Holiday Spirit!

I am just itching to put the Christmas tree up, but alas the hubs insists its too early. I say its never too early for Holiday decorations, and the amount of effort it takes to hall everything up from the basement... Oh boy! But they look so darn great!!

Well,I guess I will settle for some festive Holiday baking for now. Like these amazing cookies from Oh,Sugar Events. These are way to cool to eat! I am trying to convince this company to ship these to Canada!!

I also love this idea of truffle hot chocolate. What a neat gift this would make for a hostess, or teacher! Balls of chocolate you just drop into hot milk! How decadent!

Here is a fun Christmasy activity for the kids, or kids at heart! How about playing with Gingerbread play dough!!! Ahhh I bet the smell alone makes you want to eat it, and hey if your like my kids, you probably do eat it!

If you plan on attending several Holiday parties, you might want to check out Rachel Pally! One of my favorite designers. Her clothes are effortless, super comfy and you can wear them over and over for many occasions. Just change up your accessories, and you have a different outfit every time! The caftan dress is my favorite style. This dress got me through two pregnancies, and they look great with gladiator sandals or heels!

The Giddy Up & Grow Holiday collection is almost sold out! It will only be available until December 1st, so don't wait if you plan on getting any holiday accessories for your littles!

The Heart Giddy Valentine's Day Collection is also in the shop now! Check out some of the new items! Lots of hot pink, glitter and sparkle! These make great gifts!!

Its Wednesday (hump day), so have a terrific res of the work week!!

Its November!!

I can't believe we are into November already. Aside from the cold, snowy weather here where we live, I love this time of year! Full of festivities with family and Friends, snow sledding, warm drinks and hot fires! I can feel the excitement building as we draw closer and closer to the "big day". It seems on a daily basis, that there is another new "huge" flyer or holiday shopping guide on my door step. The kids love looking at the wish books, and picking out the toys they want to tell Santa to bring in his sleigh.

I love all of the special food that is created over the holidays. Small bite sized anythings is always a favorite! These bite size cheese and cracker tuxedos are super cute! Found at this amazing food website!

The gift giving is also fun! I love watching the smiles on my friends faces when they open a package prepared special for them! Here are some really cute printable gift tags I found!

I love flowers all year round, but I thought this was a fun, festive and clever way to jazz up your fresh flowers for the holidays! I found this idea at this festive blog called "Deck the Halls".

Giddy Up & Grow is of course in full Holiday swing! The Holiday collection has had great reviews, and I love seeing pictures of your little ones wearing one of my creations! Feel free to post to the Giddy Up & Grow facebook page!

The Holiday collection is only available until December 1st, so don't wait! These make great hostess gifts, birthday gifts and stocking stuffers!

Hope your first few days of November are fantastic!
