I am almost done with my shopping and can't wait to start giving gifts. I must admit that I had a hard time thinking of gifts for some people but I got some help from some great gift guides that I found here and here.
What else do I love about the holidays? Baking! I always joke that Thanksgiving starts the winter insulation process and it goes straight through to the new year. It's so true -- it is practically not stop eating with all the parties and gifting. Instead of fighting the inevitable, I will indulge a little. My first stop...snowmen cake pops. These guys were a little troublesome this time around. They kept falling off the stick when I tried to dip them. Probably too much frosting in the mix but I managed to get a dozen presentable snowmen. Complete with sparkly hats and a orange heart nose, these little guys are tied with the chickies for my favorite.
I love the lights on the tree in the background. It's almost as though they are melting the snowman a little down the stick, ha. I don't go all out decorating since it's a rather small apartment but I will post some pictures soon of the decorations. They just make the apartment so cozy and festive!
