on cloud nine.
This morning at my English III tutorial, my teacher gave all of us students holiday treats. It totally made my morning. {so of course, before I enjoy these cranberry white chocolate chip cookies, I had to take pictures to share with everyone over at carlotta's blog.}

reuse it.
It's interesting how something seemingly useless can be reused to be something quite useful. This empty candy cane box proved to be just the thing my desk was missing... an electronic organizer. I cut holes in the back of it where the charging cords can connect without being seen.

 surprised much.
I think this one speaks for itself.

some new reading material.
I was at a department store the other day, skimming through the books. I crossed paths with these two: 100 Best Health Foods and the Vegetarian Bible. I know. I honestly wouldn't have thought I would ever have an interest in food literature {and just bare with me while I ramble about it}. But these books are amazing. They're full of facts about all sorts of delicious things. And best of all, they're full of mouth-watering photos. I can't wait to try some of the recipes in these.
Sigh. Okay, I'm done.


  1. Mmmmm..those cookies look delish--reminds me that I gotta get crackin' with my holiday baking, I have an awesome recipe for a cranberry chocolate chip biscotti that is AWESOME. And what a neat and festive idea for that candy cane box!

  2. Nice detail and bokeh in the first photo; those cookies look tasty.
