How I Spent My... Weekend

Last Saturday we attended a wedding for some of our friends at Sherwood Country Club [the brick + white buildings at the venue reminded me of SMU!]. It was a beautiful setting for a beautiful couple and makes me wish we had more weddings to go to this year because it was such a fun night! Hope you all are having a great week and have some fun Labor Day plans... Friday night I'm hosting a wine tasting for some of my girlfriends and then we are headed to Santa Barbara for our annual family trip! XOXO

How I Spent My... Trip To Hayward, WI

From Maui we headed over to Hayward, WI in honor of Hudson's great grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary! Everyone surprised them with two pontoon boats for a day out on the lake - they were decorated Hawaiian style and everyone dressed in festive gear to make it an event... gotta love a fun theme! It was so nice for Hudson to finally meet his great aunts, uncles and cousins! More pics from both trips on my Instagram under nsguidetostyle. Have a great weekend! XOXO

How I Spent My... Vacation In Maui

We spent the beginning of August in Maui for our first big family vacation just the three of us and it was awesome! The best part was getting to spend so much time together and Hudson had an absolute blast playing in the pool and at the beach. We stayed at the Four Seasons in Wailea and I can't say enough good things about the hotel and the staff - they were so accommodating and the resort was beautiful!  Some favorite activities were early morning breakfast as a family, walking along the Wailea beach path, drinks and lunch at the pool, lunch at Mama's Fish House [approximately a 45 minute drive], sunset dinner at Spago [their drinks + food were my favorite of the trip!] and a relaxing birthday massage in one of spa's outdoor huts. We also really enjoyed a casual dinner at this great gluten free pizza place, Maui Brick Oven Pizza [thanks for the rec Natasha!] and gelato twice at Ono Gelato. The rest of our trip to Hayward, WI will be up soon but in the meantime check out more photos on my Instagram under nsguidetostyle. XOXO
