Christmas Tree 2016

I know I don’t typically share stuff like this, but over the past couple years I’ve been addicted to decorating my Christmas tree! I’ve slowly been adding to my Christmas stash each year, and my husband will find Hobby Lobby and Michaels bags hidden through out the house starting in October. He loves it.

That being said, I thought I would share our Christmas tree(s) each year, just as a little fun thing. And yes, I said trees plural. Currently we have two, the one pictured and another white tree with pink, blue, and silver. It’s the girls’ tree, and I let them decorate it because they aren’t allowed to touch mine haha!!

So here it is, my Christmas Tree for 2016 :)!

My Christmas tree was THIS one from Walmart, and I love it!

As for my ornaments, I’ve collected over the years from different local stores and craft stores. And if my husband asks, that ornaments not new, I’ve totally had it forever ;).

Merry Christmas!

Pumpkin Cream Sauce + Pumpkin Pizza

Pumpkin Cream Sauce + Pumpkin Pizza via The Diva Dish

I don’t remember ever eating anything pumpkin flavored as a child. I remember pop tarts and lucky charms… But I don’t think I ever even dared to try pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, nor did I ever smell pumpkin bread baking in the oven. And I definitely don’t remember pumpkin bagels with pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin […]

I know that healthy and milkshake don’t normally go in the same sentence… But for the sake that legging season is upon us, I have to be a lot more careful what goes into my belly. Leggings don’t necessarily hide EVERYTHING. (In a perfect world right?) That’s what oversized sweaters and jackets are for though!! […]

Almond Flour Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almond Flour Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies via The Diva Dish

I can’t tell you how much these cookies saved my sanity. I’m talking a serious Hallelujah moment. I was this close to throwing it all away and digging right into my jar of ‘regular chocolate chip cookies’ after the first day my oldest went back to school. I never realized how much my oldest played a […]
