In family/ style

vacation countdown + celebrations

I’m officially counting down to the Thompson family beach trip 2015. We leave Saturday, and this is the view I have to look forward to for a whole week. Prayers for good weather and safe travels!

Here are some things on my packing list! A few are on major sale. One of my tricks for getting away with less makeup at the beach and pool is to wear a bold lip color. I love this one, this one and this one. I also always throw on a little Nars blush.

We celebrated Winston turning 7 this week! Not sure how he got this big. Here’s a little flashback to baby Winston around his first birthday at Cuscowilla. If we’re ever chatting over a glass of wine remind me to tell you about the freak-out session we had with George on this trip.

In an earlier post I talked about how we do his “friend celebration” before school lets out because summer can be such a hard time to get friends together with family travel plans. This pic totally captures Winston’s personality.

Mini pizzas have been on the summer lunch menu pretty regularly. I get a little overwhelmed at times having to provide 3 meals a day to four little people. During the school year their lunch is provided, and delicious which means I don’t have to worry. These are super easy and cook quickly. The kids get involved adding ingredients, I can sneak in veggies/protein AND my children actually eat them.

A little insta round up of what I’m wearing lately. I snagged this stripe number during the JCrew sale, and it’s still currently discounted. It’s so comfortable and can go from work, to play … to play dates {which is what I wore it to}.
