I can’t believe that today is 2016, talk about a fast year! Christmas was wonderful and went by entirely too fast, don’t you think. Since last week was Christmas Day, it has been awhile since I have done a Friday Favorite’s, so this is the Christmas and New Year’s Edition 🙂
Winter in Texas is just crazy! Christmas day it was really warm, around 80. The next day was even more warm and we had numerous tornado warnings and one that hit Dallas pretty hard. The next day it rained so much, everything was flooded. Monday we woke up to 30 degree weather and snow?! It never ceases to amaze me lol!
My husband and I thought it would be fun to get my brother a gag gift along with his other gift. This turned out to be the funniest thing. We all took turns trying out the different flavors. I got a stinky sock and rotten egg one which were disgusting! My brother got a skunk flavor and just about threw up. I highly recommend getting these for a party or game night, they are hilarious! You can Find them here.
Christmas was full of so much baking and gift giving! That is my absolute favorite part. I perfected my gluten-free cookies for so many people who needed them and I will be sharing my research and tips this month! I have so many great projects coming up this year, I cannot wait to share. This months newsletter will have a leftover Champagne Cupcake recipe, so sign up below if you haven’t already. It is one of my favorite recipes for January!
New Year’s Eve is pretty low key around here and we just made some of this great food I mentioned in this post and hung out! My husband has long hours so a low key night was just what we needed. I also had a post yesterday and the super crazy weird things that happened in 2015. It is amazing what all can happen in one year! I also shared the most popular posts of 2015 the other day, so if you are a new reader, you can check those. There are some great recipes and ideas included! Farewell 2015!
How was your New Year’s? Anything fun things planned for 2016?
