Hi there loves! I will be partnering with Westfield to bring to you a really fun shopping experience. If you are like me, it takes at least one big trip to the mall to begin to feel the anticipation of the Holidays! This trip put me directly into “go find all the deals” mode for my gifts.

Westfield Montgomery is located directly off the Beltway in Bethesda, its very easy to get to. My first trick for shopping at a mall is to park in the same place each time. (I’ve been lost too many times!) So when I go here, I always park right outside Nordstrom. From there I know where each store is and I can plan my day easily.

The store I want to touch on today!?? (are you ready……) Are!:

    Wow, I love your energy when shopping at the mall! I’m usually so exhausted from the kids that I walk around to the stores with the intention to buy, but end up too lazy to try on more than 4 outfits lol. In other news, love your look, tips, and overall vibe! Go Mama!

    I am not a big shopper (trying to be eco-friendly), but I do love that Nordstrom carries made in America stuff. So much better to shop locally- produced things!

First off, can I jump on that bandwagon and say, let’s get these holiday times rolling! Three weeks is not long enough for me to get all my candy eating, chocolate making, Christmas shopping, stock stuffin’ complete. So I know I just can’t wait till after Thanksgiving to do that. So here I am partnering up with Kroger to show you some on my tried and true favorites. And the best part of it all? You can literally get them all in one place. #thatsnojoke. Talk about stress relief.

First off, Noxema. Can we say… YES please to the skincare that won’t break the bank? And from 11/19 – 12/30 with the coupons at Kroger you can get: Noxzema – Save $1.00 when you buy any ONE (1) Noxzema product (excludes trial and travel sizes)

It’s time for all things cozy, covered in cinnamon, and fur everywhere. I love this time of year for so many reasons. Let’s just make a little list:

  1. Homemade Chocolates. We make them from scratch every year! It’s a tradition passed down from my Mother-in-law’s mom.
  2. Winter Clothes. Who doesn’t love beautiful layers made of faux fur and bold colors? Annnnnnnd little tiny grown-up clothes on my tiny babies? Just imagine… Velvet and gold, fur and ivory and tiny little hands all in one. Ohhhmygoodness.
  3. Decorating like it’s the North Pole in my house. 100% yes. 100% yes. I can’t wait to give you a house tour!

What in the world have we been doing!? Well I’ll tell you what babes. We have been working hard. We have also been enjoying the heck out of fall. I just needed to do a photo dump! I am 100% enamored by my children. Yes. 100%. That’s all. I think they are the cutest and I especially love the ages they are at right now. They both are just loving life and still loving mom and dad. So that’s a win! Lilah is doing a gymnastics combined with a preschool class twice a week. She loves it. Anne Marie is just the right teacher for her. Chase is obsessed with school. He is really working his hardest to end the day on blue for the behavior chart.

If all I could have were memories of tiny feet dancing and tip-toeing, it would be enough. Life moves faster when you have kids. You blink and they are crawling. Blink again if you dare, and they are running out of your arms. Try not to blink, for if you do, they will be heading out into the world. Remember, my little ones. Love with your whole heart, and be kind. Tomorrow you will change the world. Yesterday, you changed mine.
