Now that I’m back from Florida, I thought I’d share a few photos from the trip! John and I stayed with my friend Elle’s family at their gorgeous beach home. Elle’s mom, Robin, designed every part of this house and it it is absolutely to-die-for! When I was in graduate school (ab 6 years ago), Robin & Elle came to visit and Robin was in the process of selecting everything for this house - the countertops, light fixtures, floors, backsplaces, etc. At the time I thought ‘wow, this seems really complicated/confusing!’ and now that I have a home of my own, I have even more appreciation for Robin’s hard work. It’s crazy how creative some people are - and I am grateful Robin didn’t mind me copying her kitchen! :)
Anyway, a lot of you asked for recommendation so I thought I’d share where we ate & what all we did while we were in the Rosemary/Seaside area so this is just a post dedicated to that trip! I was working while I was there so I wasn’t able to do as much (didn’t even get to the water!), but I’ll share a details on the places we went below!
Lol, I literally rolled out of bed and we took these photo so don’t mind my hair! It’s a tradition to have Elle’s dads waffles anytime everyone’s together.
My sweatshirt is c/o Wildfox - I always sleep in these. I get a medium so they are oversized.
My pajama pants are from the #Nsale, HERE - $31.
One day, I’m totally going to copy this, too - Elle’s mom always puts a pot filler about Keurig.. bc priorities, lol. #coffeeislife
We always go to Seaside, Rosemary, or Watercolor for dinner / lunch when we are in town. Friday night we went to The Wild Olive for dinner & then to The Pearl’s (poplar restaurant / hotel) rooftop to hang out! If you are in the are you have to go to The Pearl - its beautiful & that area is super family friendly.
My romper is HERE.
My shoes are HERE.
It was so fun getting to meet Mallory Ervin & Alex Garza! They were at The Pearl’s rooftop, too and our friend Joelle saw them and was like “oh my goodness, there are two you-tubers that I love sitting back there!” Ironically, I was already (internet) friends w/them so we all got to meet up and visit for a while. Alex & Mallory both have amazing You-Tube channels, you all have to check them out.

We took the tandem bike out for a spin - my first time ever on one and honestly I was scared the whole time. I thought I was going to tip us over.
