Holly Jolly Christmas Cards


As you may have surmised, I am an old-fashioned lady. I like wearing vintage Christmas sweaters. I like being grumpy and complaining about my health. However, the thing I like most of all is handwritten letters. One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is getting cards from all of our friends and family. My husband hates getting newsletters, but I love those most of all. Instead of dishing gossip, these letters are full of actual news: new babies, new degrees, new jobs. I love it!


So go ahead and send me your braggiest brags. I’ll be waiting at my mailbox in anticipation while wearing my striped pajamas topped with my holly sweater vest. 🙂


Christmas Sweater #6: Teddy Bears on the Slopes


Sometimes you might feel like the world is against you. Life is hard, and you don’t know what to do. In times like these, you need to think about teddy bears freestyling on the slopes.


These guys and gals are serious about carving the powder, bro.

(P.S. I’ve never skied before. Am I using these ski terms correctly?)

Day 5 Christmas Sweaters: Mix-and-Match


During the holiday season, it’s hard to keep up with all of the outfits you’ll need to wear to Christmas parties and various get-togethers. This is the perfect time to buy mix-and-match separates.


Here’s what you do:

  1. Go to Wal-Mart
  2. Buy sweatpants and sweatshirts in red, white, and green
  3. Paint sweatshirts with puffy paint
  4. Wear different combinations of aforementioned sweatpants and sweatshirts
  5. Feel sexy and confident in your new mix-and-match wardrobe

Blinking during picture taking or batting my eyelashes sexily? You decide.

There are endless ways you can wear your new wardrobe! My husband finds me especially attractive when I wear these versatile cotton-polyester blend pants. He says sweet things to me like, “How many days in a row are you going to wear your red sweatpants?” and “Do you have to wear your sweatpants so high?” There’s nothing like keeping the spark alive during the holidays, right? 😉

Christmas Sweaters Day 4 & Christmas Nachos

Not everyone celebrates Christmas with jewel-toned reds and greens. In some places in the world, bright colors are used because December is a warm summer month. If you live in one of these places, I want you to know that there is a sweater for you. There’s a Christmas sweater for everyone.


To celebrate our southern friends, I made a platter of Christmas nachos for dinner. Okay, these are not really Christmas nachos made with love while thinking of others. These are delicious nachos made with only me in mind. Me, me, me. I am so selfish. I hope I’m not on the naughty list this year. Do you think Santa could be bribed with some nachos?

The 7th Day of Christmas Sweaters

I have something special to share with you. It’s my Christmas sweater stash. Once winter has ended, I gently tuck my sweaters in for a warm weather hibernation. These are my sweater storage boxes. 

Now you know the secret behind the magic!
