valentine's day gift guide (the one we give our husbands)

Ladies, it’s February, and you know what THAT means….it’s time to pick out our own Valentine’s gifts, and let our husbands think it was their idea. And, guess what? This year, you can just HELPFULLY send your significant others this graphic. It’s very professional (ish) and will trick them into thinking they’re in a business meeting. With their boss, i.e. YOU. He will enjoy your carefully thought out list, and will NOT roll his eyes at you. Or say things like, “really, Sherri, AGAIN?” Or “don’t you think I know what you like after 15 years of marriage.”

7 wardrobe transition staples

The holiday’s are over, and you know what that means: it’s spring now.

JK, but the struggle is real when transitioning your wardrobe to a new season. Like, for example, when your VERY RUDE husband refuses to acknowledge the arrival of a new season by welcoming it with all new clothes. Or when the weather insists on being 80 degrees the very first day of February. (That was really only tough on the people who had to see my “winter white” legs, but Pinterest tells me that winter white is on-trend. So we’re fine.)

the bedding solution you need in your life. like, now.

For at least 5 minutes every January, I resolve to keep my house clean and organized. Then I remember my actual personality, and that flies out the window. Usually around January 17th.

Until then, I’m going to pretend that I am a neat and tidy person. And for me, the one thing that always makes me feel organized in the midst of chaos, is making my bed. I’ve been trying to instill this ONE good habit of mine in AG and Bo, as opposed to the other habits that generally involve too much tv, too much sugar, and too much time spent at Nordstrom.

Anyway, this bed-making thing has NOT been going well. Mainly because I made the rookie mom mistake of giving them beds that are absolutely adorable and absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to make. (For children and maybe also for their 38 year old mothers. Ahem.)

Sherri's Post-Holiday Sale Roundup: HURRY UP THEY'RE ENDING Edition

It's cold, rainy, and gross outside today, so I say let's blame EVERYTHING on the weather. Like how we are sitting around in our pjs watching Home Alone 2 for the 17th time since Christmas. Or how we JUST HAVE TO peruse the insanely good post-holiday sales online. Maybe even how the drop in barometric pressure caused me to trip and fall onto the "purchase" button and buy everything in my Shopbop cart. #sherrilogic #whoops

So apologies if this post is all over the place, but  I wanted to share the goodness in case you, too, wanted to blame your spending habits on the weather. It may also have something to do with a 4 year old who likes to sneak up behind me and scream. Which results in shrieking, dropping my laptop, and actively trying not to have a heart attack.. #schoolbreakisfun

Now that I’ve recovered from Bo’s attempt to kill me, I bring you…

The Sales You Should Hit Today, You Know, Because of the Weather. *Wink:

tradition-ing

One of my absolute favorite Christmas traditions is, oh, um, ALL OF THEM (besides crying baby Santa photos, which is the GOAT, duh). I love creating new traditions as well, although it doesn’t always work out. For example, John didn’t really go for the “Traditional Maxing Out of the Nordstrom Card” this year.

And the whole “Getting Yourself Treats and Pretending They’re From Your Husband” didn’t really go over well either, tbh.

amazon and appendicitis

Well, sometimes you plan to have all kinds of great holiday content pre-planned and ready to go the moment Black Friday hits. You just KNOW you’ll be super organized and on top of it, JUST LIKE ALWAYS AND WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING LIKE THAT?

#rude #butalsoaccurate

My goal was to plan content for the entire month of December, well in advance. And by “well in advance,” I mean November 29th, because apparently I DO NOT understand my actual personality or my organizational capabilities.

But, as The People Who Make Up Cheesy Quotes once said, Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. And I’d just like to rephrase that in a way that feels more authentic:

Appendicitis is what happens WHEN YOU’RE BUSY MAKING PLANS. x

RATMJ approved black friday deals

Y’all. THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE ALL BEEN TRAINING FOR. And pushing & shoving for Black Friday deals is so 2003, guys. Light a fire, throw on that Snuggie, and get your holiday shopping DONE like the shopaholic, I mean, BOSS that you are.

I’ve scoured the internet for the BEST Black Friday deals around. These are my personal favorites, as you may notice by the fact that I’m wearing two of them in the photo above (hi sherpa jacket and white boots!). You know what’s really fun? To watch them go WAY on sale AFTER YOU BUY THEM AND WEAR THEM ALL OVER THE PLACE.

Don’t be like me.
