    I am seriously obsessed with your beautiful photographs! Lidi sounds like a great brand, except that it is probably not available in my country. But I still enjoyed browsing through your post and thanks for sharing 🙂

    The coat is nice, I really like it. There is a store here called Lidl but it is a supermarket with few clothing items.

This post is sponsored by Westfield Annapolis but all thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Can we all just take a second and admit getting to the mall can be hard!? Guys. I’m not kidding you all here. I am a mama. I’ve got two kids that like to jump off things and I want to eat chips right now instead of doing my hair.

But guess what I’ve discovered!? When the shopping trip to the mall can be an event? When it holds more than just stores? When there are kid friendly options? The mall is FUN again! And I’m serious. Fun. And guess who else said it was fun? Chase. My six year old boy who is like his dad. Brain turns off when he thinks he is shopping for girl stuff.

Westfield Annapolis blows it out of the park with their long list of kid friendly options. Let me just lay it out for you.

    Absolute Christmas fun you had at the Westfield Annapolis mall! Trust me, I’d also start at the Santa post! Haha….oh Zara, not an option to leave out, kust stacking and stacking more…according to my ‘card size’ though…

  2. Aditya December 18, 2017 at 6:25 am - Reply

    Well I guess Christmas is around. And one day, I will surely know the meaning of this festival. But in our country, only Christians enjoy. But I want to see what it is about. I love Christmas almost as any other Indian festivals. BTW, May I borrow your hat? It does look cool. 😛 😀

  3. Elena Toma December 18, 2017 at 9:56 am - Reply

    You look absolutely amazing and the little ones are so adorable. I have to say that I have the same white fluffy cardigan vest that you are wearing in some of these beautiful photos, so funny isn’t it ? It looks like you guys had a lot of fun at the mall, Zara is definitely a shop I always enter and spend like 30 min there and a lot of money, I just cant help myself !

  4. Sarmistha Goswami December 18, 2017 at 12:33 pm - Reply

    I personally love spending time in a mall but I do understand, with kids it can get stressful.But it’s amazing you had so much fun in this kid friendly mall.

    Hey that looks so much of fun day at the mall, the photos speak of the happiness and enthusiasm:). Great that kids had an amazing time as well, my son does get wary many times in the mall due to heavy crowds.

    We have Westfield’s in the UK but I had no idea that there was versions worldwide as well! I think you and your family are so darn photogenic and I was smiling at all the photos that you took in this blog post! I am so glad to hear that the mall helps those who has kids out with some exciting activities like Santa! x

    I didn’t bake any Christmas cookies or send any cards. I am sightly disappointed but I couldn’t find any that I liked and it just felt like too much effort. But it’s definitelysomething I missed and want to bring back!

    These photos are stunning!I love Hallmark cards. Getting personalized cards is always so fun! I love handwritten notes. 🙂

    Your pictures are amazing. Hallmark cards are the best.

    Hallmark cards have always been my go to card for any special event. That is so convenient that you can now get them at Walgreens. The pictures of you and your daughter are just adorable!

  5. Stephanie January 2, 2018 at 8:57 pm - Reply

    I’ve never been one to send Christmas cards out, but I love getting them! And I am totally with you, as the kids get old enough to participate in the family traditions it makes everything so much more magical!

  6. Jazmin Williams January 2, 2018 at 10:40 pm - Reply

    These are some gorgeous photos – I think you need them framed in the house! I was ill for a lot of the month so my Christmas cards were all over the place! But I do love to send them and I love to recieve them. Looks like Hallmark has had some gorgeous ones.

  7. Destany January 2, 2018 at 11:06 pm - Reply

    I felt like this year just went so fast – I didn’t bake any cookies, make any candy or do cards. I usually make all of those things!

  8. Deb Savage January 3, 2018 at 8:34 am - Reply

    These cards look amazing and those pictures are too cute. I really need to get back in the practice of sending handmade cards out.

  9. Caitlin January 3, 2018 at 10:00 am - Reply

    Gorgeous photographs to capture special moments! Hallmark wrapping paper is my absolute favorite, nice and thick and strong! Whenever I get a different brand I am mad at myself later.

    First off your pictures are stunning and so cute! I love how big of a selection Walgreens actually has for Hallmark cards. I love giving hallmark cards because of watching them smile when they open it.

    I love your tradition of picking out individual cards for people in your family. We used to to buy a box of cards every year to give out when I was young, and I remember how much everyone loved it!

When decking the halls with my tiny loves we do like to be a bit traditional and a bit fancy. Growing up, my mother always pulled out all the stops. Curls, lace, Sunday shoes, button up white shirts for the boys and always, always a sports coat. So I’ve partnered with Pok Kids to bring you the best in kids fashion!

I like to think I have a bit of my mother in me. I like to see my little ones slicked up and really putting their personality into their clothes. Chase still let’s me dress him up so I’m thankful for that. Meanwhile, I have to really be tricky in how I approach Lilah with options. Thankfully ALL the beautiful things we received from POK Kids Fashion outlet were right up her alley. Her dress twisted when she danced, her shoes were “strappy” and they were embellished enough for her sophisticated little pallet.

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!
