Holiday Fun

This evening we had a Christmas party with our bible study, and so I used the excuse that I “had” to bake for some other last minute orders this week as an excuse to go ALL out on sweets for tonight!

Peppermint cupcakes, peppermint bark, almond roca, sugar cookies (I also made several dozen for the kids and I to decorate this weekend!), and of course the french macarons I whipped up yesterday! (So sorry I don’t have a recipe that is “fool” proof. Mine is perfect in MY kitchen, I’ve never gotten it to work so well anywhere else!!!) So much fun! Bonus? My Christmas candy for Christmas Eve is now complete and in the freezer. SCORE!

What I wore to bake (and dance around the kitchen of course!):

I am SO EXCITED for these!! Although I’m honestly wondering if I should do the “Love” in clear OR a light sapphire Crystal. Decisions decisions!!! I do aspire to finish these by the end of the weekend. *cross fingers*

Only 11 days until Christmas! Are you ready?!

Until next time,

Fall Break

Yes, you read that right, fall break! Yesterday my kids started their two-week fall break. From what I understand there was quite the cheering going on at their school when that bell rang! Sadly (or perhaps not, as my ears aren’t ringing!!) I was not there to witness that event! I’ve been in Orange County since late Wednesday evening (as in, 11pm!) for a work thing.

But there are perks to my job, running errands in Orange County is way more fun than where we live! We don’t have a whole foods, and that means we don’t see these types of things:

Bacon caramels?! Really?! I bought my husband some.

Finding a new Kate Spade dress I am IN LOVE with, only to find out the smallest size is too big (this was pinned, I am SO sad!!! Hello eBay hunting!!)

And clothing recaps. I’ve been back on a dress kick, probably because it’s super easy and kind of mindless!

Not sure how today is going to go, we seem to be moving slow! No solid plans, just waiting to see if I’m needed (hopefully not!) and working our way towards breakfast. Our hotel has amazing breakfast, mmmmm!
