Post Christmas Sales!

Who got shopping money from Santa? I know that I often get gift cards or money because apparently, I'm hard to shop for! Well, if you're that kind of person, you're in luck! Nordstrom started their Half-Yearly sale today with some amazing deals up to 50% off! I'm grabbing some workout gear, like these great leggings for half off and this cute velvet crossbody under $20! I love these Bauble Bar earrings and there are some great Michael Kors bags in the mix. Here are some more of my favorites:

Winter Neutrals

3 days, y'all! My excitement for Christmas is currently muddled by the massive amount of gift wrapping we still have left to do. We are such procrastinators! We did get out for some last minute shopping yesterday. It was a chilly day and I was bundled up in my winter neutrals.

Men's Last Minute Gift Guide

With just 6 days until Christmas, it's total crunch time! If the man in your life is as hard to shop for as mine, you might still be scrambling. Well, here are some great gifts that are all approved by my hubby and will get to you with free 2 day shipping. If you don't have prime, get with it! Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial and if you aren't in love, you can cancel it. But trust me, you'll be addicted and it's worth it! 
Mens Last Minute Gift Guide

SONOS Starter Set - We have and love this! Any music loving guy would love to have this under the tree!

Tumbler - Wether he's a water, coffee, or soda kind of guy, bringing your own drink saves you money and this one will keep your beverage hot or cold for way longer. 

Touchscreen Gloves - I have a pair of touchscreen gloves and they make life so much easier in the winter. Instead of your man's fingers freezing, grab him a pair, too! 

Art of Shaving Set - The Hubs actually asked for this after trying some samples. It's a nice kit to start off with and they have great larger kits as well. 

Drink Cooling Stones - These are just fun. Instead of diluting your cocktail, you can use these cooling stones that you keep in the freezer. They're especially great for scotch or bourbon on the rocks. 

Baseball Wallet - If your hubby, boyfriend or dad is as big of a baseball fan as my hubby is, this is the perfect wallet to update his current one. 

Nest Cooling System - Have a tech loving man? Let him spend Christmas day programming your house to this cool system. You can control your heat and air with an app from wherever you are. 

Herschel Backpack - I think this backpack is super cool looking. It would be perfect for a student, as a briefcase if his job isn't too dressed up, or as a weekend bag. 

Michael Kors Watch - My Hubby has quite the watch collection and is always up for adding to it. I love Michael Kors designs and they always have something different and unique. 

Nike Hoodie - Give him a new hoodie to throw on after the presents are all unwrapped. You can't go wrong with Nike, in my opinion!

I have to get some packages shipped and finish up a couple errands today before break officially starts tomorrow. I can't wait to have  all my boys home for a couple weeks!

Girls Night Out Little Black Dress

On Friday night, I got fancied up with my girls, hopped in a limo and hit the town. We had such a fun night eating sushi and dancing the night away. I'm so incredibly blessed to have made some wonderful friends in our neighborhood!

I knew I needed to dress warm since the low was 17 that night, but I wanted to dress up! This cross back dress and over-the-knee boots did the trick!

These over the knee boots are everywhere right now and I'm obsessed. They're great for the winter, so you can wear a dress and still have warm legs! The original ones are on sale here, but there are tons of dupes now that I linked below!

Christmas Home Tour 2016

I just love Christmas and how much cozier my house looks all decorated. I would really like to just leave it all up year round! I'm not that great of a photographer, and I took these pictures on a cloudy day, in my not that bright house, so there's that. The good thing is I'm sharing these before Christmas, so go me!

This doormat is new this year and my sweet husband only had to drive 45 minutes to get it. I don't think I need to tell him it's back in stock online and in my store!

The living room is our main spot. We got the monogram stockings a few years ago and added in the reindeer holders this year so we would have enough! Stilettos and Diapers | Christmas Home Tour 2016

One of my favorite things is our Willow Tree Nativity set. It was a wedding gift from my Aunt and it's so special.

Every year, we get a gold Danbury Mint ornament from The Hubs family. This years is this pretty reindeer.

