The look I get when I’ve treated myself to a stop at the library & found some new goodies 😍 It’s also the same look I get when I go to Target, Sephora, or order Chinese food on a Friday....you know the little things that make me happy. So what’s your happy? .
Someone today didn’t believe me when I told them our small town school really excused family hunting trips. Yes, our brothers got excused from school every November to go hunting opening weekend with our dad. It was totally the norm then, and now we totally laugh about it, and all we can say is...it’s so Midwesty!
The new Midwesty is here! And the spruce green is perfect to pair with your favorite red flannel. I’m looking like a Merry Midwest Girl don’t ya think?!
Double tap if opening weekend was a holiday in your Midwest small town!
Thank you to our beautiful customers for once again, an incredible #blacktuesday ❤️ There are never the right words for after days like today, except grateful. Thank you for loving us and supporting us so well!
My mind is swirling with plans because it’s a super short work week and I have a zillion things to accomplish in this time off. I need to start on a list.
What is going on with you all for this Thanksgiving Weekend ?
I was scrolling through my pictures today to find a picture of my mother-in-law and I as well as my mom since their birthdays are 2 days apart.
While doing that I came across the picture on the left....
June 1, 2017 Yes I’m happy because I’m getting married in a few short months but my god inside I was SO SO unhappy😭, SO tired, SO full of stress and anxiety, SO not confident, my clothes didn’t fit me, I never wanted to go out which couldn’t happen since I had events to attend all summer with bachelorettes, wedding, and my own wedding!! i CRAVED change. The gym didn’t work for me, I lacked support, I was queen of excuses & limiting beliefs. I had tried at home workouts before & gave up BUT THIS time I thought MAYBE if I gave my absolute all things would change & if not I’d get my money back.
Today, I am more full of energy, not feeling lazy all the time, not splurging on DD everyday with unhealthy breakfasts, healthier, building stamina, still eating foods I love (because what’s depriving yourself do?!) growing confidence and love for myself, HAPPIER, and starting to lead a team of my own who also started this journey with me! 💕
Life is scary with the unknown, wanting to plan or wait for signs, being close minded because you failed before. I get it.
But what is worse, is regret. And Megan today is so glad megan back then didn’t pass up the chance to try again.
Always here to chat when you’re ready to jump in 💕
Cheering for you 💫
Made it to THANKSGIVING BREAK without anyone noticing the calendar... do I change it Monday or wait until December? 🙈🦃🎄 PS- this skirt is 50% off! Shop my outfit details with the @LIKEtoKNOWit app or visit http://liketk.it/2ymVN
For an easy and family-friendly dinner skip the canned sauce and make these delicious homemade Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes! Recipe linked @slowcookergourmet
Currently catching up on my DVR and planning Black Friday content for the blog this week. It’s a dangerous job, but someone’s gotta do it. I’m willing to sacrifice my wallet (way too much added to my cart along the way) to scour the best deals so you’ve got a jump start on your holiday shopping. What would you do without me? 😛 Check the blog tomorrow for where I’ll be shopping the best deals online. Also if you’re loving this sweater coat, it’s under $60 from @stlmixandmatch one of my fave local boutiques. .

Thinking about whether I should even bring a gluten free pie to Thanksgiving or if I should just keep it at home for myself since no ones going to eat it anyway 🤣 Is it really Thanksgiving week unless you post something about thankfulness? 🦃 Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday!! When I was little my mom would remind me every night to go over in my head I was thankful for. This is something I still do every single night!
Literally one of the simplest things, but makes a world of difference!

