Thanksgiving Recap (Arkansas edition) + epic Black Friday Roundup

I’m giving away two $500 Amazon gift cards today to celebrate Black Friday – be sure to follow me on IG for the details!

Hi friends! How are you? I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving! We’re here in Arkansas with the Pilot’s mom, sis, and our niece and nephew. It’s our first time spending Thanksgiving out here in years, and it’s such a treat to have some time together. The girls were so excited to make a trip out here and are blown away by the trees and greenery. It’s a stark contrast from our lovely brown and cactus-filled Tucson desert.

The Pilot was visiting his dad this week, who lives in Atlanta, so the girls and I flew out super early Thanksgiving morning and he flew from Atlanta to meet us in Little Rock. We rented a super cute lake house for the long weekend and are looking forward to movies, hikes, and exploring.

Well, we all know what today is for:

SHOPPING.

I LOVE Black Friday. I have fond memories of shopping with with mom and nana growing up. We’d wake up when it was still dark and head to the stores as they opened. Even though I enjoy the frantic energy and chaos (in a weird way), here’s something I enjoy even more:

eating a piece of cold leftover pie, drinking coffee, and ordering everything online in my pajamas. Technology is a gift, I tell ya.

I was able to scour some of the sales early, and I created this list of the best things I’ve found!! I know every blogger and creator in the land is sharing their affiliate links today, so I just wanted to say thank you to those of you who choose to shop through my links. You’re directly supporting our family and the work I do here on the blog, and I hope you know how much I appreciate it.

Now, onto the good stuff!

Amazon finds:

My beloved walking pad. I use this every single day and love it to get in extra steps during the work day.

Theragun for 33% off. Perfect for those sore muscles!

Peloton bike! This is the best price I’ve seen.

Amazing price on the new iPad. This was Liv’s only Christmas request (along with skincare and makeup).

One of the most hyped up gifts of the season! I think the kids would go crazy for this.

An Instant Pot at almost half off. I use ours at least once per day.

The best blender in all the land.

A cute mini skincare fridge.

A packable puffer jacket, which is water resistant and comes in so many colors.

If you have a PS5 on your kids’ (or husband’s) list, this is an awesome bundle.

Sakara: You can still use my link and code XOGINAH for 25% off at Sakara. This is the best time to try their meal delivery! The meals are fresh, vibrant, beautiful and made with organic ingredients.

Some more of my favorite things:

Erin Condren. This is the planner I order every year on Black Friday for the following year. I’m going on 7 or 8 years now (maybe longer??) and it helps me keep my life together (for the most part lol). Paper planners for life. I also order personalized stationery for myself and the girls, mailing return labels, and notecards.

Hanna Andersson. This is where we get our holiday PJs every year aaaand they’re 50% off right now.

Our Place. We switched over to nontoxic cookware years ago, and Our Place continues to be one of my go-tos. The pan is used every single day and I also love the pot. They’re also beautiful!

Spanx set. If you don’t own this Spanx set yet, it 100% lives up to the hype. It’s the softest dreamiest fabric and I’m thisclose to ordering another set. They have dupes on Amazon, but from what I’ve heard, it’s worth the splurge because it’s more tailored and structured. I wore it all day yesterday – on the plane and then for our feast! – and was comfy all day. Top is here and bottoms are here. 

J crew: 50% off almost everything. Love this classic cable knit sweater, this everyday turtleneck, and these ballerina flats.

gap: When I’m writing this post, it’s 40% off everything, but I’m thinking it will jump to 50% today… I ordered some of the cutest stuff for P recently including this ruffle sweatshirt, velvet t-shirt, pleated corduroy skirt, polka dot tee, and floral dress.

Madewell: this is one of my go-tos for staples and denim.

Anthropologie: 30% off! Give me all the Somerset dresses.

Are you shopping today and Monday??

What’s on your list this year?
