What a weekend. I won’t bore you with all the details BUT, Friday, I thought I was going to have this super fab day. Shopping with my mom and sister in the city, kid free, and an impromptu overnight at a swanky hotel and OH, also an impromptu bout of the flu. And we will just leave it at that.
Well, it’s Sunday and I’m not a 100% YET but, better. Still a lot to do for Christmas and this just kind of took my energy to a new low.
Are you done shopping? I have maybe one or two more things to order tomorrow and one more target run. But now I’m onto figuring out food. Regular old meals for the week, Christmas Eve at my house, what I need to bring to Christmas and OH Christmas cookies. I always do sugar cookies, magic cookie bars, Polish Jam Kolacky‘s and peanut butter blossom type cookies. What Christmas cookies do you make every year?
As much as I love looking at decor magazines, books and blogs and I am equally in love with a good cookbook and food blog. Perfectly photographed food is magnifique. And there is something so comforting and personal to me about reading recipes.
Somehow, from somewhere, I wondered upon the blog What Katie Ate? The blog is pure eye candy and in the literal sense. BUT….. there is also an online mag (gorgeous photos above from the current issue):
Sit down with some tea and of course a Christmas cookie and dig in.
And one more thing to read….if you’re stressing about it ALL . . .
A great post from Tracey Porter on how she “does it all.”
Happy Christmas Week!
oh and maybe we should try these?
