Lake Havasu, Arizona, USA

At least twice a year, we find ourselves venturing out to the beautiful Arizona desert oasis of Lake Havasu. Known to many as a popular spot for Spring Breakers, this high energy lake never disappoints. A few days of sun, water and relaxation is always in store for us here. Plus the city is home to the real London Bridge..... how awesome is that??
Our absolute favorite place to stay while visiting is The Nautical Beachfront Resort. There are not many places that can boast a beach front area on Lake Havasu so the Nautical has a very coveted spot. We always request the Beach Suites on the 1st floor for our stay. Trust me, these are the prime rooms. You walk out of your hotel door and are right onto the beach. The Nautical also houses one of the most fun bars in the city, The Turtle Beach Bar. Grab yourself one of the drinks on the "Bucket List". They come in a huge bucket and a ton of long straws to share. The infinity pool which looks over the lake is beautiful and the 18 hole golf course will not disappoint. They are also pet friendly (which you know I am all about that!).
We often tend to escape the large crowds during the day and find a secluded cove on the lake. Here we eat, drink, relax and play ladder ball or corn hole. Pure relaxation I tell ya!

Best Summer Pool Floats



Summer is officially here! Maybe I am so surprised because time freaking flies in my life. Fact, I haven't even blogged in 2 months. I started a new job and have been busier than ever. My husband had to take my computer with him to work for an important training event, so I haven't had it for the last 4 weeks!!! I finally have it for less than 24 hours while he is home visiting so I NEEDED to post, for my sanity and my creative sake. I was honestly surprised how much I missed it. 

As we all know from browsing Instagram and Pinterest lately, that no summer pool party is complete without the raddest pool floaties. Well lovelies, here is your complete guide to which floaties you need and where you need to get them.

Have an awesome time in the pool!

XOXO

River Weekend in Parker, AZ


One of our favorite spring/summer pastimes is driving 4 hours east to Arizona for some fun on the Colorado River. This particular trip we stayed in Parker. One interesting fact about the Colorado River is that it lines the California and Arizona border. When visiting Parker, you can be on the California side or the Arizona side. We stayed on the California side at a complex called Rio Del Colorado. We reserved a camping spot for a super cheap rate and enjoyed the warm sun, cold margaritas and amazing company!

A Day Date in Laguna Beach

Devon and I actually had a day off together a few weekends ago without any other commitments. We definitely took advantage and escaped to Laguna Beach for a day date. The weather felt like it was summer so the day was beyond perfect. 
We started out having brunch at The Cliff. This outdoor restaurant has tables overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean..... it was way dreamy. 
We then headed to the Montage, an incredible hotel whose beach is actually open to the public. Montage Beach is now officially my favorite California beach! I felt as if we were in the Caribbean. The water was turquoise, clear and warm. The entire grounds of the hotel are covered in cactus, aloe and bougainvillea plants. I can't believe I found paradise less than an hour away from my house.
