Happy New Years!

2010 was quite the year, lived in Germany, traveled all over Europe, had a awesome bartending job, met some amazing people, gained great friendships, and ended with a healthy and loving family. Thank you 2010! Three Cheers for 2011!

Happy New Years Everyone!


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! My christmas was wonderful, I am so thankful for my family and all the love that they provide, I am rich with endless love and abundance.
Today, we decided to be a little spontaneous this year and take a quick trip to Multnomah Falls - all the years that I have lived in Oregon I had never been so we thought it was a perfect time to go and it was beautiful. Now, we are ending our christmas with a gorgeous prime rib and baked vegetables tossed in fresh herbs, there truly is no better memories than the ones created with your family.
I am also very thankful for my new Arctic coat from columbia! I will never be cold again! lol

Happy Holidays!

Shoe Porn

I tried these gorgeous red wedges on the other day and I fell in love. Definitely the perfect shoes to wear for new years eve.


Happy Holidays!

Every year, my grandparents throw a annual christmas party for all of the grandchildren. Every year, they hire a santa to come to the house to hand out gifts and sit on his lap, and even though I am the eldest grandchild I am still obligated to follow the routine and tell him what I want for christmas. So when my turn came around to tell him what I would like, I really wanted to tell him that I would love for my college tuition to be paid for but I figured that would be asking a little much out of the nice gentleman...so instead I asked for a kitchen aid mixer, preferably red! It was fantastic and the kids got a kick out of it.
The night before our christmas gathering I made some goodies that I thought were fitting for the event: Toffee Bars and Peppermint Bark!

here is the recipe Thank you Paula Deen!

I used the recipe out of my betty crocker cookbook to make these scrumptious bars.

This is my family

Lately, I have been craving bruschetta but haven't had the time to put it together, so this evening I made it a point to make it and it was quite scrumptious. I seriously cannot stop watching the Food Network, I think I might be a little obsessed. Next weekend, after this week of endless finals, my best friend and I are devoting one entire day to baking. We found some amazing recipes that involve, white and dark chocolate, toffee, hazelnuts, truffles, caramel, and graham bars. Of course it's not all for us, we would suffer from a massive sugar load if that were the case. Instead, we thought it would be a good idea to make treats for our family members for christmas. I am going to pick up small bags and festive ribbon to put the yummy gifts in, nothing says I love you or Merry Christmas like homemade goods.

Here is the recipe I used for my bruschetta - super easy!
