Hi everyone! Yes, I’m still alive–it’s been a while, but we’ve had a long year trying to move overseas! It’s been a lot of work, and I haven’t had time to check back to the site until now. I can’t believe how popular the Disney aprons post was!! It has inspired me to find some more cool aprons or Disney-themed posts in the near future, so stay tuned Did any of you end up buying an apron? If so, send in your pics so I can share them on the site!
Anyways, I was just searching the net for gift ideas for family and friends since the holidays are coming up soon. And of course I always end up finding things that I’d want for myself too My favorite accessories are things for the kitchen (that’s why I made this site in the first place!) I’m sure a lot of you out there feel the same way, so I decided to make a list of some really cool kitchen gift ideas I’ve been finding. Hopefully it will help some of you with your shopping! Just click on the “continue reading” link below to check it out. Have fun–and btw, if you have suggestions, let me know in the comments, and I’ll add it to the list!
