Random Things

I recently decided to start making my own seasonings! So far I'm loving it, I will be testing out the beef stew seasoning today. I hope it's good.

Anyone else love National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation?! I couldn't resist ordering these glasses haha. Priceless!



Yup this is a giant peanut butter cup that I bought Kyle, 8oz of chocolate and peanut butter goodness. :)


I made this cake last week for Kyle's 1SGT's birthday. Chocolate chip cake with chocolate chip buttercream. It was divine!


I broke out my Christmas slipper socks, I got these at Target several years ago and they are still my favorite.


Happy Thursday!
