Vacation Mode

We're heading out on vacation soon and I'm soooooo excited for WARMTH, SUNSHINE, POOLS, COCKTAILS, and really, not having to work for 10 glorious days.

Here's what I'm most looking forward to ...

+ Sleeping in. Which is around 7 a.m. at our house, but I'll take it!!

+ Lazy mornings with coffee on the warm, sunny patio.

+ Breakfast picked straight off the grapefruit tree.

+ Wild kids running free in the huge grass lawn where we're staying, where I can still watch them while enjoying my giant coffee from the patio.

+ Pool time!!!

+ Naptime - which means a little reading by the pool with a cocktail.

+ Day trips!! We have a few fun little activities planned ... and we'll be cruising in style in our rented mini van, haha!

+ Playing TENNIS! I'm actually bringing tennis shoes on this trip ...

+ Reading some new books - speaking of ... any suggestions!?!?

+ HAPPY HOUR! We love making fresh cocktails using the fruit tree fruit. Grapefruit, lime, lemon and orange drinks abound!!!

+ Fabulous Dinners. I am obsessed with "menu planning" for holidays, weekends and vacations, and love to come up with what we'll have for dinner every night. Even though it's nothing fancy, it's fun to plan a little more than the average weeknight special.

+ Early bedtimes! Sunshine and busy days mean tired kids, which means early bedtime and Mama/Papa dinnertime alone after the kids go to bed. Since my parents aren't coming with us this year, this is as close to babysitting as we'll get!

+ RELAXXXAATIONNNNNNNN! It's not the most relaxing to vacation with two toddlers, but until we can go on an adults only vacation it'll DO for SURE!



  1. I'm so excited for you! A seven o'clock sleep in sounds divine-- psst, it creeping up to eight o'clock now that the girls are getting older. Have fun!

  2. Have the best time!!! It sounds so utterly fabulous...fresh fruit off the trees, a big porch, pool time + cocktails + reading...what more could you want?!

  3. Yes to all of this, sounds amazing! Love the idea of planning fun dinners that are a little more fancier than usual!

  4. Sounds fab to me!! :-) I hope that you get tons of relaxation and enjoy some delicious cocktails and coffee! :-)

  5. Sounds like absolute perfection! Nothing beats no alarm clocks, relaxed patio coffees, pool time, and fruity cocktails. Enjoy every second <3

  7. Pure perfection! Oh girlie I hope you have the best time to get recharged and enjoy every second!!

  8. Ahhh this sounds so ideal! Have a great time!

  9. Have such a fun and relaxing trip! It will be so nice to get away and just spend time in the sun! Even though there will be toddlers, just getting away is one of the most relaxing things! Can't wait to hear about the trip!
