A few weeks ago, it dawned on me that we didn’t have any professional family pictures. With Christmas coming up and needing to make cards, I scheduled a session.
Then, I realized a week before the pictures that none of us had anything to wear special for the pictures. But, I set out to fix that!
I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
For the girls, I knew that I wanted to get them something cute and new. I hoped that would make them more agreeable to family pictures. What I didn’t plan for was the temperature to be in the upper-30s, low-40s! Brrrrrrr. I picked out some fun, colorful and trendy tunics and leggings for the oldest two, some velvet leggings and heart top for E and some little baby jeans and stripped top for B all from Osh Kosh B’Gosh! I used the 25% off coupon (below) and got all of this for a little less than $100 when I shopped on Veteran’s Day.
As most moms know, these clothes will definitely be passed down to the girls as they get bigger. We like to make our clothes and money last and that’s one way we do. Thankfully, Osh Kosh B’Gosh clothing is super durable and long lasting!
Even though we were super cold, and maybe shivery, I think we got a pretty sweet Mommy and Me Monday shot!
Poor B was so very cold, the hat had to stay on her head and she was bundled up in her sister’s jacket for most of the pictures. I had to make sure to get one of her happy and warm in her cute pink stripes!
I’ll definitely be headed back to scoop up some matching Christmas jammies because the cute is just too much to stand!
We make it a point to give and give happy year round. But, during the holidays, it’s easy to #GIVEHAPPY especially to our families. You can be sure they will be receiving their own copies of our family pictures to display in their homes. Pictures, don’t cost a lot and they really brighten our families’ days! In fact, even the smallest acts of kindness can help brighten someone’s day!
Have you ever been at the store and had an extra coupon you weren’t using that somebody else could? I would much rather a coupon get used then toss it in the trash and it always makes people happy to save extra money! Make sure you print out this coupon or use the code online to save 25%!
What are some ways you’re planning to #GIVEHAPPY this holiday season?
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.*
