Fabulous Favorite Friday

Happy Friday everyone! It is hard to believe that this is the last shopping weekend before Christmas. We are in pretty good shape fortunately, so we aren't having to stress. We can sit back and catch a few Christmas movies and eat some Christmas cookies I got from the cookie exchange.

A Major Award & Give Away
My first pick for this Fabulous Favorite Friday is the movie "The Christmas Story". This is the story of young Ralphie who wants a Red Rider BB Gun for Christmas. I love this movie because it has a lot of heart and it really captures the magic of Christmas for kids.

If you are familiar with this movie, they have ornaments at Hallmark commemorating the movie. This year I know they have the leg lamp ornament. It comes in a minature crate. So, the movie and the ornament bundled together would make a great gift for someone. We have a tradition that we watch the marathon on TBS. It starts at 8 on Christmas eve and they run it all day Christmas Day.

And in honor of the movie and Ralphie's father's major award, I'm doing another give away. I have another box of the new Chex Mix Turtle bars to send out to you! These would be a great snack to eat while watching the movie. In order to win just leave a comment on this post. I will be taking comments until midnight Monday, December 22nd.

My second pick for this Fabulous Favorite Friday is the Venus Embrace razor. I recently tried this razor and I love it. It is a disposable razor and is a bit pricey as far as disposables go, but it is well worth the money. This is the first razor I've used where I didn't nick my knees when shaving. I usually end up either cutting my knee or around my ankles and not once have I done that while using this razor. I also felt like I was able to use this one longer than other disposable razors I've tried. I just recently purchased a new one at Wal Mart. They had a kit where you got the razor and it came in a cute little makeup bag with a small can of shaving cream. So, this could make a great stocking stuffer for someone you know.

I hope y'all are taking time to enjoy this holiday season. Remember to take time to stop and smell the Christmas cookies. And aww heck, eat a few while your at it. Check back on Monday. I hope to have some Christmas lights pix to share with y'all.

We love that movie! DH's mom is a huge fan especially. You should see her start giggling when Ralphie's mom tries to get his little brother to eat "like the piggies eat" LOL We got her that ornament last year for Christmas. :) Great pick. Will have to try the razor. :)

Shell, I really look forward to seeing your Friday posts! It's so nice to check in and see what you're up to with your boys. How does Sawyer like Logan -- has he reached that "okay, that baby can go back where he came from now" phase yet? LOL.
