How to Go on a Business Trip w/ Your Hubby

So, it's Fashion Friday but things are a little different this Friday..I didn't get a chance to interview our amazing, fabulous wedding photog and friend, Ana Mihalic so hopefully next week you'll see some more of her amazing photos!

Yesterday, T-Slav and I made the 7 hour trip down the Croatian coast to Dubrovnik! We always have a lot of fun on long car rides with each other. We goof off a lot and I'm a good co-pilot and keep the driver happy, well-fed, and entertained. (OK, I try to keep him well-fed but when there are no restaurants or konobas anywhere, what am I supposed to do?! I did offer him my basil plant to eat though. We were at the 7th hour at this point so we thought it was so hilarious (or maybe we were delerious from hunger) thinking about us eating basil salads with a basil dressing and basil on the side. Lol! 
Yes, I brought my basil plant with me on this trip. I didn't think of it sooner to leave it with a friend in Zagreb (Elaine, this would be you!) so little baby basil came along for this week of T-Slav's business trips!

 I'm also pretty proud of the braid I did in the car! It came out really cute! 

 Side braid, sup! My hair is super thin/fine so this is great for me :)

When I hear T-Slav say "Wowwww!" then I know I must have done a good job :)

Since I didn't have a Fashion Friday post for you, me and T-Slav posed in our outfits of the day. I headed to the beach as he went to work. Of course, I stole his hat :) 

  T-Slav's work outfit. He's so cute :) I ironed his shirt this morning in the hotel cleaning ladies closet. Yep. #HousewifeProblems

 So T dropped me off close to the beach as he went off to work this morning

So, I played in the water and looked like this

Lapad Beach
I love being on the coast. The salty air is so good for your skin, the breeze feels amazing, and there's not a cloud in the sky! And you can't beat the fresh seafood. I'm really thankful I got to go on this work trip with Tomi, even though I'm on my own during the day.

The beaches in Dubrovnik aren't sandy beaches, they have small rocks and pebbles. This makes for a really cool sound when the waves come crashing. It's so relaxing to hear the sound of the pebbles floating around and landing on the ground that the water pushes them to. That sound will put anyone to sleep in the sun!

I love all the cool swing chairs the cafes have around this area of Dubrovnik. It's so fun!

I was walking back to the hotel from the beach and this caught me eye. Now, I just don't get why it's so special if Greeks selected them? Like, Greeks chose us watermelons, you tourists should eat us! Am I missing something?
Last time we were here (with everyone on our Familymoon!), the Eurocup was on. This time, the Olympics! So excited to watch them tonight! 
Happy weekend everyone!
