Teen Boy, Tween Girl & Baby Girl Holiday Guide

Happy Holidays! So shopping is getting a tad bit more complex when it comes to shopping for the two gen Z children that I've got. Take that and add Aria (not sure what gen she is yet) and I'm all over the place shopping. I've got one gen Z boy and 1 gen z girl and just when I thought my Toys R Us days were over...ha! Here comes baby girl!

So my birthday is approaching and well obviously enough I am another year older. I'm pretty confident in saying that this year, 2017, has most definitely defined a lot of things for me. I've learned a lot about my strengths and weaknesses this year as both a woman and a mother. I wonder how many women can remember the fearless girl, teen, or young woman that they used to be. Most importantly I wonder how many women still recognize themselves. Life and relationships surely do have a super funny way of changing our very own perception of self.

If there's one thing I hope for, I hope to give Aiden, Addison, and Aria lasting memories of the holiday season. I absolutely make a big deal about the holidays. My reasoning behind my over the top holiday spirit is to achieve an unforgettable, warm and secure holiday heart within all three of them! So with that, everyone gets their own pair of holiday pajamas, we drink hot cocoa and bake a lot of cookies!

A mother never truly realizes how quickly time flies until the day you wake up and your baby is a teen! I can truly attest to this as my son hit the big teenage milestone this year. I am honestly still adjusting to being mom to a teen! As my older two continue to grow I am reminded daily that Aria will only be this little for a short time.

Happy Friday! Things have been a little hairy and hectic here lately so when it gets this way I try my best to dig into the positive. Easy enough since I love decor and I live for the holidays. So I in a total real life overwhelmed state of mind took a quick me time trip just to get out of the house. If you are a mom or wife and have been for a little while than you know exactly where I am coming from!

What do you consider yourself? Are you an introvert or an extrovert? I like to say that I am a introvert/ extrovert. Ha! For the most part I am a highly expressive individual. I've never really had an issue "saying it like I mean it" and in current times I love the ability to connect and or catch up on things with a simple swipe! However, there are some aspects of social that have pushed me into a bit of an introvert.

It's totally my favorite time of the year, you guys! Ahhh, I am THE biggest Christmas dork. I love all things magical and just the over - all abundance of joy during the holiday season. This time last year I was seven days out from giving birth, on the cusp of competition season for cheer and about to battle an unwelcome  case of mastitis! I do not wish that on my worst enemy. Never have I ever felt that kind of pain before! I don't think we put the tree up until after December last year which is ridiculously late for us.
