Christmas In July! Get Ready!

Some of you just read the title, rolled your eyes and are now clicking out of here and that's okay. This is for those of you who got a little excited thinking about Christmas and all the excitement it brings.

I say it every year. I'm going to get a jump start on Christmas and then I never do. But this year is different. I've actually started making things now and you know what? I'm having so much fun!

So what is this all about? Well I know for a fact that Kathy and I are going to be showing you a little something Christmasy all next week. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. And none of it should involve you having to get anything out of the attic to participate! LOL!

I've also noticed on other blogs that they are doing a Christmas in July as well.
So why not get a little jump start on Christmas and join me next week!

OH Gee! Hmmm....Did I mention there would be a giveaway? Yuppers! And BOY is it cute.
(AND it's going to be tucked neatly in one of the posts so you might actually have to read them!) LOL!

See you Monday!



  1. Ya! I can't wait. I Love this post I really really really d. I was just asking my hubby..."is it too early to start shopping for Christmas and buying decorations??" I can't wait!!!

  2. I'm cringing at the thought of Christmas (and even Thanksgiving) and here's why. It means winter!!! We just got through what seems to have been an 8 month long winter (October through May), and I'm just all about heat and sunshine right now. (I'm ALWAYS about heat and sunshine!!)

    Now...if we are able to move in the next couple months, I'll actually get excited about Christmas, because we'll be in a warmer climate AND we'll be able to have Christmas with family.

    But even if you're posting Christmas, I will still be popping by, because, after all, you are my friend.

    Have a great weekend.


  3. I normally start planning for Christmas in July, so bring it on!

  4. "We wish you a Merry Christmas....." I do so love Christmas music...because of you I just put some on this morning..lol

    Hubbie came home from the hay field..I was in our bedroom...singing my head off....I turned around..and He said"Have you lost it?" It is 97 degrees out..and you are singing Christmas songs....I told him it was Kim's fault she started it..He said started what...Why Christmas in July silly.
    He said you tell Kim..You are not decorating this house this early....lol Men!!!!!

    Then it dawned on me..he thought I meant our daughter Kim...lol..so you are off the hook!

    Hugs..looking forward to next week!
    I too have a surprise for Wednesday morning!!Great minds think Alike!

  5. Kim,

    I love this idea! I might just have to incorporate it as well. I love the idea of tucking the giveaway into the post just to see how many people notice.

    I used to do that when I left my employees voicemails and found out so many of them were deleting them before even hearing it. I started adding giveaways in the message and only those that listened and responded were rewarded, kinda like God in a way.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  6. For us... Christmas in July means giving extra money away for people who are in need this time of the year.

    I tuck things away all year... I'm behind, but I love to see what I've forgotten that I've bought.

    I liked this. :-)

  7. Oh you are sooo amazing :) I CAN'T WAIT! When the two of you put your heads together it means it's gonna be awesome!

  8. How are you reading my mind? My kids keep watching this Christmas movie on Netflix and I am thinking about 100 ideas of things I want to start working on for Christmas. I really want to have a homemade Christmas this year. I can't wait to see what you have been working on!

  9. Can' wait to see what you have planned for Christmas in July

  10. Maybe it's a southern thing..... cause us northerners associate Christmas with some bone chilling/fierce weather.

    You aren't too far off with your preparation.
    Even the stores in our capitalistic culture have put Halloween stuff out for sale already.

  11. I love Christmas at any time. bring it on...:)

  12. I do love Christmas, but it's just too early for me!! I'll follow along though and maybe you'll inspire me...to write down an idea to try later, much later - LOLOL!

    Big why-can't-we-have-Thanksgiving-in-July-since-I-have-a-turkey-in-the-freezer size hugs to you! Love you my friend!!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
