Happy Friday, and happy December! It's been a long while, but I thought I'd do another neat things Friday with you all today.

Christmas is right around the corner, and I'm starting to feel festive! I still have to finish decorating my little trees but I spent most of my week trying to settle back into routine after being in Idaho for Thanksgiving. Does it take anyone else forever to get back into the swing of things after being out of town?

I've also been brainstorming some fun new projects for blog posts coming up too, and I'm pretty excited for them. There's just something about the Christmas season that gets me feeling all creative and wanting to make all the things!

Next week I'll start sharing those, and I'll also have a house update post too! But in the meantime, here's some neat stuff I'm thinking about this week :)

Neat Stuff

  1. I've been wanting a classic, neutral apron. I'm a mess when I'm in the kitchen, and it might make my clothes last longer if I start wearing one! I really like this half size and this full one. Both so classic, and definitely a kitchen staple I could use!
  2. We opted out of putting in a bathtub in our house, since neither of us are bath takers and we loved the idea of having a larger shower. After reading this article, it seems like we aren't alone in the idea. How about you? Is a bathtub a necessity?
  3. My grandma makes the best, most chewy and delicious ginger-molasses cookies, and not being able to eat much sugar means I can't really enjoy them any more. I tried a modification on this low carb version which turned out pretty good, but I also want to play around with a variation on my grandma's and see what I come up with. I tried one batch that was a fail haha, but I'm going to keep trying!
  4. We get together with Dane's family every year for an annual white elephant Christmas Eve, and this guide of gift ideas is just hilarious! It's giving me ideas for sure ;)
  5. I mentioned on instagram the other day that my parents got me Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden book, and I'm so excited to grow my flower garden for cutting bouquets next summer. I discovered them in a magazine last spring, and I love that they sell coordinating seed collections that you can grow together to make beautiful, cohesive bouquets. One thing that always kept me from trying was not knowing what kinds of flowers to grow, and they took all the guess work out of it! If you've been wanting to do the same, definitely check them out. I ordered the Dusty Rose collection, and I can't wait to get my seeds in the mail!
  6. Since I'm on more of a low sugar kick, I might also try to re-make this recipe from a couple years ago, but in a lower sugar version. It's Dane's favorite, and I really enjoy it too, and Christmas is my favorite time to make goodies so I think I'm going to have to give it a try.
There you have it, all my neat stuff for the week! I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
