Simply Loving: Vol 2

Summer Essentials.jpg

It’s Friday and summer is here! This month’s Simply Loving round up includes all of my summer faves!

  1. Champagne Stopper – perfect way to keep your bubbly fresh, it’s like uncorking the bottle for the first time!
  2. Sand Spiker Drink Holder – a must have for summer days at the beach. Never have a sandy cup again (insert alleluia emoji!)
  3. Keepsake App – this is a great app for turning all of your photos into beautifully framed prints. I love how I can do it all from my phone!
  4. Pasta Salad Recipe – this easy-to-make, lightweight (no mayo!) pasta salad has been a huge hit this summer. I mean how can you go wrong with an Italian Caprese Pasta Salad?
  5. 4th of July Hot Dog Boats – OMG! This is the cutest thing ever!! Seriously, can’t get enough of this, can’t wait to use them for a festive celebration!
  6. Bamboo Multi-Device Charging Station – I prefer to have a place for everything and this organizer is perfect for keeping all my devices in one spot and minimizes the excess wires!
  7. Sun Protection – I mean it’s summer time and we live in Florida… this is a necessity for summer time. This is by far my favorite sun screen for the body and this one is my favorite for my face.
  8. 168 Hours – this is on my summer reading list for sure! Who doesn’t want to learn how to gain more time throughout the day and accomplish all the goals without sacrificing time with family and enjoying the good stuff?!
  9. 10-Minute Workout – I love being able to get in a quick 10-minute workout with these 3 moves (especially when it’s bikini season!)
  10. Yoga on-the-go – I know I’ve talked about this before, but this is great for all the summer travel because you can take yoga classes with you where ever you go. I’ll be using this in Dallas in two weeks!

What items are you loving so far for summer?! Enjoy the weekend and chase the sun!

Labor Day Adventures

Labor Day has come and gone, but our memories from this three day weekend will last a while, especially with all the pictures we took! There will be more to come for future posts on what we did, but here’s a quick snapshot to recap the weekend:

Friday night we started out at The Grotto in San Marco with tapas and wine…lrg-581-dcp_9610

With plenty of wine to go around… DSC01600

Then we decided to mosey on over to Indochine for more wine and thai food! paleochickencurry

We called it a night after dinner, so we could get up bright and early for our Saturday adventures! photo 9

Saturday we explored the great outdoors and Kayaked Ameila Island… photo 10 photo 12

Then, we beached it for a bit to explore and take 11

We spotted something from the 70s, not quite what we were expecting in the great outdoors…photo 13

But then we made a friend (that’s more like it!) photo 8

After working up an appetite, we made our way to Historic District and stopped by Tasty’s for a bite to eat… (Disclaimer: This was Garrett’s food and he destroyed it, I’m still in awe! Mike and I had a more basic burger and fry combo with a milkshake of course!)  IMG_2306

And then we proceeded to Fort Clinch state park for some more exploring! photo 22

We swam, we walked, we explored and Garrett captured some amazing photos! photo 15 photo 14

Sunday we relaxed at the house and got a few things done, like… worked on the wedding website,wedding website

Mike built a desk (all in a day’s work)… desk

And framed out the mirror in the second bathroom… bathroom mirror

We continued our bathroom project Monday morning by priming it… photo

Then, headed to Tyler’s house for a fun day in the sun… photo 3photo 17

With some really good BBQ!photo 18  photo 20

After lunch we sat there and relaxed, enjoying the evening sun…photo 5

And to wrap up the day we continued on our quest for the best burger in Jax with a visit to Epik Burger… photo 2
