Month: October 2016

Christmas TV Programming has begun!

Posted on Updated on

It’s so hard to believe that the time has come for the Christmas Movies to begin on The Hallmark Channel and The Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel!  If you look across the top of my blog, you will see the Christmas TV Programming Tab.  I will try to keep that updated with Christmas movies being played.  Please know that I am copying these directly from the Hallmark Channel’s website– there may be changes or updates here and there so be sure to check your guide!

I will add my printable to the Christmas Printables tab for a little list for you to write down your favorites to be sure and watch that day!



Enjoy the Season…it will go SO fast!!

Have a Joyful Day!

Jolly Holiday Prep 2K16: Day 71

Posted on Updated on

It’s the last day of October!  We are down to our last 2 months of the year.  A very busy 2 months too!  A little over 3 weeks until Thanksgiving AND Christmas is just 8 weeks away (from yesterday!) It’s going to go quickly, so be prepared and soak it all up!  These are memories that will last forever.

TODAY’S CHALLENGE:  Sit down and look at your calendar for November.  Fill in any events you have going on this month and then MEAL PLAN.  This will help you SO much.  Being prepared is 1/2 the challenge.  Take the time today to do it, you’ll be glad you did!  Make your grocery list and get what you need…for the week, 2 weeks, the month….however you grocery shop!  Just get it done and checked off your list 🙂

Have a Joyful Day and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!  The weather is beautiful here so…

TODAY’S CHALLENGE:  Get outside and put anything away for the winter that you can!  Rake leaves, clean up the yard and finish up anything outside that needs to be done.  If you feel inspired, go ahead and work on Christmas Lights outside or put Garland on your porch…things like that can be done now while the weather is decent outside!  If you wait until closer to Thanksgiving, the COLD may not inspire you to be outside to decorate.  P.S….Just because you are putting stuff out, doesn’t mean you have to turn lights on now…I don’t turn mine on until the day after Thanksgiving…you are just being PREPARED!

Whatever you do today outdoors, Have a Joyful Day and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Hope your Wednesday is going great!  We are mid way through the week already!

TODAY’S CHALLENGE:  You’ve found Christmas pj’s and slippers!  Today, I’d like to encourage you to buy the book ‘Twas the night before Christmas to read to your children on Christmas Eve!  This is something we’ve always done with our children and it’s a treasured memory and one they look forward to every Christmas Eve!

You can get the Little Golden Book for just $3.99 on Amazon, it’s very inexpensive and will give memories from  year to year!  I just tuck ours away each year with our Christmas Decorations so it’s always right where we need it to be.

Have a Joyful Day and I’ll see you tomorrow!
