So today was a very productive. This weekend I have a 4 day weekend (kind of, I had to go into work this morning for a meeting). There's a lot going on - tonight we have Derek's work Christmas party, tomorrow morning the Young Life women's brunch, and tomorrow night our Bible study dinner, but in between all the celebrating I am hoping to get a few things done, such as:

1. Make Christmas cookies
2. Write Christmas cards and get them sent out
3. Finish up some Christmas shopping and get gifts wrapped
4. Do a little crafting

So today, after work I had lunch with my friend Carly, and then got to working on number 1 on my list. I have several different kinds of Christmas cookies I would like to make, so I dedicated today to making things dipped in chocolate. I made buckeyes, chocolate covered ritz peanut butter crackers that I learned about from my friend Kari, and chocolate covered pretzels.

Everything looks so great, I can't wait to share them with friends! Other things that made me happy today - I got to wear my red and white striped Williams-Sonoma apron, and listen to my 2 favorite Christmas albums: Reliant K - Let it Snow Baby, Let it Reindeer, and Jessica Simpson's Christmas album. I even finished up a half an hour before our Christmas party tonight, which is why I have time to blog about it. Oh happy day!

I'm so glad you got part of your list finished and I am glad we got to go to lunch and that we are friends! Yay! Also the boys started to beat us pretty bad in catch phrase after you and Sarah left! Shhh don't tell them! :)
