We love the iconic seaside resort of Semiahmoo Resort, Golf and Spa. Located just 90 minutes north of Seattle on the stunning shores of Semiahmoo Bay and Drayton Harbor, this Blaine, Washington hotel has an array of festive holiday activities happening this holiday season. Celebrate the New Year or relax from the Christmas craziness in comfortable rooms with amazing views.
New pajamas on Christmas Eve has been a tradition in our family since I was a small child in the 1960s. It was the only gift we were allowed to open and even though we knew new PJs would be inside, we still ripped into those packages with glee. When we had our own family we continued the tradition and somewhere in my huge stack of photos waiting for me to scan are many photos of the boys wearing their Christmas pajamas.
My sister just completed treatment for breast cancer. While I’ve sent her a lot of practical gifts to get her through treatment, I haven’t really sent anything that says “INDULGE.” She deserves kudos for soldering through it all. Sure, I could jot off a quick note via Facebook, but I’m doing it the old-fashioned way. I’m going to hand her a gift and let her know how proud I am of her.
Many companies offer special deals, discounts, and charitable donations for purchases during the holidays. We’re compiling a list of the best ones.
Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties have been fun way for friends to get together during the holidays for the past few years and I’ve attended many. I’ve done the stinky old sweater from the Second Hand Store and I’ve created my own by hanging holiday trim from a sweater dug out from my closet. But this year, I’ll be sporting this 3D Christmas Sweater with a large stuffed moose from UglyChristmasSweater.com.
Call me crazy, but I don’t like green bean casserole. I know, I know… it is a traditional Thanksgiving side dish, how could I not like it? Well, it just seems like a slimy mess to me. I’d rather find some new Thanksgiving side dishes and create a new tradition.
