Christmas, confessions

Christmas Confessions

So today I have some Christmas style confessions for you!

–I have never in my life built a gingerbread house. How this is even possible, I do not know? I feel completely cheated on life experiences and this needs to be fixed.

I think I am going to go home one night and say this to Chris:

I have never been ice skating either.

–I don’t think this is any secret, but I am one of those. The annoying people that whip out Christmas music before the Halloween decor collects a spec of dust!

–Every year I have to have a box of Queen Anne’s Cordial Cherries. It doesn’t matter that they are made of cheap chocolate, it is tradition! They hold magical powers.

–I love Christmas shopping. LOVE IT! Maybe because I like finding that perfect something for everyone that I care about. And gift wrapping? Love it too! While singing Christmas songs, of course!

–I get a little emotional every year when I pull the crystal angel out of the box to place on our tree. It was my grandmothers and used to hang on her tree. I like to think she is my angel looking over me every year.


–I die a little inside when people start to get all stressed out about plans for Christmas. I love spending time with my family and this is my favorite time of year. I try not to let it bring my spirit down.

–Some of my favorite memories from my childhood are from Christmas time.

–I love getting Christmas cards in the mail. Snail mail is dying, and I hate that. Nothing is more exciting than seeing all the love in your mail box after a long day at work.

Confessions in ecards

Oh gosh yes.



I eat more batter/dough than actual finished product!!!

    Queen Anne’s are the freaking best! And as for the ginger bread house and ice skating – check those off your list, stat!

    Oh you have to build a gingerbread house! So fun!

    I love Queen Anne’s! I don’t care if they’re cheap chocolate either, they’re delicious!

    That’s so sweet about your grandmother’s angel ornament, I get all sentimental about ornaments too! Ours all have special meaning and memories attached to them!

  • Reply Mree December 10, 2014 at 9:01 am

    I love that you have your Grandmother’s ornament on your tree. She is so looking down over you. How precious!! What a wonderful thing to have. I’m a sucka for anything sentimental.

    I’ve never made a gingerbread house either…but I hadn’t even thought about it until now…and now i have to make one too!

    I sent my husband that exact buddy the elf picture when he asked what I wanted to do this weekend!

  • Reply Stephanie December 10, 2014 at 9:43 am

    Nah, maybe it’s the perfectionist in me, but building gingerbread houses is totally overrated. I’m not crafty at all, and it’s hard!!

  • Reply Pamela @ Sequins & Sea Breezes December 10, 2014 at 9:45 am

    Haha love this!! That reaction to human babies is SO me! And I made a gingerbread house once. It turned out pretty awful LOL!

    <3, Pamela

    OMG the reacting to baby humans! Too funny! I agree, I get sad whenever people are stressing about Christmas. IT’S CHRISTMAS! J and I had full on “christmas” a few years ago (he was living away from me, so when he came home for the holiday–we took FULL advantage) and made a ginger bread house (not one of those pre-made ones, we built that sucker from graham crackers!)

  • Reply Jenn @ Business, Life & Design December 10, 2014 at 10:13 am

    I wanted to sent out cards this year! Because I like getting them, too, and don’t want that tradition to die. My family always cut them into strips and added them to a chain we made. Eventually it got long enough that it was impractical, but I like the idea of keeping those good wishes and positive energy around. (Unfortunately the card plan is struggling a bit, but we’ll see. I’m trying to avoid getting stressed over it, which might mean I have to let it go all together.)

    This salad tastes like – yeah, I rather be fat too HEHEHEHEHEHEHE.

    And I have ornaments that were my grandmothers too – – – I love them so much!!!!

    I haven’t made a gingerbread house either. I have to get my Dad the QA Cordial cherries, he loves them! Top shelf strange, haha! Love the baby human reaction.

