24 Hours in Lisbon

So in order to take full advantage of squeezing the most travel in before we left Europe and moved back to the US, we decided to book our flights back to Miami with a 24 hour layover in Lisbon, Portugal.

Portugal has been on our list for quite some time, and although we only had 24 hours we were determined to enjoy every last minute of our trip.

We flew from Nice to Lisbon, just a quick 2 hour flight…..

Boarding our flight from Nice to Lisbon....with SOOO much carry on it was majorly illegal!

Taboo Topic

As I struggle with our infertility battle…I grow tired of the fact that it’s such a taboo topic.  See I’m a very open person, and I’m definitely open about our issues trying to conceive. But I’m starting to become closed off about it.

It’s funny because after a few months people have offered me LOTS of advice, anything from “Just Relax, it will happen”, to “Maybe it’s just not the right time.” or my personal favorite “You need to gain weight”. But it’s also funny the people in my life that really avoid talking about it…I had a friend wait until she was 7 months pregnant to share her news with me.  I mean, did she honestly think I wouldn’t be happy for her?

Fall Fashion

So the weather is starting to cool down in the South of France, and by cool I mean in the low 20’s….but it’s still fresh enough to start rocking some of the newest fall fashion!Here are my top 3 picks:

1. Everyone knows that a blazer is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe.  It can take a simple t-shirt and jeans and make it less casual….or it can take a cocktail dress to something more office appropriate.  For this fall, I’m loving this Ikat Blazer by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent. Here are her two takes.

2. Next, I’m loving these single color skirt and crop top ensembles.  I’ve not been brave enough to rock one myself, but perhaps once I move back to Miami I will have a bit more courage.

3. Finally….the patterned pant! These are simply stunning from Celine. I plan on rocking lots of patterned pants this fall. I’ve got this gorgeous pair of floral patterned pants that I’ve been waiting to wear, and I think it’s high time I broke out those bad boys!

What are you excited to wear this fall??

Back to Monaco

So we’re back in Monaco after a lovely 2 week holiday in Tuscany.  What an unforgettable trip!  I’m working on my posts & getting all my pics together and will share some details from the trip hopefully tomorrow.

The doggies were returned to us on Monday evening.  Our dog walker/ sitter is so great. You can tell the dogs really love her!  But there is nothing like seeing your dogs after being away, they give you cuddles and kisses and so much love! We missed them so much, and talked about them nearly every day. They really are our fur babies. I can’t even imagine how it would feel to be away from a real, human child.

We returned to some hostility from the boss.  He’s once again trying to place the blame on the fact that we have no clients. Saying that every time we go on vacation, it’s when he needs us.  I love being the scape goat…it’s just great!

Since our return back on Monday we’ve been trying to finalize some plans for our move back to Miami. There’s just so much to think about….buying a car, where will we live, job, how can we budget, etc!! Just trying to put together a check list of everything that needs sorted out.

The Monaco Yacht Show started yesterday, which is a HUGE deal in Monaco. We have tickets, we just can’t decide the best time to go.  We went last year, and honestly it wasn’t that fun.  It’s mostly for yachting professionals, so we just felt out of place. Maybe this year it will be different.
