2 things you need to try. Today.

I have two things to improve your life right this second.  The first is something you may have discovered years ago but is new to me.  I have never liked chocolate. Never. It takes like dirt. I realize that this is abnormal.  G loves rocky road so I have been buying it for the last 18 months of marriage and never partaken. A few nights ago we were playing our new favorite game (Are you smarter than a 5th grader on wii) and he was eating a bowl and for some reason I decided to try it.  Now I only mourn the last 18 months when I could have known about its goodness.  If your taste buds have not tried this, then you must deprive them no longer.  For 3 bucks, your taste buds can dance with chocolate delight.   Look for a container that looks like this:
Second item of business.  If you want your home to smell like Christmas heaven then do the following and you won't regret it.  In fact, if you do regret it I will send you $5 cash in the mail because I am extremely confident that you will love it. 
Get a saucepan and cut up an orange and then put enough water to barely cover the orange slices.  Then add 1 Tb cinnamon or put in fresh cinnamon rollup things if you have them.  Add a dash of vanilla and some cloves spice and then let it simmer.  Seriously the best smell. You will feel like you just went up a level on your homemakerhood, not to mention made the house tingle with Christmas cheer and delight.  Give it a try and you'll be pleased you did.   Liv just went to sleep so it is time to be productive.

  1. You totally taught me how to make that Christmasy smelly good delight while we were freshmen in college! I still do it to this day. If I don't have oranges, I use apples, and orange imitation flavor with cinnamon and all that other stuff.
