Friday Favorites - December Version

Somehow, this Friday Favorites edition ended up being Christmas themed. I guess it really isn't that surprising given what month it is, but a lot of red and green surfaced throughout my week! It won't be long before Christmas day is actually here!

Christmas Friday Favorites

Favorite Movie: Yes, I busted these old Christmas movies out. They are the perfect movies while you're cleaning the house, folding laundry, or wrapping presents. The Rudolf one is my personal favorite.

Favorite Christmas Decoration: Our tree topper is new this year! We picked it up at a craft fair when we visited my husband's family in Georgia. I had never seen anything like it, and loved the big initial! 

Favorite Christmas Candle: This peppermint cookie scent is fantastic! I normally don't like peppermint because it ends up being way too strong. But this one is just the right amount of peppermint and sweet! It is by far one of my favorite Yankee Candle scents!

Favorite Black Friday Finds: I got a lot of Christmas gifts for family the week of Black Friday. But I think these are 2 of my most favorite things that I got for me. I saved $40 on the jeans, and $8 on the bracelet! I feel like these are so versatile and I'll get to wear them a lot!

Favorite Christmas Moment: Writing out our Christmas cards! I love getting this kind of snail mail, but I feel like noone sends it often enough! I love sending out these postcards! I got mine off of Etsy, or course!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

  3. Peppermint Cookie sounds like it would smell AMAZING! I'm with you on peppermint scents... but you can't go wrong when you add "cookie" into the mix! (Seriously... they could make one called Vomit Cookie and I'd prob buy it.)

  5. Your tree-topper is such a cool idea! I've been loving holiday themed candles and the classic Christmas movies too! You're so right, they're the best to put on when you're doing other things just to add a little Christmas cheer!

  19. Christmas is the one time of year I always look forward to getting the mail because instead of bills there are Christmas cards (with bills in between them, haha!).
