It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas // Link-up and Giveaway!

It's definitely starting to look and feel like Christmas around here. My mother has decorated the house, the Christmas tree stands glittering in the living room, the smells of cookies fill the air, and carols are played softly in the background. Giggles are stifled as secret packages arrive and are secretly stowed away. My sisters are hard at work on learning their recitations and carols for the Christmas Eve service at church.

And all the while, I sit in my room like Scrooge, studying away. Well, not quite...I've definitely gotten into the spirit of the season, baking cookies, watching Christmas movies, and listening to my favorite Christmas music, not to mention practicing my choir pieces! And I've almost got all my Christmas shopping done and all my presents are nearly ready to go!(:

Anyway! My friend Tori, from Fashion, Trends, and More, and I got together and decided it might be fun to throw a little blog party to celebrate the season. So we're having a holiday-themed link-up! And to make it a little more exciting, we're also making it a contest--at the end of the week we'll choose our two favorite posts and one winner will receive a $5 Amazon gift card from me, and the other will receive free ad space from Tori! Fun, right? All you have to do is link up one of your holiday-themed can be anything from favorite recipes, decorations, an outfit perfect for a Christmas party, a roundup of your favorite movies and songs from this time of year--anything!

All you have to do to enter is:

1. Follow my blog.

2. Follow Tori's blog.

3. Link up your posts!

Have fun! If you want, grab a button and link to us in your post to spread the word, and be sure to visit some of the other links!

I can't wait to see all of your posts!


  1. Giveaways are such fun! I hope yours goes very well!

    Oh yes, and though we weren't speaking of Howl here, I was meaning to ask, have you read the other two books in the series? And if so, how much is he in those, if at all?

  2. Hey Victoria! Terrible timing, I know, but I've tagged you with a Christmas tag over at my blog ... :-)

    Merry Christmas!!
