Best of 2013

As Tim and I prepare for a small New Years Eve gathering we are hosting at our apartment, I thought I would share some of my favorite posts from 2013. This year has been a true blast. I've grown, this blog has grown, and I couldn't ask for anything more.

Best Recipe: Funfetti Cookies. This has to be one of my favorite cookies of all time. I actually just made these as Christmas cookies with red and green sprinkles!

Most Useful DIY: Chalkboard Spice Jars. Whenever I'm cooking or baking, I open my spice drawer and am so happy I decided to make these jars. So helpful and I love having everything consistent and easy to change if I need to.

Favorite Cocktail: Apple Cider Margaritas. I hope that in 2014, I continue to create some yummy cocktails. I made these margaritas for a recent Christmas party and they were such a hit! These are also a great I-need-to-relax-after-work cocktail.

Best Home Decor DIY: Our Modern TV Stand. So listen, I didn't create this (Tim did) or even think it up, but I love this piece of furniture. It offers us a ton of storage, it fits our style, and Tim put it together, which makes it special to me.

Best Cupcake Recipe: Snickerdoodle Cupcakes. I had to give cupcakes their own category. And even though I rarely eat most of the cupcakes I make, I made sure to save a couple of these to savor.

Favorite DIY: Confetti Votive Candle Holders. These are just such a fun, festive, easy DIY. I think these might be my favorite thing I created in 2013.

That's it! I wish you all a happy New Year. Make sure there's confetti and champagne cocktails!
