Monday Morning Musings | No. 229

The holidays are *here*!

Maybe it’s having a baby this year or maybe I’m just getting older, but I genuinely cannot wrap my head around the fact that Thanksgiving is next week! HOOOOW is it even possible?! I am very *not* prepared. Our weekends have been very full lately with family events, friend get-togethers, and all the other fun life things, and I just feel like we’ve been doing our days at full speed, but also in slow motion… does that make sense at all?!

But my goal for the season, and really these next few weeks, is just to take it all in. Soak up the crazy, sweet moments, and the memory-making activities. I was listening to this podcast on how to manage your time this fall and I think all the principles are so applicable for the holiday season, too!

Anyway, that was a bunch of randomness… but I’m typing this as I sit cozied up under my favorite quilt watching it rain while Laurens is sleeping and thinking just how sweet these moments are, and how I never want to forget them. But also, like, they are going to be ten-times better when I have my Christmas tree up! So this week we are diving HEADFIRST into the merriment and I am ready.

So, let’s get into the five things I’m loving right now…

5 Things I’m Loving

A few new obsessions…


The Pearl Clasp

I had a handful of questions about the pink Mary Jane pumps I wore last Sunday, and unfortunately they are super old! But I did find a similar pair (available in four colors, but I’m obsessed with this green!) that are just as pretty AND have a this sweet pearl clasp. (Plus, they are under $60.)

Baby Overalls

On Saturday night I stayed up late doing a little (or a lot, he’s growing out of everything!) online shopping for Laurens and at the top of my list was to find him a handsome Thanksgiving outfit! I can’t believe I found THIS at Carters for under $50. Seriously such a good find. Plus I’m such a sucker for a pair of baby overalls.

Amazon find

Are y’all sick of me talking about this bag yet?! I cannot get enough of it! It’s EVEN BETTER in person and it comes in 10 colors. Seriously, the find of the century!

The Prettiest Plates

If you want to make a statement this season on your holiday table, but not in the mood to splurge, I love (love!!) these $12 plates that come in 7 different patterns. Talk about a real statement maker!

Holiday Cake Perfection

I need to bring a cake on Saturday for Friendsgiving and I came across this recipe and I instantly saved it. The sugared cranberries are just so pretty. I think this would be so fun to make!
