It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Getting a head start on one of my 2011 resolutions by resurrecting this site.

 

Nevermind the fact that I haven’t been getting much of a head start on my holiday shopping.  Or wrapping.  Or decorating.

 

*sigh*

 

But there are lots of friends from the interwebs and Twitter who are more than making up for my slack-tastic self in the holiday department.

 

1.) The Bloggess. If you haven’t yet read her post on the Christmas Miracle that her readers helped create,  you are missing out on a big piece of holiday spirit.  Go! Read it now!

 

2.) Domestic, But Not Martha.

Crystal has only been blogging for a (relatively) short time, but is already making an impact.  Check out  her Handmade Holiday series for lots of gifting ideas.  Especially companies – and Etsy sites – where your purchases make a difference.  (I’m looking at you, Sara from  Happy Brown House)

 

Go and check out the links above.  In the meantime, I’m going to work at getting my Christmas on.

McDonald’s Myrrh Milkshakes

‘Tis the season to be jolly – and to enjoy a McDonald’s Egg Nog milkshake.  I rarely go to McD’s – but I love the Shamrock shake and the Egg Nog one too.   However, I’m not a big fan of the new “Triple Thick” recipe.  I like mine “Single Thick” thank you very much.  I just have to work too hard to get the new one into my mouth. 

 

Let’s get something straight, here:  I ain’t drinking these things for the excersise.  If you know me – my mouth gets enough excersising with all of the talking and wild facial gestures I make each day.  Sometimes I just want to relax and enjoy some egg nog goodness.  And, oh boy, is it good!

I had an online fun conversation with my facebook friends yesterday on the subject. Here’s what went down with E’s status update yesterday afternoon:

EP: E thinks Jesus must be proud of egg nog ice cream being associated with his birth.

SL: Wasn’t Jesus born in the summer? Eggnog ice cream makes all kinds of sense.

Me: I like to think that Jesus is a big fan of ice cream, personally.

EP: that’s what I’m saying… I’d be proud to have eggnog ice cream associated with my birth.  If there was a fourth wise man, I’m sure he would have brought some.  I’m kind of assuming a lot here, though.

Me: The only reason they didn’t bring it was because they didnt’ have a cooler.  So they substituted with myrrh.

SL: Or maybe myrrh is just a fancy pants bible word for ice cream.  I don’t know you, julianne, but i appreciate your theology.

 

The moral here is Triple-Thick, Single-Thick or what-have-you… I hope you have a chance to enjoy one of the simple pleasures of the holiday season. 🙂

piece #7

7.) I love Fireworks!!

Fourth of July is one of my all-time favorite holidays. The lights, the bangs! and Booms! I especially love the ones that look like giant chysanthemums whose thick, sparkling petals look like they are falling down right on top of you.

The closer I am; the louder and brighter they are- the better! Some of my favorite shows are in Clawson and in Lake Angelus.

Oh, yeah – but especially the ones that go off when you have a great kiss. mmmmm.
