I am SO EXCITED because it’s also DAY THREE of FIVE DAYS OF FABULOUS!!!
Let’s recap a bit…
ON MONDAY: We gave one winner and 9 of her friends each either a blardigan or Bose wireless speaker.
ON TUESDAY: We gave one winner and 4 of her friends both Uggs and a cozy throw.
Well…some of you noticed that Rafflecopter (the site we use for contests like these) went down yesterday morning. We know that so many of you are morning blog readers, so we are extending yesterday’s prize by one more day!! If you didn’t register to win yesterday, go back HERE and do that. Tomorrow, we’ll announce both the winners from yesterday and today!! Speaking of which…
Ready for DAY THREE?!
Here we go…
One lucky winner and THREE of her friends will each receive a $250 gift card from our friends at Accessory Concierge!!!
Isn’t that so much fun?! One thousand dollars worth of accessories for you to enjoy or gift this holiday season.

From earrings to bracelets, bags, necklaces, scarves and more, you will find so many great gift ideas HERE.

Okay, on to today’s post! Once a month, my friends Mel, Sheaffer and I host this link up where we share some random and fun stuff that’s up with us today. If you blogged WUW too, make sure you link up at the bottom of the post! Every month, we answer these questions…
…in our What’s Up Wednesday posts!
This really is the only Christmas cookie recipe you need for the season! Find out how to turn one dough recipe into 10 different cookies HERE.
I saw this pic the other day and it gave me all the happy feels!!
Oh my gosh! Can you stand the cuteness?! This was November 16, 2015…so about 10 months after we got our sweet Ashby London. She’s three years old here. Ugh! My heart about burst when I saw this. I love this girl so much!!!!
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
I wore this sweater to Thanksgiving with my family (I have no pics of myself in it…but trust me, I had it on but in another color), and my grandmother loved it, so look what she sent me three days later…
..isn’t she beautiful?! I love that my grandmother is still cool enough to shop at Altar’d State and buy the same sweater as me 🙂 . I love this woman so much!! This pic made me so happy!
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Here was my view the other night…
…we were watching Christmas with the Kranks together. Then, Andrew took this pic…
…bahahahaha! Andrew sat in a chair by himself and enjoyed the movie…I was a kid magnet 😉 .
Stressing out over stupid things.
Hi, my name is Shay and I rarely ever stress out over big things (I have an easy time giving those over to God), but boy…the stupid, little holiday things can sure stress me out.
This is something I pray about often because it’s so dumb. Something major? Oh, I take that straight to the Lord and let him handle it. Having to find time to address my Christmas cards? That will stress me right on out.
What is wrong with me.
I really need to keep working on this.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Ohhhhhhhh! Sheaffer and I have tricks up our sleeves!!! Stay tuned tomorrow and Friday!!!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Please see above 🙂 .
My November Book Review was up yesterday…
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Right this very minute, Nat King Cole sing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. #allthehappyfeels
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Besides these cute scarves?!
…and then again with my Buffalo plaid sweater (from last year, but HERE is a similar one)…and then again…
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
All three of my girlies are in a recital this weekend! Loads of super cute pics to come next week 🙂 .
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Last but not least, look how happy I am…
…I got a Night Pillow 🙂 .
Here I am cozy in bed (in my plaid sheets no less!) with my Kindle and resting on my Night Pillow. #bliss
Hahahaha! So, you know I’m a big fan of My Pillows, but when my friend Ashley Spivey asked me if I wanted her to send me a Night Pillow, I was like SURE! Friends, if you are not a fan of the lumpy (yet delightful) My Pillow, then THIS PILLOW IS FOR YOU! I love them both, but they’re very different!! This Night Pillow is memory foam, so the whole thing is very different from other pillows I’ve used in the past. BUT the best part? The pillow case it comes with helps make your hair shiny and helps with your skin. #winning I slept on it one night and then Kensington wanted to use it the second night…the third night, Smith used it and the fourth night, I demanded it back 🙂 . I’ve slept on it now five nights in a row and honest to goodness really like it! You can learn all about it HERE. When I told Ashley that I liked it, she got me a promo code for you guys! With code Shay30 you get 30% OFF YOUR ENTIRE ORDER! Let me know if you’ve tried this before! I am really loving mine!!
Bonus question this month: WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO WITH YOUR ELF ON THE SHELF?
I’m always looking for more ideas when it comes to this!! Once, I did a post on our elf and ideas we use that you can read HERE. I would say that the one my kids get the biggest kick out of is this one…
…the elf starts a puzzle and then as the day goes by, the Elf builds on the puzzle when the kids aren’t looking. By the end of the day, the puzzle is completed. We do all sorts of sneaky things to work a piece in here and there and my kids always think it’s so funny.
Okay! That’s What’s Up Wednesday today!
