Happy Hump Day babes! Any one else starting holiday shopping super early this year? I have already ordered Sawyer’s big gift this year and already have a list of other things I am eyeing! Shopping for kids I think is the most fun! Although toddlers can be tricky since they can’t actually tell you want the want! Sawyer is a big fan of playing with play food at my parent’s house so I went back and forth on getting him a kitchen or the grocery stand. I decided on the grocery stand since there are a little more features with the cash register and I think he will love it! Also he pretty much needs that adorable grocery cart to go with it! For a smaller gift these letter and number puzzles are great! Sawyer is obsessed with his letter puzzle and can identify almost the whole alphabet now! I need to get a number puzzle next! Sawyer is so into climbing I think he would love this soft climbing shapes set! I hope you have a great Wednesday! <3
Happy Monday ya’ll! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! We spent the end of last week at Gaylord Palms and attended their Christmas event that just opened. If you followed my Instagram Stories you know we had SOOO much fun! It was the perfect way to kick off the holiday season! First off the resort is decorated so beautifully! If you have never been in a Gaylord resort you need to go! They are large atriums that are almost like a small town that make you feel like you are outside but not. There are also tons of restaurants, shops, bars, you name it! Gaylord goes all out for Christmas so it is beautiful to walk around the resort even if you are not attending the event. Although the Christmas event is basically pure Holiday magic!
This year there is a Snow Factory where you can enjoy the Snowball Build and Blast which you can build your own snowballs and throw them for points. This was Sawyer’s activity! He LOVED throwing the snowballs! They also have Snow Flow Mountain where you can go ice tubing! So cool! Other activities include gingerbread decorating (along with Characters! Nutmeg was Sawyer’s favorite!), Elf Training Academy, where you can paint your own ornament, and of course a meet and greet with Santa and Mrs Claus! You can also go on the Grinch’s Wonderful Awful Idea Scavenger Hunt or attend the Grinch Character Breakfast. Back in the St Augustine Atrium you can enjoy the #LIT light show, Cirque Dreams Unwrapped live performance, and The Greatest Story, which is a multicultural musical celebrating the story of Christ. But that’s not all! Debuting this year is their new I Love Christmas Movies! This is an interactive, multi sensory experience where guests can walk right on to live sets of their favorite Christmas Movies! Movies include POLAR EXPRESS™, A CHRISTMAS STORY™, ELF™, NATIONAL LAMPOONS CHRISTMAS VACATION™, and THE YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS™. Our favorite was of course Christmas Vacation! They even had the dried out turkey! Haha! All in all we had the best time and would highly recommend the event if you are going to be in Orlando this holiday season! We already can’t wait to go back next year! <3
Happy Friday Eve babes! I’m super excited because our weekend starts today and we are heading to Gaylord Palms in Orlando for their Christmas Experience. If you haven’t heard, Gaylord Palms DOES Christmas and they have a whole new I Love Christmas Movies exhibit where they are recreating scenes from favorite Christmas movies. Also they have fake snow!!! I cannot wait and I will share a lot more about it next week! In the spirit of kicking off the holidays I wanted to start with some gift guides! Today is all about your BFF! This charcuterie board just looks amazing , so much I want one for myself ha! Also I don’t think you can ever go wrong with wine glasses and these are too cute and would even make a great pair with the charcuterie board! Another thing you can’t go wrong with is cozy!! These slippers are my all time favorite and how cute is this robe and blanket?!
Happy Tuesday loves! I took a little break yesterday to enjoy my birthday Sunday. Griffin and I had the best time celebrating in St Augustine and Sawyer did amazing with his first night away from us! Can you guys believe Thanksgiving is only 2.5 weeks away?! I feel like the rest of 2020 is going to zoom by! I’ve been already trying to plan what I am going to wear for Thanksgiving so I thought I would do a little inspiration post! I usually keep it pretty casual during Thanksgiving since we bounce around so much. I love this cute and comfy look with the cozy turtleneck, and fun leopard boots! These boots were one of my favorite purchases last year! If you want to get a little more dressed up I love this look with the over the knee boots! And for something a little more classic this looks with the leopard top and suede boots scream thanksgiving! I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday! <3
Happy Friday eve loves! It’s almost the weekend and I cannot wait! My birthday is on Sunday so Griffin and I are going on a staycation to St Augustine and I am so excited! It will be my first night away from Sawyer so I am a little nervous but it is much needed and over due! He will be with my parents, who he loves, so I know he will do great! So today I am excited to tell you about a new denim brand I have discovered, Sene. Sene jeans are fully custom made just for you! We all know how hard it is to find the perfect pair of jeans and Sene takes out all the work of trying on a million pairs of jeans to find that perfect fit! After having Sawyer, my body is so much different than it was before making finding jeans difficult. I swear I am always a different size in different brands, which is super frustrating! So let me tell you my excitement when I found out I could get a custom pair of jeans from Sene and under $150! They are also amazing quality made in the same Japanese mill as Prada, Acne Studios, and AG Jeans! The denim is so soft it almost feels like you are wearing leggings!
