Good Morning all! Happy Wednesday! With some exciting things from the beginning of the week like the Under Armour Giveaway Challenge & my Carrot Cake French Toast Recipe, my weekend recap got a bit pushed back! Which is all good though because recapping on a Wednesday is making me look forward to this weekend even more!

Mamacakes & I decided to get our tree up & decorate on Friday. Every year it’s been our tradition to do this together & I look forward to it every December. 

We grew up getting a real tree every year but since we are traveling this year to visit family over Christmas we get a real pretty [not real] tree. Not real because I think the words fake & artificial are a bit negative & I really like our tree! ;]

Anyone elses cat or animal make a new home right under the tree? Our cat Abby looooves hanging out under the tree..

In our house, we turn on the Christmas music, the fireplace, grab a glass of wine, & make some homemade pizza! I came across this Brown Rice crust at a local health food store with just two ingredients – Brown Rice & Potato! 

Took 1 crust, topped with sauce, veggies, feta, olives, organic pepperoni, butternut squash, fresh thyme, & fresh rosemary!


The crust was super crispy & tasty! I am definitely a fan. I also always have extra red sauce to dip in! 

And everything is always better in a Reindeer wine glass! I always get excited to get these out every year.

With every year brings out the lovely little angel that I once was ;] and still am! This is my mom’s favorite ornament & I just really love that we tried to cover up my cowlick & widows peak with some bangs.

Another favorite of mine is this Blessed ball from my Aunt Kelli. Just a simple reminder how blessed we are to be able to do this together every year.

After the bow is on top we take time to enjoy our work & hang out in the living room by the fireplace. 

I won’t be living at home forever but I do plan on keeping this tradition going every year with my mom, pizza & wine included!

I think it’s important to really take in these moments since I know the Holiday’s can tend to be hectic or stressful for some people. I really don’t let it get to that point & just look at it as a fun time & make the most of each memory.

I’m off to a business meeting then teaching a class later on – Hope you have a great Wednesday!!

be true to you

    I love decorating for Christmas! I haven’t done it with my family in a while since I moved to Canada for school, but for most of my life we used to decorate the Christmas tree as part of my birthday weekend celebrations (my bday is Nov 20th). They put up they tree long before I get home, but the other decorations go up on Christmas eve when I’m sure to be home 😀
    Your tree looks super pretty btw 🙂

  2. That pizza sounds awesome!! What brand is the crust? I want to see if I can find it in my area.

  3. Brown rice pizza crust sounds delicious!!

    Your cat Abby sitting under the tree is too cute 🙂

    I’ve been learning all that I can about GF due to a medical condition that, according to research, is linked to gluten. It’s worth it to try GF if there is a chance it will help! Good to know about GF pizza crust. Pizza is a staple in our house!
