I’ve quickly rounded up some of the best deals going on right now – and there’s a TON of them. I simply don’t have the time in the day to round them all up. But if you run across something awesome, be sure to let me know. In the meantime, here is a pretty comprehensive list of all the retailers that I frequent. There’s some awesome deals happening right now, so be sure to check some people off of your list. Things are selling out FAST so grab them while you can.
Be sure to keep checking back as I will be updating this post through the weekend and into Cyber Monday.
I placed a big order at Target including this luggage set and several toys for Finn! They are also having killer deals for women’s sweaters and boots, along with a ton of baby gear. Make sure to check out their carseat deals if you are in the market.
I was scouring the internet last night after arriving at my parent’s house and was shocked at the number of sales that are already happening. I decided to do a little roundup for y’all just in case you want to get a jumpstart on your Black Friday shopping from the comfort of your home 🙂
ALSO! If you missed it, I’m running a giveaway through my Instagram and Facebook page. I’m giving away $50 to one lucky person. All you have to do is head over to those accounts and follow the steps. (Look for the photo below!) The winner will be announced tonight, Wednesday, November 22nd at 9pm! Good luck.
You know those days when you throw on an outfit and you just feel good about yourself? That’s exactly how I felt in this getup. There’s no way on Earth I’m cool enough to pull of leather leggings, but somehow these beauties make me feel like a million bucks. The best part is, they are currently on sale for under $20! In fact, you can grab my entire outfit for under $75!
I was born with hips and thighs. Those are just the facts. There was once a time where I wished them away, thinking I needed to be stick thin and wear a size zero. Years of playing soccer built muscle that would never allow my frame to fit in anything under a size four, and again, I wanted something different. Maybe it’s my age, or becoming a mom, or watching my body grow and snap back after pregnancy, but I’m starting to embrace what God gave me and soccer helped to form. A little bit of curve never hurt anyone 😉
That being said, these leggings don’t only make me look good, but they make me feel good, too. I’m wearing a size XS in this photos, and I could probably even go down another size if I wanted them to be more form-fitting. They run very big, which I’m okay with! And they are probably the softest pair of leggings I’ve ever touched. They feel like butter – legit.
On top of that, this sweater is so cozy and extremely warm. I’d size down in this baby also since the sleeves run a little long and tend to stretch with wear. My mules are a savvy find from Amazon, but I’ve linked a few that are very similar and have included some budget friendly options.
PS. ICYMI, here’s a great Thanksgiving dinner outfit option.
The sweetest boy in the world is officially 18 months old. I blinked, and all of a sudden, here we are. We are at that point where I can look back at photos from a year ago and think, wow! was he ever that little?! Finn has such a great personality. Very sweet, with just the right amount of his daddy’s stubbornness 😉 He is learning quickly and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t say geez, kid you’re a smart cookie!
We are now in the part of parenting where it’s less about changing diapers and more about regiment, discipline and keeping Finn engaged and busy. No longer can we set him on his playmat with a spinning mobile to keep him entertained for hours. Finn loves to read, so we do a lot of that. But we also like to make sure he is getting outside as well as playing with other kids. This is where I really pat myself on the back about putting him in daycare. It was tough in those early months, but now he thrives there and rarely wants to leave. He comes home learning new songs that we have to learn, which has been a fun adjustment.
I think as a parent I’m always second-guessing myself. There are days where I swear Finn understands what I’m saying when I’m disciplining him, but logic says he truly doesn’t understand reason quite yet. David and I try to stay consistent with everything, but it’s tough when sometimes, I just want to laugh because he is just too cute!
Finn is weighing in around 30 pounds. He is and always had been a pretty solid kid. He climbs on everything, loves to run, and is currently trying to master the idea of a spoon and a fork.
Finn’s vocabulary is becoming pretty robust. He knows mama, dada, ‘brudder’, bird, water, nana (for banana), and a new favorite, stop! among others. I’m sure others moms are laughing at my pure fascination at the simplest things, but watching him learn new things has been the best!
He’s also catching onto some sign language which is pretty cool. Another benefit of daycare! He knows all done and more.
Still, my great sleeper. Finn goes down at 7pm and wakes up like clockwork at 7am. He currently gets about a 2-3 hour nap starting at noon.
Finn will try anything once, but if he doesn’t like it, he will let you know. His current favorites are chicken nuggets (or really any chicken), green beans, applesauce, fruit yogurt, bananas, pears, carrots, and Goldfish. A healthy and very predictable diet for a toddler!
Things I Don’t Want to Forget
His little finger pointing at me when he says stop!
The way he slithers his tongue when showing us what a lizard does
The way he bends over and puckers his lips to give his brother (Juneau) kisses
The way he snuggles in at night by pushing his butt straight into the air and tucking his hands beneath his belly
The way he proudly shows off his belly and gives it a big pat when we ask where it is
Less than a week from Thanksgiving?! What. Is. Happening?! Time is traveling a million miles a minute and I can’t seem to slow it down. I wore this look to work this week, but thought it would be the perfect Thanksgiving dinner outfit, too. I love the color of these pants. In fact I’m really into all wine/burgandy things this season. Especially if they are velvet! But I digress.
This year our family is headed up to New York to celebrate with my parents and family. We get to briefly see my sister and her boyfriend, who are flying in for a wedding, which will be so awesome. I’m excited for the holidays this year since Finn is a little older and will actually get a sense of some of the things that are going on. He gets to eat Thanksgiving Dinner this year, which will be the best.
We usually get up to Rochester/Caledonia a few times a year, but we haven’t been up there since last Christmas! This year has been downright crazy so I’m glad we get to slow down and spend some time in my hometown. I’m sure we will be attempting to do some Black Friday shopping as well, however, we usually end up sleeping in and settling for brunch instead.