Try Out Tuesday:
What do you do when you get a $25 salon gift card for hitting Diamond at @ultabeauty? You go and get a 60 Minute Customized Facial! Even better? I got an additional (unexpected) 20% off because it was my first service!
What it claims:
🔘 Personalized facials include deep cleansing, exfoliation and intense hydration for visible results. Designed for all skin conditions and customized just for you.
🔘 I began by taking a quick survey regarding my health and skin.
👍🏻 My technician, Colleen, was great! It felt like she asked all of the right questions and had an excellent grasp on the @dermalogica products they use for their services.
👍🏻 The facial itself was amazing and only surpassed by the head massage!
👍🏻 I added extractions to the service for $12 and, while it was mildly painful, I know it’ll be worth it!
This was such a fantastic first experience at The Salon at ULTA Beauty! I will absolutely be going back in the future!
Have you ever been to ULTA’s salon? If yes, what’s your favorite service to get?
Might have found my new favorite breakfast spot this morning.... @lexingtondiner ‘s waffles and home fries were absolutely amazing. I can’t wait to make it back to try the French toast next.😍🤤
Did someone say slumber party? #neutrogenapartner My little sis and I had a girls night and pampered ourselves with @Neutrogena's fun sheet masks! 💫 I wore my favorite Hydro Boost mask and she tried the Deep Clean mask while having a blast watching movies, snacking on popcorn and treating ourselves! These face masks left our skin feeling amazing and were the perfect excuse for some much needed girl time. It was like a mini spa session! Grab these masks for your next slumber party @CVSPharmacy - they're currently on a promotion ❤ Link is in my bio to shop! #NeutrogenaMasks#CVSBeauty
Thankful for this man and the life we have built together. For the endless hours he works with the little amount of sleep he gets. For the laughs he brings and the love my boys have for him. Love you Babe!

I’m so grateful for everything in my life, but the next few days I’m setting aside time to journal about gratitude and admire people, challenges and traditions that make me who I am. If you want to follow along in this gratitude journal challenge click the link in my bio for this week’s journal prompts.
Just a winter Tuesday night, wrapped up in blankets, a little vino, and getting some work done!
It’s been a slightly stressful week with some big decisions & the holidays coming up, but I am still smiling.
Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite weekend of the year! It is filled with old friends, so much family, delicious food, & Christmas decorating!
My heart could burst thinking about it all💕
I’m curious! What is YOUR favorite Thanksgiving or Holiday tradition?!
Who else is excited for Thanksgiving and the long weekend? Hubby’s birthday is on Friday and I couldn’t contain myself and we gave him all of his birthday presents 🙈//.

I saw a caption the other day that said “does anyone else feel like November is going 75 in a school zone?” and I related to that so much. Where did November go? Why am I freezing? At least there’s no snow on the ground— yet! 🍁
I just love this shot. Even though it’s right after Liam face planted in the sand (and he’s been eating his fair share as well). These two are loving the beach 🏖, playing with new friends, & enjoying the Florida sunshine ☀️.
@spring_spa has everything I’ll ever need. I need to get back ASAP for a touch up on my brows and maybe two more massages! If y’all are ever in Canggu or anywhere they have a location go!! They are amazing.
Tell me something you’re thankful for! 🦃 Here we have so much to be thankful for every day! I’m especially thankful for: our sweet cuddly pups, lazy days, Joel’s laugh, and our loving friends and family. (& lint rollers 😂🙈) Joel is thankful for “stability, my wife’s love, and my dogs” ☺️
Quick tip if you’re not wanting to meal prep during a short work week! Head to your grocery store and see what meals they already have packaged up! Often times they’ll have salads, and once in a while they may have warm, healthy meals, too! 🥗 It will definitely save you some time if you have a short week! How do you stay on track during abnormal work weeks? 🤔
Over the 🍏? Over the 🎃? Not a fan of the standard Thanksgiving indulgences? Well I have got just the recipe for you! These Salted Nutella Caramel Sugar Cookies were in my #Thanksgivingroundup dessert post, but if ya missed it you can get the recipe on the blog now in my recent post section. #treatyoselfbeforeyouwreckyoself

Still can’t believe Austin & I decided just 3 days before the weekend to buy tickets to Orlando ✈️ We stayed with one of his buddies from high school, went to the UCF game AND I got to meet up with my boo @shelbydillard 💛 It’s life’s little adventures that make it so exciting 🥰
We’re back in our 30 degree Ohio weather now, and because I’ve been cuddled up for the past 2 days, I did A TON of gift hunting & deal scoping 👀🙌🏻
I put together a complete Nordstrom gift guide for HIM & HER on CaitlinEliza.com tonight ⭐️ I went through Nordstrom’s entire site & selected all my top picks for any guy or girl in your life that you might be shopping for— link in bio 💫✨
