WooHoo!!! It’s Black Friday!!!

Disclaimer… I have lived 45.11 years without EVER seeing Titanic OR shopping on Black Friday (of Black ThursdayFriday) and have no intentions of breaking that streak. You can carry on now. 

I remember the one year that the Rooster bought me a naughty nighty for Christmas. Bless his heart he tried, but the problem is that he bought like a size 6the 2014 gift guide for moms and it just went downhill from there. Then there was the year he got me a bunch of giftcards – which is fine but doesn’t really fill the “I thought about you more than 5 seconds” requirement. If you are anything like me, you’ll try to give not so subtle hints so that you’ll at least get one or two things that you want for Christmas, but even that’s not fail-proof. So I’m hoping this gift guide will help get the point across that naughty nightys are NOT what you want for Christmas.

And if it doesn’t work for you, I hope it’ll work for me because it’s chock-full of things that I would LOVE to find underneath MY tree!! Who doesn’t want a VitaMix or kickin’ Kitchen Aid mixer? Making incredible tasty treats while you’re lounging in your Ugg slippers and PajamaGram PJs… and who doesn’t love candles.. especially candles that burn away cute little charms?!


So those are my recommendations for what would be really awesome gifts. Sorry if they were a bit “Kristen” focused but hey… I’m a hard cookie to please so if I like it, you would like it, right?!
