Summer weekend travels

Slow down summer!  Though it has been 3 plus weeks since school ended, just the thought of packing away our summer styles and prepping for the cold scares the hee bee gee bees out of me. 

We’ve been taking it as slow as we can between summer camp and our weekend getaways we are soaking up all of the sun we can to fulfill our vitamin D needs. 

With 3 kids in tow we planned to visit some historical sites within driving distance. An 8-10 hour drive may sound like much but we’ve survived 16; now that’s serious. We chose Saratoga/Lake George as our first weekend getaway. We usually visit Martha’sVineyard  but decided to go with a group of our family members and learn about upstate NY. The kids couldn’t get enough of the horses at Bennington Farms, Martha’s Creme for ice cream, Congress park’s Carousel, of course the lake and did I mention the ice cream 🍦. 

As if that adventure wasnt enough we were brave enough to do it again….and many more times to come of course. But, traveling down south to VA to visit family was both nostalgic and educational once again. 

We stopped at chincoteague beach where the wild horses run and the famous story of misty originated.  The kiddies enjoyed one beautiful horse after another with an added touch of beach of course. We enjoyed our stay at a quaint Refuge Inn…. super kid friendly; just what we like!

Summer Days

Summer days are meant to be spent at one of the best places on earth… the beach. 

We love going to the beach to 

-collect seashells 

– talk about mermaid landing rocks 

– build Sand castles 

– read books 

We hope your Independence Day festivities include some time by the sea

What are some of the things that you like to do on the beach? 

Surprise!

we are a growing family!  Not only have we added on to our TwinDollicious, but our little family of 4 felt the need to become 5 or 6. 

 This is V & K proudly announcing that they will soon know if they’re having a brother or sister. Which may be simple for 5 yer old twins seem a bit of a mess for mommy(who planned the reveal) and daddy who can’t figure it out. 

  

A part of me is ecstatic to use a baby  wrap, use a singleton stroller and fit through door ….what’s the new lightweight trend anyway?

while the other cannot wait until this first trimester is over! We’ll be sharing more as we grow!! 

Neon girls for the Summer

Summer is coming and spring is here; yahoo! Our wardrobe has brightened a bit and so has the infamous http://www.freshlypicked.com/ moccasin collection. We must have been feeling a bit NEON because our V & K Designs by TwinDollicious matches 50% of their new drop of colors. We did a giveaway collaboration photo shoot to share the NEON love.
With the girls as CEO of the receiving department. It is their job to open all packages and they enjoy doing it. When the Freshly Picked package arrived Mom had to contain herself a bit and humbly hand it over.

The girls tore the box and pouch wrapped Moccs out took a deep sniff (which I thought was a true design lover move) and went to putting them on their feet; asking if they were for them. Yes, oh yes the dress up, style pulling, fun had to began. Here are a few takes of our fun shoot. All Moccs and matching Twindollicious Neon Green and white striped tutu dresses are in stock sizes 18 months – 6yo. One of our lucky instagram followers won this ootd.

Goodies and Giveaways from shops like Exclusive Child Boutique.. who we have recently collaborated with in adding our favorite pieces from the Twindollicious Collection

Day 3 Of Sharing Things We’re Thankful for

Every year my husband and I host Thanksgiving dinner at our home for the family. Both sides of our immediate family get together, pray, laugh, eat and relax. It is something I have come accustomed to and enjoy after many years. Secret: the first year I wanted to rip my head off! But I now enjoy it, I really, really do; besides imagine hosting all of the holidays?? Id rather take my one day, host the turkey out of it and give thanks that I will not be doing, Christmas, New Years, Easter, Memorial…… Joking. I will be sharing more Thanks for family, traditions and hosting on Thanskgiving! :):) Today I am excited to share that I will be #shopping either online or in person at #Target and #Toy r Us, and live hosting our very own first Black Friday Sale at http://www.twindollicious.com. I never think about shopping on #BlackFriday, but could not pass up some goodies for myself, my husband and the girls (big doc mcstuffin fans). Our sale will include our “best friend set” along with the Spring ’14 striped tutu dresses at 40% off using code Tutu. We hope you find a sale to be thankful for!
