I feel like you’re either team candy corn or not. There’s no in between. It’s strange, because I never loved candy corn as a kid. I always thought it was waxy and flavorless, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve started liking it more and more. (What does that say about my tastebuds?) If you’re on the pro-candy corn train, these candy corn Halloween cocktails are right up your alley, and if not, vodka is involved so what’s not to like? 😉 [Read more…]
Easter might look a little different this year, but I still wanted to sneak a fun easter egg decorating tutorial into the mix that you guys STILL have time to do before Sunday! These Easter eggs are ready to party , even though they’re stuck at home, and yours can become party animal Easter eggs too with a few simple supplies and some creativity!
Can’t believe I’m about to type this, but another year has came and went. It’s been a very busy year for me, but mostly full of all good things. Hopefully your year has been full of good things too, and if not, it’s time to leave the old one in the past and welcome in a new one! If you’re planning to usher in the new year with family and friends, make sure to download this printable New Years Eve party banner for some easy party decor!
This week I’ve been wrapping and shipping out Christmas gifts like a mad women and have been trying to plan out the last details for our Elf on the Shelf. My stepson also notified me that chocolate chip cookies are the ONLY acceptable option to bake for Santa Claus (since they’re his favorite), so I’m on the hunt for the perfect recipe. If you’re still in the mood for some holiday baking, this gingerbread bundt cake recipe should definitely be added to your list. It tastes like how I imagine the holiday season would, if the holiday season had a taste. It’s got all of those warm and spicy notes and the glaze is sooooo good too.
There’s just something so magical about the scents that bring back so many memories during the holiday season. One of those scents for me is cinnamon roasted almonds being made at the local mall. Granted, I probably loved being at the mall and shopping just as much, but we’d always buy a little paper cone filled with these amazing cinnamon and sugar coated nuts every year, and it’s one of those traditions that I grew up loving and associated with the holidays.
Now that I’m older, I try to avoid the mall crowds as much as possible, ha, but I still LIVE for this sweet treat, so I found a way to make my own cinnamon roasted almonds at home, which I can make in my pj’s without even having to leave the house. The recipe is so easy to make and your house will smell amazing while they bake too! [Read more…]
Now that we’ve covered the girls and the guys, it’s time to talk about some stocking stuffer ideas for kids! I wanted to put together some items that aren’t sweets and are things that kids will actually use. Some of them will even help your lives go a little easier too 😉 Getting them out from in front of a screen and doing something different was also up there on the top of my list, so a lot of these items are great for families, letting them get creative, or learning a few things too.

I’m back again today with another round of ideas to make your holiday shopping that much easier! This time around I’ve put together a TON of stocking stuffer ideas for him! (I shared stocking stuffer ideas for her yesterday, if you missed it!)
Every year, I really try to pick items that my husband will actually want to use and not just fill his stocking with junk because it’s easy. So if you’re on the hunt for some great ideas, I’ve got you, and the man in your life, covered! 😉
Tis’ the season for gift giving and one of my VERY favorite things to shop for is stocking stuffers! I love thinking outside of the box and filling up stockings with gifts that people will actually use and enjoy. It’s too easy to fill a stocking with junk that’s just going to sit and get dusty, so take the time to put a little more energy into them and grab some unexpected stocking stuffer gifts that will be a hit! I’ll be sharing 3 different stocking stuffer gift lists this week, and today it’s all about stocking stuffer ideas for her! [Read more…]
