Hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving. It’s been so nice to be home. I should be on the computer a lot more than I have been and I don’t even feel a smidge guilty. I’ll be back later today with more sales, but I think the best one is Tuckernuck. They have something for everyone,…
I just wanted to take the day today to thank you for reading my blog and following along. It means everything to me, it really does. One thing that I’ve been trying to do more of is to let people know when I appreciate something. Saying “thanks” and “I appreciate you” do go hand in hand,…
I’m in Tampa right now for Thanksgiving! It’s always so nice to get to visit with my family and sleep in my childhood bed. (I know I’m biased, but I think that it’s the most comfortable bed in the entire world.)
Continuing with the holiday outfit theme, I’m sharing a festive outfit that could totally work for the office or a get together with friends. The skirt is the cutest.
Okay, this may be one of my favorite holiday looks to date. Have you guys noticed that I haven’t worn a single holiday dress yet on here? It’s because I haven’t purchased one! I’ve been way more into the cute tops and pants or blouses and skirts.
This top is pretty much everything with the Stewart plaid and bow on the back.
Why are guys so hard to shop for?! I’m rounding up some gifts that I think would be perfect for all kinds of men. But at the end of the day, you really have to have the guy in mind and put yourself in his shoes. What does he want? What does he love? And what does he need?
I will share a few things that have been HITS with my dad. He’s probably the hardest guy in the world to shop for. Very picky (haha) and very particular. Last year I hit it out of the freaking ballpark with him.
Last year, my mom made one of Louisa’s recipes, and it was a huge hit. Wish I could take some kind of credit, but nope 😉. Well, actually, for the past few years I have been making Brussels sprouts for the family. Once daylight savings comes around, I start really looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner. And, even…
I know a lot of emphasis is put on finding the perfect dresses for holiday parties. I’m totally guilty of picking out a few dresses and skirts and not having enough events to wear them too. Frankly, my family does pretty casual holidays. We might put on something for dinner (particularly Thanksgiving), but most of the day is spent in comfortable clothes. And on Christmas, we spend a lot of time in pajamas and loungewear!
One thing that I’m trying to get a head start on is my holiday gift wrapping situation. I don’t think I’m spending Christmas at home for the first time in my entire life (completely mixed feelings on this) and so I have to be on top of my gift giving! In year’s past, I’ve had all gifts shipped to my parent’s house and then when I get there I spend an afternoon wrapping everything. I think I’m going to have to get my mom in on my wrapping this year. (And hopefully, wrangle my sister into wrapping my mom’s.)
Picking out paper and ribbon and spending the time to wrap the gifts is so much fun. Sometimes I go to Target or Paper Source, but I think I’m going to buy everything online this year. I got some wrapping paper sheets from Minted last year and loved the quality and cuteness. Seriously stood out– so much better than a cheap roll!
