Checking Off My Holiday To-Do List with Famous Footwear

Thank you to Famous Footwear for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

I can't believe how fast this year has gone by.  It was just Halloween right?! I feel like once Halloween is over, we kind of skip Thanksgiving decorations and go straight into Christmas.  Bring on the Christmas music fa lalalalaaaaa!

Every year, I procrastinate.  I'm the crazy person you see buying last minute Christmas gifts at the only stores open on Christmas Eve.  That's me.  Well not this year!!  I'm determined to get everything prepped and ready to go to make this an awesome holiday season for my family and to try to make the holiday cheer last as LONG as possible!! I know my kids are SO excited; they are already making their Christmas lists.  By the time Christmas is here, their lists are going to be a mile long LOL.

I feel like the holiday magic is so special, especially to little kiddos so I am going to try to make this year really special for my family.  I’ve partnered with Famous Footwear to bring you style and comfort during this holiday season!  I used to be able to run errands in some heeled booties, but I’ve found that being a mom, comfort is extremely important.  I still like looking stylish and put together, even when I’m running errands but I do try to make my trips out as efficient as possible…and that means comfort.  I usually run from store to store to find exactly what I have in mind, so you’ll see me in a pair of sneakers.   

I love these Nike Air Max Motion LW Sneakers from Famous Footwear; they are the epitome of style and comfort.  I got mine in the color “Noble Red” to match the holiday vibes and I also love it because it gives a pop of color to a simple outfit. I’ve been busy trying to get things in order for the holidays and I’m already on the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree!  I have a long to-do list for this season and I'm determined to tackle each task with style!! Famous Footwear believes every opportunity is a chance to take a step forward, no matter how big or small.  What’s on your holiday to-do list??

Thanks for reading!

Cybex Cloud Q Infant Car Seat

Alright everyone, it's getting close to that time!! We have about 2 months til go time and this mama is feeling the nesting kick in.  It's so crazy to think we are going to have a newborn in the home again, and it hasn't really hit me until recently.  I started a checklist of what I need to get baby...swaddling blankets, diapers, bottles, crib, bouncer, clothes...and can't forget a car seat!

Thankfully we received the Cybex Cloud Q Infant Car Seat (Here).  It is known for its award winning safety, adjustable sizing, and can't forget the ability to go into a full-recline position for baby outside of the car!  I really wanted a stylish, safe, and dependable car seat for when baby comes.  I feel so much better knowing that we have a car seat that will keep our babe safe and secure as we bring our little one home...so we at least have one thing done and checked off on the list LOL.

A few features that really caught my eye with this car seat was that it has in-car automatic height adjustments for premature or really small babies.  I always get so nervous that they're uncomfortable or that they aren't snug in their car seat.  I love this one because it is so secure and comfy.  It has an adjustable headrest and side impact protection.  And I'll say it again but....full-recline position for the babes...how cool is that?! I don't know about you guys, but my babies always fell asleep in their car seat so this seems like such a convenient feature!  And I love that it can grow with my baby as well; it works for newborns up to kiddos 35 lbs or 30" tall, which is so awesome. Not to mention, it has such a sleek design!

Everyone keeps asking if baby is a boy or a girl, so I'll just answer a few questions here...

We are going to wait to see what we are having, but we are so excited to just have another little angel join our family! At first, Naomi wanted a girl...and Aurora wanted it to be a boy...then Naomi wanted it to be a boy so there could be a boy when they play house HAHA but now they both want it to be a girl. 

Our expected due date is August 24th! I'm currently in waddling stage, and my hips are killing me I feel like an old woman and very anxious for August! 

Another question we get asked is if we have names picked out, and yes we do! We are excited to announce it! ;)

Oh! Also, if anyone has any recommendations on the best car/ what car they have that fits THREE car seats, let me know! hahhah my cute little cars aren't gonna cut it anymore :P
