Hello lovelies ♡ Recently, we created a poll on Twitter asking which post you would like to see next. 🤗 So here we are! Yes, I LOVE movies. I will say since the 3rd littlest lady was born, my love for movies has been a bit ignored unfortunately. The good news, she is now getting older and I can slowly resume to tending to my movie addicted “mommy time” little by little. ♡ Anyone else enjoy spending their alone time watching movies??

Since becoming a mom I have found it is hard for me to watch horror films. I used to love them when I was younger, but nowadays I prefer comedies and action. Also, I am huge super hero fanatic! I have tried my hardest to keep up with all the latest and new movies coming out, but as a toddler mom, there are quite a few I still haven’t seen. I’m sure some of the movies I have yet to see, will soon be added to the list once I see them 🙂 Which type of movies do you prefer??

Here are my top 20 favorite movies, not in any particular order :

  1. Wonder Woman
  2. Captain America Series
  3. All Batamn Movies
  4. The Hunger Games Series
  5. Twilight Series
  6. Django
  7. Bridesmaids
  8. Ted 1 & 2
  9. Hangover 1, 2, & 3
  10. Elf
  11. Mrs. Doubtfire
  12. Pirates of the Caribbean series
  13. Iron Man series
  14. X-Men series
  15. Wolverine series
  16. Jason Bourne series
  17. The Heat
  18. The Lion King
  19. Daddy’s Home
  20. Hocus Pocus

It is hard to just limit my favorites to 20, I feel like I am forgetting so many good ones that I love. For the record, I love all Christmas and Halloween related movies!

What movies are on your top 20 favorites list??

My Top 5 Monthly Favorites – November

♡ Sharing is caring ♡
Pin on PinterestShare on TumblrShare on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponShare on Reddit

Guess what time it is?! Yup! It’s half way through November (already), that means it’s time for the second post in our series of monthly favorites ♡ So here we go…..

STRING LIGHTS

This one I love all year round, but with the days getting shorter and it getting dark in the early evenings, I can enjoy them now even more! I just love how relaxing the low lighting is. Once I am finished tidying the house up in the evening, I am done with having the ceiling lights on and look forward to relaxing with my evening hot tea in the ambiance that the string lights provide ♡. There is just enough light for me to do my evening planning for the next school day, reading, or journaling. It’s just perfect!

I have string lights around the tops of our cabinets in the kitchen, wrapped around a bookshelf we use for our home school supplies and games, and draped across the windows in our living room.

FUZZY SOCKS

I have always been a sock girl – fuzzy socks, toe socks, fun patterns and fabrics, even grippy bottoms….you name it, I probably have it!! The days are getting shorter, and it is also getting super chilly. You can really feel that winter weather rolling in. I spend most of my days barefoot on our hardwood floors at home (I have never been a fan of shoes). The chilly windy weather on our mountain really keeps the hardwood floors cold to the touch. My collection of fuzzy socks is perfect for keeping my toes cozy. I just LOVE fuzzy socks!

Sometimes the fuzzies and the hardwood floors do not mix well when I am rushing round and round this house, haha!! I have even gotten bruises in the past to prove it LOL 🤣 This is where the gripped bottoms come in handy.

We can’t forget those stylish toe socks! I have worn these since I was a teenager ♡ I love how they allow me to wear my flip-flops while keeping my feet snuggly too! Have you ever tried toe socks out?

SPARKLES

Sparkles, glitter, twinkles……I just love it all year round! This time of year though, it goes hand in hand with all the festivity ♡ Everywhere you go, you start seeing decorations, a lot of which include all of these. So, in my opinion, it’s the perfect time to add a little extra “sparkle” on yourself as well! Whether it be around your eyes, collarbone, nail polish, or even hair bows 🤗 SPARKLES are FUN! I even have a glitter lamp!

HALLOWEEN BODY WASH

This stuff smells AMAZING. PERIOD. I have worn the Halloween Perfume for the past 15 years. I had no idea they began making matching body wash as well, until, recently, my best friend gifted me with some ♡. She loves the perfume as well, and had ordered herself some, not realizing that it came with body wash….she doesn’t use the gel body wash so she passed that baby on to me. SCORE!

