Hey Everyone, It’s the first week of November and I’ve been itching to get my Christmas décor out sometime this week. Halloween was a doozy we went to my brother-in-laws office event where they had the entire bank all decked out in Halloween spirit with candies and a haunted house. We ditched the door-to-door trick or treating due to super cold weather. But the boys really enjoyed passing out candy to other kids. I wanted to come on here today and share some of my favorite boots for the winter. So many options and so much out there…rain boots, snow boots, OTK boots, boots with the fur, and if you’re from Idaho even cowboy boots! I want to make sure you get the most of your money’s worth as you shop this holiday season.
The Sorel boots are warm as ever! A bit of a splurge but so worth it! The ones I’m wearing in this picture are kids size linked here! I have very small feet, I wear a size 5 and sometimes 5.5 so I managed to get these in the kids size and they cost almost $100 less than the women’s size 5. (just a fun tip I learned from another mommy blogger over the years for shoes, if you have small feet check some kids sizes, works like a gem!)
These are dupes to the Sorel boots! Super light, I wear them as my everyday winter boots. I’ve had them for over a year now and they are still good as new. I found them at Tjmaxx, talk about budget friendly buys. I could not link the exact pair but another pair of boots almost identical that I spotted at target I’ve linked here.
These are by far the warmest winter boots. As far as styling them they are a bit more on the casual side but if you’re looking for boots to keep your toes warm in temperatures below zero these are it! I’ve had mine for a while now and I’ll wear them to do errands around town or playing in the snow with the kids. The plush lining inside is the best part because it keeps my feet warm. If your headed to Park City or Sun Valley this winter or any ski trips these are perfect for walking too, very comfortable and best of all warm!! I had a pair I wore in college that ultimately had to be retired after several years of use. These are perfect for college students! Walking between classes to different buildings in the winter can be a nightmare! But these keep your feet so toasty! A great holiday gift for a college student too!
Rain, sunshine, or snow these work great! You can use them in the spring rain, during fall at the muddy pumpkin patches, and you can use them in the winter snow! However, I would definitely purchase hunter socks with the boots if you decide to use them in the winter because those worn without the socks are meant for rainy days.
That was my round-up of winter boots! The price range varies so if you’re up for splurging then definitely go for the Sorel, they are by far my favorite during the winter!
I’m sorry I have managed to disappear again! I’ve been sick, yes it caught up to me! My younger one got an ear infection over the weekend and somewhere in between I got sick too! But I’m feeling much better I got to nap yesterday for a couple hours.
But my short nap lead to chaos I woke up and found our bathroom drain closed, with water filled in the sink, towels flushed down the toilet, and after that a very exhausted toddler who decided to nap right next to me in a dirty diaper, he napped from 4-6pm! Ahhh!!! Any toddler mom’s worst nightmare is basically a toddler napping after 4pm! He ended up being up until 11pm last night. So much for a nap, who was I kidding, mom’s clearly can’t be sick or nap!
I used my time until JJ fell asleep to get some much needed laundry done, some instagram posts planned out and I got to catch up on emails last night and good thing I did because I was reminded of the Jcrew Factory 60% off everything sale!

Hey guys! Have you decorated your fall porch yet? I braved through a 45 minute trip to Target with the boys yesterday and I found SO many great home decor items for the fall at Target! I’ve bundled up some of my favorite finds, these were affordable festive things for the home!
TARGET is ALWAYS a good idea! I found so many great pieces I’ve decided to do two different blog posts this ones for home decor and the next one will have all the amazing closet pieces I brought home!
Here I’ll share all my fun fall/home décor items, I’ll link everything right here for you!
I hope my picks have inspired you to pumpkin spice up your home for the fall! Has the weather adjusted to the season where you live?
Hey Friends! You know how just last week I was so happily welcoming fall, well that lasted for about two minutes because the weekend was freezing we had our first snowfall for the season. The boys were so excited to see the flurries coming down and wondering why they couldn’t just yet make a snowman, little do they know the long winter ahead, yikes!
I didn’t get a chance to pop on here last week very much we had a house of sick toddlers that lead to days off of school and no soccer practice! I basically had to keep Rayyan’s asthma under control which meant trying to keep a three year old from running around we resorted to reading books, playing cards, doing workbooks, practicing our letters/numbers basically A LOT of mommy and me time and best of all snuggles! But all good now, we had a relaxing weekend sipping on hot drinks and cozying up by the fireplace. I finally see a sight of recovery!
Even though the weather may be going crazy on us I still am going to keep these fall vibes going because I love this season! Today I wanted to style a closet essential for every mom, sneakers!! Sneakers are my go-to shoes for pretty much all the day-to-day run around. There are so many fun ways to dress up sneakers from wide leg pants to even dresses!
What are some ways you like to style your sneakers? Are you an adidas or nike fan? What’s your go-to comfy shoe? I hope some of these looks have inspired you to dress up your kicks!
It’s finally Fall! Bring me all things, cozy, and pumpkin spice! Here’s to a season of cozy sweaters, Halloween spooking, apple picking and pumpkin patches! I love a change in season. Even though some seasons are shorter than others in Idaho I’m still so grateful we live in a place where we can experience all four seasons.
This time of year is my favorite because fall fashion is all about layering. As I’m hearing more and more about capsule wardrobes I am getting more hooked to the idea of making the most out of what is in my closet. For years I always go shopping at the beginning of every season to freshen up my wardrobe without thinking about what is actually in my closet and what I really am purchasing. I’ve learned the importance of capsule pieces and buying clothes that can be styled various different ways.
If you haven’t heard already there is a sale happening at Old Navy 25% off your order (no code needed)! So many gorgeous affordable fall pieces in right now that are perfect for adding to your fall capsule. I have linked some of my top finds right here!
Also, I want to know what works best for you! Would you rather I do a try-on session on my instagram stories? Would you rather I post pictures of styling your capsule pieces? Let me know your thoughts below!
Wow! It’s been a while since I posted on here! We have had a full summer between traveling and quality time with cousins. Our summer started off in May with a trip to Las Vegas where we enjoyed soaking up the sun and pool time with Nanna and Nani. Upon our return, we had my husbands side of the family here for the rest of the summer and took a trip out east for a family wedding. We went all over the east coast Virginia, Maryland, DC, New York City, and New Jersey. That was a three week long vacation the longest we have probably ever been away from home. We got home and the kids just wanted to enjoy the house, our backyard, and all their toys!
With summer coming to an end so is my sanity we are so ready for a routine. The boys are just in preschool but even those three hours of time I get in the morning to enjoy a hot cup of coffee, a workout, or even reading a book without distraction are very blissful.
I love this time of year! We start getting more organized, the weather starts to cool down, we establish a better routine, things are way less chaotic, and of course back to school shenanigans!
There are so many great sales going on for back to school. My favorite place to order the basics is definitely Amazon! Anytime I have to haul the kids to a store is too hectic between potty runs and their attempts at jumping out the cart I go pretty crazy! So this year I’m trying to do as much as I can online. I’ve linked a bunch of back to school basics right here from school supplies, to backpacks, lunch bags, and even socks because I swear there’s a sock thief that lives in that washer and dryer with every load we lose at least one or two pairs of socks!
