CAPE MAY

somehow over the past two years, sleeping in six states and two other countries, we forgot to take a family vacation - just the three of us. chris had the brilliant idea of a throwing together a quicky mini-vacation to cape may and it was exactly what we needed.

we loved the beach town. it was less jersey shore and more southern quaint, and just a 2.5 hour drive from our house we couldn't have asked for more.

oh, and we ate ice cream every day. because it was vacation and that's what we harmon's do.

ADULTS LIKE JELLO SHOTS TOO

Orange slice jello shots

Orange slice jello shots
you've probably seen throughout the years that i'm a big fan of spiked jello. i've been known to bring jello shots to housewarming parties, made vodka orange slices for a BBQ in 2010, tried a pineapple version in 2011 for our luau and even made adult watermelon wedges for nina's bachelorette party last year.

so when our good friends and neighbors told me about their joint birthday party over fourth of july weekend i thought it was the perfect time to revisit spiked orange jello slice shots.

needless to say, they were a hit. at least until the next morning when the hangover kicked in.

GRANDMA AND HER GIRLS

grandma and her girls
it's been a crazy few weeks (when is it not?) so i haven't gotten around to posting for a bit, but we just had the best visit from my mom, sister and two nieces. they spent a full week with us and the whole trip flew by faster than i could have ever imagined. 

the girls taught hazel all about princesses, dress up, and staying up late to watch movies, and my mom squeezed in as many hugs as possible. we miss them so much already, but so glad they were able to come.

THE VIEW FROM 34

This is 34
this year on my birthday i decided to treat myself.

i dropped hazel off at daycare, went on a quick run around the park then headed straight to the beach to relax in the sand by myself. i followed that up with an ice cream cone on the boardwalk and a pedi and BOOM - pretty much the best, most relaxing birthday i've had in a while.

looking good 34. real good.
