Florida for the NASA Parker Solar Probe Launch

IMG_7402.JPG

This week my husband and I have been in Florida for an influencers event for NASA. This was obviously Kevin's invitation to celebrate his inner space nerd! I on the other hand became just as excited knowing we could have some time at the beach between the launch ! Since it’s close by we decided to add Disney to the itinerary to celebrate our first anniversary a little early since we haven’t ever been together. 

Once I saw what the space launch entailed  I was up for the experience! How often do you get to watch a space rocket blast off into space?! I totally had a magic school bus goes to space moment in my mind , anyone else remember that book and show ?! 

This whole trip was super last minute even though Kevin was cleared for credentials a while back in summer. Due to the nature and actual execution of the Parker Solar Probe being prepared to launch from Cape Canaveral A LOT of factors were considered and last minute changes were expected. It was rescheduled price prior to our arrival.

I've been soaking up as much interesting information on this space mission as I can and I'm amazed how knowledgable Kevin became after two full days of tours and meetings non stop at the Kennedy Space Center. It's honestly an amazing experience to go and explore the center. 

I'm very much a planner so the thought of not knowing when to book flights and hotels was making me so on edge! I've definitely had to go with the flow but it's actually been fun and comical this whole week with everything going on.  I hadn't been to Florida in years since we usually travel outside the country for warm weather so I was looking forward to it to end our summer. 

Luckily we have a family condo to stay at for some of our trip before we headed closer to Kennedy Space Center to settle in for the launch that was scheduled to take place at 3:33 am on Friday.


I packed mostly casual and easy outfits for this trip. I was surprised that I found some NASA tees for us that were surprisingly cute and light weight. I snagged them and our Disney teee from Target!  This heat and humidity is NO joke so I spent most of this trip in swimsuit beach side or in some cut offs and tanks. 

Just as an update: The original scheduled launch for the probe was set and ready to take off and then with a minute and thirty seconds left the crew called it off. There wasn't enough time left in their window for a successful departure. Due to a gaseous helium pressure alarm raised on the space craft!

 So to the beach I will return Saturday evening in the middle of the night to in hopes for a successful launch! I am beyond exhausted but it's been so unbelievable to be out on the beach just 9 miles from the area of the site and experience how so much hard work comes together from such a complex process years in the making!

 Kevin will continue to cover the entire launch and his blog posts and updates can be found on Siskar.co! With his credentials he will be just a few miles away from it so we're hopeful that all goes well for take two! To watch the launch live on Sunday at  3:31 am EST check it out with NASA here. 

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekends!

Best of Summer Swimwear 2018

Now that it's mid summer ( cue the tears) I just don't ever want to say goodbye to summer days and nights. There's so many swim options for various body types and tastes with style. Some of my favorite looks are currently on sale and many could even be worn out as a top or bodysuit look. 

I love to mix and match some of my tops and bottoms and always have a basic black swimsuit on hand. Perfectly flattering and best for those hot tubs that can break down the colors in a bright swimsuit from the chlorine. 

These are some of my favorites from the past few summers that I've traveled with from the pool to the ocean !
