just another manic saturday

it’s been awhile since i just wrote about your average day… and honestly, i would do it more often if i could find the time, but this past saturday is one of those “average days” that i felt especially compelled to share–or at least document so that i can always look back and laugh.

last week i was sick…totally my fault. alexa got a stomach bug and i let her sleep with me and then i picked it up. stomach bug + pregnant = not a good place to be. i pretty much slept/tossed and turned for two days straight. thankfully by saturday i was on the mend–even though i was in a grumpy mood from lack of good sleep and overall achey pregnancy issues. we had a pretty busy saturday planned. alexa and i were going to the upper westside to go to a really close friend’s birthday party–an all girls hair, makeup and nails extravaganza that alexa was super excited about. hayden and nate were going to spend the afternoon on bikes and then we were all going to meet up and go out to dinner. simple, right? well… here is how it all played out…  Continue Reading…

tis’ the season for roadtrips… and snacks!

July 13, 2015

Roadtrip lxp 1
after almost 10 years of living in new york city we have finally taken the leap into being nyc car owner… some people shudder at the thought of this–we once did! the truth is i was the one fighting for it, specifically during the summer months. as most of my readers know, i am a bit travel obsessed and the thought of being trapped in the city for 3 hot months seriously stresses me out.

as far as planning for road trips, i still treat them very much like planning for a trip on an airplane. it’s all about preparation–which means, its all about snacks and technology! Continue Reading…

the first hike!

June 21, 2015

when nate and i first started dating we were pretty into hiking… he even proposed to me on a hiking trail! since we have lived in new york–and had kids–hiking has sadly fallen off our list of regular activities. this past memorial day weekend we were trying to figure out how to spend the day and we decided to take the kids on their first real hike! so, we packed some lunches, hopped in our zip car and headed out of the city… Continue Reading…

hey there miami

it has been a minute since i blogged… ok, a lot of minutes. the truth is i have been crazy… busier than i’ve been in a long time. that is the trouble with moonlighting as a blogger… pulling doubles isn’t always possible–especially with two kids! i have a lot going on and more that i will share at some point soon, but for the time being i thought i would post these fun pictures from our miami adventures a couple weeks back. we just posted a behind the scenes story on ivankatrump.com (see it here!), so i thought i would post some of my outtakes… Continue Reading…

hole-in-one! #trumpgolf

May 25, 2015

while neither nate nor i are golfers, we decided we should give the kids the opportunity to try their hand at the putting greens–we were at trump national doral afterall (home to the blue monster golf course). they got all dolled up in golf apparel too, which was pretty adorable.

alexa and hayden’s personalities really come out in competitive environments. alexa is determined and focused. she is actually quite competitive and gets pretty upset if she meet her target! hayden, on the other hand, is super chill. he is actually a bit more athletically inclined, but he is very relaxed and enjoys making sure others are watching him as much as he enjoys playing the game.

work + play in miami!

May 24, 2015

it is a rare occasion that i get to fully blend work, family and a little vacation together, but a week ago i was able to do just that! as the creative director at ivanka trump i am often working on photo shoots for the brand. katie (the art director on my team, and one of my super close friends) and i decided that trump national doral was calling our name for our summer campaign shoot. if you follow me, ivanka or katie on instagram than you probably know that nate does most of our photo shoots (i feel pretty lucky to be married to such a talented photographer that i get to work with on the job as well). since we all would be down in miami for the shoot i thought i would take the opportunity to bring the kids and our nanny, norma, as well.

nate and i have been talking about our next big travel plans a lot… we are debating between instanbul, bali or rio… with the kids!! i know it sounds aggressive, but we love to travel and our kiddos are pretty good at it. i’ve been strolling down memory lane and i thought i would post about our trip to croatia in 2009… Continue Reading…

kayaks, starfish + s’mores #PuertoRico

February 16, 2015

this is the last post to wrap up our adventures in puerto rico. it’s funny because as i am typing this hayden keeps asking when can we go back. it goes without saying that the kids absolutely LOVED this trip. it also probably has something to do with the fact that it is 7 degrees here in nyc and they just want to be outside playing. can’t really blame them.

our last day in puerto rico was full of activities… we really packed in the most we could while we were there…

the day started off with the kids’ first fishing lesson. they were really into it… i had forgotten how fun fishing could be–and how hard!

our vacation in puerto rico was one of those where you wish you could extend it for another week–at least! it might have had something to do with the warm weather and sunshine… or just the general good spirit the kids were in the whole time because all we did was play with them all day long. it was pretty magical…
