Snow, Beautiful Snow!

is mostly gone. :( It snowed for 24 hours from Saturday night to Sunday night. We got 6+ inches and everything was so beautiful! Then is started raining. And today the sun is out and it's 50 degrees. It feels like spring! Too weird!

But in the spirit of Christmas...

How many of you know that Michael W. Smith is one of my all time favorite artists? Other than my best friend, maybe no one! I guess I should have put that in the random things about me post...
Well, 2 weeks ago I read on a couple of blogs that Reunion Records was looking for bloggers to "test" his new Christmas CD in exchange for a review. I hurried to sign up because they were only taking the first 150... and guess what? I got one! Now, I haven't had a new CD in probably 2 years so this is exciting news people!
The requirements were that I listen to it while doing something Christmasy. Today I finally had a chance to listen to it in my car. While looking at the beautiful snow covered hills and driving to visiting my grandmother and help her with her Christmas cards. Is that Christmasy enough for you? :) I was surprised because this CD is a lot more instrumental that I was expecting. But you know, it was exactly what I needed. I have been in a funk this fall and totally not feeling up to Christmas (lets just say I haven't bought any Christmas present yet... yikes!) but it was peaceful and relaxing with a lot of classical Christmas music like excerpts from the Nutcracker and What Child is This. Very soothing!
So if you'd like to check it out for yourself just follow the link below, or the one in my sidebar!

Also on the Christmas note, here are a couple of fun contests!

Yes, They are All Mine is giving away the most adorable baby Christmas outfit! I don't want to win it for myself, because obviously my son is too big for it! But I have two girlfriends with baby girls... now to decide which one gets it! Probably the one with the itty bitty baby! You have to enter by Friday if you're interested!

The Domestic Diva is giving away a Tigger and Pooh Christmas movie. This one would be going to some little kiddos I know who adore Pooh! This contest ends next Monday.


There's also a Parents.com giveaway at DE Reviews for a fruits puzzle and a little garage with toy cars! They are seriously cute and look really good (I'm into educational toys!) This ends Friday.


  1. I was suprised that there was a lot of instrumental music to. I enjoyed it I just found it interesting.

  2. I love Michael W. Smith (and he's a cutie too!). I have loved his music since high school. I'll go check this cd out...I'm sure I'll love it too :)

    And lucky, lucky you!

    I received that CD, too, but I have yet to listen to it. After reading your review, I'm really looking forward to hearing it!

    Thanks for stopping by!
