Christmas Doodle Town

Christmas Jams

With some majorly chilly temperatures this week we've been lighting the fire at night and I've started to pack up some of the Fall decor to get ready for CHRISTMAS!  All that to say, we've been feeling festive at our house and I thought I'd share my Christmas playlist with y'all.

You should be able to play the playlist directly below...




... or you can find me on Spotify and follow along there :)  It's pretty varied and I think has something for everyone... "Go Tell It On The Mountain" has been a favorite around our house for YEARS and if you've been following here for a while you might remember the year that baby Griffin danced to this song NON-STOP.

And just to keep the festive mood going I thought I'd add some of our FAVORITE Christmas JAMMIES to go along with the JAMS above :)  #cheesy  #iknow



I'd love to know what your favorite Christmas song is and/or what song you hate :)  I am NOT a fan of "Mary, Did You Know" and I know people have very strong opinions about that song.  Also not a fan of Silver Bells and when I was little my Granny would come to visit and make me play it for her over and over while she sat next to me on the piano bench and sang - hahaha - I'd offer other songs but it was ALWAYS Silver Bells :) 

Happy Wednesday, friends!!!

Thanksgiving Touches

Today I'm sharing a few Thanksgiving "touches" I have around the house to tide us over until ALLLLL the twinkle lights come out.  I kept everything pretty simple and opted for the blue/green/grey palette rather than the orange/gold/rust that I typically use.

NYC Girls Trip

I got back Tuesday afternoon from a whirlwind few days in NYC with my very best friends and I am SO EXCITED to share a little bit about it.  This was my third trip to NYC and I was more than excited about handing the reins over to  Shay and Erika and letting them run with the itinerary.  I feel like our friend group could go to IKEA for the day and have a blast so I wasn't too concerned about having a good time :)  and it was SO NICE to get to sit back and just be along for the ride. 

We hit the ground running at THREE FORTY FIVE on Saturday morning but I'm not sure I've ever jumped out of bed so happily despite the time :)  We landed, grabbed our bags and headed straight for the hotel.  We were a bit early to check in so we checked our bags and hit the streets running.  The weather was PERFECTION and we grabbed lunch at the Plaza Hotel Food Hall which was awesome because there was something for everyone.  A crepe and a diet coke for me and we were ready to hit the park.

(side note - there are TWENTY EIGHT kids between all of us.  Twenty.  Eight). hahaha

Throwback Gift Guides

I've started working on a few gift guides for the year, but as I iron out the details on those I thought it would be worth re-sharing a few of the previous guides I've done as the items are still some of my kids FAVORITES.  Have you started shopping yet?  Finished??? Let me know in the comments!

Griffin's Wishlist from Last Year (4 years old)

Christmas Books

I shared several books from our Christmas stash last year in THIS POST and today I'm sharing a few new titles that I've picked up to add to our collection this year.  I love to put out seasonal books as it makes picking a bedtime book extra easy and I find that having "fresh" books out sparks their interests and I often catch them reading through them independently or to each other. 

First up on the list is Olive, The Other Reindeer

Three Things

Today I'm sharing three things about my three favorite people :)  I try to do this periodically as a place to jot down little things that I don't want to forget.

Halloween 2018

Well, Halloween has come and gone and I can't even believe it!  This year's family costume was SO MUCH FUN and I'm not sure I've ever laughed so hard in my entire life.
