Mixbook – review & giveaway

Like a lot of moms, I take a LOT of pictures.  I have them on my desktop, on my laptop, on my Facebook, on my blog and in my Photobucket account.  I love to share them with family and friends, but remembering where they are is a challenge on a good day!  I still have a huge stack of pictures that I printed off months ago sitting on my counter, waiting for me to date and file them….and I haven’t had any printed since our summer vacation, so I’m way behind.  I love the idea of printing photo Read more […]

The Original Christmas Classics on Blu-ray – review

Watching Christmas movies on tv is something that I look forward to every year.  When I was in university, we’d actually write on the calendar what night our favourites were on, so we could work our studying around them!  This year my daughter is old enough to begin to understand the Christmas hoopla and I’m so excited to be able to start traditions with her.

Do you hear what I hear?

Just last week, I posted about how I needed some new Christmas music to really get into a festive spirit.  Then yesterday, the lovely Feisty, Frugal and Fabulous did a Wordless Wednesday post that mentioned a Glee Christmas CD.  I’m a total Gleek, so I was very excited to hear about it. Then today, while shopping at Costco, I came across the CD – and it was on sale!  Needless to say, it was promptly added to my (already exploding) cart.  I haven’t listened to the whole thing yet but so Read more […]

What’s for breakfast: Eggnog muffins

I love muffins and I love eggnog. When my friend posted a link to eggnog muffins I knew it was something I had to try ASAP.  I’m so glad that I did!  I haven’t tried the spiced butter yet but I plan to give that a shot a little closer to Christmas. A few notes about what I did differently: on the recommendation of my friend, I did not bake the muffins, dip into butter and then dip into the topping.  Instead, I combined the topping and sprinkled it onto the muffins before baking.  SO GOOD. I Read more […]
