. We had the pleasure of eating at Primo, one of the best restaurants ever! Although you may need to take out a second mortgage on your home :) I love places like the JW Marriott, yes you pay, but you also receive nothing less than the best customer service, right down to the turndown service with chocolates and relaxing music. Although who am I kidding, with two toddlers, there was NO relaxing this weekend! :)  Chef Melissa Kelly creates plates with her "home-grown" concept in mind, emphasizing the freshest local ingredients such as citrus and seafood to create imaginative and dazzling recipes.

Awesome and Awkward Thursday

At the office: Lollipop, a random act of kindess from Crescendo, my PR Firm.
Naturally, we give these out randomly :) 
Day 23! Top and Shorts: Loft, Shoes: MIA, Jewelry: Stella & Dot, Scarf: NO clue!
-The fact that my moisture wicking shorts weren't wicking in the 98 degree heat this morning, I seriously could have rung them out.
-Taking the first picutre above with my office door open, and a man walking by at the same time. He looked at me like I was crazy. He probably thought, why would she be taking a picture of herself holding a lollipop?
-My cat Simon, he just is.
-Buying ONLY femine products and a having a male cashier.
-2 Year old emptied 3 year old's lip gloss out on my couch. Any suggestions on removing that stain?

-Going away to the JW Marriott Grande Lakes this weekend.
-Ben and Jerry's Red Velvet Cake ice cream...OH my goodness.
-Spending $120.00 at Publix and SAVING $106.00! Yay coupons!
-Amazing lightening storm and a cup of tea this evening.
-The Jonny Diaz concert I have been promoting is this Sunday night!
-Day 23 look stolen from Kendi and Keira! Love inspiration from my blogger friends!! TOTALLY awesome!

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait!

Calypso Top Clearance! WHOOP

Lakeland Local 30 for 30 Day 22
One of hub's father's day gifts, and a gift to our marriage!

So very sorry for my delay! Summer has me completely out of whack! My oldest two just took off for Alaska for 2 weeks, so things may just slow down a TINY bit! The little two are keeping me busy outside and in the pool for most of the day, they love it and are swimming like little fish. Bonus: they take great naps! 

I had to share my steal of a deal, I wanted this top featured above but only allowed myself ONE piece of the Calypso line from Target. To my surprise- on a visit to pick up randoms, I found it on the clearance rack for $18.00! Score! This is 100% silk folks! 

The second picture is from our Lakeland Local True Style 30 for 30, posted for no other reason than I am sitting here in my bathing suit right now! You don't want pictures of that as I have put on 5lbs since my vacation last week...WTC? Translation: What The Crap?? 

The third picture is of a gift that I bought for my husband for Father's Day! Actually, it was his idea as the devotional book we got at Christmas was just plain blah. I think this is going to be a good one and it really gets us talking. The first one was about recalling funny moments or things that had happened while we were together. Helped us to see that we haven't been laughing enough together. With 4 children, jobs, and schedules, we rarely get any down time together! That time together at night really helps me, and helps building the intimacy of our marriage! Marriage is so HARD. It takes three for sure, God, husband and wife! I hope everyone is having a fabulous hump day!

Last Day of Vacay, Boo!

My Family! <3

Romper: Rebecca Talor, Sandals: Target

Proud Mommy moment, just love the way he is looking at me! 

One of my favorite shots of the trip!

They really are happy! Hahaha
Could this week have gone by any faster??? Wow! I can't believe it. Memories made are priceless as in the years past. I have been going to the Driftwood Resort for 30 years now! What a special place it holds in my heart. I remember so much great family time spent with my parents and brother over the years. To now be able to share this tradition with my children is so very cool! I am back to the real world now though, laundry to do and work to catch up on. I am so very thankful that we are blessed to take a vacation, God is so very good. He reminded me of this as I watched the sunrise over the ocean this morning with Chris Tomlin's song "How Great is Our God" playing on my iPod. I hope that everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Vero Beach Boutiqueing!

Pair #1
Pair #2

Loved this gate! So pretty! 
So boutiqueing in Vero is not very affordable! So many beautiful things that I would loved to take to the register, but with price tags so high I just couldn't do it. BUT that doesn't mean I didn't find some sweet purchases! Accessories are so important to changing up an outfit, and I did find some that were in my budget! I got a bangle too but it is wrapped up so cute in the Bliss Boutique bag that I just couldn't unwrap it yet...I know corny! :)
