My time management skills have been somewhat lacking as of late. Mostly in the sense that I have no idea what day it is or how long it has been since I’ve updated my blog. (For the record, it’s been too long).
For the holiday, the mister and I drove our two snuggly pets two hours across the state to feast on things like turkey and stuffing. Well, the animals didn’t eat those things but they joined us on our trek.
Thanksgiving dinner was spent at the familial home of the mister. Around a warm table of his close family. And adorable Boston Terriers.
The evening ended with me not quite sleeping on my dad’s couch, watching American Dreams on DVD until about 1am. Though I’m usually an expert couch sleeper, I failed to catch any z’s this time around. Most likely because I knew I had to wake up at 5am for some insane deal hunting.
I must say that hanging out with family while shopping is surprisingly fun. Due to a lack of sleep on all parts everyone was quite slap happy.
But the BEST part about this past weekend has to be the fact that I got to clean the apartment and decorate for Christmas. Man. I love Christmas. The apartment looks like magic when it’s all lit up. Granted, I didn’t photograph all of it, I thought I’d share some of my holiday cheer.
I finally did it. I baked some delicious sugar cookies using the recipe from Bake at 350. I even made my own royal icing and tried my hands at flooding.
Now, I should tell you that daily savings time sucks and that by the time I was finished it was too dark out for good photos. But they’re impressive. Next time I’ll document it better.
So, there you have them folks. I’m honestly really excited about them!! I’m ready for custom orders 😉
So, you’d think that’s the tip top of my cookie excitement, right? Well, you are so wrong!!
When shopping at Michaels for cookie stuff, I was unable to find any good cookie cutters. A fact I complained about to my loving boyfriend for at least 30 minutes. That’s a tip for you: Don’t go to Michaels looking for cookie cutters.
But now it’s Friday. And Friday the 13th no less. But something AMAZING happened. I received a package. This is huge. I never receive packages. Ever. What could it be?
Oh man. Who’s it from? Why is it here? What is it? Oh man, oh man!
Did you guess yet?
Oh man. SOMEBODY loves me. I say somebody like that to emphasize that I’m not entirely sure who this anonymous gift is from. I say that…but I’m certain it’s a certain awesome lady.
But how amazingly sweet is it to receive an anonymous gift and have it be cookie cutters? Just when I’m all mopey about things I get this nice gift. I love you mystery gift giver. You made my day. Now, I’ll make you cookies. 🙂
