Happy Thanksgiving!  It's an extra special year for us as we celebrate as a family of four.  We had holiday pictures taken a few weeks ago and looking at them now just reminds me of just how lucky I am to have this crew that I can call mine.  This particular day was actually a pretty rough one as Dylan had an epic tantrum beforehand, we didn't plan out our outfits at all, and my hair is even still semi-wet from having just taken a shower moments beforehand.  But still, life is oftentimes messy, and I'm learning to embrace it in all its imperfections.  

We're hosting a little get together at our place this year and it also brings a bit of extra nostalgia as it will be our last year celebrating the holidays in this house.  I hinted at it before, but these last few weeks have been busy as we've been closing on a new house!  We won't be moving until the start of the new year as the holidays are crazy enough as-is, but I can't wait to share our new space with you as well as my adventures trying to decorate it!  In the meantime, I'm savoring these last few weeks of the year with these crazy kids.  I have so much to be grateful for and I'm so thankful for all of you that come to visit this blog too!  Thank you so much for this opportunity to do what I love and for letting me share bits of my life with you!

And because this picture is probably the best representation of Dylan and his 3-year old antics...  :)

I'm so sorry this post is so late in going up -- it's been such a busy few days over here.  The details are still getting ironed out but stay tuned for some big news that I can hopefully share in a few weeks!  Meanwhile, I've been all about the easy outfits lately and with all the on-and-off rain the past week, a hooded poncho and rain boots was the perfect option.  I love the pom-pom addition and the embroidered detailing on this poncho (not to mention the fact that it's super soft and comfy too!). 

A couple notable sales right now on items I wear all the time, including in this outfit.  These distressed jeans are my favorite and are $25 off right now.  They're petite-friendly, super soft with lots of stretch, and just flatter every curve.  They're a bit pricey but I can honestly say that I wear mine several days out of the week and have owned my first pair for well over 2 years!  Also, my Michael Kors watch is currently 40% off and is the first time I've seen it discounted so much!  While it is back-ordered right now, you can still order it now to receive in time for Christmas!

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

The holidays are in full swing, and it's that time of year where I'm always racking my brain trying to think of unique and thoughtful gifts for friend and family.  In the past (i.e. before kids), I've actually joined the mad rush of people shopping in store but now I've learned my lesson and shop from my comfy couch, with a hot chocolate in hand and not a single long checkout line in sight!  

Stores are also ramping up their holiday sales and I just love that I can save a little extra just knowing where to look and being armed with the right coupon code.  I love sites like that aggregate all the special deals, promotions, coupon codes, and limited-time offers from over 800 online stores all in one place so I can save time and revel in the amazing deal-finding experience!  

Using, I curated a gift guide for those guys are your list.  Because is it just me, or are they always so hard to shop for?

slippers | sunglasses | shaving set | watch
wallet | beer cap map
duffel bag | scarf | pajama pants

If your guy likes a close shave, I highly recommend this shaving kit!  I actually purchased this one for Adrian on Father's Day a couple years ago and he literally swears by it.  The fur-lined slippers are another gift I've bought in the past for Adrian even though I didn't think he was a slipper guy but he has since brought the out to wear every year as they really keep his feet warm in the wintertime.  I stumbled across this beer cap map just the other day and if you have a beer lover like I do, this would be a perfect gift that they could enjoy all year long!

With, the site features deals and special savings all year round (not just on Cyber Monday).  For Black Friday and Cyber Monday though, the website will have a Deal of the Hour on its front page highlighting a different retail promotion every 60 minutes. Offers will include free shipping, dollars off, percentages off, and free gifts with purchase at some of your favorite stores!

What have been your favorite guy gifts you'd recommend?  
Are you shopping for anything this Black Friday / Cyber Monday?
