Case of the Friday's.

Today has been one of those terrible no good very bad kind of days. You know the ones. Where 2 seconds after waking up you realize that you'd be better off staying in bed. I have been working too much and it's starting to take a toll, and I want to please everyone around me, but this week I seem to be falling short. At the end of the day I just need to take care of myself. I'm just going to do me and I don't plan on apologizing anymore today, unless it's really necessary of course.
 To try to turn my frown upside down, I found the cheeriest photos on pinterest that I could possibly find. Have a good weekend friends.

This cheerful print is just what I need to hang in my entrance.

This print screams Summer. Those colors are wonderful!

Check out this recipe for each sorbet with prosecco! Yum!

Can't someone take me to a pool and throw a watermelon in my lap? These photos are just lovely.

Rhubarb fizz! Pretty and delicious!

Have a happy day guys!
XO, Erin

One way ticket, please.

I don't know about you guys but we've really got the travel itch right now! There are just so many beautiful places in the world and we would love to experience as many of them as we can! Here are a few destinations and places that are looking particularly inviting to us:

Ohhh Asia, I miss you! What I wouldn't give to be wandering the busy streets of Tokyo right now.

I'm not exactly sure where in the world this photo was taken, but these pastel fields look beyond peaceful. (psst... does anyone have any idea where this is?)

Greece has always been on the top of our travel wish-lists and this photo of a beach in Mykonos is only enticing us further.
There's nothing like a good old fashioned road trip south of the border, and I think that this vintage photograph perfectly captures the fun and excitement of that.

And of course, we always love and appreciate the beauty of the candy-colored architecture in Palm Springs.

What about you, what places are you dying to check out? We'd love to hear your suggestions! XO

Sun-kissed locks.

I have a haircut appointment for later on today and I could not be more excited! My brother is getting married in a week and a half (!) and I was determined to have my bangs grown out for the event... and nine months and zero haircuts later they finally are! Woo woo! Now my locks just require some much needed TLC and styling help and I will be ready to go.

I've been dying my hair jet black for almost ten years now and last summer I slowly started incorporating some light parts in as well, and I'm thinking that I'm going to add a few more for the wedding too. Here are some photos of pretty sun-kissed locks that have inspired me lately, because change is good, right?

I'm really into the carefree 1970's vibe of this style.

 Absolutely gorgeous cut and color.

You can't go wrong with a subtle sun-kissed look.

Well, I'm off to my appointment! Have a lovely day!
Xo, Stef

Camp Morton getaway.

For three years now, a grouf of 10-12 of my closest friends and their kids pack up and head out to Camp Morton for a long weekend. It's become a tradition, and one that I look forward to all year long. The cabins are just past Gimli, and are bare bones but so much fun. This year was no exception. It was my first weekend off since May, and I soaked up every last second of it.

We got there Friday evening and Donny put on some burgers (and used an axe to flip em!)

Meet Mortimer. He's the happiest baby I've ever met. Ugh, those eyebrows! Too much!

These are my pals, playing flippy cup as the kids ran around in the background. The best part of this picture is that half of them are parents. This was a pretty hilarious afternoon...

The next morning we had breakfast and then headed off to a nearby farmer's market and flea market! I stocked up on honey and also found an amazing pair of teak speakers that came home with me, as well as a horseshoe and a few other trinkets.

Was wishing I could stash all of these bikes in a trunk.

I'm really regretting not picking up one of these giant letters at the flea market. 

The kids were so perfect the entire weekend. They played and played and played some more. Here's Rollin pulling Rusty in the shark boat on the grass.

Rusty's best statue pose. Seriously? This kid is too cute for words.

We spent a good chunk of the weekend at the beach, floating in the dingy's and doing a bunch of day-drinking. The weather was absolutely perfect, although the mosquitoes were pretty insane.

Donny & Tiff carring the shark boat to the beach! 
Until next year Camp Morton!
