IT’S FIVE DAYS OF FABULOUS!!!!!!
For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about…every year, the week after Thanksgiving, Sheaffer and I host a HUGE giveaway where every single day PRIZES ARE WON!
We’re not talking about small prizes either (or the kind of giveaway where you have to start following 15 people on Instagram just to get one entry). No ma’am! We are talking about HUGE PRIZES, PERFECT GIFT IDEAS AND EASY ENTRIES! This is our annual THANK YOU TO OUR SWEET READERS, and we get so excited about it each and every year!
Now, this week, I’ll still be posting my normal stuff (my NOVEMBER BOOK REVIEW IS TOMORROW!), but along with the “normal” stuff will be a ton of giveaway fun too.
Friends, GET EXCITED!!!!! Every year, we try and top the last, so HUGE THINGS AWAIT!!
We’re kicking off this week with ONE WINNER AND 9 OF HER FRIENDS each receiving…
Yes!!! One winner will get to pick either a blardigan or Bose speaker for up to 9 people!! Both are SUCH AMAZING GIFT IDEAS!! ONE WINNER PLUS NINE FRIENDS GET TO WIN!! We have an extra entry option worth FIVE POINTS if you tag your nine friends on Instagram! (Let’s be real, you should probably have them enter and tag you too!) If you’re not on social media, no worries! You can always sign up for our daily emails as well!
I have talked about these blardigans (which is a cardigan that feels soft like a blanket) for YEARS! It is the #1 thing I’ve gifted to the ladies in my life. No matter if the occasion is the holidays, they just had a baby, they have recently been diagnosed with cancer, or just a birthday, the blardigan seems to be my gift giving answer to everything. The winners get to pick either the cozy chic circle caridgan or coastal hooded cardigan one. So, you pick one of those or one of those awesome wireless speakers that EVERYONE will love! Enter to win on the Rafflecopter below!
Okay, so you want to hear something else cool that I’m doing today?! I’m teaming up with Tom & Sheri’s Iron in a Bottle and friends to benefit Micaela’s Army Foundation as they raise support and awareness for pediatric cancer research. HOW COOL IS THAT?! My brother has been working with Micaela’s Army for years, and I had the pleasure of meeting her sweet mom at his wedding and friends, THEY ARE DOING AMAZING THINGS FOR PEDIATRIC CANCER AWARENESS! When my friend Austin (who owns the awesome Tom & Sheri’s Iron in a Bottle) reached out to Sean and me and asked if we wanted to do a special today where the proceeds go to them, I was like YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fifteen percent of all sales on Cyber Monday will be donated directly to Micaela’s Army Foundation. PLUS, YOU GET 15% OFF AND FREE SHIPPING WHEN YOU SPEND OVER $50! Use the code MAMONDAY.
Smith wrinkled the shirt…
He was so proud 🙂 . And then, we sprayed on Tom & Sheri’s…
…and the wrinkles just fell right out. We use this stuff EVERY.SINGLE.DAY around here! On my recent trip to NYC with girlfriends, three of us brought it with us! It’s an amazing product that today is supporting an amazing cause. USE CODE MAMONDAY!
Whew! Okay…there’s even more today 🙂 . Here’s a little look at our Thanksgiving weekend. We had such a fun time!
On Wednesday night, we kicked off things with a trip to North Park Mall in Dallas. It’s all festive and decorated for the holidays, so we strolled, shopped a little and had dinner. I love these girls so much! Psssst: my sweater is HERE.
Three sisters and a fountain picture! Andrew and Smith were there…but I don’t have any proof. Hahaha!
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade vibes 🙂 .
This is the only pic I took on Thanksgiving…and it’s perfect. My sweet grandparents (who are in their 90s!) and my four precious kiddos. I love this so much!!
After a fun Thanksgiving, I curled up in bed with a book, a Hallmark movie and a Madeley 🙂 .
On Friday afternoon, we met my parents on our town square for McKinney’s annual Home for the Holidays. This is one of my VERY FAVORITE things we do here in McKinney, TX! It’s always SO FESTIVE AND FUN!! Here is Kensington playing in the snow 🙂 . After that, the big kids went to “ice skate”…
Sweet Ashby is such a trooper! She couldn’t ice skate, but she sure did cheer them on!
So did this one!!
…and Kensington too!
Sean and Catherine put up all of their Christmas decorations that day, so they couldn’t join us, but we were super happy Lovie and Papa Jay could!
Love this guy 🙂
While the big kids finished skating, I took these girls to the obstacle course. With tickets in hand, they were PUMPED!
In they went!
And out they came!
This is how Madeley came out. Bahahahahahaha!
Just the most WONDERFUL time of the year!!!
McKinney had it “snowing” all over the square!
Love my dad!
After this, we ate pizza for dinner and then…
…headed back out for the rock wall!
The big kids loved climbing up there! The littles passed on this one 🙂 .
It’s dark, but do you see three of my kiddos?!
They waited in line to ride the train. They waited like the perfect little angels that they are…
And we ended the night fighting over the big bag of kettle corn. I love this night so much!!!
Then on Saturday afternoon/night…
…we met up with the entire family in my parents’ town for a little festive fun! We checked out all of the Christmas decorations and enjoyed a yummy Mexican dinner that night. Look at those sweet faces!!
