Ice Cream Social

This dress!! Swoon. Is there anything better than ice cream in summer? I think not, haha.  This dress embodies everything fun and sweet that ice cream has to offer. How about the vintage flair too?! I always gravitate towards items that remind me of the 1940s-1960s. Especially the 1950s. I wanted this outfit to have a dash of whimsy, a spoonful of bright color, and a healing cup of cheeriness. We had ice cream the night before at Katie’s Homemade Ice Cream (delish!!) and I instantly fell in love with the location. I knew it would make the perfect backdrop for the dress. The dress fits perfectly (wearing a size small) though I wish the skirt portion had some more flair to it.

Yellow Checkered Dress


Yellow Checkered Dress c/o || Similar Bag || Sunglasses || Pearl Necklace || Pearl Bracelet || MVMT Watch c/o || Blush Sandals c/o || 

The vintage vibes are strong with this one! I cannot resist anything that has a little vintage flair to it, this dress included. I especially love that a belt was included and the cute ruffles. This would make a great dress to transition into fall with as well. The color is more of a muted mustard yellow, which is perfect during the fall months. I actually got a lot of compliments on this dress while we were at the Mashpee Commons. It was a hit! If you’re visiting Cape Cod, definitely check it out. It’s a very charming outdoor shopping center that looks like a little town. This is also where we spotted Cape Cod Coffee for the first time. They also have a location in Hyannis. I would recommend the cranberry flavor as well as their lattee’s. I went back for seconds! The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a small for reference.

Classic Summer Movies


Good morning everyone and happy Monday! I hope all of the dads out there enjoyed their Father’s Day weekend!   

With summer in full swing, I thought it’d be fun to take a look at the top 10 movies I always watch in the good ole summertime. Most of them do take place in the summer and they’re all classics. Now, don’t get me wrong, there are many more movies that are essentially summer based like Grease,  National Lampoons Summer Vacation, American Graffiti, or The Sandlot, but I don’t watch them over and over year after year, though they should be watched! They’re all anazing classics. Below is the list of my favorite classic movies that I make point to watch each summer and sometimes throughout the whole year! 

1. Rear Window


This is one of my most favorite movies of all time. It’s no surprise it’s a Hitchcock movie. I’ve always been fascinated by this movie in the dead heat of summer in New York City. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve watched this movie, especially with my mom. She was always my movie buddy. Grace Kelly is absolutely stunning and at the height of her career here. My senior prom dress was inspired by her white gown in this movie. I also love that Jimmy Stewart is a photographer and the majority of the movie takes place in one room while looking out or “people watching” his neighbors. 

“A newspaper photographer with a broken leg passes time recuperating by observing his neighbors through his window. He sees what he believes to be a murder, and decides to solve the crime himself. With the help of his nurse and girlfriend, he tries to catch the murderer without being killed himself.” 

2. Gidget 


This was always the one movie I tried to catch on TCM each year. It would always be in the summer and I can remember all of the beautiful light shining into my parents house with the windows and door open to let the fresh summer air in. While some might think the Beach Party movies with Frankie Avalon are the essential summer flick, Gidget was the one for me. It’s such a cute film taking place on the sunny beaches of California. Sandra Dee is adorable and James Darren is pretty cute to look at too. 

“Diminutive teenager Francie Lawrence (Sandra Dee) has a bunch of boy-crazy friends, but she could care less about boys. That is, until she goes to the beach one day and meets surfer Jeffrey "Moondoggie" Matthews (James Darren) and his friends, including Burt "The Big Kahuna" Vail (Cliff Robertson). Now, Francie, whom the boys call "Gidget" -- short for girl midget -- wants to learn how to surf, so she buys a used board and dives into the sunny world of Southern California surfing fever.”

3. The Burbs 


I remember first seeing this movie as a kid and being instantly hooked. It’s been an all time favorite of mine since then. I watch it multiple times throughout the year. I watched it last week! It’s another “people watching” movie involving neighbors similar to the idea of Rear Window. The whole cast comes together perfectly to produce some amazing results. It’s great to see Carrie Fisher in this and the trio of Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern, and Rick Ducommun are so funny to watch. 

