Friday Favorites- A little bit holiday edition

Welcome to another round of my Friday Favorites!  Let's jump right in!

Number 1:  The Polar Express!
Sunday night we put on our jammies and took a ride on the Polar Express!  This was our 2nd year going and it was even better than last year! Sooo cute and sooo much fun!  This year we went with a group of friends which made it that much more special!  If you have the opportunity to take your kids on the Polar Express, I highly recommend it!  Such a great way to kick off the holiday season!

He INSISTED on wearing his fedora and spiderman sunglasses to meet Santa

Not everyone was happy to see Santa!  :(

Happy again :)



Number 2:  North Pole Breakfast
OK, I had never even heard of this until Andrea posted about it on her blog.  But now I am fully on board!!!  I am so excited to put this together and make this a special tradition for my kids!!  I know they are going to love it... I mean, what kid wouldn't love a super sugary breakfast made by a magical elf?!?!?  My plan is to have this ready and waiting for them when they wake up on Black Friday!

Seriously, how cute are these letters?!  Thanks so much to Roxanne at RoxannesDesign (etsy shop) for making these for me!!





Number 3:  These cute diffusers!!
I was roaming around Pier One on Sunday and found these little gems.  Aren't they adorable??  And only $5.95 each!



Number 4:  The Dollar Store
Yeah, this is kind of a weird one.  But honestly, I have never been one for shopping at the dollar store.  I can probably count on one hand the number of times I have been in one.  Well, if only I had known what I was missing!  LOL  I happened in there yesterday to look for some cute and cheap little trinkets for the North Pole breakfast, and also for a Christmas Cheer exchange I am participating in.  WOAH!!  They had so much cute stuff!!  I got all this for like $20!





Number 5: Jamberry holiday gift sets
Yes, I am a Jamberry consultant but honestly, this isn't a shameless plug for sales (well, maybe a tiny plug).  I LOVE this holiday gift set!  I ordered one for myself I love it so much!  If you are interested in ordering one (or ANY Jamberry products- the wraps are Buy 3 Get 1 Free!!)  stop by my website at www.onlinejamswithkim.jamberrynails.net  and choose Kim's holiday party at checkout!




Well friends, that's it!  My 5 favorites of the week!  But before I go, I just want to wish you ALL a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  I hope you have a beautiful day with your families and get a chance to reflect on all the things you have to be thankful for.  Oh yeah, and have a DELICIOUS meal!!!

  1. Hey lady!!! Ok we have a Polar Express thingy down here too but its like $160 for the four of us to ride it for an hour. I'm like hmmmm? Plus its like two hours away. I may just have to stick with the regular old going to the Nutcracker! I love all your Dollar Store finds. I was really hoping we'd be in our house so I could go Christmas Crazy but ummmm lets just say I doubt I get to this year. So I'm going to live through your blog for my Christmas happy ok????

  7. Kimberly, A terrific Five. Love the Polar Express, its so magical for children and adults alike. Yes, doesn't the dollar store have amazing choices- I buy all my Christmas wrap there every year. And the elf on the shelf, we gave it to my grandson last Christmas where my youngest daughter proceeded to move it around in all sorts of creative ways- it was some of the most fun our family had in years! Now 8, my grandson refuses not to believe in the Elf on the Shelf, the twinkle continues.

    1. Thanks Peggy! Sometimes it gets a little tiring figuring out where to move that elf, but it's worth it to see the kids' excitement!
