Time for Vacation!!!

Hi Happy Summer to everyone!! Wow, is it already June 17? I want Summer to slow down.......

I am headed out for a Girls Get- A-Way and I can't wait. I have never done one before and am over the top excited about the prospect of relaxing, sightseeing and have great meals that I can savor without rushing.

Where's our destination you may ask? Charleston, SC!! It's going to be over 100 degrees so lucky for us we booked 2 nights at Kiawah where we can sit by the pool and relax in the hot sun. Since most of Kiawah is condos and home rentals we secured a hotel that appears to have all the amenities we could dream of.

Our first night we are staying in the Historic District where where we are around the corner from the famous King St. If anyone has any ideas to share about dining and sight please leave a comment. We are taking a tour on Friday for 90 min so we will have plenty of time left to see other things. Ideas for lunch Friday would be great as well as places to dine in Kiawah.

I hope everyone is enjoying the Summer!!! I'll be back to post pics when I return. Back to packing....what to wear, what to wear???

Summer Travel.......Florida Bound!

Hi everyone, Happy Summer!! It's been so long since I have posted here. I thought it would be fun to show my packing list for our upcoming Florida Trip. We have several stops along the way at the beach but our main destination is Disney. It will be hot but we are looking forward to the fun and excitement that is Disney --here is a preview of some of my clothing items---

I have relied on J Crew and Loft to carry me thru on my vacation. Of course, the long sleeves will be for air conditioned times and cooler nights (if we have any)--Savannah, Amelia Island and Vilano Beach are some of our stops on the way. We can't wait. 

Here is my go to list when packing for a Summer vacation:

Sleeveless tops
Cardigans or long sleeve tops for cool night or air conditioning
4 pairs of sandals
3 bathing suits with sunscreen/towels
2 dresses
Accessories like necklaces, scarves, earrings etc.
Laptop or iPad

I recommend the My Disney experience app along with the Hilton or Marriott apps on your cell phones-this saves time with booking a last minute hotel or checking wait times at Disney for the rides. We already have our magi bands and have booked our fast passes and restaurant reservations in advance. This has saved us time with planning ahead. We also have checked in to our hotel so when we arrive they direct us to our room and we are off. Wilderness Lodge here we come!!! We are fortunate to have a friend who works for Disney and she has hooked us up with a fantastic vacation at a big discount. Gotta love that--

My final tip is this. I purchased a small plastic bin that will hold some essentials and non essentials you may need while traveling with kids. Inside I have a bottle of liquid advil, a thermometer, clorox wipes, small lysol, ammonium ad, band aids, chewable advil, hand sanitizer, small bath soap, makeup removers, lint roller, benadryl tablets, cortizone creme ( for bites) and anything else I think I may need. I don't want to be looking for a drug store on my vacation nor do I want to pay ridiculous prices for buying stuff at the hotel. Each and every time we have used many of these items and I am so glad I had them along. This bin fits nicely inside my "thirty one" beach bag. I have several packages of clorox wipes so I can sanitize the hotel TV remote, faucets, toilet and door knobs! I also purchased GAIN laundry detergents tabs in case I need to do laundry. A small bag with 10 tablets is about $4.

I hope you are all enjoying your summer. See you when we return.

Happy Summer!!!

Hello readers. It's been 6 months that I've been away from my blog. After my move last Summer and with starting a new school with my kids life just got really busy.

I hope this finds everyone well and off to a great start to Summer. We finished school May 24 and have already been to Maine on vacation. We have a few other trips planned this Summer, one to Hilton Head that we always enjoy.

I'll be back sometime soon with some things I love for summer. We just had a new AT Loft open here so I have enjoyed shopping there and finding some great summer items.

Be sure to check my Ebay items. I will be listing a bunch of great J Crew stuff today. My user id is  Maddyandme.
See you soon

J Crew Warehouse Sale

HI everyone, I attended the Warehouse Sale over the weekend. I am happy to report that I was in the first group that went in. It was well worth the early arrival to guarantee I'd have the opportunity to snag some top rate items. And score I did. I will share my experience later this week.

My kids off are off school tomorrow so we're enjoying a nice long weekend. The leaves are at peak here, the weather is gorgeous. Life is good.......

Sunday OOTD

Hello, I hope everyone has a great start to this week.  I love Monday's, I get charged up about getting things done on my to do list. 

Since I moved to the South I was surprised to find that churches here are so "casual" and "laid back" The first time I went to church everyone knew we were new because we were so dressed up. If church starts at 10 AM then people arrive at 10 AM, not before, really!! Dress is very casual, no suits, ties or dresses. I am so used to my traditional service at the Methodist church back in West Virginia that it's taken me awhile to adjust. Yesterday I decided to join the ranks and were my Loft jeans.  My outfit came together nicely. I had forgotten about purchasing this sweater when it first came out. I rec'd do many compliments.  It's such a conversation piece.

Before I share my OOTD please check out my latest Ebay offerings. I have some great items for sale right now.

Have a great week.

Worth Every Cent!!

Hello Lovely Ladies!!

I broke down and bought this beauty you see above. It's even BETTER in person than on the website. I wore it to church yesterday and everyone swooned over the sweater. It's so gorgeous and worth every cent I paid. It does run large, I could probably do a small but I bought my regular medium and it's fine. I had heard it ran a bit large but I am glad for the extra room so I can layer.

Another goody I recently found are these skorts for ATHLETA

Oh my gosh, this is the cutest skort ever and it's so widely popular they're on backorder until December 1. I have about 4 of them now and I wear them all during the week. Esp to school events with my cute Jambu shoes. This is the perfect piece for just about anything including vacations. If it gets wet it dries in no time flat. It's a skort so it's extra comfy. I highly recommend these.

I'll be back later in the week with some OOTD. I am being careful about my money these days. Other than the sweater and skorts I've "just said no" to everything else. I have enjoyed pulling out my vintage J Crew sweaters now that it's cooler and wearing those. Here's a sampling of what I have (and these look cute with the skort and a tee)I have avout 20 I've collected since 2006.

Have a great day

Happy Fall

Hello everyone, don't you just love the change of seasons? Where I live it's so cool and chilly at night. The slight breeze coming in the window makes for a great night's sleep. The crisp morning smell like Fall now. The leaves will be changing here soon and I can't wait.

 My outfit is anything but "fallish" but I am home all day cleaning and cooking so wanted to be comfy until I pick up my kids. Here is what I am wearing.....

J Crew Factory Rugby Shirt
J Crew Chino Shorts
J Crew Factory Bubble Necklace
ULTA lipcolor

I just found out that my girls have Thanksgiving week off, we've never had this week free before so I am excited to plan a little get away. We were thinking of Atlanta so we could visit the Atlanta Aquarium which I heard is great, also Buckhead for great shopping. If anyone can post a comment about things to do in Atlanta please feel free, I'd like some ideas.  Living in the South really affords some great get a ways to some neat places. I am also considering some other places as well, maybe somewhere really warm!!

Everyone have a great day.
