Knee-High Boots for Wide Calves

It’s pretty hard to believe that we’re in December and the end of 2023 is JUST around the corner. How did this year go by so fast?

We saw the new Trolls movie this weekend. It was 5/10. Even the kids kind of gave it a “meh” rating. I think the storyline just wasn’t super engaging. Regardless, it was a fun thing to do on one of the rainy afternoons we had!

Are you finished with your gift buying? Have you STARTED? I have to say that I think I’m completely done! I wrapped it up on Saturday and I could not be happier about that. I feel like I typically scramble until mid-December but for some reason this year I just put my head down and made quick decisions on kids gifts.

I shared a handful of beauty gifts for teens on Instagram, and got a lot of feedback from moms of teens that a lot of the things I shared were on their teens’ wish list! Check it out here, it’s saved to a highlight.
