A few of us at work have been talking for a few months about doing a cookie and clothing exchange one evening after work. We were able to have it this past Tuesday and it was so much fun! We all brought appetizers, a plate of cookies and any clothes/accessories we didn't want anymore. Our sweet host made a recipe book of all the cookie recipes for each of us to have and got all of us adorable plates to take our new cookies home in. As for the clothes portion, the idea was to "shop" each others closets which worked out so well! I found some great shorts and a J Crew button down that I plan on monogramming the sleeve. We had so much fun - this is a tradition we'll definitely have to continue!
So sorry for the blurry picture but I had to share how many clothes were there!
Every year I like to make a little Christmas goodie for my co-workers. This year I made some White Trash and put it into little bags for Stephen and my co-workers. The recipe is SOOO easy - literally, a bag of pretzels, a box of rice chex cereal, a bottle of peanuts, a bag of Christmas m&ms and melted white chocolate. Mix all of the ingredients together and then stir in the melted white chocolate. Coat and lay out on wax paper to solidify. This recipe made so much - 25 mini bags and 2 full Tupperware containers.
On top of the baking recipes above, here are some other things I've been cooking these past few weeks for Christmas parties:
For our Christmas potluck brunch this year, I made cinnamon roll french toast bake which was delicious and so easy to make! It was completely gone by the time I went to grab my casserole dish at lunch.
For tonight's birthday party, I took on the task of making a gluten free dessert (the birthday girl is GF) and I decided on these fudgey peanut butter brownies. It was super difficult to find a GF dessert that didn't have too many steps and odd ingredients. These brownies look delicious and fairly easy to make so hopefully they turn out delicious!
I was so surprised to find the most perfect Christmas gift from my friend, Madison, on my desk last week. She got me a beautiful pineapple ornament which is perfect because #1 I love pineapples and #2 I opened my embroidery business this year which is called Premium Pineapple Embroidery - so appropriate!
If you missed it this week, I shared 2 fun Christmas collaborations! The first one was our Christmas cards with Tiny Prints
And the second one was a fun, Christmas phone case with CaseApp!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!! Only 1 more weekend until Christmas!
