It’s Friiiiiiiiday! This week has been kind of insane. My mom and I returned from our England/Scotland trip early Monday morning (thanks to weather delays, rude airline employees, and missed connections – ugh) but I jumped right back into the madness catching up on work + blog stuff, Christmas shopping, and dealing with some jet lag (first world, problems, I know). I’m totally ready for some relaxation + Christmas fun this weekend!
Lights in Bottles
I found the cutest glass bottle at Marshall’s last month and was inspired to add some cute string lights to it. It’s quickly become one of my favorite decorations and will definitely stick around through all of winter! The only downside to the lights I found is that the battery pack sticks outside of the bottle, BUT earlier this week I discovered these awesome battery-operated cork lights for bottles that let you just pop the plastic cork out to switch the lights on and VOILA! No more wires/battery packs sticking out. Kind of brilliant!
If you haven’t downloaded the HQ App (use code “rgault” when you sign up!) you’re seriously missing out. Nearly half a million people (the number keeps growing every day) meet around 3 and 9 p.m. each day for a live trivia game of just 12 questions for the chance to win a pot of money if they’re the last one (or last few) standing by the end of the game. Admittedly, I usually only make it 4 rounds, but it’s a lot of fun! One of these days I’ll make it to the end and win! Who’s in it with me?!
Christmas Jammies 2017/Rewind With Us
I first stumbled across the Holderness Family in 2013 with their viral “Christmas Jammies” video (which NEVER gets old)! Since then, they’re constantly churning out fun + usually musical videos of their family. My favorites are always the year-end with a recap of the year. And I absolutely LOVE how they handled it this year – not only including all of the memorable things that happened to the members of their family in 2017, but also big moments that all of their fans sent in as well!
