Affiliate links included. I am currently watching holiday movies on the Hallmark Channel (or Hallmark Movies and Mysteries). And I'm hoping for a Hallmark Holiday. It would be formulaic but in a good way. It always starts out a little rough, but it always ends up in the best possible way. Right now is my… Continue reading Hoping for A Hallmark Holiday
In less than 40 minutes, it will be Christmas Eve. This year has been slow going on preparation. First, I couldn't find one of my Christmas storage tubs - the one with our stockings and some other key decorations. We didn't get a tree until two days ago. The elf keeps forgetting to move (I… Continue reading Holidaze – 5 Reasons to Do Christmas Late
It has been a long while since I've done a Five Minute Friday and I must admit that I have missed the weekly process. This week's prompt is "now". Here goes... Now.

My DD is pretty… Continue reading Six Word Saturday – New year, New Focus

So, I had naked couch cushions strewn around my living room (sounds a little rated R)… Continue reading Day 42 of Thankfulness – Quiet Evenings

So, I decided to do a little plug for Ebates today and if anyone joins and makes purchases, I will get a "bonus"… Continue reading Make Your Holiday Shopping Pay!
I am joining in the Thankfulness Challenge over at Gods Growing Garden: In this, you post one thing you are thankful for each day for one year. I thought it seemed pretty kismet that I read about it tonight since our sermon at church today was all about not just being thankful in November (a… Continue reading 365 Days of Thankfulness
Christmas crash and New Year anticipation! Yup...I'm one of those people who seems to crash a bit emotionally after Christmas. So much build up, so little Christmas day.
