A Christmas Link-Up

Tuesday, December 05, 2017

It has been WAY too long since I've participated in a link-up. I always forget how fun these are and such an easy way to connect with others about the same topics. What better link-up to participate in than one themed around Christmas? Seriously, this whole month is just the best ever. I hope you'll link-up here too with The Blended Blog!

1) Real tree every single year! This year we considered a fake tree because someone told me about trees that COMBUST out of NOWHERE and I got nervous but Daniel still made me get one. 

2) What are those cookies with the Hershey's kisses in the middle of them? I love those. 

3) Travel on Christmas Eve, home on Christmas morning. 

4) Colored lights outside, clear on our Christmas tree. 

5) This is the Kensington's first Christmas so we've considered sending out cards for the first time but every time I go to check out I stop myself because they just cost so much. I'm still going back and forth. 

6) I honestly don't think I have a favorite. I usually get some really great Christmas presents (9 Christmases out of 10 my mom and I buy each other at least ONE of the same exact gift, so I usually have an idea of what I'm getting). 

7) It's a gift I'm giving this year so I can't spill the beans just yet. Let's just say I have dubbed myself the queen of gift giving people I seriously know my people and what they're going to like and I found something perfect for everyone. 

8) Stockings. Usually filled with candy and the random gift that I couldn't figure out how to wrap. 

9) This year I desperately wanted the matching family jams from Hearth & Hand at Target but I didn't get to them early enough online. I didn't find any others that I love but I usually end up getting a pair of Victoria's Secret flannel pjs from someone in my life on Christmas morning. 

10) Does Maria Carey's All I Want For Christmas is You count as a Christmas carol? No? Too bad. That's my fave. 

11) Every year since I was little my dad would buy us scratch off lottery tickets and put them in our stockings. He used to tell us that anything over $50 dollars had to be split with the family (and that always seemed like SO much money) haha the same rules still apply today and it's still just as fun. 

12) Usually I buy presents all month long but I'm proud to say that this year I finished absolutely all of my shopping before December even began. I know, I'm as shocked as you are. 

13) Elf!

14) Peppermint Mocha, hands down. 

15) This will be our first year with a kid at Christmas, although she'll only be 8 months old. We will definitely be putting out milk and cookies because, yum. 


  1. Peppermint mochas and cookies for Santa forever and ever.

  2. Peanut butter blossoms!!!! They are delicious!
