Hi friend! How’s your Thanksgiving weekend going? I had a sweet surprise where I got to spend some time with Jordan and it was lovely!! We played, we baked pop tarts and more of Rhonda’s chocolate chip cookies, we cuddled, we played basketball and watched Gilmore Girls. She calls it “GG” and when we have alone time, it’s “just the Gs”. She’s so special!
Did you do any Black Friday shopping yesterday? I thought the sales have been really good. See my picks here.
Today, we celebrate and support the small shops that are working hard to fulfill their dreams and support their families. Here are a few of my faves with more at the bottom of this post!

MORE SMALL SHOPS TO SUPPORT
And on this special Shop Small Saturday, I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite small shops:
The Amish Craftsman – a personal friend, Kim and her husband have owned and operated this furniture store for almost 20 years. Their darling young son sends Jordan home with the sweetest ♥ notes! 🙂
Arianna Belle – she sells gorgeous, high end pillows and the ones I bought from her have stood the test of time. Still stylish and in great shape on my living room sofa! This leopard pillow is still my fave, I have the 20×20 size.
Being for Skin & Soul – all natural, vegan luxurious bath and body products
Big Blue Whale – if you’re in Houston, this toy shop in the Heights is a treasure and feels so special inside. We always go there for kids’ birthday gifts.
Courtney Barton – a personal friend with the sweetest heart and such unique, special finds!
Elyse Breanne Design – floral inspired paper goods and more. I’ve ordered several times from her shop and her items always put a smile on my face
JLM Design – vinyl stickers, because I’m still 12 years old at heart
Joy Bead Bracelets – I have a stack and my favorites are the personalized beaded bracelets with my kids’ names.
Preppy Prodigy – from Austin, Texas, Jennifer makes quality school and office supplies for the modern family
Russo’s New York Pizzaria – friends of our family with Italian food to die for. It’s the only pizza James will eat!
If you are delighted by any of these small shops, your order & positive review helps them tremendously!
Have a fantastic day friend!
