Adventure 3 // Legoland Florida

Length of stay: One Night Accommodations: Legoland Beach Retreat Length of stay: One Night Accommodations: Legoland Beach Retreat After being in Florida for a few months, we realized what a great place it is to explore both close to home and for a good ‘ol weekend-get-away. We have poked north and south, and there is so much more available now than when I was even a kid. One of new and exciting places that’s east to get to and not-so-overwhelming is Legoland. If you follow us on instagram, you know this isn’t our first trip to brick city. On the […]

Gypsy Picnic Recap

We had planned the cutest backyard picnic, and were so excited to set up and then BOOM! Thunder, lightning, and rain. After weeks of planning, we refused to cancel. With a wet ground, supplies in hand and guests showing up in just a few hours, I though it was time to exercise porch life. A little rain wasn’t going to hurt anyone if it sprinkled in. Gypsy Picnic turned Gypsy Porch Picnic! I had put together a tasting menu and presented everything on some super cute Pier 1 tasting party-ware which made everything look super fancy and chic. The recipe […]

Gypsy Picnic Treasure Hunting

  G’mornin lovies! We are in party mode in Casa Katsaros! We have two parties we are hosting and a hearty handful of more to attend. This weather is worth celebrating. We noticed the fireflies in Tennessee are about a magical as you can get, so those cool night parties are a lot like fiction and we are grateful people here like to enjoy these simple moments as much as possible. I don’t think we have come across a porch sans swing to date. We have been working with Pier 1 and Spotify on a Gypsy Picnic over the past […]

Going behind the Good Housekeeping Seal

Since we moved to Nashville, we have been to Houston for two weeks, Florida for two weeks, and New York for a week. Keep in mind we signed for our house March 1st! No wonder I feel so behind when it comes to unpacking and making this house ours. Even though it’s hard to leave our new pad, we went to New York with good reason last week. Good Housekeeping invited us to check out their facility to see exactly how brands get to walk away with that pretty little seal, and how it’s really a big deal. One thing […]

Gypsy Picnic Love

Oh, Nashville! You have our hearts. The weather has been so great. New York had the worst winter, and to come to Nashville and have such great sun with a cool breeze has been amazing. We have become addicted to walking every night. The weather is begging us to stay outside and hang out, so we are listening and planning lots of out door activities. We are hosting two parties in June, and one is a Gypsy Picnic for some lady friends I have met. Nashville has got to be the friendliest place ever because you can’t leave the house […]

Six trips in eight months with an infant pt. 1

When you have a child, everyone warns you how much your life is going to change. And it does. Not in the ways they explain it per say, but in ways you couldn’t have planned for or dreamed up. Basically, the day Atlas turned twelve weeks old, we planned a road trip down to Houston for a sip n’ see my mother-in-law wanted to host for us. We thought it was smart to get him use to travel as soon as we can, so we did what we figured would be the most complicated thing, a 3,200 mile road trip […]

Fun Day // 2

We played hooky on Friday. I guess that’s kind of a silly thing to say when both Joey and I work for ourselves these days. We needed a breather. With all the home reno chaos + business trips building up, we haven’t had very much time for our little am over the past few weeks.  We loved what Rhinebeck had to offer when we popped over for the Country Living Fair a few weeks back, so decided go without a plan and explore the town. From southern Westchester, it’s about an hour and a half drive – and very worth it. […]

Fun Day // 1

It’s been on my to-do list forever it seems, and finally the fair came to New York! This event inspired me to start a new category “Fun Day” . We do a lot of poking around and adventuring, and are often asked about the places we go. We thought it a good idea to share our journeys and inspire you to go have a fun day of your own! The Country Living Fair! #CLFair Where: Rhinebeck, NY (also in Atlanta, Ga and Columbus, Oh) When: Columbus: September 13–15, 2013 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily Atlanta: October 25-27, 2013 10 a.m. to […]
