Just a few of my most favorite things from November!

Green Bay Trip Recap |
Did you catch our trip recap to Green Bay, Wisconsin from a few weeks ago? It by far has been my favorite thing this month!

November Favorites | amandabixler.comI seriously cannot get enough of this book by Brendon Burchard. Everyone’s favorite girlfriend Rachel Hollis recommended it about 1,000 times and I’m so thankful I picked it up. In it, Burchard systematically walks through the intentional and thoughtful habits that high performers have put in place, habits like seeking joy, taking good care of yourself, cultivating gratitude. I love it because it’s incredibly practical yet also inspiring and motivating.

IMG_2382Ya’ll, Walmart Grocery pickup is a GAME. CHANGER. Grocery shopping is simply not one of my most favorite things in the world. I actually should add to to my list of things I don’t do. It tends to stress me out, I’m not great about sticking to a list, and I inevitably forget something. For the longest time, we’ve gone with the habit that I will meal plan, make the grocery list, and do the actual cooking (all things I love), while Andrew does the actual shopping. But over the past couple of months, we’ve been working hard to simplify our lives and streamline some things so I looked into a grocery pick up service. Walmart’s is free (while others do charge a service fee) and all I have to do is add stuff to my cart throughout the week either online or through the app, choose my pickup time, and then either Andrew or I show up to have our car loaded with our groceries. They even have an option on the app to check-in when you’re on your way so you don’t even have to call when you arrive. Genius. (Not sponsored – trust me, Walmart has no idea who I am. But if you want to try it out, click on my referral link and you’ll get $10 of your first order.)

I recently picked up these storage containers in hopes of getting better at meal prep + packing our lunches during the week. Tupperware containers for meal prep/leftover food

Happy Thanksgiving |


Happy Thanksgiving, friends! A and I are in Oklahoma this week celebrating the holiday with my mom’s side of the family and it’s been wonderful so far. It’s about a 9 hour drive so we woke up super early on Sunday and drove down. I’ve all been busting out tons of homework, papers, and content this week as well and am just loving the break from work and home-life to relax, refresh, and be creative.

I hope wherever you are today that you are able to find something to be thankful for, knowing that even in the midst of great tragedy, pain, or discontentment, that God truly is still good and is still walking with us through all.

Happy Thanksgiving! And make sure and check back in next week as we kick off a new Advent blog series.

5 Ways to Remain Thankful Year-Round |


The past several months have been insane, to say the least. Six months ago we were such in the thick of messiness, unsettledness, and uncertainty that we never would have expected to wind up where we are – loving our new state, career, and home. And while there are for sure things that have yet to be settled and communities that have yet to be formed, we feel so thankful for the work God has done in bringing us into this new season of life and are so excited to see how he continues to move in our midst.Read More »
