Frye at Zappos

By Emily, brought to you by Zappos!

This month’s partnership with Zappos is all about FRYE! If you own a pair of Frye boots or shoes you already know this — Fryes are amazing. As soon as you slip a pair on you know that you’re wearing something expertly crafted with comfort in mind. The pillowy foot bed, the thick sole, that leather smell. As we prepared for this post and I was passing along info to both Jenna and Nicole we all said the same thing – “They just feel different than any boot I own.”      ncc_2675

Maybe you’re like us and thought Frye would take a more western approach to all their boot styles,  but this season we are dying over their take on the classic Cheslea boot – the Dara or Clara styles – the over the knee trend and a slip on heeled boot!fryechelsea

I have two distinct memories of Frye boots. First, I remember when I was growing up my mom had a pair of Fryes in this oiled leather and she is a size 8 1/2 and I’ve always been a 7 1/2 and I would steal them anyway. I’d tromp around in these loose beautiful boots and feel like a million bucks. When I saw the same shade on Zappos website I knew I had to have them. jennazapposnov-2-of-6

Then, as a struggling college student, I bought a pair of eggplant purple vintage Frye’s and lived in them! When I was purging my closet, I decided to sell them and did a bidding style listing. I actually made $100 off them! Frye’s hold their value so well it’s such a great investment!! Even better lots are on sale at Zappos right now!

If you’re looking for an amazing gift to give (or for yourself) we are so sold on Frye’s they feel so luxe and with Zappos return policy you can have confidence in making this kind of investment. They have hundreds of options on their site, too! Such a great selection.jennazapposnov-4-of-6Also Frye is such an amazing casual boot, it looks killer with jeans but we all love them styled with dresses and Sunday’s best! Obviously, since we all basically wore the same look – funny how that happens unintentionally. 😉screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-7-25-00-amSo what is your favorite? Shiny leather, lush suede? Tall, short? Classic, western? So many options! We hope everyone gets some Fryes under their tree this year because they’re the best boots we own, by a landslide!ncc_2706

Rammell Thanksgiving

Our Thanksgiving was so much fun this year. We have spent the last three Turkey Day’s in California and it’s such a special time just the five of us. I do love a kitchen full of family and friends but there’s also something super special about spending this holiday together with our little family. And in that case, I didn’t want to cook a ton of food…so we went to our family’s special place, Terranea. Andrew made this darling video I’m excited to share, hope you enjoy!

We are so excited about our church’s #LightTheWorld Holiday campaign. Each year they put out something beautiful for the world to enjoy and connect us closer to the true meaning of Christmas, but THIS year is the best yet. 25 Days, 25 Ways to serve others. That is truly what Christ, what Christmas is about. We will be participating with our families and wanted to share it with you all as well to get started on December 1st. #lighttheworldWe wanted to share a beautiful little DIY to help you kick off Day One: He Lifted Others Burdens. All you need is a wreath, some tags and your helping hands! First, decide who you want to serve, we have our kids pray and meditate and come up with a name. #lighttheworldIt might be a widower, someone who is ill or has lots of small children and needs extra hands. Maybe they’re lonely or disabled or just someone you want to get to know better. Have your kids fill out several tags with service ideas and then tie them to the wreath. #lighttheworldWhoever you choose to gift it to can cash in the service tokens whenever they need! Once its done, you get to deliver the wreath and the recipient can display it and remember each day someone loves them and is ready to serve. #lighttheworldSUPPLIES: Boxwood Wreath // Circle Tags // Red Twine#lighttheworld

Here is the first half of the month so you can plan ahead, too! Get all the details here.
