Holiday Favorites

I'm just popping in for a quick hello and to share a few upcoming holiday favorites.  Each year I'm surprised at how quickly things seem to disappear off the shelves or sell out long before we're truly in the Christmas Season, so lesson learned.  Be on top of it!  If you see something you like, snag it!  
We're hosting Conor's family for Thanksgiving again this year, so I will be holding off on all decorating until after Turkey Day!  But... we did put the lights up on our house before any snow hits (they are staying turned off for now though).  And we may have busted out the Christmas jammies.  I'm holding onto their new sets for Thanksgiving night (our tradition), but last year's and all the hand me downs are in full rotation.  I used to be such a stickler for holding off, but I've realized that they bring so much joy to me and the boys, and the season is so short, so why not?!  I have also applied this thinking to Christmas music; Today's Christmas on Pandora is a top notch station (nd yes, I'm still on Pandora instead of Spotify because clearly I'm old.  I also still use PayPal instead of Venmo.  I don't like change.  Anyways, here are a few things that have caught my eye:

1 .  2  .  3  .  4  .  5  .  6

1.  I bought this sweater for Finn and am obsessed; he loves it too!  It also comes in red & navy blue. I wanted to get one for Liam as well, but unfortunately they don't go up to his size.

2.  We all the Construction Site books in this series.  This is the newest one, and I cannot wait to give it to the boys with their new Christmas jammies Thanksgiving night!

3.  I snagged these new jammies at Target.  I'm not necessarily a huge fan of the button up collar style, but I loved the holly print so so much!

4.  I am obsessed with these beanies!  I have one on my own Christmas list, and I still want to buy one for about everyone I know!  So many colors and styles to choose from!

5.  This is the most beautiful holiday red I have ever seen!  These hand towels are gorgeous, and I wanted one for all of our bathrooms.  Unfortunately they are only available in store now!  So if anyone can snag me 1-4 of these, that would be much appreciated!

6.  I love this sign so so much; I'm just unsure of exactly where I would put it.  But if I find a spot, it is definitely coming home with me!

Lastly, I wanted to remind you guys that if you are shopping small this season, you need to be making your purchases now.  Most shops have a cut off date for when they can guarantee Christmas delivery, and it is often that first week of December.  As small shops give out details about their black friday promotions, I will try to put a post together like in years past.  I love this time of year.  I love thinking of and giving to others.  I love supporting other families and small companies.  'Tis the season!
