12 Days of Christmas · Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites #8

Hey hey! Happy Friday!! And Happy first day of December!! I am so excited for December, as it is my favorite month because of CHRISTMAS, my husband’s birthday, and New Years Eve!! All amazing celebrations!

We made it to the end of the week, and I am one happy girl! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I’m not sure what I’m doing, but I’m sure it will be like any other weekend around here! I need to get a Christmas-y picture of Michael and I to put on our Christmas card, ya’ll I’m so behind and sad we weren’t able to be in Disney in November (like the past two years) to get some Christmas photos done. BOOOO! Next year will be different, my friends! But in the meant time, here’s to hoping we actually can take a cute picture this weekend!

Anyways, let’s get right into this weeks round up of Friday Favorites!

12 Days of Christmas

For the past couple years, Michael and I take part in the 12 days of Christmas each year. It’s so much fun!! Starting on December 13 every year we get each other “presents”  counting down until Christmas Day. In the beginning of December, I will write up some cute things on index cards and label them 1-13 for each day. (I’m doing that this weekend!) On these index cards I try to be cute and come up with a poem or something about what we are to do for/get each other on that day. So for example, on day ten I had us get each other “1 gift under $10”, but then some were random like “take Christmas-y pictures together” (like the pictures above, which were taken last year). It is SO FUN and I can’t wait to start it this year!

I am so excited, I could squeal!!!! (I think I am as I am typing this up) I have always wanted to go to New York during Christmas time to see all of the Christmas decorations and take it all in, see The Rockettes LIVE….and guess what!! This dream is coming true!! I cannot wait to take on NYC with hubby again, and this time during my favorite time of year!! Eeeekkkk!!!!

…and scoring Live with Kelly and Ryan tickets

Literally, I have been stalking their website for tickets about a million times a minute in the past week! AHHHHH!!!!!! I hope I get a repeat of THIS magic moment!!

Nighttime Recovery Creme from Merle Norman Cosmeticsimg_2875

With the winter weather coming, let’s be real, my face is DRY! This nighttime moisturizer is heavy, and wonderful. I swear if I have a dry spot anywhere (including my FINGERS!) it’s gone in like 2 days because I put this stuff on at night. Go to your nearest Merle Norman Studio and get yo self a jar of this!!

Pentatonix Christmas Deluxeimg_2876

Okay so mayyyybe I’ve been listening to this all year long (oh c’mon guys, you know this is a definite) but we’ve been playing it at the store and I gotta tell you, it is so calming and just so beautiful! How could you ever be in a bad mood when listening to Christmas music?! I don’t think it is possible. To be honest, whenever I am on the plane going somewhere I switch between Michael Buble and Pentatonix’s Hallelujah, it is just so peaceful and totally gives me comfort.

Bringing Gio home from schoolimg_2870

So I get this has been on my Friday Favorites before, but I think it will ALWAYS be my favorite!! I wasn’t in his classroom yesterday, but I still got to bring him home and spend time with him! I had him laughing his little bum off by the time we pulled into his driveway, and my heart was totally bursting with joy. I am supposed to be subbing in his classroom this morning, so I am looking forward to that for sure!!

Have a great Friday and a fabulous weekend!! Xoxo ♥♥
