Thanksgiving Essentials

Fab FriYAY Five is a weekly listing of my five favorite products, verses, quotes, crafts or ideas of the week – hope you will discover some new favorite items, too!

This week I am sharing some fun Thanksgiving finds that are sure to add to your festivities for years to come!

(1) Festive Décor – Who says that Christmas is the only holiday worth spending an entire weekend (or weeks) decorating for?!?  I think if we had some décor saved up for Thanksgiving, it would help us not breeze through it and start singing Christmas carols so quickly!

Ok, maybe that will never happen….but at least it could help us a little bit…maybe?!?

Here are a few thoughts for some gorgeous décor for your home…for…..wait for it…..THANKSGIVING!  You know, that too often forgotten in-betweenie holiday tucked in the middle of Halloween and Christmas 😉

Thanksgiving Décor Inspo comin’ at ya!  Ladies, I found this stunning photo on Pinterest and had to share because it incorporates a similarly gorgeous “Thankful” sign!  Hoping to somewhat recreate this look to warm up my home for Thanksgiving this year, too!

(2) Seasonal Wine Glasses and Appetizer Plates – I love any reason to add to my entertaining gear.  These festive wine glasses and appetizer plates are just the right amount of seasonal spunk for anyone!

They are subtle and elegant.  Plus, with gold taking over the world, they should mesh well with whatever colors you are using for chargers, dinnerware, etc.

Check these out for your next holiday cocktail soire!

(3) Beverage Dispenser Station – I have showcased these before, because I seriously could drink out of one of these every single day.

They are very handy and make your beverage pouring much more posh 😉

PLUS, you don’t have to schlep around your house all day offering to pour more drinks!  Let your guests take care of their fill up at their leisure and give yourself more time for mingling!

Photo: Bed, Bath & Beyond

(4) Turkey on the Table I gotta say, when I saw this I had to have it.  It reminds me of a new Elf on the Shelf-esque tradition, BUT finally one for Thanksgiving!

This little guy will surely become a tradition that your loved ones will look forward to year after year!

(5) Monogrammed Door Hanger – Dear southern friends, in case you haven’t noticed, monogrammed door hangers are ALL THE RAGE.  And if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon just yet, treat yourself (and your family) to an early stocking stuffer and step up your stoop game!

These are available everywhere, but I’ve linked them at Swoozie’s here.

Tailgate Essentials

Fab FriYAY Five is a weekly listing of my five favorite products, verses, quotes, crafts or ideas of the week – hope you will discover some new favorite items, too!

(1) Clear Gameday Tote Bag – If you have ventured out to any football games this year, you may have noticed that most stadiums are requiring see through handbags.  I think this is genius for several reasons, but mostly for safety!

Plus, who doesn’t love a reason to add to your handbag collection?  Kidding…kinda 😉

I looked around, and found 2 that are functional AND fashionable! GO SPORTS!

(2) Collapsible Tailgating Wagon This is a MUST to get all of your tailgatin’ gear to the actual tailgate location!  Plus, if you have kiddos, this makes transporting them much easier as well.

Note: I am biased towards crimson (#BamaBelleForLife 😉 ), but these come in just about any color you can imagine!

Photo: Amazon

(3) Gameday Market Tote I can’t stress to you enough how much you need one of these things in your life.  I have found unlimited uses for these things…not just for gamedays.

Just the other night, I was headed out to Bible study and realized I had more than two arms could carry…enter: my market tote!  My spinach ‘n artichoke dip arrived uninterrupted and my Bible and sanity did, too 😉

You can get one to match your fave team, or a neutral one for everyday use.  Go wild, friends!

Photos by Swoozies; Collage by me 😉

(4) Tailgate Table – If I’m being honest, one of the things that drives me CRAZY about tailgates is that there is all this delicious food, but no where to sit and eat it.  Those tailgate chairs are NOT ideal for eating…especially after you sink down into it and realize that you may never get back out of it….who’s with me on this?!?

So, when I saw this adorable fold-up table (that SEATS FOUR!!) I knew this was a tailgate must-have!  At least with this table you have a proper place to sit quickly, eat your food and move on to the real fun of tailgating 😉

Photo: Amazon

(5) All-In-One Grill and Cooler – Fair warning: this thing is VERY expensive.  SO, think super nice Christmas present, promotion gift, Father’s Day, etc.

