Thursday Favorite Things #418

Happy Thursday, and welcome to another Thursday Favorite Things link party! I can’t wait to see what you have to share today.

I hope your week has been fun and productive.  I’m happy to say that, not only did I finally get our holiday decorations (mostly) up this week, I’ve also lost about 2 1/2 pounds on my brand new Weight Watchers plan. Slow and steady loses the weight, right?

On with the party!  As a reminder, please remember to leave a comment with your link number, and please pin from the original blogs.  By adding your link here, you are giving permission to use your photos for features related to the party.

Here are my features from last week’s party:

An amazing hot cocoa bar from Bird’s Party

Gorgeous holiday apple punch, from My Recipe Treasures

Delicious roasted sweet dumpling squash, from The Kitchen and a Latte

Some cool vintage North Pole maps to download for free, from Picture Box Blue

And, finally, some wonderful stamped and embossed tags,  from Idim in Berlin

It’s time to party my sweet friends. You can add three links until midnight on Saturday. One each day or all at once. Please invite your blog friends and social networks to join us.

  1. Yay for your incredible ability to lose during this season where everyone else is packing on the pounds…you go, mama! I'm sharing holiday themed stories today at #65, #67, and #68 covering a pistachio cookie I developed that is a crinkle style and gluten free, decor inspiration from a farmhouse style shop, and smart dog gift ideas paired with darling quotes. Hope you enjoy and hope you stay gentle with yourself this week. Peace to you right where you are.

    1. Thanks, Michele! I'm hoping to hold steady this week and not gain anything, but I'm not sure if I'll lose this week! I'm going to have a few Christmas cookies (but not too many.) Peace to you too, and I hope you're enjoying these festive days.

  2. Thank you so much for featuring our Holiday Apple Punch. That was a nice surprise. Thank you too for hosting the party. Have a great week. Our links this week are: #75, #76, & #77.

  3. Thanks so much for hosting!! My link ups for this week are #100, 101 and 102 !! I hope you have a great weekend!!

  4. Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 12-2 to 12-6 on my blog. On Tuesday morning were Peppermint and Chocolate Mousse Bars. Wednesday was my Grasshopper Thin Mint Cheesecake. And wrapping up the second week of Christmas baking is a decadent Cherpumple Cake. Enjoy!

  5. Thank you for featuring me 🙂 So glad to hear that you are doing great on your Weight Watchers! 2 and a half pounds is a great first week – you don't want to lose weight too fast. Slow and steady is the healthiest way to go with weight loss – too fast is not good for the body.

    I am at 32 and 34 this week, hope you have an amazing week!

    1. You're welcome, Dawn! I agree about slow and steady being the best. I am hoping to hold steady this week, because I am going to let myself have a few Christmas cookies, and then I'll get more strict again right after Christmas! I hope you have an amazing week, too!

  6. Congrats on the weight loss, Pam… which version are you using? I'm sticking with Blue for now, and I started back to meetings this past week. I'm at 170, 180, 181 this week!

    1. Thanks, Julie! I'm using the Blue. I haven't tried the others yet, have you? I may have to look at the others and see the differences. It's nice to have a WW buddy! Thanks for sharing your links with us!

  7. Looks like I am late to the party this week! I am sharing my Red and Gray Christmas Tree (#207), a new runner I worked up for my Christmas bathroom (#208), and a WIP [work-in-progress] of a beanie – almost done! (#209).

    Best of luck with the weight loss! It was my goal for this year to lose 30 pounds, and I got lazy, so it never happened, but definitely on my list for 2020! Would love to see some healthy recipes shared here 🙂


    1. Thanks, Alexandra! My goal is 30 pounds, too. WW sent me a free recipe book when I joined, and it's nice to have so many WW recipes in one place. I haven't pinned too many yet!
