First of all I wanted to wish you all a very late Merry Christmas!!! I am sooo sorry I didn’t follow through with the blog but since I am traveling and my hotel at first didn’t have internet I wasnt able to keep the posts going… I hope your christmas was supper special, unforgettable and hopefully you were all very nice this year and received tons of presents from santa they just give the icing on the top of the cake for the christmas spirit but the real dough is definitely our family and friends, those people who make the day extra special. These last few days I wont be able to post a lot of things but I will really try my hardest and when I get back I will make sure to post all the news from my trip!!! Best wishes for you all !!
9 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS
10 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
10 DAYS CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!!! AHHH I AM SOOO EXCITED, HOPEFULLY ALL OF YOU HAVE ALREADY FINISHED MOST OF YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AND WHAT CAN MAKE IT BETTER… GREETING CARDS!!!! IF YOU DONT WANT TO BUY IT BECAUSE YOU WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT THEN GET CREATIVE!! THERE ARE WEBSITES ONLINE LIKE THIS ONE THAT YOU CAN SEND BY E-MAILS IF YOU WANT SOMETHING UNIQUE YOU CAN EVEN MAKE IT BY HAND AND USE SOME LITTLE QUOTES LIKE THESE…
IF YOU WANT SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE FUNNY THIS ONE IS DEFINITELY THE BEST…
11 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS
Today, for me one of the most special days of the countdown… Telling your loved ones how much you love them… For some of us it might be difficult to tell them so write it down…Get creative!!
We tend to sometimes be very ungrateful for the things we have and the people that surround us everyday. This holiday season I hope you guys take your time to tell those special people in your life how you feel.
From my little life experience I learned that family is something REALLY important, no one can replace them…They are the ones that are stuck with us for life. They have to stand our complaining , our suffering,when we are going through rough times they take care of us, they support us, and love us each and every day… expecting nothing in return.
That’s why I believe this holiday season we should all save a date just to them express our gratitude. After all who doesn’t like a compliment every once in a while??
12 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
In the holidays we are always in a hurry to get presents for our friends, family members that sometimes we don’t stop to think what is really important to do this time of year… Don’t get me wrong, I love getting presents and giving them too but presents are material things and after a while you stop using them… I believe that christmas is not only about presents but about a spiritual growth we should take, a time to think about our actions and how we can improve so when New Years comes along we are ready to begin a new chapter of our lives with a different conscience, a more mature one. Today the 12th day until christmas I encourage you to take a little time off and go do a charity work.Depending on the place you choose, you will realize how different their lives are from ours, some of the children can’t even ask for a present because they know they won’t be able to get it, for others more elderly this time of year brings sadness because is a time where they should be with their families and sometimes they are completely alone.
So I really do encourage all of you to try to take some time off from all that shopping and make a change in someone’s life.
FOR YOU GUYS THAT DON’T REALLY LIKE THE COUNTDOWNS HERE IS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR…. TALKING FASHION… THIS WINTER SEASON IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BUY THE SUPPER CASUAL AND TRENDY OUTFIT, DEFINITELY GO FOR AN ALPES LOOK WITH THOSE KNITTED COLORFUL JERSEYS, HATS, SHIRTS, AND EVEN SKIRTS. IF YOU HAVE THEM ALREADY TAKE THEM TO THE STREETS WHERE YOU WILL BE A FASHIONISTA….
13 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS
TO SPEAD A LITTLE OF THE HOLIDAY CHEER,I FOUND A POEM FOR YOU TO HEAR… ( ME TRYING TO RHYME…)
ANYWAYS I HOPE ALL OF YOU LIKE THIS ONE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES…IT’S PERFECT FOR GREETING CARDS AND SINCE IT DOESNT HAVE A SPECIFIC HOLIDAY ITS GOOD FOR EVERYONE!
We’re thinking of you this time of year,
Wishing you happiness, joy, and cheer.
May all your days be warm and bright,
And your nights enhanced by holiday light.
Enjoy your delectable holiday foods,
As parties and gifts create holiday moods.
Favorite people play a meaningful part,
While treasured rituals warm your heart.
You are special to us in many ways,
So we wish you Happy Holidays!

Then in the result it gives you the value price, the best price they could find it in the internet and they even have the link where you can buy it!! So lets get searching for our biggest desires, wishes, and likes!!!
15 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS !
FIRST DAY OF 15 DAYS !!! CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN IS READY FOR TAKE OFF!!!
DAY 15: LET’S GET READY FOR THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO DO THAT THEN DECORATIONS???? THIS SATURDAY MORNING IF YOU HAVENT ALREADY… GET THOSE BOXES OUT OF THE ATTIC AND START THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT!! A GOOD WAY TO DECORATE IS BY ADDING DETAILS THAT YOU CAN MAKE BY HAND! LIKE RED PAPER MACHE FLOWERS OR CREATING YOUR OWN UNIQUE STOCKING!!! I FOUND THIS GREAT VIDEO THAT HAS JUST THE ANSWER FOR CREATING AMAZING PAPER SNOWFLAKES THAT CAN BE HUNG ANYWHERE IN THE HOUSE AND MAKES A VERY CUTE HOME-MADE DECORATION!!
People say that christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and to tell you the truth I agree 100%, I guess when I was little this time felt so magical, like anything was possible of course throughout the years my mind changed and matured… but I think as you grow older the more you want to feel that magic again… Something I never got to do when I was young was the advent calender, too bad I am a little late to start now but then I had the idea of creating a christmas countdown so we can all get into the holiday and vacation spirit!! I hope even people who don’t celebrate christmas join in because if you look at it another way is a process of preparing for a new year to come and who doesn’t believe in New Years?!?!? I really do hope you guys enjoy it and get excited about it and hopefully in the end you will learn something new about this whole experience, that’s really what my goal is… to learn something new about my character and along the way leave footprints behind so I can make the last few weeks of 2011 unforgettable. I invite all of you to join in and get ready for some christmas spirit by participating in the CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN!! ( Might sound corny but just give it a try!!)
