I've got eight stupid fabulous things for the month of December! It's a bit holiday focused, but as I love to say, 'Tis the season!
Are you ready? Then let's begin!
How do I love thee, Peppermint Bark? Let me count the ways.
(1) I love to eat you.
(2) And then eat some more of you.
(3) And then eat some more of you after that.
(4) Are you sensing a pattern here?
Unfortunately, the good people at Ghiradelli consider you a "holiday" candy and therefore only make you available seasonally. But what a glorious season it is!
One of my best friends gave me the above necklace as a thank you gift for taking photographs of her family a few weeks ago. I insisted that no payment was necessary, that I was thrilled she asked me to take their pictures in the first place, and that I learned a ton of stuff from the photo shoot and that was payment enough. But tricky little Anne went ahead and got me something anyway. And I loooooooooooooove it. I'm thinking of standing on the corner now with a sign saying "Will Take Photographs for Jewelry". Think people will go for it? Thank you again, Annie! I am stupid excited to wear this thing!!!
Um, hello. Is this wreath not the cutest thing EVER? I am totally going to try and make it. What could possibly go wrong? Wait - don't answer that. I'm not sure what my obsession is with making wreaths out of food items lately. I wonder what I'll make for New Years....can you make a wreath out of empty liquor bottles?
Now I know makeup and lotions and everything are all a very personal decision. But I gotta tell you, I love this stuff. I just recently bought it and am so glad I did. It's kind of like a tinted moisturizer, I guess is the best way to describe it. It's very light, blends super easily, and just looks great as a base coat for your face. I usually touch up with a bit of foundation after putting this stuff on, but I'm not even sure I really need to. I've been struggling lately with makeup due to my aforementioned aging issues, and I think I finally struck gold with this purchase. Now watch them go and discontinue it. That would make me stupid angry.
I just finished reading all of these books a few weeks ago, and man, I loved them. The premise had me hooked right from the get-go, and this author knows how to tell a good story, so I pretty much couldn't put them down.
They're young adult, so don't go into them expecting a literary masterpiece. And in the interest of full disclosure, they're also pretty depressing. But don't we all need to be depressed once in awhile? Sometimes I think it's good for the constitution. But even so, maybe it's best to wait until January to read these so as not to dampen your Christmas spirit.
Isn't this just so pretty? I love this Nativity set. I've had it for years, and I just think it's so timeless. Although I still don't have the creche piece, because it is dang expensive. Baby Jesus certainly couldn't have afforded it, which is kind of ironic, if you think about it.
What's this? Oh, only the greatest Christmas music album ever made!!! Mele Kalikimaka is my favorite. Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say, on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day..... Oh, it's just so festive!
