Holiday Home Tour

Holiday Home Tour

Hi friend!  Sorry I missed you yesterday.  My daughter wasn’t feeling well and that threw my day all out of whack. Thankfully, she’s much better now and back at school.

For many of us with kiddos, it’s the last school week before Christmas break!  We have a 4-day week and Friday is the class parties and Advent calendar.  My son has mid-term exams, but we definitely already have our minds on the holiday break.  You too?

HOLIDAY HOME TOUR

It’s our first Christmas in our new home and I can’t wait to welcome you inside!

Hi friend! Yay for Friday! We have a few things on the agenda- all good things.  A birthday party and helping box up toys for Ceci’s toy drive for Texas Children’s hospital.  Everyone has been so generous in giving, it warms my mama heart.

I’ve also gotten thank you notes from several teachers that received my Tuesday Giving classroom donations.  I know those things will really brighten the kids’ and teachers’ days. ♥

If you missed it this week, I shared a new December Loves Giveaway.  I’ll pick one winner from my blog subscribers and one winner that likes all my December Instagram posts

Binge Watch For Less During the Holidays

Binge Watch For Less During the Holidays

Hi friend! I can’t believe we only have a little over a week until school is out for Christmas break.  Do we have any big plans? Nope!

I’ve learned over the years not to get too busy scheduling things, they tend not to happen anyway.  We’ll probably just play it by ear and spend lots of cozy days at home.

My son loves having friends over or visiting at their house and Jordan is my little shadow that loves baking, bottle flipping/dice stacking and basketball.

When James does have his friends over, they love to watch all their favorite sports through our SlingTV

Hi friend! I’m so excited to invite you in to our 2022 Favorite Things Party!  The party was absolutely fantastic and a highlight of the year for me.

Honestly, I didn’t want the night to end.  It was so wonderful to get all my girlfriends together under one roof and just relax and have fun together.

Hi friend!  I hope you are having a fabulous week and looking forward to the first weekend in December!  Can you believe we’re already in the last month of the year?! Jordan asks or reminds me everyday how many days ’til Christmas.  It makes me happy being an older mama to still have a child that has so much joy and exuberance for the holiday.  It’s the magic of Christmas!

And, it’s our Favorite Things party tonight! I’ve been a little under the weather this week, but I tried to lay low and conserve my energy for tonight and thankfully,

Hi friend!  How’s your week going? Things are already heating up over here with two basketball games, an end-of-season football party, my son’s haircut (it looks so good!), the book fair, prepping goodies for our delivery drivers and of course, our Favorite Things Party on Friday!  All good things, but definitely a lot! You know the feeling!

Don’t tell, but here’s what I’m bringing to our party as my favorite thing this year.  We have a $30 limit, and I was able to score this and this on sale so I didn’t go over budget.

Hi friend! Did you have a good weekend?!  I started to feel under the weather, which is so crazy because I was sick at this exact time last year!  I remember because it was the week of our annual Favorite Things Party!

Our party is this Friday and I’m so excited to get together with all the girls!  It’s one of the most fun things I do all year.  And we get to do it in my new house this year!  Of course, we’ll have to find a new spot for our annual staircase photo- but I think my new staircase will do just fine!

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.

Gifts Under $25, $50 & Over $100 | The Best Black Friday Sales

Hi friend! Happy Thanksgiving! How has your day been?  I spent the day with my family and I’m ever so thankful for them.  I’ve often said that we are a small, but tight bunch and it still holds true.  I’m so glad we live in the same city and get to see each other often.  Our kids are getting to grow up together and that means so much to me.

We had a feast of a meal, laughed till we cried and then enjoyed too much dessert.  And, we drew kids’ names for our annual Christmas gift exchange and decided we’ll do a While Elephant gift exchange for the adults again this year.

Hi friend! Happy almost Thanksgiving!  I’m in wind down mode for the week and looking forward to chilling with my family on Thursday. We’ll be getting together at my brother’s house and I can’t wait!  And then sometime after dinner and dessert, all the ladies will start comparing Christmas notes and deals on things we have on our lists!

Shopping is more fun with a friend- which brings me to today’s post.  Ali-Shaun is back with Part 2 of our try-on! We had so many outfits to share that we broke it into two parts.  Catch Part 1 here!

Hi friend!  Are you in full Thanksgiving mode yet?!  We’ll be celebrating the holiday at my brother and sister-in-law’s house and the whole menu is pot luck so no one has a super heavy load. Y’all know my brother is the grill master and he’ll be cooking the turkey.  Gotta love a man that can cook!

And you know we’ll be shopping the Black Friday online sales after the dessert sets in!  I always love seeing what deals my sisters are after and this year they can buy gifts and stock up on beauty faves at Kohl’s

Hi friend!  Happy Friday!  It’s been one heck of a week here trying to get my ducks in a row before Thanksgiving next week!  And with a hurt back.  But, thankfully, I’m starting to feel much better so I think I’m on the mend!

We had a fun week on the blog, if you missed it I shared Amazon Stocking Stuffers and Target Holiday Decor.

Hi friend!  On Monday morning I was getting ready for Ali-Shaun to come over and try on clothes for our special Black Friday Style A Friend post.  I ordered the mother load of cute winter and holiday clothes and couldn’t wait to get started!

sneak peek here

Well, I went to move the  little Christmas tree in room so we could have it showing in the background and I THREW OUT MY BACK.  🙁

I couldn’t believe it.  The tree isn’t even that heavy, but I must have lifted it wrong because I’ve been in so much pain ever since.

Hi friend! Welcome to a fresh, new week!  This one’s gonna be packed with trying to get caught up on work so that I can take it easier next week, which is already Thanksgiving!  Can you believe it’s almost here?!  Sometimes we have to go fast so we can go slow. That’s this week for me!

My mom and I had a great time at the Nutcracker Market.  The hunky Houston Firefighters had a booth and my mom got a picture with them.  She was sooo happy!  Shh, don’t tell her the calendar I bought is one of her Christmas gifts!

Hi friend! Yay for Friday!  And the Nutcracker Market.  While you’re reading this, I’ll probably be there with my mom.  I’ll be sure to share on Stories what we see and find!

We had a fun week on the blog, if you missed it I shared a new Loves Giveaway and my top 20 favorite things of 2022.  That list definitely took some thinking about to narrow down, but I feel very good about the items I chose to share.  They all make great Christmas gifts too!

2022 TOP 20 FAVORITE THINGS

2022 TOP 20 FAVORITE THINGS

Hi friend! I hope you are having a fabulous week so far! It’s one of my favorite weeks of the year because my mom and I are heading to our local holiday fair – the annual Nutcracker Market on Friday!  It’s a tradition for just the two of us to go every year and I love getting that one-on-one time with her.  We always stop for mimosas first and then hit up all the shops. So fun!

For me, it’s that day that signals the start of the holiday season and all the festive things to come until the end of the year.
