Anyone else’s elves coming tomorrow morning?? I know some of you overachievers have been elf-on-the-
Has anyone watched the new series, Homecoming, on Amazon Prime? It started out as a podcast that I listened to a while back and was recently developed into a show starring Julia Roberts on Amazon. I loved the podcast (it was like an old radio show- a drama played out one episode at a time), and the show was even better! It’s directed by Sam Esmail who also directs Mr. Robot (another favorite of mine). It’s in a very similar style and super creepy- kind of Twilight Zone or Hitchcock-esque, and so, so good. It’s about the Homecoming initiative, a program to re-acclimate soldiers to civilian life after deployments. But, there’s much more to it. Definitely binge-worthy!
Last year I started making sweet treats to give as holiday gifts, and am planning on doing the same thing this year (sorry for the spoiler, all my kids’ teachers!). I thought this three-ingredient Brown Sugar Shortbread looked super easy, but also delicious! There are also so many good variation suggestions in the comments, and I’m planning on making a few batches to wrap up as gifts (and maybe a few for us to snack on too :)). The recipe is also in this cookbook (which looks amazing).
I have been searching for the perfect hoops for years and finally found a pair that I am in love with! My friend Ebone’ is a Stella & Dot Stylist and was at our Holiday Marketplace back at the beginning of the month. I grabbed these from her and have worn them over and over all month. And they’re on sale right now for under $30! The perfect Christmas gift!
Hunters Shmunters, I am in love with these cute little ankle rain booties!! Best part- they’re half the price of our other favorite wellies. Putting them on my Christmas list!
This weekend we’re taking it easy tonight, headed to a Christmas party tomorrow (with Santa!), plenty of football Saturday afternoon, and Gracie has a SOLO in our church Glee Club performance on Sunday morning! So undoubtedly, we’ll be singing the second verse of Away in a Manger from now until then. 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
