ReView: Old Fashioned Gingerbread, Barbie Outfit from $1 Socks, and a Christmas question...

As the holiday season officially kicks off, I have a bit of a conundrum folks... I spent yesterday putting up a new Christmas tree, and I don't like it. Ugh. So, do I spend this Christmas with that tree, or look for another one and redecorate for this year? Certainly not the biggest problem to have, but I know I won't be using this tree again next year! Oh well, you know what I do like? This great recipe for Old Fashioned Gingerbread! This can be a cake or cupcakes, and the recipe is easily cut in half. A simple cream cheese frosting is literally the perfect icing on the cake for this seasonal treat:@)

And over on DIY Barbie Blog
This is an easy project (great for sleepovers), 
and I think it would be fun for the girl to pick out the socks she'd like to use.

Happy decorating and have a great weekend:@)

  1. Can you wrap it in enough garland to live with it for a month? I hope so!!! Good luck.

  2. When we knew we needed to replace ours we took our time hunting for the tree we really wanted and then grabbed it when they were marking them down. We got a much nicer tree than we normally would have bought if we'd bought it in season. We put it in the attic when it arrived and brought it down for the next tree trimming. We disposed of the old tree when when we took down the decorations for the season.

  3. gift the tree to someone who can't afford one and get yourself something you like. The gingerbread are ADORABLE and I'll be really tasty.
