So 2017 was not the best year of my life, so the idea of having no bad days in 2018 sounds like a good plan – and to help kick it off I found the No Bad Days Compact Calendar from the fine folks at Ban.Do.

About the No Bad Days Compact Calendar from Ban.Do:

“Ever wish you had a place to plot out those really big plans? helloooo, 12-month planner!! ok, so here’s the deal: it’s pretty similar to our 17-month agenda, but also super different (check those extra product pics!). it’s got the same awesome artwork, fun holidays, and stickers, but it’s only 12 months and it’s broken down into month views (as opposed to week views in the agenda). it’s perfect if you’re more of a minimal planner or if you’ve got your eyes on some big-picture prizes—like weddings, pool parties, or doggie daycare business ventures.”

GIFT WE WANT: Tickets to see “Hello Dolly” on Broadway

There may not be enough time to order the Wayne & Garth cufflinks to arrive before Christmas, but you can go online right now to purchase me tickets to see the award-winning revival of Hello Dolly on Broadway.

Bette Midler continues in the title role through January 14, 2018 – which would be fine, but I would totally love to see the show when the great Bernadette Peters takes over beginning January 20.

While on my Christmas road trip to Branson, MO last weekend, I spotted a sign for a town call Ebenezer and made a note that I would have to stop by on my way home. Of course I was listening to an audio version of A Christmas Carol at the time and thought it was quite fitting that there was a town named after the great Mr. Scrooge.

I took a little side road that led past a few cow fields and found the town to consist of a few houses and one church, and that was it.

But I got a kick out of visiting the town and paying homage to may all time favorite literary tales – Christmas-themed or otherwise.

Here is a fun throwback to the kitschy Christmas trees of holidays past – the Mini Hot Pink Christmas Tree I found from the fine folks at Plum and Punch.

About the Mini Hot Pink Christmas Tree from Plum and Punch:

“Bring a vibrant splash of color to your holidays with our hot pink artificial mini Christmas tree with a pink wood base. Guaranteed to give your home a bold and stylish holiday feel.”

Amongst my friends we have a “no picture frames nor candles” rule when it comes to exchanging gifts – but I think we can make an exception with the White Log Striker and Wassail Gift Set I found from the fine folks at Farmhouse Pottery – because it is just awesome.

About the White Log Striker and Wassail Gift Set from Farmhouse Pottery:

“The quintessential Christmas pair. Our fully dipped, hand-hewn match striker paired with our yuletide candle is sure to please. Wassail is the fragrant embrace that captures the rich, distinct aromas and moments of the winter holiday season – freshly cut pine and evergreen boughs, clean snow that crunches underfoot, spicy and clove-flavored undertones of steaming apple cider and the subtle, smokey scents that linger by the log fire.”
