Friday Favorites-12.18.20

This afternoon officially kicks off CHRISTMAS BREAK for my family!  And to say we are pumped would be a bit of an understatement.  😉

To get the weekend started on the right foot, I have a fun dose of FRIDAY FAVORITES for you.  As always I’ve teamed up with Andrea and hope you’ll join us!

First up, I asked for some crazy Griswold Christmas stories over on Instagram and you guys delivered!  I’m sharing some of my FAVORITES!

Wait for it….

They look so GOOD!

This story was by far the most popular!  Apparently, we all have some spatial reasoning issues!

WHAT are the odds?!?

This is the EXACT kind of thing that would happen in the Slaughter House!

Jennifer channeled her inner-Clark for a school dress up day and looks AMAZING!

Our luck, we’d get the squirrel.

Total GRISWOLD move!

Thank you guys for sending all those in!  They were so fun to read and hopefully brought some Christmas cheer to you as well.  It always makes me feel better to know we’re not the only ones crazy things happen to…right?


A FAVORITE outfit for Christmas errands!


Please help me!  Do you have a great show recommendation?  Tab and I finished Yellowstone recently {and we loved it} but what should we watch next?   Please if you have a FAVORITE, share it with us!  We’ve never watched Ozark.  Should we try that one?  The Crown?  Anything else?


A few funny Christmas FAVORITES from the week…


Okay, I’m off today to go volunteer as an elf at the kids’ school!  Hope you have a great weekend!  See you Monday!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

    Love your errand outfit! The Undoing was SO GOOD and Ted Lasso is a good one too! First episode was slow moving for me personally but it was such a good show!

    My husband and I just watched Yellowstone too! Try Longmire on Netflix. It takes place in Wyoming has the western vibe but totally different show 🙂

    Loved Ozark and definitely recommend you binge it. It is addicting..definitely on the R side of things. Last season will be coming out later this year. Jason Bateman is amazing in this series

    Ozark is good! And there's a few seasons so it'll last awhile. But if you haven't watched any of the crown that's even higher on my list. My husband watched it with me, it's an interesting perspective on the royal family and history! Merry Christmas!

    I was going to suggest Ted Lasso as well! (Do a free month trial of Apple TV to view.) Such a sweet, funny show and the sports theme will keep you both into it. 🙂

    If you haven't seen The Queen's Gambit on Netflix, it is really good. And my husband and I really liked the 3rd season of True Detective on HBO. Each season stands alone and we had heard that the first 2 were pretty tough emotionally, so skipped and went with the 3rd. Soooo good!

    The Queen’s Gambit!! Or The Wilds. I know I told y’all those last night too but The Queen’s Gambit was shockingly good. Who would have thought a show set in the 60s about a chess prodigy would be my favorite of the year?! Not me! Totally is though. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Would definitely recommend Ted Lasso in Apple TV. My husband and I loved it. So original and so funny!

    I loved Ozark!! But just know that it is not kid friendly AT ALL and they say the F word A LOT. But it is so good. Can't wait for the next season and so sad that it's the last one.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!
    Where did you watch Yellowstone? I can't find it anywhere without paying for each episode on Prime.

    Ozark is definitely worth the watch! I'd also suggest Schitt's Creek if you haven't already seen it. Also This Is Us.

    My husband and I love Blacklist. There's a slow season in there somewhere, maybe 5ish?, but if you muscle,through it gets really good again.
