Admit it. You know at least one Crazy Cat Lady (or maybe you ARE one ***coughcoughMEcoughcough***). For many of us, it’s our dream to one day have a house filled to the brim with those furry little bundles of fun (for some of us, our husband’s have made it perfectly clear that this will never, ever happen but we’re still dreaming).

So, without further adieu, here’s a collection of gifts for the crazy cat lady on your list!
It’s been a long held tradition in my life to participate in Black Friday every year! When I was younger, I would stay home and babysit my cousins so my aunt and uncle could shop. Then, I started hitting the sales on my own. Now, I’ve indoctrinated my husband into the joy and bustle of post-Thanksgiving Day deals and we have a good time.

By reasonable expectations, I mean that you need to understand that everything is just stuff. And there’s no reason to be a horrible person over stuff. So, stop grabbing, pushing, and yelling. Get what deals you can and be grateful for those. Everything else is just stuff. And as far as being prepared, here’s my tips for prepping for Black Friday: what to wear and what to pack in your purse!

Some of it is really cool but, let’s be honest, most of it is RIDICULOUS (unless the man in question is The Hipsterist Of All The Hipsters). If he’s is more camo and casting or more gigabytes and Green Goblin than weird facial hair and obscure beers – here’s my suggestions for 10 stocking stuffers he’ll actually want this holiday season (because most men aren’t hipsters):

As many of you know, I love Thanksgiving and host it every year. I have been doing it for so long that I have a set menu, a timeline, and all the supplies I need to create a chic yet simple “event” that everyone enjoys. This year, I decided to add another fun level to my Thanksgiving skillz – a leftovers station!

I sourced all the supplies and am sharing a bunch of FREE printables so you can create your own Thanksgiving leftovers station:
The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming!!! The next couple of months are STRAIGHT UP my favorite of the whole year. All the cooking, shopping, and decorating? Sign me up!

Texas Mom Blogger, Kiss My Tulle, shares Melanie and Finn’s 2016 Halloween costumes: a mermaid and Baby Groot from Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy”!
Okay, full confession, I’ve never been a big Halloween person. I don’t do scary, I hate the idea of knocking on strange doors, and I didn’t grow up in a house that allowed pranks. I did love dressing up when I was younger though – but I always picked really random and weird things. Like, a purple alien or a bunch of grapes. No princesses or fairies for me! If your kid is like me and likes to have a little inventive fun then be sure to check out these 24 completely unique and original Halloween costumes for kids!
