Random Information

In the interest of keepin' it real, we did not mail our Christmas cards last weekend as semi-planned. But, they are all going in the mail tomorrow, only thanks to the help of my husband's parents who are visiting and my husband set them to work!

So house guests beware, if you travel to our home during the Christmas season, you may end up stuffing tons and tons of envelopes or if you're really, really lucky, attaching return address labels!


I was in the Target recently (shocking, I know!), and I was looking for some Christmas M&Ms to use on some cookies. You know, just plain chocolate in the center M&Ms but in the red and green colors.

And can I just say, it was staggering how many different kinds of M&Ms there were! I had no idea there were so many varieties! I'm used to peanut and plain and mint at Christmas, but now? Pretzel,almond, dark chocolate, dark chocolate peanut, peanut butter, and cherry!

However, amid the sea of choices, I still could not find what I was looking for, the plain Christmas colors M&Ms!


That's it, I'm too tired to write any more, have a wonderful weekend!

Mommy's Idea


  1. I love the idea of pretzel M&Ms but I always talk myself out of buying them.

    I feel the same way about hershey kisses - there are just too many to choose from!

  2. It's amazing how many variations on a theme companies are bombarding us with these days. Sometimes I like a new item, but I always cringe when I see new and improved. I almost always like the original better. (Hmmm, that turned into a bit of a rant!)

  3. Isn't it weird that the one thing you are looking for, which seems pretty easy to find always ends up being the one thing you can't find.

  4. i totally get your exhaustion!!! and putting guests to work is fun! when my best friend came out to my house after my wedding, she got stuck helping me write and mail out the thank you cards! so ha!

    i really like your pictures!!!

  5. I picked the M&Ms off a Christmas cookie today. That's about as close to sending Christmas cards as I plan to get this year.


I'd love to hear what you think!
