Serena And Lily 25% Off EVERYTHING!

Hello friends and happy Friday! 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones!  We had a really laid back Thanksgiving here with just the four of us since we had already celebrated with family a couple of weeks ago.  I was able to relax most of the day yesterday and I was also able to get an early start on my online shopping for all the best Black Friday deals.  Make sure you check out my post here if you missed it, as I've added a few more really good sales! 

I wanted to pop in real quick today and share our new Pescadero Tiered Chandelier from Serena and Lily.  Todd actually just put it up last night and I am so obsessed with it that I had to show you guys a few pictures I snapped this morning. 

I wanted to mention this because right now Serena and Lily is having their biggest sale of the year, offering 25% off every single thing online!  Make sure you use the code THANKFUL at checkout to save! 

And don't let these cute faces below fool you...they only sat like this for about ten seconds and they were off making messes :) 

Also, the Birchwood Pillow Cover (which is already marked down) and Priano Crib Sheet that we have in baby girl's new nursery are both from Serena and Lily, and part of the sale!  Their crib sheets are THE BEST, and they wash and dry so well. 

This is seriously one of those sales that you do not want to miss out on, and there are so many amazing new pieces!  I mean, 8, 9, and 10 would all three make great Christmas gifts. 

One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six // Seven
Eight // Nine // Ten // Eleven // Twelve // Thirteen

Happy shopping!!  I hope you all knock out some of your holiday shopping and snag some great deals today!

Best of Cyber Monday & Black Friday Sales

It seems like every single year Black Friday starts earlier and earlier, but I'm not complaining at all! We are having a laid back Thanksgiving at home so I'm excited to be able to start shopping some of the best sales right now. 

*Also, this post will be updated several times from now until Monday, December 2nd so make sure you check back often as I'll be adding more Black Friday sales as they start! 

 20% off all orders $150+ and 15% off of all orders no matter what amount you spend. 
Minted has started their Black Friday Sale so now is the perfect time to go ahead and order your Christmas cards!  I have been ordering our cards from Minted for the last five years, and I stand by the fact that they have the most beautiful and best quality cards around! 

Fleece sherpa runs tts, and for sizing reference I am wearing it in the size small.

Pullover runs tts, and for reference I am wearing it in the size small. 

Sweater runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 

This is the coziest fleece you will ever put on, and you can not beat the black Friday sale price!! This fleece would make awesome gift, and if you wanted to add something extra with it, these wool socks  and this body butter would be awesome! (Both the socks and body butter are part of the black Friday deals as well) 

Last year I officially switched over from my Lululemon leggings, to Core 10 leggings. I am telling you guys these are not only half the price (even when they aren't part of the Black Friday Sale) but they are better quality and for me a better fit.  And right now you can build your own Core 10 leggings for $28!!!! For those wondering I either choose the high-waist, short length, size small or I go with the cross waist, short length, and size small. 

You guys may have seen me in this coat the other day on my stories, and let me just tell you it's the warmest puffer coat ever! Todd has the mens version in the navy (it's also on major sale) and loves it so much!! 

This is the tv that Todd and I have in our bedroom, and I can honestly say, it's the best tv that we have in our house.  The picture quality is the best, it's the easiest to work with as far as the apps we use, and it has never had one problem!  And the sale prices on these tv's cannot be beat right now!  This is probably the only time you'll be able to snag a 55 inch smart tv for under $400! 

You guys know how much I love my Breville Vertuo machine, well it's on MAJOR sale right now! Normally, this machine is $249, but right now it's marked down to $124!  This would make an awesome Christmas gift for someone special on your list (or maybe for yourself:).

If you have pets or kids this will be the best investment you will make this year...ha!  I know I talk about this vacuum all the time, but it really is that good and right now it's over $100 off for Black Friday! 

This is Serena and Lily's biggest sale they have all year long.  You can save 25% off everything with the code THANKFUL.  Now is the perfect time to stock up on sheets, towels, and maybe even new bedding.  I love their crib sheets and these hooded towels would also make a great gift. 

 40% off your entire purchase...use the code BESTWEEK at checkout! 

There are so many gorgeous things that I want right now at Loft, but I've narrowed it down to my top 5 must-haves below.

H&M Try-On Haul + Baby, Kids, and Home Haul

Okay y'all, I'm not sure what rock I was hiding under or why it took me so long to finally jump on the H&M train, but either way, I placed my first big order and I can promise you it won't be my last!! 

Before I start, this post is in no way shape or form sponsored, you guys had shared an interest in an H&M try-on haul and I had been dying to try a few of their pieces that I'd seen online and loved. Once I saw they had an awesome home section along with how precious their baby and kid stuff was I knew it was way past time for me place an order! 

The prices at H&M are SO good and I'm just so excited that I now have another place to shop for cute affordable fashion for myself and the kiddos! 

