We had another week of illness, with Conor down this time. But as of today everyone is healthy and ready for some weekend fun! The big event will be putting up most of our exterior illumination (except for garlands)! There is also a Winter Farmer's Market that we'll hit up in search of all sorts of goodies to kick off Thanksgiving week & the entire holiday season! Here's my typical bit of randomness on a Friday:
Christmas pajamas...for the adults! This year I am eyeing these adorable leggings (which would pair perfectly with this henley). And for Conor, I am loving this one piece... The elbow patches make it all the more amazing! However, Conor already owns a one piece, and I think one is probably enough!
We spend plenty of time at the library, and every so often we find some awesome books that are worth purchasing to have in our home forever. Really, I just like that library allows me to have a trial period... If I can't handle reading the same book for a few weeks straight, then I absolutely don't want it in our own personal collection. So all that to say, two new library books that I'm loving are
Twenty Big Trucks in the Middle of the Street as well as
Sneeze, Big Bear, Sneeze!.
I spotted these baskets at Target and almost pulled the trigger. They would be perfect for holding all those swaddle blankets or stuffed animals. Now I simply need to find a place in my house that needs them and they will be mine!
I have teacher Christmas gifts on the mind, especially since this is the first year I get to put one together! At first I was thinking that I would do a festive Starbucks to-go cup and stick a gift card inside, but then I thought...what if Liam's teacher is Mormon (which is very likely here in Utah)?! Then a Starbucks gift would be all wrong! So now I have to get all creative or something...
I'm getting so excited for Black Friday shopping!!! But for me, that involves sitting down to my computer and shopping all my favorite small business. I typically hit up Freshly Picked (I love my carryall) and June & January (eyeing that hoodie jumper). And my other go-to shop this time of year is Alpine Baby Co. (for leggings & tees). Keep in mind that some of these small shops start their sales early and sell out quick! I find that following them in Instagram helps to know when all sales begin.
