Had to do a quick post to tell y'all that Target has crazy sales on clothing, shoes and accessories for the whole family this weekend! You can take an additional 20% off all the clearance with code EXTRA20. There are tons of pajamas, fab sweaters, basics and all sorts of other stuff. I'm going to stock up on a few pieces for next winter and maybe even some cute winter pjs for gift giving. Here are some of my favorites! 





Since Target is my go to place these days, I thought y'all would enjoy shopping as much as I did! Happy Weekend!

Fashion // Leopard and Sequins

Who's already racked up some of parties on their calendar this year?! I absolutely love dressing up and heading out to celebrate, and the holidays are the perfect time for that. Thing is, most of the "parties" we go to these days, are in the comfort of our home, or other peoples. There are kids everywhere and there is no lack of noise. It's still a ton of fun, it just requires a little bit different clothing. 

This year, it's all about a fun festive piece, with some casual pieces, to create a look that's holiday and baby chasing ready.

I will be wearing these leggings again for New Years! They're so comfy, but the all over sequins makes them fun! (You can still get them in time for the countdown if you order soon.) Everyone can use a good pair of leopard pumps. These fab ones are on sale for $19.99 and Rack Room has a BOGO 50% off sale going on now! If your hubby is still asking you what you want for Christmas, I'd send him to your local Rack Room Shoes asap!

Christmas Home Tour

Come on in, y'all! We've lived in this house for 1 year tomorrow and I haven't given a house tour. Mostly because there are far more empty walls than ones with stuff hanging and there are several things we still need to "finish" decorating. We did just paint some walls and are getting a little braver with hanging things. I hope we get rugs, curtains and all those things we still need in the near future. Until then, here's a little Christmas tour, starting with my DIY alphabet wreaths

This my be my favorite room in the house. Mostly because it's almost always clean. We had an artificial tree from when we were in temporary living last year, so we set it up in this sitting room, along with our "rustic chic" decorations. I call it my tree, because the hubs hates most of the ornaments on it. There is a leopard high heel somewhere...

I love Willow Tree and this nativity that we got as a wedding gift is one of my favorite Christmas things. The peace marquee is from Target. I know they have a joy one this year! The snowman and tree (I don't see the exact one) are from Pier One.

My sis made me these wine bottles for the "winter wonderland" decor in the dining room.

The Wallace Silver Bells are a family tradition. My grandma has given my Mom and Aunt one every year and now my Mom gives them to us girls. They have a different pattern each year and are just so pretty.

Remember the empty walls? Well, one of them got put to good use with a Christmas card tree.

Some twine, washi tape and a gold star make for a cute card display. It's even more full now as we've gotten several more cards in the mail. I love doing something different with the cards each year, but I may have to repeat this one!

We got a huge, real tree from the local farmers market. It smells so good! The living room is classic Christmas decor, including initial stockings and Danbury Mint ornaments that the hubs family gives to us every year. They're a different pattern each year and are gorgeous!

The last tree is upstairs. This one is the one we bought the year we got married. It's just barely 6ft tall and I had to string some extra lights around a burned out section. But, it has all the fun, colorful ornaments and ones the boys have made. I hung paper snowflakes above it and Callan thinks it's straight out of the movie Frozen.

That's all folks! I think I will regret putting up all these trees come January, but for now, I'm loving Christmas everywhere!

Last Minute Girlie Gift Guide

Are you a last minute shopper this year? I've been there plenty of years. While I'm mostly done, I still have a couple little things to grab. Most places I've seen go through at least today for guaranteed shipping by Christmas, so I thought I'd share a few things that I think you should get! I have all of these and am vouching for their awesomeness! 

Girlie Gift Guide via Stilettos and Diapers







Dirty laundry bags - How cute are these for traveling? Or home? Or anywhere? Okay, I rest my case.

QTee Converse - How adorable are these?! I got these Converse in a British Plaid and not only did I pick the pattern, but the exact colors I wanted in them, too! With a ton of patterns and even more colors to choose from, you can create the perfect pair of Converse for your loved one. Or yourself. Which is what I suggest. 

Blanket Scarf - If you don't have one of these, well, you just may be the coldest person in town. These things are huge, cute and perfect for all winter long. There are so many tutorials with ways to wear them, too. 

Blow Out Cream - My sister got me hooked on this stuff when she was here over my Birthday. I can't believe the difference in my hair when I use it. It gets it up and smooths it all out. I don't know why I ever didn't use it! 

Monogram mug - Anthropologie I love my monogram mug. Like LOVE it. It makes me feel fancy pants. The black version is available year round, but the gold only comes out during the holidays! 

