Hope you all had a wonderful Labor day weekend. We had a really nice time enjoying the send off to summer and of course we are now left with a case of the blues. Please tell me I’m not the only one struggling with summer coming to close.
This weekend kicked off with me getting to have a little me time and try a new homemade mask that is part of a campaign I’m working on with Poland Springs. I would really appreciate you heading over to check out other ways that people celebrate naturally.
Friday evening we headed out to the beach for a little picnic and kite flying:
Saturday we were up bright and early thanks to Hudson’s little alarm clock. It seemed like everyone was out of town because the roads were empty and the home improvements stores were like a ghost town. We headed out to find some privacy screens for our garage cans.
Afterwards we were feeling oh so lame that we were going to work on house projects instead of having fun labor day plans so we left the projects aside and went into Brooklyn to go to a little BBQ and then headed into the Seaport for a bite at Smorgasbar by Brooklyn Flea.
The Seaport is now full of yummy pop up shops with loads of food and treats like Magnolia Bakery:
If you are in the area you simply must stop by and get yourself a Lizzmonade. It’s a customizable lemonade were you can pick from a variety of sweeteners or none at all and loads of fruit options to get mixed in.
Hudson enjoyed having one and doing cheers with his Aunt Ximena:
We also popped into a candy shop to pick up some sour belts which are a favorite in our household:
We ended the evening with picking up a super cool monkey balloon animal for Hudson and checking out the passing boats:
Sunday we had a family BBQ to attend so I put my cell away and tried to enjoy it and not snap constant pics, but I was able to get a family shot of us before the BBQ started:
On Monday we decided to host a little lunch at our house for our immediate family. The day was pretty gray and dreary, but we still enjoyed a nice meal.
One of perks of hosting is getting some pretty blooms from your Daddy:
Happy Tuesday All!
