Happy Friday, friends!!!  Keeping things short and sweet today because I'm about to slip into a food coma ;) hahaha

We celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday at our house with my parents, brother, sister-in-law and whole lot of nephews.  It was an EXTRA CUTE day...

What's Up Wednesday

Today I'm linking up with  Shay and  Sheaffer to talk a little bit about what's been going on around here!
I don't typically eat breakfasts before school because it is SO EARLY but slower (later!) mornings this week have meant indulging in some of our very favorite breakfasts.  Scrambled eggs and  sausage squares while decorating the tree?  Yes, please.

Reading Recap

Y'all.  I've read some straight up STRANGE books lately but it's been fun and they may be right up your weird alley, too so here we go :)

First up is  The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. This book conjured up ALL THE EMOTIONS.  One day I couldn't put it down, the next I was bored - it was for sure a slow burn but in the end it all came together and I LOVED IT!

Amazon Lately

Happy Monday, friends!  Today I'm sharing a few things I've primed and lOVED lately.

First up are  these joggers.  I got pairs for both the boys and they both have been wearing them nonstop.  I like the slim fit and Under Armour pants are always such great quality.

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is a week away!  Today I'm sharing a few previous posts to give you some inspiration for crafting next week in case you're going to be entertaining kids at your house.

Baked Chicken Tacos

 We LOVE a baked taco and these are so simple and easy thanks to rotisserie chicken.  Amen ;)  I make a single batch and it's plenty for one meal (we serve with Mexican rice and/or salad) but I'll often shred enough chicken to make them fresh a second night that week.

First up is my new FAVORITE salad - thrilling, I know.  It's essentially the Greek salad from Salata minus the olives and banana peppers but with pasta added and it is SO GOOD!!!

Gift Guides: Girls


EEEEK!  Today is one of my FAVORITE posts of the year!  I LOVE shopping for girls gifts and sharing some of the things that Griffin is loving right now.  If you're shopping for a younger girl you can check out my girls gift guides from 202020192018 and 2017I've also shared a gift guide for toddlers  HERE and teen/tween girls  HERE.

I bought  this drawing book a couple of weeks ago and was SO IMPRESSED when it arrived!  I love that it shows different handwriting styles (block letters, etc.) for her to work on a well. 

Volleyball has been the hot topic at our house lately and I have my eye on  this rebounder (it has great reviews) and  this net is super similar to the one we have and love (which is unavailable now).  These nets are great because they're portable and are perfect for backyard practice.  This volleyball is the one that she uses and she may need an extra color for practice as well ;)

I LOVE gifting games (you can check out our favorite card games  HERE and board games  HERE) and  this math game is on it's way to our house right now! I love that it works on mental math skills and that it's geared toward that later-elementary/early-middle school age group.

Barbies aren't at the top of my list (ALL THE TINY PIECES!) but they're at the top of Griffin's and I totally had  this camper as a kid and so nostalgia won me over ;)

I feel like headbands are this years scrunchies and  this set has every color ever and the price point is great.

I'm not sure Griffin is quite at the tumbling level yet to require  an airtrack but on the other hand having one may help her be able to practice at home.  Either way - I think they're one of the coolest things EVER and a gift that would get a ton of use.

I've declared my love for OOLY art supplies repeatedly and  this set of duo markers is one of our faves.  I love that they come in a case that makes them easy to tote to church, games, etc.

Speaking of toting things to games and church how PRESH is  this little mini backpack?  A friend of mine bought her girls these to keep their Bibles in with pens and such as their church bags and I think that's the cutest idea ever.

Griffin got  this robe for pj day at school and it's on repeat over here.  The pattern is so cute!

I've heard lots of fun things about  Blingle Bands and I think Griffin is going to FLIP over this little set!

These earrings (and their packaging) is OH SO CUTE and after having her ears pierced for over a year G is finally ready to start changing out her earrings so I've been on the hunt for fun ones for her.  These are a little on the expensive side but if they don't get her ears infected I'm willing to pay $8000 for a pair :)  (kidding, but there is NOTHING worse than trying to deal with little girls with sore ears)

We love painting rocks and I love that  this kit comes with everything you need - even the rocks!

This is the bike that Griffin got for her birthday and it's somehow even cuter in person.  It's great quality and is a bike that she'll be able to ride for lots of years.

I'm not going to pretend that I understand the hype behind  pop-its... I just don't get it.  But they all love them and  this set of 4 is a great deal.

I buy puzzles for my kids but really they're just gifts for me since puzzles are my favorite :)  This one is really fun and we listened to some great music while we did it.

I showed  this baby on my instagram stories because I was SO IMPRESSED with it and I am seriously so excited to give it to G for Christmas.  She's been all about babies lately and she's going to LOVE this one. It's realistic, has some "heft" to it and is a soft body.

A caboodle is always a great gift idea - alone or filled with fun hair ties, scrunchies, lip gloss, etc.  I also think they make a great art caddy filled with markers, a note pad, stickers, etc.

I add  this microphone to every gift guide because it's SO MUCH FUN!  It acts like a bluetooth speaker as well and is something that Griffin uses and plays with all the time.

Griffin got  this ballet barre a few years ago and it's one of her favorite things.  It's easy to move around and adjust and will grow with her which I love.

Would it even be Christmas without Legos?  Griffin loves Lego friends and  this set is so much fun.

Last, but not least - books!  I LOVED Babysitters Club when I was growing up and am crazy about this boxed set of original cover books.  They come in a cute little tin as well which makes it even sweeter!

HAPPY Thursday and happy shopping, friends!!!

Thanksgiving Decor

Last weekend I got Halloween all packed away and pulled out the turkeys for the next couple of weeks.  My plan is to decorate for Christmas the weekend before Thanksgiving and while I'm super excited I'm also so happy to have the turkeys and pumpkins out right now.  Fall is my FAVORITE and I'm loving our house right now!
