So if you thought that taking a twenty month old boy and a German Short-Haired Pointer dog (i.e. crazy high energy) with you to your family photo session, I might tell you to rethink your decision and just leave one of them at home;) We had family pictures this week. It was a gorgeous setting, along the east coast of Barbados. We arrived on-time without getting lost (this is big, trust me), the weather was fantastic, and my prone-to-frizz hair maintained a look of normalcy throughout. But then we had a dog and a toddler boy, neither of whom wanted to sit still and/or was always facing the wrong direction. I joked with our photographer that I’ll be excited to see the pictures with the random dog and baby walking through our family pictures.
One of the best things about heading back to the states each summer for several weeks is that I get to try a ton of new products and pull together a fabulous things I’m loving list! I scour Amazon Prime for weeks before I arrive, checking out the latest and greatest, and if it doesn’t have incredibly positive reviews then I’m not interested. As soon as I arrive, I also head to BuyBuy Baby, REI and the Container Store, to name a few, and I walk aisle after aisle looking, gawking, and drooling over the best new products and inventions. It’s every product-queen’s fantasy!
