Last Minute NYE outfit ideas

If you are like me then it's been a steady stream of non-stop fun +family over the holidays.  New Year's Eve hasn't even been a thought for me because we rarely go out on this night (I gave up on getting babysitters on this night a long time ago).  But for those that do get out and need last minute options I'm going to help you out! Even if you stay put at home and have friends over for a casual night - I got options for that as well.  For last minute occasions such as these I rely heavily on Amazon Prime and Nordstrom order online with in-store pickup option.

I love a good halter style cocktail dress!  This dress in black is classic + fun.  Pair this with some strappy heels, fun earrings, a little clutch and you are done. 

This gorgeous satin jumpsuit is available at the Nashville Nordstrom location.  Check on availability at your city's store to make sure they have it in stock!  You can simply order online and pick it up at a designated store pick up area.  I loooove navy for an unexpected twist on the usual black. This also comes in burgundy as well.

I love this strappy sequin camisole that you can pair with velvet leggings or jeans!  This would be a great paired with a classic blazer as well.  

For a more casual NYE look- This slouchy sweater with your Spanx faux leather leggings + fun earrings would be easy and cute!
I love the idea of doing a pajama party for NYE!  These satin short pajamas are so chic and come in 3 different patterns.  Throw on a silk eye mask ala Holly Golightly in Breakfast with Tiffany's for an even more chic look.  Don't forget some comfy + fuzzy slippers!

Dick's Holiday Shopping

We have always loved shopping at Dick's Sporting Goods! It has been a go-to for years for all of our Titans attire and our boy's sporting needs.  We discovered recently that Dick's offers so much more for the whole family and is a great shopping option for anyone on your list year round!

We shopped til we dropped and got everyone in our fam covered!

We are all about some cute workout wear (because it makes you want to workout more right?!).  We have seen so many cute pieces from Carrie Underwood's exclusive to Dick's line called CALIA and have been wanting to try it out.  We both got cute workout tops and pullovers.  This line also has casual wear that includes cardigans and hoodies that are super cute + comfy.

The CALIA by Carrie Underwood collection is amazing!  Amanda snagged the cute peach pullover (pictured above in the bottom right) for herself!

The biggest surprise is that we were both so in love with another workout line that is exclusive to Dick's as well called the DSG line.  This line is super affordable and has everything you need for yourself and also your child.  We both love our sheer leopard long sleeve tank that comes in black and white.  As far as sizing goes for women it runs a tad small, so would size up. The DSG line also has so many great options for kids and their ever growing needs.  We both stocked up on lots of pants and shirts for all the kids.  Amanda found a great puffer jacket for both of her boys.  The cool thing about this brand is that 1% of every purchase goes to the Dick's Sporting Goods Foundation to help save youth sports in our local communities.  Learn more at

How cute is this Quilted Jacket?!

Dick's has everything you need for all the sports.  They also offer free bike assembly when you purchase a bike from them.  A great gift idea for football lover would be the Wilson NFL 100th Anniversary Football.

Dick's offers free in-store assembly on all bikes!

A basketball goal is always a great gift idea for your kids!

There are so many great options for gifting the men in your life!

These Yeti tumblers are a great stocking stuffer and come in fab colors!

Dicks also offers an awesome buy online and pickup at the store one hour later to make shopping super easy!  Also, they offer a price match guarantee and will match the price if you find something cheaper at a different retailer.  We also both signed up for ScoreCard Gold which gives you points for every dollar that you spend.  When you spend $500 in a calendar year you qualify! Be sure to check out Dick's Holiday Shopping Guide to help you with any last-minute gift ideas.

Happy Holiday Shopping!

Gift Guide for the Fitness Guru

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season.  There is still time to do a little holiday shopping, if you wait til the last minute like me!  My "wish list" always includes some fitness items, so I thought I would share those with you.

You all know that I think you should always have a gym bag packed everyday!  I am loving this Black Marble Gym Bag to keep all your workout goodies in.  It also has a ventilated shoe pocket which is a huge bonus.  It is a perfect size + it would work great as an overnight bag.

We purchased a treadmill for our basement last year for a Christmas gift to ourselves.  I have absolutely loved having it as an option to workout at the house.  Sometimes I literally only have 15 minutes to get a workout in.  In that short time, this treadmill allows me to get in a quick run to give myself a little sweat and some sense of accomplishment.  We purchased the NordicTrack T 6.5 Si Treadmill, which I have been happy with.  This treadmill is not a commercial grade Barry's Boot Camp/OrangeTheory treadmill by any means, but for the price I am happy with it.  The company also will come set it up for free.

You can find me in my car rolling around with my "third child" my Gallon Water Bottle with Straw.  This is a great way to get a ton of water in for the day and keep you motivated to finish the daily gallon intake goal. It's a sense of accomplishment when you finish the whole bottle!

I love these Bala Bangle wrist and ankle weights.  They are the most fashionable looking weights that you can wear all throughout the day.  You can also wear them while you are working out to add a little intensity.  They are also great if you sit at a desk or drive like me all day long.  They are super comfy and easy to wear.

I find Christmas a good time to stock up on Lululemon. I have so many different brands of pants I like to wear, but Lulu is by far my favorite.  I have a new obsession with the align pants.  They are the softest and give great coverage.  I look forward to wearing them!  My Camo Align Crops have been my favorite purchase this year.

Capris + Sunnies

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year!
