3 Things Thursday – Week 35

It’s Thursday again. It’s hard to believe it’s the last one in November and then we are into the holiday season. Before we know it, it’ll be 2015 and that is pretty amazing. But really, I’m just getting ahead of myself, so here is this week’s 3 Things Thursday that I want to share with you.

1. Minted Holiday Cards
I can see that Christmas is already on many people’s minds as they are shopping, making travel plans and getting family photos done for their holiday cards. I recently found out about a fabulous website, Minted.com that makes these amazing personalized and unique holiday cards so I had to share it with you guys! You can customize the photos any way you want and personalize the message inside. And the cards are seriously luxurious looking. So if you are planning on sending holiday cards then I would recommend checking them out, especially because they already have their Black Friday sale happening which is up to 20% off their holiday cards. Gotta love a sweet deal!

2. For the Love of Forts
My kids have been taking turns being sick for the last couple of weeks so we’ve been having a lot of inside days. One of their favourite things to do has been to build forts. This latest one lasted four days until I reclaimed the living room. We hung out in there, read books, played games and one night I actually gave them dinner in the fort. Hopefully they remember these days and how awesome of a mom I was 😉 It’s funny how my siblings and I loved building forts when we were young too. I guess it’s one of those things, like Monopoly, that is timeless.

3. Black Friday Shopping
I love a good deal and with tomorrow being Black Friday, there are going to be a lot of greats sales happening. I will be heading to Coquitlam Centre to do some shopping but I’m guessing it’s going to be pretty crazy! I was happy to get this Black Friday Survival Kit from Coquitlam Centre with lots of great tips on how to have a successful shopping experience. There is water to stay hydrated, snacks-on-the-go, peppermint halo to help with the oncoming headache and lots more. It seems like a great plan to me! Check here for all the tips to have a great Black Friday.

  1. Snacks and water are so important when it comes to shopping! I always remember them for the kids, but forget for myself. However, the ultimate shopping experience would be childless, in my opinion – and that survival kit looks awesome 😉 Great post, Salma!

  2. Black Friday can definitely be brutal so I am glad you have some tips. I can only imagine how crazy it will be out there this year. Thanks for sharing your 3 Things Thursday. Have a great rest of your week.

  3. I do love all 3 of your Thursday things. The cards are very nice, and something I wouldn’t mind doing with my new little grandson. The forts, of course, bring back tons of memories.! I loved doing that as a kid. And the shopping kit you got is pretty cool too. I hope your shopping day wasn’t too stressful. 🙂

  4. Oh no! You’re going shopping on Black Friday? 🙂 I agree with Amanda. I sit at home and order online as I cannot stand the long lines at the store or the bickering people do to grab the items they want. It’s a mad house in the stores and I would rather side step all that commotion! 🙂

    I LOVE FORTS! I used to build them as a kid too, but I think it’s one of those timeless activities that you can never tire of, even at my age. 🙂

  5. Thank you for introducing me to Minted! Those forts are so cute – hope they are still up 😉 That black Friday Survival kit looks awesome. I have my Cyber Monday kit ready to go (slippers, PJs, chai, and almonds!)

  6. Your Black Friday survival kit seems like it would’ve been a life-saver! Always good to keep hydrated and fed (those food courts must’ve been crazy!).

  7. Wow ..Mint cards look adorable. Maybe I should give it a try and talking about black friday sale – This might be the first ever year when I didn’t did too much of shopping reason being, kids were sick 🙁 Hope i get to do more shopping next year.

    Well written !!
