Five Things Friday

Popping in today with a fun little one for Friday. Different than Friday Favorites because these aren’t necessarily favorites, just things. 🙂

Let’s start with promotions first because I do not want you to miss out!

1. There is still time to enter to win a $100 Visa gift card. In the spirit of that post, which is sponsored by Medronic, I’ve decided to use my earnings from that post to give back to my community. So check it out!

2. For local readers–rosanne parket photography is offering a $50 discount on half hour mini sessions to my readers! The $125 (normally $175) includes 3 digital files. So if you liked our family pictures, give her a call to schedule for 2015!

3. The things I’m most excited to give my kids for Christmas this year are books. I’m sitting on these three gorgeous books and I cannot wait to read them together.

The Beauty and the Beast one is just gorgeous and I can’t wait to flip through it with Emme.

I know that initially they’ll be more excited about their new toys, but once things quiet down Christmas morning, I know they’ll really enjoy these.

Last year I read in the newspaper about putting a book on every bed at Christmas. The idea is that Santa leaves a wrapped book on each child’s bed while they’re sleeping and that’s the first gift they get on Christmas. I started it as a new tradition in our home last year and am looking forward to continuing it.

4. I was selected as a Nuun Ambassador for 2015! I’m excited about this because it’s what Doug uses to hydrate on all his rides. It’s a great product with good ingredients and I’m happy to spread the word!

5. I keep meaning to write about how our Elf on the Shelf thing is going. For now I’ll tell you that our “Cutie” took an unexpected trip back to the North Pole and we haven’t seen him in about a week now. Not sure when he’ll return, but I think we might see him again before Christmas.

Happy weekend!

What Christmassy things do you plan to do this weekend?

  • Congrats on the ambassadorship! This weekend I will be making Christmas cut-out cookies with my daughter, Goddaughter, and good friend. Super excited to see the girls in action. 🙂 Oh, and wrapping presents!

  • Congrats on the Nuun Ambassadorship! My husband really likes Nuun as well. I actually need to go get some for stocking stuffers today 🙂
    I love the book on the bed idea! My best friend and I send a book in the night before Christmas package so they have a new one to read that night. My mother in law also LOVES books so she sort of goes crazy with buying them for holidays. Which is a good thing!

  • Congrats on the ambassadorship! I’m also going to be a Nuunbassador in 2015. I’m hoping some of us can meet up at various events during the year.
