travel log

Friday, July 24, 2015

we had a back to back weekend trip last week. two weeks ago we took a quick trip to chicago for my husband's conference and then another one in las vegas last weekend. they were both quick short trips but we were able to make the most out of them. in chicago, we briefly visited with my sister and sister-in-law and had a really nice dinner with them. the weather was nice and cool and not as humid as texas. we got lucky as it quickly rained the day we flew back to houston.

we flew back last monday from las vegas. when ben  had to go to his meeting, aston and i window shopped and hung out at the pool. we didn't last long outside as it was so hot. clearly, i am still recuperating from those trips but it's great to be back home and be around this time for the weekend. we have yet another busy one ahead of us. we've got 2 summer birthday parties to go and aston can't wait to see his friends again!

totes

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

target has been killing it on the bags and accessories department lately. all summer, they have been spot on. case in point - this oversized reversible tote that's great for travel and even for work everyday. i first spotted it in the store and immediately grabbed the fuschia pink one (reverses to taupe) and took it to our beach trip. it holds everything and travelled well even in the plane. 

it's a very clean and minimal tote but with all the gorgeous colors, it sure is a great workhorse of a bag with a bit of colorful flair. only under $37! you can't beat that! (click pic to shop)
