I’m giving away two $500 Amazon gift cards today to celebrate Black Friday – be sure to check it out follow me on IG for details!
Hello friends! How are you; I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving! We are here in Arkansas with our pilot’s mom, sister and niece and nephew. It’s our first Thanksgiving out here in years, and it’s great to spend some time together. The girls were so excited to take a trip out here and were blown away by the trees and greenery. It’s a stark contrast from the gorgeous brown and cactus-filled desert of Tucson.
The pilot was visiting his dad this week, who lives in Atlanta, so the girls and I flew in very early Thanksgiving morning and he flew from Atlanta to meet us in Little Rock. We rented a super cute lake house for the long weekend and are looking forward to movies, hiking, and exploring.
Well, we all know what it is today:
I LOVE Black Friday. I have fond memories of shopping with Mom and Nana growing up. We would wake up when it was still dark and go to the shops as they opened. While I enjoy the frenetic energy and chaos (in a weird way), here’s something I enjoy even more:
I eat a piece of leftover cold pie, drink coffee, and order everything online in my pajamas. Technology is a gift, I tell you.
I was able to scout some of the sales early and created this list of the best stuff I’ve found!! I know every blogger and creator in the country is sharing their affiliate links today, so I just wanted to thank those of you who choose to shop through my links. You directly support our family and the work I do here on the blog, and I hope you know how much I appreciate it.
Now, on to the good stuff!
My favorite pillow. I use it every day and love to take extra steps during the work day.
Theragun 33% off. Perfect for sore muscles!
Peloton bike! This is the best price I have seen.
Amazing price on the new iPad. This was Liv’s only Christmas request (along with skincare and makeup).
One of the most fun gifts of the season! I think the kids would go crazy for it.
An Instant Pot in almost half. I use ours at least once a day.
Packable jacketwhich is waterproof and comes in so many colors.
If you have a PS5 on your (or spouse’s) list, this is an awesome package.

Their holiday popcorn trio was a huge hit in our house too. Treat yourself heeeeeere.

Some more of my favorite things:
Erin Condren. This is the planner I order every year on Black Friday for the next year. I’ve been going for 7 or 8 years now (maybe more???) and it helps keep my life together (mostly lol). Paper planners for life. I also order personalized stationery for me and the girls, return labels and notebooks.
Hannah Anderson. This is where we get our holiday PJs every year aaaaand they are 50% off right now.
Spanx set. If you don’t have this set of Spanx yet, it 100% lives up to the hype. It is the softest and dreamiest fabric and I am close to ordering another set. They have dupes on Amazon, but from what I’ve heard, it’s worth it because it’s more tailored and structured. I wore it all day yesterday – on the plane and then to our party! – and it was comfortable all day. Top is here and below are here.
blank: As I write this post, everything is 40% off, but I think it will go up to 50% today… I recently ordered some of the cutest things for P, including this one ruffled sweatshirt, plush t-shirt, pleated corduroy skirt, polka dot t-shirtand floral dress.
Madewell: this is one of my favorites for staples and jeans.
Are you shopping today and Monday??
What’s on your bucket list this year?
