We’re back!

Holiday2016.jpg

Hi friends! We’re back from our little hiatus and we’re feelin’ refreshed (or as refreshed as you can be while you desperately want to continue staying home binging on shows…). We had a lovely week of bopping around town, hanging with friends, and eating everything in sight. We’re excited to share our holiday hangs with you, but sorry in advance that all of our photos are iPhone pics…we really went hard with the “no blogging” thing 🙂

We started the vaca week off with exciting news that Christa and Curtis got engaged!! (She’ll be putting together a post all about it real soon, so stay tuned!) It added some additional fun to their annual Christmas Party, which was festive and joyous as usual! We ate our little hearts out (pot luck dinners, man, they’re intense!), stayed up way too late, and made Reg’s first Dutch Baby, using Chrissy Teigen’s recipe from her new Cravings cookbook that Christa gave Reg for Christmas. #YUM

We tried out a new West Hartford bar, Noble & Co. with our lady loves, Julie & Rachael, and had way too much fun taking selfies all night…that’s what happens when you don’t get to hang out as much as you’d like!

And we finished off the week hang at one of our favorite places to get caffeinated – Dom’s Coffee. It’s just so tasty, and the atmosphere is spot on. We ran into two of Christa’s friends – Victoria & Karri, both working hard on their businesses! #bossladies

Now we’re back in the real world, hoping this short week flies by so we can resume lounge mode. Christa is off to Denver on Sunday for a week of skiing, so stay tuned for that as well! How were your holidays?! xo

Happy Friday, friends! We’re getting back into the swing of real life, but we’re still wishing we were back here! We had such an amazing time playing games, making food, puzzling, swimming and just hanging out (all 11 of us!). Take a peek at our 5 days in Old Lyme heaven 🙂

^ And last but not least, we had to pop into Lobster Landing after our friends over at CT Eats Out did such an amazing interview with the owner. The lobster rolls were fantastic and we saw Enea in his little uniform running around talking to people and making things happen!

Sweet Beats // August 2016

We are so very close to our vacation time in Old Lyme, CT with our old pals, and we are beyond ready to soak up that sun with the gang. This kind of vibe definitely gets us into an upbeat poppy kind of mood, with of course a splash of indie because I just can’t help myself.
