Paris in a day

August 5, 2018

Is Paris in one day even possible? Well no… not really, except if you’ve previously spent a week here.  Then it’s fun to revisit your favorite sites on a one day stop over. On our previous visit, we enjoyed all the tourist sites. So this trip, our focus was to relax, enjoy the food and take photos without large crowds. To accomplish the latter, we started our day at 5:30am before sunrise.  Thus, we had Notre Dame and The Louvre all to ourselves. Next destination…. VENICE!!!

If it’s your first visit to Paris, I recommend the following:

  1. Eiffel Tower
  2. The Louvre
  3. Notre Dame Cathedral
  4. Arc de Triomphe
  5. Musee d’Orsay
  6. Chateau De Versailles
  7. Lots of walking, exploring, and SHOPPING!!!

My wedding is soon approaching and the celebrations are in full swing. This past weekend, Justin and I enjoyed a couple’s shower. The theme was Fiesta and a nonstop blast. Thank you to all the family and friends who joined us and to Jenn (my MOH) for hosting a fabulous party.

Zion + Horseshoe Bend

April 20, 2018

It’s April and the wedding festivities begin in a week. Before life gets too hectic, a siblings road trip is necessary!  We traveled from California to Zion National Park, Utah, and then spent the night in Page, Arizona. The following morning we enjoyed a sunrise in Horseshoe Bend and headed up to Bryce Canyon, Utah before returning home. Little sleep, lots of hiking and plenty of fun!!!

New York Itinerary

December 2, 2017

Trying to plan a perfect girls getaway? Look no further than NEW YORK CITY!!!! Since this was our second visit here, I thought I would share some highlights (a perfect itinerary for a girls weekend).

1. Walk around Central Park and boat ride on the lake (The Loeb Boathouse)


2. Top of Rockefeller Center. The view is stunning!!!!

3. The Flatiron building. Bonus: It’s located by the restaurant Eataly!!

4. Brooklyn  (The first photo is the view of the Manhattan Bridge from a street in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Next, walking on the Brooklyn Bridge.)

5. The National History Museum. This museum is HUGE and you could spend a day or two exploring. If you watched Night at the Museum, you will love identifying the different characters and artifacts from the movie.

6.Enjoy a play!!! For my first show in New York, we were able to secure opening night tickets for the fabulous Rockettes…..phenomenal.  The choreography and costumes put us in the Christmas spirit.

7. Pick a fun hotel! Decide the area you prefer to be closest to. For us, it was Central Park and 5th Ave. We stayed at Le Parker Meridian with a wonderful view of Central Park and a great little bar, perfect for late night chats and a glass of wine.

 Our favorite time to visit is November. The weather is chilly so you can wear all your cute layers BUT hopefully no snow yet.  This definitely makes it easier to walk/drive around. Also, the department stores are decorated for Christmas and The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is delivered.

Restaurant recommendations, two of my favorite are Sarabeths and Eataly. Leave any of your recommendations in the comments for my future trips!!!!

Baby Shower!

November 30, 2017

On November 5th, I hosted my very first baby shower. It was fun and easy to plan.

The shower was held on the beautiful patio at the Farmhouse Restaurant in Roger’s Garden. Their floral team created two stunning centerpieces and I added some small decorations for the table… confetti and flower crowns (purchased on Amazon). The favors were Nothing Bunt Cakes tied with blue ribbons and cute little message cards.

I highly recommend the Farmhouse Restaurant for any lunch date or small gathering. The food is exceptional and the staff is fantastic!!!!!
