Gingerbread House Making Extravaganza


4 years ago my hubby and I decided we should start a new tradition of making gingerbread houses. We invited our dear friends Wright & Alice over to join in the fun. Needless to say our house didn’t remain standing, icing was everywhere and it was basically a disaster. A fun disaster nonetheless.


This failure made us not want to do it ever again. Until this year. Every year Wright & Alice have a holiday party. Our friends Patrick & Megan were there and we all started talking about our gingerbread house disaster but yet somehow we all decided to do it again. This time with homemade pizza and brownies.


Here is a video of our gingerbread house making progress and the final product. I made this video on my Sony Vaio (post on computer coming soon).



We had a blast this time around. I really think they’ve advanced the gingerbread houses tremendously since 4 years ago. We’ve decided to keep it a early tradition.


Ok so tell me, do you have a favorite? #1? #2? or #3?

My New Favorite Thing – Homedic Back Massager

Recently my husband and I were at my sister in laws house. I turned and said to my nephew “boy my back hurts” and he said “try this”. “This” was the Homedics Shiatsu Pillow Back Massager with Heat. It was amazing! You know how when you go to get a pedicure and you get the “good chair”? My definition of a good chair is one that works my muscles deep. This device is like my “good chair”.

As soon as we got home I looked it up, but didn’t purchase. I figured my sister in law or someone will probably purchase it for me for Christmas. Then my husband and I went to Kohls and saw it there. But it was priced higher than the Homedics website. I’m not about to get ripped off.

Needless to say I haven’t been able to stop talking about it and saying how I really hope Santa or someone brings me one this year. Fast forward to last night. I’m in the kitchen making chicken cutlets, roasted potatoes and roasted asparagus with garlic and my husband comes home. He says close your eyes. I thought ohhh he brought home flowers how sweet. I closed my eyes, but didn’t hear the crunching of the wrapping that comes on flowers. Something heavy landed in my arms. It was NOT flowers! He said “open your eyes”. I opened my eyes and couldn’t have been more excited. He surprised me with the Homedics massager.

I told him this was the best surprise ever (next to getting engaged). It really was. I used it three times last night and it was incredible! I highly recommend this product to anyone. It is the perfect item to use in between massage appointments or even instead of one, it’s just that good. It really is the best thing ever… next to my amazing husband.
