Love List

With the holiday season just around the corner there are so many things that we are loving right now.  I decided to put together a list of some of the things that are currently knocking our socks or tiny booties off! 
So I present to you our Love List!

  1. All that Glitters.... I am so obsessed with the glitz and glam that comes along with the holidays and especially GOLD!  We are sporting our matching piggy's with my new favorite holiday polish Essie Go For The Gold!  
  2. Boots with the Fringe!  I love to put my little fashionista in big girl clothes. I mean, tiny mocs on those little feet..I can't even!  I have been eying these to go under the tree for mama, so Chad, if you are reading..HINT  ;)
  3. Festive headbands for the little lady.  Anyone who knows me knows I have a slight obsession with headbanding my child.  There are so many cute new holiday editions out right now.  I snagged this one and this one already to go with some of Olivia's holiday attire.
  4. Holiday Decor! Ok, so I make myself wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put up Christmas decorations, but that is not the only holiday we decorate for around here!  Fun fall and Thanksgiving decorations are sprinkled throughout the house and my favorite thing to decorate is the fireplace.  I found this felt garland on Etsy :)
  5. Starbucks Caramel Brulee Latte (in decaf, of course, can't be giving my tiny tot a heart attack)  I am not a coffee drinker, but this is hardly coffee.  I am a sucker for all things caramel and this has just the right blend of yumminess.  It is lovely to sip on as you cruise through Target with a babe strapped on your chest batting at your hot coffee like a wild monkey.
  6. Christmas Tree Cakes!!!  Oh yes people, they have hit the shelves of your grocery store already and whether you are a wait until December to celebrate Christmas or not you cannot deny the pure deliciousness that lies within these yummy cakes!
  7. Olivia has been battling her first cold.  Maybe it is just the change in the season, but my little pumpkin has been congested.  She has very sensitive skin (maybe the only thing I passed on to her, sorry hun) and I was scared to try the vapor rub directly on her skin.  I found this Vick's Plug-in Vaporizer and it did the trick.  She seems to be breathing better and her room smells delicious so it's a win-win!
  8. Days at the park!  The weather has been so fabulous lately that we try to get outside every chance we get!  Olivia absolutely loves to swing, no surprise there since she spent the first two months of her life in a swing at home, haha!  Seeing the excitement on her little face makes me even more excited for the holiday season.  I know, I know, she won't really understand the meaning of Christmas this year, but you better believe our house will be decked out with lights and sounds that she can appreciate :)
    All smiles with her bud Caleb!

This kid cracks me up.  It doesn't matter what is going on around her when it is naptime she just excuses herself from the party ;)

What has your family been loving lately??


  1. I am loving both pairs of Olivia's shoes!

    I finally put out my thanksgiving decorations Saturday... makes me feel so good! I just wish I didn't have to wait til after thanksgiving for the Christmas ones! And I will avoid telling my husband about the tree cakes because he will stock the pantry with nothing but!

    1. Thanks Brittany! I am a shoe-a-holic and there is nothing cuter than teeny tiny baby shoes!

      I am itching to get my Christmas gear out as well! Two more weeks, I am sure I can find something to do around here in the meantime, haha. And my pantry is stocked with not only Christmas tree cakes, but festive oreos and chips a hoy too! I was pregnant last Christmas, I have to remind myself that is not the case this year and I am just being a piggy ;)
