One of the highlights of my year is our annual Favorite Things party. Ali-Shaun and I started hosting it a few years ago and it’s grown into an annual tradition that all of us look forward to every year. And we talk about it ’til the next year!
Most of us met when our kids started preschool together and now those kids are in 5th grade! We are such a tight knit group and it’s been so fun to watch our kids grow up together. Over the years, we’ve celebrated each other’s triumphs and successes and lifted each other up during the hard times.
Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope you had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. I have a few plans, including house chores, shopping, and I want to start wrapping too. The house projects include doing paint touch ups in my office, James’ room and bathroom, and in the playroom. It’s one of those things that’s been on my to-do list forever, and I’m finally ready to tackle it! I already patched the holes, now I just need to paint.
Hi friends! Happy first day of December!! 24 days until Christmassssss!!!
I hope your week is off to a great start! I made sure to schedule my workouts for the week since I feel like I need a major detox after all the Thanksgiving weekend indulgences! Yesterday, I did 50 minutes on the treadmill at a slow pace and high incline. I like doing that because it’s a great workout – gets your heart rate up and works the legs and booty- AND I can chat with y’all on Instagram DM while I do it!
Hi friends! Happy Friday! How has your week been? It’s been such a blur here, but in the best way! I’m most excited for the Christmas card pictures we got of the kids this week! Praise the Lord everyone cooperated (with candy cane bribes, of course) and the pictures are the sweeeeeetest! I can’t wait to share them with you! This weekend, I’ll be preparing for Thanksgiving (just a small get together with my family) and getting more things done around the house. What’s on your agenda?
Good morning Monday friends! Did you have a good Halloween? How about that extra hour of sleep? Did you get to enjoy it? I sure did! It was nice to have a long stretch of time at home. I spent ALL day Sunday cleaning and decorating and it made me so happy!
Good morning friends! Well, today is the first day the kiddos go back to school, so we’re up and at ’em early for the first time in weeks! The excitement of the first day back makes getting up and out the door easier, but I’m sure I’ll hit the wall later today.
Hello friends! Are you still in the post Christmas haze? I’m moving slowly, and happily so. I’m sure I’ll get a crazy burst of energy over the weekend and start doing all.the.things. But for now, I’m still enjoying the after Christmas heart-so-full feeling.
If you’re looking for the after-Christmas sales, you can find them here, but I also wanted to recap our Christmas while the feelings are still fresh.
Hopefully, opening up in this way will let you in a little more on what life is like for me as a divorced mom.

Hello friends! Welcome back! Do you have any fun plans during your Christmas break? We are just staying home and visiting with friends and family. But one thing is for sure, we’ll be cozying up on the couch with our hot cocoa watching movies! It’s become a Friday night tradition to do a family movie night and it’s something we look forward to every week.
After school on Friday, we usually stop at a coffee shop for a little treat, then come home and have an early dinner.
Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! We had a looong day yesterday! I tried to get me and the kids a good night sleep, but Jordan had other plans. So, needless to say, I was exhausted all day yesterday (extra coffee please!!!) and then we had an unexpectedly long dental visit after school. Leftovers for dinner and call it a night!
Thankfully, I got some good sleep last night, which really helps! We’re off to the bookstore today for the annual school book fair and that’s always a fun event. Speaking of fun events, I’m so glad y’all enjoyed our Favorite Things Recap!

Hello friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Thursday night’s Favorite Things party was fantastic and I’ll be doing a full recap on my blog tomorrow. If you want a sneak peek now, I saved the party to my Instagram Highlights. I warn you : there is lots of hyena-like laughter and you might want to turn the volume down. 😉
I had a weekend alone, so I used the time to get organized, workout, and finish my Christmas shopping for the kids!

Hi friends! How’s your week going? I seriously cannot believe that we’re in the last month of the year! And Christmas is just 22 days away! Our Elf “Buddy” arrived on Sunday and Jordan is crazy for him! And I’m not above reminding her he’s watching and giving Santa a full report every night! 😉
I’m so glad I started decorating for Christmas in November because it always takes me forever to get everything done. Here’s a look at the Christmas trees we have up in our house (yes “trees!”
Hello Monday and Happy Thanksgiving week! Can y’all believe Thanksgiving on Thursday? Are you ready or still getting things together? I did my grocery shopping online for pickup today and I’m so glad I won’t have to go into the store this week to shop! Fingers crossed I didn’t forget anything!
If you’re new here, welcome, I’m glad you stopped by! I’m Megan, mom to two adorable kiddos – James, 9 and Jordan, 3. I’ve been blogging about home decor, fashion (Amazon too!), and fitness for 10 years now.
Hello friends! Welcome to a fresh, new week! We had a fun, jam packed weekend over here, starting with our annual trip to the Nutcracker Market. My Mom and I always have such a good time and I picked up a few new goodies that I’m crazy for.
Then, yesterday, Ali-Shaun and I went to the Galleria and tried on a ton of adorable things that I’ll be sharing with you in a big Black Friday post! This girl cracks me up and is such a good friend! If you haven’t met Ali-Shaun yet, you can find her here!
Good morning Monday! How was your weekend? I had a pretty low key weekend at home while the kids weren’t here. I’m trying to accept these times and embrace them, using them to rest and recharge and as a chance to do some learning and growing of my own.
Are you guys enjoying your Christmas break? It’s been a long and lazy last few days around here and I don’t know how many more cookies and cake and goodies I can eat! I’ve been indulging in everything, but I feel like I need to go on a veggie cleanse soon! I kid! I know it’s all part of the holidays and soon enough it will be back to the grind. But for now, we’re definitely partaking in all the goodies!
I’m one of those people that wholeheartedly enjoys every season and holiday, but there’s that extra special meaning about Christmas that makes it so beloved.
Hello friends! It’s the weekend before Christmas and I hope you are winding down and getting ready for the Christmas cozy. I think I will be right there with you AFTER today. There’s still some things to do before I feel like I can really relax and slow down. Do you feel like that too?
