Philly Pretzel Factory Makes Party Planning Easy

When I first walked into the Philly Pretzel Factory store I was greeted with the wonderful scent of fresh baked pretzels.  It smelled so delicious that my mouth started to water.

The only thing separating me from all this goodness was a glass display case.

There were rivets (mini soft pretzel bites), hand twisted soft pretzels, pretzel dogs, pretzel cheese steaks, pepperoni pretzel melts, and cinnamon pretzel twists.
 There were so many different items to choose from that it was difficult to decide.  So, I got a little bit of everything.


Philly Pretzel factory features a plethora of dips!  They include: yellow mustard, honey mustard,  spicy brown mustard, cheddar cheese dip, nacho cheese dip, cinnamon dip, philly cream cheese, chocolate dip, buttercream dip and marinara sauce.
How does one choose!  I decided to go with my family's traditional favorites this time, yellow mustard, spicy brown mustard and cheddar cheese dip.

The Stable Cat's Christmas Book Review and Giveaway

This beautifully illustrated book teaches us that everyone has a gift they can give to the newborn King, no matter their size or stature.
One cold night in Bethlehem, this sweet cat returns to her stables and see that a baby has been born there in the night.  All of the animals surrounding the cat tell her about the gifts they have given to the Christ Child, and this makes the cat sad that she is too little to give a gift to the baby Jesus.  When the stable cat sees the baby shivering in the manger, she leaps into his manger to comfort him and realizes that she can give him the greatest gift of all, herself.
This is truly a beautiful story that can become a traditional Christmas story with your family.

Are You a Holiday Grinch ?

A lot of people hear the word Grinch and they think negative thoughts, but if you think about it, the Grinch's philosophy really wasn't a bad one.
For some reason, some people feel that they have to spend exorbitant amounts of money during the holidays to make others happy, on gifts they really don't need. In reality, you shouldn't put yourself in debt to express your love or feel compelled to buy anything.  However, if that is what you like to do, go for it!
As a child, we didn't have a lot of money and didn't get lots of gifts for Christmas.  We would get clothing, one toy that we really wanted (within reason) and then a couple of little gifts that our mom would pick out for us, and we were happy.  Some of my favorite memories of the holidays include digging into my stocking and finding fuzz covered hard candies or visiting my Grandmother and spending time with my cousins.  When I got older and could afford to buy gifts, I would often go overboard.

#ad Easy Entertaining with HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Trays

God Puts People In Your Path

I have always been a firm believer that God puts people in our path for one reason or another.
This morning when I woke up, all I could think about was getting my home in order for the holidays and that I had to run out the door to pick up a few things to tidy up the house with.  I grabbed my keys, some cash and my list, kissed my cat and headed out the door.  I remembered that my husband wanted me to mail out our annual donations, so I grabbed them and put them in my purse.
When I got outside I didn't realize how cold it was.  The wind was really blowing today and I could feel Winter sneaking up on me.   I checked my bird feeder to make sure the birds had food and quickly made my way to my car. When I was driving to the store I placed some Christmas music on.  I like the old traditional songs that I grew up listening to as a child. I find them to be soothing.  I took a quick run over to the post office, mailed the donations and traveled to the store.
When I pulled up to the stor…
