Knotted for Fall

Knotted for Fall

We've had a few breaks in the heat, but it has still been pretty warm. Although, when I think about it being 10-15 degrees hotter plus humidity in August I realize it's definitely not still "summer". It's our "Florida Fall", and we'll experience actual fall temps in the winter which in my opinion is the best way to winter. No, Olaf I don't want to build a snowman - ha! If you need a backstory - I grew up in Connecticut and have experienced enough snow, ice, gray skies, and bitter cold temps to the point where I'm ok if I never see it again. One of my favorite combos for this in-between weather is a knotted top like this one and a skirt or pair of shorts and sneakers.

Oh yes, someone decided to use her sidewalk chalk on the pumpkins near the front door. A little extra pizazz before we carve them for Halloween.

Spooktacular Weekending

Spooktacular Weekending

Happy Monday! I thoroughly enjoyed an actual real life weekend, as I've been busy with work events most of the month and have another one this coming weekend. Doesn't look like we'll make it to the pumpkin patch or the corn maze this year, but we made sure Lil' Miss wore her costume and went "trick-or-treating" at SeaWorld's Halloween Spooktacular event. In true social distancing style, her costume included a face mask, and the candy came down a shoot into her bag for zero contact. I was just so happy to see her enjoy the upcoming candy filled holiday. Her free pre-school pass this year has been priceless, and I'm glad we got annual passes as well. 


There was also a craft beer festival going on, and as passholders we were each able to print out $10 credits to use inside the park as well as a card for 3 free samples from the festival. I loved seeing so many of the local breweries available for us locals and tourists on vacation to enjoy. Supporting local even at a giant theme park! The only problem we encountered was we spun our wheels for at least an hour trying to enter the park because the bar codes for our passes in the app weren't allowing us in. We waited in 5 lines after getting the run around as to what the problem was. Turns out - since we printed up cards of our passes the last time we were there the bar code in the app no longer works. Say WHAT?! We were frustrated to say the least, and Lil' Miss kept asking why we weren't inside trick-or-treating or on rides yet. She was a total trooper, and didn't fuss at all through all the inconvenience. VERY thankful she napped before we left the house, and I didn't even hesitate when she asked for the unicorn cheesecake ice cream cone on our way out. YES baby of course! 




That margarita was necessary after the whole ordeal as annual passholders trying to enter the park. I cashed in my $10 coupon immediately on the drink while H hit up one of the craft beer festival stations for free samples, we got brisket loaded waffle fries (YUM), and Lil' Miss picked out her trick-or-treat bag. She chose Frankenstein! It simply said "Frankly I'm cute" - TRUTH.

*This was from my favorite local brewery Crooked Can - if you're a Central Florida local or here on vacation I highly recommend taking a break from the theme parks and International Drive area and heading to Downtown Winter Garden. Lots of great restaurants, shops, outdoor events, and the Plant Street Market where you'll find this brewery.


What is Halloween going to look like for you this year? Is your neighborhood passing out candy? Are you skipping it this year?

Let it Flow

Let it Flow

Hello there, long time no chat! Work has been crazy, but as always - a good crazy. I've been trying to soak up as much of the season with Lil' Miss as possible which means decorating pumpkins, baking apple cider donuts, and lots of nice walks. The weather has cooled off a little, but is still warm so when we went to dinner the other night at a favorite local spot we chose patio seating and both rocked flowy dresses to stay comfortable. I've been gravitating more towards women's midi dresses in this in-between weather, and they are perfect!

Some of you may have seen on Instagram that we decorated a pumpkin, and she was SO excited to make it into a unicorn. I found the decorating kit at Target (of course), and the best part is - it was only $3. Boom! They have a spider version of the decorating kit if your little girl wants something more creepy crawly or if you have a little man. We're looking forward to carving a jack-o-lantern as well as we get closer to Halloween.