** I'll be sharing the details on how everything feels, fits, and the quality today on my stories.  I'll also plan on saving them on my highlights just in case you miss them today. 

This sweater is on the thinner side, but it's not itchy or see through at all so it's perfect for those days it's not too cold or for layering.  Sweater runs a little big, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 

This top is SO so soft I want to sleep in it!  It also runs big and I'm wearing it in the xs. 

Once you put this coat on I swear you will not want to take it off.  I am loving the length and the oversized plush pockets, plus, it's the perfect coat for dressing up or down.  It runs a little big, and for reference, I'm wearing it in the xs. 

This dress is so pretty on, not to mention, it's lined and would be stunning for any upcoming holiday parties.  Dress runs tts, and for sizing reference, I'm wearing a size 2. 

This coat is absolutely stunning on, plus, it looks and feels SO much more expensive than it actually is.  For sizing reference, it runs tts and I'm wearing it in a size 2. 

These leggings are pretty much a crossover between leggings and tights, but they give great support and they're perfect for layering.  Also, they run tts and I'm wearing a small. 

I could not believe the quality of this dress, especially with the $24 price tag!  It's perfect for the holidays, and it also comes in red and a fun snakeskin pattern.  For sizing reference, it runs big and I'm wearing a size 2. 

This candle not only looks pretty, but it also smells amazing!  And for $17, these would make such a great gift for teachers, for the hostess, or to add in with these cute pajamas and these slippers

Okay, for $4.99 this 16ft wrapping paper is some of the prettiest and thickest paper I've ever seen. And I just adore these simple gold gift tags. 

I can't even handle the cuteness of this set and I'm dying to see our sweet baby girl in it. 

These tights are great quality and super thick, and I was so happy to find a set in these colors for the holidays!

I almost decided not to include these in my haul, but I know that I have the hardest time finding Taylor panties that fit and that she finds comfortable.  These fit both of those bills, so just in case any of you have the same problem with undies I wanted to share these. 

This dress wasn't as soft as I'd hoped.  It was more of a thick jersey knit than a plush sweatshirt material, but I tried it on Taylor and it looked really cute, plus, she said it was comfortable so I decided to keep it. 

Taylor has been wearing these cozy boots non-stop since they arrived, and I must say, they look adorable with all her leggings and dresses.  Plus, they seem to be holding up really well with all of Taylor's rough playing.

This and That

Good afternoon friends and happy Monday!! 

It's been a while since I've done a 'This and That' post so I thought I would fill you in on what we've been up to along with mentioning some other random things that are on my mind! 

// We put up our little flocked tree in the kids playroom this weekend and I just love it!  We went with the 6ft because I didn't want it taking up too much room, but it also comes in a 7.5 foot as well.  All of the ornaments on this tree are all the Hallmark ornaments that Todd and I have exchanged with each other over the last 14 years along with some other sweet, handmade ornaments that Carson and Taylor made so this makes me love this tree even more. 

// I feel like my belly has almost doubled in size over the last couple of weeks!  I am sure it really hasn't, but man, it certainly feels like it has.  So with that said, I am finding myself going for all things comfy and cozy in my closet.  And for any of my pregnant mamas, I can't recommend these $14 fleece lined leggings enough!  And this terry cotton v-neck sweatshirt that I now own in three colors has been worn more than I care to admit...ha!  

// I am SO proud of this little lady and how hard she works in her gymnastics class.  She is so strong and coordinated, and I really hope gymnastics is something she ends up sticking with because I think this is a sport she will excel in.  I had a lot of you asking about Taylor's leotard on Instragram.  You can find it here, along with all my other favorite Amazon clothing finds for her.  You can find her faux fur bow boots you can here

Todd and I went on a much needed date night this past Saturday evening.  I say much needed because we hadn't had one in almost three weeks, so needless to say, we were both ready to get out of the house and enjoy a nice quiet dinner!  And I'm sorry this is the only picture I took, but the lighting was really dark and I was way too busy stuffing my face...ha!  We ended up going downtown to Melfi's because I was really craving Italian and had heard great things about this place.  While Todd and I both truly enjoyed everything we ordered, nothing was knock your socks off delicious and for the amount of food and the size of their wine pour it's a little pricey. 

What I Wore

Seriously can't get enough of this soft chenille stripe sweater

// The pups both got much a much needed bath on Saturday and it was so nice having them smell good so we could snuggle them on the couches.  A few of you asked what shampoo we used and we use this soothing dog smells SO good!!!  

 / / These suede statment earrings are a holiday MUST HAVE!!  They are super super lightweight and look gorgeous on! 

And last, Taylor's closet is currently being installed.  For any of you guys that are local, the woodworker that has done all of our built-ins and closets is named Chewy and his number is (843)640-1037.  He is truly amazing and I can't say enough wonderful things about all the custom work he's done in our home. 

And I know I'm going to get a bunch of questions about the rods and hardware I'm using so I thought I would make it easy and just link it all up right here.
