This Week on Marlborough 12.19

^ holiday traveler

It's less than A WEEK UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!! But who's counting right?

This week we were in full holiday swing here on Marlborough. I made a list, checked it twice, wrapped all of our gifts, and even made some myself. We will be celebrating the holidays with josh's family this weekend and then with my family next week, so we had to be super prepared in advance on the gifting front this year. But I am really happy now that we have all the gift-buying and wrapping done so that next week we can enjoy relaxing around our our Christmas tree, hanging stockings, and listening to holiday music after work instead of racing around trying to find gifts before Christmas Eve. What about you - do you buy Christmas gifts all year long or are you more of a last-minute shopper? I also think I really started to hone my wrapping skills this year, so thanks to that and some amazing paper I scored at HomeGoods, our presents are looking pretty great, if I do say so myself.
And here's a few fun links from around the web this week...
  • The prettiest gift wrapping ideas
  • In love with these woven stockings. 
  • A Beautiful Mess regrammed my photo and I got pretty excited about it. 
  • Impressive DAD reflexes
  • John Krasinski & Emily Blunt owned Jimmy Kimmel in a holiday prank war. 
  • My favorite holiday ad of 2014. 
  • UPS grants a holiday wish for the most adorable little boy. 
  • Since it looks like none of us will be seeing "The Interview" anytime soon, here is a complete recap
  • Josh introduced my to K. Strass on Youtube this week - have you heard of him? He basically tricks news stations into letting him come on their morning shows to talk about teaching kids in school how to yo-yo, but then he's just a weird guy that can't yo-yo. So funny! Watch this video and this video
  • The Skimm raises over $6.25 million in financing. Easily my favorite (and most useful) newsletter. 

Have a wonderful holiday festivity-filled weekend!
