7 Holiday Treats That Make The Season A Little SWEETER

Who couldn't use some sweets for the holidays.

7 Holiday Treats That Make The Season A Little SWEETER

From December 1- Dec 31 sweets are basically pushed at you and when you try and refuse, it's met with "But it's Christmas, the calories don't count"! I wish we could all eat every sweet that was offered to us. If you know your New Year's Resolution is going to be to hit the gym more and if you're trying to not consume your body weight in sugar on a daily basis (but let's face it, some days it's hard to avoid doing just that) here, are some of my favorite holiday treats that I tend to pick over the others.

1. Hot Chocolate (w/ a Candycane)

Hot Chocolate is a great because you can sip on it and enjoy it for a while as opposed to just being done in a bite or two.

2. Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies are double fun because you get to decorate them AND eat them.

3. Cherry Shortbread 

Especially when half is sipped in chocolate, and it has cherries so you can tell yourself it's healthy right.

4. Candy canes

Basically the Christmas version of lollipops.

5. Fudge

With or without nuts, fudge is just a Christmas classic.

6. Kettle Corn 

Again, like the sweeter, more holidayish version of regular popcorn.

7. Ferror Roche's 

I am fan of quality cholcate and these are just so easy to pop in your mouth (a little too easy, and may lead to eating like 10 of them). But so so good.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
