Happy Friday!

Well black Friday that is! :) Who is out there battling the black Friday crowds?! I didn't do too much shopping this year as I almost had to drop a bunch of money on a new computer. Luckily my dad was able to fix it and I was able to do some Christmas shopping. I got most of Chandler's Christmas for $60! Not bad right?!


I am so happy that the Christmas season has officially begun! Every year I wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start doing anything Christmas related. Tomorrow I am shooting a bunch of fun holiday content that I hope you all love and we are decorating at my parents house this weekend too. Christmas really is my favorite time of the year.

As you can tell from the photo above, Diesel loves it too! We always have him dressed in the most festive attire. :)

This week I found some great articles that I hope get you in the festive spirit!

Decorating:

I love love love every kind of Christmas decoration. I don't think there is one decoration that I don't like! Geneva from A Pair & A Spare shared a great step by step DIY for a gorgeous LED leaf garland. Check it out!

Budget:

This next blog post was really really cool! I am not app savvy in any way. I'm that person who downloads apps for a little bit, never uses them and then removes them for more Iphone space. I know I'm not the only one who's done that! 😂 This blog post featured four apps that are each unique in their own way. If you're looking to save money, this is a great read!

Fashion:

Since I can't experience a true fall/winter since I live in Florida, I rely on fellow bloggers and Pinterest to fill that void. Wendy from Wendy's Lookbook shared the most dreamy winter outfit! If you're looking for the perfect winter outfit, this is it. P.S. Someone buy me the skirt because it's expensive haha!
