What I Love About Christmas

I have always loved Christmas. The decorations. The love. The food. It’s just a joyous time of year. But can I tell you a secret?

Lean in really close…

I HATE shopping. I know I’m a girl and I’m supposed to enjoy it. But I don’t.

I don’t even like shopping during the regular part of the year, and it’s even worse at Christmas. The stores are packed with people, and even though this is the time of year when everyone is making a big deal about giving and caring – shoppers get nasty. You spend ten minutes trying to get down the canned food isle only to have someone behind you reach around to grab the last can of cranberry sauce. You stand in checkout lines for what seems like hours on end just to purchase that one gift you couldn’t find the first time you went to the store. It’s just not fun.

So last year, I made the decision to start doing all of my Christmas shopping online. The mailman and I became quite close friends during the days leading up to Christmas as he dropped off all my packages – and let me tell you – he was so much more friendly than any checkout attendant.

No lines.

No wait.

Front door service.

I liked it!

Turns out, I’m not the only one that does this. In fact, most businesses have picked up on it and are starting to post their Black Friday specials on their website – pretty cool huh?

One other thing I’ve learned is that books make great Christmas gifts! I love books – so maybe I’m biased. But you can give me a book any time and I’ll be thrilled (they are much preferred to clothes I will never wear or pretty trinkets my kids will break).

Plus, you can wrap them to go under the tree or stuff them in a stocking. They give you options. And, of course, one of those options is to buy them for yourself to read during the holiday season. I like to think of it as the two for you one for me theory. After all, if you order over $35 worth on Amazon you get free shipping. So tacking on that extra one is frugal.

Finding the right books can still be hard, which is why I wanted to let you know about the Clean Reads Holiday Book Sale going on over at They have over 30 paperback books listed that are on sale Black Friday through Cyber Monday – racking up over $100 in savings. AND they are giving away a $25 Amazon gift card. I’m personally fond of the romance novels, but they have multiple genres (fiction and non) listed. Check it out at: And I just found out that Amazon is offering an extra 30% off paperback books now through December 1st - awesome timing.

What about you? How do you do your Christmas shopping?

Our Thanksgiving Menu

Do you have any foods that you traditionally eat each holiday? Obviously for Thanksgiving we have turkey with all the fixings, but I wanted to take a moment to share our exact menu with you - recipes and all. First, I have to tell you that I LOVE I get all of my recipes there and don't know what I'd do with out it. So a lot of these will just be links - in which case you can click the title of the dish to be taken to the recipe.

Hart House Thanksgiving Menu:

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

I make this almost exactly as written. I do put it in an oven bag vs a roaster with a lid though. I found this recipe a few years back and it is simply amazing. It comes out as a mouth watering dish that is to die for. If you're not happy with your current turkey cooking method, I highly recommend giving it a try. Plus, it's crazy simple.

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

I don't think a Thanksgiving meal can be complete without mashed potatoes and gravy - but they are also crazy simple. There are enough things to cook on the stove, that I use instant mashed potatoes and heat them in the microwave as a time/space saver. I do make my own gravy though. I boil the turkey neck and use that broth (and meat) for the gravy base - adding in any extra juice off the turkey if needed. Then I thicken in up with cornstarch. Pretty simple, but really good.

Sweet Potato Casserole

Again, I make this almost exactly as written. The only thing I change is that I use regular margarine (not the fat free stuff). I'll be honest, this is the only sweet potato casserole recipe that I've ever used, but everyone always loves it.

Campbell's Green Bean Casserole

Okay, This is just your basic Green Bean Casserole - but why mess with perfection (especially when I won't be eating it)?

Cranberry Sauce

In the past, I've always bought the canned, jellied cranberry sauce, but I made my own a few weeks ago with this recipe - and it was SOOO GOOD. So I'm making it on my own from now on... although, I may still buy one can of jellied for the kids. They aren't too fond of the whole cranberries in this recipe. I will say that I cooked mine on the stove vs. the microwave method recommended here, but that's the only change I made.


I dislike stuffing, but for the sake of my family I buy a box or two and mix it up. Nothing special, but they insist on appreciate it.

Deviled Eggs

I don't think I can really give you my deviled eggs recipe - as it's very much to taste. Obviously you hard boil the eggs and cut them in half. Mixing the yolks with other ingredients until you're satisfied. We use Miracle Whip, mustard, pickle juice, salt, pepper, and paprika if that helps at all.

Pumpkin Pie

I insist that everyone must eat pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving (except for my old roommate, Nita B. - but she's special so that's okay). It's one of my favorite parts of the meal. I use canned pumpkin and follow the recipe on the can - the only thing I change is that I use half the recommended cloves.

Pecan Pie

I have the best mother-in-law in the world, and she makes these for us with fresh Texas pecans. Yeah... she's awesome. She'll also bring some sort of sweet veggie salad - which are surprisingly good and crazy healthy. I really need to learn how to make them...

And that's it. Pretty simple really, but oh so yummy.

What's on your menu this Thanksgiving?

{Christmas DVD Giveaway} Coming Home For Christmas

I love Christmas movies... well, okay - I love pretty much all things Christmas. But Christmas music and Christmas movies are two things that I never get tired of. Mr. Amazing... not so much. But he loves me and lets me splurge during the holiday season (though I'm not suppose to listen to Christmas music when he's home before Thanksgiving or after New Years). 

So when I found out that I had the chance to review the Christmas movie, "Coming Home For Christmas" I jumped at it! You know those Christmas movie marathons they run on Lifetime or the Hallmark channels? This movie would have been a great fit with those. It was Christmasy and fun - the only two things required for a Christmas movie. I even got Mr. Amazing to watch it with me before he loaned it to his mom. 

