You guys know how much I love Minted’s holiday cards, and art. I have several pieces in our home and love to add to our collection from time to time. I have started (slowly) working on organizing and decorating our office, so it felt right to add a new print in there. Ryan has also need some stationary for work, so I knew exactly who to go to! It all got me thinking that they have really great graduation gifts – from stationary to gorgeous prints that would be perfect for a college dorm room or new home.
Who doesn’t love Valentine’s day? Any day I get to celebrate my love is a good day in my book! Plus, there is normally a date night which is rare for us these days and a box of chocolates of flowers included which is double awesome! Really, though I have always loved Valentin’s day because my mom always made it special for us growing up and I remember always having a brown paper bag in my classroom growing up and we would all bring special Valentine’s to all of our friends at school. It was so fun and I always loved reading them and even saved them for a long time until I was a borderline V-day hoarder.
I love putting together gift guides because it gives me a good excuse to do a little online shopping and perusing! I have put together some of my favorite gifts for Valentine’s day. Personally, we normally keep it simple, but if you are more of a diamond girl/guy shopping for your girl, then go for it! Otherwise, this list is for you!
I can’t believe we are less than 2 weeks away from Christmas, and I really can’t believe how much more shopping I’ve got to do. Luckily, I have only easy people to buy for now. I got all the tough ones (meaning guys) out of the way first this year which was nice! Everyone has been asking me what I want for Christmas this year and I honestly do not NEED a thing, but I WANT all the things. So, I have put together a little wish list! I love reading what is on other people’s wish lists and I have put together a few of the things I’ve been eyeing. Most of these wants are pretty realistic and some are even downright practical! So, if you see my husband, tell him to read this one! 😉

It’s the season for Holiday Gift Guides and I am having way too much fun searching online for the best gift ideas for everyone. This year, I have been looking for baby, toddlers, women, men and now more specifically, the new mom in your life. I just had a baby 4 weeks ago (how has it already ben 4 weeks?) and I have so many friends and cousins who just had babies or are currently pregnant, so I have new moms on the brain.
This is probably one of my favorite gift guides to put together because I love to shop and find great deals on the cutest things and share them with you! Plus, it helps me put together my wish list as well (coming soon!). It’s still Cyber week, so there are some great sales going on and now is definitely the time to shop! I did most of my shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but that doesn’t mean I can’t buy a few extra gifts for friends and myself, right? Can I get an Amen?
Ladies, you deserve some fun and cute gifts this year because you work hard and in heels, no less! Unless you’re me. I’ve been wearing mostly flats since having my babies. Moms still deserve all the best things because most days you are covered in poop and spit up or whatever the kids had for lunch and bath bubbles and more poop, so, you need to at least be in some comfy yoga pants and the cutest slippers.
Here are some of my favorites this year! I could literally put about 500 other pairs of boots on this list, but I tried to keep the selection minimal. Maybe I should do a separate post on boots? What do you think?
Holiday Gift Guide for Her:
I LOVE shopping the holiday sales! This year,I did most of mine online, but I did get out with the crowds a little bit on black Friday and got some great deals! It is a family tradition for all the girls to go Black Friday shopping and I am not one to break traditions. Before Black Friday, I had not bought any presents and now I only lack two and a few Santa gifts for my kids. Today, the sales continue with Cyber Monday and I am listing a few of my favorite and picks from each below! Happy holiday shopping!
Last year was Sophie’s first Christmas and this year will be Weston’s. I love firsts, but there is something about the holidays that is even more special. Baby’s first Christmas in particular is such a sweet time. I love celebrating Christ’s birth and remembering my own baby’s birth. It is a wonderful time of reflection and remembering why we are all here in the first place. It’s also fun to dress up a new baby and bundle him in red and green and all the cable knit and flannel everything. We are all so smitten with our new little boy over here and these are a few things that we have loved and need to be on your new baby’s holiday gift guide!
This is one of my favorite weekends of the year, not only does Ryan have the day off making it a long weekend for us, there are always great Labor Day Sales! I love to shop sales because I hate paying full price for anything. I love to find a good deal. That’s half the fun of shopping, isn’t it? I rarely pay full price for anything, so I like to rack up on sale weekends. This year I’m focusing on Christmas gifts, but I thought I would share some of my favorite picks from a few of the sales I have listed below. I hope you guys have a great holiday weekend and enjoy a little shopping!
It’s Amazon Prime Day! I did not shop the sale last year, and am currently saving my money for Nordstrom’s big Anniversary sale (starting Thursday for cardholders), so I’m not sure how much shopping I’ll do today, but here are a few of my favorite picks and sales! I will update throughout the day if I find more great deals.
I love Father’s day because it is the perfect excuse to celebrate my dad and my amazing husband who is an incredible father to our babies. I think sometimes I can take him for granted and all he does for our family, so having a reason to celebrate him and show him our appreciation is exciting!
