December!!! This is my favorite month of the year outside of July, my birthday month. What a special time when everyone appears to be more kind and loving towards one another. So besides holiday good feels, here are a few things I would tell you if we were having coffee…
1 – My Christmas tree is not up, still in the box and I am not pressed at all. Holiday decorating is on the agenda for the weekend.
2 – Does your family’s holiday traditions include an Advent calendar? Here’s one from Martha Stewart, great for getting those creative juices flowing as you countdown to Christmas.
3 – I wait all year long to watch my favorite holiday movie – An Affair To Remember. I will watch it several times until January and cry every time. Ahhh true love.
4 – These boots might be made for walking, but my wallet is telling me to walk away from this price tag. They sure are cute though!
5 – Myleik Teele is a popular Atlanta Tastemaker whose cooking snaps have me thinking I am Julie Child or somebody, but she can miss me with these nasty things, yuck, ewww. Not on my palette.
Yes I kinda have holiday on the brain but that’s a good thing. I mentioned the advent calendar, does your family have any holiday traditions?
Have a merry and bright weekend!
Linking with these lovely bloggers.

Happy Friday! I hope to get our tree up this weekend or to at least get it started. I’ve changed out our decor this year and I can’t wait to see it all come together.
Hi Mimi, It’s supposed to rain all day Sunday, so that’s my project!
I don’t really have any holiday traditions and I also have never had a Christmas tree! lol I’m also obsessed with Myleik and I’m praying I can attend the 2018 retreat!
Yes Courtney love Myleik, the retreat is sure to be epic!
I used to put up a tree early but I would tire of it before Christmas. I have fond childhood Christmas memories of getting and decorating the (live) tree on Christmas Eve. Little did I know that my parents didn’t have much money and got the tree for practically free by waiting till Christmas Eve (lol). We would have lights up and got tons of Christmas Cards which we would tape to the mantel over the fireplace and other places in the living room. By Christmas Eve, we would be estatic over Dad bringing home ‘the tree’. Mom would do her baking–cakes, cookies, pies–and Dad was in charge of putting the angel on the tree, toy assembly and cracking nuts (among other things). Miss those days! I am a grandmother now and I try to maintain some of our family traditions, like putting up the tree (artificial) on Christmas Eve. Most churches had a candlelight service on Christmas Eve which we would attend. I, too, love making popcorn, snuggling under a quilt and watching Christmas movies.
What a beautiful sentiment, thanks for sharing!
I also have Holiday on the brain and Yes those boots are Fantabulous but the price is so disgusting. Enjoy the weekend Sis.

I know right, just disrespectful but a girl can dream!
I don’t think I will ever try snails either. I don’t think they could ever make them seem appetizing enough for me to want to eat one.

Exactly Sonya, nothing would make them appealing!!
I love Mylieks snaps too. She always makes me hungry with her snaps as well very healthy and I take notes.
Hi Kiwi, her snaps are so good. I’m snagging that cookbook she always uses!
