Day Designer

This is my first time ordering a Day Designer Planner and I have to say I'm really excited to start using it!  I purchased the Flaship Edition in Black Stripe.  I guess I have no excuse not to be organized.  :)

Plaid Deer Christmas Printable

With all this snow we've been getting I am definitely in the Christmas mood and that includes decorating.  Since this is our first Christmas in Alaska I'll be adding plaid and burlap to my holiday decorating.  I needed a print for my mantle (really excited I finally have a mantel to decorate) so I whipped up this fun little plaid deer image.  It's free for you to download!

Click on this LINK for the download.

You will need to trim the image down since it's a 5x7, put in a frame and you're set!  Cheers! xoxo

Pumpkin Spice Snowball Cookies

Today is a snow day for us in the Anchorage area!  Seems weird I know but I'm not complaining.  The less I have to drive in that mess the better.

This is the perfect cookie for today...Pumpkin Spice Snowball Cookies.  They are a fun fall twist to Russian Tea Cakes (which I love).  I found this new recipe via Crazy for Crust.

You can download the full recipe HERE.

While my hubby didn't care for them, my son and I loved them!

Halloween Recap + Snow + Red Cups

We made it through our first Halloween in Alaska.  I never thought we would be trick or treating in 30 degree weather with snow on the ground.  Oy was so cold!

We got more snow last night which made traffic a nightmare for commuters this morning.  Buses didn't make it to their stops, kids were late everywhere.  It took a long time to see any sanding trucks or snow plows, I assume from budget cuts.  This snow wasn't even that bad, I'm not looking forward to it when it gets really bad.

I previously mentioned my growing fall/winter clothing collection, I spent quite a few weeks trying to find the perfect winter boot.  I finally found them!  Shop Bop was having a sale and I managed to snag a pair of Sorel's for $75 (free shipping! to alaska?! yes please!)  I love them!  They are waterproof and lined so they keep your feet toasty warm.  I didn't want a tall boot so these are working well for me.  You can find them at Shop Bop or Zappos for around $100.

I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet buuuut the Starbuck's red cups are you know what that means?

Christmas prep is on!  It is snowy here, you can't really blame me!  :)
