Life Lately Vol. 5

This month has been so full in so many ways! I’m a little bummed that December is flying by as fast as it is, but January means baby so it’s a fine line between wishing time would slow down and speed up at the same time.


My sister, nieces, and I had another holiday baking day not too long ago and we made SO many delicious treats!


Chocolate crinkles, peppermint patties, sugar cookie cut-outs, PB blossoms, etc. It has been so fun to have these traditions with them! Here’s a peek into our baking day from last year!


I packaged up a bunch of our goodies and handed them out to my work buddies and all of our neighbors! I know I say this a million times, but I just love living in our neighborhood!


Speaking of neighbors, my friend Kelsey hosted a bunch of the neighbor girls for a favorite things party and it was so much fun! We each brought our “favorite things” and then exchanged gifts — going home with a handful of their favorite things! This was my first time attending one of these parties and it is definitely one that I’d love to host sometime! I’m thinking that it might be fun to host one around Valentine’s Day!


Not too long ago, I picked up this frozen pizza on a whim while grabbing a few groceries after work and it instantly became a new favorite! I’d highly recommend it if you enjoy veggie pizza.


My friend Colleen and I had a coffee date at work the other day — I’m trying to meet up with friends before we hunker down into newborn life over here and it was so fun to catch up with her! We work for the same company but in different departments so it’s super convenient to meet at the Starbucks at work! She has two little boys so I was drilling her with baby and birth-related questions! Also, ignore my swollen fingers and chapped hands, but this is one of my favorite nail colors for winter — it has a slight shimmer to it which makes it super fun for the holiday season!

What have you been up to lately?
