Guys, guys! I hope you had a great weekend, and are having a wonderful Christmas season! Christmas is my FAVORITE! I love the spirit, the decorations, the happiness, the traditions, and of course I love Santa. The only thing that frustrates me about Christmas is I rarely ever have a white one, and that is the dream. Right?! Everybody wants to look outside and see snow on Christmas, but I cannot tell you the last time it happened in Indiana. So I turn to Christmas movies to see what a Holiday with Santa and snow looks like.

I’ve tried to start a few Christmas traditions with my husband, but so far watching 4 of our favorite movies is the only one that has stuck. Elf, White Christmas, Christmas Vacation, and Home Alone must be watched during the Holiday season. Starting Thanksgiving to Christmas day we watch all of them as many times as possible. My husband likes to limit it to once a piece, but there is no limit because let’s be honest . . . there can never be enough Christmas spirit. Another tradition I like to keep, is always wearing my Santa shirt and sipping on some hot cocoa while we watch these movies. Being festive starts with your appearance.

What Christmas traditions do you have?

the one with Hallmark

It’s November 10th and I’m posting my first Christmas post. I have held off long enough, you guys. But I have good reason to bring it up. No seriously, I am team no Christmas décor until after Thanksgiving. I’d rather put up Christmas décor than go shopping on Black Friday. But Christmas shopping I will do all the time especially when I see all the fun things at Hallmark.


Last week I waltzed in to Hallmark because I heard they had amazing wrapping paper. (Here’s where I admit that I’m almost done Christmas shopping, and am ready to start wrapping. I know a lot of you are in the same boat so let’s just embrace it, ok girls!? Let’s get our wrapping on so our trees will be perfect Black Friday morning.) Anyway, back to the point . . . while I was hanging out in hallmark, I saw so many cute stocking stuffers. And so many of them were Star Wars related. I’m sure you’ve heard that there’s a new movie coming out close to Christmas.  That’s when I realized there were a few people who I had forgotten to add to my list.


Iron Man (my husband) and I recently joined a small group at our new church here in Florida. We love our people, and they love Star Wars.  They open their home to us every week and they give us sweet treats every week. So we had to treat them with these star wars salt n’ pepper shakers.

There are several people like that in our lives, aren’t there? People that aren’t family and aren’t necessarily our best friends, but they are good people. They deserve some attention and love from us especially a the holiday season. Hallmark is the perfect place to find those gifts and the perfect wrapping paper for them.