 “Settling in for some time off in his suburban home, Ray Peterson's (Tom Hanks) vacation becomes a horror when the Klopeks, a suspiciously odd family, move in down the block. Enlisting the aid of his paranoid buddy, Art (Rick Ducommun), and his militia-man neighbor, Rumsfield (Bruce Dern), Ray sends his son and wife (Carrie Fisher) away on a trip while he investigates the Klopeks. When a neighbor disappears, Ray and his cohorts risk their lives to save their cul-de-sac from the clutches of evil.”

4. The Seven Year Itch 


 I have been a huge Marilyn fan for quite some time now with this being one of my top favorites of hers. My other two favorites are Niagra and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She has always been one of the most beautiful women in the world to me. Interestingly enough, my brother actually introduced me to her. This was always one movie I would put on to have going in the background while I would work on homework or be writing a paper. There’s something just really comforting about this movie. It’s funny and cute and Marilyn is beyond beautiful. Of course, there is the famous skirt scene, though you don’t see much. 

“In the midst of a summer heat wave, New Yorker Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) ships his wife, Helen (Evelyn Keyes), and their son off to Maine for vacation. Left alone to work back in Manhattan, Richard encounters a gorgeous blonde model (Marilyn Monroe) who has moved into the apartment upstairs, and becomes immediately infatuated. While pondering infidelity, Richard dreams of his beautiful new neighbor -- but will his fantasies about her become a reality?”

5. To Catch A Theif  


Another Hitchcock movie starring Grace Kelly, only this time the leading man is Cary Grant. ~Swoon~ He is my favorite actor and magic always happens when Hitch directs either one of them. This was one of my mom’s favorite movies of all time. She loved the fireworks scene. My junior prom dress was inspired by the gold dress Grace Kelly wears to the costume party. There is much to be dazzled by between the two leading actors and the stunning French Riviera. 

“Notorious cat burglar John Robie (Cary Grant) has long since retired to tend vineyards on the French Riviera. When a series of robberies is committed in his style, John must clear his name. Armed with a list of people who own the most expensive jewels currently in the area, John begins following the first owner, young Francie (Grace Kelly). When her jewels are stolen, Francie suspects John, destroying their tentative romance. John goes on the lam to catch the thief and clear his own name.”

6. The Long, Long Trailer  


I actually just watched this one last night! The two stars alone make this movie quite a gem. If you’re fans of the television classic I Love Lucy, this is an absolute must see. It’s nice to see Lucy and Desi in color and to also hear Lucy’s actual singing voice. This is not a musical, but there is one scene where they kind of hum/sing a quick song while driving and it’s one of my favorite scenes in the whole movie. They look so relaxed and happy while driving through some gorgeous scenery. 

 “Nicholas Collini (Desi Arnaz) has to travel for his job as an engineer -- so his fiancée, Tacy (Lucille Ball), suggests that rather than buy a house after their wedding, they invest in a motor home so they can see the country together. But the aggravations of life with nosy trailer park neighbors and the dangers of piloting an enormous trailer across narrow country roads soon take their toll on the happy couple, putting their young marriage in turmoil.”


7. The Ghost And Mr. Chicken  


This is an all time favorite movie with my family. We all love it! My family loves The Andy Griffith show so we’ve always been fans of Don Knotts. Who doesn’t love Barney Fife?!? I love the hometown feel of this movie and the “spookyness” of it. “And they used Bon Ami!!” This movie could be considered a good one for Fall as well with the ghost theme, but I’ve always considered it more of a summer movie. In all honesty, I watch it multiple times throughout the whole year. The idea for this movie actually came from an episode of The Andy Griffith Show called “Haunted House.” Andy also helped with writing script. 

“Looking to score a break as a newspaper reporter and impress beautiful Alma Parker (Joan Staley), milquetoast typesetter Luther Heggs (Don Knotts) pitches a story about his small town's haunted house. When his editor (Dick Sargent) insists Luther spend a night alone in the spooky mansion, where a grisly murder-suicide had taken place decades earlier, the timid reporter learns that the house contains a supernatural resident who doesn't like visitors.” 

8. Jaws  


This is the quintessential summer blockbuster movie where you’re going to need a bigger boat. Bonus points, this was filmed in Cape Cod near Marga’s vineyard and Falmouth! One of the most iconic two music notes in movie history. 

