Warm Feelings

Someone has definitely hit the fast forward button for me lately!  But had a nice Thanksgiving with the family and I have been able to spend ample time with friends, which has all been great.  I have so much to be thankful for.  I remind myself of this year round, and not just on Thanksgiving. 
The temperature dropped today, making it actually feel all "holiday-ish".  Breaking the Christmas decorations out and ready to get in the true holiday spirit!! :)

Ready for another (Short Week) plus a Great Giveaway!

Busy bee I have been!!!!  The weeks get shorter and the amount of work and things going on increases!  I wish I could repost from last Monday as I feel the same way this week! 
But I am confident that this (short week) will be well worth it come Thursday!
And to start if off, what better way than spreading the word about a GREAT Giveaway from Dawn over at The Alternative Wife!! I read her blog daily and look forward to the pretty posts she has to offer. 
She is currently doing a giveaway for Dr. Perricone-$150!!!  Talk about Merry Christmas!  Go check it out now!! :)

Party Dress

After a much needed visit to Phipps Plaza over the weekend and seeing all the pretty Christmas decorations (and yes even Santa, already) it really got me in the holiday spirit.  I crave to have a holiday party or dinner or something to go to in order to have an excuse to wear a pretty party dress!

Chunky Sweaters

It was quite refreshing to break out my black wool pants for work.  I was convinced they would never be worn again only to be left in my closet and be lonely with all my other cozy clothing I just.can'! 
Inspired by Chunky Sweaters this week! :)

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

Another pumpkin recipe success! I had a Halloween treat food day at work last week and since I am on a pumpkin kick, I found this delicious recipe!

I was a bit worried after making the Old Fashioned Pumpkin Cookies the day before that it would be too similar, but everyone loved both!!
I actually cheated and used a tub of cream cheese icing though (the whipped, fluffy kind). It was really late at night when I made these and I was tired haha!
Otherwise, the cake flour and buttermilk created a wonderful light and fluffy cupcake.  I somehow missed a pic of the cupcakes iced!  I have somehow lost my organizational skills and (as you can tell from lack of posting), have had a bit going on!  Hope to be back to posting regularly next week!
