Gift Guide for the Dog Lover

I'm so excited to bring you guys today's holiday gift guide. This one is for all of the #dogmoms out there (and #dogdads). My husband and I have a German Shepherd named Emma (who is currently in a time out for pooping inside...again), but just like our other kids, we still love her. We'd also really love it if she'd quit going potty inside, but that is beside the point. The point is there is no shame in spoiling your sweet fur baby, especially during the holidays!! And while some of these gifts are items for your dog, some are great gift ideas for the dog lover in your life too.


The Dogist 2018 Wall Calendar by Elias Weiss Friedman author of The Dogist, for example, is the perfect Christmas gift for someone who loves dogs.



These super cute Christmas Plaid Dog Collars by Mr. Bow Tie Boutique would be the perfect holiday gift for doggies and dog owners alike! Whether you have family holiday photos coming up, or you simply want your furry friend to look festive for those…

The Weekend IT List

Weekend IT List

1. Shop Small. November 30th is Small Business Saturday 2013 - sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this shopping day needn't be overlooked. Take a break from the crazed deal hunting and support your local small businesses. It isn't just about spending (though small business owners will appreciate it), but it's also about boosting the spirits of the local business owners, so even if you're already broke from Black Friday, it's still a great day to head to main street and do some window shopping.

2. Eat Those Leftovers. You want to eat up that turkey soon so you don't risk food contamination. If you have lingering turkey and cranberry sauce, use it up with one of these Thanksgiving leftover recipes. I'm using up my turkey meat and cranberry sauce to make a Thanksgiving Monte Cristo sandwich today. I will definitely take pics for a recipe post.

3. Put Up the Tree. I know a lot of people who have already put up their Christmas decorations, including me. I put a lot of effort into beautiful Christmas decor; I want to enjoy it as long as possible. For inspiration you can check out my Christmas Home Tour from last year, and you can follow along with my Christmas Home Decor pinterest board where you'll find over 100 pins featuring beautiful Christmas decorating ideas.

4. Get Off the Couch. The average American piles on 5 extra pounds every year during the holidays. Yikes! Take some time during Thanksgiving and Christmas to keep your health in check. Pack on the veggies and go for a walk.

5. Catch a Flick. There are several great new movies in theaters right now, like the latest Hunger Games installment. Though I'm most excited to see the new Disney movie Frozen with my daughters. I'm also patiently awaiting the DVD release of Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, for release on December 3rd.
