It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I can’t believe it is already November and time for another amazing Mommy Monday post! If you are anything like me, the day after Halloween starts the Christmas season and all the decorations start to go up in anticipation of the best holiday of the year! I have already started decorating and I can not wait to share with you some of the changes I have made this year. I love switching things up a bit and this year I am throwing in some blush tones and pinks into the decor and I am so excited to see how it all comes together.
One of my absolute favorite things to do during the holidays is to write Christmas cards and thank you notes for all the wonderful gifts and treats we receive. I was SO excited when I received the most beautiful stationery from Giddy Paperie. The Ho, Ho, Flamingo Holiday Suite is literally the cutest and perfect for my Florida Christmas. I also love this design and this design and can’t wait to add this suite to my collection after the holiday season.
One of my favorite things to do is to spend time picking out the perfect gift for someone. I love finding that little something that the recipient will actually use and enjoy! That being said, I feel like every time I turn around I am buying another gift. I have started spending more time creating gifts for friends and I have found that they appreciate them so much more and they are so much more fun to give!
One of my absolute favorite gifts to give, especially for a newly engaged friend, is a marbled ring or jewelry dish. They literally take a couple minutes of your time and they are so fun to make! You can find small white dishes in so many stores and they look beautiful when they are dry. Check out my video above to see how you can make one of your own!
What is your favorite gift to give?
My little man is 2 years old now (oh my gosh, time flies!) and we are about to move him into a big boy bed. I am seriously so worried because he is such a great sleeper now and I don’t want to go and mess it all up with all that freedom! If any of you have any tips or tricks for keeping your toddler in bed, please let me know! Before changing up his room and getting rid of his crib, I really wanted to take some photos so I thought I would share them with ya’ll!
I knew immediately that I wanted to stick with a nautical/coastal theme with his room and I am really happy with how it turned out. There are still some details that I would like to change, but I think it has been perfect for him these last 2 years!
Most of the items in his room are RH Baby & Child or Homegoods, but his crib was actually given to us by one of my best friends. Her daughter, and my goddaughter, slept in this crib so it is so special!
Thanks so much and see you next time! xoxo
