    Around Town

    A Tuesday Treat at Popbar

    Juliet’s favorite thing in life right now is a “PopPop”, so when we were invited to check out Popbar’s newest location at The Mall at Wellington Green, I just knew I couldn’t turn it down. I made the unfortunate mistake of telling Jules that morning that we would be getting a PopPop, so that is all I heard on our drive there, over, and over, and over again. But, we managed to arrive as soon as they opened, and from the look on Juliet’s face, the wait was worth it. IMG_9445IMG_9432IMG_9431Juliet went crazy for the sprinkles, chocolate, and assorted colors of gelato and yogurt, while I got to enjoy the fact that they use only the freshest, all-natural ingredients when making each pop. FullSizeRenderIMG_9434IMG_9437IMG_9441IMG_9438IMG_9439IMG_9435

    Sure, a yogurtpop is probably not going to top any lists of lunch options for toddlers, but for us, on this special Tuesday, it was the perfect treat.

    Thank you, Popbar, for making Juliet’s PopPop dreams come true.


    Colorado and the new normal

    So I may have lied in my last post. I said that we were back, and we were not back. But this time, I swear, we’re back, we’re home, (well at least until our trip to Mexico), and I am going to do my best to get back into this blog.

    You see, not only have we been traveling a lot this summer, but there have been a few changes around here that have also made me want to sleep any chance I can kept me busier that usual.

    While we were in North Carolina, two things happened. My husband took on additional responsibilities with his company, and Anniston became one of the most difficult babies ever. This combination gets worse because the additional responsibilities my husband has taken on require him to travel at least one week out of every month. So, we basically spend a week at home trying to figure out how to get Anniston to sleep or finish a bottle, then we either travel or my husband goes away for a week, and we start back at square one.

    But, we only have one trip left and I am determined to figure all of this out. I have so much to talk about, from the miracle fat suit that has Anniston sleeping through the night, to the insanely easy cure for cradle cap… there are many posts in the works, promise!

    But now, to the Colorado part…

    We spent all of last week in Vail with my husband’s family, and it was everything I thought Vail would be. The mountains, the flowers, the expensive fur coats, it was perfect, and we had the best time.

    We survived the four hour plane ride by giving Juliet just a little bit of Benadryl. We had to, we got her up at 5am for the flight and she has actually never napped anywhere but her crib or carseat, so it was our only option. And it worked.IMG_8320

    Then we spent the rest of the week enjoying everything Colorado. We hiked in Beaver Creek, spent hours in Vail, shopped in Breckenridge, and made sure to hit up every playground we saw for Juliet. It was a great week with family and the perfect break from the Florida heat.
