Once a Year I love this time of year. I love the lights. I love the snow. I love the decorations. I love the food. I love the drinks. I love the dessert. I love the cheer. There is just something about this time of year that puts a certain mood in the air, a… Continue reading On the 20th day of Christmas…

Gingerbread House I've never been one to bake, or cook, or... well any of that stuff! :p Whenever it came to holiday cookies, holiday desserts, holiday meals, or anything food related, I stayed away... FAR away. Hee hee! I'm a terrible cook. I'm that person that burns toast, ruins pasta, and turns lovely looking cookies… Continue reading On the 19th day of Christmas…

Decorations! WHEE! I know, I know. More decorations? YES! This is America! We don't stop decorating until every INCH of the house is covered in glitter, lights, garland, ornaments, figurines, etc, etc, etc. And when I say every inch, I mean every inch! We change our hand towels to Christmas towels, our hand soaps to Christmas… Continue reading On the 18th day of Christmas…

Frosty the 'Creepy' Snowman Of the many movies on my to-watch list for this season, 'Frosty the Snowman' is a classic. Every one has to watch it. It's one of those that has become a staple in the holiday season what with snowmen being built outside, cookies shaped like snowmen, snowmen decorations. Frosty is definitely part… Continue reading On the 17th day of Christmas…

People really love getting into the Christmas spirit. Even with all the decorations aside, people like to get themselves, personally, into the holiday spirit and one way that women, in particular, prepare themselves is by getting manicures! But not just any manicures, Christmas-inspired manicures. ^.^ Now, I haven't always been the most feminine and for years… Continue reading On the 16th day of Christmas…

Christkindlmarkt As many of you may have noticed, one of the activities on my to-do list for this wonderfully (annoyingly) rainy Christmas season was to visit the Christkindlmarkt, which is the German name for a Christmas market. In particular, I wanted to visit the one in Chicago. Why? 'Cuz it's close and amazing and I love… Continue reading On the 15th day of Christmas…

I believe the number one thing people think about when it comes to Christmas is presents. Oh, don't act like you don't think about it. Haha! I know, I do. After all, many of us are trained from a young age to think about presents, whether that's receiving them on Christmas day, having our parents… Continue reading On the 14th day of Christmas…

Winter may not be official until December 22nd, but that doesn't mean we can't get into the winter spirit. I mean, the temperatures have dropped, the wind has picked up a bite, and frost blankets the early morning world even if snow hasn't quite made its appearance yet. Aka it's cold! Haha! And with this… Continue reading On the 13th day of Christmas…

Do you believe in Santa? Alright. Truth time. I spent hours and hours searching online for ideas on what to blog about for my twenty-five days of Christmas because I couldn't think of hardly anything. Most of them said the same things: presents, cookies, crafts, etc, etc. However, one item that kept popping up seemed a… Continue reading On the 12th day of Christmas…

Ice Skating Ice skating isn't really a Christmas tradition. In fact, when I was younger, my family hardly ever went ice skating. The only time I got to go was when it was for a friend's birthday party, a girl scout troop outing, or a school field trip. Not that it bothered me. Ice skating was… Continue reading On the 11th day of Christmas…
