101 Days of Christmas: DIY Boot Stands

My mom actually bought my sister and I each a pair of boot stands/inserts last year for Christmas, and -- because I'm a blogger -- my first thought when I saw them was, "Hey, we could make these for 101 Days of Christmas next year!" It turns out that it's not quite as simple of…

101 Days of Christmas: Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrub is one of my very favorite luxury items, but I rarely use it even when I have it because...then it will be all gone! (Anyone else think this way? So silly!) However, I've always heard it was one of the easiest products to make at home, so this morning I whipped up a…

Because of this, I hold the memories I do have tightly, and these candles are on that list. I can clearly…

101 Days of Christmas: Stocking Letters

I've been inspired over the last year by other moms who have shared how they write handwritten notes to their kids for various occasions. I haven't been very good at journaling or scrapbooking or even writing notes until now, but I love the idea of adding a note to their stockings each year so that…

Last-MinuteGifts from ProFlowers.com

When we were dating, and for the first few years of marriage, my husband would always "surprise" me with Christmas roses. Unfortunately, we then moved to the boonies, and getting to the store to pick up Christmas roses was no longer realistic, so I haven't gotten them in a few years. Fortunately, it's easy to…
