Friday No. 28

Andy and I decided to both take the day off from work and we are both looking forward to the long weekend before the holiday next week. I'm also really excited for tomorrow since I have plans to make Chex mix and these little gems with my sister and her girls!

  1. I’m almost done Christmas shopping! We picked up a gift for our nephew last weekend and I ordered my bestie’s gift this week! We just have one more nephew to shop for and then I need to pick up some things for Andy but then it’s wrapping time! I also kind of want to purchase a stocking for our little guy — you never know, he could arrive before Christmas! ;)

  2. Speaking of shopping for Andy, I’ll probably scope out Black Friday sales at some of his favorite stores — Vineyard Vines and Nordstrom are usually where I purchase the majority of his gifts. These and these little minis make for great stocking stuffers, too!

  3. We’re planning to swing by Trader Joe’s this weekend to check out their holiday items and pick up a few unique ingredients for when we host Thanksgiving next Thursday! They always have the best seasonal items — I’m on the hunt for a red pepper or holiday flavored jelly to use for an appetizer and a little mini Christmas tree like the one I purchased last year. Also, I’m thinking anything peppermint flavored will be tossed into our cart as well!

  4. The shower caps that I designed for Ulta were recently added to their store shelves — there’s a unicorn one, panda bears, and sweet treats! I just placed an order on this evening so that I could snag each of my designs along with these lip balms for Andy to toss in my stocking and a new bottle of my favorite foundation since I’m almost out!

  5. I still can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving next week! I’m looking forward to watching this holiday classic with Andy, enjoying some relaxing days at home, and doing a little online Black Friday shopping for our little family.

What are your Thanksgiving plans this year?

Their pumpkin butter is my absolute favorite!
