Christmas

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Mine was nice and relaxing. I baked a ton of goodies for a few friends and mostly relaxed. Here are the cookies I made.

Everyone loved the cookies and caramels! I took a few of each to work because I had a lot left over, even after I sampled each. One note on the pudding cookies – that recipe will make about 5-6 batches. I highly recommend either freezing half or cutting the recipe in half.

Along with all the baked goods the presents I got for each friend I decided to wrap with some good old Pinterest inspiration.

Most of my packages looked like this..

On Friday the BF and I had our Christmas. The original plan was to meet up and exchange gifts and have dinner. He surprised me with a text earlier that day asking if I wanted to get a hotel room for the night. UM YES! YES I DO!! I met him at the hotel around 8 and he had champagne, my favorite flowers, and caramel truffles waiting for me. SO SWEET!!!! I was blown away. I’m one of those girls that loves romance and sweet gestures, so he definitely earned a ton of points with this one.

We exchanged gifts, ordered room service, had great conversation and even took advantage of the huge tub and shower. It was such a nice stay-cation. I am such a lucky girl!! So blessed.

Fall Activities

I forgot to mention this in my last Fall post, but there are a ton of activities that I am really looking forward to doing this year with my friends! Somehow I’ve always managed to date losers and they never wanted to do fun stuff with me.. so I’m taking it upon myself to do them! You can only make yourself happy, am I right?

SO! I have a fall bucket list of things I want to do.

  1. go apple picking
  2. drink apple cider {how delicious does cherry apple cider sound!?}
  3. go to a corn maze
  4. pick a pumpkin from a pumpkin patch
  5. carve pumpkins with friends
  6. toast pumpkin seeds
  7. make my annual trip to Netherworld Haunted House
  8. go on a haunted tour of the Oakland Cemetery
  9. participate in the chomp n stomp

I’m sure there are many more but thats what I can think of! SO! EXCITED!

ATL Restaurants: Bucket List

Hey lovers! I created a new page. Check it out here. I love to eat and there are a ton of restaurants in Atlanta. So many that I decided I needed to make a list. I have another list that’s at home so I need to combine the two. If I left any off that you love, let me know! There are a ton of places that I haven’t been to, so if I haven’t been please tell me what your favorite thing to eat is!

Have a great weekend!!
