Just (the best) Sales!

Thank you so much for the sweet comments on our simple holiday decor this year.  I didn’t go as all out as I have in year’s past, but I love it just the same.  Sitting down tonight in a clean house with the warm glow from the Christmas tree while sipping hot cocoa brings easy contentment.  Ah, it really is the simple things.

And today, we’re back to our weekly collection of sales!  How are you doing with your holiday shopping?  I’ve gotten a start, but still a ways to go.  Jordan and James sat down with the Target catalog yesterday and circled all their wishes.  No, you won’t be getting an iPhone X in your stocking son! But maybe Santa will bring a new bike??  Better be good!

I know it’s easy to remember the big people on our list (kids, spouses, parents and in-laws) but we also like to give small gifts to those other important people in our life.  I’m thinking mail carriers, coaches, school administrators, bus driver, etc.  If you’re budgeting (who isn’t?!), you can always bake cookies or give small gift cards or notes too!  We usually do a collection of $10 gift cards and a handwritten card of appreciation.  I think even these small gestures go a long way to make these awesome people feel special.

And don’t forget, I’m giving away 12 of My Favorite Things to YOU special people during my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!  It’s been so fun connecting with you and especially those people that have won already.  They are always so surprised and grateful!  I just adore y’all!

The Best Sales

I found lots of great sales at Nordstrom this week.  They have a whole slew of women’s fashion on sale and are giving 10 Points per dollar spent!

After eyeing these forever, I just added these Levi’s ripped knee jeans to my cart.  They’re $73 now (normally $98).

If you need a stocking stuffer for your man, The Art of Shaving Kit is under $25.

My favorite over the knee boots that make your legs look so sleek are on sale for under $100.

You won’t believe this faux fur collar coat for only $58.

The long, cozy cardigan that sold out during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is back and on sale for $45!

Everyone’s favorite wide waistband leggings are 25% off.

A great budget friendly pair of skinny jeans is an even better deal now at under $40 in both black and blue denim.

This flare sleeve tee is only $11! I’m loving the cool, almost sweetheart neckline and the loose, short sleeves.

Looking for toys for the kids, Target has 20% off Legos, special deals on Barbie, and family board games.  We love to play Clue and Monopoly with James and he’s really good at both.

Sephora has the best gift sets, including this lip kit valued at $212 for only $47.  You can gift the whole set or break it apart for multiple gifts.  All of these beauty gift sets are under $20 and make lovely stocking stuffers.

If someone on your list needs cute sunnies, these are $6 right now and SUPER cute in pink or gold.

This petite sheath dress is a perfect fit and fabric for a holiday party, and at $50, you can still afford more Christmas presents!

If you love the teddy bear pullover, but don’t need all the warmth – this faux fur vest is a $22 cozy must-have!


Are you still enjoying this Just (the Best) Sale series?!  I’d love to hear in the comments so I can decide if we should keep it going in the new year or retire it!  What say you??  


Have a wonderful day friends!
