Oh helloooo Friday! I’m so happy to see you. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have me a little tired and things are getting ready to really ramp up.
Can you believe….
Yep, 25 days. And all the teachers are counting down the
days minutes until Christmas break.
It’s Friday and that means it’s time to share some favorites from the week and link up with some blog friends, so be sure to check the link ups tab and see who I’m partying with today.
I wore this outfit on Tuesday. It was perfect for decorating our Christmas tree. This flannel tunic is from American Eagle last year, but they have this one that is very similar this year and it’s on sale for a little under $28. I think it’s the softest flannel I’ve ever felt. The jeans are pull on jeggings from Old Navy and are so comfortable. They have a really skinny leg so they are great for wearing with my favorite boots.

Having my tree up makes me happy and I’m happy I can mark that off my list. I don’t know about you, but I get all sentimental when I start pulling out all of the ornaments from Christmas’s past and thinking about what they mean. When the kids were younger I would buy an ornament for them every year with the intention of giving them to them once they moved out to have for their own trees. Well now that I’m staring down the barrel of that thought I’m finding it hard to let go of them, but I’m telling myself that they will need them more than I do.
This was a birthday gift I received recently and I thought it would be a great gift for the spas lovers in your life.
Last year I hosted my 1st annual cookie exchange. You can read a little about it here, and now I’m in the planning stages of this years. I’d better get my rear in gear and get moving. I’ve been looking at Pinterest for a fun cookie to make. Do you have a favorite cookie? I like one that not only looks pretty, but tastes good too.
These White Chocolate Dipped Molasses Cookies are what Katie and I made for it last year. They are so delicious and I’d love to just make them again, but also want to try something new. These are really pretty easy to make, but are beautiful so if you are planning to host or attend a cookie exchange, I highly recommend them.
Finding fun gifts can be hard, especially if you have an indecisive streak like me. Here are some gifts ideas if you are coming up dry. These are all under $50 and would make pretty much any woman happy. There are lots of opportunities for gifting coming up from friends, to teachers, to hairdressers, to coaches or family. One of these is bound to be a hit. Click on the image to be taken to that item.
