Happy Friday! I am finally getting into a groove now that we have been back from vacation for a week. I think I needed a vacation from my vacation :) And now we are headed on another little weekend road trip to central Illinois to visit my brother and his family. Today, I am linking up with Erika and Andrea and sharing some of my favorites lately!
Going on a road trip is one of my favorite past times and now one of my favorite things to do with my family. Two weeks ago we left on an 11 hour road trip to the East coast and visited Baltimore and Washington D.C. (our favorite city). I blogged about the Baltimore part of our trip here and will re-cap the D.C. part next week. In the mean time, here are a few of my favorite pictures from our trip.
The White House
Arlington National Cemetery
The Smithsonian National Zoo
Gabriella's favorite monument
I had high expectations for some great family pictures on this trip. This was the best we got because #littlekids
Walking Tidal Basin
The Lincoln Memorial set up for the 4th
My sis-in-law introduced me to this cute little online clothing boutique called Sweet Charity Clothing Co about 6 months ago. I've ordered some clothes and accessories and have loved everything I have gotten! My favorite is this cross body bag I ordered for our trip to D.C. (and then another upcoming trip next month). It was the perfect little cross body for walking around a city!
There are many things I love about this little boutique- the owner is the sweetest, it is FREE shipping always, and the owner donates 20% of her proceeds to charity. How cool is that? Check out the shop here.
The cross body is here. I don't have any pictures of the entire bag from our trip so here is one from her website.
Day in the Life posts are some of my favorite blog posts to read and to write (and look back on my own). On Wednesday, I blogged a day in our life here. My day started at 5 am teaching English to kids in China. It is a pretty great way to start my day :)
And that is all I have for this week. I'm still trying to get back into a routine and find the time to do #allthethings.
Happy Friday, friends!
