Bailey’s Chocolate Mint Milkshake is everything you could want in a milkshake. This holiday drink is so rich and creamy, you won’t want to stop at one!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..except, wait. Not really. It’s actually looking nothing like Christmas around our house, and I’m convinced it’s because of all the warm weather that just keeps sticking around! Apparently when you’re born and raised in Wisconsin, where winter is cold and Christmas is white, anything less just doesn’t feel quite right. How am I supposed to get into the Christmas spirit when it’s still raining outside…..?
I’m honestly starting to think I might need to just fake it. Just suck it up, turn on some Christmas tunes, start a fire, and get to decorating. Because the truth is, whether I’m ready or not, Christmas will be here in 24 short days! Even if there’s no snow to welcome it.
So here’s the plan. I’ll give it a couple more days. Because really? Who wants to fake it? But ONLY a couple more days….and in the mean time, I’ll see if I can’t muster up some genuine Christmas spirit that works with the weather we’re having! Warmish weather. Perfect for…..ice cream!!!
