Can you believe that Christmas is almost here?! This year seemed to just fly right by! This is my son’s second Christmas, so I am doing my best to be more intentional about creating new traditions to do with him. He helped me decorate the Christmas tree, we strung popcorn and cranberries while watching a Christmas movie, we have been baking everything, and last week we made a dried orange garland to hang in our dining area.READ MORE
Happy Friday! I was hoping to have this post up sooner this week, but I have been trying very hard to be more present with my son during the day… so that means not working on blog posts while he watches Curious George Christmas for the 400th time. (That show is seriously on repeat for him, haha, he can’t get enough of Curious George). We have been spending our days doing Christmas crafts, reading his three Christmas books over and over, baking, listening to Christmas music, taking pictures by the tree, and playing. I wish this month would slow down because I am seriously loving this season with my little guy. Anyway, on to todays topic!READ MORE
Happy December! I still can’t believe it’s December already. I finally decorated the house for Christmas yesterday with the help of my amazing little helper. Ha, I wish…he actually just got completely distracted by the lights on the Christmas tree. I am so excited for this holiday season! My son is READ MORE
Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Can you believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away? I am totally shocked by how quickly this year went by.
To be honest, we are done Christmas shopping! What? It’s not even December yet. I know; we decided we don’t want to go all out with gifts, especially with our son. I mean, he has enough stuff as it is. I actually, for some reason, went on a crazy organizing/purging spree yesterday and got rid of a trash bag full of stuff and have another two to sell/donate.READ MORE
The weather is FINALLY beginning to cool down here (I think…) and I could not be more excited about it! I love the chill in the air and the crunch of the fallen leaves on the ground. I love wearing oversized sweaters with leggings and riding boots. I love making a cup of hot chocolate (complete with mini marshmallows) in the evenings.READ MORE
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? I mean I knew it was coming soon, but I didn’t realize it was next week until yesterday when I was looking at my calendar, haha.
Today I am sharing a cute and comfy Thanksgiving outfit idea. READ MORE
I don’t know about you, but I have had Christmas on my mind for the past few weeks. As much as I love Thanksgiving, my mind always jumps straight to Christmas at the beginning of November (although, I promised my husband I won’t decorate until December 1, haha 😉 ). So anyway, I thought it would be fun to do a few gift guides this year! Starting off with a toddler stocking stuffer guide.READ MORE
When you first get married and are still in the “honeymoon phase” it is really easy to date your spouse. It’s just the two of you, so you can go wherever you want, whenever you want. And that’s great! There is nothing wrong with that. But then you have kids. When you have kids, it can be really hard to get out of the house for a date. You have to think about your baby now too. But getting out, just the two of you, is even more important now than ever!READ MORE
Happy Monday! I was able to get in a good nap yesterday, so I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and ready to start my week! (Sunday’s are the only day I am able to relax enough to actually take a nap when my son naps, and I look forward to it all week! Haha). We’ve been checking off items from our fall bucket list! Last week we went to the pumpkin patch and I got some adorable pictures of my son NOT looking at the camera because he was too excited to stop for pictures! But that’s ok, I’m glad he had fun!

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I recently did a 10 day fall wardrobe challenge. I mentioned in my last post that I was not going to be posting about my fall capsule wardrobe. I am still doing one this fall, but I was much more lenient about the typical capsule “rules”.
Anyway, I spontaneously decided to join Carolyn, from UnFancy, in her 10 day wardrobe remix challenge. Basically, you choose 10 items that you will make 10 different outfits from over the course of 10 days. I saw this and thoughtREAD MORE
