My Grown Up Christmas List

Grown Up Christmas List via

There are two types of people when it comes to gift wish lists…those that aim for the stars and those that think more practically.  Which one are you?  I’m definitely more on the aim for the stars side, but I do think realistically sometimes!  I very much believe that gifts should be items that the recipient would love, but would never actually buy for themselves (and not necessarily because of price).  So, today, I wanted to share a few things on my grown up Christmas list!

Do you have someone on your Christmas list that is a tad hard to shop for?  Maybe she already treats herself throughout the year and doesn’t have a long “I want this” list.  Or, perhaps she’s rather practical and doesn’t want much in the way of ‘things’.  Well if you have a sister/friend/mom/girlfriend/co-worker/whatever that fits this description and you’re scratching your head trying to figure out what to get her, check out my top 8 favorite things that she’ll want wrapped under her tree this year!

I’m really excited about today’s post, my friends!  And that is because I LOVE Pinterest!  I’ve been doing the Pinterest thing for almost 4 years when it was still in it’s infancy (and you had to request access and wait for your acceptance email to come through in order to start pinning!).  I love how you can find so many different ideas for pretty much anything you can possibly imagine.  After browsing around for holiday ideas lately, I decided that it would be fun to share my favorite holiday pins with you guys!

I don’t know about you, but one of the best things about fall is busting out the boots! Last week while I was in Salt Lake City, I noticed the ladies out there were already sporting their gorgeous boots!  While I’m not quite ready for summer to end, they got me thinking and I’ve been browsing boots online all week!

Spring is here!!


Hello Spring!  We’ve been waiting on you to arrive for a long time!  It’s one of my favorite days of the year…we get to kiss the long winter a hearty goodbye :).  I think pretty much everyone has had a rough go of it this winter, so this collective send off is much appreciated by everyone today!  But, in spirit of the new season, I thought I’d spend a little time sharing some thoughts on the new season…
