Or should I say...snowpeople!

I am sharing my collection with you on this Pink Saturday.  I have loved and collected snowmen for many years.  I bring them out every winter and keep them in a curio cabinet that I decorate seasonally.  I really love them!  They are so cheerful.

Last Minute Stocking Stuffer Ideas

I know...this is pretty late.  But I'm hoping it will help someone.  I'm actually done with buying all of my stocking stuffers, but each year I struggle a little for something original.  I've made these lists for women and men (which could also include teens); I don't have young children in my life, so I'm not really in touch with the best gifts for them.

For Women: 
Shea- or aloe-infused socks
Pretty compact mirror
Nail polish
Lip gloss or lip balm
Kitchen gadgets (Bed, Bath & Beyond have good small ones that are inexpensive)
Paperback book from her favorite genre
Clip-on reading light
Nice soap
Gift card wrapped in small box (takes up more space)
Hand lotion
Small candle
Key chain
Package of wipes for electronics
Tide "To Go" portable stain removers
"Good" chocolate

For Men:
Beef jerkey
Hand lotion
Lip balm
Book of lifesavers candy
Shaving cream
Paperback book
Fancy mixed nuts
Key chain
Kitchen gadgets
"Good" chocolate
Nail clippers
Small bottle of cologne
Shoe shine wipes
Electronics wipes
Mini bottle of their favorite liqueur
Flash drive

Most of these items could work for either gender.  Let me know if you have other ideas.  I hope this helps!

Holiday Tag

I found this tag on Makeup Obsessed Mom's blog, so I thought I'd give it try!

Favorite Winter Nail polish
It's not very holiday-ish, but I love Rage by Orly

Most worn winter clothing piece
I have cardigan sweaters in almost every color.  It doesn't get cold enough here for more than a sweater, usually.

Most worn winter accessory

Favorite Winter Candle
Winter by Bath & Body Works

Favorite Winter Beverage
Hot chocolate

Favorite Xmas Movie

Favorite Xmas song
O Holy Night

Favorite holiday food
Sugar cookies and pecan pie

Favorite Xmas decoration
Christmas trees and lights on houses

What is at the top of your Xmas list?
Since my current job is being eliminated soon, I'm wishing for a good job that I'll enjoy.

What are your plans for the holiday this year?  
Spending time with my husband, kids (who are now grown and on their own), and parents.  We do things like attending The Nutcracker, seeing the zoo lights, and we love to walk through a neighborhood called Winterhaven on Christmas Eve.  They go all out with decorations.  It has become a tradition.  Oh, also Chinese food and festive movies on Christmas Eve!

I invite each of you to do this tag, too.  Let me know if you do!
