Also exciting this week - I am going to have The Blog Baton tomorrow, Friday the 6th. Don't know what that is? Find out here, follow along, and please please please like some of the pics I post? I don't ask for much but nothing will be worse than holding the baton and having no likes. It's Friday and you won't want to pay attention at work anyway. I have some fun food plans in the works if that will entice you any...
Now, I bet the title of this post grabbed your attention, and sadly, I will not be doing any giveaways today. After seeing an item on Instagram that I thought would make a good gift, I went to urbanoutfitters.com to try to find it. I have never really shopped there but I do like to check it out when I'm near one because they really have cool stuff. As I was looking for the item in question (National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation pint glasses that have since sold out), I kept scrolling past things that made me think of bloggers in my life. No, not family and friends, but online friends. You guys are a big part of my life too! So, I thought I would share what I saw as well as include a gift idea for any blogger you might be looking to buy for this year. Bonus: I may just have helped you meet your new favorite blogger. You're welcome!
This isn't a post sponsored by Urban Outfitters or any of the bloggers below - just my real thoughts while online browsing!
All images but the cookbook from urbanoutfitters.com
So first, if I was buying a gift for the always honest and sometimes slightly traumatic Kathy (read her post on childbirth, then commence never having a baby), I would definitely include this snowman card. No woman uses the word boner the way she does.
Then I saw this cool book and thought of Jess - I have already asked her about twenty questions about being a vegetarian (she has a post on this but I CAN'T find it!), but I'm not sure if she has Trader Joe's in her area or not. I love that place, so I bet this would be awesome for her!
My sweet friend Joey mentioned to me one day that she
really likes totally hates the phrase "like a boss." So now, anytime I can slip it into conversation, I tell her that I am doing things like a boss. Eating lunch like a boss. We have matching rugs because we shop like a boss. She would love to drink her coffee every morning like a boss - I just know it!
I think Steph has a graduate degree in both finding perfect someecards and knowing when to say eff this ess (still keepin' it PG-13 here, y'all). I totally thought of her when I saw this (also - go check out her giveaway for $25 to a charity of your choice!)
I could get all gushy about Heidi and how I feel like I have known her forever when we haven't met but that might be weird for her. She is one of my many cat lady friends and I love this so I think she would, too. I would get it for her in addition to two one-way tickets back to Houston (or anywhere in Texas, I guess) so her and her husband can live here and we can let the kitty marriage between Bauer and Fancy finally happen.
I first learned about the Supaboy on Kathy's blog above, but when I saw it again I thought of Nadine and Ashley (come back, friend!). They both love video games and I would even love one of these if my mom still has my Super Nintendo games somewhere!
And finally... because I don't want to leave anyone out... how about a Selfie for all my blogger friends? Someone can hold the phone and someone else can hold the button? I don't really get the point of this so I think I'm missing something but if there is one thing bloggers like besides coffee and wine, it's selfies. So picture me like Oprah giving an imaginary one to all of you! Selfies for everyone!
This is from Oprah's "You get a car!!" moment in case anyone wasn't a huge fan of hers!
Do you find yourself thinking of blog friends nearly as often as real friends, or do I just need an extra hobby?
