Philadelphia Area Day Trip: New Hope and Lambertville

Sometimes a day trip is just what the doctor ordered. Between work and kids' activities, it can be hard to get away from it all for an extended period of time, but we love to set out on adventures as a family, and our most recent one took us on a family travel adventure to New Hope, PA and Lambertville, NJ.

In under an hour, we were in picturesque New Hope, PA. If you've never been to this area, it's a quaint artists community that sits along the Delaware River. There are bike paths, shops, restaurants and galleries to amuse yourself with, along quaint tree-lined streets.

Wrapping Up Summer - Favorite End of Summer Style

Welcome back to another weekly fashion post. In this post, I share what I'm wearing right now along with some helpful ideas and inspiration for shopping your own closet and looking at your clothing in a new and stylish light. This week, I'm sharing a little end of summer style post. Even though there are probably about 8 more weeks of warm weather, in my mind we are wrapping up summer.

Summer vacation is ending, school is starting, and that means an onslaught of fall clothes in the stores an in your mailbox. A cool crisp morning has me wanting to reach for boots, even though it will be 85 degrees by noon. I find this season tough to deal with. White jeans? How much longer? Flip flops into October?

On a recent family trip to Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ, I wore a simple eyelet t-shirt, over a basic tank with my favorite Ann Taylor Skinny Jeans. A pair of comfortable walking shoes finished my outfit.

Menu Plan Monday - 2015 Week 35

Welcome back to another weekly meal planning post. Even with 34 weeks of plans under my belt this year, some weeks, are just HARD. No motivation, no inspiration, just blah. That's where I was this weekend. Even though I pulled out books and magazines, I'm staring at a big blank box for today. We have two weeks left of summer vacation before school starts, and I'm trying to enjoy the laid-back, no routine days as much as possible.

Weekly Meal Plan Ideas - Real Food for Real Families

For menu planning, that has meant lots of stuff on the grill. Just toss some meat or fish, potatoes and veggies on and dinner is done. Not much mess to clean up afterwards either. But even there, I'm a little bored. SO - what are we having this week?
