Our Christmas Card + An Announcement

We are so excited to announce that we have a baby on the way! Our friends and extended families heard the announcement by way of our Christmas card this year :) We are so incredibly thankful for this answer to prayer, and we could not be more excited! I have been pretty sick these first few months, which is another reason why I've been so quiet around here. In the last couple of days I've started to feel a little better, so I'm hoping I'm turning the corner and will be somewhat back to normal soon. In the mean time I'm snacking all day long and trying to get everything done in time for Christmas (how did Christmas get here so fast this year?!). Hope you are enjoying this Christmas season! xx

Mexican Hot Chocolate Chex Mix

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We were so thankful to have a few days off of work to be able to travel to see both of our families. It was a really relaxing holiday, just spending time together and of course eating way too much. On Thanksgiving day, my niece and nephew helped me make this party Chex mix, and everyone was munching on it before Thanksgiving dinner. It takes only 15 minutes to throw together, and you can tell it's going to be delicious just by looking at the ingredients! This would be the perfect treat to make for a holiday party or to package up and give to friends or neighbors. The recipe we made is below, and you can find other recipes for party mixes here!
