2016 Holiday Gift Guide: For The Kids

2016_holiday_gift_guide_kids_header

Honestly, I just don’t know how Santa does it!

Finding unique gifts for the kids (big and small) is probably the hardest part of holiday gifting. It starts off pretty straightforward when kids are young, but as they get older, our once sweet children become the most difficult parties to please! Ugh, and don’t get me started on those moody, temperamental, too-cool-for-school tweens — challenging, to put it mildly.

Good thing they’re cute.

The Best Cyber Monday Sales To Shop

If you’re anything like me, Black Friday is simply a day you wear black (it’s most slimming to conceal your Thanksgiving meal sins!), sit in front of the TV/iPad and totally veg out with little to no interaction with the “outside.”

Fighting aggressive crowds in overheated stores and packed parking lots is not exactly my idea of fun. But that’s just me… Personally, I prefer spending a few quality hours in front of my laptop with a coffee in hand on Cyber Monday and totally rocking my holiday shopping list.

Bucket List

Did you guys sleep at all last night!?

I’ll be honest, I couldn’t handle the election result anxiety and fell asleep around 10:30am, only to wake up at 2 am to the news of a new President Elect.

With the 2016 Election results official, (for better-or-worse) this country is headed for major change. Based on the voter turnout and the months-long hostility brewing between constituents, clearly people felt moved enough about the current state of the country to make their voices heard and exercise their right as citizens.

So with new leadership being positioned to take over in 2017, now is the ideal time for us all to consider what all this change means for us and the things we want to see happen for ourselves, our friends and family and our country in 2017.

As promised, I’m back with the second installment of 20 Questions!

I was so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed this little exercise LAST TIME AROUND! This week, I’m digging in and answering a few of the tougher questions I’ve had sent over.
