Peachy Keen #fruit #juice #recipe

I was so excited this Spring when I saw peaches in the produce section, and I knew that they would make for a great, sweet and light juice; perfect for a weekend brunch!

1 large peach
2 apples
1 pear

Core your apples and pear, and pit your peach. The prep for this recipe is super easy, and all you need to do is run everything through your juicer. Easy peasy and super yummy!


Yield: approx 16oz.

Cookes for Santa #free #Christmas #printable

I have such fond memories of putting out chocolate chip cookies and a can of Coca-Cola for Santa on Christmas Eve. We used to leave carrot sticks for the reindeer, as well, but I never caught on that Santa and my Dad had the same love for Coca-Cola and didn't drink milk. Weird!

I used to love leaving Santa a little note, or to draw a picture. I so hope that our boys love this tradition, and if not...they have a creative mama who will continue to design fun printables for Santa.

The Easiest Trifle You Will Ever Make...Ever #recipe #holiday #dessert

This Spring, we were invited to the first BBQ potluck of the season and I was assigned dessert. More specifically, "cookies, dessert or ju jubes"

So I did what any good guest would do and tried to make a dessert that was super yummy and would be a home run.


1 pkg of Oreo cookies
1 pkg of Two Bite Brownies
11 Reese Peanut Butter Cups
2 large tubs of Cool Whip
1 small tub of Cool Whip

Layer 1: Cool Whip
Layer 2: chopped Reese Peanut Butter Cups
Layer 3: Cool Whip
Layer 4: crushed Oreo cookies
Layer 5: Cool Whip
Layer 6: chopped Two Bite Brownies, chopped Reese Peanut Butter cups, crushed Oreo cookies
Layer 7: Cool Whip
Layer 8: chopped Reese Peanut Butter Cups

Garnish with a whole Oreo and halved Two Bite Brownie

Seriously...that's it. Pretty much the easiest trifle recipe ever, and it was incredibly delicious.

Set in the fridge to firm up for 1 hour prior to serving. 


Add some chocolate pudding to your cool whip and alternate layers of regular cool whip with chocolate pudding whip
Add pound cake instead of brownies
Drizzle melted chocolate over the top before setting in the fridge.


(and PS: there's no shame in licking the bowl or your plate when you are finished your portion)

Christmas Gift Checklist #printable

Yet another list that I keep on my phone is one for ongoing gift ideas for my husband and the boys. When it comes time to go out in search of Christmas gifts, I usually have a whole other list that includes my best friends kiddos, grandparents, the boys' aunt and uncle...the whole gang.

Since I am hoping to divide and conquer the gift list this year, I thought a printable would be helpful so my husband and I can trade it back and forth and strike things off the list!

As always, one space left open for anyone that you might need to add...the mail carrier, hair stylist, baby sitter...add them as needed in the open space!

Glam Holiday Looks on Polyvore #fashion

With holiday parties in full swing, I thought it was time to show off my favorite glam holiday cocktail look for the season.

Holiday Glam

Baby, it's cold outside, but there's no reason that you can't be both covered, warm and sexy. The lace sleeves on this dress and plunging neckline are perfect for a glamorous holiday cocktail party, and when paired with rose gold metallic stappy heels, are super feminine and exude confidence.

Instead of going with holiday colors for accents, I've gone with amethyst and ruby accessories, capped off with rose gold elements. Again, soft and feminine, which is what you want if you're seeking out a kiss under the mistletoe from someone special.

Do you use holiday parties as an excuse to get a little more dressed up than usual? Strut your stuff, and feel special by incorporating metallics and lace!
