My Sunday Best, Volume 82: Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! We celebrated with family on Thursday and have been happily eating leftover pie since then. It's always kind of a tricky holiday to navigate since my dad died almost four years ago, but I think we've all figured out that we really need to keep things to just family so that we don't have to worry about how we grieve in front of each other...


Edith pulled her usual trick of flirting with the family behind us and then needing to be removed by the time we got to the Gospel.


Then she spent a while trying to grab the gifts under the giving tree in the lobby, flinging herself to the floor crying when I wouldn't let her (she's learned to temper tantrum like a master), and trying to steal Elizabeth's book.

THEN I put her down and she took two tiny steps. HER FIRST STEPS IN THE MIDDLE OF MASS and I couldn't even say anything because, well, it was the middle of Mass! She turns one on Tuesday and John Paul was SO relieved that she managed to squeak this milestone in right under the wire.

Dress: LulaRoe Nicole
Tights: Boden (30% off today with code CY8H, and free shipping over $49)
Boots: Lucky (on sale today + an extra 20% off, which is the best price I've seen for them!)

I'd been hoping to get a gift guide up for a while, and finally managed to finish my age-by-age gift guide yesterday, so check that out if you're looking for ideas.

A few more Cyber Monday/weekend deals:

Make sure to check out the etsy shops in this post - quite a few of them are running AWESOME weekend deals! 40% off printables at Sweet Little Ones Shop (no code needed), Studio Senn has 20% off with code CHRISTMAS17 , and Flor Larios has 33% off her whole shop with code THANKS2017 .

H&M is having a good sale (30% off $50, free shipping), especially on basics - I picked up these high-waist leggings and they're a nice substantial material, aaaalmost enough to qualify as pants in my book (a little thinner than ponte pants, but definitely thicker than regular leggings). I also grabbed these leggings for the girls, and they're nice and thick + from the Conscious line which I like. Now would also be a good time to stock up on nursing tanks for you and basic shirts for the kids. Also: Star Wars clothes. I got this sweatshirt for John Paul but I'm so tempted by the other offerings!

Looking at other Boden items to push you over the free shipping threshold, this smocked dress is so sweet and totally calling my name, and so is this corduroy pinafore! The sale code doesn't apply to this jersey dress but it's on clearance so already a really excellent deal - I have the green and it's a nice substantial fabric, plus perfect for nursing in.

Bearpaw boots are the only ones I'll buy for the girls now - they're like UGGs in terms of durability and comfort, but MUCH less expensive. Seriously, they're SO hard on shoes and these still look almost new after a year of heavy wear. You can find them on sale at DSW and also Macy's (both with low free shipping minimums).

Don't forget that the MuTu System is 33% off through Cyber Monday (you can read my review here) - use code BF33 for 33% off.

And also until Monday, Lilla Rose Hair Accessories are up to 60% off (I sell these and LOVE them!). The bobby pins and smaller clips make great stocking stuffers!
