This is my favorite gift guide every year because it is like putting together a wish list for myself and it is so fun! Some of these things I own and love and others are on my personal wish list (hint hint, Ryan)! I will be sharing more specific gifts in lower price points and stocking stuffer ideas in my next gift guides, but for now, here are my splurge-worthy items that are great ideas for the ladies in your life!
This week, we kicked off my favorite month of the year with a bang! October is finally here, but it definitely does not feel like it here. It apparently got up to 101 degrees the other day according to our weatherman. It definitely felt like it. I am excited to see it cooling off a tiny bit next week. Maybe it will finally feel more like fall. We went to the pumpkin patch for Sophie’s field trip yesterday and had the best time! I shared a few more photos on Instagram. We played in a corn pit, pet a donkey, played in the bouncy houses, and picked a pumpkin (of course)!
My little man turned 6 months old last Sunday. I shared a little update on him here! I also shared a few bible verses for stressed out moms here. On Wednesday, I shared a small Amazon haul in my insta stories! I will share more Amazon finds on the blog soon, but for now, check it out in my stories highlights here or in the LTK app! Everything I post (and other exclusive app-only content) will be found in the app.under my name (logan_can).
This sweater was this week’s top seller by a landslide! It really is a good one and is so cute in person! It fits TTS and comes in several other color options.

I love putting together reading lists for y’all and this one is one of my favorites every year! Summer reading is my favorite. There is nothing like being on a beach somewhere and diving into a good story…or if you are like me this year, you are more likely on your couch reading and feeding the baby. haha Either way, it is so nice to get lost in a good book during the sweet summertime. I am about halfway through my second book so far and have ordered a couple of these on my list to read next! A few of these were suggestions by this community and I have come to really appreciate when you give me suggestions because you guys are way more in the know that I am on things and I always love reading and trying things y’all suggest to me! With that being said, Where the Crawdads Sing was the #1 suggested book by you guys, so I think it is safe to say that you should definitely read that one! I ordered it and can’t wait to read it next.

My Amazon posts and stories have quickly become a favorite around here, so I figure, why not give you more of what you want? I am going to continue doing a little round up each month of Amazon fashion finds and will also be sharing some of them in stories later today! While I cannot always try everything that I share, I do try as many as I can in order to give you my honest opinion on quality, so stay tuned to my Instagram later today for that! In the meantime, thank you for always being so supportive of my blog which helps support my family! We appreciate each and every one of you and the fact that you shop our links!
We went on our last family vacation of Summer last week. So bittersweet. We went to my grandparent’s house in Jacksonville again because we did not get to do everything we wanted to last time we were there. Unfortunately, it rained nearly every day we were there again this trip, but we still had a lot of fun. We went to a family member’s neighborhood pool where they have the best kid pool. My kid’s had a ball there. We also went back to the awesome park with a splash pad that day and they had so much fun. Man, it’s good to be a kid, isn’t it? I totally took it for granted.
I hope that these sale and gift guides are helpful to you throughout the season! Now is a great time to start Christmas shopping with all the great sales going on! I will be highlighting a bunch of deals and “gifts of the day” on my Instagram Stories, so be sure to follow me on Instagram so you don’t miss a thing! The Nordstrom Fall Sale is so good this year! A bunch of our favorites are included in the sale! You can check out all of my clothes and fashion picks here, or keep scrolling down for some great gift ideas!
My little guy is FIVE months old. Someone pinch me. The first baby went by fast, the second was faster, the third? It’s been a total blur. I know I always say it, but I feel like we just arrived home from the hospital. I feel like we just moved into our new house. And just like that, he is five months old. Weston is the sweetest baby. He is always smiling (unless he’s hungry) and he is much more laid back than my other two babies. I hope and pray he stays that way because I need a laid back babe amongst the high-strung ones. They get it honestly, bless their hearts.
