Friday Faves & Finds (6.1.18)


week in review

Happy June 1! We spent last weekend at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, and I am already dreaming of when we can go back. The resort is so family friendly that it’s truly relaxing to be there with our kids, and they seem to instinctively know to be on their best behavior so that we’ll take them back there again! It was such an easy getaway, and we took advantage of these great recommendations to maximize our time in the area.

This weekend, we’re celebrating our friend’s son’s fourth birthday at Sonoma Raceway. Genius, right? What little kid doesn’t want to see fast cars race around tracks? Then, we can all toast the birthday boy at a winery afterward.

On Sunday, we’ll be at the Palace of Fine Arts for my kids’ dance recital. I can only hope there’s a performance as adorably hilarious as this one.

Last week, I told you I ordered these shoes from Native. They did not disappoint! This week, I ordered a pair of these Allbirds… someone take my online ordering privileges away from me.

We’re taking a family vacation to Portugal this summer (my justification for all my shoe purchases), and I’m attempting to learn a little Portuguese for the trip, so I downloaded Babbel
