SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY 🎁

There’s a special place in my heart for small businesses because I have one!! Yes! Realtors are small business owners too! We work really hard for our customers much like locally owned businesses do. Our businesses are run with our local community in mind - we put a LOT of LOVE into our products and services!

When purchasing gifts or dining out this holiday season (and throughout the year) remember the family owned, local small businesses - they’ll treat you like family because that is who these businesses are supporting ❤️

Looking for recommendations? Here are some of my favorite small businesses you shouldn’t miss 👇

This announcement comes with a heavy heart….. 🥺

While I had absolutely planned on offering my yummy cinnamon rolls for Christmas this year, I had NOT planned on an emergency appendectomy.
Recovery has been going LESS THAN SMOOTH.
I’m not used to NOT being able to do absolutely everything in the world.
This is tough for me…..😢

Although I cannot offer them to you for Christmas, I WILL be offering them very soon.

Just let me heal up, get through the holidays (and no, my tree isn’t even up yet….thanks to mine & my son’s recent hospital stays😭) & feel back to normal again.

I’ll be back to new soon, minus that angry appendix ❤️

Merry Christmas, everyone. 🎄
I ❤️ my cookie peeps!

Though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.” ✨💫

With that said……

ALL ABOARD!! The St Isidore Catholic School Bloomingdale IL Polar Express train departs today!!!

Got your ticket? Grabbed a yummy cookie? PJ’s on?

***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***

If you had Advent Calendars that were scheduled to be picked up today, you got a text from me this morning saying all calendar pickups will be TOMORROW from 9am-1pm instead.

I ended up in the hospital having an emergency appendectomy on Wednesday but am back in the kitchen working hard on your treats with the help from a few of my favorite elves.

I’ve heard back from most of you, but there’s a handful that I didn’t, so I just wanted you to know I’m running a day behind.

To recap, Friday Advents will now join Saturday Advents from 9am to 1pm on Saturday.

Thanks so much for your understanding. ❤️

**Congratulations to Heidi Hopkins on selecting the number**

Ok today’s episode of #ThankfulThursday I want to play a game (and so will you)…..

I’m so incredibly thankful for each and every one of you for supporting my business and helping make all my dreams come true. Your friendship and overall kindness has been beyond amazing.

So let’s get into the game. I’m going to supply the person who first guesses the correct number of cookies in my photo with a 12 Day Cookie Advent Calendar FOR FREE!

Yup, it’s that simple, you guess correctly (within 3 cookies) and this $50 cookie set is all yours for pickup on December 10th or 11th.
*Remember…photos can be deceiving 😈

Post your guesses in the comments below with one catch- no more than 12 guesses per person & they can’t be consecutive!

Good luck and “thank you” for being you!

I’ll go “ALL-IN” to make sure your cookie payout is the best in town!

Little heartfelt post today….

Remember last year when I had to take time off from making cookies to take the job of Nurse Mom for my son Drew?

For those who don’t know, my son was T-boned & wedged under a semi truck in a horrific car accident last year. He was a healthy, strong, 18 year old college Freshman football player.
He came home one weekend & our lives were changed in an instant.
He had to withdraw from school & endured countless emergency, life saving surgeries & procedures to survive.

Guys….he made it.

It was quite the journey, but he got through.
If you know, you know 🥺

He re-enrolled in college this past January & fought hard to get back to where he was physically before the accident….he had lost almost 50 lbs & had 3 full abdominal surgeries due to the hole in his colon caused by the seatbelt.
He spent 33 days in the hospital (yup…that’s his football number too! 💚)

Last Saturday, my son Drew earned FIRST STRING on his football team.
Not only did he make it back onto that field, he was the starting kicker 💚🏈🦵🏼

Today, he has earned it again.

Today, the fans will not only know my son out there, they’re gonna know his cheering mama in the stands!

COOKIES FOR EVERYONE!!! 💚🏈💚

GOOOOOO LAKERS!!!!!

(His then/now pic is in the comments! 🥰)

Spent the weekend working on some amazing new treats to enjoy on these chilly mornings. Each one of these tasty Cinnamon Rolls weighs in at 1/2lb dripping with gooey icing!!

Lmk, in the comments below, if you’d be interested in having some of these dropped off on your doorstep Christmas morning? No baking required, just reheat and serve. Your kids may just wait on opening their presents from Santa!

Still working out the details and more to come soon!
