Happy Friday!!  We only have 5 days until Christmas and I am not ready!  Are you?  As of 2:20 today I will be in strictly Christmas mode.  I had so much school stuff to do first.  I am linking up with Andrea, etc.  so go right hereto see more favorites from the week! 

We had some beautiful snow this week and I loved seeing it from my classroom window.  That gets me in the mood for Christmas!  It melted by the end of the day, sadly.  

My son found this jacket for $10 at Kohls this summer and could not wait to wear it for ugly sweater day at school.  It has gingerbread men and says “bite me”.  I was a bit worried that his teachers/my colleagues would be offended but he said they liked it.  


I love home made rice krispies treats!  I made these for some special people this week!  I don’t think I will add the marshmallows to the top again.  I could not get them arranged in a uniform way.  

I also made sausage squares for breakfast for a school pitch in.  This is the best recipe if you are making Christmas breakfast or brunch and you can make them the day before because that is what I did.  I undercooked a bit and then cooked about 8 minutes more the morning of. 

2 crescent roll tubes (or 2 crescent sheets)

one roll of sausage (1 lb.)

one block of cream cheese

shredded cheddar if desired

I used the rolls but the sheets would look better but I cut them and they looked fine. 

Lay down a tube of rolls or sheets and seal perforations.  

Brown the sausage.  When done, add the block of cream cheese and mix and stir til melted.  

Put this mixture on top of crescent rolls.  Sprinkle about a cup of cheese if desired.  

Add second layer of crescent rolls and seal perforations and also pinch together the two layers of rolls so the sausage mixture doesn’t come out.  

Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.

These are soooo good and taste like biscuits and gravy.  

Would you try either of these simple but crowd pleasing (as long as your crowd isn’t too fancy!) recipes?  

What were your favorites this week?  

If you missed any posts, this week I talked about my weekend here, my favorite decor here, What I Wore here, and my thoughts on Christmas with kids here.  

As always, thank you for reading!  I do plan to post over the break, but I may reduce my posting schedule.  I hope you will check back here and let me just go with the flow! 

Also, what would you like to see more of here in 2020?  I would love to know!  I will continue to keep my blog totally amateur – haha!  

Happy last weekend before Christmas!

  1. LOVE the gingerbread jacket!

    I’ve got another favorite foundation for you. Possibly all-time favorite. Possibly holy grail status. And you may think I’ve lost my mind. But I need you to trust me on this.

    If you ever find yourself at a Dollar General, first of all, I’m sorry, because they’re dirty, horrible places. But, they have a makeup brand called Believe. The foundation is $5. And it. is. PERFECT!!! I’ve tried tons of foundations, from Wet & Wild to Chanel, and none of them come close to looking as perfect on my skin as this one does. The shade range is awful, but if you can find one close, you NEED to try it!

  2. Love the sausage crescent rolls! I have a coworker who brings these to the office and she actually makes individual stuffed crescent rolls. So good and they do taste like biscuits and gravy! Have a lovely break and a very Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you and you are too kind. It’s been so cool to “meet” you and people who don’t read blogs don’t understand! I’m planning to post at least 3 times each week!
