Now onto the post at hand! The cover of Miranda's book is perfect for this holiday post I have planned!

Be Jolly by Golly Blog fest!

Christmas cookies and happy hearts, this is how the holiday starts!










Melissa and I have teamed together to create an awesome blog fest for all the awesome bloggers out there!

We adore the holidays!

Especially Christmas… and what better way to celebrate then to share your space!!

We want to know how you celebrate!














So before you get our tinsel in a tangle here are the RuLeS:

1.Blog Post to be posted on December 20th (whatever time you desire)
2.Show pictures of your decorations, holiday lights & Christmas tree!
3.Share your favorite treat (Recipe included, chance for others to steal the yumminess!)
4.Share your favorite drink (Recipe included, chance for others to steal the alcohol – or non)
5.Last but not least… visit others!!! Take part in their holiday cheer!

Note: For those who don’t celebrate Christmas, you’re welcome to share any other holiday you are celebrating in this year!

Feel free to grab our AWESOME badge and share the love on this fun blog fest! So I leave you with a few fun pictures found on google that fit the bill this holiday season!

I <3 your pictures. Nice glass of champagne there.

I just want the holidays to be here now, because then I also get to conveniently not keep plugging away at school.

Francine said...

Hi,

Have snatched the banner and will post up now!

Would love to enter this, but my No1 rule of entering blogfests is that I respond to all entries, and I know I'll never make it around 60+ blogs over the holiday period.

Have fun everyone!!

best

Didn't intend being in, but am!!!

Julie Hedlund said...

So sorry I didn't get my post in. Believe it or not, I got a concussion when my dog knocked me down by accident - a bad one, so the past few days have been a blur - literally. Now that I'm getting back to myself, I need to get my rear end in gear for Christmas itself.

Just wanted to let you know I didn't Scrooge out on you! :-)
