Friday Favorites 7.14.17

Well that went fast! Why does the week fly by even faster when you are on vacation?!

I had every intention of scheduling two blog posts while I was away, but honestly these past two weeks have been nonstop. Vacationing with my mom’s whole side of the family is always a whirlwind, a good one but nonetheless crazy. This year more than ever I am so thankful to grow up in a big family that gets together like this once a year in a special place. We eat, we drink, we dance, we explore RI and stay up playing games all week. I wouldn’t change it for the world. My favorites this week are mostly centered on the trip, but I’ll do a recap on the blog for Monday!

My Sister’s Engaged!

 I’m so excited to have a wedding to help plan for since my sister got engaged on Sunday. Her fiancé was brave and popped the question on a walk in RI only to come back to 50+ family members who were more than ready to celebrate. They have been together for a long time so I’m thrilled they are making it official. #maidofhonortime

 Happy Hour View

The Landing has to be one of the best happy hour spots in Newport, RI during the summer. I went on two different nights this past week and the live music, the bartenders and the view were all amazing. Their food is just as good, but I really enjoyed their outdoor bar scene this year. If you are headed to Newport this summer definitely check out The Landing!

Favorite Winery

I could do a whole post on Carolyn’s Sakonnet Vineyard in Little Compton, RI and I should. It’s now owned by the woman who owns Alex and Ani, and she has really enhanced the property. It was beautiful before, but now has a more inviting feeling to it.

I stocked up on all my favorite wines for the year 🙂 I recommend the Blessed Blend in white if you visit!

Kendra Scott Earrings

I’ve been eyeing these Kendra Scott earrings for a bit now and what a perfect time to buy them because they are on sale!

OPI Infinite Shine

I used this polish last summer at some point and loved the color and how long it lasted. So I decided to use it again for my trip. It held up pretty well without chipping which always makes me happy. I have the color Pearls of Wisdom on!

Best picture of my nails this week. My aunt and I wanted to take a pic of our blessed blend alex and ani bracelets!

 

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and I’ll see you back here Monday!

    Congratulations to your sister! RI looks very beautiful. We want to do a NE trip within the next few years. Next summer we are going to go to Cape Cod for our anniversary but just sticking there. I feel like there is so much to see in NE that we may have to do several trips!

      Thank you Megan! I agree that NE can feel overwhelming because there are so many great spots. I think Cape Cod will be a great first trip!

    My immediate family is pretty small (just one sister), but I have tons of cousins (especially on my dad’s side). As a kid, I always loved family get-togethers. I really appreciate them as an adult, though, because it’s really tough to get everyone together. Thankfully, Facebook has kept us all “reunited” when we can’t all be in the same room. A week-long family trip sounds so fun!

      Isn’t having lots of cousins the best?! I agree that it’s hard as an adult to meet up with everyone all the time but Facebook is a great option.
