We made it through wedding weekend and my baby brother is successfully hitched! He and his beautiful bride are off on their honeymoon and we are getting ready for our Spring Break, which officially starts today! Sweet James was the ring bearer in the wedding and he took his role so seriously! I was so happy to get a chance to get some super cute pics before the ceremony started with everyone all spiffied up before Jordan had a meltdown and James was a sweaty dance floor mess!
James wore the grey rental tux to match the groomsmen and cutie pie Jordan was lucky to be gifted this gorgeous gold dress from our friends. We couldn’t be prouder of both of them! They are just too cute together! I’m often amazed at how good James is with her, given he’s just 7 years old and was an only child for a long time. He seems to intuitively know how to be kind to her and gives her lots of grace when he could be getting annoyed.
Okay, so onto Spring Break!!⛱ I must admit that over the weekend while I’ve been alternating between doing loads of laundry, packing, getting a car wash, running to the grocery store for snacks, returning the tux, cleaning up and doing more laundry and packing, I’m thinking . . . dang, it sure is a lot of work to go out of town to the beach for 3 days! Are we sure we don’t want to just stay home?! 😉
We’ll come back midweek for a day, and then go to Waco to visit Chip & Jo. I kid! I have no idea if they’ll be there, but Magnolia Market, here we come!
Blue Aviators | Swimsuit XS | Flip Flops
This gingham one has a removeable shoulder/neck strap and is so darling on.
Gingham Swimsuit (2) | old Pink Sunglasses (similar splurge | save) | Similar Hat
I have a bad habit of forgetting sunglasses, but these I already packed away.
You guys encouraged me to be bold and rock a two-piece, and I loved this one, but the smaller top I wanted to exchange it for isn’t here yet.

So much stuff to pack for just a couple days, right?! When is your Spring Break? Do you have any fun plans?
Loving the packing list and that shorts outfit!!
Hope that list helps!
Hi! Completely off topic for this post – but I found your media centre (IKEA hack with crown moulding) on Pinterest and MUST KNOW which pieces you used. Do you have a blog post of the original build? I could only find one about painting the background. It's gorgeous!! Thanks
Hi Kathryn, i'm not sure what you saw on Pinterest, but our media center was built in when we built our house. It's not an IKEA unit. That would be awesome though!
Thanks for the reply! My mistake based on what someone commented on Pinterest assumed it was IKEA. Gorgeous.
loving this post, love the packing list and loving clothes in all the pics:D
So much stuff to pack for just a few days!
Love the list! thank you!! am I spying black with navy here twice? (Shoes with lovely navy dress & hat brim with adorable swim suit) Or is it just my iPad? If so can you explain the "rules?" Are they both a neutral?
Yes, definitely mix navy and black! The dress is more blue, but the swimsuit is navy.
Will you be doing a post on what you did (where you stayed/ate) in Galveston? We're relatively new to TX and I'm thinking of surprising my hubs with a little trip for his birthday in April. Would love some tips!!
Hi Katherine, I did a review with that info and you can read it here: https://www.honeywerehome.com/2017/03/guide-to-spring-break-in-galveston.html
