Coconut Macaroon Nutella Cookie Nests

I have to be honest. I totally judge desserts by their cover. Mind you, some of the yummiest treats I’ve ever eaten were less than stellar looking, but overall, I hardcore judge a dessert table. Luckily, the Easter recipe I’m sharing today is both adorable and delectable.

Sweet Treats for Easter Sunday

Happy Holy Week! 😉

As Easter Sunday rapidly approaches, many people are preparing their holiday menus. My Mom is hosting at our home this year, and while she is hands down THE hostess with the mostest – it’s safe to say that baking is not her favorite pastime. Lucky for her, she has two daughters and a slew of nieces and sister-in-laws who love to do so!

And we always show up!

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Michael Minelli Cover

I’ve posted about my superstar of a boyfriend, the talented Michael Minelli a few times before, and today I’m doing so again!

He just covered ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ & filmed a fun little video last Monday! I popped in at the shoot (after RHOBH, obviously) to bring the boys some cookies. I ended up staying the whole time to help them out with some shots, but oh my gosh was it freezing!! It makes me laugh how calm & relaxed they always look in their final videos when all I can think about is how cold/hot/tired/hungry/etc they were at the time.

I wanted to share some pictures I took that night! Unfortunately, I was shivering so much that they ended up being a bit blurry, luckily, they still look handsome as ever 🙂

Now that you’ve seen some fun behind the scenes pics, here is the final product! It’s beautiful, it’s festive, it’s been replaying in my car, phone, at my desk & will continue to do so this holiday season!
