ETC: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Three things have happened in the last couple days to get me thinking about Christmas already.

1. These Lindt peppermint chocolates truffles, with 60% dark cocoa! If I was Oprah, I'd be giving them out on My Favorites Things episode. Oh, my.

I bought a bag, and I keep them in my underwear drawer, and every now and then I go to my room and pop one in my mouth. One will fit perfectly and no one else can see what I'm eating. They are my own special treat and I do not share with my family, hence the hiding place

I've noticed that they are a limited time offer. I'll have to stock up.

2. It's the Blogging Advent Tour! Sign ups at Marg's and Kaliana's went fast and furious. It was fun last year to see other traditions about Christmas.

There were music posts, and movie posts, and trivia, plays, family traditions, and lots of cookie recipes. mmmm.

3. The Book Blogger Christmas Swap is being organized by Dewey and Nymeth. I always like Secret Santa at work, getting that little treat in your mailbox just makes your day. This will be my real mailbox, so even better.

Think how much fun it will be with fellow readers sharing their love of books, or just a little treat.

Check at dewey's or nymeth's for more details, but the important thing is to send an email by November 18.

Looks like lots of interesting blogging activity going on in the weeks leading up to Christmas.


  1. I totally understand the hiding the chocolate in your mouth thing! I am completely guilty of stashing something away from my family and saving it for myself. This is because I have two boys and a husband who will devour anything yummie before I even get two!

  2. Yum! Those Lindt chocolates sound really good!

    Thanks for blogging the Advent tour for us! I can't wait until the tour starts and we see what treats everyone has in store for us!

  3. I'm one of those weird people who don't like the combination of mint and chocolate :P But I like the idea of having a secret treat just for yourself!

    Thanks for spreading the word about the Christmas swap :)

  4. Hooray for peppermint and chocolate!

  5. Oh, yeah. Those chocolate truffles are the best. Craving!!

  6. Yummy! Those mint truffles sound delicious! I'll have to see if I can find some!
