Breezy Days

Glacier National Park

August 27, 2014
Last Monday, the first full day we were in Montana, we drove through a did a little hike in Glacier National Park. It was insanely gorgeous! I couldn't take a bad picture there if I wanted to. We did a 3 mile roundtrip hike to Hidden Lake, and we ran into some mountain goats and fat chipmunks on our way! I would apologize for the photo dump this post is...but I won't ;) 

Grouse Mountain Lodge

August 26, 2014

Our first stop was at the Grouse Mountain Lodge in Whitefish, which is a pretty fancy shmancy place according to Montanans. It was a gorgeous hotel with a cabin feel, both inside and out! One random thing we noticed throughout our Montana trip is that the state LOVES hanging flower pots. No seriously. In every city we were in, beautiful HANGING PLANTS. Grouse Lodge did not disappoint ;)

Here is what you walk in and see when coming through the front doors, wow!! Seriously decked out in posh cabin style. Our room was comfortable with a good size bathroom and a nice AC unit. My mom and I enjoyed making use of the outdoor hot tubs while the boys loved the sauna and golf course nearby. We stayed here for a couple of nights while we hit up Glacier National Park and before we made our way over to Quinn's Hot Springs! 

Francesca's Collections Friends & Family Sale

August 25, 2014
On August 14th I attended the Friends and Family Sale that all Francesca's locations were hosting, and was so excited to snag something cute on sale before going on vacation! The whole store was decked out in balloons, posters, and there was even cake pops by the cash register for all their customers. Um, so cute?!

I worked at this particular location for about a year and frequent the Orem shop to make sure I always get the cutest new arrivals. Above is my friend and the Assistant Manager, Josee who showed me around the store and helped me pick out an adorable blouse and necklace! 

Absolutely EVERYTHING in the store was 25% off, what what?! I love how Francesca's Collections always has these amazing sales, because they really put in the effort to show their customers that they're loved :) Plus being on their email list is the best because I can always plan my seasonal shopping around when they're having a BOGO or discount sale. I can't wait to show off my cute goodies that I picked up from the Friends and Family Sale!
