It's Christmas time, and Christmas morning will be here before you know it! We all know how hard it is to shop for men. Should we just buy them bacon? Or tickets to a sports game? Even when you ask them, the answer is always the same, "I don't know." So, in lieu of Christmas this year, I have compiled a list for the man in your life.

Amazon Fire HD 7 Tablet* With thousands of apps, a 7 inch screen, internet capabilities, and a fast quad-core processor, what's not to love about this tablet? Don't worry, we won't tell that you secretly bought it for your use too. :)

Carzor Credit Card Multi Tool 9-in-1* How neat is this tool? It's the size of a credit card with multiple functions. This gift would be perfect as a stocking stuffer. You'll have him wanting to show his friends his new 'credit card.'

Quick and Easy Christmas Decor: DIY Snowball Garland

I know, I know. It's early to start decorating for Christmas, but hey, I'm only about a week early! Lately, I have had an itch to decorate for Christmas. It is my favorite holiday after all. This year, I wanted to go for a silver and white theme. Do you know how hard it is to find cute garlands in stores? I went to every craft store! Don't get me wrong, they had plenty of cute garlands, but none that matched my "vision." 
So, I decided to create my own garland. I remember seeing these garlands in classrooms as a child, and it seems to still look cute to me! It's simple to make and adds a touch of cuteness.

Anniversaries and Snow

Next month, my husband and I will be celebrating our four years of wedded bliss. Because of his work schedule, we had to squeeze a vacation in a month early. No complaining here! We had been planning for a while, and finally decided on dates and lodging. After getting everything for our stay booked, we focused on plane tickets. Boy, those can get pricey!

After much contemplation, we chose to drive the thirteen hours up to the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Colorado. The drive there wasn't so bad. The views were spectacular and my husband and I traded off every few hours so we didn't get burned out too quickly.

I am so jealous of those with this view every day! We left very early in the morning. By 3:30 AM, we were on the road. After a few trade offs, some stops for refueling and food, and a Walmart stop, we made it to the cabin at 6:30. The cabin we had chosen was nestled in the Rocky Mountains, and honestly, was terrifying to get to in the dark, but boy were the views perfect.
