Since Friday I’ve been spending a nice long weekend with my family at our rustic yet cozy New Jersey shore house.
Yesterday a bunch of the relatives came down for the day for fishing, feasting, and watching home videos.
…including one of me decked out in plastic jewelry demanding that the entire family listen to me sing Christmas carols.
So…sorry, you guys.
My sister Katie was on the fence about coming or not, so I was SO excited when she decided to come down too.
(We think we’re like, really funny.)
Her birthday was on Wednesday, so we got to celebrate that as a family. Happy birthday, Katie!
Ironically, though, we exchanged birthday gifts since she never got one for me in March and insisted it wasn’t too late. A necklace from Anthropologie for her, and this gorgeous Nixon watch (that I’ve been eying up for months) for me.
The rest of the weekend so far has consisted relaxing, a few hours of FreelyBe work, and lots of girlie movies (sorry Dad).
And in an attempt to once again make up for being a brat diva as a little girl, I made Black Forest Brownies for everyone.
I’ll be here until Monday or Tuesday to soak in some more family time before the craziness of September begins. And it’s gonna get crazy…
What did your last family vacation/get-together look like?
