Weekend Memo

I feel like I went to bed Thanksgiving night with my turkey coma and I’m now just waking up. Seriously, where has the last 3 weeks gone? It’s flown by and I can’t believe in just a few days Christmas is here. I look forward to this time of year pretty much all year long, and honestly, I don’t think it’s long enough. I wish the end of year took longer to end. But alas, a new year I shall welcome with open arms and ready for new things, new adventures, new goals, and new projects, but more on that later.

Last Minute Holiday Things

The last two weeks before Christmas are always the craziest. It just so happens that my son’s birthday is a few days before Christmas so I’m always behind either in party preparations or getting my act together for Christmas. No matter how much I plan beforehand there are always last minute holiday things to get done. This week I have been working on sending my Christmas cards along with some holiday shopping and gift wrapping. And there’s still packing to be done for our trip down to South Carolina. We leave tomorrow! Thank goodness for coffee and my delicious homemade cinnamon rolls with a twist {I added chocolate chips to make them more decadent}.
