How is it already Thanksgiving next week?! We are so excited to be heading down to St. George for Thanksgiving to be with our family. It’s been a few years since we’ve been able to drive down for the holidays, as Joe would usually be working the entire weekend in California. So we’re excited that we are able to make the short drive down! We just had our first mini winter storm this weekend up here in Utah and things have definitely gotten chilly, so to say I’m ready for some warmer weather is an understatement, haha! I’m not sure if I’m quite ready for these Utah winters just yet!
Also, I rounded up the best sales from the weekend below!! And if your still looking for good gifts ideas for your people – check my holiday gift guides for men, baby, women, and stocking stuffers. Stay tuned for more gift guides to come next week! I’ll also be rounding up all the best items from the Black Friday sales next weekend as well!
Stocking Stuffers are usually pretty easy to come up with. But this year I wanted to try and think outside of the box! Because my people are growing up, its been trickier to find things that aren’t too babyish for the older two…but not too boring either. For some reason they don’t think underwear is very exciting! So with that in mind, I set out to find more creative ideas this year. I took those ideas + my favorite go to’s and came up with 50 awesome ideas…
Today’s Gift Guide is for all the ladies in your life. Whether you are shopping for your mom, sister, best girlfriend, or even needing a few ideas for yourself I’ve got you covered! I tried to include some amazing, yet still inexpensive items, as well as my favorite splurges – my sunglasses! They are the only item over $100. I just found this AMAZING distressed hoodie + joggers and I am in love!! Plus both are under $75Check it out, and tell me what your favorite things to get or give are!
The house is coming along slooooowly but surely! Right now our potential move in date is somewhere between December 1st + 8th!! We are feeling like we should make a paper chain count down to celebrate! With that being said, there has definitely been a lot of progress since my last post! I thought it was a good time for a house update to give you an idea of where we are!
Our sweet Harper girl is growing up faster than any of us like and we can’t get enough of her! Today marks 10 months that she’s been a part of our little crew and it just keeps getting better! I love sharing updates with you about fun milestones + her current favorites so I put together a little list.
With Harper celebrating 10 Months, I thought what better time to share Holiday Gift Guide #2, one of my very favorites to put together…BABY! As a mom of 5, I consider myself just a little experienced in buying for baby. haha!
I don’t know how it seems to happen every single year, but time has flown by!! And somehow Christmas is just 6 weeks away! I’ve tried to be on top of it a little better this year. A few weeks ago I asked you guys what you wanted to see most in my holiday content this year. I was thrilled to get SO many responses requesting Gift Guides!
I love putting them together and they actually help me get my shopping done at the same time! This year I thought I would start off with the HARDEST one for me…and a lot of you…the amazing MEN in our life! From my favorite go-to gifts, to some new ideas I have for Joe + my dad this year, I hope you find something that works for the men in your life!
Family pictures . . the thing every mom dreads + loves all at the same time! It always seems to be the day our little people are their craziest!! And just about everything goes wrong! haha! The prep that goes into getting the perfect pictures can put our stress level over the edge. But the results are some of our most cherished possessions. Being a mom of five, I’ve tackled the task a few times. And I’ve learned a few tips + tricks to making the whole process go a little smoother + almost stress free.
Not too long after Joe + I were married, we had to move out of state for school. I am super close with my family, and the thought of being away from them during the holidays was so hard. So Joe + I decided we should start some holiday family traditions of our own! Hunter was just barely 3 years old, and Hudson only 1, but I was determined to start creating memories for my little people to always look forward to and get excited about! I’m sharing some of our favorite holiday traditions below.
It’s no surprise that my “momiform” is always on repeat over here. Gimme alll the basic tees and jeans! If you are going with such a simple look, the key to making it look and feel put together is the accessories! Surprisingly, this is one of the things I get asked about the most both on Instagram + here on the blog. Where are mine from + what are my favorites, so today I’m tackling that by sharing all my must haves with you!
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks over here. The house is coming along well + I can’t wait to show you all a house update next week!! The weather is still warm (well it hasn’t snowed yet) I guess people here are still calling this warm. haha. We are missing the southern california weather right about now – but we are loving the fall leaves and all that goes with it. I rounded the past few weeks outfits (most of them are on sale) + all of this weekends sales!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and check back next week for some of the first gift guides of the season!!
