It has been an extremely busy week, but I am happy to say that I lost 3.8 pounds this week! And even though this week has been loaded with fun, I’m looking forward to relaxing by the fireplace tomorrow as my boyfriend and I along with his family decorate our Christmas tree.
And to get into the mood, I’ve started decorating…and my favorite new decoration this year the homemade ‘Countdown to Christmas’ calendar I made this week. I came up with the idea of making a unique calendar after seeing other calendars made by my friends, Jen
I was telling my friend, who owns a spectacular chocolate covered pretzel business called Heavenly Pretzels
that I wanted to make a special calendar. And she suggested a chocolate covered pretzels calendar. Check out the website
I just finished for her. Seriously friends…I cannot express how great these pretzels taste ( and they are only a couple of points each.) So, of course, I fell totally in love with the idea and I finished it tonight. She filled each box with hand-dipped pretzels for me, and we were both thrilled with the outcome.
Obviously, I have to post several pictures of it so here they are:

(And it’s not quite complete.)
Tomorrow I plan to make a big bow for it before hanging it in my den. I also plan to add a decorative pouch that will hang from the bottom so my boyfriend, my dad and I can enjoy these tasty treats on Christmas day. I’m enjoying the holidays so much already, and I think it is just going to get better! Have I ever mentioned how thankful I am for my life? 🙂
Do you have an advent calendar? Are you into full Christmas mode too?
