Friday I’m in Love

Happy Friday! It’s been a while since I’ve shared what I have been loving. My apologies. Life has been insanely busy! Let’s get started…

It is the MOST wonderful time of the year! I ordered our Christmas cards in early November, but they have been sitting on our dining room table for weeks. I finally broke them out this week (when I should have been writing my paper, of course) to address them. Greg and I had a nice assembly line going. I was in charge of addressing and he was in charge of stamping. Addressing was a little more fun this year thanks to my sweet little Lettermate. It really does help you write in a straight line! I am anxious to practice with it some more and maybe get a little bit more fancy next year….we’ll see. Ha!

I was not as impressed with my Black Friday, Cyber Monday shopping as I have been in the past, but I did manage to stock up on some more Replay dishes, including the flat plates which we hadn’t ordered yet. These were the Anna and Elsa inspired sets that were only available that weekend and ended up selling out. I love the colors and am so excited to start using the flat plates for the kids. We absolutely LOVE these dishes and don’t use anything else!

Ya’ll… Fixer Upper is back for it’s third season and I am in love! It has been quiet the anticipated comeback for the show, so we are happy it is finally here. I came across the article: 49 Thoughts You Have Every Time You Watch HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” and they are spot on. Seriously, when are Chip and Jojo going to adopt me?!

We are in full on Christmas mode in our house. Sprinkles (the elf) is back and is moving about the house while the kids are sleeping and our advent calendar is filled with fun activities for the month. I shared our list of activities over on Orlando Moms Blog this week if you want to check them out. We also hit up Santa a few weeks ago and I was pleased with the picture. I may be biased, but I think we have the best Santa in the country. Kenley told Santa she wants Christmas pajamas for Christmas. She’s easy to please!

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday deals!
You know that I’ve been loving me some Amazon deals and I definitely still am, but I’ve also been sharing the wealth. I have been scooping up gifts for others all week and I plan to do the same this weekend. I have also been doing a lot of window shopping on Instagram since I follow a lot of handmade shops. Thrifty Littles put together the ultimate Black Friday Small Business Shopping Guide (which I saw Misha was loving too!) and it features my good friend Sally’s shop: Sally Sarah Designs! Head over and give it a little looksie.

We ran our first Turkey Trot 5K yesterday morning. It was a little chilly, but great running weather. The kids stayed in their pjs and Kenley got a “funny bone” stress ball from our swag bag. It was so fun to do a race as a family.

One of Greg’s favorite dishes is green bean casserole. Imagine my excitement when I found green beans AND mushrooms in one can! It was perfect to use in the casserole and it was delicious!

I came across another good article about youth sports, injury prevention, and not committing to one sport too early. I have no clue what sports our kids will play, for how long, or what they will like, but I grew up playing multiple sports from childhood through high school, so these articles definitely interest me. I hope some of you enjoy them too!

Happy Black Friday!
