Comfortable and Stylish Travel Outfit Favorites

Happy Thursday, loves! Anyone else like to procrastinate on occasion? I’m such a planner, but sometimes I’m just better under pressure. This feels like one of those times. I should be making packing lists, ordering new items, and planning for our upcoming vacation. Instead, I’m doing anything but. Honestly, I’m not even remotely motivated to… Continue reading Comfortable and Stylish Travel Outfit Favorites

Orlando’s Best Kept Secret: The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate

Happy Wednesday, loves! I have a secret. Well, it’s not a secret. No, it’s kind of a secret. Maybe. Who knows? We are waking up at home this morning for the first time since the kids got out of school three weeks ago without feeling completely exhausted, without traveling, and without anywhere to be. I… Continue reading Orlando’s Best Kept Secret: The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate

Recovering After Vacation

No makeup. No real clothes. No exiting the house. That’s what our weekend looked like. And, it was the most beautiful weekend. I know I say that every weekend. No matter what we are doing, it’s a beautiful weekend. What can I say other than that we live our best life every weekend, and that’s… Continue reading Recovering After Vacation

Romantic Weekend at the Vinoy

Happy Tuesday, loves! I had the best weekend. My husband planned a getaway for us to celebrate our anniversary in a few days, and he knocked it out of the park. It was just one night away because we currently haven’t time for more than that – but our schedule opens up a bit in… Continue reading Romantic Weekend at the Vinoy

Trvl Porter is Changing the Travel Game: No More Packing, No More Overweight Luggage Fees

Packing.  It’s my least favorite thing in the world to do. Ironic, considering how much we travel. This month alone we’ve already been gone two weeks out of three and we still have one more trip to take. We love to travel, whether it’s to Disney for the weekend with the kids or we are… Continue reading Trvl Porter is Changing the Travel Game: No More Packing, No More Overweight Luggage Fees

Your Next Travel Must-Have: Charcoal Whitening Powder

Travel is one of my favorite things, but it definitely has a way of taking its toll on my body and my health. It’s so easy to eat fast food, it’s so easy to say yes to that second glass of red wine, and it’s so easy to drink all the coffee. I’m so guilty… Continue reading Your Next Travel Must-Have: Charcoal Whitening Powder

Formal and Fabulous in Gold Sequins on Date Night

Happy Monday, Loves. Can I let you all in on a little secret? Well, it’s probably not much of a secret, to be quite honest. I was born in the wrong era. I mean, so wrong. I would have lived large and well in the 20s or 30s. I was born to dress for dinner.… Continue reading Formal and Fabulous in Gold Sequins on Date Night

Mixing High and Low on Vacation

Happy Monday, loves! It’s an exciting week in the Raiford house. Addison, our oldest, has her favorite week of summer – cheer camp. She’s been going since she was 5, and she’s been with the same group of girls since. This means my schedule is crazy, but she loves it, and her performance at the… Continue reading Mixing High and Low on Vacation

Traveling Without Your Kids: A Must Do For Your Marriage

I’m going to be late picking the girls up from school if I don’t leave here in approximately 10 minutes, but I’m sitting here at my desk in my bathrobe eating a tablespoon of creamy peanut butter with tiny chocolate chips. And I don’t feel bad. Technically, the line doesn’t even begin moving until 3:40,… Continue reading Traveling Without Your Kids: A Must Do For Your Marriage

Travel Recap: NYC With Kids

  We hated, hated, hated New York City the first time we visited. We spent the weekend of our second wedding anniversary in May 2007 in NYC. It was our first visit, and we did all the things you’re ‘supposed’ to do. We hired a limo to for our airport transfers and both nights we… Continue reading Travel Recap: NYC With Kids
