Favorite Things Friday

TGIF!  I'm on vacation today - yahoo!  Christmas shopping is the plan.  All by myself shopping.  No Kiddo, whose feed start to hurt after the first hour (with all her swimming and volleyball you'd think she'd have more shopping stamina).  No My Guy asking after the first hour "Aren't we done yet?".  I really don't have that much to get, I've already done a fair amount of my shopping via the Internet.  But I'm looking forward to one of those rare days when I'm on my own.  So I can dilly dally if I want.  No arguments over where to have lunch (or when to have it).  I really do enjoy my family, but with the break neck pace we've been on the last month, a day where I get to set the pace is definitely welcome. 

So that's my favorite thing this week.  Wander over to Quilting in My Pyjama's to check out the rest of this week's favorite things.

Have a blast, Kate!! To be perfectly honest, I *love* meandering through the shops at Christmas time, especially with most of my shopping done! It allows me to feel very generous with my good cheer! I hope you've had a *grand* day!! :)

Hope you're having a blast and finding some great deals as you shop on your own. I'm jealous. ;) Happy FTF! ☺

Enjoy! Sometimes solitude is absolutely necessary!

I hear you sistah! I love and treasure my Fridays off because I get to be completely alone. I can do what I want , when I want.

Christmas shopping on your own is always more productive too.

I hope you enjoyed your day and knocked off that Christmas shopping.

That's a great favorite thing...my daughter spends Friday's in school, so it's my one completely free day a week, and I sure love it.

Sometimes we all need to do our own thing at our own pace. Glad you are getting the break you need. Great favorite thing!

I'm so with you on this one. I love to shop on my own when I can do it at my own pace. Don't need anyone's bad advice on what looks good on me, I know!!! I always make better decisions on my buys when I'm on my own !!!
Cheers
