Merry Christmas and What I'm Reading This Week

It's almost time for Santa, kiddies!  I hope you've got everything prepped as much as possible so you can spend time with family and not in the kitchen the whole time.  (Unless that's your strategy...ha!) It's a Christmas themed WIRTW but I know you're busy so if you read nothing else, read the first link.

Let's get to...

Don't throw everything into the blue bin: seven tips for smart Christmas recycling  (DO NOT RECYCLE WRAPPING PAPER unless you bought paper that is made from recycled paper already.  Didn't know that until it was too late last year!  Putting it in with your other recyclables can actually void the whole load and it goes into a landfill.  Other good tips in this one)

How to keep your home safer (Good stuff)

17 Christmas Quotes That Perfectly Capture the Spirit of the Season  (Indeed they do!)

43 Beautiful Christmas Table Settings & Centerpieces  (Gorgeous!  Wish we had people come over more.)

30 Things 'Country Living' Readers Truly Miss About Christmases Past  (I'm with them!)

Transport Your Holiday Foods Safely  (Some really great tips!)

18 Vintage Photos That Will Make You Nostalgic For Christmases Past  (These look like pics from my mom's Christmases!)

The Hidden Symbolism Behind Your Favorite Christmas Decorations  (Interesting stuff!)

7 Tips For Not Losing Your S#%T Over These Stressful Holidays  (Or take my tip and live the song Christmas Wrapping..."So deck those halls, trim those trees- Raise a cup of Christmas cheer,
I just need to catch my breath, Christmas by (ourselves) this year.  Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas...but I think I'll miss this one this year!")

I hope all of you have a holiday filled with peace, family and friends and take an hour to sit and just take everything in.  A little cup of cocoa in hand, the tree aglow and maybe your favorite Christmas music on.  Before you know it, it will all be over.  Hope you get everything you want and more!

What are your plans for the weekend?

  1. It was a busy and stressful morning -- two trips to the vet, the insane grocery store, and five other stops before I got home. It is now snowing, right when the weather folks said it would start, and I'm happily in my house now for the weekend. If the streets are good I'll go to my meeting but that's it. I'll be baking tomorrow and preparing the lasagna tomorrow to be baked on Sunday.

    Wishing you and the Mr. the very BEST Christmas!!! xoxoxo