NAIL POLISH

Since becoming pregnant 2 1/2 years ago with baby #3, once again, the attention I give myself diminished. Shortly after she was born, our home school adventures with the 2 older girls began. Guess what? My “pampering me” time was 100% extinguished!! So now, girl #3 is almost 2 years old, and our home school adventures have begun having a bit of routine (for now haha). I have began focusing more time on myself again, little by little. I have missed it!

Every year (for years), no matter what, I have painted my nails for Halloween. I took this years as an opportunity to add to my “me list”. Since the week of Halloween, I continued with painting my nails at least once (sometimes twice) a week 😊. I have really been enjoying giving myself some attention again…and painting my nails really helps slow everything down, temporarily, and relax!

Well that’s all for today. What are your November favorites? Tell me down below in the comments section….I’d love to hear all about them ♡.

Our Top 10 Christmas Traditions

♡ Sharing is caring ♡
Pin on PinterestShare on TumblrShare on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponShare on Reddit

Okay, October is behind us, and Halloween has passed…..you know what that means?!?! It’s totally acceptable to bring out the Christmas decorations, music, and blog posts! So here is my very first Christmas themed post 🎄Enjoy!

Since becoming a mommy, I have been all about traditions. Traditions for every holiday. Christmas is my Favorite holiday so I think, aside from birthdays, this holiday probably has the most family traditions than any other in our home. Here is a list of our top 10 traditions.

NEW ORNAMENT COLLECTION PICKS

Every year we all go out as a family for fun family events and finish the day in search for that new perfect ornament. We each pick out a special yearly ornament to add to the collection. Once we get home, we put our name on the bottom and the year, before adding it to the tree🎄I will tell you over the years, the amount of ornaments is severely outgrowing our tree haha! My hopes for this tradition will be that the girls with have their own set of memorable ornaments, along with their childhood homemade ornaments, when it is time for them to have their own trees as adults.

DECORATING THE TREE

November 1st we put on Christmas music and begin the tree assembly (I am allergic to the real evergreen trees so we use a fake tree) Over the 11 years of being a mommy, we have collected so many ornaments (both homemade, and yearly new additions). Everyone has accumulated their own collection of ornaments either homemade, or store bought, and they participate in decorating the tree with that collection. What is really cool about decorating this way is everyone, seriously, enjoys looking at each of their ornaments and remembering making it or what we did the day they picked it out at the store. Honestly I had never planned on the tree decorating to work out this way. As the girls got older they both would gravitate towards their own ornaments, and it eventually just blossomed into a yearly tradition for us that we all enjoy so much.

CHRISTMAS MOVIE COUNTDOWN

Every year beginning in November, we watch a different Christmas movie each week. We usually take a family vote to decide which to watch on movie nights, but as I am sure you other mama’s out there are aware of, a quiet family vote does not always go over well….So on the days that I can usually anticipate this happening, I choose to go about it a different route. Sometimes I may wrap the movie up with some movie munchies along with it, other times we may let our dog Molly pick one for us. Or if it is a super rainy/wet/icy/cold day good enough to lounge all day in jammies we may even just watch 2! There have been times that I have chosen to have a special hot chocolate bar for us all as well ☕

FESTIVE FAMILY DRINKS

This one is always fun! I have quite a few different holiday drinks I rotate around through out the season for my little ladies. Sometimes for breakfast we have a glass of chocolate milk with rainbow sprinkles around the rim. When we watch The Grinch movies we always have a glass of green (food colored) milk with green sprinkles around the rim. As I mentioned above, I surprise them with a hot chocolate bar at least once throughout the season. I always look for winter shaped marshmallows, fun festive sprinkles, whipped cream, and yummy candy canes for our drink stirrers.

MAILING CHRISTMAS CARDS

Using “snail mail” as a form of sending Christmas cards to friends and family is a fun family activity for us all. The girls love picking out the cards and signing their names.

CHRISTMAS LIGHT SCAVENGER HUNT

The closer it gets to Christmas, the more and more decorations are put out in the community. We (especially me) just love Christmas lights! So as the countdown comes down closer to Christmas we take a day here and a day there to drive around different neighborhoods to look at everyone’s creativity with lights! To make this even more fun, we have created our own scavenger hunt to find holiday items in all the decorations.