Portable Charger - Amazon via RS I find myself more often than I should be, needing just a little more juice in my phone. I do everything on my phone. Emails, listening to music while I run, games for the kids, long chats with my momma and blasting kidsbop radio for endless hours can do quite the number to a battery life. Better charge it in style. 

Moisturizing Slippers - I got a pair from Geluxury and they're crazy awesome. They have a liner that feels a little gel like, but it doesn't get anything on your feet. It's infused with 7 botanical oils and is dermatologist tested to repair your feet. You only wear them for 30 minutes at least 2 times a week. (I've been doing about 5) I was skeptical at first if they would work on my super dry heels and I'm here to tell you, I'm a believer. In 2 weeks, my feet look so much better! 

Coffee Tee - Is there anything that sums up a Monday morning better than this? I didn't think so. This tee, along with tons of other styles, is customizable. You can change the colors that you like best. I chose this pink ombre. 

Still need a hostess gift? The adorable new Northpole line from Hallmark makes the perfect gift to bring to a party. 



I love the red and blue snowflake theme and wouldn't mind one bit having these given to me! You can order by today for Christmas delivery. 

Now hurry your little procrastinating booties up and finish your shopping!

Recipe // Peppermint Mocha Martini

While we were decorating for Christmas, I wanted to make a festive cocktail. We have a pretty stocked bar, but we don't have all those strange things, like peppermint schnapps or chocolate liquor, that were in every recipe I found. So, I decided to make my own recipe. I did, after all, work at Starbucks for a few years. If I could make a Peppermint Mocha, I figured I could make it into a martini!

First thing I did before serving, was dip the glass in simple syrup, then Christmas sprinkles. This is completely optional, but looks so cute!

Ingredients: (2 servings)

3 oz vodka
3 oz milk
1.5 oz coffee (I always have leftover in my coffee pot!)
1 Tbsp chocolate syrup
2 tsp simple syrup
1 drop peppermint extract (Literally a tiny drop. It's strong!)

Shake together in a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into prepared glasses and serve immediately. 

Do you have a favorite festive cocktail? I want the recipe!

Fashion // Winter Whites

When it's only 40 out, but the sun is shining, it's time for some winter whites! I must admit that I was very hesitant to pull out the white in winter, up until last year. Once I did it, though, I was hooked!

Shop the look and similar:
I just snagged this sweater at Kohls for $16 plus all their crazy discounts and Kohls cash. I think it ended up being $10 when it was all said and done. I think everyone needs some good, basic  pieces like it to throw on in a hurry. I LOVE the leopard foldover clutch everyone and their brother has, but instead of spending $220 on the original, JustFab to the rescue. Got it in their $25 sale! 

Are you a fan of the winter whites? And would you do an all neutral look?

Fashion // A Little Beachy

I realized that I never shared this cute shoot from when we were at the beach 1 month ago! The holidays have me in serious crazy mode and I just can't believe we are a mere 10 days away from Christmas. Where is the time going? 

I love this little outfit that Cooper picked out from FabKids. I also love his super serious face picture and the fact that he rocks a pair of skinny jeans.

Outfit: FabKids

If you haven't shopped FabKids before, now is a great time! With your first outfit under $15 + free shipping, you can snag a look you know your kids will love to put under the tree!

Fashion // Leather and Booties

I couldn't be happier that it's Friday! The hubs has been super busy with work this week, I've been out a couple nights and I'm just ready to hang with my family! We'll be starting some Christmas light drives, probably tonight. If you see a car full of pajama clad people with cocoa and popcorn, hey, it's us! 

I've worn this exact outfit no less than 5 times in the past 2 weeks. I can't get enough of the comfort clothes.

How good is that bootie I'm wearing?! I had to fight my sister off of them when she was here for Thanksgiving. They're so cute! I practically live in booties for fall/winter. They're easier to walk in than a heel, but make any outfit more chic. I love to cuff my jeans with them, or wear a cute sock peeking out the top of them with a skirt. There is literally a bootie for everything you could wear. Here are my favorite booties from Rack Room Shoes. 


I used to think that wearing a bootie would make me look shorter than I already am, but nope! Now I'm addicted. 

Have you jumped on the bootie train yet?

Christmas Traditions: New Pajamas

I'm a sucker for all sorts of festive clothing. Monograms on everything, personalized shirts for the boys at each holiday and themed clothing for vacations; I love it all. Christmas is one of the best times to squish everyone you love into coordinating clothing. My favorite? Pajamas. We we started a tradition 2 years ago, that includes everyone getting a new pair of pajamas on Christmas eve. We all put them on to watch Christmas movies, then all have decent, hole-less clothing on for Christmas morning.
