Well, I had originally planned to theme this post around the 5 best gifts I’m giving this Christmas, but turns out I couldn’t really think of 5 stellar out of this world gifts (we’re pretty practical around here) and there were a few other totally amazing things I wanted to share... so here’s to some Friday randomness as we head into the holiday weekend!
ONE! May as well start with the loads of holiday parties I’ve been to in less than a week... family party, friend dress up party, girls’ cookie swap. I love having plans and visiting with friends! (and apparently babies... lol)
TWO! Coasters by Michelle! A gift that I am giving this year, and one of my favorites, I made myself! I don’t really consider myself a crafty person so I’m really excited about how they turned out. One of my teammates gave me a set of these last year and I loved them so much she taught me how to make them. I made 5 unique sets of four, wrapped ‘em up with ribbon, and there ya go!
THREE! THIS granola by Real-Meals. I’m so addicted I even gave it as gifts. I feel like everyone is giving cookies and feeling all Fatty McCracken by the end of the day, so why not give a somewhat healthy snack instead? This company sells healthy homemade foods made from real ingredients that include a little bit of everything from cereal to jams to lasagna and even dog treats! It was also started by the mother of one of my students, so I’ve seen an 8 year old shovel this stuff in like candy. If you live in Maryland or Northern VA, check it out. It’s all delicious and definitely worth taking note of.
FOUR! Gold glitter polish. I couldn’t stop myself from buying it and love how festive it looks! Seriously ladies, if you are broke like moi, stop going to the nail salon and do the gel yourself. It is so easy and looks just as amazing if you take your time!
FIVE! I saved the best for last. It’s the absolute best animal video I’ve seen since Tank got into the trash. If you haven’t seen it, watch it. If you have, enjoy again. As a cat enthusiast, I was dying.
