There are few things in life better than a good mac and cheese recipe, and this one is not only perfectly cheesy and creamy, but it’s also made in the slow cooker! I’ve partnered with the American Dairy Association Mideast today to bring you this delicious recipe, plus a special opportunity for you to give back this holiday season!
The other day I was working on decorating our kitchen a little bit for the holidays, and I realized that this time last year we were still living with our old kitchen and just about to completely tear everything down almost to the studs. It feels like forever since we were living through that month long renovation with construction dust everywhere and eating microwave dinners more times than I want to count, but it is such an amazing feeling to have this beautiful space now, especially around the holidays.
I’ve been doing a ton of baking in here lately, and I have an amazing Gingerbread Bundt Cake recipe that I want to share with you today. It is so simple to whip up and makes a beautiful centerpiece for your holiday table with very little effort! But first, let’s take a little tour around the kitchen…
So many changes have been made to our little farmhouse since last Christmas, and it’s been both a challenge and a joy to have a new, fresh space to decorate this year for the holidays. One of my favorite little areas in our home is the entryway, complete with an antique armoire and mirror, coat hooks and a sweet, little bench, and the front door of my dreams. I recently partnered with Gordmans to create a festive, yet simple entryway for the holidays, and I am so excited to show you how this space turned out!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the farmhouse. Won’t you join me on a tour of our living room?
With the holidays quickly approaching, I wanted to put together a little holiday gift guide that might help give you a few ideas for the people on your list… or a few ideas that you might want to add to your own wish list!
Good morning, sweet friends! The current state of the farmhouse is pretty chaotic as I’m slowly transitioning our fall decor into the holidays, so I wanted to share something really exciting with you today. Have you ever wished there was a handbook that perfectly mapped out how to decorate your home? One that could tell you how to find the right style for your home and family? And where to start and how to stop wasting money on the wrong things?
The Cozy & Beautiful Handbook was created by my dear friend, Shannon Acheson, and after reading through it the past couple weeks, I think this handbook is exactly what we’ve all been searching for.
This post is sponsored by our friends at HomeGoods // Hi, sweet friends! Welcome back to our Farmhouse Holiday Series! Last week I shared the first look at our little farmhouse all decorated for Christmas in our master bedroom, and today I’m continuing on into our dining room with a fun, festive table setting I put together this week. My goal this year is to share easy ideas with you for simplifying the hustle and bustle of the holidays and creating a cozy, inviting home that is the perfect backdrop to create beautiful holiday memories with your loved ones. I truly hope that you enjoy this decorating series as much as I do and get some great ideas for your home!
So this look in our dining room is a little more over the top than I normally do. You guys know me… I’m a less-is-more kind of girl when it comes to decorating the farmhouse, but I couldn’t resist playing with a more whimsical look for the holidays this year, especially once I found some really sweet nutcrackers and these beautiful, little trees while I was out shopping at HomeGoods this past week. If there’s one time of year that you can get away with a big, oversized table setting like this, it’s during the holidays!
And lucky for you guys, I happen to have a $100 HomeGoods gift card that I’m giving away just in time to start your holiday shopping!
