Dear Santa

by HEAB on December 8, 2010

Some Christmas gift ideas…

1 ) Marty’s Blogger Babes Calendar…C’mon, it’s for a good cause.

2 ) Books I’ve enjoyed lately…

Google Juice – Yes, it’s my brother’s book, but if you want to get noticed on Google, it’s a must read.


The Great Fitness Experiment: One Year of Trying Everything – Join Charlotte and her Gym Buddies as they try a different workout every month for a year, everything from Cross-Fit to the Primal Blueprint. Find out what gets results and what doesn’t.


It Gets Easier!…And Other Lies We Tell New Mothers, A Fun Practical Guide To Becoming A Mom – A real and honest look at labor and those first few months of motherhood. Wish I would have read this months ago!


Real Food: What To Eat & Why – Love Nina Planck’s philosophy.


Recovering Ramona – A story about a young woman who tackles her mom issues and her fears about starting a future family with the help of an eccentric hippie and a 1986 Volvo. I’ve been reading the released chapters online, and you can now pre-order a copy of the published book. All orders will be received before Christmas.


3 ) Justin’s Chocolate Almond Butter – My favorite chocolate nut butter out there!

Use it to make Almond Joy Oatmeal


Old fashioned oats, unsweetened shredded coconut, and Justin’s – YUM!

4 ) Aerolatte Milk Frother – I use this all the time for lattes and whipped cream.


Use it for making High Tea Oats


Favorite jam for High Tea Oats?

5 ) Hot Pepper Raspberry Preserves


6 ) The Best Robe Ever – Seriously, I live in mine. Ask CD.


7 ) Photo Editing Services from Leah Walton – All HEAB readers receive a special holiday discount through December 15, 2010.

8 ) Family Photo Session from Emily Smallcomb – Emily lives in Knoxville, TN but is willing to travel to surrounding areas, and she has graciously offered all HEAB readers a holiday discount of 10% off any photo session if booked by January 31, 2011. Thanks Emily!

9 ) Aden + Anais Muslin Swaddle Wrap – Breathable material and large enough to make the perfect burrito bambino. These are Summer’s favorite blankets, and I would buy them for any mama-to-be or new mom.

No matter how well I swaddle her, she ALWAYS manages to get her arms above her head. :)

10 ) And who doesn’t love some granola made with love?


So tell me, what are you asking Santa for this year? I would like one of these. :)
