Holiday Calendar

DIY: Holiday Spirit Calendar

I’m one of those holiday crazy people who waits until December first to put up the Christmas tree. I’m also the one who never sneaks around the house looking for my presents in stowaway spots my husband might be using. And I’ve never opened a present early just to re-wrap it and try to look surprised on the Big Morning. Is it because I’m a humbug and want the season to be short? No way! I’m all about the anticipation and the lead-up to the event. I think that the more you think and plan and fuel that excitement-fire, the more enjoyable the day will be.

“Non-Traditional” Christmas Traditions

“Non-Traditional” Christmas Traditions

The Christmas season holds many special memories for me over the past 40+ years. As a child, it was my most favorite time of the year, not because of the gifts (well…maybe just a little) but because of the traditions. You see, as an only child it could be a bit lonely. I didn’t have any siblings to play with, talk to, or argue with. However, I did have many cousins, who doubled as my siblings. Every year we looked forward to Christmas at Granny’s. It was an entire day and evening of fun-filled events with my parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and Granny! Her little house was jammed packed with people, food, good stories, laughs, small gifts but most of all…full of love!

  How to Do Movie Night Without Breaking the Bank

How to Do Movie Night Without Breaking the Bank

It’s that time of the year. That’s right; Rogue One tickets are on sale. It’s no secret that my love for Star Wars borders obsession (having stopped planning my wedding to purchase Force Awakens tickets). As a fan, you learn when the tickets go on sale; grab a pair for the first night before the masses shut down the internet and know the importance of spoiler blocks. Being a comic book nerd is not always easy. A new movie is released practically every month and at $13.50 a ticket (IMAX) it can be pretty costly. Still, these little breaks from reality do not necessarily need to break the bank. There are several ways to save $$ and you don’t have to be a SUPER FAN to do it.
