currently crushing on I



It’s finally cold and sort of snowy! Ew, I know, so cliche and what a snoozefest to talk about the weather but we all secretly kind of hope for a white Christmas, right?! Whomp whomp, not going to happen here because it’s going back up to 60. I hate it.

What are you up to?! Are you ridiculously excited for next week? Done with shopping? I am going to do a bunch of wrapping today. And a bunch of shopping. And maybe a bunch of drinking. Oh and yesterday I made about 10 different cookie doughs and need to bake them off. As an update to my list, I made LEMON CRINKLE COOKIES. I’d like to faceplant into a batch of them. Be sure to follow along on instagram and snapchat for weekend behind the scenes.

Um, also! Cheesy Pull Apart Garlic Bread. I’m showing you how to do it in a video on facebook!

Over on the baby page, I shared Max’s one year update and our current baby favorites, in case you need some gift ideas.


my face is melting over these chicken and waffle sliders. i don’t know if i’ve ever wanted anything more.

this recipe covers nearly everything that i love: mustard devil eggs with crispy chicken skin. crying.

this creamy white bean tomato soup is exactly what i’ll be craving after christmas cookies.

holy adorable: ampersandwich cookies. and the flavor is awesome too.

i very much wish that i had enough patience to make this DIY wooden bead garland.
