Five on Friday - December 18, 2015

Oh boy - are you ready for the last weekend before Christmas?!?  I have a feeling this is going to be a wild one.  I'm still not done shopping.  As a matter of fact, I desperately need to do an inventory to even know what I have and what I need!  Every year I think I'm going to get it all together early and then life happens.  But hey, as long as I'm ready before next Friday nobody will really know the difference so I'm still thinking I'm in good shape.  Two words - Amazon Prime.  My best friend this week.

Before I head out to start my gift inventory, here's my five for this week ~

1.  Anne Taintor, Inc. Luggage Tag
I'm in love with these adorable luggage tags.  Raise your hand if you would love one in your stocking.  My hand is up.  You can purchase this with Amazon Prime, so if you order today it will arrive just in time to slip it in those stockings.  I'm also thinking these would be adorable for a gift at girls weekend.  Click on over and take a peek ~ there are quite of few designs to choose from.

2.  ScentSicles
One of the things I used to miss about having a "real" tree was the pine scent throughout the house.  Well, a few years ago my friend Carol surprised me with these ScentSicles.  The fresh scent of live Christmas tree fills your house.  You can hang them in your tree and enjoy the scent of Christmas just like if you went to the woods and cut down your tree yourself.
scent for your tree

3.  Pentatonix That's Christmas to Me CD
Eric and I had the pleasure of hearing Pentatonix live this week in a concert and I'm even more hooked on them than I was before!  They sounded AMAZING!  Now I want to add their Christmas CD to my collection.  The group offers a little bit of everything on this $8.00 CD by providing a combination of classic holiday songs, modern favorites and a one-of-a-kind holiday mash-up.  Yes, I want this playing on our stereo when we celebrate Christmas this year!

4.  Sisters
I know almost everyone is going gaga over the Star Wars movie coming out this weekend, but I'm super excited to see Sisters with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.  The two of them together just make me laugh - and who couldn't use a good laugh every now and again?!?  If you can't find me under all the Christmas wrapping paper, check the theater because I might just abandon my duties and head to the movies to catch this comedy.

5.  I like this way of thinking....

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I've got lots of stuff in the works ~ we're headed to a new bakery tomorrow morning, hopefully my brother Ernie and his family are coming over Saturday night to see the lights with us at Our Lady of the Snows Shrine, and I have book club at my house on Sunday.  Fun, fun, fun!  Oh, and there's finishing the Christmas shopping too!  Better get to it ~ see you soon!
