Halloween 2018

If you’re like me, it’s time to talk about all things Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I just couldn’t let the holidays come and go without squeezing in our Halloween recap. This was hands down our best Halloween ever. The new neighborhood, the girls ages, the perfectly crisp, ideal Fall weather. Everything!! The girls are still talking about it!

We really got to make the most out of Halloween, we hosted a party with a bunch of friends the Friday night before, couples costumes and cheese trays are always my favorite things! During the week, the girls had parades & parties at school and a trunk or treat at church. Then on the big night, we heated up some chili on the stove and got right into our costumes. We love doing a family costume, and since this year the girls costume choices already went together we decided to get in on the fun. Brandon was a good sport in his ghost attire, despite the overwhelming smell of sharpie! 😉

We had way too much fun trick or treating and stayed out until their buckets were full! My parents hung out at our house and handed out almost 800 pieces of candy throughout the night. Afterwards we did our annual “last viewing of Hocus Pocus” and went to bed in our Christmas pajamas!! 😉 So ready for all of the holiday festivities to begin!!

Hope you had the most fun Halloween ever, until next year! XO

Holiday Decor Favorites

It’s SNOWING in Kansas City & we decided there is no better day to start putting up some Christmas decorations!! The girls were all at school today so we decided to go have lunch at the Plaza & did a little shopping so I could grab a few more holiday items! I fell in LOVE with these vases which inspired my entire mantle, I can’t wait to share it all with you, as long as the sun shines tomorrow & I can snap some pics!!

In the meantime, rounding up ALL of my favorite decor items of the season right here for you!!

One can never have too many bottle brush trees!!! A few more favorites that I am loving:

The cutest milk & cookies for Santa set.

The best copper twinkle lights, these create all the cozy in your house!!

These super cute mugs because there’s no such thing as having too many.

Found some similar pink mercury glass light up trees, like the ones I got at the end of last season, these are so fun for the mantle!

The best price I’ve ever seen on a wicker tree collar, we love ours!!

A most festive cookbook that is also too pretty not to display in the kitchen.

Alright, I have to know, are you a decorate right away kinda gal or wait until after Thanksgiving decorator?! We are hosting a small family Thanksgiving here this year and I think all the holiday flair will only add to the festive enjoyment!!! Cheers friends!! XO

Cozy Holiday Season Favorites

‘Tis the season, my friends!! We have two months to wear all the festive pajamas, drink all the hot chocolate & listen to all the Christmas music, let’s not waste any time!! I have been so excited to share this post, rounding up everything you could ever need for the coziest, most festive holiday season EVER!!!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

You guys, trust me when I say, those grey fleece leggings will give you LIFE. They are seriously so soft and comfy, I sleep in them but also wear them for errands! Also, they’re warm and I need that!! I’m obsessed with all holiday pajamas, so naturally the striped one piece had to be mine, and what is cold weather season without all the cozy sweaters, pom beanies and warm slippers?!

A few more of my favorites:

This is probably the best basic long sleeve tee of all time, all of the colors are gorgeous and it holds it shape so well wash after wash.

A flannel Christmassy bathrobe (you know Diane Keaton would totally wear this over one of her iconic turtlenecks).

Festive knit mittens that are almost identical to the yellow ones I posted a few weeks go, you need these.

All of our favorite jams on this Christmas playlist.

And movies you need to curl up to with this holiday movie lineup!

It’s the best time of the year, why not make it last just a little bit longer?! Happy weekend, friends! Hope it’s the best ever!!! XO
