My Favorite Remedies for Dry, Cracked Hands

Winter is here with a bang this year!  Man, has it been cold or what?  We got a tiny break in the freeze yesterday, only to be followed by ice and school cancellations today.  We have been a little stir crazy in this house because with the exception of one day this week, it's been too cold to go outside and play, even for a little bit.

Cold weather does a number on my skin, and especially my hands.  The dry air and cold temperatures definitely don't help, but I think the addition of extra hand washing (trying to avoid those yucky winter germs) puts my poor hands over the edge.  My skin cracks, my cuticles bleed, and my hands feel like I have a job doing really hard manual labor.  #paulbunyon

What I'm Ordering From Amazon This Month (January)

Last month I started a new series where I am sharing what I order from Amazon's Subscribe and Save program each month.  I have loved this subscription service for years and years, but I am always finding different things to add to my order.  I thought I would be helpful to share what I have delivered to my door in hopes that it may save you a trip to the store in this cold COLD winter!  

For those of you who are not familiar with Subscribe and Save, I'll give you a run down below.  If you already know the ins and outs, please feel free to scroll on down!

And A Happy New Year

I hope you all had a GREAT holiday season and a fun New Year's Eve!  We stayed in and celebrated with just the four of us this year.  It ended up being really fun thanks to some great ideas I found on Pinterest!  Gosh, WHAT did we do before Pinterest?  We made it to midnight (even Beckham stayed up!), but I was draaaaaaggggging.  It's pretty sad when your 8 year old can hang longer than you can.  #gettingold

The BEST Cinnamon Rolls / A Christmas Tradition

Don't you just love it when bloggers claim that something is the BEST or the GREATEST or that you CAN'T live without it!?!?!  Well, I'm not lying when I say these are literally the BEST cinnamon rolls ever!  Remember Cinnabon?  They have those larger than life cinnamon rolls filled with lots of gooey cinnamon, and topped with cream cheese icing.  Well, this is probably as close as you are going to get to those babies.  I honestly don't even remember where I originally got this recipe, but I have been making them for years and my poor recipe card is spilled on, stained, and very used, aka loved. 

So, the key to these delicious rolls is a secret ingredient.  But, have no fear, you are my friends, so I am willing to share it with you!  And then I must kill you.  JOKING, just joking.  I think.

Christmas Home Tour 2017

Hi Friends!  It's almost Christmas, I can't believe it's less than a week away!  Are you ready?  I can safely say that I think I am prepared.  I need to make a grocery store run and figure out some food details, but as far as gifts go, I am all set!  

It has been a pretty crazy month for me, as I am sure it has been for all of you too.   I would love to have you all over for a cocktail and a real life tour of our little farmhouse, but considering Christmas is only days away, that's not likely to happen.  Instead, you'll have to fix your own drink while I take you on a quick little virtual tour of our Christmas decor because before we know it, we will all be taking down the trees and stuffing stockings in boxes.  This month has flown by!  Faster than usual, I'd say for sure!

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Sooooo, I have had really good intentions of doing some gift guides for the holidays this year....but, obviously I haven't done them.  To be honest, I just haven't made them a priority.  It takes a lot of time to research items, get links, write the post, make the graphic, etc.  And while I enjoy working on them and putting them together, I just haven't had the necessary time to dedicate to them this year.  So, sorry about that!  #bloggerfail   I'll link last year's gift guides, and while some of the links may be outdated, they may still give you some ideas.  I have one boy who is very much into anything STEM related and another boy who is obsessed with tractors and farm stuff.  If you have little girlies, I can't help out much in that department!  But there is a gift guide for both women and men in the same post.

Stocking Stuffer ideas

Even though I don't have brand new, updated gift guides for every person on your list, I wanted to share some stocking stuffer ideas because I don't now about you, but I try really hard to not fill the boys' stockings with junk.  I try to find things that they will actually use and enjoy.