But, I gotta say, for the occasional tailgater, there is nothing more handy than this thing…

AND, for kicks and giggles…check these out…. 😉

Marble Masterpiece Mini Pumpkins

#MommaMonday

Marble Masterpiece Mini Pumpkins

Fall is in full swing and the pumpkin patches are gettin’ picked over.

Turns out, there is a certain little pumpkin that often gets looked over…the little white ones!

Confession: those have always been my faves!  They are just so petite and fun!

Head back out to your pumpkin patch and / or Trader Joe’s, etc. and grab 5-10 for this craft.  Most places (including pumpkin patches) sell these little pumpkins for $ 1 or less, each so grab as many as you wish.

Side note: White pumpkins make gorgeous placeholders for your Fall / Thanksgiving dinner tables…just a heads up 😉

Back to the craft…

You will need:

5-10 small white pumpkins

4-5 different colored nail polish (preferably fast drying polish)

Large Plastic Bowl or Tupperware container

TIP: The container you use will most likely have paint stains on it afterwards that will not be easily cleaned.  Consider using a container that you do not mind turning into a crafting container later on 😉

Room Temperature Water

Directions:

(1) Pour room temperature water into the container.

(2) Quickly drip several drops of each nail polish into the water in rapid succession.  Use a toothpick to swish around in the water and mix the colors.

(3) Holding your pumpkin by the stem, carefully dip into the water and allow the nail polish colors to adhere to the pumpkin.

VOILA!  Marble Masterpiece!

This craft could not have been any easier and was perfect for a Sunday afternoon with my girls!

My girls are 3 and 5 and they loved every minute!

This will definitely become a new tradition in our house 🙂

So what do you think –  Will you try marbling with your family?

And do you have any fun October traditions with your kids? Please share in the comments!

#FabFriYAYFive

Fab FriYAY Five is a weekly listing of my five favorite products, verses, quotes, crafts or ideas of the week – hope you will discover some new favorite items, too!

Today, I am sharing my 5 fave photo products for organizing, editing and storing all of your photos!

(1) Google Photos App – If you struggle from “I-Take-Too-Many-Photos Disease,” “My iPhone’s Storage is Always Full Chronic Disorder” or my fave “Mamarazzi Meltdown,” then you need this app.  Like, yesterday

After sheepishly checking in to way too many (won’t tell you the actual number here) sessions at my local Verizon store to either up my storage, attempt to get a new phone or bribe the sales individual for a faster upgrade, I FINALLY learned that there are other ways to make sure you don’t fill up your phone’s photo capacity within 6 months of getting a new phone…

Who are we kidding…six weeks 🙁

So, without further ado, I give you Google Photos.  All you do is download this app to your phone, sync it to your gmail account and voila! Every time you take a photo, it automatically uploads it to your google account!  Can someone say amazing?!?

This app also double safeguards you from relying simply on the “cloud” to store everything.  It’s worth a try if you need to get rid of a couple hundred, strike that, thousands of photos to make room for thousands more… 😉

Photo: Google Images

(2) MPix – MPix is an incredible website for photo prints and enlargements!

The pricing is reasonable and the quality is unbeat!

(3) PicMonkey – this is a photo editing website that I LOVE!  In fact, I do all of my photo editing and graphic creation for the blog on this site.

You can add text to images, enlarge them, etc.

Plus, they have all kinds of graphics and additional features for creating really great products.

Check them out if you are into creating a digital scrapbook or just want to edit your photos!

One big downfall for PicMonkey is that they just started charging for their nicer options (which #RealTalk is almost all of their options!)

Photo: PicMonkey

(4) Canva – Much like PicMonkey, Canva is a photo editing website as well.

Canva offers a few things that PicMonkey does not.  But, I would say either website will deliver the results you are looking for.

HUGE PLUS: Canva is FREE!

Photo: Canva

(5) SanDisk Smart Phone Flash Drive – Hallelujah!  My dreams are finally reality.

I upload my pics like everybody else to a photo printing service, but I have always wondered why a flash drive didn’t exist for smart phones!

Well, thank YOU SANDISK!  Gotta stock up on these for the holidays and thinking about doing one (or a few) per year for easy photo organization!

