Happy December!! Can you even believe it’s almost time for the holidays ONCE AGAIN?! Whether that means for you cheesy movies, cookies, and celebrating with friends and family or just a quiet relaxing last month of the year before new adventures next year!
It’s also been ONE year since I started this blog. That’s hard to believe. I have had so much fun sharing my adventures this past year, even though I haven’t posted nearly as much as I wanted to. I really enjoyed doing the 30 day blog challenge I did last December and wanted to do a similar challenge to keep me motivated.

I already need to do a little bit of baking for work and gifts this month, plus I really want to increase my skills and most of all have a ridiculous amount of fun.

I didn’t want to leave it too open or make it all cookies, so I’ve added a bunch of festive ingredients like peppermint, chocolate, and even a little bit of fruit (you mean healthy things in MY Christmas treats?!?), along with different varieties of baked goods. This is what I’ll be trying to tackle up until Christmas Day:
