Memorial Day Weekend Essentials with Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores

Hey guys! So excited to be teaming up with Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores today to talk about their delicious new flavors: Chocolate Marshmallow, Toasted Marshmallow, and Toasted Marshmallow with fudge. As most of you know my nephews are very important to me. I spend so much of my free time with them so making sure they're happy and satisfied this Summer is definitely a priority. All three of them LOVE ice cream, and when I showed up with Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores they were ecstatic! 

For the first time ever, our entire family (and friends) will be spending this Memorial Day at our beach house, and I can't wait for all of us to spend some quality time together. The beach and ice cream pretty much go hand in hand, so I am pumped for the weekend ahead. 

What is great about Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores is that anyone, of any age can enjoy them. I truly feel like ice cream brings people together in such a fun way. One of my fondest memories when I was a child was spending the nights eating ice cream with my cousins and neighborhood friends. The NEW Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores bring out all the delicious flavor of S’mores with marshmallow flavored ice cream, and a rich graham cracker, chocolatey coating.

I had so much fun spending time with my nephews (and Oliver of course) and I can't wait for the weekend. We plan on bringing our Nestlé® Drumstick® ice cream with us and eating it right on the beach. I hope New Jersey brings the sun- because we're definitely bringing the delicious ice cream!

Sundress Life

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! Unfortunately I am back from South Carolina, which means back to normal weather and normal life. I got to spend some quality time with one of my best friends and two new friends on a remote island by the name of Daufuskie, which is right in the middle of South Carolina and Savannah. It was so great to get away for a few days, and really try to relax. We drove golf carts everywhere, got to eat some southern cooking, and got to meet some of the locals, which included a lot of animals (we're talkin' alligators, raccoons, deer and black faced squirrels). My one regret is not bringing my camera with me to document it, but if you follow me on snapchat, I'm sure you got more than enough of it! (@littletreemaria- follow along for some fun sing alongs and silly accents).

I have been so obsessed with flowers this season. I stop at the flower shop at least once a week to pick up some blooms for the house, I feel like they make every room look and smell so much better. It's completely worth it to spoil yourself sometimes, am I right? Peonies are finally in season, and of course like every other blogger, I LOVE THEM. Peonies are the main flowers in our wedding bouquets so I am really excited that they're in season just in time for us to use them.

Less than three weeks till the wedding so I am a busy woman- but trying to enjoy the last few things on my to-do list before the big day is here. I am pretty excited that some of my family is flying in from overseas, and excited to have all of our friends under one roof, all celebrating with us. It can't come soon enough!

May Showers Bring June Flowers?

Hey everyone, and Happy Monday! Today is the first day in over a week that New Jersey hasn't had a spot of rain. I almost had no hope that it would clear up any time soon, but I was happy to wake up with the sun shining brightly above. Although it's starting to disappear now, I will take clouds over rain any day. 

I cannot believe that in less than 4 weeks I will be a married woman! It all seems so crazy and quick, but I can't wait for the day to arrive. I have been busy planning, and ordering things, and trying to make sure that all my ducks are in a row before the big day. I have wanted to share little details of everything but I am waiting for a full re-cap after the wedding is through- as to not ruin any surprises! I am excited for the day, and excited to see how everything I envisioned will play out in real life. It's hard to picture things without having them in front of you- but I feel like I have done a pretty good job at making sure I pay attention to every detail that is important to me. 

I hope all of you are having a great Spring, and I am sure I speak for all of us when I say that Summer needs to hurry up and get here already!

Shades of blue never go out of style. With Spring in full effect I am dreaming of outfits that scream out for the Summer! I have never worn a matching two piece set, so this is all new to me. I do however love how easy and versatile it is. With a pair of nude heels on my feet, I felt like I could conquer the world in this outfit.

Today marks one month from our wedding date and I cannot wait for the day to be here already! With all the plans in place, we are days away from saying our I Do's and that thought is just crazy! I am not sure where the past 9 months have gone but I am so excited to begin this next phase in our lives.
