My extended family and I are going on a family vacation to the Outer Banks at the end of May and planning this trip versus the trips Cary and I used to go on alone is so different. Not only do we need to think about how Teagan fits into that situation but also what items do we need just to make it a more enjoyable experience.

Bigger items like the crib, high chair, baby gates, we plan to rent from one of the rental agencies down there but there are several items we will buy before heading down because they are either A. fun or B. needed long-term for other trips. Below is my list of items we will be buying for our family beach trip and links to purchasing them.

  1. Coleman Road Trip Beach Shade

This is probably the most important item in my opinion. Sadly, poor Teagan got my translucent skin so we will be putting a very high SPF sunscreen on her but having a fully shaded area for her to play or nap is really important.

  1. Portable Fan

This goes hand in hand with the tent. I need to keep my little ginger baby cool.

  1. Sand Coaster Drink Cup Holders

What is more annoying than putting your drink down at the beach only for it to fall over or have the bottom all covered in sand. The answer is nothing. Nothing is more annoying. These are imperative to sanity.

  1. Reusable/ Flexible Wine Flask

Bringing glass bottles to the beach is just a really bad idea so these things are amazing. They hold an entire bottle of wine or whatever your drink of choice is.

  1. Pool Volleyball Net

Our beach house has a private pool so we thought bringing a little floating net would just be a super fun way to get some friendly competition going one day.

  1. Mommy and Baby Float

We definitely needed some type of float for Teagan for the pool and if she gets to float why shouldn’t I? duh.

  1. Pool Mesh Sling Chairs

These chairs for the pool are so cool. I think it’s perfect for all of us gals that want to be in the pool lounging but don’t want to get our hair wet. And they are cheap for a set of 4 so why not?

  1. Hammock Pool Float

Lastly, for those that don’t mind getting their hair wet and want to totally relax but also want to stay cool, this hammock float is a must have.

I am sure as the trip gets closer I will think of some other things I definitely NEED to have. Really, I need nothing but some sunscreen and sunglasses but who doesn’t like to buy things for vacation? Now if I could just my beach body together 🙂 I’ll also do a post trip post about these items and which we actually utilized. Wahoo! Bring on the vacation.

  • We head to the Outer Banks tomorrow morning and we are ready for some sunshine and beach time! I’m excited we have safe, clean products to bring along that not only protect our skin but also keep our sleep routine normal in a new place. On a serious note, I really do think as a whole we all try to minimize the level of what our bodies are exposed to and want to ignore that fact. That is until we are forced to pay more attention, for example, when we are pregnant or have a little one at home or get sick or someone in our family dies. Until then, we continue to burn toxic candles, clean with horrible products, eat terribly, not take quality supplements. Basically not adequately supporting our body to function at the highest level. I’ll be the first to say I ignored all of these things but I’m a firm believer that if you know better, you do better! I want everyone to have access to amazing products. I want everyone to have an oil to grab when they feel like they need some support. Starting your oils journey can be scary, overwhelming and confusing but you are worth that. Your body is worth it. Your family is worth it! And I promise, once you start it’s so.dang.easy #joinmyoilstribe
  • Yesterday was a day to say the least. Being 25 weeks pregnant and being a full time mom to a hyper, strong willed toddler is not for the faint of heart. Not to mention carrying around her 30lbs all over the place is rough on my body. Needless to say it was perfect timing to go back to @massagehope for another prenatal massage. This time I asked Karlee to focus on my mid/upper back. I didn’t realize how much tension I was carrying in that area until she started working on it. Today I feel like a new person and a recharged mama and I’m so thankful! Whether you are pregnant or just looking to treat yourself to some self care, I highly recommend @massagehope as they offer many types of massages. If you are local, please go give them a try and use discount code “Jennifer” for 10% off any massage 💆
