Friday Four 14: Christmas Desserts

But first, let’s talk THIS WEEK.

ON THE BLOG:  On Monday I shared a food photography tutorial and photo makeover. Tuesday was all about these low carb Zucchini Noodles with Roasted Tomatoes. And yesterday I shared this simple and delicious Cranberry Orange Apple Sauce.

IN MY LIFE: Did you miss the Friday Four last week? I took a much needed break from the blogging world to relax during Thanksgiving weekend. I also did a little decorating. My tree is up. The outdoor lights are up. The Christmas knick knacks are up around the house. Ok, maybe I did a lot of decorating. The only thing I didn’t do was a lot of blogging. So the Friday Four post was MIA last week. It was great to take a break from blogging but I am happy to be back to it this week.

Plans for the weekend? Sometime today I’ll be receiving a Stitch Fix delivery. It’s been a while since I received one. I took a little break because I wasn’t totally happy with the pieces I had been receiving. But I updated my style profile so I’m hoping the pieces sent will suit my taste better. Don’t get me wrong, I did get a few pieces that I actually adore. I’m hoping tomorrow’s “fix” will deserve all of my adoration. I’m craving some new clothes. You can check out my first and only Stitch Fix post here – Stitch Fix June 2014 Review.

Pieces from my June Stitch Fix

I bought myself an early Christmas present. Hello iPhone 6 Plus. I went back and forth about whether I wanted the 6 or 6 Plus but in the end, the 6 Plus won. I LOVE the size of the phone. Hello gigantic phone. Goodbye tablet. Sometimes upsizing results in downsizing. In my case, downsizing of electronic devices.

Tomorrow evening we are going to a Florida Panthers hockey game. It’s been ages since we went to one. And by ages, I mean about four years. It’s gonna be a blast. I LOVE live hockey games!

Now let’s get to those Christmas Desserts!

  1. Hope you got some nice pieces from this Stitch Fix delivery and yay for a new iphone!:) Love all these Christmas desserts, I have been on full holiday baking mode so I love finding new treats to make!

    • Thanks Kelly! There were two I could keep. All of the other pieces were too small but I did like the style of everything in the latest fix. I only wish they all would have fit!
