The last of my #GiftGuides and I am happy to report that I am just finishing up my shopping (and most of my gifts are wrapped!).  It feels good to be finished well in advance.  Heading out to meet my high school friends for annual Christmas gathering.

Today Miss S spent the day with her maternal grandparents while the mister was out at his  LAST MBA group meeting (omg is that even real to say???).  I mentioned these ideas a few days ago, but sometimes it’s nice to let helpful and loving grand parents take over :)

I spent the day tidying the house, wrapping christmas gifts, pinnin’ meal ideas/”cozy vibes”, doing laundry, watching another SATC marathon (thanks SLICE) putting up more holiday decor (& photographing it… in the most ahhh-mazing day light!!).

Also, I thought I’d put together a cute toddler holiday #giftguide (while watching Home Alone 2!) because I know I needed a little gift inspo for Miss S this year.  Definite staples for most toys we buy her are creative, pretend play and motor skill building options (of course this doesn’t mean we don’t buy her a talking elmo or a girly purse) but I thought I’d share the most neutral options in these areas.  Enjoy!

Holiday #GiftGuide For HER

This year I started my Christmas shopping a little earlier and hopefully I’ll finish before the first week to mid December (fingers crossed – including wrapping everything!).  As for our Christmas decor:  The hubz has promised he’ll put up some outdoor lights this year (after he finishes his classes this semester).  Our main tree is up along with some mantle decor, still have to put up the indoor lights, green garland on the banister, our small tree (same one we used at the condo) and this year I had Miss S decorate some foam balls to put on her mini tree in her room.  She is pretty happy to wake up and see her own christmas tree :)
