Cinnamon Bread Gift


Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday but with that being said, I think it is probably the most stressful too. What usually starts as a Christmas list of 10 to buy for somehow doubles and even triples some years.

I am always looking for small gifts to give those in the office, neighbors, and others who I want to give a little something without breaking the bank. I saw Christina’s post on this Cinnamon Bread a while back and have been waiting for an opportunity to make it myself.

I have to admit, I went the easy route due to also baking 90 muffins for our work Christmas breakfast on the same night. I can’t wait to try the homemade recipe that she links to.

With the boxed cake mix, I got 4 small cakes. I covered in saran wrap, tied each one with a bow and called it a day. Easy peasy and let’s be real.. Who doesn’t like a homemade treat?!

2015 Valentine’s Day Ideas

It’s the month of love. Chris and I normally do not celebrate big on this holiday. We are were sort of the opinion that there shouldn’t be a day that makes you do something special for the one you love. Instead, you should do special things all year long!

Apparently my husband has had a change of heart this year… As we were walking in Kroger Saturday noticing all of the Valentine candy sitting out Chris said “I never get anything good for Valentine’s Day.” Excuse me?! I, of course, challenged him with a “what do you ever get me for Valentine’s Day?” He couldn’t give me an answer so we laughed and said that we would try to do better this year.

Well, husband if you are reading, I have tried to make things easy on you *wink*. On a serious note, I think the items below are all something that any lady would be excited to receive this year.
