Our fun filled weekend at Cabana Bay Beach Resort (A Universal Orlando Resort Hotel)

A few weekends back you may remember we took the whole family on a little "getaway" to Orlando! We go to Orlando quite often but this weekend was different because we were surprising the girls with park tickets to Universal Orlando Resort Parks! Which as you may or may not know houses The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  Ava and Jo were ecstatic! (Honestly so was I!)

For my husbands 40th we stayed at a Universal Orlando Resort Hotel and it was amazing! We didn't even use the parks that trip just enjoyed Universal CityWalk and the resort itself.  I had known about the amazing perks you get at the parks when you stay at a Universal Orlando Resort Hotel and couldn't wait to experience them! 
We stayed at Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort.  I had seen this hotel before while perusing hotels and always thought it looked so amazing! Well, I was right! The resort takes you back in time to the iconic beach resorts of the 1950's! Every single detail is so well pla…

Fall Booties with JustFab!

Do you shop with JustFab?! If you don't you are seriously missing out! They have the biggest and most on trend selection of shoes for every occasion and season PLUS their prices are crazy amazing!! This fall/winter season I will be partnering up with them to bring you my favorites!! 
Obviously this season is all about the boot! Or more specifically the bootie! I am loving how the animal print trend from last year is continuing on...especially since you all know I love to wear black.  Having a fun shoe is the perfect "pop" I like to add to my outfits.  Another important factor for me is everyday use.  I need a heel height that allows me to actually do my everyday errands.  I chose these three fun booties to get my fall looks started.  They are all comfortable and realistic for my daily activities.  (The snake skin bootie is more for a night out..but still super comfy!)  They all fit true to size however in booties I have always sized up 1/2 a size.  It's just my person…

It's almost here....

As most of you know this summer I began putting into action one of my ultimate dreams! Opening a boutique!  I can't even begin to explain how much I have always dreamt about this.  When I left teaching around 8 years ago I actually did open a small online store selling brand name, slightly used childrens clothes. I had such high hoped of tuning it into a brick and mortar store eventually.  The store was called "Adam & Ava" after my firstborn.  I learned right away I was not at the point in my life (at home with a newborn) to commit to something so time demanding.  Sadly after the merchandise all sold I closed it down and focused on being home.  
Fast forward to today.  My blog and my social influencing platforms have opened so many doors for me and I feel like I am finally ready to begin this dream again.  Only this time alllll the things I have focused on and loved about SunnyChicHome will be the main platform of the store.  Clothes, accessories and home decor! It …

Nordstrom Anniversary SALE. My top ten picks!

I took some time today to go through the sale since yesterday's poll was about 50/50 on who was shopping the sale.  I found that a lot of pieces were from previous sales (but great staple pieces) for example the SPANX leggings.  I bought them last year during this sale which is the best time.  I also found the cardigans to be good priced BUT so many of them are now duplicated on Amazon.  The leopard booties I linked are my favorite by far! I also found LOTS of good Home sales.  Especially if you are in the market for new bedding! Lots of throw blankets on sale too! Below you'll find my TOP TEN! Thanks again for shopping through my links! :) You all are the best! 


SPANX faux leather leggings  ($64.00  after sale $98.00)

Summer Safety! (Prevent Needless Deaths Awareness Campaign)

Hi friends! I hope everyone has been enjoying the beginning of summer vacation! I am excited and honored to be collaborating with The Childrens Board of Hillsborough County for the Prevent Needless Deaths Awareness Campaign! This is such an important topic especially when the summer months roll around. Water safety is something I have touched upon for years since we not only live in Florida and are surrounded by bodies of water but also since my children have grown up in pool homes. I hope that you read this short and informative blog post that I'm sharing today (thanks to the Prevent Needless Deaths Awareness Campaign) and help keep our children safe this summer!

Keep your kids safe during summer break 
Summer often means pool parties, family barbeques, staycations and vacations. You may have friends and family members in the house, which makes it harder to keep track of everyone.
These situations – when you’re distracted, stressed or out of your routine – can be dangerous fo…
Summer is less than a month away and I'm relinking my top five favorite family vacations for you all!! We probably take three to four vacations a year (it's easy being in Florida to get in the car and drive to a new beautiful location!) and these five always stand out as great family destinations! 
MIAMI (Sunny Isles Beach)
We've now been to this particular resort five times!! And I know a lot of you actually went and stayed as well.  I'm not sure my husband and I would stay here on a "couples" getaway...just because it is further from some of the main attractions/bars/restaurants and South Beach...but for a family trip WE LOVE IT!!

N-Hance Wood Refinishing:

So who has thought about getting their kitchen cabinets painted? Bathroom vanities perhaps? I HAVE! Some of you may remember in our previous house I painted (chalk painted) our kitchen cabinets and I swore to never do it again.  It was such hard work and they needed to be retouched not once but twice while we lived there.  When we moved into our current house I asked around for some professional recommendations for painting cabinetry and the company N-Hance got mentioned quite a few times.  While we haven't taken the plunge yet I can now say my husband and I are so excited! They use an ultraviolet light curing technology that leaves the c…
