friday favorites: the kinda Christmas related edition

Writing Friday Favorites during the month of December is just...hard. I want only to do Christmas related posts, you don't only want to read Christmas related posts, and blah blah blah here we are

So welcome to a Semi-Christmas Related Friday Favorites. 

Favorite Christmas Song
I lied. This is in no way my favorite Christmas song, but dagnabbit! Why can't I stop singing it all the time?! Kelly! Just stop! 

Favorite Food
My father is way into cast iron skillets. When I say way into, I don't mean it in the way you are thinking. You're thinking, Wow, Emily's dad must be really obsessed with cast iron skillets! No, that's wrong. My dad is a whole, new, way higher level of obsessed with cast iron skillets. I am 100% okay with this obsession because he made cast iron pizza for dinner last night. The most perfect food to eat after a full day of Pilates training. Thank you, tranversus abdomimus, for working hard so I can eat pizza. 

Favorite Pilates Move
messy hair, and so do not care
Climb A Tree.
Take my advice and don't try this at home when you don't have proper Pilates equipment. But when it's 10 pm on Thursday night, and you don't have a picture for your Favorite Pilates Move section on your blog for Friday morning, you improvise by letting your mom hold down your leg and the couch arm be your short box.
Now, let's go climb a Christmas tree!

Favorite Thing You Should For Realsies Know About
One word, five million happy faces: Swagbucks
If you don't know about Swagbucks, then...well that's probably not that weird. It's a website where you can take surveys, watch videos, and so on and so forth all while earning these magical things called Swagbucks. Your Swagbucks transfer into gift cards which transfer into buying lots of Christmas presents! Yay, Swagbucks. Can't wait to gift all the cool swag I've gotten all thanks to your bucks. 

Favorite Christmas Tree
My parent's house, a.k.a. the Brady Bunch look alike home, is a strange house with very tall ceilings. The tall ceilings come in handy during the month of December when the 12-ft. Christmas trees are calling our names. Growing up we always wanted the biggest tree ever, but I think this year's officially wins at the vertical challenge. It is tall and beautiful and majestic and amazing and I'm so happy a Pilates weekend brought me to Georgia just so I could stare at this tree for a few days. 

Happy Two Weeks Until Christmas Friday!
Linking up with Karli and Amanda

Funny you mention the cast iron skillet, I just got one and was reading online about how you have to "season" it first...I had no clue! Maybe your dad can do a post on skillets! Lol

Oh I LOVE that Kelly Clarkson song, too. She is fabulous! Your parents' tree is awesome, and now I reeeeeally want to try pizza in our skillet. My favorite to-go pizza is pan pizza from Pizza Hut, so I know I'd love that!

I love the 12-foot tree! The taller the better. And I love the colorful lights. Also I'm going to be singing that song for the rest of the day. And I'm not upset about it.
