I'm back back... in cali cali... after a weekend in Paradise Valley, AZ for my best lady friend's bachelorette party!
I felt silly for packing a suitcase- as it turned out, I really only needed my bikini. I thought I'd be catching up and getting ahead on some blogging, but a computer anywhere in our general vicinity would have been a pretty terrible idea. We went a little nuts- or maybe a lot. A few of us were finishing off another school year, while the rest of us have been buried in work since Christmas, so we needed to let loose. And, how often is it that you get to hang with six of your best friends in an infinity pool on top of a mountain in Phoenix, Arizona? Just this once for me, I'm sure.
I picked up Stacy Friday afternoon for the drive- car packed, 2 gallons of water and plenty of playlists, ready to rock. Before we crossed the Arizona border we drove straight into a thunderstorm/sand storm of sorts; the craziest driving conditions I've ever experienced. Pummeled by sand and rain, emergency lights were an order and no one was driving over 20 mph- in fact, some people pulled over and just straight stopped. We lived to tell the tale and made it to the house in time for Friday night fettuccine.
I'd say the risk was well worth it... I pulled up and was directed to park in a private garage, attached to my own bedroom, private bath, mini fridge, flat screen tv... WHAAAT!? I felt spoiled, it was awesome. Not to mention, the TempurPedic bed, I miss it already... Friday night we stayed up late singing in the hot tub so we slept in on Saturday and woke up to french toast and plenty of bacon. We spent the rest of the day lounging by the pool and sipping on fancy cocktails. Sunday we all left the house for the first time since arrival, only took us 6 hours to get out the door. After brunch, we restocked our beer supply and hit the pool again. It was HOT so we made friends with the pool once more, threw some burgers on the grill for dinner, played some beer pong and hit the hay.
Yesterday's eight hour drive was a bit rough; half of my body is burnt to a crisp and pretty sure my ass melted into the driver's seat never to be seen again, but the way back is never quite as wonderful as the way there. We were tried, hangry, and dreading diving back into work and responsibilities. So here you are Tuesday, feeling a whole lot like Monday. How did you celebrate Memorial Day?

Who's excited for Memorial Day weekend! I am so pumped to hit the road!!! I'm off to Phoenix for a bachelorette and I'm driving out with my BFF who happens to be the bride to be. I personally love long car trips, and she does too, so this will certainly be one for the books! We're going to stop for some lox bagels before we leave and pool toys before we arrive! I plan on sitting/lounging/swimming by or in the pool for the entire 72 hours of the weekend. I am so ready for a little vacation action.
Today's favorites are my round up on some vacation essentials:
Don't forget the sunscreen! Getting burnt to a crisp on day one of vacation has to be just about the worst, plus skin cancer's no fun. Remember to get down with that SPF!
And of couse, SHADES! Protect your eyes & look cute - don't forget the glasses.
Tunes are essential when it comes to proper vacationing. Get the earbuds so everyone can pick their poison. SAM SMITH. ALL DAY.
COCKTAILS. Because when you're on vacation... it's 5 o'clock somewhere!
Sandals. Poolside, shopping, or out for dinner, the BAKER will keep you comfortable, casual and looking flyyy!

Spring is in full force here in Texas and I couldn't be happier about it. After a long winter season it is so refreshing to see bits of color popping up along the roads and in our backyard. These are a few of our first flowers that came up. The highways are fully lined with bluebonnets right now too... it is such a beautiful sight to behold as you drive along the pavement roads. This time of year always makes me think about backyard barbeques, days at the river, soaking up the sun and really just feeling a new zest for life. I'm hoping we get some good rain this month so we can actually enjoy our rivers this year!
What is the weather like in your neck of the woods? Is it still cold or is it warming up? What do you most look forward to as the seasons change?
Spring is in full bloom and all I can think about is summer. We've gotten in some newness over here at Blowfish that I'm super stoked about. I really need a new beach bag since my old one's a big ragged, so I'm thrilled that we've got in some amazing new bags this year! One of my favorites is the wave. This one looks cute for a day in the sand, and also is the perfect size for a weekend trip! I have a bachellorette party coming up in Phoenix for three days and I know this will be the perfect travel companion.
My personal style is definitely simple staples jazzed up with some statement pieces. I love a fun scarf or a unique pair of shoes that will make my outfit stand out. Lightweight scarves are hard to come by, but the iconic is perfect- I love the infinity style for layering over necklaces paired with a cute summer dress or maxi skirt. These monaco sandals are one of our best sellers right now, so I've got to get a pair- the tan color matches with everything and the style is super unique so I expect to get a bunch of compliments when I rock these...
