Thanksgiving 2015 & Cyber Monday Picks

Hope you all had the most amazing Thanksgiving weekend with your loved ones!  I feel like I might say this with every holiday that comes & passes, but Thanksgiving really is one of my favorites of the year.  There's just so much excitement & anticipation in the air, I could relive it over, over, and over again!! :)

Sweet baby Avalon hadn't been feeling well all week, she was super congested & had the worst runny nose, we all felt so had for her.  Yet so very true to her, she mostly pushed right through it & was a trooper all day long.  We had a fun breakfast, turkey muffins and pumpkin pancakes cut into fall shapes, and took advantage of the most beautiful weather ever, with a walk around the neighborhood.  My brothers came over & helped entertain the girls while I got us all ready, we took some pictures, and then went to my grandparents for dinner.  

My Dress, Avalon's Dress, Waverly's Dress
Such a fun day with my little & extended family!  Life can get so chaotic sometimes, especially lately, days fly by and it's so easy to get caught up in everything else & forget to just slow down and be thankful.  I truly am.  For my health, my family, and for this wonderful life we are building together.

And lastly, happy CYBER MONDAY! :)  Are you all shopping online today?!  I thought I would share a couple of my favorite deals - (1), Asos is 30% off everything, love the prints on this dress & this one, and this suede swing dress would be so versatile to dress-up for some holiday parties!  (2), Anthropologie is 25% off everything, this mug is the perfect gift for anyone really, and I love these bowls as a gift for myself. :)  Lastly, both Old Navy & Gap are 40% off everything, no exclusions.  I always try to stock up on jams for the girls during sales like these since they are usually excluded, these are perfect for during the holidays or all year long!  Happy shopping!

  16. Poor Avalon - I hope whatever little bug she had is fully gone by now! We are battling a few colds that simply refuse to leave, thankfully Julia hasn't caught any of it - yet.
    Avalon's little cream sweater. Is it Gap? I think Julia may have the same one. :)
    And Cyber Monday - oh my gosh, I basically just let all my money fly out the window. Oops. ;)
