Countdown to Christmas

Okay, I had ZERO intentions of posting today, but Angie tagged me to play along in this fun Christmas inspired post. I had no choice but to share some of my faves for the holidays. Plus, it doesn't require much thinking on my part. My brain is a little mooshy today. So here goes.


Favorite Winter Nail Polish
Hands down "You Don't Know Jacques" from O.P.I. 
I am on my second bottle now. 
Who ever finishes a bottle of nail polish? 
This girl.

Favorite Winter Lip Product
Okay, I don't have a favorite "winter" lip color. 
I use this year round. I can't live without it. 
I think I bought it for the name, but now my lips are addicted to the tingle. 
Best gloss ever!

Most Worn Winter Clothing Piece
Um, scarves. Does this surprise you??? 
It's out of control. 


Favorite Winter Candle
Twisted Peppermint from Bath and Body Works. 
I have burned through almost FOUR of the three wick candles. 
I wish I could get away with this scent all year. 
Favorite Winter Beverage
The peppermint milkshake from Chic-fil-A. 
Holy heaven. Anything peppermint and I am there.

Favorite Christmas Movie
No question...National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. 
I am I the only one who thinks Clark Griswold is sorta hot???

Clark Griswold Christmas Tree

Favorite Christmas Song
Anything from Micheal Buble. 
That boy has it goin' on too. 
That face. Those eyes. That voice. Yum.

Favorite Holiday Food
Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats. 
I think we are seeing a trend here with the peppermint.
Anyway, I haven't made these yet, but I'm pretty certain they are going to become my favorite. I am gonna try and conquer it this weekend. I'll keep ya posted!

Favorite Christmas Decoration
Besides the obvious being my tree. 
I must say I am pretty much in love with my  
DIY glitter reindeer I made a few weeks ago. 

What is at the top of your Christmas List?
As cheesy as this sounds....I really don't want anything in particular. 
Would I love a new camera?
 Of course. 
Will it happen? 
I am 99.9% sure the answer is no.

What are your plans for the holiday this year?
Lots of running around. 
From here to there. 
From there to here. 
We have, oh, about 5 places to be in a matter of a few days. 
But I wouldn't want it any other way.

So, there ya go. I don't think I wrote a post this fast. EVER. talking about my favorite things comes oh so naturally to me. Maybe I should do this more often.

Oh, two giveaways goin' on right now!
Click on the pretty little pics to enter.

I am out.
Have a great weekend, kids!

Sounds like you are peppermint obsessed like me! I have that twisted peppermint all over the house, soap, cream, candles..yum.

Sarah Tucker said...

LOVE and ADORE Michael Buble! Mmmm. And the trick on the camera is just repeat that you want it 1000+ times then say it is for the blog...blah blah blah...and BAM. Camera. It worked for me...I have a few other tricks up my sleeve if that doesn't cut it :)

Have a fabulous weekend!

JUST got my nails done this am and got YDKJ :) I love that dang color more than anything for winter!

Also, I loved your DIY project and that candy peppermint stuff looks like the bommmb!

Jeans and a Teacup said...

Yeah, I don't know if I've ever made it through a whole bottle of nail polish! I don't know why....well, it's probably because I keep buying new shades! And I love peppermint too. Ok, maybe not as much as you! But I do love minty things. :-)

Hi Shanna!
I found you on pinterest with the hashtag #patternmixing. Turns out we both have a love for that! Anyway, just wanted to pop in and say hello! Love the blog. =)


Always Maylee said...

I've always wondered if anyone has ever gone through a bottle of nail polish before. Thank you for answering one of my life long questions, haha! :)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend love!

Katie said...

I am going to have to try that peppermint sounds amazing!

Did you hear that Bath and Body Works has the 3-wick candles on sale for $8 today? I may or may not go buy more that I don't need haha

Anna @ The Things I'm Learning said...

I love this polish, movie, and cd! I just got a new camera for Christmas, but started using it already so I can take good pictures during the holidays.

Sheena Rae said...

Clark Griswald? Sexy? Those two words do not belong in the same sentence...LOL!

CC said... The Chick-fil-A milkshake is like crack to me. I could have them twice a day and be happy. Yum. And the only bottle of nail polish I have ever finished is OPI Lincoln Park after Dark. Those OPI people make awesome nail polish. :)

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

So your poop smell like candy?

Faith and Love said...

I've never had a chic fila milkshake looks like Im missing out! And Ive never finished a bottle of nail polish before haha

I have that Peppermint Twist candle and I love it! Nothing like having your home smell like a candy cane during Christmas!


My-cliffnotes said...

So I think it's safe to say you like peppermint :), which is good cuz I do too ;)

Marsa said...

i've worn beanies a lot this season :)
scarves are my fave too

Ashley said...

Oh yes...Michael Buble. Love him and that album.

I had to think about that..but I'm pretty sure I've never used an entire bottle of nail polish. That's good though!!

Janna Renee said...

Scarves make my LIFE this time of year. They complete every outfit and keep me warm! I do not think Clarky is hot, but he is a lot better looking than I saw him in younger years!

I love that polish color and I LOVE Soap & Glory products! I've never tried the lip gloss though - looks like I will have to make a trip to Sephora!
