Five on Friday

Hello lovelies and Happy Friday.  I've being going through this week just trying to survive.  We had a great Thanksgiving and trip to see Jason's family.  Unfortunately we came home with a sick baby which was pitiful since he has never really been sick like that before.  Work is crazy and I'm hyperventilating that we are majorly into December and the shopping days are ticking away!

My goal is to get some presents wrapped and under the tree this weekend so I will feel a little better.  Hope you have a great weekend and stay warm!

--ONE--

How was your Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday?  I took advantage of a few online deals for Christmas gifts on Monday.  Since we were out of town I didn't get any shopping done on Black Friday - out or online...except for this sweatshirt from Hello Apparel.  At 50% off and free shipping, the deal on Instagram and was too good to pass up.  I purchased it on my phone while nursing...boy how I get myself into trouble!

 
This will likely be my uniform leading up to Christmas paired with skinnies, tall boots and gold jewelry.

Bad news: I lost my phone this week.  I'm 99% sure I left it on the roof of my mom's car when I was installing a car seat for her.  Good news:  I upgraded to a new iPhone 5s in gold and loving it.

The Purifoy household is officially decorated for the season (except the outside...who knew Christmas light stakes for the ground would be so hard to come by), Jack's room included.  Perhaps I've gone a little overboard this year, but I don't care.  Be sure to check out Houston Moms Blog early next week to learn more about the advent calendar I hung in Jack's room. 



We need to upgrade next year from our skinny "apartment" tree, but it works for now and looks pretty from the window outside.


"Just Because" flowers from Jason this week

Our Christmas cards arrived yesterday so I'm hoping to get them addressed and in the mail by Monday!  Here is a sneak peek from the photos we took.  For the card we went in the opposite direction of your typical "perfect smiling family" picture!  I'll post it once the cards have it the mail.




--FIVE--

I'm blogging over at Houston Moms Blog today about ways to give back during the Christmas Season.  Some of the post is Houston specific, but most of it is pertinent to anyone!
