The Most “Christmas-y” Christmas Movies

By |2019-12-06T09:30:07-06:00December 6th, 2019|

What's your favorite Christmas movie? We all have a favorite for one reason or another... more than likely something ties us emotionally to the first time we watched with family or as a kid. BUT now there's a more objective take on it: A new, fairly scientific study used 20 different factors to find out the ULTIMATE Christmas movie. They looked at 20 popular movies. The four main categories they used were the number of Christmas references in each one, how they did at the box office, their reviews, and how much of a "festive buzz" they create year after year.

Worst Gifts Ever?

By |2019-12-05T13:53:55-06:00December 5th, 2019|

At 35 years of age, I'm now learning the most important keys to giving thoughtful gifts! According to a survey, it's the sentiment behind the gift, how useful it is, and whether or not it has a personalized touch. All very do-able, LIKE COOKIES! Maybe the most entertaining part of the poll: Asking people to rank the WORST possible gifts you can get. The #1 answer was "there's no such thing as a bad gift" which we can all agree is a lie. Total Nonsense! The actual answers that followed that crazy number one for worst gifts you can get are: [...]

So smart people did a study last year found two-thirds of Americans think they're smarter than the average person which isn't mathematically possible. But hey, whatever keeps your ego intact . . .

Things I’ve Noticed

By |2019-11-25T07:39:00-06:00November 25th, 2019|

We're getting used by companies! Self checkout is a joke, why am I not getting paid to scan and bag my own items?! Peer pressure as an adult is the neighbors raking their leaves. Shoveling snow before the storm is done is a lot easier than waiting until the end. We know it's coming, but yet we still wait until the very end of the year to do all of our shopping. Black Friday isn't even on Friday anymore. We've ruined the magic! There is "Black Friday Deals" all week and some all month long! And that's Things I've Noticed for [...]

By |2019-11-22T10:26:03-06:00November 22nd, 2019|

Your Christmas tree may cost you more money this year than it has in the past. Not to be sappy, but this means you should TOTALLY get your money's worth by keeping it up until at least Valentine's Day. But really, this could be something to bark about! Christmas tree prices may be higher this year because there's less of a supply. Farmers in Oregon, Michigan, North Carolina, and Missouri all say that hot weather and too much rain affected their supply. We had the same problem on the farm out by Wabasha, that's where I lumberjack every year for a [...]
