Holiday Home Tour

The halls are decked! And the floors need swept. Welcome to our holiday home tour!

I am at that point right now where I am just loving our tree & decorations so much that it already makes me sad to know we will take them down in two weeks! Hope you are all having the most amazing + magical December so far!! xo

Brunching Around the Christmas Tree

The holiday season brings everyone together, and we think the very best thing to gather around is food & Christmas lights! With little ones, it is sometimes hard for us to have dinners and evening get togethers with friends, so we love to find ways to make this happen in the morning or early afternoon. We partnered with Einstein Bros Bagels to share their festive box of bagels, the easiest way to bring the goodness to your gathering!

We got a Baker’s Dozen box with 13 bagels & two shmears, but they have many different size options to choose from. Not going to lie, one of my favorite parts about working in the agency world years ago was someone almost always brought Einstein Bros Bagels into our office each morning during the holidays. No reason why I can’t carry on that tradition and pick up some bagels for my current co-workers (even though they’re all five and under) right?

My all time favorite bagel for years has been the Asiago Cheese bagel (toasted!) with Garlic Herb shmear. If you have not tried this, RUN to your nearest Einstein Bros location & make this happen. The girls were huge fans of the toasted Chocolate Chip and the French Toast bagels with Plain shmear, and I can’t argue, it’s delicious!

So if you are a bagel lover or just appreciate a good brunch to go, grab a box from Einstein Bros (and use this $2 off coupon!!) for your next holiday huddle!

Christmas Gift Guide 2017

It has been a struggle putting together a gift guide this year. Our kids rarely play with toys and haven’t asked for much for Christmas, they would rather be cooking in the kitchen or painting in the garage than playing with anything they have in the house. We have rounded up a few of the things to share with Santa for our 2017 gift guide this year, but also want to make note of a few things our kids have been obsessed with if you are looking for some fun activities & craft type gifts for your little ones.

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

Our girls always love new pajamas, tights, slippers (exactly like mine!) and anything they can use for playing dress up. They’re super obsessed with puzzles, magnatiles and games we can play as a family. And we always wrap up a few books or fun stuffed animals, and this year a mini camera for Harper who loves to take pictures! The girls recently got these craft boxes and have spent hours playing with them, they also love these jumbo sticker books and barbie clothes for their dolls! Some of their favorite toys from past Christmases (if you’re still looking for a few things) are these play food sets (on sale!!) and these easels they still play with outside every day!!

Hope this has been helpful for you as you search for the perfect Christmas gift for your little ones, and if you have ideas that aren’t on our list, be sure to share them in the comments!! xo
