Holiday Gift Guide for HER // I Adore What I Love Blog // #iadorewhatiloveIt recently dawned on me that I haven’t posted a gift guide for the women in your life! Not sure why I’ve waited so long on this considering Hanukkah is now over {wahh wahh} but for those of you who celebrate Christmas and are still looking for something to celebrate the special ladies that you know and love, look no further, I’ve got some pretty great suggestions for ya. The price-ranges on the items vary and they work for all types of women – your mama, grandma, aunts, cousins, co-workers, teachers, old friends, new friends, girlfriends, wives, etc. And just a little hint to those of my family and friends who I do a holiday exchange with, I’m OBSESSED with all of these finds, yet own none of them {yet!!! hahaha}. Click on the links below to start gifting!!

My two crazy toddler boys, Brody {who’s 4} and Levi {who’s 2} are my whole entire world and while being their mom is the BEST thing ever, it ain’t always easy! The chaos is real and because I adore mom life SO MUCH, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Would you?? I created this space for all the moms out there who are just trying to get by... I want to help make your lives a little easier, one blog post at a time!

    • WEEKEND VIBES 👨‍🚒🔥🍩☕️🥳 I cannot believe we made it to Saturday!!! To say that this past week was a doozy was an understatement {hence the being so absent on Instastories thing - that ends today!!!} 🤩 BUT looking at the positive, I took a bunch of @onepeloton classes 🚴🏻‍♀️, made dinner most nights for the fambam 🥩, and even got a little {slash a lot} of #nsale shopping in 🛍!!!!
Who wants me to show you my #nordstromanniversaysale purchases on the blog??? If you do, let me know below! ⤵️

Link in bio to read the post 🔗 {You'll also get to see really yummy glutinous foodie pics + @harfster and I being Italian chefs and making our own pasta!!! 😋}
Most of you know that I have Celiac and when my husband and I were in Italy this past April, so many of you wrote me and told me that's it's most likely ok to eat gluten while there. I didn't believe it at first but wellllll, I did it. The pic above?? One sandwich was for my hubby and the other, for me!!! 🥳 STILL FREAKING OUT ABOUT IT. My full story is on the blog!! I hope you'll check it out!!

I woke up today feeling totally blahh and unfortunately, not totally myself. Jumping back to my regular scheduled routine of eating in moderation + spinning on my @onepeloton while #MrLeviTanner naps. Anyone with a #peloton want to follow each other for motivation?? My name on their platform is the same as on insta - @danaivy 👊🏼
I found if I schedule my workouts in my calendar, than I actually do them 🗓  #workouttip This week, I'm planning on hopping on today, tomorrow, Thursday and Saturday.

    • SERIOUS QUESTION {kinda 😂}: How does everyone get such cute family pics?? 🇺🇸 Had THE BEST day yesterday on the 4th but came home and realized that not only did we not get a cute family pic, but we just didn't even take a family pic altogether... Like, we completely forgot!!! 😭 Good thing for this random photo that Levi and I took above! 💁🏻‍♀️
I guess that means we were having too much fun?? ❤️💙 Anyways, it's become our tradition to watch our town parade with our same friends every year {more on my stories!} And then we host a BBQ with my brother's fam and always make wayyyyy more food than necessary 🤷🏻‍♀️
👉🏼 How was your holiday celebrating America's bday? Do you have any 4th traditions?? Let me know! ⤵️
    • LITTLE HIPSTER 🤘🏼 This summer, #MrLeviTanner started taking a hip hop class at @get_rootz!!! This is the first class we've taken there and I signed him up without any friends because I wanted him to try a class somewhere new!! 🥰 BEST IDEA EVERRRR. If you don't know what Rootz is, I have a new blog post up all about it + our experience there as a new family!! #linkinbio 🔗
PSA: also sharing a discount code for you to use for fall registration! 🙌🏼 Let's just say this is a must read, especially if you're local!
👉🏼 Please tag your North Shore friends who have kids ages 0-18!!!! 😘 And if your not local, tell me about the kind of kids classes your kids are taking and LOVE ⤵️
