Gift Guide: For Him

Gift Guide: For Him


Nothing like waiting until the last minute to post a Gift Guide for the guys. But since there are 4 more shopping days until Christmas, here are a few ideas (some of which my husband might just find under the tree). Many of them are still available for Christmas shipping (or available at Nordstrom and Macy's if there's one close by!).

Holiday Firsts with Pyrex


JR and I moved into our first home almost exactly one year ago. It has been a year filled with many firsts: our first moments as husband and wife, our first real vacation just the two of us, and our first holidays spent creating our own traditions. Although we were technically in this house over Christmas last year, we were still getting settled and pulling our home together. So this year definitely feels special to be celebrating our first Christmas as husband and wife in a home that we've made ours.

Many of the traditions that we are creating, as well as the traditions that our families hold, center around food. It has been so fun for me to begin to contribute to the family meals, rather than just show up and let the "adults" cook. This past Thanksgiving was the first where I had specific items to bring along to each family meal (both JR's and mine). I'm excited to do the same for Christmas. Cooking and sharing and traveling has been made easier for me (as a first-timer) with Pyrex.

Gift Guide: For Her

Gift Guide: For Her


Happy December, everyone! I feel like I have been saying this every month, but I can't believe how quickly this year has flown. For so long, I was always working toward the next thing. First it was college, then it was an internship, then getting a first job, then back to grad school, then another internship, then a sales rotation, then a full time position, then eventually a wedding. Now that we are finally settling into our home and marriage and jobs, I think the time will just continue to fly. But it's exciting! And now it's the holiday season, which I absolutely love.
