12 Days of Christmas: Treats

  Every year we (like everyone and their dog) make treats to give out for Christmas.  This year we decided to change it up a little and do different things.  Everything is covered in chocolate!  We figured we couldn't go wrong with that.  Here is some of pictures.  I would have more but it was hard to not get chocolate on my phone.

12 Days of Christmas: Ornaments

  Do you need a last minute Christmas gift idea?  These ornaments are really easy to make.  All you need is scrapbook paper cut into strips, clear bulb ornaments and glitter (if you want).  Roll your strips into circles and put them in your ornament.  Pour some glitter into it if you want and place the top back on and you're done!  Easy.

12 Days of Christmas: Ugly Sweaters and The Village

  I forgot to post yesterdays 12 Days of Christmas so I will post two today.  My first one is our ugly sweaters that we jazzed up a little and wore to our friends ugly sweater party.  We had a BLAST and loved seeing everyone wearing ugly sweaters.

  I must say that the sweaters are very comfortable.  Ugly, but comfortable.

  My second post is our village that we started this year.  Finally after several years of talking about it we started to gather pieces.  We have quite a collection for our first year.  Fully equipped with an ice skating rink and a tree lot we are well on our way to an entire metropolitan city.  It's hard for me to pick my favorite piece.  At night when they are all lit up it reminds me of Disneyland.

  Do any of you have a village set up in your home?  What is your favorite piece?  Let me know.

12 Days of Christmas: Lights

  Every year in the town I live in they decorate downtown with a ton of Christmas lights.  Just within the last few years they have really added to it.  It was remodeled and is a great place for the community to have.  I just thought I would share one of the pictures I took while my husband and I walked around and enjoyed all the lights.

  This picture really doesn't do it justice.  There is Christmas music that plays while you walk around and look at all the lights.  We look forward to it every year.

12 Days of Christmas: Santa Letters

  Last year my husband's work put up a box for kids to send their letters to Santa and I got to be the Santa to write back.  This years turn out has been amazing and it absolutely warms my heart to read these letters.  As I read these letters I can feel the Christmas magic that I felt when I was a kid.  Not that I have really lost that but as I have grown up it has changed a little.  That feeling of believing in something so magical that it totally consumes you.  If you are looking to lift your Christmas spirit a little write a Santa letter to a little kid.  Maybe your niece or nephew, a friends kid or even your own.  You might be surprised how much you feel your spirit rise.

12 Days of Christmas

  By now you can probably guess that I am a little absent.  I was going to have a jam packed blog post month but I decided that I would do something different.  For the month of December I am going to post every day, starting Friday, up until Christmas.  For 12 days  I will be sharing what I am up to, what I am enjoying and what is inspiring me.  I hope you enjoy it.

November Favorites

  My favorites post would have been a video if my battery didn't die.  Oh well.  You will find that it's a wide variety of things this month.  So, let's get started.

 My #1 favorite this month is jeggings!  Guess where I bought them...Walmart for only $11.97!  They are well made and come in a ton of colors.  They are thick enough to keep you warm and thin enough to wear in the summer.

  My #2 favorite this month is a Libman hardwood floor mop.  First of all the cleaner that comes with the kit is AMAZING.  We have laminate hardwood flooring and we are always looking for a good cleaner and this is the best one.

  My #3 favorite is a nail polish.  Fergie's Wet n' Wild in Glamorous.  This is a perfect gold glitter for the holidays.  It has large and small glitter.

  My #4 favorite is Redken's 28 Hairspray.  This hairspray doesn't weigh down my curls and it helps keep down any fly aways if I have any.  It doesn't dry rock hard and it holds all day long.  I love it!

  Try some of these things out and see if you like them as much as me or let me know what is your favorite thing this month.  I am always interested in trying new products.  Hope you all are having a good day.
