Five Friday Favorites...

Since I have TONS of jars that I've been saving up for some reason or another, I've made a board on my Pinterest on ideas for them.  Here are my five favorite ones:

Anything having to do with music automatically grabs my attention.

Isn't he adorable?!  

You can add slipper socks, hot cocoa, etc.  Such a neat idea.

Who wouldn't want a little something to smell like Christmas?!

I love pancakes & I think that everyone else should too!  Ha!


  1. I found you from the Oh Hey Friday linkup!

    I love the idea of gifts in a mason jar! We recently made taco seasoning for our family and friends!

    1. Ohhh, taco seasoning. That's a good idea!

  2. I love 'gifts in a jar'! They are so fun. These are some awesome ideas..I may put some of them to use this Christmas.

    Great post

    1. Yea, I've never done jar gifts before but I'm gonna start cuz there are SO many great ideas.

  3. So cute! I saw one today: a can of coke in a mason jar with a mini Jack Daniels tied on the outside of it.

    1. Hey, I like that idea as well. & maybe a lil pack of peanuts or pretzels. I like. :)

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 …

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…

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 &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
