I’m going to say it….please don’t hate me…but I need to see some snow.  Like some legit snow in my neighborhood soon.  Even a little flurry that melts in minutes but I don’t feel Christmasy at all.  And snow is usually the shove I need to get into the holiday spirit.  One year, we had a huge snowstorm in October…it was so bad it knocked out the power everywhere so we hiked our butts to a hotel because Landon was just a wee one and we didn’t have any heat. And then the next day it was like 90 degrees. So, something of that sort would be splendid right about now.  Except…we did start the process of building a pool so maybe they should get the done first?  I just don’t know.

In the meantime, I’ve been doing all I can attempting to get in the spirit….like decking the halls something fierce.  I can’t stop. I won’t stop. There’s glitter and gold and poinsettias just about every square inch of the house. Watching Christmas Vacation…for the fifth time and it’s only December 2. I’ve been baking gingerbread like it’s the end of the world and testing a few cocktails just to be festive. And I’m making delicious gifts for my friends and neighbors…like these super, insanely easy Slow Cooker Chocolate Fruit and Nut Clusters. Did I mention they’re  super, insanely easy to make?