“When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.” 

9. Send Me No Flowers  


There are three films where Rock Hudson and Dorris Day teamed up together including this one, which was the last of the trio. The others include “Pillow Talk” and “Lover Come Back.” This one has always been my favorite though since it shows them in their everyday married life and all the halirty that follows. Tony Randall really steals the show here and also stars with them in the other two movies. 

 “After eavesdropping on his doctors as they discuss another patient, George (Rock Hudson), a middle-aged hypochondriac, leaves a hospital visit believing he's terminally ill. Assuming he'll soon be dead, George enlists his friend, Arnold (Tony Randall), to help him find a new husband for his wife, Judy (Doris Day). They eventually settle on Bert (Clint Walker), a successful businessman. But George's odd behavior makes Judy suspect he's covering up an affair.” 

10. Dirty Dancing  


No one puts baby in a corner! Enough said. That lift scene at the end and the romance that blossoms during dancing lessons will make anyone swoon in the summer heat. 

 “Baby (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she's disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents. Her luck turns around, however, when the resort's dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby's father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she's determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer.”

Classically Nautical


Sail To Sable Dress c/o || Ava’s Dress || Sunglasses || Wicker Bag || Jack Rogers Sandals || Vineyard Vines Hat (Old, Similar) || Jackie Kennedy Earrings || Pearl And Anchor Bracelet || 

Good morning, friends! This dress could not have been more perfect for being on the Cape.  The flutter sleeves give the dress just the right amount of flair while keeping the look classic, elegant, and fun! I love how comfortable the dress is too. This was another look that I matched with Ava, though we didn’t get too many photos together other than our macaron snap and our yearly family photo in front of the Nausset Lighthouse, which is the lighthouse on the Cape Cod chips bag! This is one of those dresses I love to keep in rotation all summer long. It’s so easy to throw on with some sandals and go. 

What a gorgeous day we had! We started at one of our favorite antique stores and then headed to Cake and Islands Dessert Shoppe. They’re known for their sea glass candy, but also their macaron cookies. They were amazingly good! We ate all of them on the beach, haha. Next we stopped at the National Seashore Park office in Eashtham, which is also where the Nausset Lighthouse is. Fun fact, on August 7, 1961 President Kennedy signed a bill establishing the Cape Cod National Seashore to preserve the Great Beach and prevent large scale development from occurring at other places along the Eastern seaboard. It includes 43,607 acres and nearly 40 miles of seashore along the Atlantic coast. After visiting the park office, we went to the beach where Ava played with a sand turtle toy she got at the park store and then eventually to the lighthouse to get some photos. Ava thought someone lived inside the lighthouse and kept knocking on the door. She is adorable to watch! To end the day, we stopped in Chatham, my second favorite town on the Cape. It is beyond charming. We stopped for dinner at the Chatham Raw Bar to try out their oysters after hearing so many good reviews. Trust me, they were the best oysters I ever had! I’m kicking myself for not getting a photo of them, but I literally inhaled them as soon as they got to the table.

Happy Tuesday, friends! First, happy birthday to my brother Mike! I can’t wait to celebrate with him. This look definitely puts a smile on my face. It has my all time favorite vintage vibe going on with the forever fun polka dot print and the tailored white shorts with an adorable bow at the waist. I matched Ava with her ruffled polka dot top and white bottoms. I seriously cannot resist matching with her! Both pieces fit extremely well and are true to size. I’m wearing an XS for reference. We took these photos at a newly found restaurant for us. Persy’s became one of our go-to spots for breakfast with a huge menu, great prices, and even better food! The meal I got the most was eggs, bacon, home fries, and a common crumpet. Of course some coffee too!

