New Christmas Tradition: Opening Disney Sock Advent Calendars

New Christmas Tradition: Opening Disney Sock Advent Calendars
Christmas time is my absolute FAVORITE time of year. (I mean, I’m sure that’s obvious by now). Each year I love picking out a new advent calendar to help me countdown to Christmas. For the past few years I’ve been doing LEGO themed advent calendars. This year LEGO released a super cute Star Wars and Harry Potter advent calendar.

While I love those two franchises, I wanted to do something a little different this year. I always see sock advent calendars but I never thought to get one. But this year that changed! Side note: is it just me or does anyone else’s socks just magically disappear throughout the year? I swear I start the year off with x amount of socks and by the holidays I’m left with four or five pairs.

Where do the socks go?!

Here’s my Disney sock advent calendars for 2019: Continue reading

Christmas Traditions: Picking Out Christmas Wrapping Paper (2019)

November 22, 2019

Cute Christmas Wrapping Paper
Yes it’s November and yes I’m already done Christmas shopping. Well, 95% done. I’m picking up one or two more things on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Needless to say, Christmastime is among us. (At least for me it is and has been since November 1st).

It’s no secret I LOVE Christmas (and every holiday). And I have so many fun Christmasy things to do this weekend. Today, after I see Frozen II of course, I’m going to a Christmas themed pop up bar here in Chicago. And tomorrow is the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival! I LOVE the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. Attending the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival is one of my favorite holiday traditions. Speaking of holiday traditions, it’s that time of year again:

Time to share my new wrapping paper haul!

Is It Christmas Yet?!

Cute Christmas Bedroom Decor / Festival Christmas Bedroom Decor
Happy Hump Day. I feel like this week has been going by so slow. Like shouldn’t it be Friday already? I think it’s because next week is Thanksgiving and I only have a three day work week and a four day weekend. So time is going by super slow because I’m so excited for it to be next week.

I know what you’re thinking “It’s Wednesday, you don’t post on Wednesdays?”. You are correct! For the past month or so I’ve been posting on Monday and Friday. But as some of you may have already noticed, there was no post on Monday.

Let me explain! Continue reading

Move Over Pumpkin Spice, Peppermint is Here

Peppermint flavored Christmas treats
Move over pumpkin spice, it’s peppermint time! Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit quite like peppermint flavored treats.

Happy Monday everyone. First and foremost I want to say Happy Veterans Day to all those brave women and men who have fought for our country. My mom was in the Navy so I want to say a special Happy Veterans day to her. Now onto today’s post.

You know how everyone (*cough not me though cough*) loves pumpkin spice? Well, the way everyone gets hype when pumpkin spice flavored stuff starts to hit the shelves, that’s exactly how I feel about peppermint. I love all things peppermint! Peppermint scented candles, peppermint ice cream, heck, peppermint soap!

Last weekend at Target, I got a ton of yummy peppermint flavored treats that I can’t wait to eat! Continue reading

Michaels Christmas Collection
Once Halloween is over, it’s OFFICIALLY Christmastime in my book. So, happy holidays everyone! But really, I’m so excited because this is my absolute favorite time of year. I love every single thing about the holidays. I love all of the Christmas movies, the decorations and everything in between. Speaking of Christmas decorations, Michaels Christmas decorations are so adorable this year (and every year really!).

Last weekend I hit up Michaels and I was pleasantly surprised at all of the cute holiday decor they had available. Just seeing all of the adorable decor put me in the holiday spirit. (So much so, that I went home and watched The Muppet Christmas Carol. Yup, I’m that person!).

Here is Michaels Christmas Collection for 2019: Continue reading
