O Christmas tree

My favorite day of the year.  The day after Thanksgiving when we go get our Christmas tree.  We do the same thing every year.  We go with my family in the morning and pick out our tree.  Eat delicious homemade donuts there.  And then that night we decorate my parents' tree, with the kids in matching pajamas and eat pizza.  The whole day makes me so happy.  Now with kids there are lots of chaotic moments and it's not nearly as relaxing as it used to be, but I love it even more, experiencing these traditions with our kids and family.  So here are a million pictures that I know I'll love even more as the years go by . . . . .

Whoa Walmart

top: sam's club   jeans: jcpenney   boots: justfab

In the last year or so I've starting loving Walmart more and more.  The grocery pick up is what really won me over, but recently I've found some sweet deals on really cute clothes.  If you don't follow @whoawaitwalmart on instagram you really should! These two girls post awesome deals, cute clothes, home decor, and all kinds of things they find at Walmart and Sam's Club.  They posted about this top and I sent a picture to my mom, who has a Sam's club card, and she found it.  For only $7 too!  It's so comfy and I love the stripes and the sleeves.  

Have you found any good deals at Walmart lately?  

(And I'm totally in a Target dressing room.  They can have all my money first.)

Give me all the sweaters

Along with everyone else this time of year, I love big comfy sweaters.  Like most years it feels like it jumped from summer to winter, and it's so cold outside.  Which for now I am loving it and helps make me even more excited and ready for the holidays.  I got this sweater last year and I still love it. Here are some other cute, cozy looking sweaters I love: 

one  //  two
 three  //  four
five  //  six

One more day and then I can't wait for four days together with my family!  Happy Thanksgiving week!

High 5 for Friday

 top: c/o shein   jeans: jcpenney  shoes: dsw

ONE.  I just got this top and it's only $14 and really cute.  I'm a big supporter of comfy clothes that can be worn with jeans or yoga pants and feel like an acceptable outfit!

TWO.  I'll say it over and over again that I couldn't be more thankful for cousins that live close by. Saturday we met my sister, her kids and mom for ice cream.  It's just so nice we can meet up for an hour last minute and that our kids love each other so much.  It makes my heart so happy.

THREE.  I can't get over how old Isaac looks lately.  Still this tiny little body, but this big boy haircut and face.  He's talking so much, definitely has plenty of opinions and couldn't be more snuggly or sweet. He will be two in just three months! I cannot believe it! 

FOUR.  This last week has been a really good week.  I guess after days with Chris gone, getting my tooth pulled and being up a few days before five with Isaac, it doesn't take much right? But really I am just thankful for a really good week! 

FIVE.  I've already put up most of our Christmas decorations and I couldn't feel better about it.  It makes me happy and I can't wait to get our tree next Friday.  Bring on the holiday cheer!

Pulling teeth, comfy sweaters and looking forward to a Monday

 sweater: c/o shein   jeans: old navy   boots: justfab

I normally don't look forward to Mondays, but Chris has been out of town for the last four days, and gets home late tonight.  So Monday will be a happy welcoming.  I never like when he's out of town, but this time started with a last minute need for a dentist appointment, where I spent TWO hours there and ended up getting my wisdom tooth pulled.  Have I not shared enough about how much I hate the dentist?

When I got home, this sweater was in the mail, which slightly improved my terrible mood.  It really is so huge, and comfy and I love it.  It's really long so would be completely appropriate with leggings, not the most flattering, but that is not on my agenda many days.  I got a medium, because normally things run small, but a small would've been fine.

Here's to a good start to our week, right??
