Three on Thursday - Weekly Favorites

This post may contain affiliate links.

Welcome back to Three on Thursday, a weekly list of three things I'm loving at the moment that I think you should do, try, or buy.  If you're interested in past weeks and more recommendations, you can find those here.  If you make your own Three on Thursday list, please share it in the comments so I can check it out.


Ninja Blender John really wanted a blender for Christmas.  He likes to make smoothies and protein shakes, really.  But he has other things he wants to use it for.  I was looking out for a decent blender but one that wasn't outrageously priced, because I don't know exactly how much he'll end up using it.  I'm not paying Vitamix prices for something that gets taken out of the cabinet once a month!  I ended up getting this Ninja because the price was great and it also came with the food processor option, which I think he'll end up using soon too, because he hates chopping peppers and onions but loves making chili.  And it has the blender cups, to make single serving smoothies, which is perfect.  I was going to save it for Christmas but I also wanted to test it to make sure I didn't need to return it, so we opened it as soon as it got here back in November.  He's used the cups a ton, so it's already proving useful.  We both really like it, it works amazingly well and fast.  And everything is dishwasher safe, thank god.  Very easy to use and clean.


Michael's Ribbon.  I love wrapping gifts, I'm just really good at it.  I always get my ribbon at Michael's, because they have it on sale this time of year and have the widest variety to choose from.  Ribbon is harder than wrapping paper.  Paper is easy, as long as it's not too thick you can make it look great.  But ribbon has to be just right, otherwise it frays at the ends when you cut it or the bows can look strange.  Michael's never lets me down.  So if you haven't gotten ribbon yet for your gifts, stop in here.


TBOX.  The Twelve Bars of Christmas bar crawl is Saturday!  I can't wait.  Tara will be here tomorrow and we're dressing up as Elsa and Anna, with Megan and Billy joining us as Sven and Olaf.  It'll be great.  I know I have a lot of Chicago friends who read this blog, so if you'll be doing to TBOX too, let me know so we can meet up somewhere.  We're starting at Brickhouse, but we never miss Underground, Houndstooth, Merkle's, or Dark Horse, so find us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  You can also join me on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.  In addition to minimalism and organizing, I love all things 'real life' so use the hashtag #notentirelyperfect on social media so I can see your beautifully unstaged life.  On the top of the side bar to your right, you can follow me on Bloglovin or subscribe via e-mail to be alerted to each new post.
