 I ended up getting these Ugg's instead of the Cardy and I love them!  They are so comfy and more fitting to the foot and leg than the normal Ugg.

UGG - Cardy

Finally decided on this winter's boot!  I love this Ugg boot because it is made to be worn without socks and it can be worn up, slouched or low!

Rudolph's Spares

One Sunday morning while I was surfing the internet for unique paper crafting blogs for holiday project ideas. I discovered Kerry's Paper Crafting Blog, a fantastic blog which has loads of cute ideas for paper crafting little unique gifts for the holidays.  I came across "Rudolph's Spares" which were these adorable tins filled with red hots stamped with a reindeer!  I decided that I was going to give these little holiday tokens to my co-workers, friends and family and they were a huge hit!

"The Perfect Man - The Gingerbread Man"

This Christmas I was bound and determined to make Gingerbread Men cookies!  After first attempting a recipe out of a random cookie book.  I called my Mom for help and she sent me the fail safe recipe from the Betty Crocker cookbook that she used for all of her baking when I was growing up.  This recipe worked beautifully except it fried my cheap electric hand mixer because it calls for 7 cups of flour!  Oh well, I guess it's time to put one of those fancy Kitchen Aid mixers on my wish list for next year!  The cookies came out great I did a small and large gingerbread man and worked with various dough thickness.  The fatter the gingerbread man the softer the cookie, the thinner the more crunchy!  Instead of raisins I used cinnamon imperials and I to be completely honest the combination was perfect!  This is going to be my signature holiday cookie for years to come.  They go amazing with a fresh cup of brewed morning coffee.
If you want the perfect Gingerbread Man recipe here you go, straight from the Better Crocker Cookbook!

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup Shortening
1 1/2 cups dark molasses
2/3 cup cold water
7 cups all-purpose flour* (If using self-rising flour, omit baking soda and salt)
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons  ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt

1.) In large bowl, beat brown sugar, shortening, molasses and water with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon.  Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

2.) Heat oven to 350 Degrees. Grease cookie sheet lightly with shortening or spray with cooking spray.

3.)  Roll dough 1/4 inch think on floured surface.  Cut with floured gingerbread cookie cutters.  On cookie sheet, place cut outs about 2 inches apart.

4.)  Bake 10-12 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched.  Immediately remove from cookie sheet and place on wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.  Decorate with colored frosting, colored sugar and candies if desired.

Belgian Waffles - Yummy!

I came across Philosphy's 3-in-1 Belgian Waffles Shower Gel at Marshall's the other day.  Not only was it a bargain it reminded me how much I love their shower gels.  The scent is yummy and definitely hot of the griddle!  I promise you this is a treat that you don't want to live without this holiday season.
