Fun Findings Friday #149

It’s Friiiiiday! This week has completely flown by. I got home from my amazing European adventure (lots of posts will be coming on it!) super late Monday night and have been trying to play catch up on life/sleep while getting back into my normal routine. But with it being the week before Christmas, it’s been anything but normal! At work, we’ve had lots of Christmas celebrations this week and spent an afternoon volunteering at a local organization, which is the best feeling in the world!

I’ve also been scrambling to finish up my Christmas shopping (mostly online), but by the end of the day, I’m just ready to put on a Christmas movie and get to sleep (oh, jetlag)! This weekend I’m pretty excited because my mom and I will be doing our annual weekend-before-Christmas tradition, seeing It’s A Wonderful Life at my favorite old theater in town, and my best friend and I will be heading to Universal for some Grinchmas, Harry Potter, and a performance by Mannheim Steamroller!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping? How will you be spending the last weekend before Christmas? Today’s fun findings include some helpful Christmas things you might need over the next few days. Enjoy!

2015 Holiday Shipping Deadlines

If you’re planning to mail some gifts to loved ones for Christmas, keep this super handy shipping deadlines chart that Katie created nearby! The deadline for getting things shipped out has passed for certain shipping types, but others are quickly approaching! Also, today is “free shipping day,” so if you order online, you can get your items delivered at no additional cost in time for Christmas!

A Fuller House Teaser

This week we got a glimpse of the Netflix original series, A Fuller House, the sequel to Full House, which will be ready to stream at the end of February! It’s been said that MK & Ashley won’t be in the show, but I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for a surprise appearance. Can’t wait to watch this one and see the gang back together!

    I am sooooo excited for Fuller House! Also, I’m soooo behind on mailing gifts/cards that I’m pretty sure at this point people are getting New Years gifts. haha! My team at work has been celebrating this week too with crafts and games and it’s really made the week before Christmas vacation (two whole weeks!) a blast. :)

    Thanks for sharing the shipping chart. I’ve decided that I’ll check out Fuller House. It’ll be great to see them all as older persons. Looking forward to your travel posts.

      No problem! I can’t wait to see it either. I hope some other shows from back in the day make comebacks too!

    Great shipping chart…and cute ideas for gifts. I wish I had asked for a Fitbit Surge for Christmas.

      Thanks! It’s not too late, you can still ask for one!

    I’m so looking forward to A Fuller House! I’m sad the Olsen’s don’t seem involved but I was obsessed with that show as a kid!

    • December 19, 2015 / 9:33 AM

      Me too! I hope they end up making a surprise appearance, even if it’s just for an episode!

    Can’t wait to see Europe posts!

      Thanks, Kathryn! I can’t wait to write them and relive the trip!

    I can’t decide if I’m more curious because of genuine interest about Fuller house or if I’m more curious because it may be a trainwreck. I will be tuning in without a doubt!

    The Fuller House trailer made me cry!

    Can’t wait for these Europe posts! Travel recaps are always so fun to write (and read!). And I’m days late but am finally going to check out this Full House trailer…have a feeling it will not disappoint!
