It’s the Friday before Thanksgiving!
T-minus a few hours and my kids are off all week. Woohoo! We.are.pumped!
One thing to note…this month and next, we’re going to be posting What’s Up Wednesday a little early. For November, it will post this coming Wednesday and then in December, it will be on the 20th. The bonus question for this month is a good one. Ready? We need new ideas for our Elf on the Shelf. This month, share your favorite things to do with that darn elf. I beg you. 🙂
Alright, just like every Friday, I’m linking up with three of my besties, Andrea, Erika and Narci today and sharing my favorite things from this week. If this is the start of a break for you too, I hope you enjoy it! I’ll be blogging next week, so come by and say hi 🙂 . Happy Friday, friends!
Congratulations STEPHANIE FRANK, MEGAN MCCALLISTER AND JESSICA LEWIS!
You have all three won $50 to use towards Uniquely J products! I emailed you all this morning. I just need you to email me back and claim your prize 🙂 .
…and they’re seriously so good. I bought four boxes (all different flavors) and so far, we LOVE them! This is the chocolate biscotti thins. Yes, ma’am!
Okay…some of you young people out there aren’t going to know who the heck I’m talking about…and some of you older folks out there (cough, cough ME!) are going to love me for adding this favorite today…
…this came out today.
Okay, some of you my age don’t know who this either. I’m an old soul…with parents who insisted we appreciated artists like Dan Fogelberg growing up. His tribute album comes out today, and look at the artists covering his songs. AMAZING! I pre-ordered mine earlier this week (#oldsoul) and cannot wait to listen. I heard in him concert before he died and loved him even more after that. I am so pumped about this one!
Side note: here are some other concerts I’ve been to in my life…Barry Manilow, Elton John, Kenny Loggins, and Glenn Frey just to name a few. Ha! I’ve also been to a Justin Timberlake concert, so does that balance me out a bit? #probablynot #iblamemyparentsformytasteinmusic #someonepassmeacarpentersalbum
After much prayer and consultation with you people here in blog world 😉 , look what I finally purchased…
…a Kindle Paperwhite. I know. It was about darn time.
Here’s the thing, I’m pretty sure I’ve polled you guys at least 100 times about to Kindle or not to Kindle and the reactions and responses I received were very split. Many of you suggested that I use both actual books (when I’m home) and a Kindle (for when I travel). You ladies are brilliant. We have several trips booked in the future, so I thought I’d get this baby and use it for those. Here’s something I didn’t expect…my two big kids are now asking Santa for one too…which I LOVE because, hello?! Anything that encourages my kids to read is what I want to buy them!! I decided on the Paperwhite based on your comments, and while we were in Mexico this fall, one friend brought a Paperwhite and one brought a Fire and I felt like the Paperwhite was a better fit for me. I already downloaded my first book and am ready to go!
I was leaving the gym this week and thought, my friends might like to see my cute gym clothes…
Depending on my workout that day, I either shower or just fix myself up before I leave the gym. This was a “fix myself up” day. I washed my face, added a bit of makeup and left to run errands. The back of my top is my favorite part…
So cute, right?
It comes in 7 different colors and right now, it’s 35% off. You can find my slippers HERE 🙂 . You ladies know how much I love those darn slippers! And look at that sweet clean baby in the background. Is there anything better than a freshly washed kiddo in pjs? I think not 🙂 .
Ho! Ho! Ho! Remember my cute Christmas tee from last year? It’s back this year too! This (plus so many more!) are HERE. This little online site has the cutest holiday tees (it’s where I get all of them!).
And I don’t know about you, but watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of our FAVORITE Thanksgiving traditions! We always stay in our pjs and eat something yummy along with it. Today, I’m sharing my Thanksgiving Day Parade Breakfast Menu. Easy recipes your family will enjoy Turkey Day morning.
That’s it for today! See you guys on Monday. xo
