In family/ style

scenes from our vacation + last few hours of nsale and gigi

Before I inundate you with pics from our vacation, don’t forget this is the last day to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Gigi NY sale {+ free personalization} AND the Serena & Lily sale. I posted some favorites earlier this week, but here are a few more notables!

More of my favorites from the #nsale…really I could go on and on…

This satchel is probably my favorite from the Gigi NY sale, but you can’t go wrong with one of their classic clutches.

Our week at the beach was filled with lots of sunshine, sand, good eats and my favorite people…couldn’t ask for anything more. I can never decide if I like the beach or the mountains more. All I can say for sure is that nature is good for the soul! I snapped this pic on one of our bike rides.

I found a recipe for this cocktail on pinterest and tweaked it. Turned out to be a super refreshing summer drink!
tequilamintlimeaidTequila Mint Limeade {one drink}
2.5 oz. white tequila
3 oz. Limede
4-5 mint leaves
Seltzer water
1 fresh lime
Martini shaker
Muddle the mint {save one for garnish} with tequila in the bottom of your shaker. Add ice, limeade then shake, shake, shake. Pour over crushed ice {critical part} and add a splash of seltzer water. Garnish with lime/mint and enjoy!

Here’s George, the master fisherman and goofball. They love their VV tees.

So Ella helped me build this sand castle step-by-step. People always ask me if I see a difference between having boys vs. girls.Well often there aren’t tons of differences at this age, but I have to say this was one of them. All the years the boys would say they wanted to build a sand castle, we would start to build it and about halfway into it they can’t help but smash it all or lose interest. Ella saw this thing from beginning to end, helped “decorate” it with the leaves and wanted to do it all over again!

Then she was totally enthralled with snatching up the boys’ fish from the bucket. It was quite hilarious. She also has almost no fear of bugs…guess it’s a baby sister thang.

Thankfully, she likes me to fix her hair. She is now requesting a bow at bedtime…not sure where that came from.

Robby and I celebrated our anniversary on Wednesday in Seaside eating oysters and crab claws. I wore this pink top with these red heels. Didn’t plan on mixing these, but love them together. {Shop the white denim here, clutch is from Kane Boutique}

Terrible pic, but best we could get after sunset.

Then the sun set on our little getaway, it seriously went by WAY too fast this year.

I love this quote from one of the leaders at our church. Good thoughts for the week ahead.
