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…

Our New Favorite Main Street


One of the first places Ken and I checked out after moving to our new home, in addition to the Dallas Museum of Art, was historic downtown McKinney, Texas. I hadn't seen an old main street this charming since I had lived in Maryland. Granted we had the Rose District and a few great places in Tulsa to do our weekend window shopping, but the stores were a bit limited.

The main street downtown McKinney is so large that I think we only covered a portion of it this day. Our favorite shop was by far this adorable little store called Plum Creek Primitives. There were so many cute holiday items in there, as well as a lot of unique home decor.





The McKinney Performing Arts Center didn't seem to have any upcoming events that Ken and I would be interested in, but it was still a fun building to explore. We had to go in because I needed to use the bathroom, as usual, but we wound up looking around and discovered a really cool art exhibit.

With shops like Mom & Popcorn candy shop, countless home decor shops, and a very authentic looking cajun restaurant; Ken and I will definitely be going back! Most of the building had red brick exterior, and over-sized flower pots lined every sidewalk corner. And for some reason, there were a lot of adorable frog statues scattered outside various shops.




We look forward to exploring the rest of the shops, restaurants, a farmer's market, and boutique hotels. There are also walking tours of a little village comprised of several historic homes called Chestnut Square.

Well, as for tomorrow, Ken has off and we are going to enroll the kiddos in their new schools here and take care of some other errands before we start our weekend. I hope you all have a lovely and relaxing weekend!
