Sometimes it’s nice just to have a few friends over for a night in. I love these ideas to make the evening just a little more special. These little touches can really make for a memorable evening. Like these mini margaritas with taco bites. I have always been a big fan of food and drink pairing, and this one just seems perfect. Or try a crostini bar, or these brilliant little jars spanish bar food in a jar. LOVE! An outdoor movie in the backyard would be such the perfect summer theme. I also loved this mamas night out party by the fabulous ladies of Beijos Events. Something I think would be so special is to gift each guest something, like they did at this Mamas party. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, and could certainly be homemade, but a little gift is such an unexpected and fun surprise for your guests I think.
This installment of Family Getaway takes us to Vancouver, BC where we will be going with my family next month. I have never been, and am so excited to explore there. If you guys have recommendations for me please leave them in the comments! Where should we eat? What should we see? I have included below what’s on my radar so far…
I absolutely love this quote. So true, especially for me. What about you guys?

Sometimes I just get in a rut of cooking the same things over and over again especially for breakfast. Here are some great ideas I am hoping to try. I love how they are so out of the box, yet still healthy and delicious!
My husband and I both love to cook and I think our best dishes come out of when we cook together. Here is something we whipped up the other night for dinner and it was amazing. You can make your own variation of this super easy. Try removing the proscuitto and cheese, add fresh herbs…the options are endless! Bon appetit!
I love this quote so much…happy Tuesday friends!
It’s times like these, when things get really busy, that meal planning is a must for me. Otherwise, who knows what’s for dinner! Here are a few of my favorites I am dying to try. Healthy, unique options! Enjoy!
I have to admit I am kind of obsessed with the bento box lunch idea. Piper’s school actually provides all of their food so up until now I have not had to pack her lunch for her. Enter her first field trip. For field trips we pack their lunches, and I suddenly felt a need for a bento box style lunch box. While I did my research I found there were a TON of options. I would say my first choice would be Planet Box. However the price tag steered me in a different direction. The adorable ones from Pottery Barn Kids are on sale right now, and Piper adores purple and unicorns, so it was a win win. Feeding kids like this is a great way to get them to try new things, and a way to provide them with a nice well rounded meal. Give it a try!
Completely obsessed with the new Hermes catalog. The inspiration to-go pic is from the catalog. How gorgeous right?!
