I'm loving these simple Christmas ideas via Seventy Nine Ideas, actually I love everything about this beautiful blog. Things feel so weird this Christmas, selling my house this time of year was not my smartest decision but it just all seemed to work out that way. I didn't want to go crazy decorating for Christmas since I am also in the middle of packing up the house. Any of these simple, beautiful ideas above would be so perfect for me this year.

Holy Mother of God is this Peppermint Bark gelato good. I am a huge fan of the Mediterrean Mint and the Sea Salt Caramel and when I saw this special holiday flavor I had to have it. It is so creamy and delicious, I can't even tell you. I bought two and gave one to my sister, let's just say this is so good I tried to take back the one I gave to my sister. I wonder if you can order it by the case?
I made chocolate chip cookies.
Started wrapping presents. I made the tags out of an old little calendar I had.
Also, the tree is up and ready for Santa. I really wanted white lights but the kids wanted colored. I should have put my foot down on the colored lights.

I wouldn't mind spending my day shopping online from this space. I love the light floors and white walls.
My holiday weekend was so nice, spending time with family and friends is just what I needed. I forgot to take pictures of our Thanksgiving feast, I was too busy cooking and drinking wine. I did however, manage to get a picture of breakfast, my Publix Pilgrims and homemade applesauce in the slow cooker.
6 Cortland apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup of sugar
sprinkle enough cinnamon on top to cover the apples
Bonus, it makes your house smell great too.
Cook in the slow cooker on high for about 5 hours or low for about 8, you can tell when the apples are completely soft. You can mash it with a potato masher or use an immersion hand blender to mix it up if you don't like chunks.

Now that I sold my builder grade home so quickly, I am thinking about what I want to do next. I know I want a place I can make my own, with design that feels like home to me. Like everyone lately I do love white kitchens but this khaki and black kitchen is so appealing. The lighting, the cabinet color and the black storage cabinets all go so perfectly. Who wouldn't love to cook this kitchen and eat at that cute breakfast nook. The ideas in my head for a new home are running ramped.