7 Fun and Easy Fall Crafts / Outings for Families

#MommaMonday

7 Fun and Easy Fall Crafts / Outings for Families

There was a little fall crisp in the air yesterday morning and I did my Fall Happy Dance, Y’ALL!!!  The time has finally come for us to embrace all the pumpkins and all those snuggly fall feels…

I thought I would put together a post with some fun fall-themed activities (hopefully a few even new to you!) you can try with your family!  Here goes… Happy Fall, Ya’ll 🙂

(1) Pumpkin Hunt – As it turns out, children love to hunt things all the time…not just during Easter…. 😉

You can find tiny plastic pumpkins at Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Tree, etc. for practically nothing.  Encourage your kids to grab their Trick-or-Treat buckets and hunt for something much healthier than candy for a change!

(2) Thankful Board – LOVE this!  I found this exact Thankful board at Hobby Lobby, but you could VERY easily DIY this in under 20 minutes.

Teaching our children gratitude is something that can never begin too early.  The more we instill thankfulness in our babies, the more they will approach the world in kindness rather than expectation and entitlement later on.

Consider crafting or picking one of these up and each day, jot down what your family is thankful for.  It will transform your mindset in a hurry and over time cause us to remind ourselves of all the things we have to be grateful for.

“Thankful for” Board: HERE

(3) Pumpkin Patchin’ – This one is certainly not legendarily groundbreaking, but can be such a fun fall day for the fam!

Google pumpkin patches in your area because there is a good chance there is one (or several) close by that offer train or tractor rides, mazes, s’mores, face painting, games, inflatables, etc.

Make it a fall family day of fun tradition!

(4) Fall Themed Crafts – If you haven’t hit up your Hobby Lobby in a while, make a point to swing by there when you get a chance.

Each holiday season I always make it a point to stop in (obviously for all the incredible décor inspo), but also for the awesome children’s crafts!

All of these crafts are under $ 7 and they are 40 % off on top of that!  Can’t beat that!

Pilgrim Thanksgiving Table Craft: HERE

Turkey Craft: HERE

Acorn Craft: HERE

(5) Pumpkin Paintin’ Party – Again, not worthy of front page news, here.  But, nothing is cuter than watching your little Picassos create on the pumpkin they selected themselves! 

(6) Gratitude Tree –  Taking a nod from the Thankful Board I mentioned above, I discovered this gratitude tree in the Target Dollar Spot over the weekend!  I love the vision here.

The children can paint the wooden tree (at least 30 minutes of fun 😉 )  Then, over the next few weeks, encourage them to list something they are grateful for everyday and write it on a leaf.  Place the leaves on the tree and by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, they will have a beautiful tree full of thankful reminders!

(7) Cookie Decorating Party – You don’t have to wait ’til Christmas to decorate those cookies, friends.  Why not pick up some orange food coloring and go to town?!?  We have made this a family tradition and the whole family (even grandparents) join the fun!

What fun things do you do with your little ones during Fall?  Please share in the comments!

Today, I am sharing my 5 fave looks for one of the biggest trends of the season: VELVET!

(1) Ruffled Velvet Heels Have you ever seen a richer, more beautiful hue on a shoe?!?

Seriously though, these are a must for the Fall… you could dress these up or down!

Photo: Forever 21

(2) Embroidered Velvet Purse – My obsession for purses continues…

Embroidery has been trending since early spring, and it appears it will follow through into the fall.  Hooray!

This elegant handbag is a perfect way to embrace the trend without overwhelming your look!

Photo: Forever 21

(3) Violet Palazzo Jumpsuit Take all my money, people.  Velvet + Jumpsuit = Literally what I dream about at night…

Photo: Forever 21

(4) Velvet Bow Flat I mean…come on.  Bows make everything better!

Photo: Forever 21

(5) Floral Velvet Open Shoulder Top – You are nailing two trends with this beauty!  Open Shoulder + Velvet = Fall Perfection!

Fab FriYAY Five is a weekly listing of my five favorite products, verses, quotes, crafts or ideas of the week – hope you will discover some new favorite items, too!

(1) Black and White Buffalo Plaid Vest See, THIS is why I love me some Fall…

Have you seen a print more dreamy?  Well, wait…leopard is e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.

But, this buffalo plaid is right up there, too.  I will have an upcoming fashion post with this little number showing you that it is quite the versatile look for those cooler temps this Fall!  Stay tuned 😉

Photo: MudPie

(2) Ronzoni Garden Delight Veggie Pasta –  Not sure if / how many of you have issues getting veggies in your loved ones.  But, I’ll be the first to tell you that we are driving that struggle bus over at our house…

When my bestie, Misty, introduced me to these veggie noodles (veggie substitute, people!!!) I knew she had discovered the genius I had needed all along.

