  • Quarantine cuties! I bought these outfits before the lockdown because we were scheduled to be traveling this week. Since their hair was done we might as well 📸. But why are they so cool! Links to their outfits on the blog. #targetstyle #fashionkids
  • Those pedicures hit diff when you can’t go to the nails shop! It had gotten so bad that I didn’t want to touch my own feet. I grabbed my pumice, cuticle remover, soaked my feet and went to work! These were supposed to be my spring summer sandals. Got them from ASOS before ish got real! I’ll link them in my stories shortly.
  • Shout out to all the moms holding it down and homeschooling!  These kids may be trying to take us out but we got this!  @Supermomculture #dontrushchallenge featuring

  • No judgment zone! While scouring IG looking for hair inspo at time I’ve noticed “strangers” in the comments telling people how their kids hair should look.  I’m guilty of having my opinions in the past but I kept them to myself.  I remember when I said I would never put beads in my kids hair, add color, blow it out or add hair.  Look at us now.  I think all those “rules” held us back from embracing our hair. While I won’t do anything to damage their hair I do encourage them to try different styles.  Peyton knows her hair is magical and she can do so many things. She gets to the point where she asks me if she could wear it natural for a while vs the other way around. I offered to give her a long ponytail for her cheer competition and she said no she was fine.  Ok den! I know My mood is better when my hair is laid. Love our girls can express themselves with their hair. What’s a hair rule that you have broken for you or your children?

  • Harper got her bedroom “office” update. I styled the book shelves (she has a ton in her closet) and added a dry erase board.  She loves to practice her letter on it. Just after one day, her markers were confiscated 😒. Not sure what my next project will be.  I’m avoiding my closet but I seriously need to tackle that asap. You can find more pics of her room on the blog.  Link in profile. #heytrinashome #kidsdecor
  • My first time doing braid with hair ever! I did box braids on Peyton’s hair using @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair.  I’m so happy with how they came out I’m tempted to doing some on myself 😳. I used the rubber and method. Ore pics on the blog. Would you try these?  If you try this please share with me! #boxbraids #girlbraidstyles #latchednhooked #protectivestyles #diybraids https://heytrina.com/easy-box-braids-you-can-do-yourself-video/
  • My favorite part of Peyton’s bedroom refresh is her art from @sheisthisdesigns! I need to order more for Harper’s room and my new office space. I dreamed of having a room like Peyton’s when I was growing up (sometimes now 😆). She’s also has a closet to die for.  I always tell her if she can’t keep it clean, I’m putting my stuff in there.  We’ll be cleaning that out soon! Paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  More room pics on the blog. Link in profile. #heytrinashome
  • Picture of my girls actually fighting against doing any school work.  This homeschooling thing is a full time job! Mr has locked himself in my old office leaving me to fend for myself. I’ve decided to give the girls and myself grace (and 🍷). Not that I’m letting them win, after hours of going back and fourth I have to know when to call it a day.  One night I was up with Peyton till almost 10 helping her finish her work and I knew this can’t be life.  So we’re working about 2-3 hrs a day on school plus reading.  That’s all i got.  Just praying  she passes 4th grade 😩. How’s it going for you guys? #graceandmercy shirts fine @pintsizefaith
  • Another project under my quarantine belt! Peyton’s pre-tween bedroom refresh is done! It looks so good and matches the vibe of the rest of the house. Peyton wanted to kick the bright pinks to the curb. Now Harper wants her room update 😒. Her only update will be a good cleaning 😩. Spent less than $100. Swipe to see the before that was already cute.

Jekyll Island Family Vacation Recap {Video}

April 10, 2017

This time last week we were laying on the beach playing in the sand.  Back to reality.  Peyton headed back to school today eager to share her Jekyll Island spring break details with her friends.  I don’t blame her.  It felt good to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days with the family.  I thought I would share more details from our trip and stay at the Jekyll Island Club in case you are looking for a quick family getaway. 

Jekyll Island is located on the Atlantic Coast, about an hour south of Savannah.  It’s just 5 hours from Atlanta.  My tolerance level for road trips is 6 hours max in the car.  Thankfully, our road trip was not affected by the collapse of 85.  Jekyll Island is the perfect weekend getaway if you’re an ATlien.

The vibe of Jekyll Island is laid back.  Everyone is on chill mode.  You won’t find crowds or hustle and bustle here.  The guest is mainly made of retirement age adults and families.  You won’t find the teen spring break scene here.

Where to Stay:

  • Our accommodations were provided by the Jekyll Island Club Resort.  Built in the late 1800s, Jekyll Island Club Resort is one of Georgia’s few historic hotels.  When you pull up to the resort, you are wowed by the historic charm of this resort. I felt like I was about to meet the Queen. Not Queen Bey, but Elizabeth.  Jekyll Island Club Resort may be well over 100 years old but the preservation of the grounds are incredible.  Service at Jekyll Island Club was top notch.  The staff was always eager to help us. The staff did their best to make sure our stay was as pleasant as possible.  Hands down, it was the best hotel on the island.

What to do:

  • Hit the beach.  Jekyll Island beaches are easy to get to and plenty of room for the kids to run free (make sure you watch the video).  I would suggest bringing your own folding chairs or a blanket to spend the day at the beach.
  • Visit the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.  Just steps away from the Jekyll Island Club Resort.  It’s only $5 for kids and $7 for adults.
  • Go for a family bike ride on the beautiful trails.  We wanted to bike ride but every time we were ready, it was raining. Bikes are conveniently available at Jekyll Island Club Resort.  They even have bikes that kids can ride on the back. Cost is about $12 a day.
  • Shop at the new Beach Village.  This a new area in Jekyll Island that is home to a few small shops and restaurants.
  • Head to the water park.  Yes, Jekyll Island has a water park.  It doesn’t open until the summer.  Next time I’ll plan a trip when it is open.
  • Go golfing.  Jekyll Island has a mini, 18 and 9 hole golf available.

Where to eat:

  • My favorite spot was Love Shack BBQ Shrimp & Yardbird.  Very reasonably priced and delish!
  • Red Bug Motors Pizza is also a great budget friendly place to take the family.  A large pizza is about $15.
  • If you want to get all fancy, make reservations at the Grand Dining Room at the Jekyll Island Club Resort.
  • If you want some fast food, there is a full-service Dairy Queen on the island.  We stopped there and picked up some hotdogs.  I may or may not have gotten a blizzard.

This is my first time at a Georgia beach and it won’t be my last. Have you been to Jekyll Island?  What’s your favorite thing to do or eat at Jekyll Island?
