Blog Update

Hey guys!! I just wanted to get on here and explain my absence. For the past few weeks the hubby and I have been going through some things and we have just been caught up in it all. We also have been trying to enjoy the holidays and our families. So, in lieu of all of THAT, I have been MIA from my blog. I want to tell you all that I am so grateful and appreciatitive of everyone who takes the time to stop by my blog. It really means the world to me! With that being said, I will be BACK in the new year! It will be an exciting year for my family as well as the blog. I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and a Very Happy New Year! I will talk to all very soon!!
Thanks so much,

Hello Everyone! Sorry this is a day late, this week got away from me! I can't believe Christmas is two weeks away, where did December go? Here in Upstate NY we have been having some crazy warm weather so it hasn't really felt like Christmas. I am hoping and wishing for a White Christmas in these parts. Here are a few things that I have been loving this week! I would love to know what your favorites are this week!

Happy Hump Day Everyone! This past weekend I went to the in-laws and we created homemade ornaments for the holidays. We also made some Peppermint Bark, which was delicious by the way and so easy to make! So this week I went searching for recipes that I thought you would enjoy! I stumbled across Bright, Bold, and Beautiful, a blog created by Laura Trevey, a maker, a watercolor artist, a content creator and a Doer. Her blog consists of DIY, Home Decor, and Design Inspiration. I hope you enjoy her recipe and I would love to hear if you create it and have it during your holiday celebrations!

Boy, How is December here already? I am so tired and I have just barely started my Christmas Shopping! I do enjoy this season so much though and it's times like these that make you realize how important family is and how no gift or sale is worth the time spent with family and friends. So now that my RANT is done,  here are a few things I have been loving this week!
