Valentine’s Day

I had every intention of boycotting today's hallmark gimmick holiday. Not because I am bitter or anything of that sense, but why do we need a day to remind us to tell people that we love and care about them? I heard on the radio the other day, that on average, a person spends $160... Continue Reading →

Blogmas 2018 Day 1!

I know I say it all the time, but this year has come and went so quickly I can't even see straight. I wasn't sure if I was going to do Blogmas again this year, with the fear of it being repetitive from last year. Alas, here I am, deciding to see where the month... Continue Reading →

Black “Friday”

Since when did black "Friday" start actually occurring on Thursday? Or better yet, on Thanksgiving? It seems every year stores open earlier and earlier on Thanksgiving for people to get those "black friday" deals.

I know many people are bothered by Christmas stuff being seen, or heard, before the month of December. I figure, to each their own.  Normally, my Christmas spirit begins with... Continue Reading →

Blogmas Day 5

When you have children, you realize how hands on they enjoy being. Part of our Christmas tradition is making a Christmas craft and/or coloring Christmas pictures.  For Pickle's first Christmas we let him paint on paper with red, white, and green paint. He has always loved painting, especially with his hands. He also loves painting... Continue Reading →

Blogmas Day 1

Hurray it is officially December! December is probably my most favorite time of the year.  I love the snow. I love Christmas everything. My birthday is in December, but even if it wasn't it would still be my favorite month. I feel like it's the most creative/crafty month for me. This year I wanted to... Continue Reading →
