Friday Favorites

The countdown is on – 17 days until Christmas! That either makes you very excited, or very stressed. It’s ok, it’s all going to come together and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. 😉

A few festive Friday Favorites for you before we head into the weekend…

I’m still always looking for non-traditional Christmas music that we won’t get sick of. Try out these albums: She & Him Christmas Party and A Very She & Him Christmas featuring Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. They have a nice indie sound but still cover some of the classics. Find their station on Pandora or Spotify if you want to take a listen. {read more}

Comforting Spiked Tea with Fireball Whiskey

     We are getting out the wool socks and already fighting our first colds. Last year I made up a batch of homemade hot buttered rum mix from a recipe I found over at
Crumbs in My Mustachio and since I had some Fireball on hand,
I had to come up with something interesting.

Comforting Spiked Tea with Fireball Whiskey

I drink tea all day long in the cold weather seasons so it seemed natural to try to come up with a little “hot toddy” of a drink when I got my first cold of the season. This is a delicious treat to enjoy while you are curled up on the couch watching a movie. {read more}

Dear Tuesday, I’m over you

It’s a fact that Tuesdays are the worst day of the week. It’s true – someone at a fancy pants university did a study and proved it to be true.

For me, I passionately dislike (that is my nice way of saying HATE) Tuesdays because they are the longest day for everyone in my family. My husband has a 12+ hour day, therefore I have a 12+ hour day and as much as I love my kids, it’s just too much time together for all of us. I don’t like doing dinner time and bed time by myself, it’s lonely! And I know my husband misses the time with us. {read more}
