Christmas Archives - Evolved Mommy
Target sent me a gift card to try out their new line of #HilariousHoliday ugly Christmas sweaters, so because I like to take seemingly delightful family experiences and make them weird, I made Steve wear this needlepoint creation to pick …
This week I asked my friend Amy from OurEverydayDinners.com about the best treats to leave for Santa, the Reindeer and the elves. Amy is my go-to girl for all things food because I am lazy and don’t want to spend hours of my life searching my Pinterest boards. I pin things on Pinterest, but then never ever go back to them. That’s a different topic for a different day, though. Back to Santa…
Steve and I were headed to my parents’ lake house in Scott, AR, on Christmas day 2007. The lake may seem like an odd choice for holiday festivities, but it truly is gorgeous. And my dad is the Clark Griswold of dock lights. Well… if Clark only had one strand of those big colorful lights and an oversized faded red bow.

A couple years ago Tori Spelling had this fabulous baby shower that I was not invited to, but read about in People or In Style or some such guilty pleasure favorite magazine of mine, where she was given Piggy Paint.
This Thanksgiving we got to spend quality time with both families (Steve’s and mine), which doesn’t normally happen.
We played games, ate Thanksgiving dinner (even though it did not contain officially sanctioned dishes like green bean casserole or corn), took a road trip, went to a tree farm and drank lots of coffee.

Okay, well some sweet happened this week. And some crazy.

Y’all know I just adore my friend P. Allen Smith for being a gracious host. The way he treats every visitor as if they were the most important person to ever step across his threshold is inspiring to someone like me, who tends to forget to offer company so much as a glass of water.
Do guys want anything other than tech? No. Not really. Everything on Steve’s Chistmas wish list is tech-related in one way or another. I’ve done very subjective research to come up with the following list. How exactly did I arrive at these items? I asked Chris, Cade, Dustin, Steve, Neil and other random men (some of whom were complete strangers) what they want. This is what I got.
‘Tis the season. Guys: pay attention here. These are the things your s.o. (please email me if you don’t know what this means) wants. These are the best Christmas gifts for moms (or just women, we don’t discriminate against to the dog- or cat-lovin’ ladies out there who are not interested in sippy cups and sleepless nights).
