Valentine’s Inspired Favorites

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!! It’s been a whirlwind of snow days, birthday party prep and procrastinating classroom valentines until the last possible minute. Say it’s not just me. I thought it would be fun to round up a few of my Valentine’s inspired favorites, really just all the pink things + all the heart eyes!!!

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

These red & pink pajamas have been at the top of my wishlist since after Christmas & I cannnnnot wait to wear them all Spring! I have them in purple and they are sooo soft. They pair perfectly with fuzzy slippers, a glass of red & a cozy night in!

What are your Valentine’s plans?! We are going out on an early date night to our favorite dive bar & then home to snuggle up for a movie with the girls. I LOVE Valentine’s Day!! Hope yours is the best one yet! XO

PS. Also needed to add, if you need a good flick for the evening & haven’t seen the movie Valentine’s Day, WATCH IT. Soooo sweet & such an amazing cast. Bradley Cooper (and Julia Roberts) forever!!!!!

Holiday Gift Guide for Kids

Nine days until Christmas and I’m finally getting around to finishing the kiddos gift guide!! I hope you’ll forgive me! 😉 This has been our busiest holiday season yet and we are looking forward to really slowing down in the next week and a half! If you are a procrastinator like me and still in need of gift ideas, you are in the right place!

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

The number one thing on all of our girls lists this year was their own Saranoni blanket for their beds. They are everyone’s favorite and I cannot wait for them to open their own on Christmas morning!! They always get a new pair of boots, a book & a pair of pajamas or something dressy like a sequin skirt! Claire asked for Tiny Tukkins, Eloise asked for more clothes for her baby dolls & Harper asked for a Hydroflask and a Spirograph, another favorite from my childhood!!

A few more things! Our kids are really into fuse beads right now, they have a ton so we didn’t get more but if you are looking for a great gift for kids aged 4-10, I highly recommend these!! Do you remember playing with them as a kid?! I swear we made magnets for my grandmas fridge until our fingers fell off.

Each of the girls is also getting a polly pocket and as a little group gift they’re getting these fun ariel + her sisters dolls that I think they’ll love playing with in the shower.

They are all getting these fun mermaid rag dolls in their stockings (on sale right now!!) and a few other little treasures like earrings (for Harper), a Kazoo for Claire (yes she lost hers from last year) and headbands for Ellie. I also got them these fun little compact mirrors (if you remember Claire asked for a “little mirror” on her list) and always gel pens, stickers and scrunchies! Can you tell stockings are my favorite!!!

Ok friends, that’s all for now!! Off to gather Christmas party outfit details for the weekend, finish sending out Christmas cards & buy wrapping paper before it’s all picked over! Happy week before Christmas!!!!!!

Holiday Gift Guide for Him

Excited to share our round up of holiday gifts for HIM! This is a collaboration every year that I do with Brandon to bring you all of his favorite products and recommendations for the guys in your life! Hope you love it!

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

Better Sweater Vest // Hands down, Brandon’s favorite item of clothing. He wears this all the time, over t-shirts, button ups, sweatshirts, everything! They run true to size and are so comfortable!!

Ember Coffee Mug // This is a temperature controlled ceramic coffee mug, you control the temp of your coffee with an app on your phone (say what!) and it keeps it hot all morning! Such a fun gift.

Bluetooth Speaker // We’ve had this speaker for at least five or six years, it’s our favorite because it’s small and portable and has AMAZING sound. We also always bring it with us when we travel (blog post coming on our travel favorites soon!) because hotel rooms are so much more fun if you have music!

Slippers // I had these on my gift guide for men last year because they are just so darn good!! They’re so cozy and have a hard sole so you can definitely get away with wearing them to the grocery store.

Aviator Sunglasses // Brandon loves these Eric Church aviators, he bought them during one of the concerts we were at and wears them all the time. And they’re only $20!!

Airpods // These are a must have for anyone who goes to the gym, travels, listens to podcasts or just needs to tune out the kids for a minute or two.

Duffel Bag // Brandon’s all time favorite duffel bag for traveling. He has it in navy but I’m obsessed with it in white! It also doubles as a backpack with the alternative straps.

MVMT Watch // This is our favorite brand of mens watches, they are super stylish yet affordable. Tons of them are currently on sale right now too!!

A few other ideas worth mentioning:

A bit of a splurge, but the Solo Stove Fire Pit is probably one of our favorite purchases of 2019. This fire pit vents so that there is no smoke!! It’s truly amazing and we love the look and size (we have the 19.5 inch).

This better sweater beanie for cold weather, Brandon wears it every day when he runs with Marvin!

Also what Christmas morning is complete without an annoying dad flying his quadcopter drone all around the living room and getting it tangled in someones hair?

Cheers, friends!
