What I'm Loving Wednesday! - Simple Holiday Pleasures

Happy Hump Day friends!

It’s What I’m Loving Wednesday! And it’s the one day each week I actually seem do a post so it’s EXTRA loveable! Maybe I’ll get a few more in before Christmas – but don’t hold your breath.

Here’s what I am loving this week…

  1. Vanilla Bean Noel hand cream (early Xmas treat from my mom). Sits pretty on my desk, so I can obsessively put it on about once every two hours…
    Cute packaging makes it even better!
  2. Chex Mix. This is a holiday staple in my family. My mom (man she’s on a roll!) makes the best original Chex mix EVER. Seriously, I wish you could try it. She puts her own twist on it and it’s extra crispy and garlicky and amazing. This year I decided to try it on my own. I saw on Pinterest that you could do it in the crock pot, so I tried it! First batch was so so, but the entire batch was eaten at our little Ugly Sweater party this weekend so it couldn’t have been that bad. Batch two? Awesome.  By batch three I’ll be about 95% of the way to my mom’s epic mix. I promise a tutorial soon!!!

  3. Lite 107.9. All Christmas music, all the time. Enough said. 
  4. My Christmas cards are all sent, and from what I have been hearing, have been recieved by family and friends. I think they are pretty cute myself...
  5. The photos that resulted from our "photo booth" at our Ugly Sweater party this weekend. Here's a few examples.

TTFN friends! Hope you are having a magical holiday season!


  1. I absolutely love Vanilla Bean Noel too! It's seriously the best! And I love your new signature! Ao cute!
