Happy Friday. We were so blessed to have two of our boys and their lovely ladies with us for vacation even if it was just for the first few days. Our other son who had moved to Baltimore a couple months ago as you may remember was so bummed that he and his girl could not be there. Hoping to have all 6 next year!

1. Beach
Since our condo is right on the beach, of course there are going to be beach days! Day one was the perfect day out there!

Swim  Top HERE (I loved it)
2. St. Ambrose Cellars
Mr. Nine and I discovered this place a couple years ago and it is the neatest outdoor brewery and winery with the big red barn showcasing live music. It also has great spots for photo opps.

3. Parade
Finally! The past two years, the 4th of July parade was canceled due to Covid and road construction! While it wasn’t quite as big as it has been in years past, this is one of my favorite things in our favorite town!

4. Italian and Ice cream Night

The night of the Fourth of July, we had a lovely Italian meal at a new Italian restaurant in town and afterwards we went to an ice cream shop that we walked by gazillions of times and had never been in it all these years! What were we thinking, the Scoop is just adorable!

More on this outfit 
next week..entire loo under $75!

I was hoping #5 would be Fireworks. Sadly, the fireworks got rained out and our kids had to leave the morning of the fifth. Mr. Nine and I watched them that night, but it just wasn’t the same.

Here we are ..sad after they left


5. Misc. Fun


My beloved Cozy Earth has a new collection, the bamboo ultra-soft collection. I’m taking it to the streets as these pieces were meant to be worn out and about not just cozy at home! And I have a generous code for you for 40% off, I old so much Cozy Earth and I just love it! One of my Fav Vacay outfits!
