Guys, I’m not even sure that blog post title make sense, but I’m rolling with it – full steam ahead.

Also, guys (guys, girls, moose, cats), I have so many stories to tell you! Like about how we got our 18 foot Christmas tree in the house. And no, we weren’t that car that was stopped in MA for having a giant tree on a tiny car. I got tagged in that article 17 times. Different town! Also, we have a hulking minivan. Photos will follow! Also, I met my new niece yesterday and that was an entire adventure on its own. I walked away from my life for one whole perfect day. Here’s a sneak peek:

Adorable, right? Right. So I have many stories to tell but one of them is a story of holiday recipes! I have so many to share and much less time than I thought. So we shall begin! Mistletoe Cupcakes. The kids love them, ever since I brought home real mistletoe about a week ago. These are easy and festive. There’s not much else to say than that. And that they photograph well, but it’s hard to ruin cupcakes during the holiday season! I make cupcakes from scratch, but hey, go crazy.

Kiss Me Under the Mistletoe.. Cupcakes — 8 Comments

  1. Aw, love your mistletoe cupcakes and seriously couldn’t stop smiling seeing all your pics on Facebook of your newest niece. Cannot wait to here the back story of how that day unfolded hopefully soon here. As for which celebrity I’d kiss under the mistletoe, that is a tough one as there are a few in recent times. But I guess if I had to pick one it would have to be Justin Hartley from This Is Us, because seriously how could you not want to kiss him LOL 😉

  2. Congratulations on your adorable niece! I really like that mistletoe grows naturally on the large oaks that surround my house. Even though it’s a parasite, the oaks are too mighty to mind 🙂

  3. Oh these are so stinking cute <3 as is your niece!! Adorable. I’m glad you were able to sneak away from life for a moment to enjoy baby snuggles. Nothing better 🙂

    Okay I’m able to kiss a celeb under the mistletoe. Can I pick Seth Rohan?! You know about my weird obsession with him—it’s his quirky, self-deprecating sense of humor!
