Happy Friday, everyone!
I had a pretty good week, especially considering how it started… I woke up
early on time Monday and I was all showered and ready to treat myself to some iced coffee before work. I was planning to head in early and drop little Christmas gifts on my co-workers’ desks. Five minutes before walking out the dog I noticed Lylee was limping. When I ran my hands down her leg to check for injuries I found none; however, she had a nice, sizable leaf/mud/poop mixture caked into her paw. UGH. So we went straight to the bath and I spent my extra morning minutes scrubbing dog paws and vacuuming/scrubbing the floor.
Needless to say: I welcome you, Friday. (Also, the word “sizable” looks weird…)
In other news, have you seen Google’s new Santa Village?? You can bet your sweet bottom I will be tracking Santa on Christmas Eve 😉
I’m obsessed with online shopping. Of course there’s Amazon Prime, but there are some serious treasures on Nebrowse, Amber Thomas Makes, Hey June, Good Word Candles… Yep, I’ve browsed all of them this season. If you’re in need of a unique gift you should definitely direct your attention to these artists!
As long as we’re talking about favorites… here are some of my favorite tree ornaments:
Breaking from the Christmas mold… If you are a fan of country (like me!) then you’ve probably already heard of Old Dominion. (“Break Up With Him”) If you haven’t listen to their entire CD Meat & Candy, then you should really check it out. My husband and I have been listening to it on repeat! (My favorite song for today is “Half Empty”.)
And now for some blogger love:
- My very good friend, colleague, and honorary old roommate Dana has joined the blog world! ❤️ I’m a huge fan of this community and Dana has so much to offer with her little corner of the internet! Check her out at The Creative Beastie!!
- Chelsea at The New Wifestyle just returned from Antarctica. Yes, you read that right. She’s made three posts about her trip that you have to check out!! Start here. Then read this. And finish with this guy.
- Faith had her first guest post for her “After I do” series (and it was Christine from Christine Everyday!). She talked about a topic that plagues 99.9% of all newly and not-so-newly weds! Check it out!
By the way, I accomplished a few things this week: I finally finished a book, my Christmas shopping is done, and my house is finally clean (a.k.a. I’m caught up on vacuuming, dishes, putting clutter away/Christmas boxes in the attic, & bathrooms are clean).
Bring on the weekend!