Sunset Memories


Blue Crochet Dress c/o || Similar Sandals || Wicker Circle Bag || Sunglasses || MVMT Watch c/o || Pearl Knot Necklace || Mom Bracelet || Ava’s Top and Skort Set ||  

 Good morning everyone and welcome to Monday! One of the things we love to do while on the cape is to catch some breathtaking sunsets and trust me, they never disappoint! There are a few spots to watch the sun setting over the bay, but one of the highest rated is Skaket Beach in Orleans. This is a great family beach too. It’s never overcrowded, very clean, has warm bay water, and of course has the amazing view of the sunset. This was our first time trying out the beach and we were very impressed! This was actually one of our busiest days and it was very relaxing and memorable to end it with the beautiful golden glow. I wore this blue crochet dress for our day out and love it’s gorgeous details! I’ll tell you, Chicwish never disappoints with that. It has a full crochet finish with eyelet details, a scrolled hem, and is pleated at the waist. I’m wearing an XS for reference. 

Stay tuned tomorrow for some matching with Ava! There were a few outfits I had planned out where Ava and I would match. I’m also getting our family photos from the trip ready to go as well. Looking back on them gives me the biggest smile and fills my heart with happiness. Until then, have a great Monday!

Good morning and happy Thursday!  We were very lucky to have some incredible weather on our trip that was perfect for the beach. We made sure to make the most of it too, especially after this hard winter. With beach weather comes swimsuit season! For the longest time, I really only had one or two swimsuits I would pull out every year, but when they started looking old and thread worn, I vowed that would never happen again, haha. Honestly, there are so many great bathing suits out here for very affordable princes, there’s no reason to keep recycling the old ones year after year. The one I’m wearing above is only $14 and has the cutest floral print with little ruffles. I’m wearing a size small. I’m also loving my new MVMT sunglasses and watch! The sunglasses fit my face nicely and do not slide off my nose, which happens to a great deal of sunglasses. The reflective lenses are always an awesome touch! The watch is elegant and timeless with brushed rose gold stainless steal and a peach 100% leather strap. Use the code “amandabrezovsky15” for $15 off of your MVMT order!

A Princess Moment


Pink Satin Dress c/o (Sold Out, Similar Here and Here) || Ava’s Tulle Dress c/o || Similar Pink Sandals || Jackie Kennedy Pearl Earrings || MVMT Watch c/o || Kate Spade Mom Bracelet || KJP JFK Pearl Bracelet || KJP JFK Pearl Necklace || 

Good morning, friends. First, I want to express my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Kate Spade. My heart goes out to them. I was completely shocked and saddened to learn of her passing yesterday. Her brand and vision have always been an inspiration for me bringing color, sparkle, and whimsy into the fashion world. I remember getting my first Kate Spade bag only a few years ago and what a monumental moment that was for me. She brought affordable luxury to the masses and allowed us to peak into her world of fun and vibrant colors. She did live colorfully and she did leave a little sparkle everywhere she went. Thank you Kate. You will be missed. 

This was one of my most favorite photography shoots we did while on vacation in Cape Cod. I told Ava these were our princess dresses, which she loved! She kept telling me we looked like princesses for the rest of the night. She didn’t want to take her dress off. Both of our dresses are from Chicwish, a favorite of mine. I was happy to see they started carrying children’s clothing too. As soon as I spotted this tulle floral dress, I knew Ava would not only love it, but look darling in it. She’s wearing a size 3-4. She wears a 3T now. My heart swooned a bit when I saw my dress. It’s perfect for any formal event, especially with wedding season upon us. Mine is currently sold out, but I linked some similar ones also from Chicwish.

We took these photos at the JFK memorial on my 30th birthday. A great way to end a very memorable day. This is my favorite spot on all of the Cape and that’s saying a lot since every spot on the Cape is charming and dreamy. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous going down behind the memorial and glistening on the water fountain. It’s relaxing and very peaceful to be there, especially with Veternas Beach being in front of the memorial too. It’s a great little spot to come and the spot where I initially fell in love with Hyannis. I can’t wait to share the rest of our photos from our vacation!

Good morning and happy Tuesday, friends! I don’t know what it is, but I adore matching. I love matching my accessories to my outfit and I especially love matching my outfits to Ava’s. Those are my favorite! I was thrilled when Julie Brown NYC told me they were doing a matching collaboration with Dress For Cocktails. I could not wait to see what they had in store. The dress is so vibrant and stands out in a crowd. It also has pockets, which, let’s be honest, is one of the best features for a dress to have! I’m wearing a size 2, but I should have gone with the 0. The 2 felt a little loose. Now, the bags (tote and clutch) have a removable magnetic bow, which matches the print of the dress. There are also a few different colored bows available to mix and match. I told Ava the little matching clutch was hers to carry around and she loved it. She also really liked the removable bows. She was constantly switching them around. It’s a neat idea!

