Happy New Year!
2024!!!

It’s almost 2024 and I am feeling so incredibly grateful. I am well aware that 2023 brought ups and downs, and even brought a few challenges that weighed on us. However, I cannot feel anything other than gratefulness to know that I am still here and living such a wonderful life. Often times when people ask me how I am doing, I will say, “I can’t complain, but you know I am going to anyway!LOL!” Truthfully speaking, I know we do lots of complaining sometimes and that we often forget to see the best in what we have, but I am learning to become more aware of what I DO have and what I am able to call mine that truly matters. My children, my family, my home, my car, etc. I am so very appreciative to be where I am, and I hope that you are able to start this year with a grateful heart as well. Happy New Year! 2024, Here we come!!

ITS HOLIDAY TIME!!

Eeeeeek! I am so very excited for the upcoming holiday season! I, of course, love decorating the house for the kids, but I love the holiday shopping! I cannot wait to make a list for all of my family and friends and head straight for the stores! One of my favorite things to do at home with the kids is to make sugar cookies and decorate them together. They have always loved doing this and being able to share their sweet treats with their cousins. I have found it a little harder to find cute things for the kids to do as they have gotten older, but one tradition that we have is that we go to the movies and see The Polar Express in 3D at our local movie theater. They do this every year and we have made it our tradition to go each year and enjoy. What traditions does your family enjoy during the season? I would love to hear yours and see if would be something that we could start, too! 

Amazon has some amazing gift finds this year. I will be linking a list of some of my favorite things below!

Happy Holidays!

XOXO, Paige

The leaves have not yet turned, but fall is fast approaching. I am so very excited to see the beautiful colors and experience the crisp cool air. One of our favorite places to travel during autumn is the mountains of North Carolina. We go often and enjoy every minute of the holiday. Even the drive there is gratifying as you go up the mountains and experience incredible views. What I enjoy most about the upcoming season is the ability to wear leggings, boots, and pull out all of the cute comfy things that you have been having to push back in the corners of the closet during the summer. Below I have compiled a list of some of my favorite seasonal finds that I hope you will enjoy as well.


Happy Fall, Popular People!

XOXO, Paige

Can you believe it is already that time of year again!? I can’t!! It has been a wonderful summer full of fun with lots of memories made. We have been in the sun A LOT and have been either at the pool or at the beach most of the break.

I personally hate sending them back to school because I absolutely love having my kids home and being able to spend time with them throughout the week! However, no matter how you feel about your kiddos going back to school, they will certainly be in need of supplies. Click below for some of my favorite school supply finds from Amazon, surely to make your child’s year a successful one! Happy Back to School!!

With Independance Day right around the corner, I have had red, white, and blue on the brain for the last few weeks. I have already had the house decorated with stars, flags, and lots of other fun things (I am loving the fireworks painting I found at the Dollar Tree this year) and have been working on compiling a list of my favorite patriotic finds. From swim suits to home decor, you can find it all by clicking the link below.

Summer is finally here! I am so very excited. I know for some parents, they dread summer break and having their children home all day every day, but I absolutely love having them home! It brings joy to my heart to have extra time with them and to have the opportunity to make sweet memories together. Of course, I try to do this throughout the year, but we are limited in time with what we can do and how far we can go. We have lots planned for this summer and have already been at the swimming pool non-stop! I have already had my first “summer burn” too! I would love to hear what all you have planned with your kiddos over summer break. Drop me a line if you know of something we should look into. I am always looking for new places to go visit. I have started compiling a list of my favorite pool and beach items. Some items are from Amazon, but other items are from Target, Wal-Mart, and other shops. If you are interested in seeing what my favorite summer items are, click the link below. Happy Summer!!! XOXO, Paige

I really don’t know what I ever did right in my life to deserve the sweet little angel babies that I have. I often sit back and wonder what my life would be like if I had chosen not to have any children and I feel like I can safely say that I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am today. It’s so hard to believe that I have been a mother for as long as I have. They have truly been the greatest blessings in my life that has brought me so much joy that I would have never known or experienced otherwise. I am so thankful to have been given the privilege to be their mom.

Whether you’re a mother of one or many, this day is for you. You are loved, needed, and valued. Relax, take the day off, and pamper yourself because you deserve this day of recognition.

To tell you the truth, I have never really put much thought into my accessories when putting on an outfit. I generally wear my same “go-to” items that tend to kind of work with any outfit I throw together. However, as of late I have really been putting more effort into what goes with what and how things look with different colors, prints, fabrics, etc. Further, I initially had a hard time finding certain items that are my style yet affordable. Affordability is absolutely crucial to me simply because I don’t want to share something with all of you if most of you wouldn’t be able to enjoy it. In spirit of that, I have compiled a list of some of my new-found favorite accessories that I hope you all love as much as I do. From sunnies to earrings to hair clips… I am loving it all! So, if you have seen something and you think I would love it, please let me know! I would be thrilled to hear from you! Happy Sunday! XO, Paige

Easter is fast approaching and I am so excited about the upcoming day. I tend to get really excited about holidays, and love sharing that time with family & friends. My children especially love looking forward to Easter day and have fond memories of hunting for eggs and getting baskets from the Easter Bunny when they were younger. When I was a child, I remember my mom waking up early and staying up late to make us goodies and to ensure there were eggs ready to be decorated. She used to make these chocolate candies that I always called “Peanut Butter Eggs” but they were her homemade version of a peanut butter cup shaped like an Easter egg. They weren’t always cute, but they were most certainly always delicious. Naturally, I was always excited to get them in my Easter basket. Of course, I try to do little things like this for my children so that they can look back on the memories thirty years later which will bring them happiness and remind them of all of the wonderful things that we used to get to do together.

For the last week now, I have been checking out what each store has for Easter. I have been shopping for decor, supplies, and basket goodies. Some stores have a really good collection of items, and others barely have anything out at all. With that being said, I have compiled a little list of some of the best things that I have found during this past week. I hope you find something that you or your little may enjoy.

 

Happy Easter! XO, Paige
