Hello everyone! I hope that your week has been a good one! Today, I'm styling this cozy sweater from Target. I paired it with this Prana scarf. I love all of the colors of this scarf. It can be paired with so many things! These boots are old, but I wear them non stop. I linked a similar pair above.


Have you taken your Christmas decorations down yet, or do you leave them up through the New Year? I have taken a few of our decorations down, but will leave the trees up until the New Year (we put up a large one and a small one). I always hate taking them down because everything looks so bare without them. I do however, love to start a new year because it always makes me feel super motivated! On another note, I dropped my iPhone yesterday and shattered my screen for the second time this year. Ugh!! I am in need of a very protective case. Each time that I drop my phone, I buy a different case. This one did not do the trick, so on to the next one! I hope that you have a great day. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hello everyone! I hope that you had a great Christmas weekend spent with family and loved ones. Ours was really good! Adelyn had so much fun opening her gifts and Joe and I had so much fun watching her!


If you are planning to go out for New Year's Eve, this black ruffle blouse would be perfect to wear and it is currently on sale for $21. It would look great with a skirt for a more dressy look. I chose to dress it down with jeans and flats for a more casual look. I have had these lace up flats for a while now and they are some of my favorites! I hope that you have a great day and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Baking

Hey everyone! Since it is Christmas week, Adelyn and I decided to do a little baking. I wanted to share one of my favorite peanut butter cookie recipes with all of you. This is a family recipe and I make these every single year because they are so easy and delicious! Adelyn had so much fun helping this year!


Here's what you will need:


1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 1/4 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt


First, soften the shortening and peanut butter in a microwaveable bowl. Then, add the sugar, egg, flour, baking soda and salt. Next, chill dough for approx. 5-10 minutes. Roll into balls. I like to lightly coat them in a bowl of sugar and then place on baking sheet. Use a fork and press down to create a crosshatch pattern. Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for approx. 10-12 minutes. Let them cool. I like to place a chocolate Hershey's kiss on top after they cool for a few minutes. I hope that you enjoy!

Hello everyone! I hope that your weekend was a good one! Adelyn has been running a fever off and on all weekend, but overall is acting all right, so we aren't sure whether she is teething or fighting off something. Fingers crossed that she will get to feeling better for Christmas. I still need to get out and do some last minute Christmas shopping this week. Other than that, I think we are ready for the weekend.


Tis the season for comfy sweaters, scarves and beanies! That is exactly what I have been living in lately! This sweater is one of my favorites. I bought it last year in two different colors. It is still available in one color, but I linked a very similar one in the green color as well. This beanie is from Nordstrom, but is currently sold out online. I linked one very similar. I hope that you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone! Today, I wanted to share a holiday dress that I wore last weekend to my husband's work Christmas party. This dress is from Francesca's. If you are still in need of a dress, they had a ton of really cute ones available for the holiday season. The necklace, earrings and bracelet that I wore all came in my current Rocksbox. If you have not heard of Rocksbox, you can sign up to receive designer jewelry to be delivered to your home. You receive three pieces at a time and can keep them for as long as you want. Then, you can either purchase the jewelry at a discounted price, or return it for another set. You can use code ashleymbff51 to receive a free month at www.rocksbox.com.


Things have been crazy around here lately! I cannot believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away! I still need to buy a few more gifts and do a little more wrapping. Adelyn just turned two in November, so she really does not need anything! I think this will be a fun year with her though. She loved opening her birthday presents. Now, everytime that she sees a box, or a package is delivered to our house, she says Adelyn's birthday! It will be fun to see her excitement on Christmas Day! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

It is sweater weather here in Indiana. Today, I'm styling this sweater from LOFT. I linked a very similar sweater, but it is not available in red (there are 5 other colors available). I also linked a very similar one in red. This sweater is so soft and I have been living in it lately! I have had this Prana vest for years and I love it! It can be worn with so many things. I linked a similar one above. These boots are also older, but I linked some that are very similar and are on sale! I wear these all of the time.


I hope that you had a great weekend! I caught up on a little Christmas shopping on Saturday and decided that it was the last time that I would be going to the mall before Christmas. It was crazy! I will either order online or go after the holidays. I just cannot tolerate the crowds. Yesterday was so cold and rainy here! We stayed in all day and I did a little baking (cookie dough balls dipped in chocolate are my weakness). Have a great day, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