ELF ON THE SHELF

Who hasn’t heard of the all famous Elf On the Shelf?? Some are for this, and others I have heard, don’t believe in it. Well in our household, we have so much fun with it! So much fun, that another ELF (cocoa sugar spice) has recently joined our household to team up with the original ELF(cookie bubbles). As an adult, I have a blast coming up with mischevoius things for them to get into, and hiding spots for the girls to try to find them each morning. In the years past, the elves have been where the girls go to whisper to the elves their secret messages for santa, and really just more of a daily game of hide and seek (elves hide, girls seek). They always are anxious to see what the ELF is getting into next. The eldest girly has been able to join in on the “behind the scenes” fun this past year…as she had learned the truth behind what and who Santa Claus really is🎅

CHRISTMAS COOKIES

Wo doesn’t love a fresh batch of Christmas cookies!?!?! Aside from donuts, a fresh cookie is so comforting during the winter time. We always do our 2 staple cookies…sugar and chocolate chip. Every year we pick out 2 new recipes to try, or ones we haven’t made in awhile ♡ (Look for a list of our favorite Christmas cookies in the future).

THE NUTCRACKER BALLET

This is something I have done since my childhood. Every year one of our local dance academies puts on The Nutcracker. I am always sure to purchase tickets well in advance so I can be sure to get decent seats. My Granny has always loved The Nutcracker too, so we always are sure to include her in on our fun♡

WINTER WONDERLAND/SANTA

We have a local park that gets decorated with the theme of the 12 days of Christmas. It is always very cold when we go. It is fun getting all bundled up and sing the 12 days of Christmas song as we walk through all the lights. There’s Hot Chocolate, displays of local gingerbread house contests, musical lights, and Santa! This tradition is always a hit!

My Top 5 Monthly Favorites – OCTOBER

♡ Sharing is caring ♡
Pin on PinterestShare on TumblrShare on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponShare on Reddit

Hi guys!!! Happy almost Halloween !! Oh October….you are one of my most favorite months of all and I am going to miss you!!! Throughout the seasons of the year my current favorite things in each month seem to change. So I thought I would begin a monthly series and list off my current favorite things of that particular month ♡ So here we go….

HOT TEA

October it’s starts to get chilly around here. I am always a hot tea drinker (usually before bedtime), but now that the temp is starting to drop, so I find my self drinking more and more of it. It definitely warms me up and gives me that cozy fall feeling. Since my opportunity to drink hot tea increases, my choices of tea can expand!! I am always bouncing around in the different flavors, but right now my tea of choice is Oolong Tea. This tea is so amazing and has so many added benefits, one being that it raises your metabolism 😊 this one is my Favorite benefit! Another plus, it is tastey enough to drink either hot or cold 🙃 Wanna try some out? Check it out down below 👇

FACE MASKS

Something about the fall time just feels so perfect for facials. It seems that out of the entire year, fall time is when most of my facials take place…..This month I don’t have a particular brand I prefer. The girls and I have been bouncing around trying all different brands and purchasing the individual packs……what can I say, we like variety!! Do you have a particularly favorite face mask??

BLUE SKY NOTEBOOKS

Considering I just recently began my blogging journey within the last month, I have been looking at items to help keep me organized. I am a stationary freak and I came across these sweet notebooks randomly one day. I needed something to keep all my notes, blog scheduling tips, and ideas in. These little beauties right here are just my style! I love the simple classy patterns, and how the spirals are across the top and not down the side!! Plus, they are the perfect size, not too bulky ♡ I only have 2 different patterns, so far.

Arent these so stylish?! I love them! Check out these other patterns down below they have available!

ESSENTIAL OILS

I am absolutely obsessed with my diffusers. It is constantly getting used. This little pack of oils I purchased is so nice. I love how durable the box is, and how the front has an opened window-type part so you can see the bottles. Currently I do not have specific location for my oils, so they are always floating around between my diffusers. So having them in this convenient reusable package is awesome in my eyes!! Do you have a diffuser? If not, I highly recommend you grab one…or two….or one for each room even!! <—- Haha that’s my goal!!!  They truly do make a huge difference in the atmosphere in the room,help with focus, and over all well-being ♡♡ Look down below for some essential oils and diffusers of your own!

 

COFFEE STIRRERS

These are so cool!! Considering the Halloween Spirit 🎃 is all around during the month of October, these are so fitting! I have to admit, I did not find these myself. A friend of mine sent us home with a handful of them after roasting some s’mores at their house one night. Ever since then, my morning cup if Joe has been stirred with and eyeball on a stick!! 👀 If these are your style and you would like some Halloween Spirit with your morning mug, you can grab a pack of them down below 👇
