Merry Christmas, From Our Family to Yours!

When I started writing this, I was planning on keeping it simple and light. I planned on addressing my followers in one section and my team in another. I had so many plans for this article, but when I sat down and started writing it just didn’t feel right. There was this gut feeling that I had, deep down, that made me want to make this article something more and maybe even something that you could take with you to every Christmas and to every joyful and celebratory moment from now on.   So, before you read any further, brace…

Christmas Crafts (For Kids)

When I was in elementary school and it was craft day, I remember being so excited!! I really liked all kinds of crafts, but Holiday crafts were definitely my favorite. The nice thing about where I went to elementary school was that we did crafts all the time. Who knows? Maybe that’s why I’m so creative now!   Crafts are such a fun way to spend quality time with your little ones. Not only do they spark your child’s imagination and creativity, but usually the adults have fun doing them, too!   Anyway, I think your kids are going to…

Inexpensive Gifts Your Parents Will Love

As a child, I remember working really hard to make my dad framed drawings each Christmas. Now, as an adult, I want to be able to get my dad the best gifts that I can find. The problem? I also have 8 other people to buy presents for. So this Christmas I'm getting creative. Not just with my parents, but with my friends and other family members as well. I want to get them the best gifts that I can, even while on a budget.   This list will be organized from most expensive to least expensive, so even if…

The Reason for the Season

Hey guys! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Songwriters Eddie Pola and George Wyle had it right. This IS the most wonderful time of the year! BUT, would you believe me if I told you, the reason for the season was magic? Let me explain First off, the holiday season is stressful. The end of the year is steadily approaching, and you have yet to accomplish every goal on your yearly list. The end of the first semester is drawing to a close, which means finals are approaching, and you have to finally read the chapters in your…

Staying Fit While Eating Like Shit

It’s that most wonderful time of the year where the fridge can’t possibly hold any more leftovers and the bakers of the family is still making more pie. You enjoy your days traveling from one party and dinner to the next, just gobbling everything in sight.   Okay, okay. Exaggeration. At least for lil’ ole antisocial me. This doesn’t negate the fact that this time of year is fondly recalled as the time where we all get to eat our frickin’ hearts out. Mashed potatoes and turkey and pie, oh my!   With all this extra food comes some extra…

5 Movies to Keep Your Heart Warm This Season

As winter is slowly approaching and the frosty mornings and hot beverages are upon us it’s only right to prepare what seasonal films we are going to watch to warm up those chilly nights.   Watching Christmas films with loved ones and a hot chocolate is the epitome of this time of year for me. Albeit, we do start celebrating rather prematurely as the Halloween decorations have barely made it down before the Christmas ones go up.   I was sat thinking about what films define the Christmas period and those that really warm up your heart and get you…

Dressing Your Kids for the Coming Cold

Hey guys!(: We all know that keeping our kiddos/NK’s protected from the cold is important. It can be tricky, though, when you’re dealing with very young children who can’t express their needs yet. It would be awful not to know your little ones are cold simply because they can’t communicate!   There are also many first-time nannies and mommies out there that already have some idea of what to do to keep their babies warm, but may want some extra tips in case they’ve overlooked something.   It’s always good to take the initiative to learn more about protecting your…

Keeping Your Spirit Bright While the Sun Disappears

Sheesh! This time of year sucks! I mean, yay cold weather and yay presents, but this time of year is so stressful for me. Not only do I have to find or make gifts for those I love, but I also have to stay in budget.   Have you met my Aunt Carol? NOTHING makes that woman happy! At least, nothing that seems to be in my price range. And oh lord. Don’t get me started on the insulting compliments I have to endure from Grandma June for fear of getting banished by my mother.   Then there’s the constant cleaning,…
