So a few days ago, I got a text from Sara saying that she noticed I had holiday Jello something on the calendar and was wondering if I was FINALLY posting my soon-to-be-world-famous Jello/cottage cheese/shredded carrot concoction. I texted her back that I was. And then I couldn’t stand myself any longer because if there’s…

AKA: “Why yes, you may have that raise” cupcake jars, or “Oh my gosh I think I love you” cupcake jars, or “Yes of course we should agree to a ceasefire, in fact let’s do dinner tonight”  cupcake jars. You get my point, right?  I have no other words, these are amazing.  It’s like Christmas…

I planned on posting today with pictures of Thanksgiving.  I pictured Kate’s home and mine filled with smiling faces and amazing food and picture perfect Pottery Barn styled tables, place cards and all.   Let us be the first to say that things don’t always go as planned!  Kate’s poor family was quarantined with strep throat,…