As most of you know, I share about getting little ones to eat quite a bit, so my excitement for these new veggie noodles is off the charts.

We are giving them a go this week, and will report back.  But, word on the street is that they are quite delish!  Bon appetit, friends!

Photo: Wal-Mart

(3) Pink Phone Dock For the person who has literally everything, this thing is right up your alley.  I’m not gonna lie to you guys, this is looking reallllllyyy attractive to me for a go-to stocking stuffer and / or last minute fun gift.

Since the only things we use these days are our smartphones, we have forgotten the convenience of balancing a receiver between our shoulder and ear while we take care of business…of course, many would say that speakerphone has replaced that  need.  So, I present to you a probably useless, but super fun trinket in case that is what you are in the market for these days…

P.S. I will be adding one of these to my office at the law firm.  Because Elle Woods taught me that girls who rock the pink, rock the world 😉 [Insert “Bend and Snap” here]

Photo: Swoozies

(4) Pirate’s Booty – Just do it.  Buy these.  Thank me later.  They will change your life…for the better.

If you like old school cheese puffs…then, shout out a “Hallelujah!”  because your fave childhood snack just became a whole lot healthier and a lot less messy.

You can get these everywhere really, but I would suggest buying in bulk at Sam’s Club or Costco!

Side note: It’s totally worth it just to hear your kid scream in a very public place, “MOMMY ALL I WANT IS SOME PIRATE’S BOOTY!!!”

(5) Climb Cart – Mommas, Businessmen / women, people of any kind REJOICE!  If any of you struggle with making it up the stairs with arms full of groceries, the Climb Cart is supposed to be the long awaited answer we’ve all been looking for.  This thing is as ugly as it can be, but due to it’s triple wheel design, it’s supposed to take the stairs easier than us!

I will definitely be adding this to my Christmas list, as these days it has become much more utilitarian than glamorous… #momlife.

P.S. I’m imagining 1000 uses for this thing….such as toys on bottom floor that need to be moved to top floor, etc.  Does getting excited about this make me sad…?

The Game of Getting to Know You

#ThoughtfulThursday

The Game of Getting to Know You

Relationships are what keeps the world goin’ round…am I right?!?

Those kindred bonds that we create with family members, friends, coworkers, etc. are what makes navigating through this journey of life a little easier.

But, often times we take for granted that we really know those we hold dear.

Do we…?!?  Do we really know those whom we call “besties,” “fam,” and “ride or dies?!?”

I would argue that even if we think we know everything, we can always use a refresher, a fun exercise or maybe even a life altering revelation with our loved ones.

The next time you have a few spare moments with your tribe, consider my thoughts here…

This past week one of my blogger friends posted a “Get to Know Me” article on her site.

I gotta say, it was super informative and I feel like we could be curled up sippin’ hot chocolate together any day now.

And, that is exactly what I want to create with my Tribe.  All of YOU.

I would love to get to know YOU better, too.

So, I am accepting this challenge, and I hope you will indulge me a bit.

In this post I have answered 15 random questions.

Now, you do the same!

Take this as a challenge to have a little fun this week getting to know those around you.

Use these on a date.  On a girls night out.  Or just a night in with your kids!

(2) I sang a solo as a part of my church choir in the West Wing of the White House once during high school and President Bush emerged from a nearby room for a brief .002 seconds during it.  Shell-shocked.  Literally.  He didn’t even know we were there, but whatevs.  I knew HE WAS THERE…

(3) I clerked for a state Supreme Court Justice.

Question # 3

Charleston, South Carolina.

But I would also want to live out my fashion girl dreams and live in NYC for a year or two.

Question # 15

What / Who Inspires You?

My daughters.  My two girls have given me dreams I never even knew I had.  My whole life has changed since my oldest took her first breath.  Each day they push me to achieve more than the day before.  They love me with no preconceived notions, purely and with reckless abandon.  They light up the second I enter a room and the same is true for whenever I hear the pitter patter of their little feet.  The words “Thank you, Mommy” or “I love you, Mommy” have proven singlehandedly more inspirational than any other aspect of my life.  More than anything, I now know what I desire my legacy for my girls to be: You can achieve anything you dream with God’s help.

