Happy Birthday, Cattleman!

Today is a day to celebrate one of my favorite people! My boyfriend - Danny - The Cattleman.
Last year you celebrated the big 3-0 in Boston & this year you will be doing so back home, surrounded by family.

Friday Best - 12.8

December is in full swing and it's the Cattleman's birthday weekend! We've got a birthday dinner at Sugar Fire tonight with his family (him and his momma share a birthday). Then tomorrow the birthday boy will be butchering with family for the majority of the day (their homemade sausage is so so good) - After that family "event" wraps up we plan to clean up and hit the town - whatever he requests! Then next week we both have a short work week and fly to Boston for my company holiday party! The whirlwind is in full effect & I love it all! Now on to this week's bests --

Saturday Shopping - Knox & Rose

The knox & rose line is on sale at Target & they always have so many great pieces - I may need to snag some dresses that could double for work + weekends!

Friday Best - 1st of December!

Happy December 1st, folks! There is so much to look forward to & I have certainly caught the holiday spirit! This week kind of flew by & didn't feel very productive - I was out sick a bit Monday & Tuesday, so that kind of threw my week, but now I am back & full of energy to tackle all my tasks. We have the first of our holiday parties to attend this weekend and then my Mom & I are a part of a holiday event in my hometown this weekend. Lots of fun stuff! Anyway, let's start off the bests today with a look at the best plans of the month-- other bests include dinners, finds & cocktails.

Five To Try >> December

Golly, the last month of 2017 is upon us! I'm decking my halls & getting into the holiday spirit in these parts. December is a big month for most and I'm hoping to embrace all the little moments the month has to offer & make time to slow down during the holiday hustle. The cattleman's birthday is a big reason to celebrate this month too!
Now on the the F I V E - Each month I compile a list of five various things I recommend trying -- these include anything from DIYs, book recommendations, sips, recipes, and new restaurants/events for St. Louis locals. You can check out all my previous suggestions too!
So, let's get to it ---

Small Business Saturday

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving full of family, food and cozy vibes. Today I'm prepping for my birthday bonfire and am excited to celebrate a belated 30th with all my favorite people. Here are a few of my favorite small shops to support for Small Business Saturday. I hope you're able to add some local items to your Christmas list this year - I think it always makes for a great touch! Don't forget local coffee shops, breweries and eats too!
