I was very surprised, in fact, shocked when I began reading this article about what NOT to give for Christmas gifts. I mean, c'mon, what's wrong with a little cheese, or a few flowers or for goodness sake...a gift card!
I haven't watched Saturday Night Live for many many years. I used to watch the show every week. Never missed it in the beginning. Back in the day, me and my buddies would get together on Saturday nights, go have some cocktails somewhere,
Okay, I MAY talk like I'm all finished with my Christmas shopping, but I always wait until the last minute to do some of it. Then I panic. Then I search. Running from store to store. Here are some ideas, if you are like me!
Where are the best place to go looking at houses decorated for the holidays? Each year we would load up the car with snacks and hot chocolate and head out to different neighborhoods and cruise looking at all the displays
So you didn't get enough shopping done on Black Friday? Monday is CYBER MONDAY when we spend more time online shopping than we actually do working. And with smartphones, we don't even need a computer to accomplish this anymore! Will you be taking a few minutes here and there to shop? I know I will!
So what do you do with all those leftovers from Turkey Day? Besides sammiches, and just snacking, do you actually make full meals out of your leftovers? This is the first year in many that Lori and I don't really have that much left over, because we went to a friends house for the holiday. Here are some good creative ways to re-invent your leftovers!
Here are the times some stores will officially "open" to Black Friday Deals!
I personally did the early shopping a few years ago. It changed me FOREVER! I will never ever do that again. From now, I go out shopping AFTER the rush, and am happy with whatever I find left on the shelves
My wife Lori is a baking fool this time of year. Pies, pies, pies, oh and FUDGE! I don't eat the fudge. Have never been a fudge eater. Just too sweet for me. So I brought a plate of fudge into the XL studio for Colleen to have a piece or two this morning and OMG!
Things are going to be quite different this year than ever before. It used to be three of us for holidays. This will be a first for Lori and I. Without Ashley. Our now 18 year old out on her own and still living in Fresno
