Is it just me or did Thanksgiving come and go at an unacceptable speed? I can’t believe tomorrow’s Monday and I really can’t believe how much work I put off until today. Does Senioritis happen in college? If so, I’m pretty sure I caught it. Maybe I should restock my hand sanitizer. Bath & Body Works is having a sweet sale, and they do sell my favorite hand sani’s 😉
Anywho – hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving or just a great week/weekend in general, whether you ate turkey and taters or not! Over this (too-short) break, I’ve managed to cook up quite the mess in the kitchen. If ya’ll want recipes for any of this stuff I’ll gladly do a seperate recipe post. For Thanksgiving I made my cousins favorite dessert – Peanut Butter Creme Pie:
I feel like she should wear a diaper whenever she hears the words “peanut” and “pie” used in the same sentence, but it is that good, promise. Super simple too. Oh, and yes, I did write her name on it in chocolate ganache. I also made a gluten free pumpkin pie that seemed to have escaped from my camera? Guess it was hungry.
Peanut butter creme pie – deconstructed. Apple pie was the main culprit in the pie-smell suffocation process that went down in my house on Wednesday – and I’m not complaining about it…
I just loved having everyone over for Thanksgiving, as any holiday! My family means the world to me.
I didn’t go Black Friday shopping – which is incredibly unlike me – because I was honestly so stuffed to the brim that I really just wanted to sleep for a long, loooong time. So my Aunt and I made a holiday out of Saturday and called it Black Saturday, because we’re original like that. Gathered up some Christmas goodies, and oo-ed and aaahh-ed over this little MINI PIE MAKER!!! I am obsessed and I want one:
Williams-Sonoma is like a foodie gadget dream store. I am in love…and they always have an array of samples 😉 I remember when I was little, samples were the highlight of my grocery trips – and the sweet electronic coupon dispensers that I’d oh-so-sneakily pull all of the coupons out of.
During our trip I had to make a stop by the department store make-up counters and test out all of the holiday goodies and shades. Although I buy probably more than half of my make up at the drugstore, it’s nice to splurge on some holiday glitter – agreed? Oh, and speaking of beauty shenanigans, I recorded a little “Winterizing Your Skin” vid, if you’re interested.
Tis the season for flakes…and not just snowflakes. Gross.
Lastnight I indulged in a little celebratory festivities for one of my friends 21st birthday’s (by the way, since when does Party City RUN OUT of Happy Birthday balloons?!) I ended up grabbing some half-ass excuse for birthday balloons that said “2” and “1”…lame. Anyways…
Her cake definitely made up for the balloon issue 😉
Cook anything special this week/weekend?
What do you do to “winterize” your skin?
I’m off to cook some chicken curry stew (recipe coming soon!) for my brother and sister-in-law to bring over for dinner tonight 🙂
Peace and love!
