I love coming up with cute Christmas outfit ideas for different occasions, but this year was a small challenge trying to dress the bump and still feel festive. I found some really beautiful maternity and non-maternity options for y’all and I hope this is helpful! As always, thank you for shopping through my links. I earn a small commission when you do and it helps keep this space going and allows me to continue putting these outfits together for y’all! On to the first outfit:
Stocking stuffers are possibly my favorite gifts to buy for Christmas! I love to get random but useful things for my family, or sneak big (little) surprises into their stockings so that just when they things they are finished opening gifts, there is still a big surprise waiting for them. I am sharing ideas for the entire family below, but be sure to check back because I am always finding more and adding to these guides! I hope you find some great goodies for the people you love most!
Stocking Stuffers for Her:
I don’t know about you, but I love festive holiday fashion. It is so fun to play around with different colors and textures this time of year. I love all things cozy and comfy! I also like to add a pop of color when I can. When I first saw this sweater in the store, I was instantly attracted to it. It is the perfect shade of bubblegum pink and it is so soft. This skirt is something I am not typically drawn to as a SAHM, but when I saw the colors, I had to have it. It will literally go with anything! Hunter green, mustard yellow, red, pink, black, etc. There are so many beautiful colors in this skirt that make is so festive and beautiful. I love that I can pair so many colors and styles with it. Sweaters, blouses and even the right tee with a cardigan would be so gorgeous!
I’m not sure if you noticed, but I took a whole week off of blogging/working for the first time since I started over 4 years ago. To say it was needed would be the understatement of the century. Ryan had the whole week off, too and we enjoyed every minute of it. I must say, it did give me a chance to miss writing and taking photos and playing on social media and of course, all of you! It made me so thankful for this community and the friendships I have made with some of you through this. I am playing a serious game of catch up and going through hundreds of emails today, but it was all so worth the break. We were lazy and it was amazing. I haven’t seen our kids so happy in long time and it kind of made me reevaluate things a little bit, but that’s another story for another time. I want to catch you all up on our Christmas!
It’s Friday and Christmas is only 2 days away!! Who’s ready? We have had a CRAZY week leading up to Christmas. Ryan has been out of town and had lot’s of meetings, so I have basically been doing it alone with the three kids and had them alone overnight for the first time since having Weston and I am Worn. Out. I am planning on resting today because we are celebrating with all of our family tomorrow and Sunday and it will be cuh-ray-zee!!
Until Christmas festivities, here are a few of my favorites this month:
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! 😉
I love to read, but I haven’t had a lot of time to dive into books this year. With the arrival of our new baby and moving, I feel like I won’t have a lot of time to read before the new year, but I am going to really put forth effort. It truly is my favorite pastime and I have always enjoyed reading. Here are a few holiday-related and non-holiday books to add to your reading calendar this month!
If you’ve been around my blog for a while, you know how much I adore Minted. I rely on them every year for our holiday cards and wouldn’t buy them anywhere else! They are so beautiful and wonderful quality. I am never disappointed. They have so many holiday cards and decor to choose from, so I am making it easy on you and have pulled out my absolute favorites!

I absolutely love entertaining whenever I can. Now that we are (almost) moved in our new house, I am getting so excited to start having friends and family over again. That is one thing I have missed terribly over this last year. With the holidays right around the corner, I have been in the baking mood! Last Saturday while we were moving, I decided to bake some delicious and festive sugar cookie Christmas donuts! This was my first time trying my hand at donuts, but they actually turned out perfectly! I even brought extras to my parent’s house for them to enjoy and they loved them! Of course, Hampton had to help me put sprinkles on them and he was determined to use blue sprinkles on his, so I let him devour that one fresh out of the oven – needless to say, he was a big fan. I love letting my kids help my in the kitchen – especially as they get older. It is so much fun watching them learn and explore.
