Friday Favorites #35.

Hey hey hey!  It's Friday!!  We are less than a week away from Thanksgiving!  How is that even possible?  Weren't we JUST trick or treating? 

But oh that Thanksgiving feast.  I can't wait!


I wish I could say I was happy to see Friday but my days will all be about the same until mid-December.  I have been hunkered down in my craft room for 10-12 hours every day this week working on orders and that's probably how it will be until I close up shop sometime in December. 

This isn't always a ton of fun and I may have broken down into stress tears once already but there are also definite perks to working a lot.  One being that I am way ahead of the game when it comes to Christmas movies.  I've got to keep myself entertained somehow!  So far I've watched The Family Stone (all-time favorite), Home Alone, Christmas Vacation, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the Jim Carrey one) and at least a dozen Hallmark movies.

I am feeling all kinds of festive, y'all.  :)

If you are wondering if you can still place an order for Christmas, the answer is YES!  But you definitely need to get your order in sooner rather than later.  The turnaround time is 2-3 weeks at the moment plus transit time.  I have some super cute stuff that make excellent gifts so be sure to check out the shop HERE.  All ordering info can be found in each listing under "Item Details".  Message me with questions!


Like every Friday, I'm linking up with my girls Andrea, Narci and Erika again to share some of my Favorites from the week!

My first favorite goes to this flippin' ADORABLE mug that I found on Etsy!  I am always so happy to support other Etsy sellers so I had to share this.

The shop name is Polymer Gifts Victoria and you can find it HERE.  I don't know Victoria but she posted her mugs in an Etsy sellers FB group I'm in and when I saw this one, it just called to me.  Maybe it was the blonde hair or the green eyes.  Maybe it was because that crossbody bag looks exactly like one I have and I can practically smell the skinny mocha latte coming from that Starbucks cup.  Whatever it is, I knew I needed it.  :)

Victoria is located in Belgium and she will personalize your mug however you want.  It took about 3 weeks to come in so be sure to order now if you want to order for Christmas.

(This was not sponsored by Victoria in any way.  She doesn't know I'm posting about it but I hope she gets some good traffic to her shop from this!  True talent.)

Last night, my friend, Dani, hosted an Elf Survival Prep party at her house.  I'll post more on this next week but the gist of it was for everyone to come up with an idea for some kind of shenanigans your Elf could get up to and then bring the supplies needed to make that happen.  (Snow angels in sprinkles, toilet papering the Christmas tree, funny mustaches on family pictures, etc.) 

At the end of the night, everyone left with a bag full of ideas and the supplies to make each idea happen.  It was such a fun excuse to get together for a little girls' night and I ended up getting to chat with someone I went to college with and haven't seen in 13+ years.  (Hi, Allison!)

This shirt popped up on Amazon while I was doing some browsing the other day and it got me wondering what other cute shirts might be on there.

You can find this one here.  The sizing guide says they fit pretty true to size.  I ordered a medium because I don't want it tight anywhere.  Aren't those sleeves so cute!?

I also loved these...

This one comes in red or green sleeves as well.  So cute!  I'd definitely size up but that's just me. It looks like it may run a little small. Find it HERE.

And for all you mama bears...

Raising my tribe shirt HERE

And can I get an #amen on this next one??

I LIVE in tshirts.  And these super soft ones are just the best.  Plus, it's been warm and humid all week here and that weather just makes me want to be cool and comfortable.   Find this one HERE.  A couple of these are already scheduled to arrive by Saturday.  ;)

My mom asks me what I want for Christmas every year and every year I say I don't know.  So at night, to wind down after painting all day, I window shop for possible Christmas gifts.  I really want a new purse and this Frye Hobo bag is speaking to me.  And it's 50% off!  (Under $200!)

This Born bag is so cute too!  I love the detail and it's less than $100.

This whole website is just the best.  Everything is on major sale and you can find tons of deals on brand name items.  It's where I got my Hunter boots for 50% off and these FAVORITE low-heeled booties as well.   

I recently finished the book The Secrets She Keeps and it was really good!  It definitely had that creepy twist but it was more Lifetime movie creepy instead of The Breakdown or Behind Closed Doors creepy.

One pregnant blogger.  One pregnant psycho who is obsessed with the pregnant blogger.  Their paths cross and a mom's worst nightmare begins.

For those of you who like to know if the ending will wrap up nicely or leave you hanging, I'll just say that all questions are answered and it all makes sense in the end.  Don't you hate those open endings where the author wants you to interpret it however you want?  Nope.  That's not how this works.  I need it to be wrapped up so I can have closure and move on.  #doyourjobauthor ;)

So if you're looking for a new thriller, you might want to check this one out!

So that's the list today, friends!  I'm hoping to be back to my blogging norm soon but right now I've got 138 open orders staring me in the face and the people pleaser in me is scared to death to ship anything even a day later than it should.  (Cue those stress tears...)

But I want to leave you with a fun #icanteven for the week!

I just don't even know where to start.  I love that the furry fuzzy stuff goes all the way down that heel though.  Whoever made this shoe was COMMITTED to this fabric.

What do we think, friends?  Add them to the Christmas Wish List?  Perfect for a holiday party?

#pleasesayno ;)

And before I go...

Remember to check out my Facebook group if you haven't yet!  I've got a new Giveaway coming soon!!!  Just trying to decide what to give away this time.  ;)
