Loving the new Bob Marley "Legend" album that they have remixed.  It is definitely a hit at our beach house-bringing the full album today.  Beach weekend with friends!  Everyone have a great weekend!!!

Weekend Adventure...

Saturday, my friends Emilie and Erin and I decided to be adventurous and hike Crowder's Mountain.  We also decided to hike the strenuous trail, it was pretty tough, but we made it to the top-very proud!  Sure we were given a couple (or a lot) of interesting looks, decked out in lulu lemon, hats and looking pretty happy, we were not the average chick out on the mountain!  We decided to take a different route down, it was 4 miles up and we had already gone about 3 miles down when we began to doubt our direction (even though Erin had us going the right way-map girl all the way!).  Thank goodness our friendly Park ranger who we had met at the top saw us on the side of the road and flashed his lights.  He saved us, he pointed out we had at least another 4 miles to go to get back to our car and thankfully gave us a lift.  All in all a fabulous day, with a couple of lessons learned!!!

The trail-back to nature!!

View from the Top-beautiful!

Crowders all the way!

So proud we made it!

Happy Girl!

Our Bestie-rifle rack and all!

Happy Friday!

"The One That Got Away" by the Civil Wars gives me cold chills, not only are the lyrics powerful and raw, the video intensifies the underlying tensions between the two band members.  The song is breathtakingly beautiful and I can't wait to listen to the rest of the album out in August!!!

Lily and Laura Bracelets

Lily and Laura Bracelets are popping up allover the place, I personally bought mine at Pure Barre in Charlotte.  The bracelets are hand crocheted in Nepal by women and the company focuses on fair trade wages.  Not only are they beautiful and stackable (they roll over your wrist) but you are also helping women in Nepal have better lives for themselves and their families.

Warby Parker...

Warby Parker is my new found love!  I decided I needed new Sunnies with polarized lenses to protect my eyes with all the beach time I've been getting lately.  My friend at work turned me onto Warby Parker, a fabulous brand where you pick five styles of glasses (Sunnies or prescription) and try them on at your home all for free.  I picked five styles and decided on the below Sunnies, named Everett.  Not only are they reasonably priced, they give a pair of glasses to a person in need with every purchase.  I personally will be buying not only my Sunnies from here but also my eyeglasses from Warby Parker!!
My new Sunnies

You pick five pairs to try on and they send them to you for free!

Happy Friday!!

Headed back to the beach for a little family vacay with my mom's family....but only the girls otherwise there would be 100 of us.  My mawmaw, 3 aunts and various cousins will be embarking on our yearly beach trip.  "Round Here" by Florida Georgia line is the perfect way to kick off the weekend....thanks to my friend Megan for turning me onto this group!  xoxo

Ohhhh life...

So this is what my week has been like (see below) and will continue to be until tomorrow....hence the reason for a rather non-interesting post.  I hope everyone's week is a little less frantic than mine....if only there were two of me to get everything done!!  P.S. the below statement is so true!

Back to the real world....

After a much needed extra long weekend at the beach, I am now back at work and back to the real world.  The hardest part of a fabulous vacation is returning to the real world.  I had a fabulous fourth of July with cutie pie M3, friends and family.  I am somewhat tanner (I was a vampire before) and feel rested and refreshed.  Everyone have a great week!

M3 was clearly the toast of the parade....what a patriotic baby!!!!

The gang on the fourth at the beginning of the parade....we literally ran for the corn dogs and snow one gets in between us and our corn dogs!!!

Peace Out...On the Road Again...

I am hitting the road again back to the beach....Figure 8 Island is calling my name for July 4th celebrations!  I plan on doing everything below while adding in a couple of cocktails and dance parties!  Party on darlings, it's time to celebrate Amuuuurica!!
