7th House on the Left

Keeping with the theme of our latest makeover project, we have a fun giveaway for you all today! Kid Made Modern is the brainchild of Todd Oldham, a super talented interior/fashion designer that I’ve been a fan of for a long time. The collection is filled with fun, colorful craft supplies and books. Even though the brand is called KID Made Modern, I’ve been known to purchase more than a few things from this line in the past. So, even if you don’t have little ones, it’s safe to say you’ll still love what we’re giving away today. One lucky reader will win a $100 Target gift card and a special Kid Made Modern Gift Bag that includes everything you see in the photo above plus a few extras.

Today we have a fun giveaway coming to you from Dana, an independent consultant for Scentsy. I first became aware of Scentsy when I was given one as a gift. I’m an avid candle lover, so I wasn’t too sure if I would warm up to the idea of a “flameless candle”. The specially formulated wax Scentsy Bars with the heat of a low-watt light bulb and fills the room with fragrance, just like a candle would. It’s safer than a traditional candle (no flame), there are tons of scent options to choose from, and you can switch the scents out without having to buy a whole new candle. Sure, if you’re a die hard candle-lover like I, it won’t replace the ambiance of a real candle, but it’s a perfect thing to have on all day to get the fragrant aroma of one (we have one in our laundry room that we keep on pretty much all day every day). In other words, we’re fans. Psst… find out how everyone can get a special 7th House discount near the end of the post.

So, yesterday. It finally happened. I had all four wisdom teeth pulled. I mentioned in this post that this was going down the week before Thanksgiving, but because we had to go out of town at the last minute, we had to postpone it to yesterday. It wasn’t that bad. Uncomfortable, sure, but not as bad as my head (and unneeded Google searches) tried to tell me it would be. Though I’m in pain and my face is swelling (fun stuff right there, folks), I’m so glad it’s over and behind me. On that note, on to the fun things…

Happy Weekend // 7thhouseontheleft.com

Later today, my little brother flies in from LA. Swollen face or not, I’m so excited to meet him at the airport and hug him really, really tight. Greg and I are so happy to have him home for a week or so before our entire family head to Florida for Christmas. He and Greg are having a boy’s night out tonight and going to the John Mayer concert here in Richmond. 6th row. Backstage access. So. Jealous. Okay, nah, not really. I have my dad babysitting me with pain meds and Downton Abby Season 3. Yep, he’s a good dad.

If you follow us on Instagram, you might have seen a few photos from my and Greg’s annual “Christmas Movie Night for Two” last night. Every year, we normally do this on Black Friday, but, again, since we ended up being out of town, we decided to push it back a bit.

Christmas Movie Night for Two // #mykindofholiday // 7thhouseontheleft.com

Our “Christmas Movie Night for Two” always consists of pajamas, all the lights off except for the Christmas lights, cozy quilts, all phones on “Do Not Disturb Mode”, our favorite Christmas-themed treats, popcorn and a few Christmas movies. This year, we watched Arthur Christmas (which, in our opinion, is the most underrated animated holiday film ever) and Holiday Inn (a pure classic). Our movie nights are always one of my favorite kinds of date nights but our “Christmas Movie Night for Two” is extra special and has always been our way of kicking off the Christmas season. That, and it gives us an excuse to eat popcorn and peanut butter M&Ms at the same time. Best. Combo. Ever.

To make this weekend extra special, our pals at Target are giving one of you guys a $25 gift card so you can have your own Christmas movie night and maybe even give the new Target Ticket a whirl. You can enter with the widget below or post a photo on Instagram of your favorite holiday activity using the hashtag #mykindofholiday and tagging us in the description so we’ll be sure to see it (@7thhouseblog). This is a special weekend “Flash Giveaway”, so it will run over the weekend and close Monday evening. Happy weekend and good luck, everyone!
