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

The Weekend IT List

Is it bad that 4 out of 5 things on this week's list involve food? Ah, who cares? It's freezing here, and after a quick trip to the store to get munchies and some movies, I plan to hunker down all weekend. It's the perfect time to enjoy some hot cocoa and do some baking. Have a lovely weekend!

1. Winter Sales - It's a great time to get some winter coats and boots on sale. Pictured above: Kensie coat

2. Homemade Hot Cocoa - When it's freezing outside, there is nothing better than hot cocoa. Try making some from scratch with warm milk and chocolate chips. Add in other flavors like cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice or caramel sauce. Pictured above: Hot Caramel Chocolate - midwestliving.com

3. Settle in for some flicks and try making your popcorn the old-fashioned way to avoid all the yucky chemicals that come with microwave popcorn. I've been popping mine over the stove with olive oil and salt for years and I love it!! Pictured above: How to Make Perfect Popcorn without a Microwave - bonappetit.com

4. Make Something Sweet - At my house, especially on a chilly weekend, it's pretty much required that we have something sweet whether it's homemade french toast or a fresh-baked pie. If you plan to be inside this weekend, try some homemade bread and jam or homemade applesauce. Pictured above: Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce - lifesambrosia.com

5. Ina Garten's New Show - Don't miss Ina Garten's - The Barefot Contessa's new Food Network show featuring celebrations, premiering this Sunday, Jan. 26th. Pictured above: Random House Barefoot in Paris: Easy French Food

Enjoy your weekend!
