#CrusingCarnival: Curacao

Today begins a few photo heavy post about our amazing Carnival cruise! We had an awesome time and I've been so anxious to tell you all about it. I'm going to start with our ports, because they were simply amazing. 

Our first stop was Curacao. It's an island in the southern Caribbean, just off the coast of Venezuela. The city was so colorful and the water was gorgeous.

We didn't know what to expect, really, when we took our first cruise last year. We knew we wanted to get out and actually see the ports this time, so we booked the Sea and See excursion. The first part was a submarine ride, which made me a little woozy by the end! It was so worth it, though! Callan chanted "I found Nemo!" basically the whole time and Cooper took some wild video on his phone that would make anyone get sea sick.

The next part, was a bus tour. We saw all the colorful buildings, historic landmarks and the Curacao liquor factory.

After that, we had a little more time to walk around on our own. The boys played instruments in a reggae band and got some souvenirs. I would love to go back and spend more time in Curacao!

I had every intention to consolidate the ports together, but there are far too many pictures. I can't wait to show you more ports and all the fun stuff we did on the ship!

Floral and White {Fashion}

I've worn these white snake embossed skinny jeans all summer, but somehow, haven't worn them here yet! I love, love denim from JustFab!

I could handle white jean season for quite a bit longer. How is Labor day so soon?! 

Another staple piece in my summer wardrobe, is my new monogram necklace from 9th & Elm. It goes with everything! 9th & Elm has a big selection of pieces from different sellers. A perfect spot to shop for a gift!

Back to School with Rack Room Shoes

Who's ready to send their precious babies back to school? Um, not me. I mean, I do get to look at these faces all day and I'm so not ready for any time apart!

This morning, I woke up my sweet little ones at 5:30am to head to Rack Room Shoes. We went on the morning news with them to talk about back to school style and their annual Shoe That Fits Campaign. (I wrote about it here, so you can check it out!)

We got all the back to school shoes this year from Rack Room. My absolute favorites are these cute Nikes. May or may not be because they're Met colors!

And where there is one pair, there must be 2. It's the way it has to be right now, since we're all about imitating big bro!

Back to school clothes are a little weird here in North Carolina. I mean, it's going to feel like summer for another 2 months, so I really don't see the need to stock pile long sleeves and pants just yet. I did get just a couple new things so far, including these cute tees from Young and Rad

Callan's little shirt was exactly on point with his behavior at 6am. He was pretty good, but he did say poop on live TV and act like a 2 year old boy. Guess I can't blame him!

"Mom! Look how high I can jump in these shoes!"

Of course there were chocolate sprinkle donuts for good behavior. What kind of mom would I be if there wasn't?

The boys tried on a ton of shoes today. Cooper wanted like 5 pairs and didn't understand why he didn't exactly need them. I'm one to talk to him about how many pairs of shoes he has! They did each get a (matching!) pair, though. I gave in when they were chanting that they looked like robots. They're actually pretty cool. Here are the ones Cooper picked, if he needed a new pair of shoes every day. 




Take your little ones to Rack Room. I guarantee you'll find back to school shoes to make you and them happy!
