Dressing for the Holidays

When looking for a holiday dress this year, I wanted something that I could be comfortable in and easily wear again throughout the year. It seems pointless to me to buy something you're only going to wear for one day. I ended up going with this dress and I am so happy with it. It's super comfortable and I can easily dress it up or down. (Also, leaves plenty of room for when my belly is about to explode from all the food 😆, kidding / not kidding).

Leopards Feet

I'm going to start off with a confession: the original outfit I had planned for this photoshoot was suppose to be my holiday outfit, which includes a dress. But because of crazy weather conditions**, I had to improvise. My holiday outfit is almost identical to this, other than that I am wearing a dress instead of jeans and a shirt.

Pumpkin Patch Hopping

 This Fall, I went to four pumpkin patches... that has to got to be my new PR. 😆 If I could, I would live on a pumpkin patch. But that's not the case, so every chance I would get, I was at the patch.

Here's a few pics from my time spent at the pumpkin patches. Enjoy!

Apple Picking

Went apple picking for the first time this fall and loved it! I didn't realize how many different kinds of apples there are. Picked a few apples to make my mothers famous apple pie. (I actually have the pie crust chilling in the fridge as we speak). After going this year, I will definitely be going every year for the rest of my life. Took a few pictures of my experience. Hope you guys enjoy! And if you've never gone apple picking, you have too! It is a must-do for fall!

Triple B Muffins

I had been wanting to share a recipe that included blueberries, but wasn't 100% positive on what to make. Then I realized I had six overripe bananas in the freezer so I knew exactly what to make.

Summer Berry Pie

I discovered this pie when I crashed my friends family reunion. There was lots of delicious food served and one of the many was this delicious pie that her mom traditionally makes every year for the fourth of July. The day was particularly hot, so it was nice to have a pie that was cold and refreshing. Its a no-bake pie with a JELL-O filling and LOTS of berries. Berries are in season, so its the perfect time of the year to make this pie! Go pick some berries at your local berry farm and make this pie for your festivities!

Life Update

I feel like this post has been long over due, but kept putting it off because a lot of uncertainty in my life right now. I've told most of my friends (which are probably most of my readers lol), and am now ready to write about it.

So I'm just going to "blurt" it out and then I'll explain...

Dress for the Dock

Shirt dresses/casual dresses are my favorite kind of dresses. Probably because they are the most comfortable (they're practically like wearing a big t-shirt) and you can't go wrong with that. Little secret: I actually hated wearing dresses as a kid, so shirt dresses are a stepping stone for me :).  I really don't have a large collection of dresses, but as Summer is creeping around the corner, it's definitely something that I'm wanting/needing more of. Check below for a few that I'm interested in right now. Enjoy!

Strawberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

I decided to take my favorite cream cheese coffee cake recipe (original) and make it into something more springy/summery by adding strawberries. The original is SO good on its own, adding strawberries to it, made it twice as good. I made this for a potluck we had on Easter and it was a big hit. I wasn't able to serve it until after everyone had eaten dinner and dessert because I didn't get it into the oven until everyone had arrived. But there was a few people that waited and didn't eat any dessert to have some room in tummies for the cake. They all said, "totally worth the wait". You should definitely make this the next time you're invited to a potluck or dinner party. With that said, check out the recipe below and below that, theres a video to help you out! Let me know what you think!

Tassel Trend

I feel like I've been seeing tassels everywhere lately. In my emails, other bloggers posts, and I think its safe to say that tassels will definitely be a trend at some point this year. I'm thinking they're going to really pick up towards summer time.

They're so adorable and fun! Whether on a bag, shoes, or earrings. So I've scrounged some of my favorite items below. Let me know what you think! Enjoy!

My Favorite PJ's

I never really wore a whole set of pajamas, you know like the matching pajama shirt with the pants, until about four years ago. Growing up, I always just wore shorts and a t-shirt. Which is totally fine, don't get me wrong. But ever since I got my first pair back in my junior year of high school, it's the only thing I ever want to wear now when I go to sleep. So now I've collected multiple pairs now over the years and I want to share with you my favorites.

Target is always coming out with new ones throughout the year. So when ever I go to Target, I always have to check their pajama section. That being said, some of my favorite pajamas are mostly from Target that I've collected over the years. Instead of showing you some that aren't available anymore, I searched and found some really cute ones that are available now.

Green Picket Fence

 This is my new absolute favorite vest. It probably will be for the rest of the year at least. I just absolutely LOVE the corduroy added to the pockets and the back. What do you guys think? I would love to see what your favorite vests are? Leave a comment below! 💚

Birthday Sledding

Sledding on my birthday sort of has become a tradition now. My birthday is three days after Christmas so its the perfect time of the year to go for a sled. (Wow, I just realized how late this post is...) My friends and I went two years ago, and we went again last year (last month lol), and we'll probably be going again this year. All of my friends work during winter break, including myself, so we hardly to get to see each other, except for on my birthday.

New England Cookies

Wow, its been a while! I feel so terrible for not staying constant on this. But I'm back and I have quite a few posts planned so stay tuned cause there will be more! 😆

I first wanted to post about some cookies I made for Aubrey from The Coastal Confidence. I just want to start off by saying, I have no idea how she found or why she wanted to feature my cookies! I see it as a blessing from the Lord and Him showing His favor over my life. Because of the feature she posted, my profile started to become a little more known and now I have a network connection! So, thank you Jesus! 

But yeah! Anyways, Aubrey from TCC reached out to me and asked to make some holiday cookies and I asked her what kind specifically did she have in mind. Like, did she want candy canes, Christmas trees, snowman, etc. She told me that snowflakes and Christmas trees would be nice and to then surprise her with other ones. I took on the challenge and that day I started to brainstorm. I looked up on Pinterest for ideas, I studied her style and I concluded with light houses, fisherman sweaters, Bean boots, and that classic holiday red truck with a tree in the back! These will probably be some of my favorite designs I've ever created. I'm so grateful for this opportunity that was brought to me. It pushed me to making these designs, that I probably would've never thought to make if Aubrey didn't ask. :)

Delayed Holiday Outfit

SOO embarrassing that I'm just now posting my holiday outfit, but I really wanted to share so I'm posting anyways. lol Speaking of the holidays, I'll take this time to write about how my holidays went! So I finished finals on Friday, December 9th. I know its ridiculous that I'm writing about something that happened last year! 😆 Soo long ago! (Yeah, I'm still telling that joke). Anyways, I didn't go home til' Monday, December 12th and I started working the very next day in the morning. Like I mentioned before on a previous blog post, I work at a cute little bakery in Leavenworth, WA. Leavenworth is known as "the little Christmas town" or "the town of lights". It's super cute during the holidays. Every shop and every tree is covered with lights. And for that reason, the holiday season is the busiest time of the year! And I mean BUSY. They have to close all the streets to have enough room for all the tourists. At the bakery I work, we get a line that goes out the door and goes as far as to the end of the street. And the line never ends until we close. It is insane. But I absolutely love it. Everyone is in such a cheerful mood from being in the holiday spirit and I get to bake cookies all day long! 

Here's the bakery I work at!  ⤵  :)