My parents.  I know everyone says they have the best.  But, my goodness, I sure am grateful to God for mine.  He knew exactly the combo I needed to drive me, inspire me, challenge me and most of all love me fiercely, unconditionally and limitlessly.

My two grandmothers.  Most people say that I am an equal combination of my two grandmothers.  I wholeheartedly agree.  On the one hand, I will take a board room by storm and conquer whatever challenge lies before me, all while balancing gracefully on a pair of sky-high heels (Thank you, Ninnie).  While on the other hand, my heart lies in serving you up a warm chocolate chip poundcake and taking your mind off the worries of the world for an afternoon (Love you, Mamaw).

*    *    *

Whew!  This was fun.

I hope you got to know me a little better.  And I would LOVE to get to know you better.

If you have a few seconds, I’d love for you to answer a few of these questions in the comments!

Thank you so much for reading and hope you have a great day!

I challenge you to take a little time to get to know some people in your life even better this week 🙂

5 Must-Have Fall Accessories

Fab FriYAY Five is a weekly listing of my five favorite products, verses, quotes, crafts or ideas of the week – hope you will discover some new favorite items, too!

This week, I am sharing my 5 Must-Have Fall Accessories!

(1) Wool Hat – I love a good jewel-toned hat.  Well, anything jewel-toned, really…

But, these hats are perfect for those upcoming breezy nights.  Plus, they add that extra, unexpected layer of chic that feels so effortless!

Hat: Forever21; Similar HERE; and HERE

(2) Earrings Who is really surprised that I am suggesting monogrammed earrings…?!?

But these are just so awesome, I had to do it.

This stunning mother of pearl is making me wanna buy multiple pairs and the best part about these is they are perfect for ANY season! Score!

Photo: Swoozies

(3) Plaid Scarf LOVE e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. about this scarf.

I love the print.  I love that it is a perfect Burberry-esque shade of amazingness.

I love that it is comfy.  And versatile.  And warm.

Add this to your Fall wardrobe and you’ll be thanking me later.  Promise 😉

Photo: DSW

(4) Camel Sling bag Oops.  Another monogrammed selection…

I am a southern belle, friends… So, it comes with the territory 😉

But, the real reason I am suggesting this bag is the COLOR.  Have you ever seen a more beautiful shade of camel?!?

This will be your go-to accessory for Fall!

(5) Tassel Booties Ok, my friends.  I am low key in love with these booties.

This color.  This tassel.  This gold accent look.

If you are in the market for a go-to bootie for Fall, well, look no further!

#FabFriYAYFive Back to School Edition

Fab FriYAY Five is a weekly listing of my five favorite products, verses, quotes, crafts or ideas of the week – hope you will discover some new favorite items, too!

(1) Single Blender The kids are headed back to school, so I am interested in a little long-awaited (yet, very necessary) Mommy maintenance…who’s with me?!?

I’ve decided to do some nutritional shakes for breakfast to start the day on the right foot, but didn’t want to purchase a bulky mixer.

When I found these, it was a dream come true.  Simply mix your shake and when it’s done, pick up the to-go cup and go!  No pouring into a separate cup or anything!  This is about to make those super early school mornings worth looking forward to!

Photo: Bed Bath and Beyond

(2) Meal Planning Note Pad And all the Ladies / Mommas / Humans say Amen!

For all the list makers out there, this thing is what we’ve all been needing since day one.

Now, you can easily organize your meals for the week, stick it on the fridge and toss it out when you’re done!  I AM SOOO EXCITED!!

Photo: Amazon

(3) Debbie Meyer Green Produce Bags After tossing a whole bunch of produce…and feeling really bad about it, I finally decided to check into some produce bags.

I’ve heard great things about their ability to keep veggies crisp and fruits from browning and molding.  Will keep you ladies posted on how these things work out!

Photo: Bed Bath and Beyond

(4) Pure Spin Face Exfoliator So, I’ve been seeing these face brushes all over the place.  And every time I priced them, I had to pick my jaw up off the floor.

Not with this one!  This thing is under $ 30 and from what I hear, is just as effective as the expensive ones! SCORE!

Plus, I love that they kept the sleek and feminine design even with such a price difference.

Photo: Amazon

(5) Collapsible Meal Sets Love these!  Lunch time was never cuter AND these things collapse making them little storing wizards!

Check out this great one, too HERE
