We had a high of 82 degrees here in H-town today.  It’s almost been like Christmas in July!  We have our A/C cranking and just stare longingly at the fireplace (where the stockings have been hung with care).  Since the weather’s not helping much I thought I’d post a few of my favorite holiday things in an effort to help usher in some Christmas cheer…christmas_blog018_web.jpgThis is by far my favorite peppermint stick.  I just discovered these this year at Restoration Hardware.  It’s the perfect balance of sweetness and mint.  Yum.favorite-smells.jpgI am a smell freak… I LOVE to put smell goods all over the house, especially diffusers and candles by Aunt Sadie.  Pottery Barn has a wonderful mini-diffuser called “winter woods” that makes the room smell like a Christmas tree.  Mix that with “twas the night before Christmas” candles and you’ve got Christmas all through the house (where all my creatures are stirring… but thankfully, no mice!).christmas_blog008_web.jpgWell, as any coffee-creamer connoisseur knows, they cater to us over the holidays with flavors like Gingerbread and Peppermint Mocha (a personal fave).  Good thing they sell this stuff in the big bottles ;).   christmas_blog025_webfinal.jpgLike Momma always said, “if you can’t find snow in the front yard, you can always hang some on the tree!”  (just kidding… that was pretty lame, huh?)christmas_blog020_web2.jpgLa Madaleine is one of my favorite foodie hang-outs.  I love their holiday sugar-cookies.  There’s just something so great about those big, colored-y sugar crystals.  And they make them small enough to keep you from feeling guilty about “just one more”… very wise.stockings-star.jpg And here are those stockings “hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that…” well, you know the rest.  And I am lovin’ these star ornaments, new to our tree this year.  You should be feeling the warm Christmas fuzzies right about now…

thanks! i’m having fun playing around with it… but for some reason this darn layout won’t format properly… the pictures are scattering and the words spread out… not cool! Hopefully we can get this fixed! thanks for saying “hey”!
