what I got for christmas 2015

This is our beach-themed Christmas tree

Christmas in Florida is extremely hot this year {85 in December!}, but it just means the holidays can be celebrated in shorts and tank tops! My family and I spent the morning exchanging gifts, eating homemade french toast, and drinking peppermint mochas. I wanted to share some of the gifts I received this year. I always love seeing what people got for Christmas. I also enjoy opening up gifts and taking pictures of them in a festive way so much! In no way am I sharing this to be showy because I am very grateful for all of these wonderful and thoughtful presents. Thank you so much for coming to my blog and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Kate Spade Cedar Street Small Harmony Tote Bag 


My Mom got this bag for me at the Kate Spade store just when they were marking it down! Instead of $268 it was on sale for $134 and then was additionally 25% off. I am so excited to use this for school for all my notebooks and other supplies. 

This is the french toast I made in the morning! I used a pretty simple recipe:

1/4 cup of milk, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1 egg. Combine the ingredients and soak both sides of 1 slice of bread into the mixture and place it in a saucepan on medium heat until golden brown. Top with whipped cream, honey/syrup, and berries. They came out delicious!
