Show & Tell Tuesday: Want, Need, Wear, & Read

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

I am so excited about the prompt for today's Show and Tell Tuesday! I think want, need, wear, read is such a great concept and it will be so fun to look at what people have chosen. I thought I'd share for every member of our family! :)

Want: I mentioned a while back, but I am interested in growing my collection of silver frames. Right now the ones I have hold two of my favorite photos from the day Beau was born, and his 3D sonogram. I'd love to get a few more to be able to do the same thing for new baby!

Need: A few weeks ago I dropped and shattered one of my favorite pantry containers, spilling chocolate chips everywhere. I would love to replace it!

Wear: I've head this simple tunic is great for pregnancy even though it's not maternity. They suggest sizing down, but as an expecting mama I'd probably stick to my normal size!

Read: This is kind of cheating because I already downloaded this book on my kindle app for my trip next week but I'm so excited for a festive read!

Want: Ben's wishlist this year has several cigar related items.. sigh! Haha!

Need: This is a little creative for a NEED.. but our apple tv has been acting up lately, which makes sense because Ben got it in like 2010, but we've considered replacing it with an Amazon fire stick, a cheaper option.

Wear: An easy pullover like this is a no-brainer male gift.. any man would look great in one and end up reaching for it often!

Read: I got Ben Chip Gaines's new book, and it would make a great gift for so many men in your life!

Want: This is kind of a borderline want and need, but it's something I want him to have so does that count.. haha? We're planning on moving Beau out of his crib in the new year and so I'll be using some sort of railing like this.

Need: This cooling bowl would totally change my life when it comes to morning oatmeal for Beau! He loves oatmeal, but if I don't remember to prepare it a good bit before he wants it I'll skip that option entirely.

Wear: This simple sweater is too cute.

Read: This big brother book is so classic and sweet.

Want: I really regret not getting a bow swaddle for Beau, because I could have had the caption on a photo "all tied up with a Beau"!!! Plus I just think they are really really sweet. But Ben veto-ed for a boy, and said that this time my caption can be "all tied up with a [name]" Cue the eye roll!!

Need: Another item that I didn't get for Beau but honestly needed is a Milk Snob. It's a nursing cover, carseat cover, highchair cover, grocery cart cover... to be honest I almost bought one for Beau a few months ago because the grocery cart cover we got was lame. And there were so many times I wished I had a carseat cover. This time this is a non negotiable for us, and I love the gray stripe!

Wear: I fell in love with several things while looking for one to choose for this. Shopping is about to be a major problem as I fall in love with things for our sweet girl. A little pea coat, and a fur collar sweater for next Christmas both caught my eye... but ultimately just a simple ruffle blush onesie won out because it's just something that's so specific for a little girl!

Read: We actually already have this book, it was a sweet gift for Beau, but it's going to live in Little Sister's room now and I am so excited about it! :) It'd be the cutest little token for a baby girl in your life.. a friend's baby or something like that. I'd love to give it to someone who didn't expect anything from me as just a little sweet surprise!

I'm so excited to announce that Sarah and I are hosting are The Most Wonderful Time of the Year linkup for the second year in a row! This year we're adding a twist.. there will be a co-host for almost all of the days! We're so excited for that fun element and to share this with some sweet friends! I'm so excited to share my posts with y'all, and to read all of yours! Last year I really tried to comment on as many posts as possible, and it's my goal for this year as well. Please join in with us, and we'd love for you to help us spread the word of the linkup.

  1. That little ruffled onesie is just about the cutest thing ever!!

    1. I adorable! Where were these when my twin grands were born?

  2. We have the Amazon Fire Box and we LOVE it. I'm not sure what the real difference is between the box and the stick, but I definitely recommend giving it a try. We found that more of our favorite shoes and apps were compatible with the Amazon product than with Apple TV and if you already have a Prime membership, you can download tons of free content AND purchase shows and movies directly from the remote control!

  3. Love the idea of silver frames - so classic!

  4. We LOVE LOVE LOVE our Milk Snob! Being in Southeast Texas, we actually use it as a lightweight blanket most of the time and Little Girl loves it! Since our little one is older, we’ve just started using it as a cart/high chair cover and it is great. I highly recommend them!

  5. That onesie is so cute, as are the two books you picked out for the kids. I love gifting books to children!! :)


  6. I'm almost done with Winter Street and loving it! Hope you enjoy it too!

  7. So sweet-I love the bow swaddle blanket, that would make a sweet shower present for my friend who is expecting a baby girl! Do you have a specific shop you're planning on purchasing one from?

    xoxo, SS

    Southern and Style

  8. I love that cooling bowl! When I fix oatmeal for my nanny kiddos I throw in some frozen blueberries to help cool it down!
