Holiday Season has begun!

My roommates and I are hosting a "Pre-thanksgiving Best Friend Fest" tonight; we are making a Thanksgiving meal together before we all leave next week for our separate homes.  It got me in a "holiday mood" as we cooked and listened to Christmas music all day.  I LOVE the holidays.  I don't know if you heard me, love the holidays.  I love the music, the food, the parties, and obviously, the gifts.  But most importantly,  I love the time I get to spend with my friends and family and all of the fun that we have together.  I love the festive decorations and fun things you can do during this period, and thought I would share with you some cool things I cannot wait to try out.

Holiday Sangria, so pretty! Ingredients here.

Christmas Cranberry Ginger Fizz Cocktail.  Love the garnish! Ingredients here.

And the food. Really, come on now, that's what the holidays are for. Eating.

Carmel Apple Pie.  Drooling. Recipe here.

This has three things I like: crescent rolls, mini hot dogs, and an amazingly corny Christmas layout.  

Red. Velvet. Cheesecake. Recipe here.

And of course all of the fun gifts!  I love giving gifts more than I love receiving them; picking out what I think is the perfect gift for someone I love is so much fun.  Wrapping them can be just as fun too!

Make your own tags and wrap in plain brown wrapping.  I love this simple and clean look! I found this on a fantastic blog, BasicGrey, that shows you how to make so many fun and crafty things!

Pringle cans as cookie holders. Seriously, this is adorable.  Especially for coworkers or even as party gifts!  Find out how here!

the wiener wreath is the best thing I have seen in a long time and that includes the rocket launch!
