Happy Black Friday! Yup, it’s that crazy day those Americans made to make a good excuse for a discounted shopping day before Christmas. I think, it’s a fantastic idea to get all those gadgets and presents on sale instead of paying full price but I know just as many dislike it as well. I have fond memories of spending Thanksgiving with family and then gathering with all my friends to hit the shops the next day for it. I have scored some major sales on black friday so it will always be a favorite day for me. I love seeing that it’s now happening all over the world even without the holiday Thanksgiving before it. It’s the best transition from our Thanksgiving celebrations to Christmas festivities. I always put my Christmas decorations up the next day too. I can’t wait to get them up this year.
THIS WEEK WE ARE LOVING…
I have been trying to read blogs that I don’t often get to read on a regular basis but still love so much as well as stay loyal to the blogs I have been reading for years now. It’s hard to find balance as I would love to support everyone on ever post if I could. Here are a few I am reading and loving this week: The Diary of Midlife Mummy, Mummy and Monkeys, Pouting In Heels, Mummyofboygirltwins, TwinkleDiaries, Stressy Mummy, Mr and Mrs T Plus three and so many more… I think I was reading the last few nights way passed midnight on these blogs.
Have you heard? Let’s Talk Mommy and Share With Me had a total makeover. One that was very needed and I have been working on with a lovely creative lady since the beginning of summer. It’s so amazing to finally have it up and feel more like me. I have always loved my blog like my second baby but I was never in love with the look of it until now. It’s everything I wanted even if by the time I got it up so many others have similar elements to their blog. I love how many now have instagram bottoms that was one of my must haves. Instagram has to be my favorite social media ever. I love that I can scroll to most blog’s bottom now and see a whole display of their photos. I have started following more instagram accounts because of it. I hope people will do the same with mine too. What do you think of the new look? Do you like the new Share With Me badge? Don’t forget you don’t always have to link up to Share With Me blog hop, it’s a great way to just read a variety of new blogs all in one place too!
As recommended from our lovely host Morgana, I have started watching How to get away with Murder on netflix. I love any kind of lawyer/law show so we are loving this one. We also have been finishing up season five of Suits. So in love with it still after so many seasons. Our friends are trying to get us started on Breaking Bad but not sure it is my cup of tea…any suggestions?
I have been getting cozy this week with big sweaters, Ugg boots, scarves that kind of resemble a potato sack here. lol It hasn’t been so much about what looks good but what is comfortable. Our house has been torn apart with builders, dust and my wardrobe contents have been in the hallway for over a week and sleeping on couches while my walk-in closet is finished. Thus, my excuse to dress grubby. Except for one at Blogfest with the lovely Katie, got to dress for the bump next to me. 🙂
Oh I have been cooking and baking so much this week for Thanksgiving that I could list a million things I have made here. From devilled eggs, green bean casserole, corn bread, cream corn, roasted turkey, stuffing balls, pumpkin cheesecake to festive drinks and setting the table.
BRAND NEW GIVEAWAY: I have a lovely giveaway in the spirit of the holidays, I am giving the chance for one lucky reader to WIN this gorgeous Little House Advent Calendar from The White Company for Christmas! It’s so beautiful and I absolutely love ours and know it would make a lovely Christmas decoration as much as it will be fun for the kids.
