So I realize I should definitely have some sort of holiday gift guide up by now… or at least be working on one, but I just feel like 1. everyone needs to relax and remember that we are fortunate enough to live in a time that Amazon Prime exists and 2. I just really don’t feel like it 🤣 plus there’s already so many great ones out there ya know?! #pleasedontmakeme #maybeafterthanksgiving #MAYBE.
If I’m really being real, the only actual reason I buy any gifts ahead of time at all (aka prior to Christmas Eve) is so my Christmas tree doesn’t look completely naked and lame with no gifts underneath it. I have at least 50 people to buy gifts for, and literally the only person I’ve bought for so far is my nephew, and he won’t even be able to open nor appreciate any of the eight adorable outfits I’ve gotten him so far. In his defense though he’ll still be nestled up in my sister’s womb until the end of January, so that seems like a fair enough excuse I guess. PS in case you haven’t noticed, I kind of have this
thing addiction for children’s clothes. Some might consider it unhealthy… Some might be right. BUT we all need an outlet, and mine just happens to be timeless, darling miniature pieces of classic clothing. Sue me. I mean there’s way worse addictions out there! But I won’t use gambling as an example because I’ve actually come up with a recent/genius idea that I plan on pitching to Mark Cuban as soon as I can get around to it… ready for this? THE HARD SMOCK CASINO. Picture it – A getaway for moms where caffeine and alcohol is readily available (& socially acceptable no matter the time of day), yoga pants encouraged (possibly required), and your winnings from the smock machines will go straight to your PayPal account. Since it only took me a mere 5 years to start this blog, I’m sure the Hard Smock will be up and running in nooo time.
While I’m at it, I’ll go ahead and reveal another not so secret fact about myself. Aside from picking out cute outfits for me & P, the only other true skill I feel like I’ve mastered in my lifetime is the art of procrastination. It’s a blessing and a curse really. It’s great in the sense that I’m able to easily relax and blissfully ignore whatever adultish tasks I need to handle, but pretty annoying when our cable gets turned off because I end up completely forgetting about said adult tasks. Oh, why aren’t the bills setup to be on autopay you ask? Well my friend, that requires filling out a form, which brings me right back to my impressive procrastination skills. So if any of you share this “gift” with me and have yet to determine what the heck you’ll be putting on your body for Thanksgiving next week, I’ll save you the trouble of trying to figure it out last minute. I’ve included some adorable and comfortable items below that will allow you to have your turkey and eat it too! Everything linked includes free shipping and returns, but order fast so it arrives on time! Or you can always take my typical approach and just pay extra for priority shipping. Whatever works, amiright?!
