Full Speed Ahead and Giveaway Winner

Just your typical Friday at le office-busy as hell mixed with excitement to get the h-e-double-toothpicks outta there.  You know. 

I am currently elbow deep in cookie dough and homemade icing right now.  Every year I make about ten kinds of cookies, bars and other little goodies for Christmas.  I will be spending majority of my weekend liking batter and assembling cookie platters.

To kick off the holiday baking sesh, my family always holds a cookie decorating party.  We all bring some pre-baked, pre-frosted sugar cookies and some frosting and let the kids have at them.  They usually have an inch of frosting and sprinkles on top of the cookie by the end of it, with frosting in the girls' hair and sticky fingers, but it always ends well (i.e. a sugar rush crash early in the evening ;-) ).

On the baking agenda: butterscotch haystacks, candy covered pretzels, caramel swirls, two tone brownies, mint chocolate brownies, white chocolate raspberry bars, lemon bars, rice krispie treats, maple walnut cookies and of course, sugar cookies. 

Oh yes, folks, it's gonna be a busy, calorie infested weekend up in here!  Don't worry, I'll take pictures of my finished products for you.  I may not be much of a cook, but baking?  That I can do.  ;-)

Do you have any baking traditions in your house?  What kind of goodies are you all preppin'?

In other exciting news, it is time to announce the winner of the giveaway for these boots that I am wearing today from Monroe and Main.  The winner is . . . Oomph!  So psyched about this because Oomph is one of the coolest mom bloggers out there.  The girl has style, great photos and she's a mom which automatically makes her a bad ass. 

Striped Mini Dress-vintage; Cargo Vest-Old Navy; Sweater Tights-Apt. 9 for Kohl's; Suede OTK Boots-Monroe and Main; Earrings-Wal-Mart; Ring-Encore; Elephant Chain Belt-vintage 

Congrats to you Oomph!  I will be emailing you shortly!  Christmas comes early for you m'dear!

15 days left . . .

  1. Ooh, every Christmas I eat about 10 types of cookies and cakes, but I'm not much of a baker and don't make any of my own. You gotta send some goodies to your readers' way! ;o)


You call it your two cents, I call it priceless. Thank you so much for visiting! I read and cherish every single comment.
