FRIDAY FAVORITES...THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS

Last Friday Favorites of the year my friends! I cannot believe next Friday is Christmas! In a way, I am very sad about it because the season even while I’ve extended it, lol, has gone way too fast! This is a jam-packed favorites, so let’s get right to it!

1. Oh What Fun

Oh, what fun indeed! This past weekend it was a fun filled family Christmas get together including the beautiful girlfriends! We enjoyed a fun night of dinner, appetizers, decorating Christmas cookies, girl and couples gifts, hot Toddy ‘s, and some Skip Bo and Uno! Even Grandma Giga came for a socially distanced bit to share a new cookie recipe..Red Velvet Crinkles, give the kids some gifts and of course, I sent home some snacks and champagne punch with her!




Then on Sunday, we packed it in on our little day trip to Indianapolis! After a stop at Mr. Nine‘s sisters house, we had the Bad Axe bar in Indy practically all to ourselves, spent some time at our sons new Indy apartment, walked around masked downtown, which seemed like a ghost town due to Covid, and stopped at a light display on our way home!



Love these kids so much!

2. Last Minute Gifts

It’s been a great week to share last minute Christmas gifts! I joined my fabulous influencer friends for a last minute under $25 gift share week and boy have we had some good ones! Head over to my Instagram and you’ll see how to enter a great giveaway were seven of our followers and readers well win one of the gifts we share each day so seven winners in total! AND Most of the things on this list should still be here in time for Christmas! They are all saved in my first highlight circle as well.


This Mug happens to be my favorite of the things I shared! My mom got this for me last year and I just love it because yes, this girl does love Christmas and red trucks! It comes in a great little box for gift giving! 


Mom came over to bring me Date Pinwheels yesterday and I gave her these
Under $10 an if I had magnets on my frig, I would've gotten some too. A set of 8 and so so cute! Prime and came in a day. Great stocking stuffer too!!

  29. I'm only seeing those magnets!! They are fa bu lous! I want them! Lol. They remind me when I was a child and totally obsessed with the dancing shoes. That was something in a fairytale park. One pair of red pumps that danced on their own and I was really obsessed by them!

  30. Too funny!! I clicked on your red sweater link and it brought me to the exact same sweater on Amazon that I already had a link open to (Lindsay from Lindsay's Sweet World recommended it on her Friday Favorites too! I think that is a definite sign that I need to get myself one.
