There’s only one thing I love as much as pizza…doughnuts. While I do have a small amount of willpower when it comes to refusing these doughy rings of deliciousness when I’m out and about, if I make them at home, I will eat them. It’s just a fact. And that is one of the many reasons I never make them at home.
January is the month of birthdays for me. The hubs birthday is next week (as well as four other people I know) but we are delaying celebrating until the end of the month when we fly south for the winter.
Don’t laugh, but I have always wanted a designated coffee station. Silly…maybe. Basic…extremely. But we have one, it’s functional, and I love it.
2016 was a big year for Not Entirely Ordinary. It was the first full year since the relaunch and it has been an eye-opening year for sure. Before, when I started blogging, I didn’t stick to any sort of schedule, content, look, etc. But this past year I have worked really hard to make this blog something to be proud of.

Last year I worked up a batch of Gingerbread cookies to test my patience, and my ability to work royal icing. Truth, I failed on attempts 1-5.
I’m absolutely ok with the fact that I’ve decided to make cookies at the beginning of each week in the month of December. Coincidentally so is my husband, his coworkers, and now my coworkers.
I first made these cookies (via Bakerella) years ago in an effort to impress my in-laws when they came to DC for Thanksgiving.

While I’m not participating in any actual cookie swaps (not entirely sure what a cookie swap is), I am baking, and consuming a lot of cookies this Christmas season.
I feel like things have been INSANE for the last couple of months. I know I haven’t posted on my regular post schedule, missing a day here or there. To be honest, I didn’t post on days where I didn’t feel 100% inspired to post something. Slapping together posts just to make sure I stick to my schedule really means nothing if I’m just posting to put something up on time.
