Christmas Vacation: Big Cedar Edition

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and I am oh so happy I get to share it with my people. We spent the past two days getting into the Christmas spirit at Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, Missouri.

We have lots of kiddos in the fam and Big Cedar has so much to offer. From a new bowling alley, to golf kart rides on the Top of the Rock, to mini golf, they have activities galore!


You won’t go hungry either, Big Cedar has some fine dining ( you can check it all out here)

We ate at the Devil’s Pool restaurant twice and the Maple cornbread is to die for!

alllll the Christmas feels

I’ve been loving warm colors lately and this H&M knit is my new fav addition to my closet; not to mention my Citizens of Humanity jeans I snagged on Black Friday.

Between juggling dance team and school work, I don’t get a lot of time to come home. So, I love being home for the holidays and getting to spend time with my family.


Seriously … the dreamiest little vintage airstream that had yummy hot cocoa and s’mores kits. With the cold temp, we couldn’t resist.


nice ‘n toasty


And of course it isn’t a winter wonderland without ice skating!


*cue “Here Comes Santa Claus”*

If you’re vacationing with kids, the Polar Express put on by the Branson Scenic Railway is an unmatched experience. So cute, so magical.


We were read The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg, given some hot cocoa (plus some dancing from the staff), and got to see Santa who gave all the youngins their very own silver bells. It was so fun getting to see all of the kids excitement during the train ride festivities.


Before heading out we stopped at the Top of the Rock to get a view of the gorgeous Chapel of the Ozarks. You can enjoy a world-class golfing experience, dinner with a view, and premier lodging coming soon, check it all out here!

Have yourself a merry little Christmas & be looking for some holiday fun coming soon !!
