Happy Short Week!

I LOVE Thanksgiving and eating all the food, but even more I love that my husband has a short week at work and we get to travel and see family.

My mom and I had our little Thanksgiving this past weekend and I will be having left overs for days!  We only have about 5 of us for that one but we cook like there is 20 people coming!  I love spending that time with my mom in the kitchen and creating memories though.

Fin thinking she is drinking an "adult drink"

We will be heading up to South Bend this Wednesday for my husbands family and will get to eat much more!  It is so interesting the different traditions within each family.  Even when it comes to food...when I met my husband I had never had a stuffing that had sausage and apples in it, and he had only ever eaten stuffing with that!

Any who.....with all this food I am about to be eating I thought it would be a good idea to get some over sized sweaters for the store!  So coming in this week we have some longer tunics, over sized sweaters, and also some Holiday dresses!!

New arrivals coming this week!!

I hope you all have a great week and be safe!

Love this time of year!!

So I am seriously obsessed with this time of year!! I seriously think my hidden 5 year old comes out and get so excited when I see the first Christmas decorations go up, thinking about all the food and desserts that I will be consuming, and most importantly getting to see all the family!!

I know most people as they get older look at the Holidays as a stress, or time to spend way to much money, but I LOVE giving gifts and I LOVE watching my children get excited!!

This year is my first year with a school aged child, and I got an email from Finley's teacher saying she needed a room mother to "help" with the Thanksgiving party in her class. So being as naive as I am I thought it would be really fun to go and meet all her friends and see what she does in her class.  Boy was I some of you who know me know I am the least crafty person on this planet so you can imagine my surprise when I get an email from another mother in the class saying she was given my email address to see if I needed any help planning the crafts for the party!! Umm...say what??!!???

I seriously don't know how I get myself into these situations, but I jumped on Pinterest and searched all weekend on cute pre-school turkey crafts! I think I went overboard in getting goody bags, coloring  crafts, Indian headband crafts, and a turkey craft....but I didn't want to look stupid in front of all the other parents!!

Any who...the party is Friday so wish me luck, and hopefully my love for the season will show and it will be a success!!

Couple Days Late.... OOPS

Hey Everyone,

I hope you all had an awesome Halloween and your kids got you a ton of candy!!  I know mine did!!  Any who, we actually didn't get to go trick or treating until November 1st because we had really bad weather here in central Indy so the city postponed it for all the kids!  My girls had such a good time and even my little Pippa finally got the hang of it this year!

It is so fun to re-live your childhood through your children!  I really think it is more fun watching your kids to what you use to do than when I use to do them!

I hope you all had as much fun as I did and I am so excited for my favorite time of the year to be coming up!!

We also have many new arrivals up in the store so don't forget to hop over to the store and do some shopping!!!
