Do you wanna build a snowman (tree)?


We put the Christmas tree up this weekend!  Instead of adding all of our traditional miscellaneous ornaments this year, we decided to shakes things up and go with a theme.  The littler ones have been rather snowman obsessed ever since Frozen released, so why not embrace it and go with a snowman tree.

To achieve the look, we added white lights and wrapped our tree in 6 inch wide white glittery mesh ribbon.  Next we used two match scarves to create one large one cascading down.  Two large branches were plucked from our yard, pruned to size, and topped with gloves.  We made 3 button ornaments out of black painted circles found at michaels, and found the snowman head tree topper that completes the look at Cracker Barrel.  Isn't he cute?

A Night Out: Coca-Cola Freestyle & AMC Theatres #Sponsored #AMCandCocaColaFreestyle #AD


My husband and I had a busy week filled with work, Christmas shopping, Holiday decorating, and party planning along with all of our normal weekly activities.  December is an exciting, but chaotic time of year.  Our Friday night was devoted to some good family fun at home, so we opted to make our Saturday night an evening out for just the two of us.  Even Santa himself needs a night out once in a while, right?

Hallmark Channel’s 2014 COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS

It's become a bit of a tradition around our house to record all of Hallmark's new holiday themed movies to watch as we gear up for Christmas and this year there are 12 new offerings. You'll note several of these new movies have already officially premiered, but fear not they are all set to air multiple times as the holidays approach.

We've already watched A Cookie Cutter Christmas, A Royal Christmas, and Christmas Under Wraps and enjoyed all 3.

Adding Beanitos to the Holiday Party Menu


I'm in holiday menu planning mode with both family events and an office Christmas gathering set to happen at our home over the next few weeks.  When I select menu items, I try to make sure there is something for everyone who will attend.  I like to serve both rich decadent treats and health conscious fare so guests can choose just how naughty or nice they are in terms of their diet.  On my list this year are a new discovery of mine, Beanitos chips.

If you are looking for a fun way to bring a little holiday cheer to you breakfast table, check out these new limited edition cereal releases sent to me recently by General Mills.  Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch and Holiday Sprinkles Cookie Crisp are a fun way to add a little sweet holiday flair.  Can't decide which to have?  Mixed them both together and top with milk just like we did.
