Merry Christmas From Mindi!


I am checking out to spend Christmas Eve and Day with my family!

It’s been a crazy year this year and I want you to know how much I appreciate each and every one of you. This past summer, I made some decisions about what I want to do with this site and have slowly been making some changes and the responses have been positive. I will detail those changes and what you can expect from this site going forward in post early next week!

I have always thought that once we get past the “free or expedited shipping times”, it is time to take a break and spend time with family. Once the presents are unwrapped on Christmas Day, let’s just all chillax with a glass of champange (with a shot of Chambord in it), tuck our feet under our legs and laugh our butts off with family telling those “remember when…?” stories.

In the meantime, please enjoy a video that I love so much (and have posted every Christmas Eve since December 2008), I have a Hallmark ornament of this exact same speech on my desk 24/7/365!

Merry Christmas!

Sounds of Christmas | Do You Hear What I Hear?


Whitney Houston was taken from us way to soon…but her version of this song endures!

And yes – I do start filling up with love and thoughts of peace when I hear this song. It goes against all of my basic snarky natures!


We get too wrapped up in the shopping and cooking frenzy that is the Christmas Season. From now until Christmas, please take 2-5 minutes to relax and enjoy some of my favorite Christmas songs each year!

Sounds of Christmas | The Little Drummer Boy


This song is quite possibly my favorite Christmas song EVER, but my kids just don’t get it. I think that they don’t get the significance of Bing & Bowie doing a song together!

I hope that, in 20 years, they too will appreciate all the Christmas songs that I loved!
