Last night I hosted my first Thanksgiving dinner and it's safe to say it was a success. I ate so much I didn't leave room for dessert, but there's always today. And the truth is I can't wait to eat some leftovers. Leftovers are the best, aren't they?  But first I wanted to do a little Black Friday shopping. So many great sales happening!  Shopbop's sale is still going on and it ends in 2 days. The more you spend, the more you save and there's new arrivals everyday!

THE BEST TIME TO BE A KID

11.06.2017

 Last Christmas Gavin was finally fully into Christmas and not just the presents. He got very excited about decorating our Christmas tree, so after teaming up with Gymboree's campaign #TheBestTimeToBeAKid I thought it was the perfect time to give Christmas an early start and take him to the tree farm to get his own little Christmas tree for this year. Growing up, my family always had an artificial tree so the idea of going out and cutting down our own tree was a little foreign to me but was a tradition for Kevin and his family growing up so naturally when Kevin stole me from the city and brought me out to the country of New Jersey he dragged me out to the tree farm. Now we have also adopted the tradition of going to cut down our own tree. 

We were the only ones at the tree farm (who else would get a tree the first week of November?!)  But the perks were that we had the whole place to ourselves and Gavin was able to dress up without having to bundle up. The weather was perfection. 

Gavin's favorite color is Red, so he chose to wear Gymboree's Red flannel button down shirt. We then added Gymboree's Navy Vest, Olive Green sweats, and this cute multi color pom-pom hat to tie the look together. Gavin had a blast running in and out of the trees and playing hide and seek. We also brought some fake snow for him to throw around and he had a ball. 

We all watched Kevin do the hard work and cut down the tree then Gavin tried to help him load it into the wagon. He was excited to get it home. After the long day we all took a rest and decided we would decorate the next morning. 
Gavin's Gymboree outfit: Red flannel shirt | Navy quilted vest | Pajamas | Santa slippers

The next morning I heard Gavin's little footsteps heading to the living room. I looked at the time and it was only 6:30am! He usually wakes up from 8 to 9am, so I know he couldn't wait to start decorating. With one eye open, I went to check on him and he was already digging into the decorations bin. He just loves everything about Christmas, even these pajamas and Santa slippers made him happy, and he does not like wearing slippers. Anyway, we put some Christmas songs, danced and decorated the tree together. If you only saw him, he sure was having a whole lot of fun. For him, Christmas is definitely one of the best times to be a kid.

Check out Gymboree's Holiday collection. It's super adorable!
