Happy Friday and one week until Christmas! How are you going to spend this last weekend before the holiday? 

B and I are going to do one of those holiday lights drive-thru shows and I'm pretty excited about it! I also have some presents to wrap and might try my hand at baking some Candy Cane cookies. I know they'll be a challenge but it'll probably be delicious whether I succeed or not lol. 

Before looking ahead, let's take a look back at last week's recap...

What I Bought

I continue to be on an unintentional shopping freeze - mostly because there's nothing that I need right now. A couple of years ago, I could never imagine getting to this place in my life. What a blessing, right? 

I did buy just a couple of things. 

Last week I ordered our Christmas dinner. B and I have a special tradition where we celebrate Christmas with just the two of us, to keep the holiday (mostly) stress-free. We typically dress up and enjoy a nice Christmas dinner out somewhere. 

To keep our tradition alive and support local businesses, we placed an order for a pre-made Christmas dinner. I'm looking forward to lots of delicious food and an egg-nog cheesecake! 

Outside of that, it was time for a new mascara so I went with my holy grail combo of this and this. I cannot recommend tis combo enough!

Last Week's Buys - Yay or Nay?

This top and these jeans came in - win and win! Both fit fantastically and feel great. 

My Express exchange also came in. I ended up just returning these because I didn't love the way they looked. These came in and they're SO fun! These came in and they're super cute but still somehow still a bit too big? I'm not positive if I'm going to exchange them again because I'm not sure if it's worth the hassle. Regardless, they're still really cute!

Reading Right Now

Okay. I made some more progress in this book this week and I can now safely say that I'm enjoying it! It's a slightly heavier read than I typically like during the holiday season. The plot and characters are interesting though, so I'm committed and going to see this book through. 

Watching Right Now

It's been a really good week for TV. 

B and I started watching Empires of New York, a CNBC original. It's a miniseries documenting 5 titans of New York and their struggles with power, money, and fame during the 1980's. It's incredibly interesting and very well made. I'm excited to watch episode 4 this week. 

Also, we're finally starting to watch The Last Dance on Netflix. We've both heard nothing but good things about this miniseries. We're only two episodes in, but so far we're loving it! 

Of course, I also had to throw a holiday film into the mix. I'm so happy that White Christmas is on Netflix! It's been a few years since I gave this one a watch and it's even cuter and funnier than I remember. Danny Kaye is such an underrated Hollywood Golden Age comedian!

Listening to Right Now

We interrupt this previously scheduled Part 3 of what's on my Christmas playlist this year because Taylor Swift dropped ANOTHER new album! WHAT?! 😍

I never realized this but it turns out, I'm a way bigger Taylor Swift fan than I knew. Apparently, I'm part of the top 2% of the T Swift listeners on Spotify! 

There's almost nothing that could take me away from my Christmas music obsession during December. But come January? I see Taylor and Ari on constant repeat in my Winter playlist. 

In the meantime, here are a few other holiday songs I'm loving this year: 

This song by David Tobin and Jeff Meegan because it just encompasses all of my festive feels. 

This song because... Babs! And because I missed it a few years back when this album first came out.

And this because I'm still not over how much I love this song!

Stay tuned for my a few of my all-time fave holiday songs in next week's post!

Enjoying Right Now

Is it even the holiday season without Christmas cookies? 

I'm darn lucky because both my Mom and my Mother and Sister in law's love to bake Christmas cookies. So B and I are just so thankful for this little stockpile of Christmas cookies we're able to indulge in this year! 

Thanks for stopping by today 😀
