today is all about the baking of sweet treats for christmas {that's right family, you can expect some yummy goodies in your mailbox next week}!

baking is one of my favorite things about the holiday season.  it can be so relaxing and it fills our little house with such scrumptious smells!  i have a few awesome recipes i cannot wait to try.  if all goes well, i'll do some food posts next week {that's so unlike me, i know!}.  so keep your fingers crossed my candy adventures are successful!

 and for a lovely treat for your ears, here's the music i'm listening to today while i bake.  it's some of my current favorites. 

 i hope you enjoy!

ps - a HUGE thank you to everyone who left such sweet, supportive comments yesterday! it was so encouraging. and it's so good to know that i'm not alone in my struggles or quest to follow my dream.  so thank you, thank you! let's all stick together shall we?

pps - i've had some random things come up lately which has kept me pretty busy.  but i love reading your comments and i hope to be able to catch up with all your blogs soon!


  1. *Group Hug* :D
    GReat selection of songs! THanks for sharing Kim!

  2. You've selected new music for my ears, so I'm excited to take a listen!

    Happy Baking! I love to bake around the Holidays! Can't wait to read food posts next week!

  3. Good luck with the continued sweets adventures, Kim! And thanks for the excellent new music list. I've been really impoverished when it comes to music lately and an injection of something fresh is precisely what I needed. Sunday is going to be a big baking day for me I think. I just hope I can keep it together and don't end up with too bad a stomach ache from sampling all the goodies.

  4. Ooh, have fun baking today, Kim! :) I'll definitely look forward to your food posts! The holidays are definitely a time for baking :) And thanks for the music list! I have more presents to wrap and cleaning around the house to do, so I'll have your playlist on in the background! :) Have a wonderful day!

  5. I love baking, I have managed to bake 3 kinds of cookies this year, so I'm quite proud of myself:)

  6. Yay for creating! I can't wait to see what you make.
    And seriously, you can do so much in life. Look at your blog and how awesome it is. It's a small reflection of great things in you.

  7. Have so much fun baking! :)
    CAn't wait to listen to your playlist!!1

  8. Nice music selection! I like! And I'm looking forward to your food posts - I love some Holiday culinary inspiration!!

    And remember if you make too much treats you can always post the excess to Scotland...!! ;) Just joking!


  9. Great music list! And I absolutely agree, making delicious baked goods is one of the best things about this time of year! I saw in your 'about me' that you do swing dancing, that's so cool!! I do rockabilly, but found swing impossibly hard..I definitely appreciate watching other people do it though! Enjoy your baking :)

    ps. I love your go-to question when you meet new people, I may have to steal it!

  10. Great song list :) Good luck with the baking, I am sure they will taste delicious

  11. My mama and I are having a bake fest this weekend. I can't wait!

  12. oh darnit! wish i was family so i can get some yummy treats.

    have fun baking ladycakes!

  13. The season of cookies...what a great way to think about it :)
    Love the list!
    Hope your having a great Friday!


  14. Wow--Choir from the Sun was absolutely incredible. Thanks so much for sharing :) I always love your music recommendations.
