Ho ho ho… things are getting pretty festive around here. And hey, did you see? It’s snowing on ALFS! So cute.
Anyway, from now until the end of the month it’s going to be Christmas GO mode around here. I hope you’ve been enjoying my holiday gift guides! They have been so fun to put together! Obviously, I love to shop.
As far as cookies go, I have some awesome ones from last year. Like these salted caramel thumbprint or these chocolate mint cookies. And let’s not forget the browned butter meltaways. They literally melt in your mouth. Christmas bark is oh so fun with the kids and omg the video! See, this is why I blog. For memories such as those.
A fun update to the bus stop cookies? Swap out the rainbow colored sprinkles for holiday colors. See? Festive.
I’ll also be posting lots of tips to holiday entertaining on Facebook and Instagram, so be sure you’re following along. I host Christmas Eve Eve every year and I could not be more excited to get to working on the menu. I mean, how gorgeous does this salad look? I also make mushrooms which, I’ve been told, are dream inducing. Stay tuned.
This wine is perfection when paired with prime rib, or any red meat for that matter. As far as setting the table goes, I find these napkins oh so charming along with handmade name cards by L. I’ve saved them for a few years now!
For our big holiday party I’m pretty sure I’ve decided on this dress although, yikes, it’s a bit outside my comfort zone. What do you think?
B will be rocking these Grinch pj’s (score! on sale!) Christmas Eve Eve and on and I’ve got my eye on these. Love that they come in tall.
I can’t wait to share some of my favorite holiday recipes and traditions with you this month and would so love to hear about yours!

Thank you and Tia for coming over and bringing me all that loot, wine AND soup – I will definitely have it for lunch today and next week. That was more thoughtful than you’ll ever know.

I love that even your socks have stripes on them! Jess will be rocking those jammies too in Rudolph print if her elf gets its act togeher! Can’t wait to see what the rest of the month has to bring for ALFS 🙂
Woohoo for reindeer jammies! And I’m laughing about the sock. I 100% have a problem.
