Sometimes, you just have to tap into your inner road trip fangirl, pack your bags with the girls, and hit the road with the music on FULL blast! Remember that movie where three best girlfriends head out for the summer road trip of a lifetime? We managed to do just that a few weeks ago!!

As we’ve been working so much from the office and Ally’s pool, I thought it would be fun to switch things up and take a team mini-road trip to Beal’s Point in Granite Bay. As a busy mom and wife, getaways are always cherished experiences – whether it’s a quick day trip or even a week at the lake. I have to tell you, we planned this trip SUPER last minute. I wish I would have had the BuyPower Card® from Capital One♦, which could have been used on everything from gas, food, drinks, to even the toll! If you’re not familiar and are tossing around the idea of buying a new car – you NEED to know about this card! The BuyPower Card from Capital One pretty much lets you turn anything you buy on the card into Earnings* toward a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac vehicle! There is no limit on the amount you can earn or redeem, and Earnings don’t expire. Just imagine all the supplies you need for a craft project or furniture for a room makeover! The bases are covered!

Wondering how to get the watermelon sliced hearts so tiny? We used a tiny heart cookie cutter made for fondant. So brilliant! Then, we used a kabob stick to add blueberries to the mix. I recommend making these the morning of your picnic to make sure they’re extra fresh.

I poured iced lemonade into plastic pink glasses and topped each glass with a toothpick with a gold star on top. You can make these or even buy them at the craft store. Love the pink and gold together!

A toast is a must! Every day is a reason to celebrate!

I hope this inspires you to rally up your favorite girlfriends and create your own amazing road trip moments!! And don’t forget to consider the BuyPower Card from Capital One beforehand! I know it’s so easy to get caught up in the “must dos,” but it’s also so important to take some time out for yourself and do what makes your cup feel full! =)
