Favorite Finds: Cozy Things

I feel like Friday somehow took forever to arrive but showed up before I could blink all at the same time. Somewhere in the midst of the holiday weekend, chasing online deals and pumping out gift guides, schedules out the window and allll the Christmas decor I lost track of my days. Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year, chaos and all. But oh man can it be butt kicking. I know I've share a whole bunch of links here lately but today I'm linking up with some of my fave mama bloggers to share our most recent favorites. I'm all about being comfy as the temperature drops and my belly grows so I've rounded up all the cozy things. I mean I could not pass on a super soft black + white tree blanket, buffalo plaid jogger pjs or plaid fuzzy slippers for Fallon. 

You can find Chelsee's here and Arin's here

Gift Guide: Toddlers

If I had to walk the aisles in stores looking for gifts for Fallon I would either come out with everything or nothing. I've always loved shopping for Christmas gifts, finding that perfect thing for each person on my list. Having a child to shop for has just upped the ante and now that she's old enough to get excited, I was a little overwhelmed with all the gift options. So I asked my toddler mama friends to shoot me straight on the best toddler presents and this is what we came up with.

Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

It's easy to get carried away with buying a bunch of little things for kids. Or maybe that's just me! The last holiday before Christmas has now passed and the Christmas season is officially underway. All the stores are offering discounts and it's hard to stay focused. So in an effort to keep from going accidentally overboard picking up all the fun little things, I picked only the cutest and well priced stocking sized items. Now get stuffing.


Gift Guide: For Toddlers, Small Shops

I'm a big fan of shopping small but I know handmade items come at a higher price. So Small Shop Saturday is the perfect time to finally snag something you've been wanting to get your little one at a discount. It's easy to be overwhelmed by all of the makers out there so I'm sharing a few of our very favorites. These are all Fallon approved so we hope your babes love them too!

Gift Guide: For Men

Is it just me or are the men the hardest to buy for? Chris and I don't exchange gifts  anymore #becausekids and instead put money toward something mutually beneficial, like new floors. But I did sit him down and get him to spill a few reasonably priced items for this gift guide. I mean if you're really generous he is sure your husband or brother would love a new 60 inch flat screen, a years' supply of beer or tickets to the super bowl. But if you're on a slightly smaller budget, maybe these are some better options. 


Gift Guide: For Women

Woman in general tend to be the easiest group when it comes to gift giving. So it can quickly become overwhelming to walk into a store or click on a website when presented with so many options. Enter gift guides. The holidays can be stressful enough so let's keep picking out the gifts for the women in your life simple and fun, as it should be. And if I don't have you covered, hop over to see what my friend Chelsee picked for more easy shopping.

Turkey Day Tummy Pleasers

It's Thanksgiving week and we all have food on the brain. I'm certainly looking forward to using the eating for two excuse and I'm sure Fallon will actually eat for two. My mom hosts the big day for our family so I just bring a dish. I hope to do the whole shebang at my own house one day but currently the thought of making an entire meal overwhelms me. So until the whole menu is my call, I'll stick with picking one fun side to make. Whether you're running the show or just showing up with your lone creation here are some recipes for inspiration that have my mouth watering.
