Powder White Sand & Swim-up Bars

Tammy Hiveley - April 8, 2015

I’ve been procrastinating. I just couldn’t get myself to edit our vacation photos due to the fact that I have one billion snapshots to go through. It’s daunting to say the least. I packed my good DSLR and between the 5 of us, 5 iphotos are full of pics. Now that’s ridiculous. I finally spent some time today sorting through my Lightroom folders. I don’t even want to admit …

Wild About Vacation Style

Cate Mezyk - February 27, 2015

I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation style list for you, with everything from clothing to accessories, …

Vacation Rewind

Cate Mezyk - February 24, 2015

Someone take me back to Arizona asap. Seriously – it’s so stinking cold here in Minnesota! I love my home state, but when you board a plane in 80 degree weather, and return to -5 degrees, it’s rough going. I know, I know – I’m not going to inspire sympathy from many around here. After all, at least I got to escape the bitter chill …

Wild About Summer Prints

Tammy Hiveley - June 6, 2014

We are head-over-heels wild about summer prints!  We can’t get enough of ’em. And this season, we’re crushing on the old classics. Anchors, starfish, coral… need I say more?  Just the words alone get me excited to hit the beach with sunnies and a tasty frozen drink!  {Try the drink we’re wild about~ our healthy pina colada recipe ~ the perfect thing to sip while wearing your summery prints} So …

Take Me Back

Cate Mezyk - May 6, 2014

As many of you know, I headed off to sunny Florida and spent 6 days in Ft. Lauderdale with my family recently. It was a very long winter here in Minnesota, followed by the spring that pretty much wasn’t. So it was kinda glorious to play in the sand and feel the warmth on our skin for a bit. I started every day with a …

Wild About You

Cate Mezyk - August 9, 2013

I feel like I’ve been gone more than I’ve been home this summer! But it sure was lovely to have a 9 day break with family and friends during our tour of Wisconsin. First up was our yearly jaunt to Waupaca, followed by a night in the Dells, and ending with a few days in Door County. This week, I’m wild about my new camera …

Here We Go Again!

Cate Mezyk - July 23, 2013

This will be my view for the coming days, as we get ready to go here, here, and here. We don’t leave for awhile yet, but packing for a family of five takes awhile. My personal bags are usually the last of the bags to be packed. I always have to get everyone ready first, and then I’m scrambling at the end to get it …

Red Hat Society

Cate Mezyk - May 28, 2013

Oh, giant floppy hat, how I love you. I cannot tell you how happy it makes me that giant hats are in right now, because they are seriously saving my skin. I’ve said it before, but all the damage I did in the past to my poor epidermis has me hiding under hats now. Because I’m certainly not going to miss out on all the …

Cate Mezyk - May 21, 2013

I’m 4 days into our Florida family vacation, and I am loving this time with my family. Disney was a wee bit crazy, with 90 degree temps and blazing sun both days. But hey – it could be snowing! I’ll take it. We got lots of Disney tips from friends before we went. We definitely did it smarter this time around than we did the …
