#ThrowbackThursday My Best Friend & My Toy

I always wanted a convertible as a kid. I could picture myself driving along the road by the beach, listening to music, with the wind blowing my hair around. Fourteen years ago, I finally got my convertible and we have loved having it and driving around with the top down, enjoying the scenery. This is a picture of me and my best friend, my daughter, when we first got the Sebring.

#ManCandyMonday Tom Brady from the New England Patriots

Sorry I missed you on Friday, but I’ve been having a month full of computer issues. Sigh. Luckily, I’m close to being back to 100%.

I have to confess that I find myself becoming a Patriots fan mostly because of Tom Brady. He’s handsome and more than that, he seems like a genuinely good guy with a solid work ethic. So today’s Man Candy choice is none other than future Hall of Famer Tom Brady!

#ThrowbackThursday The Kids’ Table

I remember being at the kids’ table as a kid and being so impatient about moving up to the adult table. Today’s Throwback Thursday is a look back at a kids’ table from many years back. Soon these kids’ kids will need a table of their own for Christmas Eve dinner! Very exciting.

#WriteWed Inspiration is all around me . . .

Every year my family makes a trip to get our Christmas Tree and to visit New York City to see all the Christmas sights. This year it was a challenging trip. Lots of rain, at times with powerful winds that drove the wet into us. We persevered and got our tree and had a lovely time, although we did have to camp out for about two hours in the Time Warner center to warm up, dry off, and get some dry socks. All in all though, it was a lovely day filled with laughter.

I know that some of our experiences from this rain-soaked holiday excursion will make it into a book someday. Here are some photos from our day. I’ll have more from you as soon as I download them from my camera. It was just too wet to risk using the phone at times for the photos. Click on where it says CHRISTMAS 2014 to see more photos!

#ThrowbackThursday Holiday Traditions & #Giveaway

One of our favorite holiday traditions is trekking out to the Christmas tree farm to chop down our tree and then trimming it together. The final addition to the tree is always the angel on top. It’s not a fancy angel, but it was one of the first things hubby and I bought together at a local Woolworth’s for our first Christmas.

It’s up to my hubby and our daughter to sit that angel at the tippy top of the tree. Here’s some photos of them finishing our Christmas tree.

Share one of your favorite holiday traditions for a chance to win a $10 gift card!

#ManCandyMonday It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

December 1. I’m already in panic mode about the upcoming Christmas holiday. I don’t have a list. Forget about checking it twice. I really need to start prepping the house for the big Christmas Eve bash and think about all the gifts for my friends and family.

Luckily, I have a helper for all this! He’s even decked out in part of his Santa suit so it’s helping me get in the holiday spirit. What do you think? Is he a good choice for Man Candy Monday?
