Small business saturday

We just love small business Saturday. It is a great way to shop local and support the little guys. Yesterday we supported the 7th street surf shop in ocean city. We were happy to find them open following the hurricane. We love our new toms!

Ocean city crib orders

We had a great time delivering a crib, linens and towels this week to one of our repeat guests staying in ocean city. It's fun catching up on recent events since their last visit. It's amazing how time flies!

Feeling thankful

With everything going on over past few weeks, we are just so thankful for our family, friends, customers and of course our jersey shore.

Bed making treats

We just love to leave treats when we make beds. Today we were in Avalon to provide linens, towels, aerobeds and bed making service. Godiva chocolates are our favorite! We definitely make sure we have enough for the house before enjoying some for ourselves:)

Small Business Saturday

We just love the idea of  American Express' Small Business Saturday.  Card members enroll their cards in the program and  American Express provides $25 credit when card members shop at local retailers on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

We are participating as both a cardholder and a local retailer.  We think it is a great way to support your favorite local businesses.  We think this is an even better way to support your favorite Jersey Shore business following Hurricane Sandy. So many businesses have been affected and could use your help!  If you are at the shore this Saturday, stop on by and buy something!  If you are not, why not give the store a call and get it shipped.  It may be a little more expensive but the Shore needs you.

Thank goodness for Pinterest. As a new mom I've been learning what to do in the middle of the night while hanging with the new baby. I usually start with Facebook then check out Twitter.

Over the past three weeks it's been so hard to check out both of them since there are so many devastating pictures of our Jersey Shore. In an effort to keep it together for the kiddo and any chance to get back to sleep, I had to look for another option.

We started Pinterest boards a few months ago highlighting some of our favorite spots at the shore. I decided to head back to the site and further expand our wall with cute options for families visiting the beach. We know many places at the shore may not be the same, we are certain many things will always be great. We will still have beach bags that need to be filled, beach photo opps, large family dinners at rental homes, etc. we hope viewers enjoy checking out our suggestions!

Over past few weeks we've been living between north jersey and ocean city area while we wait to hear if we can move back to Manasquan. It's been a challenging few weeks. Its been hard to not be in Manasquan with everyone trying to recover. When up in north jersey it just doesn't seem like all this happened. I feel awful going shopping and getting my hair done. It's like nothing happened to our beach. I can't expect people to talk about it all day long but I dont want folks to forget about it until summer.

Today we attended a meeting held by the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce with FEM, SBA and OCNJCare. It was standing room only. So many businesses were affected in town. This is just one town.

OCNJCare is a volunteer organization that was formed hours after Sandy subsided.For more information or the help out

In the next few weeks many businesses will be open again. Please support your local shore businesses this holiday season. Either go by or give them a call to order your favorite items.

Today we updated the website to include 2013 vacation dates.  This task used to be exciting for us.  This would spark thoughts of what the upcoming summer would be like... What will be  the  hot items for the upcoming season?  What will be the top delivery towns?  What will be the most busy weeks?

While we don't know what the next summer will bring, we will certainly do our best to make your Jersey Shore vacation as relaxing as we possibly can.

For now, we just ask that you make a donation to the American Red Cross to assist with those affected by the hurricane.

Ways to Help

It is amazing to see how the Jersey Shore really comes together to support those affected by oHurricane Sandy. Volunteers have been coming from all over to help out.

While in Manasquan to check out damages to our home, we were greeted by smiles from many locals - many without power and with significant damage to their own homes.   Children were handing out pizza, high school students offering coffee, restaurants providing free soup, a fire and live jazz.  We also saw a kids zone of games that kids could hang out at to briefly forget about the hardships at home.  It is truly amazing how people come together.

While there, we briefly stopped by the baptist church in Manasquan to drop off all our remaining L'Occitane toiletries from this summer.

There are many ways to help out following the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy.   Please check borough websites  for more info.    Alternatively,  donations can be made through the American Red Cross.

Hurricane Sandy Update

We are only one of many businesses damaged in Ocean City. What we would have considered significant at one time, it is truly insignificant when compared to the devastation across our shoreline. Thank you to all those who have expressed concern and assistance. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
