Whew! What a week…and a winner!

Oh heavens.  This is how I feel right now…


…or this…


Last week, Sheaffer and I had our fourth annual Five Days of Fabulous and you know what?  It was FABULOUS!

Today, we’re announcing the winner of the fifth and final day

Five Days of Fabulous

One lucky winner today will receive a $1000 Nordstrom Gift Card for themselves and another one for a friend! Are you ready?  Are you nervous?  I AM!  Okay, the winner of our Day Five giveaway is…


EEEEEEEEKS!  Congratulations Whitney!  You have won!!!  I emailed you this morning.  You have 48 hours to claim your prize, so hurry and email me back!

I mean…I bet Oprah had to take a BIG nap after her giveaway shows because it’s exhausting having this much fun 😉 .

Let’s recap our week.  Thanks to Nordstrom sponsoring posts like this, we were able to giveaway some of our favorite winter items this year…


Like my favorite flannel pajamas.  I bought one of the Christmas patterns, but they come in so many other patterns too


Cozy pajamas for the win this holiday season.  And then there was this…


blardigans and Ugg slippers.  Seriously, nothing is softer than this (and my pj pants are HERE)!  We followed that day with a HUGE Wednesday…


Hunter Boots!!!  Oh how I love these boots!  These make excellent gifts for every lady in your life!  And my scarf does too 🙂 .


On Thursday, we gave one winner and a friend each $500 Nordstrom gift cards and I shared some of my favorite dresses (like this one…which comes in several colors!).


…and my very favorite dress that’s only $35!


On Friday, I wrapped up our week with my favorite items from Nordstrom Kids (like this Christmas tree dress!)…


…and this new cardigan with my flat booties.

And here are a few more of my favorite items from Nordstrom this winter…

That was one HUGE week!  Congratulations to Whitney who won the fifth and final prize!

If you’re looking for one more thing to gift this year…


…might I suggest my newest cookbook, Eats?  It has 12 chapters (one for each month), so your friends and family could cook their way through the year with my seasonal and simple recipes.  You can order a copy HERE. (This photograph is inside the book in the December chapter 🙂 . )

  Okay, I’m off to take a nap work and care for my four young children.  Happy Monday!  Tomorrow, I’m sharing some pics of our house decorated for Christmas!

    My name is also Whitney and I almost died when I first read “Whitney”, unfortunately the last name didn’t match 😉 haha good way to get my heart rate up in the morning!!

    I love your style and buy many of your suggestions. I like that you actually wear what your showing and not just in a store dressing room trying on clothes you don’t intend to buy.

  • Sarah December 5, 2016 at 7:48 am

    You’re cookbook is on my Christmas List! Can’t wait to open it up on Christmas Morning! Last week was so fun with the giveaways, really enjoyed seeing what the new giveaway was going to be each day!

  • Brenda Krug December 5, 2016 at 8:06 am

    I really enjoy your blog, you’re so inspirational and real. May God bless you and your family during this Christmas season. I love all your giveaways too! 🙂

    Shay, can you tell me the difference between your Eats book and you Meal Plan book? I’m trying to compare them on Amazon and I’m stuck…I want to give one as a gift to someone, but I’m not sure what the best option is of the two…She is a busy mom with three kids and runs her own at home business…not sure how much she cooks!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 5, 2016 at 12:52 pm

      The Eats book is larger with more recipes. I would probably give a busy mama that one. Merry Christmas!

  • Karah Stracener December 5, 2016 at 8:35 am

    What a fun giveaway week. I put your cookbook on my Christmas wish list. I can’t wait to cook through it.

  • Francie @ supersimpleways.com December 5, 2016 at 8:43 am

    Your cookbook is the perfect gift idea! I have a few friends that would love your Eats book this Christmas! http://www.supersimpleways.com

    How fun!! Love those flannel pajamas!!!

  • Debbie K. December 5, 2016 at 9:34 am

    Just ordered myself some Christmas happiness with your new cookbook. Can’t wait to start the year off with some of your recipes.

  • Angela Ellingson December 5, 2016 at 9:55 am

  • Bethany Crisp December 5, 2016 at 10:36 am

    Such a fun week! Hope you get to rest!

  • Whitney Haynes December 5, 2016 at 11:25 am

    I can’t even begin to tell you what a blessing this is to me!!! After being worried about money for the holidays…. this will help wrap up Christmas shopping and a few things for myself. I love your blogs, Shay and Sheaffer.

    Merry Christmas,
