snowflake-gray-lineI remember Christmas stockings being so basic when I was a kid. Red fuzzy sock with a white fuzzy cuff with your name written out very carefully in Elmer’s glue and sprinkled with glitter.
Tada! You had a stocking.
It’s a little bit different today…
snowflake-gray-lineWe hang stockings for our dogs…
And for our cats…
Sometimes we hang our dogs IN our stockings…
I wouldn’t advise this.
And sometimes we hang our cats IN our stockings…
I’d like to see how they pulled this off.
I like the personalized stockings.
For the G.I. Jor or G.I. Jane in your life or if you happen to be married to a “doomsday prepper” or Sylvester Stallone.
For the lit’lΒ buck-a-roo.
Girls night out?
Guys night out?

I think this one is super cute.
But you wouldn’t get much stuff in it.
This one is kinda’ cool for the wine connoisseurs..
Or just the wino.
Then there’s this guy.
He’s got the right idea.
And my all time favorite stocking???
cma-st-christmas-storyLove, love, love this movie!

snowflake-gray-lineAnother late post which means I’ll be making my blogging rounds late but I’ve got the coffee brewing and I’m heading your way!

I had plans to do some shopping today and got as far as Joann Fabrics and their forever long and winding road of a line and said screw it. I made a quick stop at the grocery store, which really was super quick, and then I came home.
I’ll head out again tomorrow as soon as everything opens and try this whole day all over again.
Best laid plans, eh?

I hope your weekend has started out much better than mine. I feel sooooo stinkin’ behind!

  1. Hahaha! I loved this post! All those different stockings were fun to look through. I am the same way when it comes to lines of any kind. I avoid the winding lines like the plague. I would rather shop really late than get stuck in a massive crowd. Today was a bit of a slow day for me too. I think all the goodies and yummy food I’ve been enjoying all week have caught up with me so I was dragging… So much that I sat in a Starbuck’s line for at least a half hour to get my peppermint mocha fix. Isn’t it ironic ;)? I hope you will have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

    1. Thank you Alana. πŸ™‚ I guess I just always find myself in such a hurry to get here n’ there that I just have no patience for lines of any kind. Kudos to you for your half hour wait. I would’ve been hitting the local supermarket for some peppermint creamer and calling it good! Hahaha πŸ™‚

  2. Cute Christmas stockings! I suppose you made yours, right?
    The last line I stood in was when we bought Yak-backs for the grandkids – guess that dates me, huh?

  4. I’ve never had a Christmas stocking. Never. Why? I have no idea. I used to decorate to beat the band, but Christmas stockings weren’t in the mix.

    I hate to shop all the time, but this time of year I REALLY hate to shop.

    Have a fabulous day and I hope you get everything done today. ☺

      1. We really don’t even do Christmas anymore. We have our meal, usually a filet roast with all the fixings. No decorations, no nothing. We are just not in the Christmas mood anymore. It’s not a Grinch thing, it’s just we’re tired and it’s time for the young to go all out. πŸ™‚