Oh! Did I mention that they also gave me a copy to give away?

They DID!

If you love Christmas movies, leave a comment below telling me what your all-time favorite Christmas movie is and I'll enter you to win the free copy of this DVD! 

The above is a required entry - you can win bonus entries by sharing about this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog. Just leave an additional comment for each entry with the link to your post and I'll pick the winner using a random number generator based off the number of comments.

After their parents separate, two estranged sisters who haven't been on speaking terms reunite in hopes that having a family Christmas all together for the first time in years will bring their Mom and Dad close again. They plan to do this in their old family home... the only problem is someone else lives there now.

The DVD includes a limited edition Norman Rockwell print!

gratitude challenge

During a season of transition in my life, I found myself overwhelmed with negative emotions like self-pity and a complaining spirit. It was as if a dark cloud had descended over me. I prayed and asked God for wisdom on how to overcome these negative emotions. And I sensed Him leading me to do this 21 days of gratitude challenge.

Over the course of the 21 days, God began to change me as I spent intentional time being grateful for all I have been given. I did this through writing in my journal each day and also sending a hand-written thank you note to someone different each day.

And now I want to share what I learned with you in the short, but powerful book.

My New Favorite Author: Jody Hedlund

I blogged over at today that my all-time favorite author is Lori Wick - but she hasn't released any new books in years, and most of her books aren't even in print anymore. So I had to start reading books by... *gulp* other authors. It was scary - and sometimes still is. But I've found a new favorite author.

Jody Hedlund writes historical fiction at its finest. She has 5 books available right now - and more on the way. One of my favorite parts of each of Jody's books is the author's note. These books aren't just set in a historical time period, many of them are based off real people from history.

John Adams, John Bunyan, Marcus Whitman - these are all famous men from history that are the heros in some of Hedlunds book. When you read the author's note at the end, you get to discover who you're reading about and which parts of the book were true, and which ones weren't. 

They are like little history lessons in the funnest package ever! I've often wondered if this is because Hedlund homeschools...  

I actually first discovered Jody through her blog. Then I won a copy of her second book, The Doctor's Lady from a giveaway. I promptly bought her first book once I'd finished it (the day after it arrived). Jody's books aren't short - but they are gripping and hard to put down.  

I've listed her books below with a short review of each one:

This novel is set in a puritan community in England in the 1650s. Hedlund gives you a glimpse at what life was really like for them. Life wasn't easy for the traveling preacher, or the young woman who stepped up to help out with his children - but this novel will have you rooting for them every step of the way.

Hedlund started this book with the historical account of the first two american women to cross the continental divide and creatively weaved fact and fiction into this captivating novel. The characters weren't always likable - but they were real. When reading the book, I felt their feelings deep in my soul. This is true historical fiction.

Unlike Jody's other books, this one isn't based off real people, but instead took on a real problem. Human trafficking. This historical romance exposes it for what it is in a way that is as tactful as possible. Set in 1883 Michigan, this book weaves romance and sibling devotion in a way I've never seen before. It's hard to write books that haven't been written before - but Hedlund nails it yet again.

Hedlund's 4th book doesn't disappoint. Set in 1881 in Michigan, this novel takes place in a small german community and tells the tale of a nobleman hiding as a farmer. The only disappointing thing? It's only 369 pages and I finished it in under 24 hours. I could hardly put it down!

Jody's most recent book was her best yet! Weaving the story of one historic couple with other events from the time period, this book was historical fiction at its finest. In 1763, Susannah Smith longs for the education that she's denied because she's female. Ben Ross is a poor farm boy and lawyer who's battling injustice. Their worlds collide and history is made. While you're deep within the pages, you'll pick up on some of the horrors of the time period, while the true heros rise to the surface.

I own all five - they rock. I have contemplated donating them to the library... but I'm a book hoarder when it comes to books that I like - and I REALLY like these! You can learn more about Jody by visiting her website at: or on her Amazon Author page here.

Today, I'm linking up with the Reader's Favorite Blog Hop going on over at BooklyBooks

21 Prayers for Teen Girls by Shelley Hitz and Heather Hart

Prayer Book

Depression, Purity, Acceptance, Peer Pressure – these are all issues that teen girls face today. But how do we deal with it? Prayer is the avenue that is recommended the most.

Purposeful Planning by Phyllis Sather

Christian Living

“Late for an appointment, a man hurried out and hailed a cab. Jumping in, he said to the driver, “Get going and drive as quickly as you can.” After a few blocks, he impatiently asked, “Are we almost there?” “Almost where?” replied the driver. In his hurry the passenger had failed to give the driver the address of his destination. That may seem like an unlikely story, yet today many people are so busy trying to keep up with the rapid pace of living, they haven’t stopped to consider what their goal in life is.” Millie Stamm Our book Purposeful Planning will help you figure out what goals the Lord would like you to have as a person and as a family.

The Godly Man's Picture & A Godly Wife by Puritan Thomas Watson

Spiritual Growth

The soul being so precious, and salvation so glorious-it is the highest point of prudence to make preparations for the eternal world. It is beyond all dispute, that there is an inheritance in light; and it is most strenuously asserted in Holy Scripture that there must be a fitness and suitability for it (Col. 1:12). If anyone asks, "Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord?" the answer is, "He who has clean hands, and a pure heart" (Psalm 24:4). To describe such a person is the work of this ensuing treatise. Here you have the godly man's portrait, and see him portrayed in his full lineaments.
