Oatmeal Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love making stuff like this because they are great to take to work for breakfast in the morning.

Thanksgiving Turkey Burgers

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days, I love all the food that's served and spending time with family. So I was in the mood for some of those favorite tastes, but of course didn't have time to make a turkey and all the sides after working all day. So this recipe came to the rescue and was amazing. Here's the link to this quick and easy recipe

Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies

You can't have an Ugly Sweater Party without ugly sweater cookies. I got the cookie cutter on etsy and decorated them with mini candy canes, mini m&m's and cookie icing. Kyle said they weren't ugly enough, but I thought they were pretty ugly and they taste wonderful. Here's the link to make these cookies this holiday season.

Ugly Sweater Party

Wanted to share some of the things I've made for our upcoming Ugly Sweater Party
 Banner I made, I cut the letters out on my silhouette and used up some paper I've had for awhile

 Got the sticks at Michaels and cut them out with my silhouette

I recycled a box and wrapped it with paper I had. The reindeer I got at Michaels and painted it gold. Glittered up the antlers and used letter stickers I had.
