It’s time — Halloween is barely over, but all my focus is already on the upcoming winter season. The holidays really are the best time to be a kid, so that’s what we’re celebrating in collaboration with Gymboree this week!
This is our second year celebrating Thanksgiving as a family of three, and now that Arya is a toddler I’m excited to start some real holiday traditions. Aside from testing out vegetarian friendly recipes (more on that soon!), I’m also thinking about fun activities to do on the two extra days that we’ll have off together. Because that’s really the best thing about this time of year — soaking up fun days with family!
Arya LOVES to be outdoors but it can get a little tricky when the weather turns cold, rainy, and eventually snow-covered. To make sure she still gets to enjoy her playground days, I snagged these navy and pink Duck Boots from the winter collection at Gymboree! They’re water-proof, cozy on the inside, and still light enough for Arya to run around in. They remind me so much of the Sorel boots I got last year! I wore mine almost every single rainy or snowy day, so these are going to be in heavy rotation for her as well. I also got her this Faux Fur Jacket — Arya loves saying “soooooooft”, every time she puts it on lol
What holiday traditions are we doing this Thanksgiving? We’re going to spend the morning on the playground in our boots & comfy PJs, let Arya try her hand at baking these mini pies, and then settle in for a family Disney movie marathon after dinner. And instead of hitting the black friday sales in person, I’ll do most of my shopping online so that we can use the weekend for adventure. Though a few more Gymboree goodies are on my list. I’m going to grab this Fair Isle Skirt, these Furry Boots, and this Faux Fur Scarf. Don’t wanna wait? Check out the new winter collection here — it’s all 40% off for a limited time! Enjoy 🙂
