My amazing family and friends threw a beautiful bridal shower party for me this weekend! I feel so incredibly blessed to have such wonderful people in my life who care and support me and Tom like this!
The party was held at my future mother-in-law’s house and she, along with my talented/crafty bridesmaids, created an entire beach theme! Everything from a specialty cake to starfish wine glasses to an awesome lifeguard chair for me to sit on! SO COOL!
I love this monogrammed recipe box! Such a cute idea!!
Oh dear…kid photos. hahaha Such a cute game. Minus those few awkward years…
My bridesmaids made this adorable shadow box with vintage postcards and photos from our fun bachelorette party in Miami!
And then, of course, to keep with the super perfect theme, they got me this super cute beach cake!!
I was so excited to spend time with my family and friends, old and new!

Sun. Sand. Best friends. That’s honestly ALL I wanted for my bachelorette party…and I got it! And then some.
My bridesmaids and I just returned from an amazing weekend down in Miami, FL!
We stayed at the beautiful & affordable Freehand Miami where we had our own little suite with bunkbeds, two full bathrooms and a hang out space! So amazing. The hostel, which used to be a hotel, has a gorgeous pool and outdoor party/bar area. Such a great find!
The Freehand also had fun FREE events like sunrise beach yoga – which you know we took advantage of!
After getting our hairs did (oh yes…fancy times), we went to some amazing spots for food too – starting with a restaurant called Ola. Can I tell you…the meatballs were TO DIE FOR. I’m now obsessed with trying to figure out how to make them. Food & Wine mag, I’m looking at you…help me out here!
My amazing bridesmaids also found a super fabulous juice spot called JugoFresh. Oh man, I’m now obsessed and want them to open one in Baltimore…They had delicious fresh juices, but also acai bowls and chia mixes! YUM
After some beautiful juice/breakfast and yoga, we headed straight for, of course, the beach. With a few frozen cocktails…
Saturday night we went to another amazing restaurant called Dolce - another win! Great wine and Italian food and, as always, conversation!
Then, as you would imagine, we had to do a little dancing…When in
Rome South Beach!
We headed to the Clevelander - brings back memories of dance parties when I was in college! haha
So all in all, I’m so excited to have had such an incredible experience with some of the people I love most in the entire world. These women are my best friends…my loves, my inspiration, my support system…my family. I will cherish these memories for the rest of my life!

So we just got back from a few days in the most magical place on Earth…DISNEY!
Ok so it’s not everyone’s most favorite place ever, but it’s an amazing spot for a family trip! Especially when you’re entertaining little kids. We had the opportunity to take Tom’s nephews (ages 3 and 5)…so it was perfect! Here are just a few of the millions of photos I took during our visit…
Have you ever been to Disney World/Land? Did you like it?
Who’s your favorite Disney character?
