I’m the first to admit I’m not a light packer for vacations. I will say though, I have gotten better narrowing down things I really need/want to take on the trip! We are taking an 11 day trip this summer across the pond and this gave me a jump start to thinking what I’ll be taking. I always, always, always make a list of everything I will be taking. (Even the nitty gritty). I also really like to take pieces that I can mix and match with multiple outfits. I’ll be taking some of my favorite staple jewelry and my Market Tote as my carry on! Here are some of my other essentials that were easy to throw on the list! What are some of your things you can’t leave the house without?!
Today, I’m linking up with Andrea and taking a trip down memory lane to some of my favorites! This post made me so nostalgic and want to go back to being a kid for just a day! ha! It also screams the 90’s like it’s my job. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! My favorite’s the grainy commercial. 😉
I was talking to a friend the other day about how I need to switch up my workout routine. Thank goodness for some good ol’ sunshine these days, that is making a world of difference. In my mind, being outside is one of the best parts of the change from winter to spring. (Cold weather and I just don’t mix very well!) Do you want to know one of the other best factors to get me motivated? New workout gear. I’ve heard it said time and time again and tried to convince myself that my high school tee and older shorts were just fine. Although they are and get the job done, there is something about a new set of clothing that ups the ante for that early morning, eyes-still-half-asleep workout. Am I right or am I right? 😉
Whether it’s yoga, going for a run, or simply a walk, taking time to slow down and enjoy you is really what working out is all about. Pair your workout with some this fair trade, organic comfies from prAna and you are set! If nothing else, this Aloha Smoothie post-workout is refreshing and refuels you when you need it most! I like to workout early in the morning so this smoothie can serve two purposes: Post workout food and breakfast. Embrace this season sipping on something healthy for you while wearing something that is sustainable.

Friday’s are one of my favorite days and here are some of my favorite things this week. You know the drill…:)
One.My things I seem to accumulate from point A to Point B seem to be neverending these days. From school, to grocery shopping, Eric’s games, and so on, it’s nice to have my things all in one place. My Market Tote arrived from Urban Southern last week and I have been using it ever since! It’s perfect for all the necessities and more. (I’m picturing filling it with goodies at Farmer’s Markets this summer too!) I also already plan on taking it on the plane ride this summer as my carry-on.Shirt/Bag

Here we are, less than one month before school lets out for the year. This year has included a lot of soul-searching changes that have done nothing but drawn me closer to what matters the most. However, I am still beyond excited for a break and everything that summer brings with it. This summer is looking a little different than previous ones though. It’s filled with a lot more down time and I’m not complaining one bit. I want to be extremely intentional and make the most of my time though, since I feel really fortunate to have it. A bucket list seemed like the ideal thing to hold myself accountable. Slightly cheesy? Yes. Absolutely needed? Yes, yes, yes! I love lists and this one just had some more fun things added than normal. 😉 Here you are!
Read at least 10 books. Why not?
Get outside. This weather only lasts so long.
Work out 4 times a week. Because.
Write snail mail. Who doesn’t love getting a card/letter in the mail?
