Favorite Things: Amanda & Meredith

Quick favor to ask...

I entered our holiday mantel into a Facebook contest hosted by Design Star Emily Henderson (one of my favorite bloggers, by the way). Anyway, I need your votes! If you could take one minute to vote by clicking here, I will totally love you forever.

Have you ever heard of a Favorite Things Party? The idea is that you and a group of friends get together, with each one bringing their favorite thing to the party. So if the party included you and four friends, you would bring four of your favorite things under a certain price point. Each person presents their favorite thing and explains why it's their favorite, and then everyone goes home with four new things!

Anyway, I love this concept. My best friend and I decided to do it for each other this year, buying one another our favorite things (up to $30). We haven't exchanged our gifts yet, so I can't reveal what I'm getting her just yet. Instead, I asked two of my other friends to tell me their favorite things under $25 so I could share them on the blog. Maybe one of these will spark a last minute Christmas gift idea for you! Plus I just love hearing what other people like because chances are good that I will like it, too.

Amanda is a preschool teacher, wife and mother of two (soon to be three) who happens to be one of my dearest friends. She loves shopping and getting good bargains almost as much as I do!

Meredith is a young mom and wife with great style. She always achieves high style without spending a lot of money, which is something I love about her.

Have you ever had one of these parties with your friends? If you want more ideas, head on over the party hosted by The Nester, where more than 50 people have shared their favorite things.
