I always love a good shopping trip to Trader Joe’s, but there is nothing better than shopping at Trader Joe’s during fall. They have such fun fall themed products from food to beauty products, you are guaranteed to find something that you love. Here are a few of my favorite Trader Joe’s Fall products that are always on my shopping list.

Are you sick of my Europe pics yet?! Haha I know we have so many. I love taking photos but I also love coming home and not taking photos for a while. Gotta have some balance I guess. My sister and her lil fam are in Europe now and since they are in Lake Como I was looking up all our pics we took there as a family and went down a rabbit hole looking at so many old photos. I love looking back on our travel photos they are so special to me! When we got to the La Spezia port we took a super quick 10 min train ride…

We recently got back from our families first cruise vacation together. We went to Europe to get a first look at Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Symphony of the Seas . The 7-night Western Mediterranean itinerary started off in Barcelona and stopped at Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Marseille, France; and La Spezia, Rome and Naples in Italy. You’ve already seen posts on here from most of those places! It was really nice to be able to go to all those countries in one vacation with the kids and not have to pack everything up and take a train or road trip or anything like that!We either did our own excursion that we planned or one planned by Royal Caribbean – you have the option to do either at any port you visit! So, if planning things to do in foreign countries can be stressful for you, then their planned excursions like their “Private Journeys,” which we did, would be a good idea.

Some pictures from beautiful Cassis today!!! I love love love Cassis – it is a beautiful little port town that offers the most incredible hikes and views. We didn’t have time (or the correct clothing lol) to do a hike but instead we hung on the beach and rented a paddle boat which was so fun. The kids searched for pirates and jumped in the freezing water followed by getting some gelato which you can tell the kids were very into. It is always fun going back with kids to places David and I have been before and have memories. We kept talking about all the familiar spots we passed – the parking lot we slept in (we slept in our car haha), the place we went to get hot coco because I was so cold that morning, the hotel we parked outside of hoping to get some free wifi 😉 haha such freeloaders omg.

Last time I was in Barcelona I was with Atticus when he was 3 months old! It was our last stop of a 3 week Europe trip and I was TIRED. I remember trying to find the energy to leave our Airbnb to go explore but we only left a handful of times and mostly snuggled in bed together. I also remember sitting there nursing him as we were laying down and all the sudden seeing a spider crawl across his tummy and I freaked out!!! I hate spiders and instantly feel so dirty and gross like they are crawling all over me after I see one so I found a new bed for us haha. I love telling Atticus all…

Wanted to share pics from the first stop we made on our cruise!! We stoped in Palma de Mallorca and we rented a car and drove over to Es Calo des Moro Beach which was about a 50 minute drive. It is a really busy but beautiful beach that you hike down to. I highly recommend going and also walking around to some of the other coves in the area. So many beautiful coves and beaches! We arrived at around 9:30/10am and it wasn’t too busy but by the time we left the parking lot was PACKED and the beach was getting too crowded so if you are able to get there at even like 8am that would be ideal timing because it is a very small beach and so so many people come. It is also a topless beach too just a heads up! Which I was totally fine with and I def had my topless moments when I traveled France solo back in the day 😉 (it was a bucket list thing!) but it was crazy because I have been to so many European beaches and this one by FAR had the most topless women I have ever seen!

This weekend we were in Manhattan Beach and it was so fun and so nice to swap the heat for the nice ocean breeze. I wanted to share a 12 things since I just feel like making a list. First, this evening on the beach reminded me of Hawaii and I sooo miss slow evenings spent on the beach. A Hawaii vacation home is something I definitely keep in the back of my mind when I need motivation to work hard.

Ordering things on Amazon is way too fast and easy it is frightening – haha. It is almost becoming a hobby for me just to search for fun, new gadgets and try them out at home. Even though I have zero space in this rental for any “new fun things”. I wanted to share 10 of my favorite purchases that come to mind. These are ones we use a lot so that is why they all probably came to mind. Also just in case you wanted to know, you can order a 5 lb bag of watermelon sours on Amazon. Sorry and also you’re welcome.

I asked you guys on insta what you wanted to hear more about on here and overwhelmingly the response was more on pregnancy blues! So I hope this doesn’t come across like I am being super negative, I know I have already mentioned it on here before and I usually try to keep the mood on here really uplifting.. But the whole reason I wanted to bring it up in the first place was just that I felt sooo weird posting and portraying me as my normal self when I felt nothing like my normal self..
