Thanksgiving Sale Favorites 2019

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! It’s been a big week around here … my husband and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary on Tuesday. Also, our 10-year-old daughter is recovering from foot surgery so I feel like I’m taking care of a baby again … a baby who can’t walk or do anything for herself :).

Anyhoo, I am SUPER THANKFUL (see what I did there?) that she is recovering SO WELL! Not to mention, I’ve had PLENTY of time to sit around and pick out my sale favorites :). I’ve shared all of my favs below … including my BIG purchases during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales.

I also have listed several sales going on at the end of this post!

Here are a few more goodies that caught my eye. I have this bed (below) in grey and it is STUNNING. I love the navy velvet too!

I designed my own custom home from the ground up, inside and out. A home that is cozy, comfy, laid out perfectly for the way my family lives, and makes us happy every single day. Oh, and did I mention I did this all without blowing the budget?! 

Yep, it’s true. I’ve been there, done that, and actually lived through it … and you will too. Pinkie promise!
