Happy Christmas Eve!

This is my favorite time of the year! I love it all. Christmas music, cookies, shopping for loved ones, family Christmas pictures, designing Christmas cards.. yes, I love it all.

It's so lovely to share the joy and wonder of Christmas with Eden. She is still a little too young to really get what is going on.. but I love how she loves the tree, ornaments and decorations around the house. I put our fragile ornaments up high and the toddler-friendly ones down low for her to play with.

I only got her a couple small things for her stocking and Reed and I are making her one "DIY Project" gift. She gets so many things from her grandparents that I don't feel the need to get her much at all. The DIY Project is a flannel board with felt letters and shapes. I thought it would be extra special to make her something this year.. and if it works out, we may try to do it every year!

I hope you have a wonderful day with your loved ones! Merry Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families! It's one of my favorite days of the whole year. We celebrated with my family yesterday and this afternoon we're going to Reed's parents' house. Two Thanksgivings is a relationship perk, right? Love it. 

This will be Eden's 2nd Thanksgiving, but first Thanksgiving eating solid foods! She's going to love it. She's pictured above playing in the Vintage stock.. trying on the props. :)

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

Goodwill Finds

I recently went on a Goodwill Shopping Excursion with my fellow blogger, neighbor and friend, Abby. We both got some great items and loved checking out some different Goodwill stores. Another local blogger and friend, Dina was co-hosting the event and offering thrift tips, so that was great too! 

Here are some of my finds:

Abby actually found this scarf - it was only $2! I also got the pants for only $4. They are ankle length and slim fit. I love the black leather detail around the waist and pockets! This sweater I got from our most recent swap. It's Vintage and lavender, such a pretty combination. 

These pants were only $1.50! All yellow tags were $1.50, such a great deal. This top is another piece that I got from the most recent swap. I love the pattern of these pants and the loose fitting, comfy material. They're a little short, so I may turn them into shorts for the summer. 

I got this sweater for $2.00 for Eden. It appears to be for a little boy, but sometimes I like to put her in gender neutral clothes anyway. It's almost brand new! 

Abby found this skirt too! Isn't it great? I won't say how much I paid for it because I'm going to wear it a few times and then list it in the Vintage shop :)

Can't get enough of the Goodwill - their mission, friendly staff and great finds.. always a win!

Ankle Rain Boots

I've recently been on the hunt for some short rain boots for rainy/snowy days. Sometimes you want to wear rubber boots without the bulk of the tall ones. When it's not snowing or frigidly cold, I try to take walks with the baby almost every day. Ankle boots would be so nice to walk in on damp days. I think they'd just be easier to wear in general - gardening and yard work, errands, walks, etc.

These are a few that I've been eyeing recently..


1. Joules Rain Boot / Navy - Target

2. Rubber Flat Boots - Light in the Box

3. Red Lupia Ankle Boots - Aldo

4. Joules Rain Boot / Striped - Target

All of them are adorable and practical. Have a great start to your week!

FTB Styled: Polka Dot Top

I love a good polka dot blouse. This one is super light, comfortable and easy to wear. I paired it with a pair of boyfriend jeans and wool hat. I got this hat at Target a few years ago, but I see them at thrift stores all the time. 

This top is available in the Vintage Shop here for $12.75. It's priced to sell because of some wear under the armpits (the wear blends in with the design of the fabric). 

I hope you have a fabulous Sunday!

Little Ladybug

Last year was Eden's first Halloween.. but this was her first year Trick-or-Treating. It was so cute to see her all dressed up and playing with some of the neighborhood kids. We have such a great street with a lot of other kids. Eden has a thing for both both kids and other toddlers.. so it works out well. The headband didn't stay on the whole night but she was actually really good about the wings.

Reed and I have already enjoyed almost all of her candy. I love that part of Halloween :)

Hope you had a great one.. can't believe it's November now!
