The Gift Of Gifting

Thanks to the world of the internet and especially the world of blogging, there are soooo many more great ideas for gifting during the holiday season. Back in the day when none of this existed, we'd usually think "um... wallet? shirt? winter gear?" but look at all the ideas that are out there now. It's all broken down into categories like: "for the foodie", "for the young at heart", "for the friends who have everything"... and then there are all the giveaways that gets everyone even more excited this holiday season.

Around The Globe

One of S's wish-list items is a world globe, and as simple as that sounds, it's amazing how hard it is to find a nice one that I would actually want inside our house hahaha The best options I've found so far were at the World Market. They're basic enough and affordable enough, but part of me is determined to find something better.

Art Supplies

There is nothing S enjoys more than doing arts & crafts. He can do it all day. I love how creative he is (sometimes he has better ideas than I do!). And I love the process of him describing his ideas to me so I can help him make whatever it is he has in mind. For example, the day we went to get our Christmas tree, he decided to make him and his friend some ornaments. I just saw him running back and forth between the office and his bedroom. He had his desk lamp turned on and he was busy cutting and cutting paper.

With the cold weather comes the hunt for cute winter gear. And S is insisting he wants to see and play in snow this winter. When I saw these animal scarves by TreMelarance on my Etsy feed this morning, I jumped for joy.

Staying In Bed

This end of daylight savings business has us in a rut. Our little boy has been going to bed at the same time (new time), but has been waking up the same time (old time). That means what used to be a 7:30-8am start of the day has now become in the 6am range. That also means this mama doesn't like it and wants to do something about it. But no matter what I do, he still wakes up at the same time.

If you haven't noticed already, I'm a simple clean-look kinda gal. I'm all for colors and details, but if they can be simply stated then they speak volumes. These beautiful cakes designed by Peace of Cake Design demonstrate just that, simple designs that catch everyone's attentions! I love them so much this will be the way to go for every birthday from now on. 

Happy Friday!

Little Red Riding Hood Party

I know that when I post our little guy's birthday parties, it's more appealing for those of you who have boys. So today, I was thinking to myself "If I had a girl, what kind of a birthday party would I want to throw for her?". I've thought about this before, and I've thought about a twist on a Hello Kitty theme or something strawberry related, but my favorite idea is probably the little red riding hood theme. It's because of the colors and the setting.

Advent Calendars

I know it's a little early to think about advent calendars, but then you walk around shopping centers or even home improvement stores and all you see are christmas decorations everywhere, and then you start to get nervous because before you know it, you're running out of time to get your christmas shopping list done! This is the first year I'm thinking about advent calendars. S is close to being five now and fully appreciates and comprehends holidays, and he insists that christmas is his absolute favorite.

There's nothing possibly cooler than my little superhero this Halloween! The first two year's costumes melted our hearts, and then the third year was both cute and epic. So this year, I was knew it would be a little harder to live up to the previous years, but then we dialed it up on the coolness level.

Don't Play With Your Food!

... or do! My favorite kids toys and gear are the food-inspired ones! I mean, honestly, I wouldn't mind carrying that breakfast egg backpack around all day.
