Cyber Monday Sales

Hi friends!  Are you rested up and ready for the week to start?  I loved getting so much time at home, but Monday is coming just as I'm starting to get cabin fever.  I've been inside almost the whole time (expect grocery shopping and Thanksgiving day) and have been knee deep in Christmas decor, glitter, and gift wrap, but the good news is the tree and garland are done! That garland was a bear this year and I almost gave up, but after it's done and all lit up, I'm glad I made the effort.  It adds such a warm, cozy feeling to the living room when we're finally sitting down relaxing for the night. 

And the dining room is on it's way to holiday happiness too! 

I'll be sharing the completed dining room holiday decor on Monday, but till then, I wanted to pop in and share more sale goodness happening across the Internet for Cyber Monday (with nearly all sales starting now)!  The Black Friday sales were crazy good and Cyber Monday just continues the deals.  

We're looking for a T.V. for the playroom/media room, so I'm particularly interested in the sales on Amazon.  I'll also be posting Deals of the Day on my Facebook page if you want to follow along with more great not-to-miss sale items.  I hate that a few things I was interested in sold out before I could even buy them. :)  Did you see the adorable holiday dresses for girls, and cozy stocking stuffers for her?!  My girlfriends are always among my favorite to shop for.  I have some more fun girly gift guides coming up soon, so check back!

Also, I mentioned on Friday, if you purchased something at Nordstrom recently and it went on sale (the Black Friday extra 25% off sale items goes until Monday), be sure to get a price adjustment!  I did that with two things over the weekend.  The faux fur vest (also in black) (both 45% off now) and a pink Kate Spade small tote (30% off).  And also, if something does happen to sell out, I often check back because Nordstrom tends to be good about restocking.  

Now onto the Cyber Monday sales!

Weekend Steals & Deals | Black Friday Edition!

Happy Thanksgiving!  We have been sufficiently stuffed and I think I've eaten enough brown sugar, butter and walnuts to last a lifetime, or at least until Christmas.  We started the morning off with Pioneer Woman's overnight baked french toast and it was so good!  I'll definitely be making that again in four weeks!  It was the perfect way to start the day.  I hope you had a great day, full of love and family fun.  We had to laugh at my mom's house when the first turkey that was deep fried to a CRISP was unveiled!  It will make for funny memories for years to come.  #ChistmasVacation :)

And now I'm sitting in my cozy 'soft pants' (remember I told you about those before at GAP - which happens to have everything 50% now with code BLKFRIDAY).  I live in mine and have the maternity version (size XS).  Lightweight cozy goodness!  

And perfect for perusing the Black Friday sales in!  Who hoo!  I'm so excited over the sales I saw online.  I'm perfectly happy shopping from the comfort of my couch with a hot cup of cocoa within arms reach!  

WARNING:  This post is looong, but full of awesome sales!!  Let's get to it!  And after you've perused these deals, you can check out the adorable holiday dresses for girls, and cozy stocking stuffers for her!  And I'll be posting Deals of the Day on my Facebook page if you want to follow along with more great not-to-miss sale items! 

Can we start with this Faux fur vest?! It's a favorite purchase and  SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, it's on sale for 45% off!  Only $65 now, was $125! If you bought it recently (like me), you can get a price adjustment from Nordstrom.  One reason I love that store, along with the free shipping and returns.  You can do an online chat for a price adjust if you ordered online, or call the store if you purchased it there. 

Faux fur vest!  SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, it's on sale for 45% off!  Only $65 now, was $125!

We have so, so much to be thankful for.  First and foremost, I'm thankful that I can even feel thankful right now after such a hard loss this year.  It was only 8 months ago that we lost our Dad and not a day goes by that we don't think about him and miss him.  He added so much to our family and his absence this Thanksgiving will surely be felt.  I have sweet, sweet pictures of him and my Mom cuddled up on the couch from last year's Thanksgiving and even though he was frail and missing hair, their love was strong as ever. 

I know many of you have suffered loss and hardships in your lives too and I appreciate your outpouring of kindness and genuine words of comfort when I shared our heartache with you.  Thank you so very much.  I may not know exactly who you are, but I know you are out there and I often think about our common bonds as women, wives, mothers, daughters, friends.  