The way Sene works is you can either self measure with their video guide, take their custom smartfit quiz (no measuring tape needed), or send in a pair of jeans to have them copy the fit. So simple! Also it is free shipping and returns and they will always make the fit right! When I first got my jeans I wasn’t happy with how they fit in my hips and they had me send in pictures so they could see were the issue was and they made me a whole new pair of jeans to correct the fit! Such amazing customer service! Have you ever had a custom pair of jeans made before?! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! <3
Happy Wednesday! I officially got all My Halloween decor put away and I cannot wait to put out all my Christmas decor this week! I use to be a person that had to wait until after Thanksgiving to put out my Christmas decor but the past couple of years I put it out in the beginning of November and it is so nice to be able to enjoy it an extra month and get in that holiday spirit early! With 2020 we definitely need some of that holiday spirit! Every year I always add a few more things to my holiday decor and this Days until Christmas sign is just too cute! Also this wooden nativity set is so beautiful and at such a great price! I am a sucker for throw pillows and this merry everything pillow is adorable! Are you all decorating now or do you wait until after Thanksgiving?! I hope you all have a great hump day! <3
Happy Monday babes! I hope you all had a fabulous Halloween! We had lots of fun having family over and making spooky treats for the kids! Sawyer had so much fun trick or treating too! He loved running around with his cousins and seeing everyone’s decorations! I love how creative everyone was with the candy shoots too! Now that Halloween is officially over I think we are going to put our Christmas decor up because 2020 is needing some holiday cheer and I cannot wait! So today I am wearing this adorable leopard dress I just got from Chicwish and ya’ll I am obsessed! Seriously this dress is so good! It is so flowy and comfortable and I just love the oversized sleeves! I paired it with some suede lace up boots to dress it up a little and then accessorized with a felt hat and sunnies. I hope you all have a great start to your week! <3
Happy Friday eve ya’ll and the Friday before Halloween! I am excited Halloween is on a Saturday this year even if we aren’t doing anything crazy! We are going to a trunk or treat at a Farm tomorrow and then I am having a little family party on Saturday with a bunch of fun Halloween foods! We may trick or treat to a few neighbors that we know too. It should be fun! I had the hardest time deciding on our family Halloween costume this year since I wanted something relatively easy. We decided on Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach! Griffin already had the overalls from a previous costume so all we needed for him was a tee and hat. I couldn’t find a small enough Mario hat for Sawyer so I just ordered them both hats from Amazon and ironed on the Mario and Luigi symbols that I made with my cricut. I found Sawyer’s little overalls from Old Navy and tee from Amazon. I also got my dress from Amazon. All and all a super easy, minimal effort costume that came out pretty cute! I hope you all have a happy Halloween! <3
Happy Hump Day babes! Only 3 days until Halloween! Today I have another DIY costume to do with your little one. Today Sawyer and I are dressing up as Belle and the Beast! Sawyer’s beast costume is actually a hand me down from my nephew (my niece and him were Beauty and the Beast for her birthday pictures, so cute!) and it fits Sawyer perfectly ha! How stinking cute is that little hood with the horns?! The yellow dress I am wearing is a maxi dress that I wore for our family pictures last year. I just did my hair like Belle with a top bun and added a pearl clip and then I finished the look with some red lips. Super simple! I hope you all have a great Wednesday! <3
Happy Monday babes! Can you believe it’s officially Halloween week!? Seriously where did this year go?! We are going to blink and Christmas will be here! Speaking of! Do you guys decorate for Christmas after Halloween or Thanksgiving? I have been debating this year! I use to be anti decorating early but I think 2020 needs some extra Holiday cheer!! Sawyer will be joining me on the blog all this week for some Halloween fun and I am so excited! How cute is my little Son of a Witch?! haha! I made this shirt on my Cricut and it came out so stinking cute! I had to dress the part and dressed up in some witchy gear I had in my closet. We threw on our matching Dr Martens (can you even at those mini boots?!?) to finish our witchy look! I hope you all have a fabulous start to your week! <3
