It’s been awhile since I caught up with everyone, hasn’t it? Last week I shared some of my favorite places to eat at while in Montreal and I shared all of my favorite makeup to travel with but since my Montreal trip, it’s been pretty quiet around blog land.
When I arrived back home from Montreal everything got pretty busy and the blog suffered a bit. I know all my blogger friends know how hard it can be sometimes to keep up with posts when there is so much going on in non-blog/real life!
Anyway, so what have I been up to for the last couple of months? Well, I said goodbye to my twenties and hello to thirties. I guess I can no longer call myself a 20 something-year-old now can I? Age is just a number though, especially when sometimes I still think I’m 19 in my mind so turning 30 is all good.
My husband, parents, and cousins threw me an amazing thirtieth birthday party. The party itself wasn’t a surprise but all the decor was. I pretty much just picked a color theme – black and gold – and they went with it.

I traveled to Minneapolis for a work trip for a couple days in May. Truthfully, I didn’t really love it there. My hotel was in the middle of nowhere and there wasn’t much around. I visited the Mall of America with some fellow co-workers but it really is just a big mall. Once you’ve seen one mall, you’ve seen them all. I was looking forward to finding some local places to have dinner at but most places nearby were the same chains we have in New York. Maybe it’s just where I stayed though. I’m sure there are nicer places in the city and I just didn’t have time to explore more.

I’m still trying to Marie Kondo my life and I spent a weekend cleaning out my closet. I donated most items to Big Brothers Big Sisters and some I’ve listed for sale on Poshmark. If the items don’t sell soon though, I’m probably just going to donate them. I want all the extra clutter out of my house asap!
Every weekend it’s been graduation parties and birthday parties with family and I’m not complaining one bit! The hubby and I have had a college graduation party, a high school graduation party, my best friend’s thirtieth birthday party, a 1st birthday party, a sprinkle and we have parties almost every weekend through July!
Can you believe, every summer I never ever visit the beach regularly? Summers are so short in New York and I do spend lots of time outside enjoying the weather but I never actually go to the beach. So a couple weekends ago the hubby and I drove around looking at different beaches to find our “perfect” one and we may just have found it.
From now until Labor Day weekend, this is where I’ll be every weekend…hopefully.
So that’s been my last couple of months. It’s been filled with parties and spending time with family and friends and it’s been absolutely wonderful.
