So, Hallie has been asking all the Santa questions and I was hoping to get just one more year out of her believing in Santa, but she knows about the “insert swearword” elf on the shelf, (heres the link, if for some reason you want to torture yourself by getting one…lol) But back to the point, She was asking all the questions and I wanted to make it not so disappointing somehow…
Then I came across this amazing book, “There’s certainly a Santa,” which was written by my cute and clever friend Chelsea Rippy. So, I told her I had a secret to share and I was taking her on a date. We hit up a favorite girly girl spot (Dear Lizzie) for a treat, we love the “dizzy lizzie” drinks, and their desserts…ahem…coconut macarons for the pregnant lady. I gave Hal the book, she wanted to read it herself. I was so nervous… But all in all it went well! (see short clip of her reading the book below) She was obviously disappointed but she said she kinda knew last year, and she’s glad to know the “Super Top Secret” and is excited to be Santa for someone this year!
Then we shopped and enjoyed all the cute trinkets in the store and just had a nice time chatting and making sure she was okay with the new info! She loved the experience and I will do the same for Ty… in a year or two. He’s 9 and still wholeheartedly believes! Its so sad when kids grow up, but this book made the magic of Christmas stay and now Hallie gets to be a part of it!

There is a super great online shop that I love. It’s called Poppy and Dot. They have tons of dresses, cute tops and darling booties. I’ve recently got some great additions to my closet from there and I wanted to share.
This is such a great casual outfit. I especially love the layering look with my baby bump.
This is a super fun dress too. And ultra comfy.
The detailing on this dress is gorgeous! Isn’t it a great color for the holidays?
And one of my favorite Poppy and Dot pieces:
This is such a perfect LBD. This would be a great piece for all of those holiday parties.

Oh my HEAVENS, I have been so excited to show you all this amazing wallpaper from Shop B Darling It is 100% removable and totally damage free, which I am so excited about. I also love that you could put it in a rental, and take it off when you move! My little girls room is coming along, my entire house was put on hold when I had my last babe (who is now 3.5… yeah… its taken me a minute) But I honestly am the worst at accessorizing in a home… its just not my “knack” so until someone tells me what to put I just have nothing on shelves/walls/etc haha. but this space is coming along great!
Oh and I JUST had my carpets cleaned and look at that fresh spill of who knows what… couldn’t get it out before the photographer came… bleh.
I love this letter board for a reasonable price from Hello letter boards the owner is a friend of mine and they are awesome! It comes with letters, but I did buy the Heidi Swap Gold letters from Hobby lobby. can’t find the link to them sorry!!!
pillow shams and cases are a year old from world market, but I found similar colors here. I get asked about their beds all the time, they are just IKEA Sundvik beds, they go from toddler length to a twin sized.
Rug is from target (I also love this round one!) We got this teepee at From The Avenue for Christmas last year, we LOVE it! The girls spend so much time in here all year!
“Little Ladies Live Here” sign from Jaxon Blvd $40
For real the wallpaper from Shop B Darling just made the entire room, I love it every time I walk in and I love that it can grow and change with the girls!
Love you all!