The cousins, siblings and I split up my grandmas santa collection after she passed away last year. I vividly remember them being all over her house as a little girl and I'm so glad I have a couple of them to remember her by now! The Fall on Your Knees sign is from Hobby Lobby and it's my favorite Christmas carol.

The dining room is very different looking than the rest of the house, but I like the little winter white thing that's going on. My mom's family is Jewish, so we light the Menorah along with celebrating Christmas.

Our Wallace silver bells are the annual ornament from my family. I have several from my grandmas collection mixed in with mine now.

The sitting room is my rustic space. We don't use this room much, but it's very peaceful for a morning cup of coffee!

I couldn't resist this adorable stocking countdown. You move the moose from stocking to stocking and the boys look forward to it every day.

Remember when I was asking for suggestions as to where to hang cards? I got tons of good ideas and finally decided to clip to garland on the stair rail. Doesn't the baby gate add such a fancy touch?
The boys have their own tree upstairs. It was our first one when we got married and is pretty small. But they love putting their ornaments on it and I love all the sweet handmade memories! 

Our friends gave them a train awhile back and the boys put it around the tree this year. I think it's so cute!

I found these cute stirrers and cheers wine glasses in the dollar spot at Target. I love the little bit of festive they add to the bar! 

And lest you think my house stays all nicely decorated all the time, I'd like to show you our living room in action, after I took the nap time pictures. This gate saved our tree when Callan was a baby and it's doing a great job again this year! 

Only 10 days until Christmas! I'm getting so excited!

Hostess Gift Guide Under $50

I have a couple more gift guides to send your way, but this may be one of my favorites. As someone who loves to host and favorite thing to collect is kitchen stuff, all of these things are on my list. They're perfect to bring to the host of your party, or to give the host loving gal in your life. 

(The images are all clickable, or get more details below)



Coasters - Our coasters all seem to disappear. Maybe that's only when you have a 1 year old, but I love having cute ones around, especially for a party. Loving the marble and wood mix of these! 

Candle - This specific one is my favorite scent and it doesn't hurt that it comes in such pretty mercury glass, either. If you're in a hurry, you can get a larger version here with free 1-2 day shipping. 

Pour Over Coffee Maker - After working at Starbucks for forever, I can tell you that every coffee lover needs a pour over maker. You may not use this on a daily basis, but it is perfect for company or slow weekend mornings. 

Front Door Mat - These things all ring true for me and basically every other mom else, it seems! 

Snow Day Matches - I just think these are so cute. Especially paired with a candle! 

Peppermint Snow - This is a perfect winter drink companion and will save a ton over fancy coffee shop drinks! Any host would love to have this in the coffee bar.  

Slate Board - One of my favorite things to serve company is a beautiful charcuterie board. I used to serve it on a platter, but a slate board is really perfect for it and matches any decor. I love that this one has handles and you can write on it. 

Letter Board - These are all the rage right now and they're adorable. You can change them to say anything you like and you could even create a little note for your host before gifting it. 

Confetti Wine Glasses - I have quite the collection of festive drinkware, but these confetti ones give me heart eyes! 

The Magnolia Story - Aren't we all loving Joanna Gaines right now? I haven't read this book yet, but I love them and their story. 

Plaid Slippers - We are a no shoes inside house so I live in my slippers. If someone is cooking and entertaining, they'll want to be comfy! You can use code HOLIDAY for 30% off of these right now. 

Gold Wine Bottle Opener - I'm sure every host has a bottle opener, but this gold one is just too fun! 

Apron - This one is just fun for the girly hostess in your life. Would be a great gift for your mom, MIL, sister or girlfriend, too!

Winter Green and Cowl Neck

Happy Tuesday! Loving that I can pile on some layers around here now! This hunter green coat from J. Jill is new this year and I'm in love with it. It's a great pop of color, yet still in my neutral zone and it's on sale, plus an extra 30% off with code 'festive' right now!

We had a great weekend and I got to go with The Hubs to see a Panthers game. It was such a fun day date! We also finally sorted through all the Christmas gifts that we've bought to take some inventory and see where we're coming up short. I still have a huge tower of boxes in my room, but I can't believe how soon that will be gone! This season needs to slow down a bit!
