A Day in Atlanta – Georgia Aquarium Adventure

First, are we friends on Instagram? If we’re not! Get to it. You’re missing out on all the live shares of my adventures. Like this trip to the Georgia Aquarium. Yes! It all happens there first and then I come to The Blog to spill details on everything. You can find me under Thirtyminusone_blog. 😉

So, last month I spent over three weeks in Georgia. It’s where my family lives and was home for a few years and where my husband and I met. We still have friends there and love going back to get away from the city life – ok, I do live in the suburbs but it’s a complete scenery change.

While I didn’t have any big plans for our time there. The Georgia Aquarium was a must. Why? Because it’s simply amazing! And because we have been taking our oldest since she was little. Now that she’s six, I thought she would appreciate it all a little more. And because our two year old is more aware of her surroundings, loves ocean creatures and I thought she would also enjoy it.

My husband stayed behind because he had to work, and the day that he flew into Atlanta, is the day that we choose for our adventure. After picking him up from the airport, we headed to the Aquarium. Buying the tickets was a seamless process, we bought them online which came with a savings; these were then emailed to me and easily scanned for us to access the Aquarium.

A Day in Atlanta

I was pleasantly surprised with the Dolphin exhibit. This was a new one for us, since we had not visited in a little over a year. Now, the tropical exhibit is hands down my favorite – it has always been. It’s just so colorful! And being able to talk about it with my six year old made it a little more special. She gets me, and was as fascinated as I was.

We spent a few hours there and then walked through Centennial Park before heading to Hard Rock Café for a bite. A few years back while in London, we visited what was the first Hard Rock Café ever, and since started collecting their glasses. Each time we visit a new city we try to stop by, get a bite and take a souvenir glass with us.

In all honesty, we didn’t do a whole lot, but it was the perfect family fun day. Now, if you’re ever in the Atlanta area, you have a few activities that you can add to your itinerary. You’re Welcome! 😉

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale Picks

Hey, you! Happy Hump Day. We made it to the middle of the week. Or as we say in Spanish, el hombligo de la semana!! Instead of sharing a look with you I wanted to take advantage that Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is going on to share a few of my favorite picks for this coming fall.

Though I don’t shop at Nordstrom as often as I’d like – because let’s face it I can only afford items that go on sale… I do ALWAYS have items on my wish-list. While browsing I found some cute blouses, cardis, handbags and shoes. All items – except for one – are under $100 and most are unde $50. Go ahead and take a peek.

Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale Blouses

  1. GEO PATTERN SQUARE SCARF – This scarf is perfect for the fall, when it’s not cold enough for a coat.
  2. V-NECK PULLOVER – This pullover looks so comfortable, I’d probably live in it all fall and winter.
  3. HIGH TIE NECK BLOUSE – I love the color and print on this blouse to transition from summer to fall.
  4. OFF THE SHOULDER BLOUSE – Because long sleeve off shoulder blouses are totally doable in the fall.
  5. RIB STITCH CARDIGAN – Cardigans are a must, because they’re so easy to style.
  6. MOTO JACKET – I don’t own a leather jacket (yet) and this one is the best I’ve seen by far. It may actually make it to my closet.

Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale Shoes and Handbags

  1. FAUX LEATHER TOTE – BURGUNDY – Not only the color is gorg but the look at how spacious this is.
  2. BARRIS BLOCK HEEL BOOTIE – Loved the suede look on this, plus it’s neutral color.
  3. FAREN BOOTIE – Flat booties are also a must for any closet. These you could rock from summer to fall.
  4. STRIPE LEATHER TOTE – It’s all about totes, because you can use the extra space. Am I right?
  5. ANKLE WRAP FLAT – I love flats and these are so pretty, from the detail to the color.
  6. PRASATA BOOTIE – I love the two tone on these booties, the cut and details.
  7. LEATHER CROSSBODY BAG – though I love totes it’s also good to have a smaller bag.

I hope you have found my round up useful. If you can’t take advantage of the N Sale now, just PIN the images so that you can bookmark these items and buy them at a later time. 😉

Distressed High Waisted Shorts & Our Galveston Beach Adventure

Houston = Home! For six years now and I love it here! Oh the city life – though I really live in the suburbs. 😉 But it’s nice to have a major city close by, and even better to have a beach near by. I will admit that while Galveston Beach is not the most sought after beach location and its water may not be crystal clear. I absolutely love taking a trip our there. Just breathing in that ocean air brings back so many good memories.

Distressed High Waisted Shorts & Our Galveston Beach Adventure

So, I try to go as often as we can. While, I am more of a beach love, my husband would rather go to a lake or river. On this trip we agreed on the beach because the girls get to build sand castles, run along the shore, and play with the waves. Life doesn’t get better than this. 🙂

Our Galveston Beach Adventure

Galveston also has a lot to offer, great beach shops – in case that you forget any beach necessities -restaurants offering delicious food, ice cream shops, the pier, and much more… Some of my favorite places are The Spot, Saltgrass, Shrimp N Stuff, and Frios Gourmet Pops, just to name a few.

Little Black Romper

My love for Rompers is as strong as my love for Peplum this summer! I may very well own over 10 rompers. But this little black romper is my favorite.

Little Black Dress

SHOP LOOK HERE

Minimal but it has all I need; neutral color, accent buttons, pockets – I love dresses and rompers with pockets.

The best part, is that it goes with EVERYTHING! I picked this one up at Forever 21 and have found some similar ones that you can check out and buy below, so keep scrolling.

Ps. On repeat are my new favorite earrings from Beck’d, the handmade earrings shop that I found while visiting Columbus, GA. Make sure to check it out.
