Twas’ three days before Christmas and our vacation is finally starting to turn around. We headed to Kansas City to enjoy a little early white Christmas and celebrate Patrick’s birthday this weekend but not without a few hiccups.  Nothing like a little stomach flu to start off this vacation. Finally after a few days in bed, we are back and ready to spend Christmas in sunny Arizona. These next couple days I will be sharing a few of our holiday traditions with y’all.

If you are traveling this Holiday season, I hope you have a safe and happy holiday.

If you are still in need of some last minute gifts today, here are tons of ideas for Her, for Him, for the Gym Bag, for the Little Ones, Stocking Stuffers, Under $50, Under $100, for the Beauty Babe , and  for the Hostess, you can also click the Holiday Gift Guide on the side bar :)

On another note, Congratulations to Dawn S., the winner of the Nespresso Pixie Aluminum and Aeorcino Milk Frother Giveaway! Thank you to everyone who entered! Also, you still have one more day to enter the Sesame “Celebrate” Gift set, which is the perfect way to ring in the new year!

Happy Holidays!

We all have those Mondays (especially during the holiday season) where the start of the week comes just a little too soon. Maybe you’re still feeling the side effects of that Holiday party last night or just didn’t get quite enough sleep the entire weekend.  Thankfully my friends from Nespresso are here to help with the Monday (or Tuesday or Wednesday) blues. So too beat those tired eyes one lucky winner will receive a Nespresso Pixie Aluminum and an Aeorcino Milk Frother.

With snow filled mornings, coffee is essential for those early wake up calls (my day normally starts before 6:00am). I know I am not alone when I say that being busy during the holidays is an understatement, so when the folks at Nespresso sent me the Pixie to try, I was so excited to share with you their amazing 21 flavors of Grand Cru coffee. I can make a “better than the coffee shop” espresso in less than a minute, which is key for rushed mornings.

In order to take a deep breath during the Holiday season, one of our favorite things is to have a relaxing Sunday morning in bed. Sleeping in, cuddling with our two Goldendoodles (Molly and Zoey) and breakfast in bed are a few of our favorite things. It is so nice to enjoy some quiet time before the hustle and bustle of shopping for last minute holiday gifts.

So whether you are rushing around or just need a moment of peace, Nespresso and I want you to enjoy a Tasteful Holiday season.  All you have to do is fill out the Raffelcopter below to win a Nespresso Pixie for you (or even to give as a gift!).  The giveaway ends next Monday, so be sure to enter!
