A Few of My Favorite Things

With the Christmas season in full swing, our days have been abuzz with activity.  Our home
is decorated with warm, twinkly lights, snow globes, and our favorite ornaments.  I
finished our annual Christmas card and plan to address each envelope this weekend
while enjoying a warm cup of tea at the kitchen table.  My shopping list is growing shorter
by the day and for the first year in my grown woman history, I have been wrapping each
gift as I get it.  No frantic gift wrapping the night before Christmas for me this year!
This weekend brings the first of many holiday parties and the girls and I plan to decorate
our gingerbread house.  So much wonderful holiday fun, it is my favorite time of year!
Here are a few of my favorite things this week:
This website puts a smile on my face every morning as I open up my Zuilily email and
marvel at the amazing deals and clearance sales!  I have stocked up on Christmas gifts
over the last several months thanks to Zuilily, buying things I would typically never
 purchase thanks to the amazing savings this website provides.  Here are a few of my
most recent purchases, all scored at a serious steal!
The new Black Keys album
Just in time for holiday parties, The Black Keys released their most recent album,
"El Camino", on Tuesday.  Multiple late night kitchen dance parties have ensued in our
home as a result.  The first single off of this amazing album, "Lonely Boy", will be
played incessantly as we entertain family and friends this Christmas season.

Brees and the pinkest jacket around
I do not typically dress my children in Disney character licensed, ultra pink clothing but
this jacket was just beyond any self control I could muster.  It was an online, Black
Friday score from and is the softest, most cuddly little coat I've ever
seen.  It is the only piece of clothing this baby girl does not try to immediately take
off, instead she rubs her fingers over the soft material and bats her eyelashes under
her Minnie Mouse ears.  What a heart breaker...
Now, if only Santa could bring us a little snow here in Louisiana and my Christmas cheer 
just might explode.  Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends, and may your days be
 merry and bright!