Happy Birthday To Us!


Hello friends and happy Tuesday! Today is a very special day for me, my 30th birthday! It’s hard to believe I’m in my 30s now, haha, but I’m at a good place with it and excited to see all that my 30s have to offer. If you know me or have been following along, then you know today is also JFK’s birthday. It is the coolest thing for me to share my birthday with him! The best gift my mom could have ever given me. He would have been 101 today. I treated myself to these cute Cape Cod turtles the other day. They were absolutely delicious and even better with my favorite place on earth on them.

VIIcode Eye Mask


VIIcode Eye Mask c/o || PJ Set c/o || 

Good morning, friends! Today I’m excited to talk about a revolutionary eye mask system from VIIcode. The eye masks are soft pads with a gel-like material that feels amazing to put on. A fun tip would be to put the pads in the refrigerator before applying them at night. To receive maximum benefits from the eye mask, it is recommended to wear them for eight hours at night. One box comes with six pads, which can be worn two or three times per week giving about two or three weeks worth of treatment. A full treatment would be three boxes total. Now, onto the benefits! Being a busy mom, I typically have under eye circles that I need to cover up with makeup in the morning. Depending on the weather, the delicate skin around my eyes can feel a bit dry as well. The eye pads are so easy to put on. You just peel back the plastic, stick the gel side against your skin, and go to sleep! When I would take them off in the morning, my skin looked refreshed and felt soft. The dryness was gone and my delicate eye skin felt moisturized. My eyes didn’t look tired anymore, but looked revitalized. I really love how these masks work while I’m sleeping too. A totally no fuss system that delivers results with powerful antioxidants. Some of the key ingredients are, Vitmin E, Sodium PCA, Sodiun Hyaluranate, Allantoin, Aloe Barbadneis, and Algin. I was also impressed with the feel of the gel pads. I was worried they wouldn’t ld stay on or would fall off while I slept, but that did not happen at all. The gel had a nice cooling feeling (fantastic in the warm summer months!) and they stayed put all night long. No slipping or moving around. If you’re under eye area needs a little love, definitely give these gel eye masks a try!

My Mother’s Day Weekend


Good morning and happy Wednesday friends! Today I’m happy to be able to share a little glimpse into the fun filled history adventure of my Mother’s Day weekend with you. I finally finished editing all of the photos and got to relive the memories while doing so. I was fortunate enough to spend it in my favorite city filled with history, culture, and excitement. Ava’s always learning and soaking up information. I find it important to teach her as much history as I can about each place we visit. She loves it and can tell you quite a bit about American history! A current favorite of hers right now is Abraham Lincoln. She was completely taken by him and wanted to go talk to him, which we did multiple times at the memorial. One of my favorite pictures is actually her gazing upon Lincoln’s portrait at the National Portrait Gallery. She looks so small standing next to the painting and is in a state of awe. Coming from a history loving family like mine, it’s pretty amazing to see. I kept telling Ava all weekend how lucky I am to have her and thank you for making me your mommy. She gave me the most beautiful gift of all. Being her mommy.

Floral Fever


Ruffle Floral Dress c/o (Use The Code AmandaZOV20 for 20% off of your order!) || Straw Circle Bag || Jack Rogers Sandals || Sunglasses || KEP Earrings c/o || DW Watch c/o || 

Hello all and happy Monday!  I am currently writing this from outside as it is such a gorgeous day! We had rain for about 75 perfectof the weekend so it truly feels like a breath of fresh air. Speaking of the weekend, did anyone watch the Royal Wedding?? I didn’t see it live, but as soon as I woke up, I watched all of the highlights and read up on all of the details. It looked like a dream wedding and Harry and Meghan were so happy! I couldn’t be happier for them. I also went to go see Deadpool 2 and loved it. Ryan Reynolds is perfect in the part and oh so halarious. If you liked the first Deadpool, then you are sure to pleased with this one as well. 

