A Christmas Give-Away and Randomness

Please pop over to Kristens for a very cute Christmas give-away she is having!

How was everyone's Thanksgiving? Ours was so nice!
We have bought a live tree this year and put it up, it is decorated with all of our kids ornaments and a hodge-podge of a collection from my Mom and Richard's Mom. I will be taking pics and a video later this week.

I have been taking advantage of the many coupons that are out there for Bath&Body Works and have gotten so many fun smelling soaps and lotions! What is your Fav. from Bath&Body Works this year? I love the new Twisted Peppermint and have gone thru 2 of their candles so far.

Our weather here is cold, wet, rainy and we are dropping down to low 30 tonight which will then turn all of this rain into Snow!! So not ready for it as we have yet to really get the barn ready for Winter.

I'm off to start my new book tonight, I am starting to read any of the Amish Holiday books I can find to put me in the Christmas spirit. What are you Reading right now?

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!!

Enjoy the day with Family and Friends!

We are watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with hot chocolate for the lil kids and coffee for me and eating warm Pumpkin bread. It's raining and cold outside, perfect for a Holiday get together! We have my mom coming over later and I hope to put up the Christmas tree later!

~Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball~

Can mysterious matchmaking booksellers bring two lonely hearts together in time for Christmas?
In a sleepy, snow-covered city, Cora Crowder is busy preparing for the holiday season. Searching for a perfect gift, a fortuitous trip to Warner, Werner, and Wizbotterdad’s (a most unusual bookshop) leads to an unexpected encounter with co-worker Simon Derrick. And the surprise discovery of a ticket for a truly one-of-a-kind Christmas Ball.

Every year, the matchmaking booksellers of the Sage Street bookshop host an enchanting, old-fashioned Christmas Ball for the romantic matches they’ve decided to bring together.

This year, will Simon and Cora discover a perfect chemistry in their opposite personalities and shared faith? Or will the matchmakers’ best laid plans end up ruining everything this holiday?

It was fun curling up on the couch reading this book while the house was quiet. The pace was fast and lighthearted. I enjoyed reading about the budding relationship between Cora and Simon who have worked along side of each other but never took the time to look up and notice, really notice one another until fate jumped in. Along the way of getting to know one another they encounter how to trust their feelings and to deal with some rude family members while Fate makes sure to bump them together at every spare moment.

 Thank You Blogging For Books for sending me this delightful book to review.
