Friday Five

With only two weeks until Christmas, I still need to do some serious Christmas shopping.  This is causing me a little stress since I am not sure what I even intend to purchase for a few people at this point.  Of course, I have no problem finding things for myself.  Here are a few things I'd like for myself: 

1.  Delancey Herringbone Tight - I love a good herringbone pattern and these would be nice to wear with a variety of dressier tops.

2.  Pearlized Mock Neck Sweater Dress- most sweater dresses wouldn't do much for me since they'd hug all the wrong spots, but I really liked this pearlized one which seems a bit looser.

3.  Plaid Yourself A Merry Little Christmas Dress- I have absolutely nowhere to wear a cute Christmas dress but I do like this one.

4.  Tissue Turtleneck- my turtlenecks have long needed a rejuvenation.  I usually opt for a very plain neutral color, but this one would be fun.

6.  High-Rise Bistretch Slim Leg Pants- and who doesn't need a good pair of red and black plaid pants?

7.  Feliz Navidad Graphic T- I have a cute JCrew Factory plaid skirt that this would be perfect to pair it with.

8.  Merry Everything Pillow- my pillows could also use some sprucing up.  I hate to buy a pillow that I could only have out for a few weeks each year but I do love this one.

9.  Twas the Night Before Christmas Puzzle- we've started getting out puzzles after Thanksgiving and this one might be a good challenge for us.

10.  Books and the City - I've found another podcast to listen to (as if I didn't have enough already).  I'll listen to pretty much anything about books, and this also includes some NYC info as well, which I find interesting since I'm experiencing withdrawal after getting to visit NYC.

That's it for me this week. What's caught your eye?

That Santa puzzle might frustrate me LOL

I say, get that adorable pillow. Also, NO on that Santa puzzle. Hahahaha. I have no patience.
I wish you lived closer so we could do some safe shopping in small little indie stores. I thought I was doing pretty well but when I wrapped stuff I realized I hardly bought anything. Now my daughter says she wants to shop for her friends. In a pandemic. I had to go to Target to get a phone charger and it was a mad house. I had to get it at that moment because my beloved Google phone died in a spectacular way. I decided to go with an iPhone this time and you know what? They don't come with chargers or ear pods anymore because of the environmental impact! I bought the same phone for my daughter two months ago and it came with both so I didn't check and couldn't finish doing the manual setup without the charger and her charger is different than what is recommended now. A bit of a pain. All that to say that Target was like Black Friday. Crazy. I left immediately.

Also, my husband's gym decided in the middle of a shutdown to open and he went this morning. Not good. I practically begged him not to go but he went anyway.
