#lazybaby on the go with @LittlePeanutOTG

Like all first-time parents, I spent the week leading up to our first trip with Margot wondering how the hell we were going to function in France without every single thing we’ve gotten used to having on hand for her at home. I’d wake in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, shaking over what we would do without our changing table and nappy bin and bassinet and boppy and THIS SERENITY STAR?! I kid. Mostly. That Serenity Star is awesome. Luckily, Le Majestic made our lives generally easier, but unfortunately, once the hubs’s conference started, we relocated halfway through the week to a hotel that did pretty much the complete opposite. That’s…

because we cannes // lazy baby at le majestic

We made it! We took our 8 week old on a plane, flew to another country, spent a week on the French Riviera, and here we are: back on the other side. Older, wiser, and a little more confident as parents. I have plenty to share about the logistics of our first trip as a family of three, but first! I must sing the praises of the Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic. [ photo via barrière hotels ] Despite getting out the door a bit later than we’d planned, Margot was a dream from the start of our travel day to the moment we touched down in Nice. She slept the entire flight, and I learned…

foodie break // california love at @SaltsCure

One of the best perks of my “real life” job is that I occasionally get to travel, and more often than not, to cities that I love. Back in February, when the east coast cold had me feeling blue, I was happy to escape to Los Angeles for a long weekend, even though I would be working for the majority of my trip. With work events on both Friday and Saturday, I didn’t have too much down-time to enjoy LA, but when traveling for work, I always try to squeeze in at least one or two moments of “me” time to explore the area or enjoy a nice meal. Coincidentally, one of my best friends,…

making & taking memories // a lomo’instant giveaway

This may surprise you, but when it comes to travel souvenirs, we’re actually not huge shoppers. Though we love to prepare for a getaway with a shopping trip or two, once we arrive, we’d rather splurge on wining & dining. Instead of destination-branded tchotchkes, we’d rather bring our memories home in the form of photos — something that’s probably pretty obvious if you’ve been reading here for awhile. Unfortunately, while we always have the best intentions to print out said photos to adorn our walls… we rarely do, and they tend to get buried away in our computers (or our blog!). Enter: Lomography. You may have noticed this quirky little camera in our recent Style…

the [extremely] lazy girl’s guide to 48 hrs in DC

It’s hard to believe that over a year has gone by since Sean and I got married over pizza and wine on a cold January afternoon. So much has happened over the last year, and yet, it still seems like yesterday. Our first year of marriage has been filled with more good times that we could have ever hoped for, and as our first anniversary got closer and closer, we knew we wanted to take some time, if only a few days, to go somewhere together and celebrate. Just like the days before our wedding, Sean was called away in late January for a work conference. It was Dallas then, and this year, it was…
