Happy Almost Thanksgiving! I would say “when did that happen?” but the truth is that I have been thinking exclusively about holiday content for the past few weeks 😂 In addition to recipe ideas, I’ve also put together SIX gift guides for you to shop this holiday season! It was really important to me to get these up early, so you have plenty of time to account for shipping delays, support small businesses, and also stalk the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sales for deals!
I’ll continue to update and promote them in case you’re not ready to shop yet, but I hope they’re helpful whenever you are ready! Also, if you subscribe to my Sunday Email Blasts, just know that my Top 5 Bestsellers are just based on the analytics I have access to. Based on the amount of clicks and interest, there’s a chance that some smaller businesses that I don’t get any commission from would be in that top 5 – I just have no way of knowing that. Moral of the story: be sure to check out my Chicago Gift Guide and keep an eye out for the small businesses in the other guides, too – because there are a ton of amazing gifts in there that you won’t see on my bestseller lists.
Oh, and if you don’t subscribe to my Sunday email blasts yet, you can subscribe here. They’re my favorite – I’d love to have you join us!
Sunday Spotlights 24
Adam stopped in Target to pick something up and came home with this holiday pillow with dogs on it 🥰 Not mad about that at all.
Dr. Fauci confirmed that we don’t need to worry about Santa spreading coronavirus this Christmas because he has innate immunity. My heart!
If you are celebrating Thanksgiving on your own (or with just 1 or 2 other people), this Garlic & Herb Roast Chicken is a great alternative to a big turkey! Serve it with this Cranberry Gin Fizz cocktail and thank me later 😉
Speaking of cocktails, this shaker would make a great gift!
Cannot wait to make this fall salad from Grossy Pelosi.
A few of you messaged me to tell me you think I’d like Dash & Lily… and you were 10000% correct. Such a sweet holiday show!!!
Speaking of holidays, we put our Christmas tree up early and I have ZERO REGRETS.
Needed this reminder this week.
Definitely making this pumpkin pie chia pudding this week.
Loved this conversation between Brene Brown and Dolly Parton. I didn’t grow up loving Dolly, but the more I learn about her, the more I understand why everyone loves her so much. She is a GEM.
Also, did you hear Dolly helped fund Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine research, too?!
A new Disney+ movie coming in December?! YES PLEASE!
I love that this fuzzy zip up is also reversible – such a smart idea.
I kept hearing amazing things about this resurfacing night serum, so I treated myself to it during the Sephora Sale. Let me tell ya, the hype is real. I LOVE IT. It tingles a little bit at first, but I love that it exfoliates AND hydrates, especially now that it’s getting cold outside.
My friend Jenn made the most gorgeous and breezy sequin dress I’ve ever seen and now I’m devastated that I don’t have any holiday parties to go to this year 😭 Is it too much for a date night at home with Adam?!
