Typical Katie Travels: Girls Trip To Jekyll Island

March 15, 2018
Jekyll Island Girls Trip

Did you catch my Instagram stories over this last weekend? Charlie and I went to Jekyll Island with Chanel from Chanel Moving Forward and her daughter for a girls weekend. We thought it would be a great place to take the girls for a couple days of “Mommy and Me” time. Jekyll Island is off the coast of Brunswick, GA and right about five hours from our home in the Atlanta area.…

Things To Do In Atlanta With Kids: Georgia Aquarium

February 14, 2018

Thank you to the Georgia Aquarium for sponsoring this post. I’m not going to lie, finding things to do in Atlanta with kids was not always a pleasant chore for our family. Since Charlie was born, we would have grand ideas about outings with our three little ones and hopes for a picturesque day out in Atlanta, and were often met with disappointment. It can be tricky to find things that are appealing to Grayson AND Charlie, with their age…

November 18, 2017

The ultimate film, food, and wine experience, the Napa Valley Film Festival lights up Wine Country during the most colorful time of the year. Thank you Napa Valley Film Festival for sponsoring this post. One of the coolest parts of having a blog with a dedicated audience, is that I get the opportunity to enjoy some amazing experiences so that I can then share it with you. Most recently, I was able to attend the Napa Valley Film Festival. I…

Typical Katie Travels: Girls Weekend in Napa Valley

October 22, 2017

As soon as I moved to Napa, my “squad” (self coined, endearing label for our group of seven best friends) started planning a trip. A bonus of living in a tourist destination is that people want to come visit! Well, that, and they also love me (of course). A couple gals in our group had last minute things come up and had to stay home, but the rest of us eagerly awaited our weekend of wine and sunshine. Moving somewhere…

Typical Katie Travels: 24 Hours at Carmel-By-The-Sea

September 11, 2017

It’s time to say goodbye to summer! I don’t hate summers on the west coast, y’all, ESPECIALLY on the beaches of California. As opposed to the east coast beaches I am used to, Northern California beaches are much cooler temperatures and surrounded by incredible landscapes. Before summer is officially gone, I wanted to do a recap of a 24 hour trip we took a few months back to Carmel-By-The-Sea.…

Building Our Tribe | Wine Country Blogger Brunch

August 15, 2017

I have said before that the best part about blogging is undoubtedly the relationships I have made. I was nervous when I moved to Wine Country that I would have a hard time connecting with a blogger community here. When you work from home in such a specific industry, it’s so important to have a tribe of women who understand the ins and outs of the “biz” and can be a valuable support and sounding board. Professional bloggers are usually,…

Napa Valley Staycation: Silverado Resort & Spa

July 3, 2017

Anybody catch my Instagram stories about a week ago? If so, you know that I took both kids by myself out for the night to Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa, as a mini-staycation before their new sibling shows up and steals the show. In theory, this idea was amazing and made me Mom of the Year. In reality, it was mildly majorly stressful. I’m just being honest, here. I’m not going to pretend like I don’t wish I had…

Family Update | The Crenshaws Move to California

May 1, 2017

I can’t believe we have already been here for a month! I feel like my head is still spinning with things to check off a “to do” list. It’s hard to believe we have been Californians for that long, already. In case you missed my chatter about it on social media, we had a hiccup in our living situation not long before we came and were scrambling for a place to move into. We ended up connecting with a landlord…

Saying Farewell to The Deep South: A Family Road Trip

April 3, 2017

Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (“Toyota”) provided me with compensation and use of a VEHICLE for a short period of time. The opinions I have shared about this vehicle are my own. Hi friends! I’m writing this from California! That’s right, our move is complete. I have plenty to talk about later on in regards to that adventure, but for now, I want to tell you about my last weekend in Georgia. My family lives a few hours south of where…

Typical Katie Travels: Girls Weekend in Houston

March 7, 2017

Hey friends! I took last week off… sort of by accident. It was also not an accident, because I am literally busy every second of the day with the kids and working and planning the move! I couldn’t wait to tell y’all about my weekend in Houston, though. It was so wonderful and I know you will recognize some of the faces I was with.…

Atlanta Staycation: Mom’s Night Out at Mandarin Oriental

February 22, 2017

Thank you to Mandarin Oriental for partnering with us for our sponsored stay. All opinions are mine. I’m encouraged by how many Moms I’ve seen lately on social media getting to enjoy a night away from home… ALONE. I think some partners are also catching on to a “Mom’s Night Away” being the perfect gift. Any mom reading this has fantasized about a night away from home in silence, with a bed and a TV all to herself, room service,…

The Gift of Experience: For The Person Who Has Everything

November 23, 2016

Thank you to Xtreme Xperience for hosting us in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Gifting things can get old. Anyone else feel like that? Especially, when you’re married and you share a bank account. It’s hard to surprise your partner with an amazing gift. Usually, we buy what we need when we need it and are scratching our heads at Christmas time. Not only that, but I kind of pride myself on my thoughtful gift…

Typical Katie Travels: The St. Simons Island Lighthouse

August 2, 2016

This post was sponsored by SeaPak and The United States Lighthouse Society. All opinions are my own. Having grown up on one of the barrier islands off the coast of Georgia, I often took for granted how full my childhood was. We never lacked for things to do outdoors, there was natural beauty all around us. Saint Simons Island is a quaint little island about an hour south of Savannah. It’s full of rich Southern history dating all the way…
