Branson Here We Come!!

As you are reading this now I am in Branson, MO (yes you read that right, Branson) with my in laws and my husband. Ella joined along and my parents were gracious enough to take Charlotte for the week.

You are probably asking “what the heck are you doing in Branson?” You know what? I am asking myself the same thing. Long story short, my in laws had a time share week to use. All of the awesome suggestions I gave were already taken (Seattle, Portland, San Fran) so we ended up in Branson. It seems like there are a lot of shows to be seen and good food to be eaten so we shall see! I am trying to go into this with an open mind, and am truly excited to spend some one on one time with Ella this week. Plus, seeing how excited she is to ride on an airplane is so adorable! There are lots of trees and mountains here Lots of them-I mean, we are in the Ozark Mountains so I guess it makes sense to see so many trees!

Anyway, this weekend was spent minus Charlotte- I forgot how easy it was with only one child, let alone a child who is pretty independent. My husband and I were commenting on how the stress level was significantly less with only a 5 year old! (although I must say I miss Charlotte terribly already).

I absolutely fell in love with these little “glamour” shots her daycare took last week. How adorable? She also turned 10 months on Friday so we took her monthly pictures. You can get a glimpse of how daring Charlotte is. She is most definitely a risk taker!

I will end with the pictures that I captured of Ella during our whole travel day. You can just see the excitement on her face….I love it!

And a glimpse of my travel outfit. I have done travel style posts before here and here so its no surprise I was in leggings. They have got to be the most comfortable yet stylish travel piece! It should be making a detailed appearance on the blog in the coming weeks! 

Don’t forget to enter my two awesome giveaways here (you win a Nivea Escape Challenge Kit) and here to win a $25 credit to Wallis!!

You can also vote for me HERE to help me win a “me time” getaway to Miraval Resort and a Wallis wardrobe! You can vote every hour until July 31st! I would love and appreciate any of your votes! Thank you so much! 

See you back here this week for the perfect little peplum, Hollywood to Housewife, and my guest post for The Life of Bon!

    I live in Springfield, about 40 minutes from Branson. You will enjoy downtown and the Landing. I don't know where you're staying, but Big Cedar Lodge is beautiful and has good food. Also the College of the Ozarks has a great restaurant. Lots of gorgeous views of the lake around Branson. And my girls love Silver Dollar City. Have fun!
