Life Lately and a $300 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

Hi Friends! How has everyone been lately? Can you believe we are halfway through November? I can't. I'm so excited for the holidays but also sort of panicking about how quickly they are approaching.

- We are all settled in to living in the townhouse during the renovation.  We went from about 3500sqft to 1300sqft but it's been going really well.  It's also made me realize how much stuff we have and how much stuff we don't really need!!  I'm hoping to give you all a little tour of the space soon. Our hope is that we can really do a big purge once we move back to our house after the renovation and try to live more simply.  We'll see if I can actually follow through ;)

- Is anyone watching Westworld?  We are obsessed! We missed last night's episode but plan to watch it tonight.  It took me two episodes to get into it but now I'm completely fascinated.

- My kids are sick again this week. We just cannot catch a break this fall.  I feel like we're sick for 2 weeks then finally better and then wham! sick again!  I'm finally breaking down and giving essential oils a try.  My sister is bringing me some tomorrow and I'm hoping that this will help us all get well and stay well.

- The wall between our family room and sunroom came down on Friday and I just can't believe how much bigger and more open the house feels!  I cannot wait to see how it looks once the floor is raised and the wall is framed out.  These aren't the best pictures but it's hard to capture exactly how it looks with supports still up.

- Have you shopped Sephora's VIB sale?  It ends today so you better hurry if you haven't.  I shared my picks yesterday here.

- I'm working on some fun holiday gift guides that I'm hoping to have up soon. I promise not to bombard you with them since I know every blogger does them but I always get so many good ideas from them and I love to share the good deals I see.   Are there any gift guides you would like to see in particular?

-Finally and best of alll... for the next week, I am teaming up with Annie from Home of Malone's and 16 other fab bloggers to give away a $300 Amazon gift card to celebrate Annie's blogiversary! It’s the perfect opportunity to get yourself {or someone else} a wonderful gift for the holidays! The more ways you enter, the better your chances are! The giveaway ends on Friday, November 18th, at midnight. Good luck and be sure to check out all of these fab blogs!

  1. We're watching Westworld too but I'm not sure if I like it or if I'm just really intrigued because it's so different. haha Last night's episode was really good though! I feel the same way too about the sickness with our family, so frustrating. Love the progress on the house!!

  2. I'm glad the townhouse is going well so far. Sometimes you need that 'reality' to let you know that you really dont need all of the "stuff". Hoping the rest of the reno goes smoothly!
    We are into WestWorld also! It's So different but very cool. Our friend was in town this weekend and we were talking about our theories about it!

  3. I LOVE Westworld! Keith and I are always torn on which to watch first on Sunday nights, Westworld or TWD. Love following along on your renovation! So exciting!

  4. i really like Westworld!! at first i was really put off by all of the sexual violence but I think I like that things might change for the machines. Its been so fun to watch the progress of your remodel. We just bought a house and it needs some work -- so we'll be in the same boat too! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  5. Your kitchen!! So exciting!! Don't you love seeing it come along?! My fiance and I are OBSESSED with Westworld. We're currently catching up on the episodes that have already aired, and we both suggest it to each other every night!

  6. I have heard such great things about Westworld! I need to start watching it. We have also been dealing with non-stop colds over here as well... I hate it when babies are sick! I'm so excited to follow along with your reno progress! And I'm always a fan of gift guides. I always need ideas!
