5 things...

1. I really stink at blogging. I just don't know what to give up to sit down and blog every other day. I'm in awe at the people who write regularly. I make myself feel better by thinking that their house must be a mess, or there are dishes in the sink, or beds are not made...you get the idea.

2. We got our tree. Thanksgiving weekend. Needles are already dropping.

3. Shopping for everyone but the boys....done!

4. Peppermint mochas are back! My favorite indulgence of the season!



5. Looking for some new holiday music. Suggestions anyone?

I enjoy your blog, you keep it real. :)
Holiday music: Martina McBride - 'White Christmas' is my all time favourite. amazon.com has it cheap too.
Straight No Chaser - they have a great Christmas album that's a ton of fun and great harmony. Check them out on you tube too.

I enjoy your blog whenever you post. And can relate to trying to find the time. I'm looking forward to trying the black bean soup recipe. Been trying to find some new holiday music on Pandora.

well - all I can say is keep writing.
you will find your rhythm one day.

I have dishes in my sink; and laundry piled up to the ceiling - well not quite... but you get the idea...

I am drinking half sweet no whip gingerbread lattes as a treat.


Holiday music: do you like Enya - she has a christmas CD that came out last year.

I bought two CDs from Starbucks the last couple years (Dean Martin, Eartha Kitt, etc)~but I'm not sure if they have them this year. Harry Connick, Jr also has some nice jazzy Christmas CDs.
And, I admire anyone who blogs~I feel like I don't have time to even READ them anymore. Tis the season and all that...

I really enjoy your blog. I admire anyone who does it all, since I can't even get it started!

I love the ELF soundtrack and Fred Claus soundtrack. Also, iTunes has some nice essentials like Jazz and Cocktail Christmas.

Have a wonderful holiday season!
