Life Lately + Friday Faves


Happy Friday!

Life has been crazy busy lately, mainly in the work department so I apologize for being MIA. I've been working til 2 am most nights and then waking up at 6 am to head to the office. Thankfully, yesterday I got to work from home saving me the two-hour round-trip commute and giving me a mental break to focus on getting shit done.

Reggae Rainout


One of my favorite bands played this weekend at Cocoa Riverfront Park, a nice outdoor venue close to home. The lineup of bands were great (Matisyahu and Tribal Seeds) leading up to my favorite, Slightly Stoopid.

Europe Travel Planning


I started planning our Europe trip in November last year after we scored super cheap tickets flying into London. The 6+ months of planning has paid off with all planes, trains, hotels, tours, etc booked and confirmed.

Hello June: Life Lately

May came and went pretty quickly (like the rest of the year it seems) so I wanted to share some happenings from May and a few tidbits from the weekend.

The Weekend When I lost 24 Hours of My Life


The 3-day weekend was a nice break, albeit I was in bed sick for a good portion of it. We had our friend from Boston visiting Thursday through Saturday so the guys golfed while I was at work on Friday and then we had a fun pool day on Saturday.


I caught a case of exhaustion on Sunday which was the day we had two pool parties to attend. Maybe it was all the sun from the day before or just long work days recently but I could hardly keep my eyes open.

I barely managed to get through Episode 1 of The Crown in an attempt to brush up on my British Royalty history before our trip over the pond next month. I have no clue what hit me but I've never in my life felt that exhausted.
I felt a little more human on Monday but the exhaustion was still lingering. K and I went to the pool for a couple hours. I relaxed after and caught the second episode of the Crown.


It wasn't the fun weekend I had planned to catch up with friends but I hope all the rest/sleep I got makes this week go smoothly.



Happy Memorial Day America


I'm enjoying the 3-day weekend we get in the US for Memorial Day today but wanted to check in with a tribute in the form of a quote.

New Summer Workout Gear

I certainly didn't start 2019 right health-wise although I'm not one for New Year's resolutions. I do set personal and professional goals for every quarter of the year (the business side of me, if you will).

Sunny Weekend & Wedding Vibes



The last few weekends have been very low key so it was nice to head over to Florida's west coast for a beautiful wedding, fun with friends, and lots of sunshine.

Park Pizza & Brewing Company


I haven't done a restaurant review in a while but a trendy new spot recently opened up close to home and I love the concept. I know there's nothing new about a brewery or a pizza restaurant but Park Pizza & Brewing Company's menu is eclectic with a delicious variety of rotating beers brewed in-house.

Happy Mother's Day


Summer Wishlist



Since it's basically Summer temps here in Florida, I have my heart set on a few things for enjoying the sunny days spent at the pool or beach. That doesn't mean we get perfect weather, it's actually a 50% chance of a beautiful weekend or a rainy and stormy one. Thankfully this weekend looks like a sunny one.

Favorite Travel Accessories


I guess you can say travel is on my mind as I gear up for our one big trip of the year. While I love that we've done some fun long weekend getaways to US cities over the past few years, we decided to put all of our eggs in one basket this year and finally make Europe happen.

Packing for Sleep & Comfort on Long Flights



I've been shopping for our Europe travels this summer and recently purchased items specific for our 8-hour direct flight over the pond. In an attempt to fight jet lag when we land at 7am, I really want to get some sleep on the plane so we can hit the ground running when we arrive in London.

Favorite Street Art Sightings


One of my favorite things recently is to spot creative street art on my travels. Whether it's a polished wall mural, decorative sign, or just random street art, I feel like it brings out the culture and soul of the place I'm visiting.

Easter Weekend in SW Florida



It was nice having Good Friday off of work so we could head south towards my in-laws and enjoy a long weekend with Lola in tote. I took very little photos but I think we accomplished a lot on this quick trip visiting friends and family along with new babies and new homeowners.

Beauty Faves - Always a Repurchase


From nails to hair, these are a few of my favorite beauty products that are always on repeat.

Life & Happiness

I love my community and all that they do to keep us connected, entertained, and even healthy with free yoga classes every Sunday.

Recent Amazon Purchases

Of course Amazon is my go-to for all things household related along with gifts, party supplies, and everything in between. These are a few things I've purchased for myself recently, mainly for upcoming travel adventures and the warmer months ahead.
