Spreading Christmas Cheer

Today, I’m in the CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!  I’ve teamed up with my girl, Fancy Ashley, and we’re spreading some CHRISTMAS CHEER with a GIVEAWAY!  WAHOO!

*Don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter at the bottom of the post.

In case you need a few last minute CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS for the women in your life OR a cute outfit for an upcoming Christmas party…

I’m not sure what happened to the lighting in this picture.  Contrary to the picture, I can assure you-I was not standing in the middle of the North Pole when I took this yesterday.  🙂  I love this cardigan (and you will too).  It’s hard to see my faux leather leggings.  Mine are from last year but these are a great option.  My heels are sold out, but these are a similar option.  Turtleneck is on sale!  And a similar necklace option is here.


My friend, Megan, over at Letting in the Light Blog, shared the BEST idea ever for CHRISTMAS CARDS!  When she gets a Christmas card, she takes a picture with her phone.  She uses that picture as the contact picture for each person she gets a card from.  Isn’t that the best idea?!  You can see your family and friends’ cute cards ALL YEAR LONG this way every time they call or text.  I’ve already started doing this with the cards I’ve received!


If you’re looking for the perfect CHRISTMAS GOODIES, well look no further.  My girl, Shay, has you covered with 25 Christmas treats!


In the midst of all the elves, presents, and parties it’s easy to forget the REAL REASON we’re celebrating.  If this is you, then buy this book today.  It was a super quick read, and it’s the perfect book to remind your heart the reason for the season.


On Wednesday, Shay and I will be sharing what three CHRISTMAS MOVIES we’d be packing for our Stranded adventure on the deserted island.  Make sure you link up and join us!  The island is the place to be.  🙂


CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS are so much fun…cookies for Santa, matching pajamas, and so much more.  I shared some of our favorite Christmas traditions a few weeks ago.


If you need any last minute gift ideas, check this post out.  I shared some things we’re asking for/some things we already have and love.

I hope this helped get you girls in the Christmas Spirit as well.  Can you believe only TWO MORE FRIDAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS?!  

Have a GREAT day!  Don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter.  Winner will be announced next Monday.

    Ohhh, what a great idea on snapping a pic with your phone! Love that – I've never seen Megan's blog before but now I'm partial since she has a Quinn 😉 Happy Monday!

      We are both Megan's blessed to be parenting little Quinn's with special hearts (although my Q's CHD is minor, I'm greatful that it led her to us). Merry Christmas!

    Thanks for the blog shoutout! I've already been updating my phone contact photos as the cards arrive this year. I'll be adding Because of Bethlehem to my list for the month. Sound like a great read. Happy Monday!
