Friday Favorites

*This post contains affiliate links.

We survived another week. It felt like a really long week for me since Rory is traveling for work. Plus the girls decided to wake up a few times per night and that meant I was the only one to console them. I soooo hope a good night's sleep is in my future tonight.

Onto Friday favorites.

ONE. Earlier this week I started wrapping presents for the girls, from us and Santa. Since the girls birthday is 4 days after Christmas, I have to buy more gifts and split them between the two holidays. I thought I had bought so much more for the girls, but after splitting it, I felt like I needed to buy more things. I already knew I needed stocking stuffers, but now I have been looking for more gifts and let me tell you, they have everything. Ha. It has been a bit of a struggle. I know, they don't need many gifts, and time with us is the best gift, blah blah blah. I get that and we spend a lot of time with the girls, but with two celebrations so close, I want to make sure they get to celebrate both adequately.

Anyways, I bought a few items on amazon earlier this week and I am hoping to buy these Vtech kids cameras today on the amazon toy sale. Please let them be a part of the sale. My girls love to take photos with the iPhone, so I think they will really love these.

TWO. If you have toddlers that love Disney princesses, go to JC Penney's for their toddler princess dolls. They are the cutest and they are on sale right now. I picked mine up for $11.99 each yesterday. Normally $24.00. I got the girls Belle and Snow White. I wanted to get Aurora since she is my favorite, but she looked creepy.

THREE. Since Rory was away, I had him go shopping during the evenings for Christmas gifts. When he told me there was a Tory Burch store, I asked him to go in and see what the sales were like. He told me the shoes I have wanted were on mega sale and this never happens. I told him to buy them for me and I will give him money. An early Christmas gift to myself. Ha. But in all fairness, he bought himself something during Cyber Monday even though we said we wouldn't. I can't wait to get these beauties tonight.

FOUR. The girls are having their Christmas party today at school. In an email I received earlier this week, it asked that we dress the girls up in their best clothes or Christmas pjs because there will be Santa photos. I seriously wish I could be there to see if they have the same reaction to Santa as they did 2 weeks ago. Maybe they will be better since we are not there? Who know, but I can't wait to see the photos. I dressed them up in Christmas pjs this time since I didn't want to ruin their dresses with arts and crafts, cookie decorating or the games they will be playing. So stay tuned this weekend for another Santa photo...if they can capture one.

FIVE. I had a couple people ask me about the teacher gifts I was giving this year and unfortunately they are not what I had planned. I planned to do something similar to last year's (here), but changing a few things. Especially since the girls are at a new school. I ordered everything and then we got a newsletter asking for cards with the children's photos in them and then you can add money if you would like. While I like the fact that they can chose what they want with the money, I would have spent more on the gift than the max they are allowing in the cards. But if you want a cute idea, this is last year's teacher gifts.
