Holidays with Mixbook

Ahhh it's the most wonderful time of the year, am I right??! We have so many fun festivities coming up and to kick off the month of December, I like to be right on top of sending out my holiday cards - sending them out on December 1st to be exact.

Now don't think I always have my stuff together, there were plenty of years it was well within the month they were sent out, but the past few years, I've been able to stay on top of it, which I enjoy much better.

I love sending and receiving holiday cards, literally when I see them in the mail I get instantly happy. My kids love seeing them displayed throughout our house too - I really hope sending out cards never goes away!

There are so many places to order  your Christmas cards from, but this year I went with Mixbook - I have used Mixbook several times in the past and I know their quality is top notch. They are always running awesome promos too!!

The collection of holiday cards they have to choose from is plentiful!! There is no way you won't find something you love.

I love that they offer the real gold foil option too - it just adds that extra sparkle to your cards!

I also really appreciate all the different filter options. I always know how many pictures I want to use, so choosing that helps eliminate all cards that wouldn't work, which in turn saves me time!



If you  haven't ordered your cards yet, check out Mixbook and their current promo and you will save TONS of money, and have high quality, gorgeous cards this year!

And for fun, here's a little sneak of our card this year!

Just love those 3!!

So, have you ordered from Mixbook before? Where do you get your holiday cards from?

Girl Chat - November 2018

Hey hey everyone! Hope your week is going well! Ours is but oh my gosh it's getting cold around here!!

Today is another installment of Girl Chat! We're talking all about how we juggle the holiday season

Here's some things I do and it really helps relieve from stress!

Buy Christmas presents as early as possible

I start buying Christmas gifts around September - if I see something at a great price that I know will make a good present, I grab it! Right now I have a huge stash already and am so close to being done! My goal this year is to finish by December 1st so I can enjoy December

Wrap presents early

This goes with the above - I hope to be wrapped by the first weekend of December so I can free up any free time I'll have!

Mark your calendar!

By staying on top of holiday parties, class parties, family get togethers, date nights and whatever else this holiday season will bring, you must mark things down! I already know there are a couple traditions we do every year that fall on certain days, so I make sure to mark those as soon as I know them and continue to update as plans get made

It's ok to say no

This time of year can be SO CRAZY! I know me personally, I have something going on every weekend until Christmas with the exception of 1 day - I don't feel it's too much but if I did I would say no to certain things.

Remember to enjoy the season

With this season brings busy, and with busy can bring frustration. I try and remind myself the reason of the season and that my kids are only little once - that helps me relax and enjoy all the fun festivities!!

We hope you link up below!!

Friday Favorites {11.2.18}

And just like that, it's November! It feels so weird to say that! I want these next 2 months to go as slow as possible because we always have so much fun and I want to soak it all in!


Earlier this week I recapped our family vacation to Anna Maria - if you missed it, you can read about it here  (and see tons of pics!)


Who else is super excited for all the cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies!?!! My hand is raised super high! There are 22 new movies coming out and you know my DVR is set!

Schedule - Countdown to Christmas 2018 - Hallmark Channel


Halloween came and went and it was another one for the books! I was able to volunteer at Avery's preschool in the morning then went to Brayden's party in the afternoon. At our school, 3rd grade is the last year for parties so I asked Brayden which one he wanted me to attend for the year and he chose Halloween. These are the times I wish I could be in 2 places at once because I soooo missed seeing Ella having fun at her party! I'll be volunteering at her Valentine's party so it will even out but still - after school we waited for Rick to get home and headed out for trick or treating! This year it actually wasn't freezing so we enjoyed hours of trick or treating!

Earlier in the week I was able to score these Adidas for $39!! I've been eyeing these forever so I was ecstatic to get this deal! (the deal is over now, boo)

Cloudfoam Pure Shoes Cloud White / Cloud White / Core Black DB0695


A new favorite brand I found is called Maison Jules - it is SO reasonably priced!! I picked up this sweater for $15 and was able to do site to store for free! There are lots of other colors too!!


I'm looking forward to a few hours to get the house clean today while Avery is at school then it's off to the big kids school to volunteer! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
