Life :: Ready for a family vacay!

Hi gang! Hope you're having a great week. This Sunday, I leave for vacation to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! I haven't seen my family since August, and I haven't been to the east coast in years. I'm very excited to spend an entire week relaxing. Lately I've felt like I'm in a bit of a rut and I think this will be the perfect way to clear my head.

I'm determined to get lots of cleaning done this week before I go. My bedroom, which has been a mess for months, is nearly finished -- complete with a comfy chair in the corner! I'm so excited to show you. I used to be embarrassed to have people over, but now I can't wait for the girls to camp out in here. Let's hope it stays this way long enough for me to host something. ;)

Despite my busy-than-ever schedule, I managed to find time recently for one of the most beautiful and inspiring films I've seen in months. It was so perfect for this season in my life. ♥ I suggest not looking at any pictures or reading the synopsis and going into it with an open mind. I rarely watch trailers anymore, honestly. I just love watching movies and not know what to expect! What about you?

On a businesslike note, now is your chance to secure a sponsor spot for April or enter this giveaway to win one! Thank you to those who have already entered, and to the lovely Kate for hosting.

  1. I loved Midnight In Paris! :)

    Et tu, tutu?

  2. I need to clean my room so bad. I also need to pack so I can move to an entire house I can make a mess of :)

    I hope you have fun on your vacation! Family and friends always help me when I feel stuck.

  3. I know you've been missing your family and I'm so glad you get to see them! :) Have FUN!

  4. Sounds like a plan. Have fun with your family! :)

  5. I saw the advert for that film and it really intrigued me... I am dying to see it :) thanks for mentioning it on your blog

  6. woody allen is best at making movies that you need like medicine. i love him, but havent seen this one yet! waiting for the perfect time.


  7. I hope you have a great trip - family vacations can be so much fun!

  8. Wow, am I jealous! All I can think about these days is wanting to get away. I hope you have a great trip!

  9. The movie sounds right up my alley! I'm leaving on vaca to the Alps this weekend with the bf's parents and not the bf...your vacation is sounding a little more relaxing than the prospect of mine ;)

  10. The movie sounds amazing, probably will take your advice and watch it this upcoming weekend. I hope you have a great time on vacation :)

  11. I have family in MB, too! Love it there. It's also not too bad of a drive for me, so that's awesome. Enjoy!!! Hope this weather warms up a bit for you next week!

  12. I hope you have a fantastic vacation! And we will catch on my next LA visit!!!

  13. Oh this sounds like fun, I've only been to Myrtle beach once when I was a little girl w/ the parents. I hope you have a wonderful time. I think cleaning before a holiday is always the best, so when you return it's refreshing. Enjoy your time with family. -xo

  14. Midnight in Paris was a wonderful film. It pushed me to watch Annie Hall, which I loved! Woody Allen sure knows how to make some good cinema. :)

  15. My boyfriend and I just watched that last month. I really enjoyed it. I think it is so important to do something that you enjoy and are proud of than to do something that makes you rich.

    Have a great time with your family! That is so exciting :)

  16. have fun! i have never been to hilton head for a vacay, but will drive by next friday/saturday.

    and i never watch trailers anymore unless my husband asks me to. i just end up seeing things.

  17. Enjoy your vacation! I LOVED that movie when I saw it in theaters...just magical. I think I'm due for a re-watch.

    Normally I love watching trailers and such, but when I went to go see "Drive" I knew absolutely nothing about it (and I missed the first 10 minutes, though that was unintentional) and it was really fun! I think I'll be doing that more often :)

  18. i LOVE midnight in paris!
    i wish my life was a woody allen movie.

    and have fun on your vacation!

  19. I'm with you, the less I know about a movie the more I tend to like it. I'm going to have to see this movie now :)

    Have a great time on your vacation!

  20. I've heard such good things about this movie, though still don't really know what it's "about". It's on the top of my list :) I love Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams...

    Hope you have a really great vacay :)


  21. I've never heard of this movie but I like the art for the poster so I may check it out. I like your blog by the way!

  22. So jealous of your vacay!
    Anyway, dying to see this movie!
