Surviving Summer Essentials

Summer is in full swing here on the lake and I wanted to share some of my secret weapons for surviving summer!

1. Portable Fan - This thing has been a life saver with tiny babies! Sitting in the stroller eating or taking a nap outside I just clip it to the side of the stroller and turn in on the keep them cool!

2. After Sun Gel - This stuff is a great natural sun gel that I feel completely safe using on my kids and myself. Its not that fake green color, not sticky and works wonders on sun-kissed skin.

3. Sun Bum Face Stick & Sun Bum Sunscreen - Again, all natural and great coverage for the kids! We do an annual trip to Hawaii and what really turned me onto it was the fact that its coral reef safe!

4. Puddle Jumper - Jameson is one and a half and he has been loving the freedom of the puddle jumper as opposed to his actual life jacket! This is what I use as the first stage to teach my kids how to swim.

5. Learn-to-Swim Flotation Jacket - THIS gem here is what I use as the second step to teaching my kids to swim. As they are more comfortable in the water you remove the foam pieces until theres nothing left! Once Vienna made it to about 3 foam pieces we had her start practicing without the vest and with a kick board (I recommend one with handles)

6. Beverage Holders - SO you can go one of two ways here. First I have my Yeti Wine Tumbler for around the pool and beach. Then I have my Yeti Rambler for the more inconspicuous times a mama might need her wine. I suppose it makes a great water bottle also.. Cheers! ;) 


So there you have it! My list of summer essentials, if you have any summer essentials you and your family can't live without PLEASE share! 

Locals Guide to Lake Chelan: Brunch

I'm excited to share my first of a new series I'm working on, a locals guide to Lake Chelan!

One of my favorite things to do is go out for a yummy brunch! I'm sharing my top three locations for Brunch in the Lake Chelan Valley!

1. Sorrentos at Tsillan Cellars


Sorrentos has the most amazing Sunday Brunch. If you haven't been to Tsillan Cellars, their wine and view are hands down reason enough to go visit! But, I would literally be here every week after church for brunch if I could. Chef Brian does and exquisite job of offering multi-dementional breakfast meals! My favorite item to date has been the Crab & Eggs Benedict! PLUS the mimosa buckets, obviously.

2. Blueberry Hills


This is the most amazing destination restaurant for brunch! Mis Kari at Blueberry Hills has her crew cooking some of the best home-cooked meals! The decor inside is super eclectic and adorable. By far my favorite item is the Eggs Benedict, but if I were only able to get one item it would be a huge plate of hash browns!! Literally the most amazing potatoes of your life. AND they have amazing Italian sodas! YUM!!

3. Campbells Pub & Veranda


 Campbells is the perfect family friendly restaurant, I love that its right down town and were able to go for a walk and shopping right after brunch! My favorite is their Omelets and Bloody Marys!!

CHEERS everyone and Happy Brunching!

Hello friends! 

I wanted to share some of the most popular items I’ve been asked about so far this year. So I put a look together with them! I love how flattering this shirt is, and it comes in SO many colors. The cardigan is one of my personal favorites, it comes in tons of colors, is light weight and perfect for spring / summer outfits. The beans are super comfortable and forgiving. Booties are a comfortable shoe with a thick heal. And of course my Jewelry are accessory staples for an easy way to dress up any outfit!
