Good morning

I have been a bad bad blogger and I'm sorry! With all the new things going on over here I barely have time to check my email let alone blog about it.

But - the good news is, I'm making time! This week is the start of something new and I couldn't be more excited about it. The anticipation and lead up to this coming weekend has been killing me and it's finally here. So, with sparkly gold nails, a cute dress and a 4 hour car ride...I'm saying wahoo! to new adventure.

Expect me back tomorrow with some killer cookie and cupcake recipes. It's the holidays and I have many things to share :)

holiday love

This is my favorite time of year. I love every bit of what comes along with the holidays, the shopping, the baking, the time spent with friends and family...I love it all. My tree is up, my fireplace is burning and there are presents under my tree. All that is missing is a bit of cocoa with home made marshmallows!
Some other things I'm loving this holiday season...

Gorgeous table! I love the colors so much. Cool and cozy. Perfect.

Really pretty. I have a thing of Christmas balls on my mantel, I'll be adding some battery operated lights into it today!

Beautiful wrapping. I usually go a bit more colorful, but this is still pretty awesome. Sometimes simple and gorgeous is perfect.

It's a little girl, candyland Christmas! I love this, even with a pink Christmas tree!!

Gorgeous simple decorated cupcakes. I love simple and pretty they are.

Ok, not Christmas but so perfect.

So true.

I love this!

city sidewalks...

On Saturday morning, I got up bright and early to head into the city. My older sister, Jenn, is a pre-k teacher and takes her class of 4 year olds to see the tree and Santa. My mom, cousin Dean and I joined in on the trip to share in some of the merriment!
