Friday Favorites: Holiday Spirit

One of my best blends, Katie and Running4Cupcakes, has started a Friday Favorites link up and since I truly enjoy writing about Friday Favorites sometimes otherwise known as Five Things Friday, I just had to join in!

Her theme for Friday favorites is to focus in on “the little things that made you smile over the past week. And anything goes! Because we all know that it’s the little things in life that make it count, right?” source


I am really getting into the holiday spirit as I’ve mentioned before. The minty coffee drinks, the Christmas music, the lights, the cookies….I am just full of Christmas spirit and loving every second of it. A few of my Friday Favs are holiday related, and a few are just completely random. So without further ado….

Friday Favorites

1. Online shopping. I am not one for crowds, so online Christmas shopping at Flyp has been something wonderful to me. It keeps me stress-free and we all can appreciate that, I always shop at Macy’s during Christmas since it literally has everything you could think of, I always look for coupons online, you can  click for more info.

2. Watching Gossip Girl while walking or running on the treadmill. This keeps me occupied for a good hour! The drama gives me a little bit of anxiety, but then I remember it’s just a show and then I’m okay. It’s ridiculous but I’m addicted.

3. Snow. It finally snowed around here and I love how much prettier it looks outside. Many people complain about it but I think it’s gorgeous. Sure we have to be more careful on the roads, shovel our driveways, and give ourselves extra time to wipe off our cars, but it’s worth it.

4. Christmas Lights. We have the front and back of our house decorated with Christmas lights along with our Christmas tree and they make me so happy every time I look at them. The simple joys.

5. Victoria’s Secret Boyfriend Sweatpants. 

Dana got me these for my birthday (light pink top and navy blue bottoms) and I LOVE them. These pants are so amazingly comfortable. I feel like I should stock up on a bunch of these they are so great.

Happy FRIDAY my loves!

  2. Love the snow jumping pic! Your Christmas tree is very pretty. I love having the Christmas tree up, especially on cold evenings, when I’m all cozied up inside.

    I love that picture of you and Dana! Could you two be anymore adorable? 🙂

    No snow in Boston yet; or at least not sticking! Looking forward to a white Christmas and hopefully some skiing!

    One of my favorites from the week is watching The Mindy Project On Demand! I always forget which night it’s on, so it’s like a little treat to watch it recorded.

      First of all, stop it. You are too sweet.

      Any snow in Boston yet? I’m sending it your way…

      I love watching shows on Netflix commercial-free. Dana and I watched all of Breaking Bad (even though we didn’t get to finish the whole season but I’m not sure if it’s even over yet) and now we have moved on to Orange is the new black. Although, watching shows without commercials makes them extremely addicting!

  5. Omg yes I love the vs boyfriend pants. They are so comfy!!!
    I’m also happy it finically snowed! I really with the temp was in the 20-30s but I love the snow.

      I feel like I should seriously stock up on them so I can enjoy them in the future when they stop making them. I want to tell the world about them they are so comfy!
