High Five for Friday!

Hey all! Welcome to another week of High Five for Friday with Della, TiffKatie and I!

1. We've finally all gotten over the stomach bug that we've been passing to each other the last week. And it feels so good to get back to our normal routine, including me getting back to blogging more! 

2. We have our Christmas tree up! This is my first year to have a real Christmas tree, and we actually went and cut it down ourselves which was so much fun. 

3. My friend and I started a handmade business in the last few weeks! We're still starting out slower, so orders are just being taken on Facebook, but it's been such a great experience! We're excited to get some more products completed and eventually get our Etsy shop up running.  Go check out Mama Bird Studio today! 

4. I finally found Home Alone on DVD! I honestly never really think to look for it until Christmas rolls around, and luckily it was right there smack dab in the front of an aisle display at Walmart.  I have a feelig it's going to be watched quite a bit this holiday season. 

5. I'm still on the hunt for Juliet's Christmas outfit. I feel behind this year, I already had family photos done and ready to send Christmas cards at this point last year.  Hopefully by the end of this weekend! 

How was your week? I'd love to hear!

  2. Best wishes with the new business!! I actually have been lucky to catch Home Alone & Home Alone 2 on HBO this holiday season, but it didn't' dawn on me that I still only have that movie on VHS!! I have to get it on DVD!! =) What a wonderful tree!!

    Have a great weekend! Thanks for the lovely link-up! Melanie | Blog:Toots + Dill

  3. I saw that gingerbread hat on Facebook and loved it! So so cute! I totally feel you on being behind...Lucy has a Christmas dress and we have one family photo taken, but I wanted to get some of just her for the card as well and simply haven't found the time. I'm hoping to get our cards printed and shipped sometime next week, too. Key word: hoping. Happy weekend!


  4. Congrats on your store! You guys have such cute stuff! Your tree is beautiful. Have a great weekend!

  5. That little gingerbread knitted hat is adorable!!! So sweet! And I'm so jealous of your Christmas tree. We have a fake one, but I grew up with a real one. I pine for a real one (no pun intended haha). So glad you all are doing better!! Hope you had a great weekend!
