Just over here waiting on a text from my mom asking me why Colt doesn’t have any socks or shoes on in this pic. 🤣🙈🤷🏼‍♀️ Can’t win em all, right mamas?? Hope you all have a blessed Sunday! ❤️ http://liketk.it/2yIPR @liketoknow.it #liketkit #LTKfamily #LTKkids #LTKshoecrush #LTKunder50 #LTKstyletip

Happy Friday, friends! You guys had me ROLLING yesterday with your responses to my ugg dilemma (see Chauncey Chats in my highlights if you missed it). 😂🙈 Would you believe me if I told you that these are the same pair of uggs that I have had SINCE I was 14? You read that right, 14! I have had them for over a decade and they have not a single blemish on them. They come in several colors and styles- screenshot to shop on the @liketoknow.it app or visit my ‘Shop My Instagram’ page on the blog to shop this cozy look here! ❤️🎄 http://liketk.it/2yGoZ #liketkit #LTKholidaystyle #LTKholidaywishlist #LTKholidaygiftguide #LTKshoecrush #LTKstyletip
I’m not going to lie, I have never been a last minute Christmas shopper. By the first week of December, I usually have all of my presents purchased and the majority of them are already wrapped and under our tree. This year, I visited my local @cvspharmacy for my Christmas shopping needs. So many of my friends and family are looking for solutions to practice proactive wellness, and CVS Pharmacy has the perfect gift essentials for everyone on my list – and yours! I especially love the Nature’s Truth diffuser and essential oils! 😉🎄 #Ad #DiscoverCVS   #SickCareToSelfCare
Excited to give my mama something different this year! #Ad Give the entertainer in your life the unique gift of the Prologue Luna Recycled Handblown Entertaining Set from @libbey , which is available on Amazon. This is something that will last, and also has a story behind it. ❤️ What is something you like to give your parents for Christmas? #CelebrateThis #GiftingLibbey
I remember this time 2 years ago, like it was yesterday. I was close to halfway through my third pregnancy, sick as a dog almost daily, and just thinking to myself how it would all be worth it in the end, and telling myself to finish this pregnancy strong. I was right. You were 1,000% worth it baby girl! #BlairCameron http://liketk.it/2yCeC @liketoknow.it #liketkit #LTKholidaystyle #LTKfamily #LTKkids #LTKstyletip
Happy Monday! Let’s make it a PRODUCTIVE one 🙌🏻✅ PSA- @walmart has some great workout gear + apparel right meow. Literally, everything I’m wearing today is from Walmart! 🙌🏻Screenshot this pic and shop via @liketoknow.it app or just click the ‘Shop My Instagram’ page on the blog! http://liketk.it/2yz3A #liketkit #walmartfinds #LTKfit #LTKunder50 #LTKstyletip
Happy Sunday, friends! Using this relaxing afternoon to accomplish some major wrapping goals, even though I am officially the world’s worst gift wrapper. 🙈 I always say don’t judge a gift by its wrapping, but by its gesture. Giving gifts from @healthyhumanlife says, “Hey man/woman, I care about your water drinking habits.” 😊🤣 Of course, you can put far more than just water in these bad boys, and that’s what makes them such an easy gift to give to anyone. 🎁🎄 Use my code CHOLLI10 for a discount (it’s good until 12.31.18). 🙌🏻 http://liketk.it/2ywY9 @liketoknow.it #liketkit
Mom and Dad got a date night ❤️🎄 http://liketk.it/2yAkg @liketoknow.it #liketkit
We are totally in the Christmas spirit around here! One thing that I struggled with internally when I first had kids was deciding how much to spend on them for Christmas. I mean, I want them to feel loved on Christmas morning, but where do you draw the line? Ya feel? So, Tyler and I decided years ago to adopt the ‘Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh’ gift giving technique. We get our children three gifts. Gold represents the big gift. The one we spend a little more money on. Myrrh is something they will wear (clothes, perfume, shoes, jewelry, etc). And Frankincense is something that brings them closer to God or something with biblical meaning (a new bible, a pretend ark with animals, a bible story book, Children’s Christian song cd). We do this because it helps keep their minds (and hearts) engaged with the fact that this special day is not about us, but about the birth of our Savior. ❤️ I think Christmas is so important for us as parents to use this time to witness to our children. You can never start too early. 😊 Just some really transparent thoughts I had on this Friday. ❤️🎄 http://liketk.it/2yyVb @liketoknow.it #liketkit

Anybody get stressed out during the holidays? With all of the office parties, get-togethers and dinners, kids school parties and events, Christmas shopping and gift wrapping, decorating your home, trying to stay on a budget, trying to spend time as much time with loved ones as we can, oh, and doing all of this while trying to keep our mental sanity and overall health in check? 🙈🤷🏼‍♀️ I have been loving my @hadleydesigns Weekly and Daily Planner Pads! They help me stay so organized, especially this time of year when all the crazy is happening around me. I shared last week a great DIY gift idea using these pads (saved in highlights under “affordable gift ideas”) and I think they would be a great teacher gift or a gift to give that friend or family member who likes to stay organized. Be sure to go check out @hadleydesigns and support this awesome small business when wrapping up your shopping. ❤️#hadleydesigns #sponsored
