Happy Sunday!!! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I was able to leave the cold and rainy weather in Utah and have a much needed girls trip in California with one of my best friends. We have been having such a blast, there is really nothing better than having some girl time! We are loving all the Christmas lights and decor at the hotel and in the city, its just so magical! I cant believe Christmas is only 14 days away, this month is seriously flying by. I wanted to share some cute holiday treats that I’m excited to make and even a couple the kids can help with! Let me know if you guys get a chance to make any 🙂
