Easiest Homemade Donuts

We started a new tradition on Christmas morning. Making homemade donuts. This was about the easiest recipe EVER, and what better than to make some quick and easy yumminess before getting to the best part...opening presents.

All you need is non-flaky biscuits, something to cut a hole in the donuts...

Vegetable oil to fry the biscuits...

Granulated sugar and cinammon mixed together for the sugar donuts...

Powdered sugar, 2 tblsp. of milk, and 1 tblsp of butter for the glazed donuts (you can add 1/4 tsp of vanilla too, didn't try it like this but I think it's what it needed.) Melt about 3-4 tblsp of butter in another bowl, from the frying pan place donuts on napkin, then dunk in bowl of butter, then in glaze or sugar mix and fully cover the donut.

And there you have it...delicious EASY homemade donuts.

Just grab yourself a glass of milk...and enjoy.

Christmas Gift Wrap

Merry Christmas!!!

I hope everyone spent the day surrounded by love. I can't believe how fast Christmas came and went..just in a blink of an eye. And just like that, Next year's Christmas will be here. Well before this Christmas is forgotten with the busy new year, I wanted to share bits of my gift wrap. It is super simple, nothing grand. The babe volunteered (ok, not really) in handling the glue gun, while I wrapped away (prefer wrapping 100x's to gift bags). The most challenging was probably finding pictures to use as the "gift tag" of everyone you are giving a gift to, but it was fun to go through pictures. The gift wrapping was such a success, I may have to do it again next year.

Winter Hat Love

I love a good hat. And Winter is perfect for one of these fabulous floppy/fedora hats. I spotted some on my way home today as I was driving window shopping (that's just how I do it lol) but I might just have to go back tomorrow and get me a cute winter hat because I definitely don't have enough ;-)

Sweet Christmas Photos

Helloooo! Been MIA with so much to do for the holidays. Here is a little what I've been up to. Lots of cuteness and sweetness it.

Via my Instagram the past 2 weeks have consisted of christmas decorating, spotting dolphins and seals out in the bay, taking sweet photos of my little niece, capturing special photos of a sweet girl and her sweet mama, and re-arranging my art wall too (but more on that later this week.)

Here are the christmas photo shoots I did. (sorry about small photos, just click to make bigger)

Love this sweet angels smile. She melts my heart. Cutest baby EVER!!!

And how gorgeous is my friend? Love these two. So much fun taking these photos.

Seriously, this cutie pie might as well be a GAP model. Hello GAP model scouts out there, this is your girl.

Till next time
