How was everyone's Memorial Day weekend? Mine was absolutely...productive! Not the word you thought I was going to say, huh? And I say that in the best sense possible because sometimes being productive doesn't always equal 'fun.' But remember how I said we were living in squalor because we had some home renovations done? Well, we cleaned up the house and I mean we really cleaned it. I'm talking vacuuming, Swiffer'ing (both dry and Wet Jet'ing), and going through our closets and garage and being ruthless with what to keep and what to throw out.

You may think that it was hard deciding what to keep and what to throw out, but when you get so fed up with just having 'stuff' take over your house, it's super easy to make that decision. I think we had about 8 giant, big trash bags full of crap from our closet alone! Then there was about 20 plastic bags full of books from our bookcase that we just aren't ever going to reread again (all being donated to the library). And the center of our garage is filled with more crap to go to the dumpster. It's absolutely insane how much we kept just because we were both lazy and thinking we would need some of this stuff later. I mean, I'm a bit of a hoarder, clearly, but after saying "oh my gosh, I was wondering where this was!", oh about a hundred times while cleaning/sorting, I'm thinking I really need to NOT hoard and only keep what I really use and love.

But because everyone on my Instagram feed seemed to be at a beach or a lake or just somewhere warm and sunny with a cool drink in hand, I couldn't help but dream of laying out at the beach. Thankfully, we will be at the beach at the end of next month (cannot wait!!!) with our good friends, The Gatbsy crew. So, I've started dreaming up of what I would want/need to take to stay chic and cool. If that's possible with a one year old...
