FOR FAMILY FASHION

“My entire family wears Vans. We love to customize ours on the Vans website—seriously so fun!”

FOR INTERIOR DESIGN

“Jupiter House has a completely redesigned layout—including a second-floor mezzanine overlooking the courthouse—so I’m supplementing old furniture with new pieces from Nadeau. I worked there years ago, but they recently opened up to sell to the public. It’s all beautiful, handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces from around the world.”

FOR SOME LAUGHS

“I love audiobooks, and I just listened to Tina Fey, Bossypants. I want to listen to it again, like, immediately. It’s so good, it’s so funny, and it’s so encouraging for women. She talks all about growing up in comedy, how it was a man’s world, and she just learned how to break that glass ceiling. I think all women should read that book—or listen to it.

FOR A SHORT BREAK

“I’m excited to have my husband’s cinnamon rolls and our favorite La Minita Costa Rican coffee. And my 5-year-old can’t wait for the cookies!”

FOR A LONG BREAK

“One of my favorite spots is Isla Mujeres, an island across from Cancún. It’s one of the only places where we can be lazy and truly rest. At home, we’re at a restaurant every day or running around. But cell reception is hard on the island, so Joey and I can put down our phones and hang out on beach hammocks for two days straight. When we go with the kids as a whole family, we stay in the best hotel called Villa del Palmar, near the ferry.”

FOR SWEET EATS

“One of the funnest stores to go in on the square is Atomic Candy. We will bring the kids there, and we’ll take them to Beth Marie’s.”
