My favorties

I am doing ALL my Christmas post this week because next week I will NOT be blogging but taking time to reflect on the reason for the season, my family and baking! I think its important to take a break and soak it all in and I encourage you all to do the same. So lets play!

My favorites!

My favorite footwear in the winter is none other than UGG boots. I wear a pair every single day almost and sometimes I don't want to take them off to go to bed!
On any given day during winter you will see me dressed in UGGS and ALWAYS in a scarf. The rest of the outfit is optional but these two items are for keeping warm!!!!
Favorite movie you ask?....Well I love love all the Christmas Classics. Now that I have Tucker to introduce these movies too its even better! BUT my all time favorite holiday movie is ELF. I can't help it......it is laugh out loud funny. You either Love it or Hate it.
One of my favorite things about Christmas time is running home to check the mail box. I have always sent out Christmas cards and I know a lot of people aren't doing the same, but my tradition will NEVER change. I sent out around 60 this year (we have a BIG family). I love getting home and opening the mail and seeing who is spreading the joy as well!!!
Of course all my Christmas lights are burning in the evening time inside and out BUT its not complete without the burning of a holiday candle! Yankee candles have always been a favorite (I did work at Hallmark in college) and I have to have a Christmas scented one every single year!
And we can't forget about all the goodies that come with the holidays. Next week is what I call baking week. I make ALL my favorite holiday cookies and treats next week and I take a plate (or usually a bucket full) to every one's house we visit. Here is one of my favorite things to make and everyone looks forward to me bringing them! OREO balls!
And here is the recipe:
And Christmas wouldn't be complete without making a list and checking it twice!!! MY favorite spot to do most of my shopping is Target!!!! I love that store and don't know what I would do without :)
So what are your favorites???

OMG! If I was a fashionista (which I'm not), then I would LOVE the first two things! I heart Oreo truffles.
