We’re gearing up for a cookie exchange party over here! Have you been to one before? It’s pretty amazing. All the homemade, delicious cookies you can imagine. I love a good cookie exchange, because I get to try different cookies that I usually make at home.
Here are a couple of tips I’ve learned over the years to help make your party a success.
This time around I had the kids help out and decorate the shortbread and gingerbread cookies. Gotta love the enthusiasm, right? World Market made it pretty easy on us by offering ready-made shortbread, along with frosting and sprinkles. I also picked up this gingerbread gnome kit. Because the more the merrier right? World Market literally had everything I needed for the party. I love it when you can everything done in one shopping trip!!
We always buy fresh Christmas trees. It makes it hard to live the life of a blogger though, since bloggers start decorating for Christmas earlier and earlier these days!
Nothing compares to a fresh cut tree though. I visit the same tree lot year after year because they have my beloved silver tip trees. We usually just have them put a stand on there and bring it home, and we did that this year too, but it’s just not standing straight. Plus, I can never get my tree collar to fit around it – I didn’t want to have to trim off 2 layers of branches either. So…I figured it was time to invest in a legit Christmas tree stand.
I wanted one that functioned as well as it looked and was reasonably priced. For some reason that was tall order. I finally found one that worked! I ordered it and it should be here tomorrow. I figured I’d share what I found in case you all are looking too!

We LOVE these sleek, architectural wall lamps in any room, especially when they can be brought home for half the price! Inspo from @thelifestyledco https://www.copycatchic.com/2019/12/daily-find-stuff-by-andrew-neyer-swing-dome-light.html

It’s cyber Monday and there are a ton of great sales still going on! What have you guys bought? Most of the deals I shared with you all on Instagram for Black Friday are the sales I took advantage of!
I’ve gotten most of my gift list complete at this point…there are still a couple of little items, but the majority is DONE. I’m glad I was able to take advantage of Cyber Week deals!
I’m still working on a gift for Charlie Pepper, so I gathered up some of the cool things I’ve found so far. There are some cool things for dogs, cats and fish!
1 | wicked bone This looks like a great toy option for any pup.
2 | enamelware bowls Bought these bowls for Charlie and they’re adorable.
3 | treat jar Loving this jar for Charlie’s dental chews and treats.
4 | designer dog bed How great is this bed? Definitely on my wishlist for Charlie, but it’s a bit a splurge, so we haven’t pulled the trigger yet!
5 | furbo Love this interactive camera that distributes treats as well as enables for remote communication with your pup.
6 | smart dog collar Good looking collar on its own, but it also tracks your dog’s whereabouts!
7 | fish tank I’ve been wanting a biOrb fish tank for awhile now. I love their sleek, modern aesthetic.
8 | sleekez I originally started using these for the horses I ride, but it works amazing on Charlie too!
9 | bandana How cute is this bandana?
10 | cat scratcher I love the look of this cat scratcher, so fun.
11 | smart ball A great toy for cats!
12 | wall cat bed OMG the best. If we had a cat, I’d be all over this!
13 | did you feed the dog? We have issues with this in my house. This would be a lifesaver.
14 | bow tie So dapper for the holidays, right?
15 | pet first aid I spent a ton of time last summer creating a really comprehensive first aid kit. So why wouldn’t you want one for the pets in the house as well?
