Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.
Now that the year is almost done, my workload is pretty light and I still have a few vacation days to use up by the end of the year. So, I have a feeling December is going to be a breeze for me, because I plan to have 4 day or less work weeks for the rest of the year.
Thankfully, I’m pretty much done with my Christmas shopping, which I attribute to having a small list and catching some great deals during Black Friday. I still have a few more items to get, but I put myself on a spending freeze until the 15th. I did this for 2 reasons; because that’s when I paid AND the last big sales before Christmas hit. This is my yearly perfect storm.
My plans for the weekend are pretty non-existent, which will nice following this past weekend. I have a few shows on Netflix that I want to watch and I finally feel it’s okay to start watching Christmas movies. I’m sorry, but I don’t like watching Christmas movies pre-December. Even this past week, it felt premature even though Thanksgiving was over. This also explains why I haven’t done any gift guides, yet.
Speaking of the gift guides; I do have a few I’m going to share in the upcoming weeks. I have to admit that I thought about nixing them this year, because “gift guides” can feel a little boring a diluted. So, I had to find some ways that I could enjoy making them feel refreshed and updated. I’m excited!
Here’s to a great weekend and finally being able to indulge in Christmas cookies and movies in front of a lit Christmas tree!
