One of my absolute favorite spots to shop is Academy Sports + Outdoors. They have the BEST sales. They have outfits that my kids call “Awesome clothes” (literally – this is a true fact. Any kind of sports attire is considered “awesome”.) And their gear makes our busy active life so much more enjoyable. I wanted to show you exactly what we have from there that we are OBSESSED with and also tell you some of the things that are on our wish list this Christmas!
First – in all transparency – I did hit up the 2020 Black Friday sale for a few presents, some warmer clothing and also to score the best deal on a new cooler.
And yes – Ella and I dressed in all black for Black Friday 🙂
ALSO….I got Jeremy a new speaker for baseball. It’s being delivered right to my door so I am hoping I can get to it before he does! I know it’s gonna be exactly what he wanted for Christmas! The prices I paid are pretty incredible and Academy Sports + Outdoor has other big events coming up with amazing prices. I was regretting not picking up one of these little speakers for the boys….they would LOVE it for their room!
And I spied this new color of insulated mug and I’m pretty obsessed. I have been pining over the white one….this might be a contender for a new favorite.
When I got home, I couldn’t wait to break out the new clothes, a new folding chair and the cooler for a little bonfire action. Also – did any other local Georgia people see how it went from balmy shorts weather one day to straight up WINTER the next?! It’s like Mother Nature was late to the party and did one of those magical wardrobe changes instantaneously! It’s crazy!
Good thing we had our favorite Mr Buddy heaters from Academy! No frostbite here, thanks!
Do you have one of these little heaters yet?
A lot of baseball moms I know have them and they are perfect for staying warm if you spend ANY length of time outside.
I know I will get lots of questions about cute clothes…so here are the details. Weston is wearing a Columbia fleece that is PERFECT for outdoors and is such an amazing price. And Will’s Nike hoodie is in our local school colors so he can wear this on repeat to games. Go Red Devils!
I got myself a funnel neck sweatshirt too and I am probably gonna need two more colors…ya know….because IT’S PERFECTION.
Also I got myself some short Magellan waterproof booties and they are the best for tromping into the woods to get more fire sticks.
Jeremy was given a little early birthday present with this new dark green Under Armour hoodie and he will be guaranteed to wear this thing OUT.
This photo should be called – couples who Academy together, stay together 🙂
And how do I like the new cooler? Well in short….it’s everything I ever wanted. The reviews were amazing for this. The price was just right. The capacity is amazing. It’s not hard to open. The color is just what I wanted. If you need a new cooler….in short, this one is AMAZING.
And folks, if you have been feeling a little blah this holiday season….I really encourage you to get some wood, gear up and head outside for a bonfire. Bonfires have been our go-to activity this year. And they have been such a simple way to enjoy each other and spend time together. So now comes the fun part – where I can share exactly what I’ve been spying at Academy and is on our wishlist (or things we already own that we LOVE)….
