Fa la la la La Croix!
Anyone who knows me knows that I am rarely without a can of LaCroix in hand save for the hours of 5-9am when I am chugging back coffee and slapping myself awake. What you don't know is that I literally grew up on LaCroix. My parents didn't allow any pop in our house so the only way we could scratch that itch was by gulping down cans of flavored sparkling water.
In hindsight, it was a fabulous habit to enforce and now one of my daughters walks around with her own LaCroix. Yes, she's four years old and it could appear a bit ridiculous but hey...I know how to get her to consume more water!
These little cans are void of sweeteners, calories or sodium so when I tell you I plow throw them...I'm not kidding! Well, this season they launched their Holiday Variety Pack which may or may not have evoked a little happy dance from yours truly. I mean, the packaging alone is a color lover's dream. The pack houses three of my favorite flavors: cran-rasberry, berry and tangerine.
P/S: Dear LaCroix...can you please add coconut next year? Just sayin...
Pick up the Holiday Variety Pack at your local Mariano's and share a smile with the gift of LaCroix. This year we'll be gifting smiles to all our hostesses who've so graciously invited us into their homes for the holidays, our mailman, our nanny, our neighbors...anyone and everyone that helps my family throughout the year. From shoveling sidewalks to baking cookies for us - no good deed goes unnoticed!
That's one habit you'll never regret taking up! Who will you gift a smile to this season?
Get festive with my outfit, too!
If there’s one holiday I am fully supportive of coordinating outfits for - it’s the Fourth of July. Hands down. Every year I snag red, white and blue outfits from Target for the girls because they ride bikes in our hometown parade. <super Normal Rockwell, I know> And, undoubtedly, the temps are near 100+ so cool, comfortable pieces are the name of the game. Bonus points if they transition from day to evening with added layers for the firework show.
How was your Mother’s Day? Admittedly, mine was perfect and I am not saying that in a braggadocios manner at all. I asked for two things this year: an excellent, champagne-filled brunch and a nice, long nap. I got both so color this momma happy.
It recently dawned on me that it’s been ages since I last did an outfit post. I guess life has been busy! Trust me, I’ve been wearing clothes. I swear!
You may have your NYE outfit picked out. Where are my procrastinators out there?
Blink and the holidays are over. Just when you finally can come up for air, we have one more windsprint to get through: New Year’s Eve. It’s truly one of my most favorite holidays outside of Halloween. As a Gemini, turning the page to a fresh new chapter and embracing change is something I will always get behind. Change is good!
Tis the season for kissing under the mistletoe which means you better make sure your pearly whites are prepped and primed. I know I’m not alone on this! Even my kids know, “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus” by heart!
If there’s ever a time that I love to host parties at my house, it’s during the month of December. Gimme all the sparkle and all the glam...sweets help, too!
I just love the magic of the final two months of the year. The uplifted moods, the music, the twinkle and the excuse to majorly blow off any diet I may have been on. You only live once, right?
Well, I have the great fortune with this blogging hobby to get first glimpses at some of the most unique venues, experiences and events and I kinda feel like it’s my job to share the good cheer so you can enjoy them with your favorite gal pals or family, too. Whatdyasay?
I wasn’t in the mood this year to do a big Black Friday post; I will be honest with you. That was until I woke up this morning and saw the gigantic savings to be had. It gets better and better each year. I swear. I mean….60% off at Nordstrom. You cannot beat that!
Besides my family’s health and safety, the one thing I am most grateful for in 2018 is friendship. I’ve touched on the subject quite a few times, most recently here, but they have a tremendous impact on my daily outlook and my energy. My girlfriends give me a support system that is irreplaceable.
