O what a Christmas

Three days after Christmas and I'm feeling great! I am relieved the craziness is done, yet as always, sad to see it go. :-[ 

I did many things: made gingerbread cookies (41 of those), celebrated my sister's birthday and a friend of mine's birthday the same day [had two small dinners, haha], packed and shopped for most of my Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve [haha, I know...], went to my sister's house 25 minutes away to do the grand celebrating with my family, then off to my boyfriend's family's house to celebrate them, then the day after we went to the Ga. mountains [2 hours away] and celebrated with my boyfriend's grandmother, uncle and aunt. I played chess the whole time, Came home and had a chick-fil-e night in front of the tv [watched home footage of our Disney trip], then got up early to head to church to be a camera worker, then choir singer, then home nurse to my mom that is a little ill. [I think she got what I had - whoops], then off to my boyfriend's aunt's house for lunch, came home to play Wii Resort [fun game yall, get it!!!], and then had a pizza night while watching Sound of Music/Transformers.

That was my whole weekend in a very small nutshell.

Christmas Vacation

I loooooove Christmas. I looooooove Disney Movies. So, let's combine the two, shall we?!


For the fourth time in my life (wow, pinch me!) I am jetting off to Orlando, FL and indulging in a wondrous experience in Disney World. Packing sucks, spending money is a bummer, and planning other things with other ppl can be so stressful, but........ the reward of it all is CLOSE:

The most beautiful building ever! The Cinderella Castle!

Have a great weekend all! For now, talk to ya soon.

Grab a cup of jo and read this:  Castles are a love of mine

Oooo, I love coffee in the... painting?

Artist assistants stand next to 3,604 cups of coffee which have been made into a giant Mona Lisa in Sydney , Australia .  The 3,604 cups of coffee were each filled with different amounts of milk to create the different shades!

A Christmas Show!

So, I'm in love with my boyfriend... therefore; to treat such a guy, I purchased tickets to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular ft. The Rockettes!!!  

They have many Christmas scenes, Christmas favorites, the lights, the glitz, everything. To make it an even more special CHRISTmas show, they are doing a magnificent scene of the birth of our Savior; Jesus. I am looking forward to that.

Plus, to add to the already fun-filled night, my boyfriend is secretly taking me somewhere fancy in Atlanta before we head to the Fox (in Atl). He says "dress up, babe." And I say 'I'll bring my best..." I'll give you guys the scoop when I know the details. So, here we are, getting dolled up and handsomed up and ready to head out to dinner, then off to a miraculous, spectacular show!

I want to say this: make this Christmas a Christmas that will never be forgotten. With a budget, that is... be creative w/ your gift. Be loving all thoughout the season and the upcoming year. Love all, for we are all the Lord's. Happy Day to you and a Merry Christmas. O and catch all those Christmas movies and become a kid again...

(I'll send you all some pics of our evening at a later time)

And the winner is....

Nina Bogard of DreamyPleasures!

Congratulations and enjoy this great Christmas Set -- remember to promise that you will do a giveaway (if you haven't already) to keep the giving spirit alive.

Merry Christmas!

*This item will be shipped on Monday, Nov. 30th. Enjoy!

I have been recently inspired by Norman Rockwell. His paintings just fascinate me and I am overwhelmed with the depth of meaning in each one of them. So... I searched and found the Thanksgiving Table painting:

And, given this week of thanksgiving and mastery of "tablestry" (? - haha), I have searched high and low, near and far, and many in between and found some super table settings. Be inspired on your own Thanksgiving Feast. And remember, let us thank the One who has given us blessing after blessing each year...
I give mine to my Lord, Jesus...

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!

Who doesn't absolutely adore this place?

O what a world of wonder...

Our trip last year

Experience a Forever Memory Here!
...if you are a person who hasn't experience Disney World around Christmas time, I'm the one to tell you that it is a must/a goal/an aspiration in this life to do so. You will take in all the lights, all the shows, all the wonder from every corner of this magical place. It truly makes you feel like a kid in the most wonderful, magical land in the world!

I have had the privilege to have gone to Disney World around Christmas twice now and it is an experience that NEVER gets old, never gets repetitive, and never gets uninteresting. I always stand in wonder when I take my first glance on that glorious castle. The castle of dreams, I call it. A land that we all have dreamt of.

***As a special for this blog and my store: please visit my CHRISTMAS SECTION -- you will get FREE GIFT when you purchase any one or more of those items --> just type "Disney" in the message at checkout and receive a free gift, totally on me.

Castle Dreams...

To glance upon a real castle has always been a dream. To see its originality, its grandeur, its history would be an amazing event in my life. To tour one of these magnificent castles would be an even bigger dream. The lush gardens and vibrant colors... wow! I would put on a flowing pastel dress and tip toe around this place until sundown. People have viewed castle as scarry, but I've always seen them to be majestic, stunning, and creative. Castles speak creativity.

"Take away my car; give me a horse-drawn carriage and lets ride around a castle! Then, when we're through, let's walk barefoot through the halls, explore hidden rooms, and embrace every slow-passing moment."
