My Friday Five

My Friday Five

It’s that time again – thank goodness. Friday.. Friday… Friday! I had a nasty virus that knocked me off my feet for a few days, so I’m happy to report I’m back to feeling mostly myself again. Here’s My Friday Five for the week.

1) Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town – My office has a holiday party every year for the employees’ children. They do such a nice job with it. I unfortunately had to miss the party since I was sick, but Todd took Carter. He is at such a great age for the magic of Christmas and was so excited to see Santa and tell him how good he’s been this year.carter-santa2) Spreading Cheer – We got most of our Christmas cards out this week. Since I notoriously dislike my handwriting, normally we print labels, but this year I decided to run the envelopes through our computer. Surprisingly it took less time and turned out great. (don’t worry, this is a fake address in the picture).

4) On the Mark Fix! I think I’ve mentioned before that I subscribe to Stitch Fix, an online styling service. I got a new “fix” this week and they really nailed it! Usually I keep 1-3 items, this time I’m keeping all 5!


5) Quick & Easy DIY – I made a few personalized kitchen towels to show my love for wine, baking, and what else… monograms! Makes a great gift – check out my tutorial.

Have a good weekend!

  1. That fix looks amazing! Who is your stylist? I’ve only kept one item each time. Part of me is happy about that since I get to save some money, but I really want to make my wardrobe better!