 I’ve always been a huge fan of floral prints and wear them year long no matter the season. When the seasons do change into fall and winter, I change over from light brights to dark florals in order to keep rocking my favorite print. They’re also my favorite backdrop to photograph against. The song lyric, “these are a few of my favorite things” comes to mind when thinking of this dress! The eye catching white flowers set against a beautiful blush background make for one stunning combo. The ruffle hem adds some feminine flair while the ruffle cut out in the back gives this dress a fun sexy twist that still feels elegant! On a side note, does anyone know the name of the white flowering trees I’m standing by? They smelled AMAZING! Possibly jasmine? No one knew for sure, but they were increadible.

The straps have an exquisite design and excellent quality. 

I hope everyone has been safe with the torrential rain and all around nasty storms the east coast has been getting hammered with lately. We lucked out with only getting some heavy rain and gusts of wind yesterday, but other areas nearby were getting hit with hail and tornados too. Hopefully we’ll see some sunshine soon, although it looks like a steady storm running its course throughout the weekend.

Sea of Lavender


 Tignanello Circle Bag c/o || LC Lauren Conrad Dress (Old, Similar) || LC Lauren Conrad Heels (Old, Similar) || 


Good morning, friends! What a wirl wind the past few days have been! I’m floating on cloud nine just thinking about all of the adventures we just had, but more about that later. I hope everyone had a lovely mother’s day too. I kept telling Ava, thank you so much for making me your mommy. You gave me the greatest gift of all.


I’m not exactly sure what type of flowers these are, but they create the most beautiful sea of purple down along the river walk. It’s a gorgeous spot, especially with the sun setting. Ava bug was my little helper carrying around this Tignanello bag for me. She knows a good circle bag when she sees one! She always says, “mommy loves circle bags.” Haha, she is beyond adorable. Tignanello is a brand I’ve come to know in recent years and appreciate their quality and eye for classic styling and functionality. Their design team draws inspiration from the aesthetic of traditional Italian craftsmanship. One of the best places to shop the handbags is on QVC. I believe you can find some on Amazon too, but QVC is their main retailer. My mom would have loved that, she was a big QVC fan!

Matching Floral


Floral Wrap Dress || Floral Bag || Similar Sandals || Similar Sunglasses || Hoop Earrings || DW Watch c/o || 

Good morning, friends! There’s nothing I love more than a beautiful dress. If I had to choose one item to wear for the rest of my life, it would be that. As soon as my eyes spotted this chiffon dress, I was in love! The vibrant pink and mint floral pattern had my heart swooning along with the flirty ruffles and figure flattering tie waist. The subtle breeze would pick up every now and then and allow the dress to flow beautifully. To match in the same lively floral print is this turnlock clutch. I’ve always been a big fan of matching as gives a sense of vintage timelessness and having a competed look. This bag is on sale now and under $20!

Weekend Update


Good morning friends and welcome to Wednesday! This post is all about our adventures celebrating May The Fourth Cinco De Derby weekend. Haha, it truly was an amazing time with many many memories that we’ll cherish forever.

To start with, Friday was Star Wars day, known as May The Fourth Be With You. Ava was thrilled! My brother and I took her to her first baseball game where they were celebrating Star Wars with characters walking around, sounds and video from the movies, boat loads of merchandise, and changing out the opponents team photos with Star Wars villains while our players photos had light sabers for bats. The weather was phenomenal too adding the overall greatness of the night. Even the Rail Riders mascot Champ came over and gave Ava and big high five! 

Next came my brother’s fiancé’s graduation from Penn State, my almamater! It was so special to be back and get to share this new chapter in her life with her family. Ava and I dressed up in our blue and white dresses to match the PSU colors. As soon as the lion saw her he came right over to snap a photo. We took some photos together after the ceremony, had lunch tnd then some ice cream before everyone needed a nap lol. Later on, we had a little Cinco De Mayo party followed by a bonfire at my brothers. We didn’t watch the Kentucky Derby, but we were keeping our ears open as to how the race went. So many celebrations in one day! 

Our last big event of the weekend was a trip furniture shopping with my brother and his fiancé. I also have to note the photo of Ava in her car seat, my brother took that! It turned out being one of my favorite photos from the weekend. He really knows how to make her smile.
