Merry Christmas to All!

Merry Christmas to All!

December 21, 2012

Well, I think that I can officially say I’m ready for Christmas. Meaning the presents are all bought (but not wrapped) and I honestly haven’t baked a darn thing this year! Can you believe it? Shocking, I know. But I really do hope to make up for the baking (and holiday cards and delayed advent activities like ice skating and a trip to see The Hobbit) after the Big Day, while the kids are still out of school. My sister has yet to have her baby and is over a week overdue now (I was 3 weeks late with my first…hoping for her sake that it doesn’t run in the family!) so we’ll definitely have our own little Christmas star this year. I’m really looking forward to some down time and the start of some new traditions. How about you? Will you be busy running to and fro? Or will you be able to snuggle in by the fire for at least a night or two? Here are some last minute holiday DIY’s and inspiration before I sign off…

I’m going to take next week off to hunker down with my family but I wish you all the happiest of Christmases (or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa) and I’ll be sure to check in before the New Year.  Merry Christmas to all! Wishing you only peace, joy and good things over the holidays 🙂



ps….I was soooo disappointed not to make it into the new West Elm Market on Wednesday! We had a bit of a freak snow storm for these parts and the main bridge into the city was shut down due to ice chunks crashing down onto cars…yikes! But I’ll be sure to take lots of pics (although they may not be as good as these) when I go visit very soon.
