Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!

Today I'm sharing my Friday favorites but with a twist.  I'm sharing a few of my favorite Christmas things. 

Christmas movies

 There are so many Christmas movies out there that I love, but if I had to narrow it down to only 3, I'd pick...


Home Alone

& The Family Stone.

This isn't one I'd watch with my kids, but I think it's fun, and the humor in it cracks me up.

Christmas cookies

 I love a good Spritz cookie, but who doesn't, right!

My very favorite Christmas cookie is an Apricot tart.
 They are so good.  I always refused to try them as a kid, because I thought they looked and sounded gross.  What was wrong with me?!  I haven't made these by myself before, but I am hoping to this year.

Christmas traditions

Out of all of the Christmas traditions, my very favorite one is our family's Christmas morning breakfast.  My Dad makes homemade waffles and a really yummy brown sugar syrup.  Throw on some huckleberries and it's the best!!!  He always made this for Christmas and our first day of school.  Now I'm down to just Christmas, so I wait all year long for this breakfast.

We've had a busy couple weeks around this house.  I haven't blogged nearly as much as I've wanted to this month.  But life calls, and my blogging gets put on hold.  It's just the way it goes sometimes, but I'm hoping we'll settle back into our routine soon.

So tell me, what is a Christmas favorite of yours?



  1. The Family Stone is one of my fav holiday movies :) Chelsea @

  2. My parents used to fix a big breakfast every Christmas morning, then we'd open presents. While in the midst of a big move, we went to Shoney's. That has become our new tradition, since Shoney's won't mess up the kitchen at home! ;)

  3. We love Elf, Home Alone but I would have to go with Christmas Vacation...nostalgia ;)! Merry Christmas and I love a good Christmas cookie!

  4. Oh, those waffles look so good, add a side of bacon and I'd be a happy gal. I'm having a hard time doing my regular blogging as well. I guess it's the busyness of the season. Christmas blessings!

  5. A spritz cookie and coffee just go together this time of year. #breakfastofchampions. I love The Family Stone, Elf, Home Along, and Christmas Vacation is my favorite. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Christmas Vacation is another favorite of mine as well. So funny!

  6. The Family Stone is one of my faves too! Those waffles look amazing!!

  7. I want to watch the family stone now! Love it! And those cookies look awesome!!

  8. What a fun Christmas tradition! Mmmmm...waffles! Elf and Home Alone are the top of my list too. And myabe It's a Wonderful Life, Christmas Vacation, Love Actually and White Christmas. Who am I kidding? I like them all!

  9. Three great movie choices! I'd add Love Actually to the list. I need to bake more Christmas cookies this week!
