Eat Your Black-Eyed Peas at Midnight for Good Luck! Happy New Year!

Who’s ready to ring in 2021? I know I am! Woo Hoo! I am so ready to just put 2020 in the rear-view mirror, be thankful for making it through intact (and with much gained new gratitude), and head into this new year with very high hopes.

And with high hopes at the beginning of every new year, eating black-eyed peas right after Midnight has been a family tradition that my husband and I have acknowledged since we were first married, 37 years ago. This came from his dear mother, Reba, who always told us to “Eat your black-eyed peas at Midnight for good luck!” It’s one of those southern “thangs” I suppose. I know it dates back to the Civil War. But for us it’s just fun, and something that we look forward to every New Year’s Eve. Which, I’ve got to get mine going here in just a few. I like to let them cook long and slow so they get thickened up really good, and they are hot and ready to serve right after the stroke of Midnight.

Do not want to leave anything to chance this year, right? 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s celebration and that you have family traditions of your own that you enjoy. I’d love to hear all about your traditions. Feel free to leave a comment below!

Cheers to you and yours! Cheers to a very prosperous 2021 for all of us! Cheers to good health for all in 2021!

Happy Holiday Kisses and Cheers to a Happy New Year!

Iconic Avon Lipsticks

Happy Fri-Yay everyone! It’s now December 13th – Wowsy! Christmas is definitely sneaking right up on us.

Hope you have your lists covered and goodies for everyone. But if not, do not panic — You still have a bit of time to order some fabulous and unique gifts from Avon, like these super fabulous Iconic Avon Lipsticks. Believe me, you’ll not find these any where else, and they are a limited time specialty product, for this Holiday Season.

Iconic Avon Lipsticks

These beauties are available in 3 different shades: Natural Willow, Wild Rose, and Crimson Carnation and each come in it’s own decorative box. The lipstick tubes are all in vintage Avon prints. So cool! These are listed at $9.00 each.

I will be scarce this coming week, getting ready for the holidays myself, so I wanted to show you the Avon shipping schedule map once more.

This is all color coded by region, and you can see the cut-off dates for each to receive your packages in time for Christmas. You may still shop Avon after these dates of course, just know that your package will most likely arrive after Christmas. But hey, grab yourself some New Year cheer, and let the happy mail keep arriving!

Cheers to You Champagne Shower Gel

I wish you all the Merriest of Merries and hope you enjoy your holiday celebrations! I also wish you all the Happiest of Happy New Years! I plan to be back here and back in action before New Years, but be sure to grab yourself some cheerful Cheers to You Champagne Shower Gel to lift your spirits even more and have that already on its way to you. These would also be fabulous Holiday and New Years Hostess Gifts, right? These come in either Prosecco or Rose’ and are listed for just $7.00. So yay!

Okay gang, I shall close for now. Have fun doing your last minutes and I hope you take advantage of the fun shopping Avon is offering, I know I have, and I think I’ll squeeze in one more order as well.

Happy Holidays!!!!! And many many thank yous!!!!
