Hope everyone had a good weekend!! We were staying at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City and it was soo nice. I had been to The Grand Spa before we moved (they have a really really nice spa) but had never stayed at the hotel so I was really excited about it. Me and my sister in law’s went and had a spa day and got pedicures and I got a prenatal massage which was …… amazing. I love getting room service once I put Atticus down and I got the filet mignon and it was thee best steak I have ever had. It was soo yummy.

We hung out with family, ate at all of our favorite restaurants, hung out at a cabin, went swimming, met up with friends, got snow cones, did slip n slide, watched fireworks (Atticus even stayed up to watch them and cuddled me the whole time, I was in absolute heaven), and then headed to Arizona! We got in last night and will be here all week for my sister’s wedding!

  1. I love seeing all your pictures and adventures! and the fact that you share them all and share about David and Atticus is great too! He is the cutest little boy ever! Cant wait to see your little girl too! I always wonder what you and David do to be able to travel so often other than just regular vacations, I’m alway jealous! I would love to be able to travel for a living!

    Anywayyyssss,
    You’re great! Always love your posts!

    1. Thanks so much Alysen!! That is so nice of you!! And David and I run my blog full-time, he does more of the back end of things (the business side) and I do the front end (photoshoots, events, videos, etc.). Because blogging is so flexible, we are able to take our work with us when we go on trips. I hope that explains things!! xo

  2. Amber. I started following you about a year a half ago (got my bestie to follow you as well ;). You really inspire my love for fashion and lifestyle blogging. I hope one day you can blog about how you started and everything in between till now! I teach full time but so badly want to blog and find myself so tired by the end of the day. You seem very down to earth. Beautiful inside as you are on outside. Hope one day I get the pleasure of meeting you! xx

    1. He works on the blog with me full-time 🙂 It keeps us both very busy!! But yes, luckily, we are able to go on trips as a family!

  24. your gray dress is super cute!! quick question for ya!! I am going to help at a camp in a few weeks and im actually volunteering to take care of the little babies while their parents are having fun…so im super excited but I need a one piece swimsuit. I really don’t want to spend a ton of money but I want something cute, it definitely doesn’t need to be sporty (I would prefer it not to be). but just something not to revealing but cute!! if you have any ideas that would be great!!

    1. Thanks so much Candace!! And I LOVE that suggestion 🙂 Thanks so much!! I will keep it in mind! xoxo

    1. Thanks so much Carly!! It was so nice, we loved the family time 🙂 And aren’t older cousins the best?! So fun for the younger ones!!

  26. Such a gorgeous photo diary! And I love how you tied your dress in the first photo! That entire outfit is right up my alley!

  27. The little ones in their stars and stripes melt my heart! What a fun holiday weekend filled with family and fun 🙂

    1. Aww the cutest huh?! I love that pic!! I agree!! The family time is priceless 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Krista!! I love those pictures as well!! Too funny!! I hope you had a great 4th as well!! xo

  28. What a fun weekend! Isn’t the 4th of July the best! I have always wanted to stay at The Grand America, but never have! I so need to! I hope you have tons of fun in Arizona, and congrats to your sister! 🙂

  29. Hi Amber,

    I am from Barbados and live in NY and I just want to say that I love you blog! Your family is the cutest! I’ll be visiting Utah for the first time this Wednesday and was wondering if you can make some recommendations for good food in SLC?

    Thanks,

    1. Thank you so much Elle!! That means so much to me 🙂 I am so glad you follow along!! Some of my favorite places are Eva’s Bakery (great for breakfast/lunch), Red Iguana, Pie Pizzeria and The Copper Onion (both great spots for dinner). I hope this helps and gives you a mix of all different types of food!! xoxo

      1. Yay! Thanks for the suggestions. Hopefully I have enough time to try all of them 🙂 xx

    1. Thank you Kate!! We had a great time 🙂 I hope your week is going fabulous!! xo

  30. Your photos always inspire me to start bringing my big camera more places! Does David take more of the pictures out of the two of you? Your 4th weekend looks like it was so fun 🙂

    1. It is sometimes annoying to take our camera everywhere but it is so worth it when we get lots of amazing shots 🙂 And yes, David takes most of them!! I hope you have a great day!! xoxo

    1. Thanks so much!! I hope you’re having a great week so far!! xo

    1. Aww thank you so much Ashlee!! You are so sweet love! And you will definitely need to explore the city! It is such a great place 🙂

    1. Aww thank you Adri!!! I am so glad you like it!! And yes! Stay tuned for pictures 🙂 It will be a fun weekend!! xo

  31. That view of the valley, with the fireworks, is insanely beautiful! Hope you have a great time with friends and family! Cute photos!!

    1. Thank so much Cait!! It was such an awesome sight 🙂 I hope you have a great day!! xo

  32. How did you find the Puddle Jumper fit Atticus, it says it’s for 30+lbs so I’m wondering if my little man weighing in under 30lbs will be alright, (he can almost swim so it’s just to ease my mind)

    1. Yes totally!! It is just to ease my mind for sure. It is a little big but we heavily watch him and hold him. He doesn’t float in it on his own yet. We just like it for extra buoyancy and safety 🙂 I bet your little man would do well in one if he is already swimming! xo

    1. Aww thank you!! It was so nice!! Thanks for being so sweet!! xo

  33. Looks like you had the best weekend ever!!! I’m also a hotel room service “junkie”. I don’t know what’s so special about it but I just love it and eating breakfast in bed that somebody else has prepared for you gets me each time in the most amazing mood ever! 😀 😀
    Thank you for sharing all of these beautiful photos with us, they have such a great vibe.
