Early Christmas, Winter, Etsy & Soup….Five on Friday


And ready for the weekend! But not before my favorite thing about Friday (besides the whole weekend thing)….Five on Friday!


Early Christmas Presents!

O.M.G. I can NOT brag on my hubby enough this week! He ordered & let me HAVE my Christmas present…early! HEL-LO New MacBook Pro! Here’s to my first post on the new baby! 


Winter Layers. 

If you’re my istafriend you saw my new headband this week! I LOVE IT! Not so much the wintrerness that comes with wearing it (it was -4 degrees this morning. uhg.), but it’s super comfortable and WARM! I won’t even begin to tell you how many layers I actually have on underneath the jacket(s)!

I also won’t tell you how many attempts that it took to take this picture…ha!


Etsy Shop!

As I posted here, I revamped my Etsy shop, Gingerly Styled, & officially announced it to the world! Check out my new handmade items & let me know what you think!


Christmas Cards!

With most of the Christmas cards out for delivery (we had to order more…oopsey!), I can finally post this year’s beauty! It’s definitely at the top of my list of favorite pictures of the family.



This chilly time of the year most certainly calls for something to warm the soul.
There are two things that come to mind….Coffee & Soup!
So this week I am going to be sharing an easy peasy delicious crockpot potato soup!


-Southern Sytle Hashbrowns

-Box of Chicken Broth

-Cream Cheese

-Stick of Butter (optional)

-Crockpot Liners…of course!

Mix all together & cook on low for 6-8 hours….Enjoy! 

(Yes…it’s really that easy!)

Sorry for the excessive selfies & photos of myself this week but I couldn’t resist! 

Thanks for dropping in for my Five on Friday & leave me a message so I can check out yours too! I wish you all a wonderful weekend & can’t wait to hear from you! 

Frankly my dear…until we meet again!

    Your Christmas card is super adorable!!! I'm so excited about your new mac and even more excited about your Etsy shop! I've been meaning to sit down and check it out ever since you posted about it earlier this week! I have, and I love it! I've also been craving soup this week, so I will be trying that so very soon. I've never heard of crock-pot liners… um, genius!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
