Hey, there! My sister (Scotti) is visiting for the week, with baby Greenlea and hubs in tow. We’re having a blast (and my makeup is obviously on point, one of the benefits of having a makeup artist for a sister, haha). We have an Ugly Christmas Sweater party to attend on Sunday, so last night we had friends over and made terrible sweaters with glue guns and $40 worth of crap from the Dollar Store. Booze was obviously involved, and It. Was. Glorious. I’ll throw my um…”masterpiece” up on Instagram soon (@shanachristine).
My favorite parka sold out at Nordstrom, but thanks to a few readers, it’s also been found at Zappos, here, on sale for $145 with free shipping (all sizes and colors in stock)….and Bluefly, here for $129 (all sizes but small available). Thanks, Guys! (For reference, I wear an XS, and it IS warm. I originally thought it would not be super warm, but I’ve been wearing it all week and it’s perfect.)
J.Crew is having an insane sale. If you do nothing else, go buy these PJs before they sell out. (We’re kicking off Loungewear week on Sunday, so you’ll see me in them.) I might put together a quick sale round-up…there’s seriously good stuff (like this plaid night-out top).
Having trouble with Liketoknow.it on Instagram? You can see my full stream here. Once you login (it’ll prompt you to create an account if you haven’t already), you’ll see all of my liketoknow.it-enabled posts, with clickable links. It’ll look like this:
Amanda found Childs Play Charity, where you donate directly to children’s hospitals across the country with either cash donations, or by choosing something from the hospital’s Amazon wish list. Amanda says, “I just sent gifts to one in our city & where my hubs grew up for his “white envelope” Xmas present.” Love this.
Cam says, “Do any of you watch This is Us?! This was me after the season finale … O.M.G. THAT SHOW.”
Hey, where’s the daily newsletter??? We’re having a few technical difficulties, but it should start up this week. (The weekly one is fine.) You can sign up here.
I was so moved by my friend Lane’s recent post on how things change as children grow. Cue alllll the memories, you guys.
Jess just moved into a new house. We’re obsessed with her fireplace makeover. Here’s a before-and-after: (you can see more on her Snapchat, @jesssbobesss)
Lastly, this might be the very best reason to have eight children….
