I'm Baaaack!

Remember that time that I said that I was going to update more frequently during my winter break? Uhhhh — oops? Though not what I've planned, I have been taking a nice little break from the internet and it's been surprisingly refreshing. I'm not one to 'unplug' from the internet considering that much of my life seems to be based on it; however, I've spent much of the last two weeks enjoying the holidays and spending time with my family and enjoying the company of all of my bestest friends! 

Today I wanted to recap my last two weeks and show you guys some of the fun things I've been up to! Fun things such as.....

... like this delicious peppermint bark! 

and getting a brand new stand mixer! 


I was in no way expecting this! So relieved to have a nicer, bigger, and prettier stand mixer! I can't wait to open it and bake bake bake! 

Hope all of you guys have had a wonderful Christmas and have an amazing New Years! I have so many fun ideas and new recipes planned for 2014, so get ready!
