{Extras | Christmas Treats}


{Hot Chocolate Spoons}

One of the best parts of the Christmas season has to be all of the delicious treats people are making. Much like everyone else nowadays, my go-to place for food ideas and receipes is Pinterest. Follow me on Pinterest here. I have made many Christmas treats this year, however these five Pins have been my favorite so far.


{Chocolate-Dipped Pretzels}


{Spiced + Spiked Apple Cider}


{Candy Cane Marshmallows}


{Peppermint White Russian. I did not actually make this drink... but I did bring the idea and the candy canes. Ha.}

{Extras | Other Christmas Faves}


{Xmas Blues by Quad City. It doesn’t really feel like Christmas until I hear this on the radio.}

We all have those top Christmas movies/TV Shows and music that when asked, we give the same titles over and over again… I know I do. See here for movies and here for songs. As many times as I watch and listen to my top faves, it just would not feel like Christmas without these other favorites.

{Jiggle All the Way. This movie is so hilarious.}


{A Charlie Brown Christmas}


{Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas sung by just about anyone}


{The Muppet Christmas Carol}

{Extras | Christmas Songs}


{1. O Holy Night sung by David Phelps}

 Christmas is my favorite holiday. This time of year usually involves a lot of lounging around in hoodies, jeans, and fuzzy socks... which suits my introvert personality perfectly. This year there are so many Christmas themed events, meetings, and parties on my calendar that I'm starting to get a little concerned. Ha! Not really but I have a lot going on this year. I am very much in the Christmas spirit. However in order to motivate myself into getting ready for these events, Christmas music is an absolute necessity. Although some of the artists have changed over the years, these are my top five Christmas songs.

{2. Carol of the Bells sung by just about anyone}

{3. White Christmas sung by The Drifters}

{4. All I Want For Christmas is You sung by Mariah Carey}

{5. Mary Did You Know sung by just about anyone}
