...Christmas trees!

I found these on my camera the other night! Such a cute surprise. We cut down my first Christmas tree on a warm December day, I didn't even need a coat. Cool, global warming, my first Christmas tree cutting experience was supposed to be surrounded by a blanket of white snow. But we managed. And took some cute pics.

...a new favorite recipe

Oh She Glows is a vegan blog that I haven't explored much, but after this recipe I think I may have to return to regularly.

These are chocolate chip cookie dough balls and oh my goodness they are AWESOME. Vegan, fairly healthy, and just so yummy.

I followed her recipe, but added cinnamon and omitted the cane sugar.  So they totally tasted like oatmeal cinnamon cookie dough!

1/2 cup unsalted cashews
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (wheat flour would probably work)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp pure maple syrup 
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (I used semi sweet minis!)

Directions: In a food processor, add the cashews and oats and process until it forms a fine crumble. Now add in the salt, sugar, and flour and process for a few seconds more. Add in the maple syrup and vanilla and process until combined. It will be sticky, but this is normal! Add in your chocolate chips and stir by hand or process. Form into balls. (I didn't even try do this step obviously...) Store in freezer.

A Downtown Abbey worthy early 20th century ring.

Something to pair with a full skirt.

Something sweet to nom on.
