First up today, I have an announcement to make. Gather round ladies, cause it’s a big one.
I’M NAMING A NEW MUST HAVE!!!!
I KNOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! I haven’t named one in soooooo long, so it’s ABOUT DANG TIME! It’s the last post of 2016, and I thought we should go out with a bang! Originally, I was going to make it my first post of 2017…but the boots are on sale, and I was too afraid that they would either sell out of popular sizes by Monday, OR the sale would end. SO IT HAD TO BE TODAY!
If you’re new to the blog, the title of MUST HAVE is reserved for only my VERY FAVORITE pieces. You know I’m of course always sharing things I love with all of you…but if it’s an item that I ADORE, and I feel like it would serve a great purpose in lots of ladies’ closets, then it gets the MUST HAVE title! #itskindofabigdeal #tomeanyways #justplayalong 😉

Like I said on Facebook the other night, the boots that arrived at my house were much darker than they appeared on the website. There are a ton of readers out there that apparently had these boots before I ever mentioned them, and I feel like the color debate is split. Everybody LOVES their boots….but some people say they feel their boots are the true “cookie dough” color that appears on the website….and others (like me) say the color is quite a bit darker.
So the color wasn’t what I was expecting, BUT I DON’T EVEN CARE. I love them. And I’m keeping them. And I feel like all of y’all need them too. It’s a character flaw I have. I want people to know, experience, AND LOVE things that I love! I just get so excited to share things, and want y’all to at least try them also!
I MEAN. THEY’RE GORGEOUS, they’re comfy as all get out, and I love the detailing (the stitching, the zippers, the buckles)….I LOVE IT ALL. I found them to be totally true to size. Click HERE for all available colors.
Check out some of the other colors here (mine are supposed to be the color on the very right, but they obviously aren’t). Just click on what you are interested in:
Several of you asked to see a full length picture with the boots on me. The outfit that I was wearing in my close up picture of the boots is actually for Monday’s post… but I decided to throw on a different outfit so y’all could see. #iaimtoplease
I love mixing black and brown together, so I think these brown boots with the black jeans is a match made in Heaven. You’ve seen me in this top once before, and I keep reaching it because of the coziness factor. I’m wearing a small, so it’s true to size (and meant to be a bit over-sized). If you need a pair of black jeans, look no further. I absolutely love these, and the reviews are EXCELLENT (43 5 STAR REVIEWS). Some reviews talk about a weird smell (the dye I guess?), but I didn’t have this problem with mine. Click HERE if you want to see the post with close ups and a more thorough review of the jeans.

If you are new around these parts :), you might want to take the time to click HERE to check out other items (and read full reviews) that I’ve named MUST HAVES over the years (many are still available). Click HERE if you want to see the tunic highlighted that was my other MUST HAVE this year! It’s ON SALE for $27.90! Here are some of y previous MUST HAVES:
Again, I know a lot of y’all are new to the blog since I did my SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MUST HAVE post back in April of this year. That post included items that I didn’t name MUST HAVES when I found them, but after they eventually became favorites of mine, I felt that they should have been given the title. These are items that I reach for again and again.
Besides the military jacket and the watch, all items seem to be still available. Some of these items I wear daily, and others I reach for at least a couple of times a week. They are NECESSARY for me. #imusthavethem

In addition to all of the MUST HAVE GREATNESS above, I wanted to share a handful of pictures from our Christmas break and Christmas morning. I’m telling you right now, Christmas break has been OUR FAVORITE. We do it up right over here. 🙂 At the beginning of break, we headed to the new Movie House and Eatery in town to go see Sing! We loved it! And I loved the cheese fries too.
We went to Christmas Eve service at church, and I captured this sweet shot.
Upon returning home, he immediately changed in to his comfy clothes (like his mama always does! smart boy!), and we made cookies for Santa.
Christmas morning he was so much fun to watch! He was happy, grateful, and just so sweet. Santa came thru in a big way and brought him this nerf machine gun. I think that’s what it is anyway. Chris and I had the best time just watching him lose his mind! 🙂
He got lots of games (we are especially loving Suspend, Gravity Maze, and Bop It) and lots of Under Armour as well. You can find the sweatshirt pictured HERE (and now it’s ON SALE and available in 2 additional colors)! Actually , there’s Under Armour on sale for the entire family HERE.
Sadly, Chris’s family was taken down by a stomach bug, and they didn’t get to join us as planned. My family came over, and Carter and Brody had the best time together. They are 5 years apart, so I’m thrilled they still manage to have a ball playing with each other.
Take a second to soak up the cuteness.
And here they are with my parents! I love this picture!
Have a wonderful weekend and a fun and safe New Year’s Eve! See y’all back here in January! 😉
