Like that title? It takes care of 2 birds with one stone... doing a Five on Friday but still incorporating my favorite things. This is how to blend two things into one magical post.
1. Favorite Post: The Florkens "Why we aren't buying gifts this Christmas"
Find the post right HERE
I hate sometimes how out of hand Christmas can get with gift buying. People think we're joking when we say we spend thousands on Christmas. THOUSANDS. Do you know how many different ways that could be used in a more helpful way instead of gifts that I'm sure next year, no one will even remember? It aggravates me so bad sometimes... so I love these two for this post.
2. Favorite Recipe: Pumpkin Pie
This is the pie I made for Thanksgiving that didn't involve sugar. It is so yummy. I love that she gives you options too with your spice & your thickness of the pie. I wanted a thicker pie so I used less evaporated milk as well. I seriously want to make another one of these this weekend just because. Well, I do have cool whip left over so it needs SOMETHING to be eaten with it...
3. Favorite Christmas Craft Gift
Aren't these the cutest!?!?! & who doesn't love candy? These would be great to make a few extras just to hand out to people for a quick gift... or leave for like the mailman or to give to a cashier on a busy day.
4. Favorite Funnies
My reaction when my managers try to tell me how awesome the new office is:
How I feel when I think of all the Christmas wrapping I have to do:
5. Favorite Video: All is Well
My goodness, Carrie Underwood is just all things adorable with that baby bump. & that bump doesn't affect her voice one bit. It's angelic. Add in one of the all time fav Christian recording artist/writers, Michael W. Smith (who still is a notch behind my Steven Curtis Chapman) ... this just gives me goose bumps.
What are some of your favorite things this week?
