Vacation prep and dreaming of warm weather

After only our first snow fall of the season, I'm over it. Who is with me! The blog has been slow as my family passed illnesses back and forth, then back and forth again. What is keeping me motiviated these days is the fact that we have two vacations to look forward to - and both are to warmer locations!

First, in February we are heading to Disney. Should be about 70 degrees so we are looking forward to a break from the cold weather! The VRBO we are staying at also has an indoor pool attached to the house, along with a club house with an outdoor pool. We will be spending two days in the parks as well.

Time to return sweaters from your mom and get what you really want at the Nordstrom semi-annual sale!
Our favorite sale items are listed below.
By using our commission links you help fund our coffee addictions. 

1. The Leith dress is a favorite of ours! Looks flattering on everyone and at 60% off how can you resist!  Grey and Magenta are still in stock.
2. I love olive green everything (I can't help it, I look good in green) and have been seeing moto leggings everywhere so I'm grabbing a pair of the 40% off BP Washed Moto Leggings.

Top 10 Kohls Black Friday Deals 2018

Kohls Black Friday sale went live on November 19th and we have compiled our list of the top 10 deals they are offering for 2018.

What is new this year is that Kohls is limiting their coupon power. In the past, some brands were excluded, but this year the exclusion expands to toys as well.

The deals posted run through Friday November 23rd. We focused on online deals, as some deals offered by Kohls you can only snag in store starting at 5pm on Thanksgiving day. Shopping in store on Thanksgiving is not how we roll and if you must shop I encourage you to stick to online! Doorbusters go live Thursday, Nov. 22nd at 12:01 am (CT). Online earn 15% (see code on website) off applicable items and you will also earn $15 in Kohls Cash for every $50 spent (vs. the typical earning $10). Don't forget, you earn rewards and towards Kohls cash for items even that are excluded from any additional coupons.
