Happy Belated Holidays!!

I have been steadily writing reviews the past day or so, and it just now dawned on me. I have been so busy that I never wished anyone Merry Christmas. I am so sorry! I have been absent for several days, and I know it was a bit selfish. I felt that I needed the time to relax and hang out with friends and family. I hope everyone had a great time and stayed warm! I am in desperate need of some hot chocolate, but of course, it isn't very cold outside at all. I remember one year, when I was about 13 or so, it was too warm to have the fireplace going when we brought the tree home. My parents turned the AC on until we were shivering, set up some logs, and started a fire. We proceeded to decorate the tree and have a real festive time. Simply speaking I learned that if the weather isn't helping set the theme of the holidays, we can do it ourselves! So here's to cranking up the AC and enjoying a nice warm cup of creamy hot chocolate! I hope everyone is enjoying the rest of this year :)

Do you have any silly memories from a time spent with family during the holidays?


  1. Hope your Christmas was wonderful also! Thanks for your super blog and all the great reviews for interesting and new products. Happy New Year!

  2. That's some dedicated effort to create the atmosphere! I love fireplaces and I think it'd be really cool to have one of those fancy ones with blue rocks. Can't say my family ever went to such lengths for the holidays. We just go on a vacation instead! :-P
