Do you find that, once Halloween is over, you find yourself thinking about Christmas? I start thinking about Christmas right after Halloween. It doesn’t matter that my family is thinking about Thanksgiving right after Halloween. As I attempt to avoid eating too much leftover Halloween candy, I begin to anticipate decorating the house, putting up the tree, baking cookies, shopping, and wrapping presents. Here’s my list of top ten signs you’re obsessed with Christmas:
5. You started a holiday count down in October. You quickly become the ‘go-to person’ when a friend is curious about how many days remain until Christmas.
6. Buddy the Elf is your spirit animal.
7. Your holiday baking and Christmas shopping lists are completed before Thanksgiving.
8. Before you know it, you have a list of things you want to do so you don’t miss any of the excitement during the holidays, such as; making snow angels, going ice skating, finding light festivals, and writing Christmas cards.
9. When Thanksgiving arrives, you don’t have to worry about those Black Friday sales. You already have your gifts purchased and wrapped for everyone. In some cases, gifts have been purchased the previous January.
10. Once Thanksgiving is over and everyone else is starting to feel the pressure of the Holidays you are sitting back and singing Christmas music out loud and spreading the Christmas Cheer.
Blake Shelton is not just any 42-year-old country music singer, “Sexiest Man Alive 2017”.
Blake is one of several music singers who have gone into the Alcohol business. In March 2017 Blake launched his own Vodka Brand called Smithworks. The vodka is made from corn grown right in Blake’s home state of Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. It is bottled in Fort Smith, Arkansas. It’s an American made vodka that is distilled three times then filtered through charcoal for a nice smooth taste.
Smithworks vodka is perfect on the rocks or added to a mixed drink. There is a recipe created to Honor Blake Shelton called a “sip my country ale” which is a takeoff of one of his songs “Kiss My Country Ass”. The ingredients for the drink are simple in a mason jar you add lime wedge 2 parts of Smithworks vodka and 5 parts of ginger ale. Its something you can sip while hanging with friends on your front porch just like in the heartland.
Smithworks vodka is currently sold in 5 states, Colorado, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
Blake was quoted as saying “I grew up in Ada, Oklahoma and was raised on the values of hard work, humility and an appreciation for the simple things that make up a good life. As part of the Smithworks family, I’ve been involved in the development of the brand and I’m excited for everyone to finally taste what we’ve been crafting. At its core, Smithworks celebrates that moments in life are better spent with good people and great drinks.”

The Holidays are approaching, and many people start to feel the stress of it all. Sometimes its hard to get a handle on it all. For some reason this is the time that we are supposed to be enjoying time and laughing with family and friends. Some people have a hard time with managing it all and keeping everything under control. This is a very busy time for most people with all the parties, shopping, cooking, cleaning, and entertaining.
With some preparation you can avoid some of the stresses of the holidays and end up enjoying them instead.
To eliminate some of the stress during the holidays.
Don’t let the holidays become something you dread. This is a time for family and friends to celebrate and be happy. Learn to recognize your holiday triggers such as personal demands, financial pressures with peace and joy.
