After an extended Thanksgiving break (which is exactly what this girl needed!), I’m back just in time for the Christmas and holiday season! After everything that I’ve posted for the holidays before, did you guys really think that I would let December pass by without a printable Christmas movie list?! That’s a definite NO.
Christmas is next week and it’s almost time to dust off your plate, put a batch of cookies in the oven, and make sure there is enough milk in the fridge for the big guy. You know, the one in red. Santa Claus!
But it seems like there are a few others that seem to get forgotten about when we leave all of the treats out on Christmas Eve. There happen to be eight other important members of the team that often get overlooked. Know who I’m talking about…? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen. Oh, and Rudolph! We can’t forget about him!
So today, I’m sharing a super simple last minute recipe and DIY for Reindeer food that you can make with the kids to prepare for Santa’s arrival!
I don’t see pineapples going out of style anytime soon. They’ve been in the limelight for the last few years and I’m still just as much in love with them as I was when they first hit the scene. (I even have an entire pinterest board dedicated to them!)
Around this time of year, when my yard is covered in snow and I freeze just running out to get the mail, I always wonder why I didn’t book a vacation over the winter months. Sand, sun, and surf sure would be lovely to break up this below freezing weather. But, alas, I didn’t. And I’m still here. But, I can dream, right?
I don’t know if I’m crazy or normal, but I may hang stockings up for my dogs for Christmas…and I may also plan special meals for them on holidays…I might have also just purchased dog ice cream too. Crazy…? Yeah, probably.
Either way, crazy or not, today’s post is a fun and easy way to add a little more pizzaz to your pet gifts this year for the holidays! It also makes a really cute gift wrapping idea for and friends or family members with dogs too, because you don’t want to forget about them, right?
This dog bone gift wrapping idea is fun and easy enough for anyone to do. And you could even use your own homemade dog biscuit recipe if you’re feeling extra jazzy.
Fridays are already one of, if not the best, days of the week, but I’m totally about to make it that much better for you.
Gift lists can be daunting and one of the ones that I dread is the infamous “neighbor gift”. Do you guys gift things to your neighbors?
I’m not sure if “punny” neighbor gifts are only a Utah thing or if they are popular across the country, but I’m always trying to come up with a smart and cheap gift idea that I can pull together quickly. (Mostly because I forget and do it at the last minute!) But, puns always become involved every year somehow. Go figure. I blame Utah.
Is it just me, or does this week seem to be going by unusually fast? I’m consistently seem to be a day behind and I’ve been struggling with keeping track of which day I’m waking up to. I’m just going to blame my loss of sanity on the crazy schedules that I’m living in right now. Work schedules, blog schedules, and personal schedules all see to be all over this place this month with the busy holiday events that are taking place.
If you’re living in temporary madness like me, it could be hard to put together details for your own little get together, but I’m sharing a super easy tutorial today that you can literally forget to do until the day you need to decorate. (It’s that quick and easy!)
It’s one thing to think about the decor for your home, or table, but there’s an easy way you can bring a little bit of “festiveness” (is that even a word?) to your party chairs too!
These easy holiday chair wreaths are simple to make, only use a few supplies (3!) and you can find the greenery in your own backyard!

The holidays are definitely in full swing around our house right now and I am feverishly shopping, baking, and doing all things Christmas related to prep for December 25th. I’m crossing people off of the gift list and trying to keep it all straight from friends and family to neighbors and co-workers too.
Since me and the hubs don’t have kids, I always include our pups on the gift giving list each year. (We have 3 pugs!) After all, they are like our kids anyways! I also try to include something special for each of my friends with pets too.
Today’s post is a great way to gift the pet lovers or furry friends on your list. It’s a simple DIY that people will actually use and it’s really inexpensive to make too! Plus, there might be treats involved too…pet friendly treats, that is!
I’m sharing some glass etched pet treat jars that are fun to personalize and something you can make in an afternoon!
I’m such a sucker for holidays and the traditions that go along with them. I definitely drive my family crazy with the jam packed calendars that I try to fill with everything I can to get the most out of the season. Yep, I definitely annoy them, but oh, well, they will thank me later, right? 😉 I’m also always on the hunt for new traditions that I can add to my list. Crazy, yes. Festive, absolutely.
One of those things that I’ve recently discovered is orange clove pomanders. They are so pretty and I never really realized how easy they were to make, until this year!
I’m always looking for simple ways to dress up my home for the holidays and I wanted to create a fun focal point and centerpiece for my table that is going to last for the whole season. Don’t get me wrong, I love fresh flowers, but after a week or so, they usually loose their luster and I wanted something to last until New Years!
Once I found out how fast and easy the pomanders were to make, today’s post was born.
I paired some fake greenery, oranges, and a few pine cones together and created an orange clove pomander centerpiece that is the perfect holiday treat for my table, and I did it for about $12. Not too shabby and it’s pretty gorgeous if you ask me.
