Happy Friday, friends! I'm feeling Christmas-y (the long weekend off from work really got me this time around--is it Christmas break yet?) and somehow managed to find a lot of great Christmas-themed pins and links for this week.

I mean, you can never plan and celebrate the season too early, right?

5 tips for shopping online this holiday season. 

Gold will always be my favorite.

Just in case you need some blog prompts for this month.

A sweet, sweet mountain elopement. 

Mini Christmas trees on your Christmas tree? Yes please. 

Love the simplicity of these Christmas trees, too. 

It's time for a holiday bucket list!

Kids and Christmas--what could be a better combination?

Such a cute (and simple!) DIY ornament idea.

36 ways to enjoy this Christmas season.

And 3 ways to wrap oddly shaped presents. 

What a fun Christmas wreath idea!

How to spice up your hot chocolate.

And some festive phone wallpapers.

Have a great one, friends!


  1. Oooh the photo! And so many good finds this week! Love those little tree ornaments and the festive phone wallpapers. My phone definitely needs one of those ASAP.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I just realized.... I don't think in 4.5 years of blogging I have ever needed a list of blog prompts. Not posting every day sure helps that, and I think I get so inspired by other bloggers I read and things that happen to me in my daily life that I feel like I have too much to write about sometimes. Anyway, enough about that. Hope you have a great weekend! I'm flying to San Diego tomorrow for a girls weekend, and I'm super pumped!

  3. Cool shot!!! I need to get my own Christmas lights up ASAP. I've never invested that much in Christmas decor before, but now my husband and have this idea for making our house look like a gingerbread house, and our excitement levels are waaaaaaaaaaaaay up!

  4. So pretty sure that your 'Bits and Pieces' is my favorite thing!!! I LOVE reading these posts, you always show me to some of the coolest places!

  5. Thanks! It's another recycled photo (taken last year) but too good not to share again. :)

  6. Thanks! That's actually a photo from last year but I saw it and it was too Christmas-y not to share again. :)

    And I need to change up my wallpaper, too! It definitely needs some Christmas-ifying or whatever you call it!

    Hope you have a great weekend, too!

  7. Ooh, that's awesome! I wish that was the case for me. I mean, for the most part, I come up with my own blog prompts/post topics from inspiration, daily life, etc., but there are times when I'm just stumped and will look at these kinds of prompt ideas to at least get my mind thinking (and to kind of reset it, too).

    Have a great weekend, too! Your weekend sounds like a blast!!!

  8. Oh my goodness, that's a brilliant Christmas decor idea! I'm ALL for gingerbread houses (such a huge part of my childhood!) and I'd love to see what it looks like when you put it all together!

  9. It's good to hear you like them as much as I do! I love finding different links/reads throughout my week and so many of them are too good not to pass on! That, and as a reader, I LOVE these kinds of posts, too. :)

  10. Well I might have to steal the idea for my blog in the new year ;)

  11. Do it! I look forward to reading your posts!

  12. Trees on trees? So cute! Great wrapping tips too... and those phone backgrounds!! LOVE!

  13. Everything in the blog world is all things Christmas right now so there were too many great links not to share! :)
