Inspiration: Thanksgiving Dishes + Decor

With Thanksgiving coming up in just a few days, I thought it'd be fun to post a few recipes and decor inspiration pics I've found on Pinterest over the last few weeks. I'm looking forward to a yummy feast at my sister's on Turkey Day and then our annual 'Friendsgiving' on Saturday. I'm in charge of dessert and bread and would love any recipe suggestions of things you've made that have been a hit!  A Gift Guide or two and some Black Friday deals and steals coming up later this week ... also hoping to post a giveaway so stay tuned for details! XOXO

Gift Guide: My Wish List

TGIF! This is my lust wish list this Christmas [emphasis on lust!]. I always love coffee table books and beauty products that I normally wouldn't buy for myself and this is something I'm giving as gifts [in Blondie] that I'd be happy to receive as well. I also think that these Coordinate Collections bracelets are a really neat idea to remember a special place ... they are customized so you pick the size, metal, coordinate location, and optional date + gemstone [I'd go for the gold legend bracelet with our wedding location, date and diamond accent]. Some Thanksgiving ideas I've found on Pinterest coming up Monday, have a great weekend! XOXO

Gift Guide: $100 + Under

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We've spent the last 7 days battling the stomach flu as it went from family member to family member ... no fun but I think we are all almost fully recovered! Today's Gift Guide features a great range of finds for $100 or under ... perfect stocking stuffers or gifts for a Secret Santa or friend! The Oribe trio is an awesome deal for the dry texturizing spray alone [my favorite styling product!] and these Nikes were a recent purchase. An outfit post and some more guides coming up this week to prepare for Black Friday [can't believe that Thanksgiving is already next week!]!

P.S. Happy birthday to my amazing hubby! XOXO

Gift Guide: Baby + Kid

Gifts for baby and kids are probably the most fun to shop for during the holiday season [metallic rain boots? yes please!]] so this Gift Guide is definitely a favorite. Hudson loves reading books right now so we might add this and this to this to his library and I'm eyeing this eames style table + chair set for him as well ...  Hopefully Santa is reading! XOXO

Gift Guide: Christmas Decor + Hostess Gifts

Today's picks would be great for your own Christmas decorations or to have on hand to give as gifts for holiday parties in the upcoming weeks! I absolutely love the fringed tree tapestry from Anthropologie [they also make a coordinating stocking] ... this wine bag filled with a nice bottle of wine [try Meiomi Pinto Noir] or this hot chocolate mix paired with homemade marshmallows [try this recipe from Martha Stewart] make for an excellent hostess gift.  XOXO

Decor: Hudson's Bedroom Update

Hudson officially switched over to a big boy bed so his room is going through a mini update now that some of his baby stuff is packed away [can't believe it!]. We still have this West Elm rug and this House Inhabit teepee in his room [along with the RH Baby + Child Toy Bin and The Animal Print shop photos pictured above] but added some new accents [simple, all white Pottery Barn Kids sheets and laundry hamper not pictured]. Looking forward to sharing some new room photos soon once it's all complete! XOXO