  • Reply Darby Hawley December 10, 2014 at 12:18 pm

    I am so with you on everything! I love Christmas music, planning, and shopping! I don’t think I would mind one bit if Christmas were year-round! I do need to make a gingerbread house at some point in my life too. I’ve been slacking there lol

  • Reply Erin LFF December 10, 2014 at 12:43 pm

    People stress ME out about plans. I want to just enjoy it, but I feel like I have family members constantly texting me, worrying about what date and time something’s going to be, asking me every time they’re out shopping if so-and-so would like this. THAT is what gets to me. I’m like, just let me enjoy my cookies, tree and Christmas movies!!! I love wrapping gifts for people and usually I’m a little sad once the last one is wrapped!

  • Reply Kate December 10, 2014 at 1:44 pm

    You can come wrap all my gifts if you want. I am the worst!

  • Reply kristen December 10, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    I get sad when people bitch about spending time with family and that… or having to split the day with 2 families. Um, KC and I will NEVER get the opportunity to do that. even if we wake up at 1am to spend time with one family and then fly to sydney we will miss christmas. people are so lucky, they don’t even know.
    i have never made a gingerbread house (i dont even think i’ve ever eaten gingerbread, is it a thing you eat?) but I have definitely been ice skating as its a thing to do at home (it was a school ‘sport’ that we did every tuesday lol) but i have never gone ice skating outside on real ice before – only man made ice inside. i’m going to do it in NYC I’m SO EXCITED.

    I am a chocolate covered cherry nut! I got them every year as a child and those processed little cherries are still in my heart!

  • Reply tricia coniglio December 10, 2014 at 3:59 pm

    hahahahaa! Let’s make gingerbread houses and hold hands! So funny. I made a gingerbread house at work for a competition but it was a group effort so I didn’t do much. Which basically means I haven’t made one either. I’ve been ice-skating a couple times but I want to go more.

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter December 10, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    I have the reverse issue. We make gingerbread houses every year but I have never eaten one! We buy two kits and split into teams on Christmas day with our families. It gets quite hilarious and a bit competitive. I cant possibly eat the houses after that. For one thing they are adorable and for another everyone has touched them. Gross. Haha!

  • Reply Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie December 10, 2014 at 6:02 pm

    love all things Christmassss!!! YOu HAVE TO GO ICE SKATING!!!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth December 10, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    Seriously if I lived closer to you I’d totally take you figure skating!! Since you know that is my secret past life and everything 😉

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says December 10, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! Top shelf strange! I love it!

    We have those chocolate cherries, too (fine, HAD. They’re all gone until I buy the next box). My husband insists on them every year.

  • Reply Amanda | Glittericity December 11, 2014 at 6:40 am

    This is the first year in a long time that I won’t have Queen Anne cherries!! I love them so much. Especially the dark chocolate ones. When I was a teenager, I worked a shift at the grocery store and then went out to my car to find I’d locked my keys in it. I rang my mother to bring the spare key, but we’d been packing to move and she couldn’t find it. She had to look for a while. So I went back into the store, bought a box of these, sat on the roof of my car, and ate all of them. Felt pretty icky afterwards, but they were delicious! #thingsteenagerscandothatinolongercan

    I miss the days of handwritten letters! Let’s go back to that. 🙂 Troy and I went ice skating for the first (and only) time during our first Christmas together. It was a nice reminder of how graceful I m not. Hah. It was so much fun though. I want to go back. So I think you need to build a gingerbread house and go ice skating this year!

  • Reply Amanda December 13, 2014 at 9:47 am

    I’ve never made a gingerbread house either! I’ve always wanted to though… but I have zero talent/patience for that kind of shit and I think I’d probably just end up eating it all as I went along, hahaha!
    I’ve never had a cherry cordial! A girl at work got some from her secret Santa and was raving about them… never been drawn to them though!

  • Reply Krystal December 13, 2014 at 11:33 pm

    Love the ornament so beautiful and such a special meaning!

  • Reply Teh Megan December 23, 2014 at 2:47 pm

    1. gingerbread houses are overrated and they are so gross. Yes i tried to eat mine.
    2. Ok, you need to go ice skating.
    3. Hells yes to the christmas carols in october.
    4. Cherry cordials are amazing. I can only eat 2 per year ish (because they are so sweet they make my teeth hurt), but damn they are delicious.
    5. We have special ornaments too and they are my favorite.
