I'm Back!

I'm back from vacation and am stiiiiill settling in. Geesh. But we had a great time with my family. Stayed in a beautiful resort (Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach). Ate a lot of really good food, which I'm paying for now with tight shorts... Had a lot of yummy pool pitchers. Shopped. Caught a baseball game, which I practically fell asleep during. Dinner with an old friend. Did Disney. You get the drift. We left Fletcher here in Charleston with Josh's parents rather than bring him with us. While I missed him so much I know he was happier here with his schedule than he would have been there running around town with us.

So here are a few scenes from the week. This is completely unrepresentative though because I had 30 family members there and, well, very few people are in the pictures. I need to get better about that. The week just goes so fast. By the way, Shake Shack is freaking good.


The resort. It was beautiful. This is the world's largest circular pool. Apparently that is a claim to fame... Pretty anyway though, right?


The ol' lay across the laps beach pose... And my head is probably nodding off in that baseball picture.


I wore my new yellow Madewell hexagon dress that I told you all about. I'm in love with it.


In fact, I'm in love with bunches of Madewell's current dresses. I snatched up this Tunic Dress last week too. Freaking love it. I did manage to resist the 3 other dresses that I really really wanted. Go me, I guess, right?


Anyway, it was a really nice break. And also great to come home to Fletcher, our house, oh and our new house too! Lots of progress being made over there: cascading kitchen marble, more tile, a mint front door, a little something called electricity. I'll try to share an update this week! Happy Monday, Everyone.
