Birthday Weekend at Hammock Beach

I'm not sure how my birthday weekend has already come and gone, so please pass the coffee as I recap our fun getaway to Palm Coast for a long weekend at the Hammock Beach Resort. It's a quick drive from Orlando, so it's a hidden gem for locals and tourists alike. I can't thank Emily and Chelsea enough for posting all the pretty pics the past few years which led to me finally booking a trip! Alright enough chit chat, I'll let the pics do the talking....

The Pools and Lazy River

*My happy girl was living her best life at the beach and in the lazy river*

The Room

*All rooms have ocean views*

*Ready for my birthday dinner*

*I even packed my birthday glass for a nightcap on the balcony listening to the ocean*

*Morning coffee views*

The Resort

The Beach

*Beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas are included*

There truly is something for everybody, as it's very family friendly but I saw several bachelorette parties and groups of guys on golfing weekends. And I was a huge fan of the music played at the pools - Kaskade, Zedd, Avicii, etc.. I was also guilty of being one of the "big kids" standing in line for countless trips down the waterslide. 

Birthday week wasn't complete without some surprises from Nikki and Emily as well as this top that was too fun to not don during vacay from Andrea. Thank you for all the sweet messages, texts, and cards. My heart is officially full. 

Lavender and Leopard

I've been living in cozy tees and shorts (almost) all summer because this girl still has a serious love affair with sundresses. Pretty pops of color like this lightweight lavender top are my favorite to pair with my leopard sunnies and espadrilles.

Eat Cake for Breakfast

How are we already here at birthday week? Even though I'm scared to be officially in my mid-30's (yipes), I'm super thankful for each day I'm blessed with. Coming off a fabulous weekend which included a great Bar Method workout (duh) and a birthday brunch thrown by sweet friends, I'm excited for the short week ahead and a mini-vacay for the big day. I rounded up a few wishes (well let's be honest that bag is a total wish), and fun pieces that will carry me through mid-fall and others that will be great for a fall trip up north. Plus, one can never have too many lace bralettes... unless you want to wear it alone as a top. If you watched BIP last week, you know what I'm talking about.

So much excitement going on between birthday festivities, my niece who will be born any minute, going to visit family in CT in October, and a big trip planned next spring with friends. Because cruising is my favorite.

What are you thankful for right now?


A big shoutout to my birthday twin Nadine - it's our week girl. Cheers! 

Brunch Perfection

My favorite meal of the week is brunch, because when else can you enjoy all the amazing breakfast food and bottomless mimosas? I can hear the bubbly popping right now! My go-to pieces are easy and breezy dresses for this weekend affair, and I was excited when I found this dress for only $19.

Dress {Only $19 - comes in 7 colors/prints} | Sandals {similar} | Sunnies | Necklace | Double RingLipgloss 

And we can't forget my favorite photobomber. Girlfriend was living her best life running up and down the bridge, and pointing out the lily pads looking for froggies.
