This past week I’ve been trying to organize some of Harper’s things and clear out some of the things she has grown out of. Cue all the tears. As I was organizing, I realized it has been a while since I shared some of my favorite baby essentials with you! Whether you are expecting, have a little one of your own, or are heading to a baby shower, I’ve got you covered! I put together a list of my top 15 that can ALL be found at Target, my favorite one stop shop!
Summer is in full swing around here and with that comes some of my favorite days to celebrate! The first one in the line up is Father’s Day. It’s no secret we are all obsessed with our guy around here. We love any excuse to celebrate him! Sometimes the men in our lives aren’t the easiest to shop for. So today I’m sharing some of my go to favorites to get for Joe + some new ideas I have in mind for this year! You’re sure to find something awesome for the man in your life!
Time just seems to keep on flying by lately, and somehow Mother’s Day is just around the corner. I often hear that moms are hard to shop for, but let me let you in on a little secret. I don’t think there is a mom out there that wouldn’t think the best gift in the world is a nap! And maybe some ice cream to top it off. Haha! But in all honesty, Mother’s Day is such a special holiday. Mom’s work so hard day in and day out and it is so fun to take a day to celebrate the mom or mom figure in our lives! So today I’m sharing all of my favorite Mother’s Day Gift Ideas!
Time is flying by, and if it means winter is almost over I might just be okay with it! Haha! Spring is one of my very favorite times of year. We can finally start to play outside more, the little people are full swing into all of our favorite sports, and it just feels like such a happy time! For me Easter is always the sign of that new fresh season coming in and it gets me so excited! The aisles of Target are already full of yummy treats + cute finds, so I wanted to share a few of my favorite Easter Basket ideas for all my little people! I’ve broken it down into each of their age groups to make it easy to find some fun options!
When I was growing up, my mom made holidays so special for us. Valentine’s was no exception and one of my favorite days of the year! Every year we would make yummy treats + Valentine’s Cards and package them up for the neighbors. Instead of delivering them like a normal gift, we would doorbell ditch them with the little surprise. We LOVED it and thought it was the best thing ever as kids.
Now fast forward to when we moved to California. I loved the tradition so much I wanted to do it with my little family. We loved it so much but I always thought it was weird nobody ever did the same to us. Yes I was that naive! I had no idea doorbell ditching your friends and neighbors wasn’t the norm! I’ve continued to do it with my kids and they really look forward to it. It is such an easy way to spread a little love around the neighborhood.
Valentine’s Day is almost here and I can’t wait!! I love that this holiday is all about celebrating the people you love. Whether it’s a significant other, your little people, or your favorite girlfriends. It’s such a fun day! As much as I love the typical gifts that tend to go along with this holiday, I thought it would be fun to round up something a little different. I’ve put together a list of the things I think most women would really want. Whether you need some inspiration for you favorite friends, or need to throw some hints your husbands way, I think you’ll love these 5 out of the box gift ideas!
Valentine’s is just around the corner and my little people can hardly wait! I love the excitement they bring into our home over every little holiday. When it comes to Valentine’s Day, it is all about celebrating the ones you love. I love to try and include personalized gifts, so when Shutterfly reached out about the great products they have, I was really excited to create some memorable things for my people!
Valentines Day is just a few weeks away! If you’re anything like me it takes about that long to decide what to do for your hubby! Haha! To help us alllll out this year, I rounded up the men in my life and asked them all what they would want. I’m talking Joe, my dad, brother in laws, heck even some of the workers that have been in and out of the house! I’ve rounded up all their suggestions and listed the best Valentines Gift Ideas for Him! The best part is the majority are under $50!
Since Valentines Day is all about celebrating the one you love most, I tried and think of experiences for gifts too, instead of just things. With that in mind, I quizzed the men on this too and here’s what I came up with as my favorites!
Happy Black Friday friends!! So who’s ready for today?! Or have you already been shopping?!
