Getting in the Christmas Spirit - Guest Post

Hello Eat.Pray.Love.Run readers!! It's Lia here from life is aMAYESing!

Leslie is crazy busy right now with work, selling a house/building a new house and everything else in life! So I thought I'd take over her bloggity blog for a day.

Leslie and I have never actually met in person, but her husband {Chris} and my husband {Corby} were fraternity brother at Texas A&M! So I feel like Leslie and I have known each other for a while. And I know that when we do finally meet, we will be GREAT friends!!

I know that Thanksgiving is a week away, but I am already in the CHRISTMAS spirit! I love Christmas so I am going to share some fun decorating ideas and recipes for those holiday parties that are coming up!

I love the idea of using peppermints to decorate with!
