Creating Simple Holiday Traditions and GIVEAWAY

Hi friends!

I'm talking about Christmas today.

I KNOW!

It's coming whether you're ready or not, so we might as well pretend like we're ready, right? Right.



I love holiday traditions. There is something comforting about knowing that in all the chaos that can come with the holidays, there are some things that are the same every year. We didn't get to do a lot of our holiday traditions last year because we were still trying to find normal. I want to get back to them this year! Every year for all of my life we have had advent calendars. You know those German cardboard ones with the perforated doors and the molded chocolates? Yep, those. LOVE them. Every so often my mom would step up her game and we would do something fancy, but those cardboard ones were there every year without fail.

Those simple traditions are the ones that stick.

Stacked Autumn Wreath

Hi friends!

I haven't had the chance to do a decor project in ages! This one fit the bill perfectly.

I love fall decorating. Like, LOVE it. Probably more than Christmas. There's just something about these warm colors. I don't really do the creepy Halloween decorations, so my fall stuff stays out from September until the day after Thanksgiving (when the Christmas stuff comes out, duh!)

I have a wreath on my front door pretty much year round. Grapevine wreaths are my favorite because they are so easy to switch out with the seasons! However, they can be a little thin sometimes. This fixes that, and gives you more ways to personalize! Bonus!

Chipotle Chicken and Bean Enchiladas with La Morena

Hi friends!

I grew up, and currently live, in the Midwest. Not exactly the hub of authentic Latin food. Tacos were always a staple in our family dinner rotation, but "authentic" isn't quite the word I would use to describe them (unless taco seasoning packets are authentic, but somehow I doubt!). However, my husband and I moved to Phoenix just after we got married, and were introduced to real Latin food. Man, oh man! We had been missing SO MUCH GOOD FOOD! Now I love to get as much authenticity into my recipes as I can, and having products like La Morena available is a huge help! These enchiladas are delicious, and can be personalized to your taste. They also freeze beautifully, and are a great meal to give away!

Sausage and Potato Grill Packs

Hi friends!

I have been trying desperately to avoid turning on my oven this summer. In fact, I've only used it 2 or 3 times since June. I would call that success! In order to do that, I've been using our grill a LOT. However, grilling meat can get expensive, and it can be hard to stretch your budget as far as I'd like. That's why I'm a huge fan of grill packs! This is one of our favorites.
