Friday Five...


Happy Friday, everyone!  We are less than two weeks away from Christmas now!  Eeek!  I am not ready...I will be but right now, I am not & there is always one more thing to get or buy.  It's exhausting.  Ha!

This week my Friday Five will be realistic gifts I want since last week were gift ideas that...well...were not all that realistic.  I mean, Chris Hemsworth, not realistic.  However, if someone was able to get him for me, I will NOT turn that present down.  Ha!

1.  Charm Bracelet.  So, for the last two years, I've been on the hubby about getting me a charm bracelet.  I think that it would be a fabulous gift & the gift that keeps on giving cuz he could get me charms for different occasions.  Here are some of the charms I put on my Christmas Wish List on Amazon:

 
 
  2.  Sports Shirts for Work.  Obviously, if you know me at all, you know that I would sport my teams' colors everyday if I could.  Well, at work on Fridays we get to dress more casual & I like to sport polos & such with my teams' logos on them.  Here are a few that I picked out:

 

  3.  Snowmen Decorations.  I love snowmen...& penguins.  I have added penguin decorations to my list this year as well.  My decorations this time of year are more snowmen than anything else & then I can leave them out until about mid-January when I take them down for the Valentine's Day decorations.  :)

  4.  Tattoos!  I have ideas for more tattoos & my cousin & I have a plan to go get matching Cousin/Nerd Tattoos.  We are looking at something like this but we want to make some slight changes - like adding Ant-Man to the mix:


  5.  Books.  I'm always in need of new books.  I only purchase the physical books by James Patterson & I'm always behind cuz he releases new ones like every other week!  & there are many on my Kindle Wish List that I would like.  You can never have too many books...I just need more time to read them all.

    1. It's horrible. I really wish that I had more time. I try to get at least a chapter read of my book each night but lately, I haven't been able to even do that. Sigh. :(

    1. Oh my gosh, I have so many books on my shelf that I need to read yet. My hubby gets upset with me when I say that I want to re-read something - "why would you do that when you have fifty books downstairs that you haven't read yet?!" Ha!

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.


My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Currently...

Another month starting with another Currently linkup - awhoo hoo!  So, what does Anne have going on this month?  Well, come along & check it out!  :)

Gathering..."recipes" for my new oil diffuser.  Lately, it's been all about the eucalyptus because Paul has been sick for a week now & I got it a lil bit.  I told him that I'm gonna have a buy a new bottle of eucalyptus before I get a chance to crack any of my other bottles. 

Making...a whole lot of nothing.  We really have not had a sit-down meal in awhile because one of us has been busying doing something or we just don't feel like cooking.  Tomorrow, however, I do have on the menu to make chicken & rice with green beans.  So, we have that.

Sipping...coffee with Sugar Cookie creamer.  It's delish but I am ready for something with some caramel in it.  I love me some caramel.  Yummy!

Following...lots on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.  My favorite to watch on Instagram/Snapchat is Taylor.  She cracks m…

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…
