How To Make Halloween 2020 Special

I don't know how Halloween will work this year- trick or treating? Parties?  Probably not.  It's going to be strange for all of us.  

One thing I've learned in my past few years of parenting is that the little things (like a surprise balloon or visiting "the spooky stuff" at Target) are often the most exciting parts of a holiday for my little ones.  

Here are some ideas to make Halloween special this year:

Halloween pjs- some picks here.  

Decorate with bats or big big balloons.  

Ophelia adores these sticker books.  

A Halloween movie: Room on the Broom on Netflix is very cute,  and the classic Charlie Brown!

A witch pinata!  So fun.  

Some of our favorite Halloween books:  this one, this one, and this one.  

Some themed serveware is always a big hit- we have these bowls, and these cups are super cute.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020

Woohoo!  It's that amazing time of the year when Nordstrom puts brand new, fall clothes on sale before they've ever been seen before. 

 This year, it's a little different.  Everything is available to preview and wishlist today, and it opens to cardholders next week (apply here- you can get a debit card that hooks up to your regular bank account, it doesn't have to be a credit card! ), and everyone else the week after.  It kind of feels like Christmas in August- brand new things we will use all winter, at prices we won't see after the sale ends.  Here are some of my first picks!  If you're not a cardholder, check back in August and get the scoop then.

If you are pregnant the Zella maternity leggings are included!  

And if you're newly postpartum- or, um, just a regular person who wears leggings- the Zella high rise ones are AMAZING for holding everything in place, and the Spanx leggings everyone is obsessed with are included! 

The Ugg slippers are part of the sale this year- would make a good gift idea!

The rest of my picks from the preview:

Link Love - Pretty Finds From Around the 'Net

Is it cool to say net these days?  Probably not.  

All of these lake rentals make me want to book a trip ASAP.  

This parenting Instagram account somehow knows just what I need and helps me out every day.  

Love, love, LOVED this summer read.  

Can't believe this bedroom makeover is all IKEA. 

I love this summer beach sweater that’s currently 40% off. Perfect for summer nights after a long day of sunning!

Ian and I are rewatching this old HBO series for like the third time- it's just so good.  

So many great skincare brands out there…but every time I try something new I end up returning to this cleanser.

This rug makes me want to redo my house.  

This is the best everyday tank, hands down.  

The Doen new arrivals are how I want to dress when I grow up.

On My Reading List

Nothing like a rainy day  and your toddler taking a long nap toto plan out your next reads.  Currently reading this book and it's beautifully written.  I like it... but I don't LOVE it.

On deck:

this thriller people are raving about.
this one that looks SO good.
this one has beach read vibes.
and this memoir from an author whose novel I loved.

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Honestly, I think every mom deserves a trophy this Mother's Day- we've earned it.  

1.  My letter necklace would make such a great gift- I have mine personalized with the initials of everyone in our family!
2.  I have my eye on these sandals- a step up (read- comfortable!) from the usual Target pair.  
3.  Obsessed with this mama canvas bag
4.  I'm not sure if its a sign of old age, but I would love to receive planters for a gift.  
5.  If your mom doesn't have a Nespresso, and you're looking to splurge, this would be an amazing gift.
6.  A trip to the tropics for her face- obsessed with these tanning drops.
7.  A pretty pair of jammies.
8.  Love this mama sweatshirt!
9.  An upgraded set of throw pillows is always a great gift!
