Legally Obligated to Stunt.

Thank you @Airbnb for helping sponsor our stay at this beautiful Brazilian penthouse!  

Hola Chicas,

You know that moment somewhere between the dream you were having and halfway opening your eyes, where you can’t tell if you’re asleep or awake and you don’t know what’s real and what’s lucid illusion? When you can’t tell if you’re in a dream that feels real, or if you’re living out your dreams? That feeling? Let me tell you about it.

If you’ve been keeping up with the blog, you know that travelling isn’t new for me and the fam. We took our first international trip in 2008 and have left the country no less than twice a year, every year, since then. But one thing I haven’t done is shared the original inspiration that inspired us.


#MomLife: A Few of My Favorite Things + a Giveaway!

2/24/16 -- It's 75 degrees here in DC and I'm on my way to an al fresco lunch date with Dr.Daddy! Huge thanks to Airbnb for putting my parents up in a gorgeous house for an entire month (and picking up the tab) to make excursions like these possible ('cause I don't let just anybody keep my kids!). 

Hola Chicas!

Yesterday, I shared pics of Max's new ride (review coming soon) and today, I'm sharing two more of my #ChicMommy must-haves!


My Scary Experience with Pre-Eclampsia After Delivery

Big Sis Gia and her baby Max

So there I was, taking in the miracle that just happened. Little Max was finally here!  Our parents were settled into the home gifted by Airbnb for the month. The hospital let us go home ahead of schedule so we could get some rest and love on him and kiss his tiny fingers and toes. We were settling in to being a family of four, and it was all good. Uncomplicated pregnancy. Uncomplicated delivery. One, handsome, healthy baby boy and his healthy mom.


#NewKidAlert: Baby Number 2 Is Here!

Hola Chicas!

August Maxwell Walton has arrived! I'll check back in soon with more deets, but here's a quick run down:

The View from Walton Abbey

Hola Chicas!

The Real Houseguests of DC have arrived and checked in to Walton Abbey! And since I've reached that point in my pregnancy where I no longer want to wear pants, I'm thoroughly grateful to Airbnb for gifting us the home for the month.  

Real Houseguests of DC

Huge thanks to Airbnb for comping a beautiful home for our parents for a month, while we await the arrival of Baby Boy Walton! #WeReady #ExtraReady 

Hola Chicas!

We've been using Airbnb for our international and domestic adventures since 2011 because they've offered practical accommodations for our style of travel. On each trip we've found, dope, art gallery esque, decked out, character-filled houses to stay in. #BallinOnABudget.  And this one time, in Spain, we actually stayed in a real live art gallery!  Even though it's usually just the two of us traveling, we get to spread out in multiple rooms, have the peace of mind of multiple bathrooms and enjoy the simple yet most appreciated things like hot sauce in the pantry and a chilled bottle of wine left for us by the host. Obviously, the aesthetic is really, really important to us, but so is the location. I like to be in a safe neighborhood, but one that's off the beaten path, with the people-- I don't do tourists.

For more about why we travel so much and so often, check out my Forbes interview!

As you know we're expecting Baby Boy Walton any day now and the grandparents couldn't be any more geeked. My parents will be here for the entire month of February (they arrive today!!!!), my mother-in-law has a one-way ticket to DC on Feb 3rd and my Aunt Toney (and Boogie and Baby's Godmother) is coming in for more than a week, in February. Meanwhile we reside in a beautiful glass box, a penthouse loft which is perfect for our little family unit but definitely couldn't stand the Lee-Walton clan descending upon it for 28 days!
