Coffee and a Giveaway!

My holiday decorations are still at the idea stage. Yesterday, I spent a sleigh-load of money at Hobby Lobby, but I have to find the time to put it all together. Since I'm convinced there are only 14 days in the whole month of December, I will get going soon.

I am having a Holiday Entertaining Giveaway, and all you have to do is scroll down for how to enter. But, first I thought you might like a little snack.

This picture was the inspiration for this coffee themed snack!

You can find the recipe for the biscotti here!

One thing I love about this time of year is the Cuties!!!

This is my very first giveaway and I am SO excited! You can enter through December 7th and the winner will be announced on the 8th!
