Farewell July

Have I seriously not recapped our 4th of July weekend yet? Whoops. I'm settled back into my new-old job, and am honestly happy. I left for multiple reasons a little over a year ago, and all roads led me back to where I was truly the happiest. When they asked me to come back earlier this year I was thrown off guard, but let it marinate for a while and realized it's where I belong career wise. With that said, things have been back to super crazy busy just as I remember hence my absence here on my little slice of the internet. 

We kicked off the holiday weekend with dinner and margaritas at our favorite local spot and lots of pool time of course. I also did my best to make sure Lil' Miss and I were rocking red, white and/or blue all weekend. I paired this knotted tank with an oldie but a goodie white denim skirt for dinner, and it was super comfy. 

We headed to a friend's house for 4th of July festivities, and ended up staying to watch the fireworks from their hot tub since it was raining at the park we were going to go to. Hot tub views > sitting at a park. 

The following weekend, some of the girls went out to celebrate our two July birthday babes and experienced High T for the first time.

A beach day is also always a good idea. We headed to New Smyrna Beach for the day one Saturday before stopping off at our favorite Tiki Bar and Grill on the intracoastal for a late lunch/early dinner.

July of course included trips to Universal, and we are thoroughly enjoying our 2nd year as annual passholders. Lil' Miss gets upset on the weekends we don't end up going. Our little thrill seeker! We have our favorite rides and go-to bartenders at certain spots and know when the wait time is just not worth it. The Florida summer heat is no joke though, so I scooped up this romper which was light and airy paired with sneaks. We also started using these cooling towels which are a game changer! I have no shame walking around with one on my neck.

And who would I be if I didn't see the Barbie Movie opening weekend. I was hesitant to bring Lil' Miss due to the PG13 rating, but it was for suggestive language that would go right over her head which it totally did. So, we donned our pink and headed to the theater for a mommy-daughter date. I hadn't been to the theater in YEARS and was pleasantly surprised that they now have luxury recliners. YES please! 

A selfie with a mouth full of popcorn and a stop for Barbie ice cream after was on the agenda. The perfect Sunday afternoon.

  1. We're going to take our kiddos to see Barbie, too. I figured the same thing about the innuendos. I'm sure Jacob will probably get some of them, but he's old enough to see it anyway now. Hopefully the bad stuff will still go over Olivia's head, though! I've heard nothing but good things about it!

  2. That is cool you went back to your old job, I'm sure sometimes it is just nice to see what else is out there and then you realize you really loved what you had. I LOVE high tea's or just any tea times in general. I loved the Barbie movie too and I'm glad I went to see it, even though I was hesitant.


  3. Congratulations on going back to your old job. I saw the Barbie movie over the weekend and loved it too! Love your blue beach coverup!
