Five Friday Favorites

Here we go again!  So close to Christmas.  Here’s what I am loving this week:

[one] Leg Lamp Blanket

My father loves the movie A Christmas Story.  I had been thinking of making him a blanket (a more serious one) but then I saw this blanket kit and knew it was for him.  Now the blanket is all finished up, wrapped, and ready to be given.

[two] Ready to Go

The presents have all been purchased or made and wrapped.  I am so relieved and tired.  Really tired.  I had like 90% of things done early but waited until the last minute on a few things and I should not have done that.  I’ll start on next Christmas in January.

[three] Gift Ideas

If you’re not all done shopping and in need of ideas then check out my Christmas Gift Guide.  It even has ideas for the parents & inlaws.  As a reminder there are 4 days left to order in time for Christmas according to Amazon.  So if you’re not done you are not totally doomed but get on it!

I was birthday shopping for my sister a few weeks ago when I stumbled across this Harry Potter coloring book.  I may or may not have squealed at the time.  When things die down around here I may have to get one for myself.  Because really, one can only color Thomas and Mickey so many times, am I right?

That blanket is so much fun! I bet your dad is going to LOVE it! I am with you on the Fuller House thing. I watched the preview and got SO darn excited. I feel like it could be a total flop and I will adore it simply for the fact that it reminds me of my youth so very much.

I will probably love it even if it flops too! I feel like they all wouldn't have signed on if it were going to go in a terrible direction or something so I have high hopes.

Love the blanket! That is a great idea. And I am so so excited for Fuller House-my sisters and I used to watch Full House constantly and I can't wait to see what they do with the Netflix show.

Have a great weekend and a wonderful Christmas!

I don't know if I am excited or nervous for Full House to come back...I mean, I loved it as an eight year old because I wanted to be one of their sisters. Do you think they can outdo themselves?! :) I guess I will watch to find out!! Love that blanket!! Perfect gift!! And your gift guides are awesome...I have been thinking about getting our 3.5 year old a scooter! I think he would love it!

I'm super excited for it to come back. I agree a little nervous because who knows what they will do to it but I love those characters so I'm excited for more!

Love that blanket! It's hard to believe but we haven't even watched the movie this year. My husband loves it because it's totally the story of his life! Have a great Christmas with your family!

We haven't seen it yet this year either but I know my dad will have it playing Christmas day so I'll definitely see it. Hope your family has a great Christmas too!