And as life goes on, it is literally going on inside me with a beautiful baby girl being formed.  I didn't even know if I could get pregnant at my age (40), so imagine how doubly happy we are that I am now!  It's bittersweet that she will never know her Grandpa, but she is sure to bring so much joy into our lives that we cannot even imagine right now.  We can't wait to bring her home to her newly decorated nursery!

Life is good.  We are healthy.  We have a roof over our heads, comfy beds to sleep in, plentiful food, and a tight family bond.  Wonderful friends and a God that exchanges beauty for ashes, joy for pain.

I'm so very thankful! How can I not have a smile on my face when I look at this sweet boy?!  Oh, how fun an age 5 has been!

I hope your heart and bellies are full today!  Sending you so much love!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Holiday Gift Guide - 15 Cozy Things for Her

Happy almost Thanksgiving!  We're starting our Thanksgiving celebration early by hosting out-of-town family making an impromptu visit into town.  We're quickly putting together a menu of yumminess, and that's okay, we're just happy to all be together, relaxing at home as opposed to trying to get everyone to meet at a restaurant.  We'll be better able to visit (especially with 5 kids running around)!  

I hope your Thanksgiving preparations are going well!  I'm sending you good vibes from Houston and if you need a little break from the stress of it all, come with me and check out today's Gift Guide I prepared for you.  It's 15 Cozy Things for Her- designed specifically with rest, relaxation, and coziness in mind! Could anyone you know use that?!

15 Cozy Things for Her

15 Cozy Things for Her Holiday Gift Guide

Frosted Throw Blanket - Who doesn't love cozying up on the couch with a soft, ultra plush throw blanket in the winter?!  These comes in four soft colors and are 50"x70", 100% polyester and machine washable. 

UGG 'Fluff II' Flip Flop Slipper - These genuine shearling slippers are the perfect compromise between keeping your feet soft and cozy, but not too hot.  They have the added benefit of showing off your holiday pedicure (they have a tiny gossamer ribbon on them!).  They only come in whole sizes, so you may need to size down. 257 positive reviews and four colors.  

Topshop Leah Faux Fur Vest - y'all know I love this faux fur vest.  It's super soft and actually surprisingly slimming.  I'm wearing size 2.  It also comes in black (which I had to restrain myself from!).

Moscow Mule Copper Mug - Two of my friends (Adam & Angela) are known for their love of the Moscow Mule and are the first ones to get me to try one- it's a tasty adult beverage typically made with vodka, ginger and lime juice.  And of course, you have to drink them out of the appropriate copper mug! 

Faux Fur Infinity Scarf - One of my favorite finds from last year that looks way more expensive than it the $20 pricetag.  Update:  Thanks for letting me know it's on sale 40% off- only $11.98 now

Nest 'Birchwood Pine' Candle - Seems like people rarely splurge on a nice candle for themselves, but they always appreciate one! 

Cable Knit Knee High Slippers - How cozy are these slippers that have a non-skid sole?  Perfect for when you want to be in your cozy knee highs, but want more stability on the bottom. 

Cabin Friends Eye Mask - Seriously adorable! 

Josie Shaggy Vest Robe - My friend Kim gave me a similar robe many, many years ago and I loved it, especially because it was sleeveless!  Perfect for wearing while getting ready, after the shower.  You won't get too hot!

Faux Fur Pom Pom Clip - Just a fun little embellishment on a purse, tote, keychain or gift.  So sweet!

Coffee Mug - You Are The Best & Hello - Coffee and tea would surely taste better in these mugs.  I also love keeping my pens in them on my dest. 

Minnetonka 'Cally' Slipper - Holy cow, people love this slipper!  It's gotten 318 positive reviews and everyone raves about how super soft and warm they are and also well-made.  They have a rubber sole for indoor and outdoor wear.  They only come in whole sizes, so they recommend sizing down. 

Thermal Knit Sleep Shirt - This nighttime top comes in 10 styles and has those cute thumb holes.  I like these tops because you can mix out the bottoms to fit whatever you're in the mood for. 

Cabin Friends Pajama Set - This cute pj set comes in four different styles and are perfect for keeping you warm on cold nights. 

Sorel "Tivoli II' Waterproof Boot - This gift is practical and cute, and, if you live in cold weather, (especially snow)- very necessary because it will keep your feet dry!  It comes in three colors (the curry brown is a fave).  This stylish boot is made of waterproof suede, leather upper/textile, faux-shearling lining and a rubber sole.  It's gotten lots of great reviews too.  May run small, so order a 1/2 size up.
