Find him the perfect gift at the Best Buy gift center #OneBuyForAll #shop #cbias

Each year I start asking my husband for his holiday wish list several months before Christmas. As expected, I always get the same response, "Oh I don't need anything and don't really want anything specific..." And each year he manages to amaze me with his incredibly thoughtful gifts for me on Christmas morning.

“I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Carter’s.

DownEast Basics on Pinterest {Spring 2013}

Brie Brie Blooms, DownEast Basics, Spring 2013

It's no secret that I love DownEast Basics.  The comfort and versatility in their clothes is great for me because I'm always on the run.  Comfort and style are important, but being a frugal mommy makes quality a top priority.  The very first time I shopped there I purchased a short sleeved cardigan and jeans.  They have been through my washing machine hundreds of times and are still in excellent condition.    Last year I wore my cardigan on picture day Read More... {Read More...}

My husband and I both have very different busy schedules.  We try to spend the time we do have together with fun family outings.  Unfortunately that means we rarely have time to tackle shopping for the family together.  The convenience of shopping online is great but I am always nervous about purchasing the wrong sizes.  We all needed new jeans and I am so happy I was able to get our shopping online done with Wrangler!
