Girls' Trip to the DR | What I'm Packing

I can't believe this trip is finally here! I'm headed to the Dominican Republic (Puerto Plata) early tomorrow morning with 5 of my girl friends for a relaxing vacation by the beach! We have our own 3 bedroom villa with our own private pool which is awesome! I have been looking forward to this vacation, but also a bit nervous about leaving the boys for 6 full days and 5 nights. This is the longest I've been away from them (besides when we went to Germany/Austria for 10 days when Camden was 8 months old). It will be nice to have some time off of work and 'mommy duty', but I'm sure I will come home feeling refreshed and ready to hug my boys!!

I've basically been shopping for the trip for the last 3 months! I've been so excited about wearing some new things and fitting into some smaller sizes since I've lost a little bit of weight since the beginning of the year. I actually bought a few bikinis to wear too! I never thought I would be in a bikini again, but I'm feeling more confident about my body and the fact that it will be my close girlfriends at our own private pool anyways lol! 

I wanted to share with you guys what I packed for the trip in case you need some ideas for an upcoming vacation or just some items to add to your summer closet!

I will be taking a little blogging break for the next week or so, but I'm hoping to still be able to post on instagram from time to time, so make sure to follow me for photos from our trip!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! xoxo
