Hello and welcome to the new Sunny Side Up! Which is pretty much the old Sunny Side Up with some fun new features. ;) I’m so grateful to be here chatting with you all today and done with this website re-design! My assistant/friend Vanessa and I worked around the clock for 3 days straight to get all of my content set up and organized on the new site. Kids were fending for themselves, husbands covered all after school activities and I went way too long without washing my hair. Ha. But it’s done! I so hope you like it. Spend some time on the home page and click around! I’m still adding and tweaking things here and there (please let me know if something isn’t working right!) but you’ll see that there are different sections set up for different things like a section with all of my current and past posts, a section for home sources, a section for all of my organization posts, etc. If you click the button (on the right of the top of the page) labeled SHOP I have a fun shop page set up too! I’ll be updating this often with things I’m loving and I have it broken down in categories (home, organization, fashion and right now.. HOLIDAY!).
Speaking of holiday, my annual holiday planner is ready to download! I designed this planner years ago to help all of us stay organized during the busiest season of the year. A little planning ahead makes a huge difference! Some years I use the entire planner front to back and other years I just use certain pages. It’s so nice to have a set place for all of my lists, party plans, gift ideas, etc. With the blog re-vamp I decided my holiday planner needed a little re-fresh too and I hope you like the green! Mostly I just hope it helps you stay organized so that you can enjoy the holidays. :) You can download my holiday planner HERE by joining my e-mail list. If you’re already on my list just enter your information again (it won’t add you twice) and you’ll get instant access to my printable library. At the moment my printable library only has this one printable in it.. ha. I decided to pause and wash my hair and feed my kids so the rest of my home/organizing printables will be coming soon. ;)
October is flying by and before we blink it will be time to decorate for the holidays! I’m so excited. My husband trains all year to run marathons. Well.. holiday decorating is the marathon I train for all year. You too? BRING IT ON. :) I’ve been checking out all of the good holiday decor popping up on-line and I rounded up fun decor I’m loving below! I’ll be back to all things fall in my next post, but some items (like my beloved cedar garland!) are close to selling out or on major backorder so I wanted to share this early for those of you (who like me) are training too. ;)
First up some favorites from Amazon!
I also added a few Prime Day favorites! I have and love most of these items. My parents gave us the nugget ice maker a few years ago for Christmas and we use it every day. Best gift! Our friends just bought one after using ours and love it too. These sheets are long time favorites and I just ordered the henley for Kenny and the sweatshirt for me. Good deals!
My tree is back in stock this year! It’s honestly the most beautiful tree! It’s also SO easy to assemble. I had it put together and ready to decorate in 10 minutes! I’ve never owned a tree this size that is so easy to put together. And the lights! They are absolutely stunning and have different settings. I know it’s a splurge, but if you are considering it and on the fence I’m telling you that you will LOVE this tree. (It comes in a 7 foot size too.) I linked the ornaments I used last year and honestly I don’t want to change much this year! I could go in a totally different direction (I never really know what I’m doing until I start playing around with decor) but I would also be so happy with this same look because I really loved it last year. Is this making anyone else excited!? I can’t wait to pull my trees out! Speaking of trees.. below are a few other fun options for decorating along with more of my Mcgee favorites!
Ok.. let’s talk garland! These two I’ve shared time and time again. They are my favorites! My beloved faux cedar garland mixed with my favorite eucalyptus garland. The sad news is that my faux cedar garland sold out in the 9 ft and the 6 ft is on major backorder. The happy news is that I’m seeing a lot of similar beautiful options popping up on-line!
These are other beautiful, realistic options I’ve found! The good garland is always the first thing to go and I bet a lot of these options will sell out soon too. If you know you want faux garland this year don’t wait to order it!
Afloral has beautiful options this year too and as I’m writing this they have 20% off of all of their greenery with the code PINE. Woot woot! I love these 3 branch options too.. one of my favorite things to decorate with! This cedar greenery looks identical to mine (a little shorter but less expensive too!).
SO many cute things at Crate & Barrel this year. Many of the items below I bought last year and can’t wait to pull out again!
Pottery Barn’s Christmas selection never disappoints! I honestly narrowed my favorites down although it’s hard to tell. I could have easily made 5 more collages!
Are you excited and feeling the holiday magic by now? Mission accomplished!
Plan ahead and then back to pumpkins we go.
