Awesome Things That Happen On Twitter

January 2, 2014

I have long professed my love for Twitter.  I feel like I can be myself more than I can on Facebook and most of the people I follow are awesome and not sharing long ranting posts full of song lyrics or every detail about their latest illness.  Plus, I enjoy trying to be witty in […]

Recapping 2013

December 30, 2013

As I sit here trying to think of something interesting to say about 2013, I realize that 2013 was a pretty uneventful year for me.  There were ups and downs of course, but no one close to me died, I didn’t get married or have a baby, nor did I change jobs.  So…yeah.  2013 was […]

December 20, 2013

I think I should change the name of this series to “12 Days of Christmas Treats”.  Clearly I’m running out of cookie ideas.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  Originally I was going to make red velvet cookies, but then I made this awesome fudge that I thought you all would enjoy.  BUT THEN I made […]

12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Hot Chocolate Stir Sticks

December 18, 2013

Okay okay.  I know these aren’t anything close to resembling at cookie.  They are, however, very cute.  And as I decided last week, I’m all about the cute this year.  You’re probably drinking cocoa while baking and eating cookies, so you obviously need something to make your hot cocoa all Christmas-y.  Enter these hot chocolate […]

TBR Challenge: Holiday Reads – Season For Temptation by Theresa Romain

December 17, 2013

I was pretty excited when I realized that I had an actual holiday story on my TBR shelf.  Y’all know I like to stick to the themes, so obviously I was thrilled that I didn’t have to go track something down that may or may not have been on my TBR list.  However, I was […]

December 16, 2013

Yes, yes…potato chip cookies.  Sounds weird, right?  It’s not.  I promise.  Potato chip cookies are perfect for anyone who likes a little salty with their sweet.  I like to make these a little on the smaller size so you can pop them in your mouth just like a chip!  I have no idea where this […]
