Moms Just Wanna...Get a Break | 24 hours in Lido Key, FL

We all know that being a mom isn't easy.  I had been feeling really overwhelmed lately and needed a break in the worst way.  My sweet husband watched our girls and I headed to Lido Key, Florida with a couple of girlfriends.  We were only gone for twenty-four hours and it was just what we needed.

Even with a storm strolling in, we had a blast and you couldn't beat the view we had.  Shout out to Holiday Inn for accommodating us to a Gulf view room and delicious snacks.  The hotel is gorgeous and the perfect location for heading to the beach or walking over to St. Armands Circle for shopping, restaurants and spas.  Our room had that coastal feel that you want when vacationing on the water and we couldn't get over the chairs in the lobby.

There are so many incredible restaurants in St. Armands Circle that it was hard to decide where to go.  We stumbled upon The Terrace at Surf Shack and ended up staying there all night.  They had live music which was extremely entertaining and the food was delicious.  They have a large taco menu and we all tried different ones.  I had the Key West Cuban Scallops and Bangin Shrimp tacos.  Sooo good!  And of course, in true pregnancy fashion, I ended the night with turtle ice cream from Kilwans.  Yum!

I love that we didn't have to drive far to feel like we actually got time away from our kids.  I came back home feeling refreshed and recharged.  We stayed out late without the consequence of having to get up early.  It was nice to sleep in, drink my coffee hot and take a walk along the beach. 

This would also be the perfect spot for a romantic getaway and I definitely plan to go back with my husband.

Thing to do Tampa Bay | AR Workshop- ST. Pete

If you haven't head of AR Workshop in St. Pete, you are missing out.  It is the cutest boutique workshop and the perfect combination of power tools and DIY creativity.

I had the opportunity to visit AR Workshop for a blog event in January (I know that was 4 months ago #pregnantlife #momlife) and had an absolute blast! 

The space is gorgeous and it's such a fun set-up, including a drink bar!  I had been wanting something for our kitchen and found/made the perfect piece.  AR Workshop allows you to choose what you would like to create and even have custom options.  The possibilities are endless and I love that it's DIY.  It was much easier than I thought it would be and so much fun.

You can host a private event at their location or choose from one of their many classes.  This would be perfect for a girl's night out or a date night with your significant other!  It's would even be a great idea to pass the time with all the rain we are going to get this weekend.

They even hold classes for kids and my girls had a blast attending over Valentine's.  It was easy enough for even my 2 year old and held her attention the entire time.  This is something we will definitely be back to do together.

15 + 16 Weeks | Twins Bumpdate

Twins Bumpdate: 15 + 16 weeks

How far along?
15/16 weeks! 

Babies are the size of?
Avocados (about 4-5in each; 3-5oz)
Total weight gain/loss?
Surprisingly only about a pound.
Are you showing?
Clearly.  Haha!  I keep having to remind myself that I'm growing two babies.
Grilled ham and cheese sandwiches and french fries with mustard.  Aside from that, just food in general.  Sadly, I still can't drink hot coffee.  It leaves a horrible taste in my mouth.
I can't seem to get comfortable, but it could be worse.  Right now I'm up every few hours to pee!
I'm still pretty exhausted, but not falling asleep every time I sit down.  I'm a little nauseous in the evenings, but thankfully not throwing up.  Pregnancy pops seems to help.
The ultrasound tech told me what she thinks they are, but it was just for fun ;) Hopefully announcing soon.
I think I feel flutters, but nothing crazy. 

Mood this week?
Thankful. I'm so happy we were able to share our news and that everything seems to be going well.  I have another ultrasound next week that I'm so excited for and so grateful to be surrounded by so many wonderful people this week.
Best moment this week?
So many this week!  We celebrated Easter, went out boating, enjoyed soccer games and play dates! I even got a morning out and had brunch with a friend.
