Five Things On Friday + A Giveaway!

Friday, November 20, 2015

ONE. I confess, I am totally into celebrating Thanksgiving, but I'm secretly waiting for it to come and go so I could decorate and be extra festive! I do pretty well the whole beginning of the month, but once we are down to the week before Thanksgiving, I get a little excited. 

TWO. I have been working on a Wishlist/On my radar post. Every time I see something I add it to the list. I want to upload it but I keep adding more things! 
Some of those things: 

THREE. My baby brother and his wife Betsy are having another baby! What a blessing! He is deployed in Turkey right now, and I feel really sad that Betsy is in England with my nephew Yoshua, without him for the holidays. How cute is their announcement photo they took right before he left for deployment. 

FOUR. I keep watching our vlogs from our vacation this past August! We tried getting tickets for February vacation to go back but the prices go up for school vacation week. How rude! 

FIVE. With the holidays around the corner, I wanted to host a few quick giveaways on a few of my  social media forums. I've seen bloggers do giveaways for birthdays (mine was on October 27th), blogiversary's (mine was on October 2nd), but I thought I would wait until we were closer to Christmas and make it a party!

I'm giving away a $50 Visa gift card. I chose the Visa so that you could use it on anything your little heart desires. Enter below and follow on my social media to see where I'll post my next giveaway. a Rafflecopter giveaway  

-Open until Friday, November 27th 12pm EST
-You must be 18+
-Winner will have 24 hours to respond with address

Happy Friday!

  9. Their announcement is so cute! And I've totally been wanting Hunter boots but it never rains in LA :( I did hear that Costco had them for $80 and if you don't have membership, you could have Nordstrom price match. Not sure if that's still a thing, but worth trying!
