Well hello there, friends and a very happy Friday to ya!
Cliché as it may sound, this week has flown by. Like, ‘Superman who just drank five Redbulls’ fast! And I’m really not complaining. Work has been slower than a turtle in a sloth’s costume sitting in Denver traffic lately (overkill on the analogies?) and it’s really just all of the worst. Luckily, there are now only 9 more days until I have two whole weeks of sweet, sweet vacation! Only nine more days until I am reunited with my crazy family. Only nine more days until I kick off the most epic of Christmas celebrations to date! ONLY NINE MORE DAYS!!!!
But who’s counting, really?
Because there are only nine more days until I am gone for two whole weeks, I have a feeling that this weekend will be spent packing my life away. I’m one of those weirdos who likes to have everything ready to go well ahead of time (I know, right. So annoying.) Plus, when it comes to packing, I suck. I mean, how does one fit only
4 9 books into a carry-on suitcase?! And I guess I should pack some clothes and maybe a toothbrush too, huh? Ugh. The whole process is just so stressful!
So when you’re out and about this weekend doing some last minute Christmas shopping and cookie
baking eating, think of me, knee-deep in jeans and paperbacks.
But in the meantime, please check out my finds from around the web and more in this week’s Friday Fav’s!
P.S. I wanted to share some exciting new with y’all!! A blog post of mine was recently featured on one of the coolest sites around, Hellogiggles.com! You can check it out here. The other exciting news? They asked me to be a regular contributor to the site!!! I’m still trying to process it all, but I am pretty darn excited! And honored! And oh so grateful!
Favorite funny: 21 Actual Analogies Used by High School Students in English Essays. Speaking of analogies…I found this floating around Facebook the other day and was dyying. #14…I can’t even.
Favorite Christmas breakfast: Cinnamon-Pumpkin Waffles with a Caramel Syrup. I saw this photo on my Instagram feed a few days ago and my mouth instantly began to water. I want to take a swim in that caramel syrup!
Favorite steal/obsession: How I am just finding out about Thriftbooks.com now is a travesty because let me tell you, it’s the best thing since sliced bread! You can find all of your favorite books (gently used) for under $8! I KNOW! I just got myself a couple of early Christmas presents yesterday (okay, it was more like 12). I have a feeling this website is going to be dangerous. Great Christmas gift idea for all book lovers in your life!
Favorite Bookish Find: On those cold winter nights, you can read in bed while bundled up in your fuzzy book blanket! Need. Want. Must have.
Favorite Seasonal Slurp: Homemade White Hot Chocolate. Yummazing. I’m a fan of all things hot chocolate, but white hot chocolate?! Now you’re speaking my language!
Favorite Chrismas Coooookie: Classic. Simple. Tradition. A perfect dunking vessel for that cup of White Hot Chocolate. 🙂
Favorite Take Me There: The spot of the world’s first Christmas tree, the Tallinn Square Market in Estonia is one of the most picturesque holiday locales I have seen! Stunning!
Favorite Lesson: THIS is what Christmas is really all about. The little dude with the blanket was wise beyond his years.
Favorite Fur Ball: Santa Pup! Too much cuteness!
Have a great weekend, guys!
