I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Our week was full of time with family and friends. We honestly have so many reasons to be grateful!
Tuesday night, I had a long-awaited girls night with Sarah and Ashley! It was laid back and just what we needed. Manicures, sushi, and time to catch up! No pictures because our looks were not our priority that night. 😉
On Wednesday night we hosted most of my extended family, plus some really great friends of ours. It was a full house, and really fun!
My parents, and my aunts and uncles. Hilarious! My dad was holding Davis’ bear, Scout, one uncle had a bowl on his head, and my other uncle was using Davis’ sippy cup.
And you can see it below, but Sarah finally got a picture of her Ezra Patrick with his “uncle” Patrick!
Some of the cousins. We missed you, Lauren, Pearson, Max, and Caroline!!
On Thursday we had Thanksgiving lunch at my parents’ house, and stayed to watch the Panthers win!
Family car selfie on the way to their house. Davis was saying “Casserole!” Ha!
On Friday we got a few things done around the house, and decorated our tree! Then that night our neighbors hosted a bonfire. We had a blast!
Saturday was spent at Todd’s parents’ house with his whole family. All of the guys helped with some projects at their house, and we ended the night with soup and s’mores around the fire.
Besides fighting a sinus infection, our week has been truly great. We rested, ate so much delicious food, and spent tons of time with family and friends who are like family!
Todd and I also got some Christmas shopping completed – online of course! We were just saying last night how things are so much easier now that we can shop online – especially with a little boy who doesn’t love to shop in stores. 😉
For your Cyber Monday gift shopping, I highly recommend using Ebates! I made almost $20 just from shopping a little this weekend. And every little bit counts, especially this time of year! Plus Ebates has double cash back on so many stores today. For instance, Gap has 8% cash back from Ebates + 40% off their entire store! I have made around $320 since I started. Check it out!
I’ve got to give credit to my mom for directing me to Gap and Gap Factory. They have EVERYTHING 40% off! Here is an adorable sweatshirt she found, plus some must-have pajamas for kids. If I had a daughter, I would absolutely buy that colorful deer set – so cute.
Asos has everything 30% off! Use code BLESSED. I shopped some there myself today. 😉 Those over the knee flat boots are amazing, and are a steal! The pom knit beanie is a must for cold weather, and that scarf is great and would go with almost any coat.
J.Crew and J.Crew Factory both have great sales going on! From 30-50% off! Here are a few finds that I think could be perfect gifts for ladies:
And some for the guys…you probably know how much your husbands, brothers, dads love those J Crew collared shirts! I know my family does. And my husband and brother-in-law both have that toiletry case and a bag that coordinates with it, and they use it all the time.
Just a few more things. SO MANY GOOD DEALS! Macy’s is having a great sale, and has tons of items marked down. I love these few things. That style of lace-up flats is everywhere! And how pretty are those bags?!
I could go on and on about the sales, but I will be done for now.
I am hoping to get all of my shopping done asap, so that I can focus on what really matters this season! It is the most wonderful time of year, after all!
