Fab Friday Faves 12.11.15

Happy Friday my darlings!  Can you believe only one more Friday after this one before Christmas?  Actually I guess it is two weeks today, crazy!  I finally have a bit of a handle on my Christmas shopping, being so busy with all this house stuff made me completely slack this year.  Speaking of house stuff, Tuesday is finally the day!  I feel somewhat ready, I just worry that there is something major that we forgot to do or buy.  Oh well I'm sure it will all work out! Happy 3rd Anniversary (where has the time gone?) to my amazing husband tomorrow!   Alright, Everyone have a great weekend and enjoy my Five!

1. If you follow my blog, you know that my bestie Miranda came for a visit last weekend.  We had an awesome visit and so much fun!  Check out my post on it here A Florida Weekend With Miranda.

2.  I have a love for sunset and sunrises, so I have to include this beautiful Gulf of Mexico sunsets at Clearwater Beach and Dunedin Marina.  So beautiful!

3.  I have wanted a pair of Miz Moos for ages, and tried them on in the NYC store about 5 times, so when I saw they were having a 30% off Black Friday I had to have them.  Since Josh and I aren't doing Christmas presents really we agreed that I would order these from him and he would get a new pair of golf shoes from me.  I couldn't possible wait until Christmas so I wore them as soon as I got them on the weekend.  They are so comfy and so darn cute!

4.  During December I am all about entering in the 12 days of Christmas contests that I see on Facebook.  Last year I won a cute little cat food dish from one of my favorite cat rescues, SCAT in Saskatoon.  This year I won this awesome yoga mat from one of my favorite stores in Saskatoon, One Tooth.  So excited to get it when my parents get here next week.

I am sure most of you have heard about this, but I have been seeing this story going around Facebook and news outlets and it just breaks my heart and warms it at the same time.  This little girl lost her entire family in an arson fire in 2013.  She only survived because her dad shielded her with his own body.  She suffered burns to 75% of her body on top of everything else.  She now lives with her aunt and decided she had one wish for Christmas, to get enough Christmas cards to fill up a card holder that her aunt had bought.  Knowing that they would't get enough from just family and friends, the aunt turned to social media for help.  I sent my card off a couple days ago and if you wish to do so you can too.  Mail to:
PO. Box 6126
Schenectady, NY

American Greetings also set up a page that you can add your name to, and they will send out a card free of charge.  You can add your name Here.

Help give this little sweetie a big smile for Christmas! 

Today I am linking up with:


  1. Happy Friday, Tanya! I'm visiting from the H54F link up :) Hooray for beautiful sunrises/sets, time with your bestie, super cute shoes that you didn't have to wait until Christmas to wear, and your anniversary tomorrow -- enjoy celebrating! I hadn't heard about that precious girl's Christmas wish, so thank you for sharing!

  2. I totally did not know American Greetings would send a card for you! I had read her story and shared it as well but had not seen that part. I will have to pass that on. Thanks so much for sharing and have a great weekend!
