Happy Christmas Eve everyone!!!

We are going to Matt’s parents for Christmas so I may not be around tomorrow, so I wanted to write a quick post wishing everyone a a very safe and happy holiday!

We need to remember this is a time to spend with the ones we love.  It is not about the gifts, because the true gifts are our family and friends!

Today has started off great!

I started off with a little bit of this.

And a little bit of this.

I know everyone goes crazy over her All I Want For Christmas, but I love the classics. And I’m sorry. Mariah Carey. On Christmas. Is Classic.

My morning breakfast was also a little bit extra special due to my wonderful friend Kimmie.

Yesterday I got a surprise delivery and found this at my doorstep.

my mouth instantly started drooling. matts hands immediately went into the peppermint eggs.

Is she not amazing???

Kimmie and I have been friends since high school and I must say she has been the one person I have really kept in touch with since I’ve moved and heck even before I moved and she has always been there for me always.

Some of my best friends today, I’ve met through college and when I lived in Indianapolis, but Kimmie has always been a true friend I know I can always count on. She has been supportive through everything I have gone through in my life and continues to be. She truly reminds me of what it is to be a good person and to be a true friend and I only hope I give her half the friendship she gives me. Kimmie I love you!!

I also got a few requests for the Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie I posted about yesterday.  Here is what I put into it.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake (Pie)

♥ ♥ ♥

For Crust:

You can most certainly make your own crust, but since I made my pie at 7am a store bought graham cracker crust was used.

For Filling:

One 8-oz. tub cream cheese, room temperature

2  Chocolate Pudding Snacks (I used soy chocolate pudding, but feel free to use whatever brand/type you like)

1/3 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup cool whip

For Peanut Butter Topping:

1-1/2 cups cool whip

3-4 tbsp Nutella (feel free to use whatever nut butter you want, but I wanted to keep with the chocolate theme)

3 sheets graham crackers (crushed)


In a medium bowl, combine  cream cheese, pudding, sugar, and vanilla extract. Using a handheld electric mixer, whisk until smooth. Fold in 1/2 cup Cool Whip.

Transfer mixture to a large pie pan and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine remaining 1 1/2 cups Cool Whip with peanut butter. Whisk until smooth and uniform in color. Spread over the “pie.”

Cover and refrigerate until chilled and slightly firm, about 2 hours. Meanwhile, crush  graham crackers into fine crumbs, and set aside.

Once ready to serve, top pie with crushed cookies/graham crackers.

Enjoy with a spoon, fork, fingers, however you like!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
