McAlister's Deli Holiday Catering Giveaway!

This post is in partnership with McAlister's Deli.

This holiday season is such a busy time for us working moms (and dads). We all want to slow down and breathe in the season, but with one event after another some of the people in our lives can be overlooked.

Our co-workers and clients have practically become like part of the family since we spend more time with them  than our actual family. Coming from a workplace where catered meals were the highlight of our year, I can get behind a great catered lunch from our beloved McAlister's Deli® this holiday season! Just this week I was craving their famous sweet tea and sugarcane lemonade to get me through my at-home work day! In fact, guess what my first request was after birthing my first child? A sandwich and potato soup from you guessed it, McAlister's Deli. I laugh about this but really, they are a staple here in our home and I am so happy to help spread the word about this amazing giveaway they are doing here in the Jackson area (and four other cities you'll see below)!

  • McAlister’s Deli knows great food brings people together and that’s why this holiday season McAlister’s Deli wants to help celebrate your work family by providing a catered, celebratory meal!

  • I'm super jealous of whoever wins this! Go enter now! When you win, enjoy some of that McAlister's Famous Sweet Tea for me!

Jonah's 7th Birthday | Pokemon

Hello my friends! I am trying to get back to sharing things here and catching up with all the milestones and travel we've done this year, but growing two small businesses and two small boys is a lot of work it turns out! 

This year for Jonah's birthday we decided to keep it super simple and party at Pump It Up. He loved it and it was not so much stress! I do love a good, well-planned party that I have total control over, BUT 7-year-olds love a room full of bouncy houses and slides so that's what he got!

Let’s get cozy!

This post is sponsored by Isotoner but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

The holiday season is finally upon us and I have been waiting for the season since we had our first hint of Autumn here in the south. It’s funny how there’s a certain smell that hits the air that makes us want to huddle in close and spend time on the couch with our precious ones or head to mom’s house and put together a family meal.

The holiday season for us means loads a family time. It means doing the fun, quirky Christmas activities and remembering what we are grateful for all at the same time. It also means picking out the perfect gift for those special to us and I have one amazing suggestion to share with you today, Isotoners.

When it starts getting cold all I want to do is snuggle up in a blanket with a cup of hot coffee or cocoa. So, what better gift to give than the gift of cozy? The 360 Surround Comfort™ of Isotoner slippers is like no other slipper! It’s like a giant hug to your feet. I can have the coziest blanket, softest pajamas but if my feet are cold I’ve completely lost that cozy feeling.

So, while you are looking for the perfect pair to gift, pick up a pair for yourself because taking care of YOU this holiday season is important too.

Shark Pool Party | Ben's 6th Birthday

This week my nephew, Ben, turned 6 years old! It’s hard to believe all of these babies are growing up so quickly. He’s 6 months nearly to the day younger than Jonah, which means my big boy is officially 6 and a half! I know that everyone says it seems impossible that they grow up so fast but honestly I just don’t want to blink.

Creating an Open Cabinet Display + Shelf Styling

Since we bought our house new but finished, we have slowly been making some custom changes to make it more ours and add in a little interest here and there. One thing I've wanted is some open shelving in the kitchen. In our old home, the dining room had two full walls of built-in open shelving and it was one of my favorite parts of the house! It was A LOT to style but I think I did okay. I loved moving things around and changing it up over the few years we lived there.

Friday Favorites | Boys' Room Makeover Inspiration

Happy Friday friends! Today, I want to share some inspiration for boy moms looking for cute, functional design for their boys aging out of the "nursery" stage. We are slowly starting the process of making over the boys' room. It's going to be a bit of a process because there are a lot of decisions to be made and A LOT of reorganizing to be done!

Here are some items I've collected and some things I am hoping to get for the boys' new room! More on this later, but don't you just love an inspo board?!

Simple Spring Mantel

Every time it feels like Spring is here to stay this year, we get a weird cold snap and I want to cozy up again in my winter jammies, but I HAVE been slowly transitioning our house into Spring/Summer and stowing away all the faux fur! I am working on refreshing the rooms in our house to feel light and airy but things are going a little slowly since we are a bunch of busy bees apparently! However, I did want to show you guys what my mantel currently looks like and my new custom sign that I am SO in love with!
