Another day, another gift guide.  Really I just feel like shit and I don’t feel like typing a recipe.  Or taking a #ootd.  Or pretending that I’m all peppy and shit.  So, another gift guide it is.
Once again, ALL tried + true or on my actual wish list for the holidays.
There’s something for the ladies that like to cook.  Lovers of pretty things.  And cute stuff to wear.
Those jams + robe are calling my name right about now.

Today I’ve rounded up some of my tried + true favorite things.  Everything on this list would make for a great bff + hostess with the most + teacher gift.  I’m always on the hunt for the perfect little something for the chicks in my life.  You know, the ones that you want to put some extra thought into.  The ones that a Starbucks card or bottle of wine just wont cut it.  Don’t get me wrong, I like all those things!  Ha. 

There’s something for the lady who loves to entertain.

The friend that loves to cook.

Or the girl who just loves pretty things.

Oh yeah, and did I mention they are all under $25?  Yep.  Love my peeps, but I’m also on a budget.

{christmas jams}

Holly, Bailey’s Elf On the Dam Shelf arrives with Christmas Jams each year.  Normally December 1st.  If you read Friday 5 then you know that Old Navy screwed that all up for me this year…lol.  So Holly arrived on December 2nd.  Which, to my surprise, Bailey didn’t even notice.
I went for the less traditional Christmas Jams this year.  When I saw this metallic gold heart set I knew it was happening.  Super cute and Bay loves them.
She even mentioned that Holly has super cute taste and always picks out the best jams.  As if I have awful taste and pick out the worst…lol!  They were a hit!
In case you’re still in need of a festive pair of pj’s for Christmas morning…I’ve rounded up some cute options.  Target + Old Navy + Gap + J.Crew.  My go-to stores for the best kids stuff.

E A S T E R // Easter basket suffer edition
Can you believe that Easter is only 18 days away?  Me either.  This month is flying by and I realized that I still have my St. Patrick’s Day decor up.  Time to get my Easter goodies bought and shipped before it’s too late.  I try to come up with basket stuffer items each year that I will need to buy anyway.  Swimming goggles + beach towel + rubber flip flops, etc.  Then I search for the cutest options and snag them before they are gone.
Here’s a few of my favorite things for Easter 2016.

Let’s be honest, do kids even pick out their classroom Valentines anymore?  I know Bailey doesn’t….lol.  I search Pinterest for a couple cute options and see what I can find at Target.  She’s ALWAYS on board with whatever I find.  This year I totally lucked out.  I headed to Target to grab a couple dinner ingredients and whala – my eye caught these cute eraser rings.  I grabbed two bags and called it good.  Hit Pinterest the next day with key word Valentine eraser rings and this adorable free printable popped up.

It was meant to be.
