Stocking Stuffers for Guys

Happy St. Nick’s Day! What is St. Nick’s Day, you ask? There is definitely a religious aspect to today’s holiday, but I am going to touch on the cultural elements of it that make today one of my favorite holiday traditions.

Thanksgiving Menu 2016

Thanksgiving NEXT WEEK! It’s my favorite holiday and I am thrilled to be spending it with my little family. My parents are flying in from Phoenix on Wednesday and we’ll spend Thanksgiving Day here in Minnesota, just the 4 of us… #3musketeersplusG We usually go to Cedarburg for Thanksgiving, but we are mixing it up this year – it will be nice to have quality time together and delicious eats! Friday, we’ll head to my grandparents’ house in northern Wisconsin and spend the day with my not-so-little little cousins, aunt, uncle, and grandparents. Should be a relaxing and really fun […]
