We've made it to Friday! Actually, this week went by fairly quickly for me. I really didn't have a whole lot going on this week to share with you, well I did have an interview on Wednesday that I'm waiting to hear on. I should know by the end of the day. Other than that I worked on school work, this semester ends for me today, or subbed. So instead of talking about 5 different things that happened to me this week I'm going to share 5 different holiday related things I'm loving. Linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites!
The 1978 live version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town by Bruce Springsteen is my favorite Christmas song by far. It HAS to be this version though. Not live in any other year. Not a studio version. Not Santa Claus is Coming to Town by anyone else. Bruce Springsteen live in 1978.
I have had this pinned on my DIY board for 3 years. I still haven't made it. Someday I'm going to. Not this year but someday. I have three tassles currently hanging on my blinker in my car. I have one from my HS graduation, my college graduation, & one from the year my first seniors that I taught graduated. I want to turn them all into ornaments like ths rather than just have them hanging on my blinker. Like I said, not this year because I don't even have my own tree but maybe next year I'll actually decorate wherever I'm living & do this.
Holiday invitations & cards from Paperless Post. If you haven't already ordered your Christmas cards/invitations, or even if you have those but want to do something for New Year's Eve, you can save 20% if you order from them through tomorrow. They also have a selection of holiday charity cards that you can choose from in which they will donate a portion of the proceeds to AIDS research.
I have a ton of recipe ideas on my drinks board on Pinterest that would be perfect for the holidays. However, if I'm being honest here ya know what usually happens? Beer. Beer & Rumple Minze. At some point over the holidays a bottle of Rumple Minze always finds it's way out of the cupboard. Sometimes it just gets passed around once or twice & sometimes the cap gets tossed. Someday maybe I'll class it up, throw a grown up holiday party, & make fun holiday cocktails like The Grinch or Merry Cranberry Margaritas.
You know you're an adult when... when asked what I wanted for Christmas this year I was at a loss. There's nothing super exciting that I really want. And even things that I would maybe want, like a fancy camera, I don't particularly need right now & know I don't have the time to devote to learning/using. The top two things that popped into my head were money for bills & money for furniture. Other than that my list is boring. If I want something I usually buy it right then & there. I have a long list of books, some sweet pens, & a new journal so I can start a bullet journal in 2017. Other than that nothing. Money. I want my bills to go away & to be able to have furniture when I move into my new place in Feb. I have my eye on either that sofa bed or one very similar from Amazon.
What are y'all wishing for this Christmas?
