Five Days of Fabulous: Day 2 PLUS Home for the Holidays!

It’s DAY TWO of mine and Sheaffer’s Five Days of Fabulous!

If you missed it yesterday…we kicked off our week by giving away a pair of PJ Salvage Pajamas and a cozy fur throw to one lucky winner and two of her friends.  And this morning…the Rafflecopter selected a winner.  Drum roll please…


CONGRATULATIONS Caelin!  You and two friends will each be receiving a pair of pjs and a cozy fur this Christmas!  We emailed you this morning and now you have 48 hours to email us back and claim your prize!

Day one down and now, day two.


Today, thanks to the fabulous Nordstrom, Sheaffer and I are able to give away…

Five Days of Fabulous


(Insert my happy dance HERE!)

One lucky winner will get one of my favorite things ever…a blardigan.  (Sheaffer coined that phrase because it’s a cardigan that feels like a blanket.)  These are the coziest and softest thing you will wear…


Here I am wearing mine with my pj pants and a tank…because it’s so soft, you will not want to take it off!


And bonus…you can wear it out with jeans and booties or inside with your pjs.  It works both ways and is one of my favorite things in Nordstrom’s fall collection.


Here I am last year wearing it with my favorite leggings and Uggs too.  You can pick between this style of blardigan or this one if you win.

 It’s cozy, it’s soft, it’s warm, it’s cute…it’s what you get today if you win along with…


my new favorite Ugg slippers.  Now, these babies are flying off the shelf, so we’re giving away one of three styles…


If you win, you can pick either my style (available now in 3 colors), the tie style (in 10 colors) or the bow style (in 2 colors).

And don’t forget, these slippers would make great gifts with both blardigans or the PJs we showed you yesterday

img_0208…’tis the season for good gifts friends!  These pajamas come in 21 fun patterns!

If you missed some of my other favorite fall finds from Nordstrom on Wednesday’s post, you can see it HERE.  Like my favorite black dress which is now 40% off!


And my favorite fleece sweater


…it comes in eight great colors ;).

Whew, so besides a fun giveaway today, I’m sharing our pics from this weekend.  Every year, our little town hosts a Home For the Holidays event on our town square and you know we can’t miss a holiday event…so, Lovie and Papa Jay came along and we got into the spirit…


We showed up at 1:30 ready to have FUN!


Always ready for a good time 🙂 .


We stopped to get our cheeks painted…




The big kids went down the big slide several times…



And of course, we rode the carousel too…



Madeley met a friend 🙂 .


Our little square has a magic shop, so we stopped by for some fun tricks…


…and we took pics with the magic shop’s bunnies.


We rode the little train around the square too.


Love my parents so much!


Ashby and Papa Jay


We visited the petting zoo…



We stopped by this booth and the kids made ornaments…


…she was so excited about her ornament!


By 5:30, this one was passed out with her Papa Jay…


And then at 6:15, we waited for the town to light our Christmas tree…


…and just like that, Christmas comes to McKinney, TX.


It was a very merry and bright day!

That’s it for Day Two-sday!  See you tomorrow…and don’t forget, complete the Rafflecopter below for your chance to WIN!!!!  Make sure you tell your friends, family, neighbors and whoever else you might be tagging to enter to win too!

      Ok for some reason when I posted my original comment the text wasn’t working! What I said was that knowing how much you love the blardigan, I had to share this new clothing discovery! The lady even lives in Texas I think! That’s what the link is for 🙂

  • Stephanie L November 29, 2016 at 8:56 am

  • Shelly Nutt November 29, 2016 at 10:52 am

    I’m from Lubbock but happened to be in McKinney over the weekend…BURRRRR!! Saturday morning was COLD!! There’s nothing better than a Radiator from SPOONS to help warm up! The square was wonderful and so beautifully decorated. It’s funny, because I actually was on the look out for you and Schaeffer!! Maybe next year!!

  • Donna Tucker November 29, 2016 at 11:38 am

    You and Sheaffer are so cute…you remind me of my daughters! ???? They will love the blardigans and slippers!

      They’re J Crew toothpick 🙂

  • Erica @ Whimsical September November 29, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    McKinney actually sounds so much like Manhattan, KS! We’ve been stationed here with the Army for over two years, and we truly love it so, so much! We could honestly see staying forever! We have two small kids, and the amount of family events around here makes us really happy. I know your family used to spend a lot of time up here… it’s grown SO much (or so I’ve heard.) I would so love to meet you guys if you’re ever up for a game! I remember Sean and Catherine came last year.

  • Megan November 29, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    What a cozy giveaway! I would love to add the slippers to my daily blardigan and coffee time. Your town seems like such a fun place. I love how your family enjoys all of the town events. Like a big Stars Hollow!

  • Meredith Briggs November 29, 2016 at 3:27 pm

    Love it all!!!

  • shelly Janac November 29, 2016 at 3:56 pm

  • Cheryl November 29, 2016 at 5:27 pm

    Your family is so beautiful!!! I could use those uggs. Thank you for the chance to win them. God bless all of you.

  • Colleen Prois November 29, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    You guys are the cutest!

  • Nelly Jones November 29, 2016 at 7:47 pm

  • Ralinn November 29, 2016 at 8:12 pm

    I love following your posts of the area you live in. And….the sweet smiling faces of your children.
    I am on my second pair of Ugg slippers. I absolutely LOVE them. I have never even felt how soft the blardigan is. I would love to win this giveaway. My daughter is expecting her first baby Christmas Day. What a way to welcome my first grandchild. My son is proposing to his girlfriend soon. Two special young ladies that are beautiful inside and out. Blessings

  • Hannah November 29, 2016 at 9:06 pm

    I want to visit your cute little town so much, I’m a college student and am still SO jealous of all the fun things you do with your adorable family!

  • Olivia November 30, 2016 at 12:20 am

    I saw you on Friday at Home for the Holidays, but you were too far to say hi. My boys loved it and it was the perfect weather!

  • Liliana Hernandez November 30, 2016 at 1:51 am

    Hi Shay, where did you get your leather coat and glasses from?

    • Mix and Match Mama November 30, 2016 at 4:18 am

      They’re both from Nordstrom (the coat last year and the glasses are just Ray Bans).
