10 for 10 #31Days2016

Hey hey hey. 

It's Day 10 of our 31 Days of Blogging and we are finishing up our vacation. Are you sick of hearing about beaches and sunshine yet? SORRY! But it's sort of hard to think about other things when you're in vacation mode. Soon we will be back in the cold, wintry, Christmas-y, December-y spirit...aka real life mode...but for now, we are making vacation last while we can. 

So, today we will tell you the top 10 things that we will miss the most about vacation. Here they are...in no particular order: 

1) Dirty hair + a hat = totally acceptable at all times. 

2) Drinking starts at 11am and steadily continues until bed time. 

3) A swimsuit and coverup are the only clothes you need...(and it's totally okay to wear the same thing every day...)

4) Card games and movies are the post dinner ritual...(we mean PARTYING AND GOING HARD, YEAHHH WE'RE YOUNG!!!....but really, cards and movies, guys.)

5) Acceptable lunches = Piña Coladas + Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels

6) No makeup, we repeat, NO MAKEUP

7) Reading for 5 hours a day

8) Blasting your headphones while walking the beach so you don't have to talk to strangers

9) Little to no internet access which means little to no responsibility

10) SUN-BEACH-POOL-DRINK-SUN-BEACH-POOL-DRINK-SUN-BEACH-POOL-DRINK

(Okay...we thought of 1 more because we're over achievers):

11)AVOCADOS ALMOST AS BIG AS YOUR FACE.

Okay, friends. Tomorrow it's back to reality, oh there goes gravity. 

But for today...we say goodbye and send you lots of sunshine-y vibes. 

Until tomorrow...here are some more pics of you lovely, fine, friendly folks. Much love, j&k

Fun In The Sun

So...as per Jill's last post, we thoroughly enjoyed our brief time in the sun a couple days ago in Jacksonville, FL. It seemed like the perfect little retreat after some pretty chilly temperatures in the North East. Also, that part of tour always seems busier than normal. With Jill's family being from that area, I had a friend visiting and our friends from college living in that area, the time up there seemed packed with loads of fun & busy days(ps. I did some very tourist-y things which I'll have to blog about later.) Totally worth every second but I think that's what made Jacksonville such a simple restful haven. We walked the beach tirelessly, strolled cute side streets & sipped coffee on patios at little local gems. We also had a little tour party out under the stars...complete with a kick butt s'more station. We played games, drank some drinks & ended the night with our feet in the water. It was dreamy. Here are a couple pics that encapsulate my love affair with Jacksonville :) -kate-
