This weekend we celebrated Nick's birthday with family (twice, actually.)
Saturday we had a few folks over for a cozy little dinner of his favorites.
I baked a cake in my grandma's old bundt pan. Every time I see, think of or use the word "bundt", I think of My Big, Fat Greek Wedding. Anyone?
Cream cheese filled, bacon wrapped jalapenos. Recipe coming tomorrow. I want some right now.
The finished product. I used a real vanilla bean for the glaze, which always makes me feel a little fancy.
Our fireplace hasn't really worked since we moved in three years ago, despite our efforts to have it fixed. I saw someone come up with this brilliant little mason jar idea on instagram and I loved it, so our fireplace got a cozy little makeover this weekend.
We bought our tree and set straight to decorating. For the first time ever we bought it at the grocery store which felt a little unnatural and kind of like cheating. But the house is all magical now, so I'm not sure it much matters.
Yep, pure magic.
