Five on Friday - December 1, 2017

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week! Can you believe it is December 1 today?! Where did the year go?! 


Today we brought Elliott to meet Santa for the first time! I was secretly hoping that he might be scared of Santa and have a great crying photo; but, he loved him so I guess that's just as good! 


We are in full on Christmas mode here now! We picked up our tree yesterday - we always get a real tree! After we got home from meeting Santa today, we put up all the decorations and got our tree all set up! I'm going to be listening to Christmas music every day now! 


Last week, my older son Damian brought home his first Report Card from Junior High School and I'm so proud that he made the Honour Roll! We had a bit of a struggle with school a few years ago; but, am just so proud that he is doing so well this year! (I certainly never made the Honour Roll when I was in school!)


It's time to make cookies! I saw these adorable cookies on tv of these little teddy bears that hold pecans or almonds in their arms in a hug and I instantly knew that I had to make them for a cookie exchange! 

So I put in this order on Cheap Cookie Cutters for the teddy bear and threw in a few extra things - a kitty, a lipstick and a nail polish bottle! I used to bake all the time, so when I have more time to bake again, I will put these to use! The teddy bear is way smaller than I thought so I think I will double up on the number of cookies for the exchange! 

So, November was NaBlogPoMo - National Blog Post Month and myself and a few fellow Canadian Beauty Bloggers challenged themselves to post every day for the whole month! I can't believe I managed to get it done! I hope you guys enjoyed the content and I realized that I loved how much extra makeup content I was able to get out! I think I'm going to take this as a lesson and be a little more relaxed in my posts - if I have makeup content I want to get out, maybe it's not a huge deal one week if I can't get a Mask Wednesday post up or something! I think I just want a little more balance on here, that's all!

I hope you all have a great weekend!
