Getting in the spirit

It’s no secret that I love this time of year. So as soon as the costumes are put away I am in full on holiday mode. Mannheim in the car, pinning all sorts of delicious recipes (that I’m sure I’ll never get around to make) and Hallmark Channel movies on 24/7. Yes, I’m that crazy lady.

So with that in mind, here is a little glimpse into what was going on in my world this past weekend.

Starbucks red cup[picked up my first red cup of the season]

Jingle bells[sang Jingle Bells while Everett shook these]

Christmas wrapping paper[picked up (more) festive wrapping paper]

Everett Polar Express invitation[designed Everett’s first birthday party invites – can’t wait to share more about this soon!]

Old Navy plaid[went on a plaid binge at Old Navy]

If you are local to Des Moines and are interested in getting a head start on your holiday shopping, then look no further than these two open houses this week:

Accents & Interiors: I always hit this store up for their annual holiday open house and hardly ever walk away empty handed. This eclectic local specialty store has something for everyone on your list. Literally, everyone. 20% off almost everything store wide November 12-15. Get those lists ready.

Boxwoods Fine Furnishings: I was able to do a quick run through (squirmy kid in my arms) of this new store over the weekend and I can’t wait to return for their grand opening event this Saturday. I pretty much ended up drooling over every single beautifully curated piece. I have a feeling I will be pulling all sorts of inspiration (and items) from this new gem for decorating our new log home. Oh, and 10% off during the event – score!

To-Do lists: I love the feeling of putting a check mark in a box.
