You guys. I want to move to Florida. We just moved to Charlotte a year ago, but palm trees on the horizon are calling my name! I think we may just have to plant palmetto trees on the borders of our yard here for now ha!
We had so much fun visiting family for a few days in sunny Florida. Although, it was warmer in Charlotte then it was there for those few days. We were battling some serious wind. I don’t think I really even needed to apply sunscreen, because I was constantly in a jacket or wrapped up in a towel. But Hallen had a blast playing with all of her cousins! And luckily they were inland just a bit, so no crazy wind.
Our drive down, Hazel was a hot mess! It turned into a 12 hour trip, and both of the girls only slept for maybe an hour of that! Luckily, Hallen could just watch TV. Hazel just hates the car. On the way back, I ended up pumping a couple times and just bottle feeding her in the carseat. It made it a lot more bearable!
Both of the girls were completely worn out the entire time. Naps ad bedtime were just nonexistent. But Hazel slept her first 7 hour stretch while we were there. She should have after staying awake for 10 hours in the car, right?! And she slept poolside a couple times in the “nice” ocean breeze!
Look at those sweet lips!!
And I basically lived in this dress from Bun Maternity while I was there. It was so easy for nursing on the go (since we always were going somewhere). It has snaps on both shoulders, so you can just pull it down from the straps, and there’s still a small panel underneath, so you feel covered!
Hallen’s cute dress is from a small shop that I adore, Gentle Adeline. She kept twirling and twirling! And of course, she had to wear her Mini Melissa Mickey & Minnie shoes. She loves that she can put them on all by herself (Ms. Independent)!
But she was also sassy as heck while we were down there! Hence, that last photo haha! Toddlers aren’t always sweet and cute if that’s what you were thinking. She definitely gives me a run for my money! Y’all…how do you make it through this sassy phase?! Some days, she literally wakes up with an attitude! Before I asked her to take a photo with me, she was running around having fun, but as soon as I asked her to hold my hand…you would have thought I took away a bowl full of chocolate!
BUT … all that to say, we had an amazing time. Love my sassy, independent toddler! And there’s definitely more to come from our time in Florida 🙂 Happy Friday Eve, friends! xxx
