Once a month, we send you an email with a handful of things to help make the month ahead a Certified Pretty Good Time.

On the Menu

If you're looking for a simple, festive treat for a class party or gathering, we think this would be cute and yummy for you the kids (and it looks easy enough!).  

What We're Bingeing

WHO HAS TIME TO BINGE IN DECEMBER? Nobody. But, we're soaking in the holiday flicks and monopolizing the TV with our favorite Christmas movies (The Santa Claus for Irene and The Grinch—the original, obviously—for Julie). Also, Julie's book club just wrapped this book and has this viral one on the docket for this month.

Favorites from the Interwebs

This is #relatable and this is aspirational. 

Currently Saving Our Sanity

Listen up. While we're all frantically shopping and wrapping and shopping and wrapping, Julie swears there's something peaceful and satisfying about picking your wrapping paper + ribbon scheme to make these laborious tasks more pleasant. She chose a few rolls of Rifle Paper Co paper and these ribbons. She emphatically claims her tree has never been cuter.

Something for Mom

Between newborn feedings and snuggles, Irene became fixated on getting the perfect at-home mani. After several #fails with various DIY dip kits, she tried this at-home gel kit and #nailedit on the first try. Pro tip: make sure you have enough time before the baby wakes up to finish, unless you enjoy picking up your toddler from school with unpainted thumbs.
