I think I’m in shock that Christmas Eve is THIS FRIDAY. (insert panic attack here) Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are two…

7 Christmas Morning Breakfast Ideas

There are few things greater than Christmas morning, am I right? Between showering your loved ones with special surprises and spending the whole morning lounging in your PJs, it is definitely one of my favorite days of the year. We also love to enjoy a big breakfast mid-morning that will hold us over until our early Christmas dinner. We don’t have a specific breakfast that we make every Christmas. Instead,…

2021 Gift Guides: Stocking Stuffers

One of my most popular gift guides every year is for stocking stuffers. It cracks me up! Y’all love your stocking stuffers and I can’t argue with it — it’s so much fun to open up a stocking full of little treats that you might not think to buy for yourself. I personally love filling up stockings for Duncan (and now Four!), and I even bring stocking stuffers for everyone when…

12 Holiday Movies to Watch This Month

Is there anything cozier than cuddling up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa and your favorite blanket to watch a holiday movie in December? It is truly one of my favorite holiday traditions that we do every year. I feel like it’s a pretty highly debated topic what the best holiday movies are. It seems like everyone has their favorites.

Activities to Get You Into The Christmas Spirit

Tomorrow is the first day of December and do you know what that means?!? There are only 25 more days until Christmas! Before I met Duncan, I never really made a big deal about Christmas. November and December are my busiest work months of the year, so most days I was too tired and unmotivated to celebrate the Christmas season. That all changed when I met Duncan. It’s definitely his…
