Did you have a great Thanksgiving? I sure hope so. Our weekend was family filled, action packed and a turkey-coma-eat-your-leftover-guts-out overload. If I’m being honest, I had a hard time coming back to reality, the blog and a schedule. I loved sleeping in, mid morning skiing and ignoring all responsibilities. What can I say? I do lazy days pretty darn well and I channel my inner ski bum whenever the snow starts to fly. But because being a slug doesn’t last for more than a few days around here, I’m back at it. I’m cooking up a storm and gearing up for the next round of holidays. ‘Tis the season for planning the next meal, am I right?
Next Tuesday is an annual cookie/holiday treat exchange that a bunch of my friends have done for almost 10 years. Not to toot my own horn but it’s kind of the best holiday party around. Year after year, we raise the cookie bar and I have to say, it’s a night I look forward to all year! I’m thinking of making:

Clearly I have no lack of inspiration. Maybe I’ll show up with multiple cookies!

This is what we’re filling our advent calendar with: kindness.
Do you do Elf on the Shelf? I have such a love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with our creepy little elves. I’m digging this list of EASY ideas. #thankyou
Fleece lined leggings? These were made for me.
Have a great rest of the week everyone. Check back tomorrow for a recipe that involves brown butter, bananas and espresso. #winning
