I am so ready for the weekend, but it is only Thursday.  Something about this week has just got me beat!  I have been working crazy hours, trying to get everything done, so I can take some time off when my son is home for Christmas break.  Most of the times that he has days off from school, I still have to work. Hopefully this break, I can keep work to a minimum and actually enjoy time with my family.  Novel idea!

December is flying by!  It is hard to believe that we are only 2 weeks away from Christmas.  The weather here in Colorado has been in the 50’s, so it is hard to realize it is actually December.  Don’t get me wrong, I am loving this weather, and would not change it for anything!  Going for walks outside in December is perfect in my opinion. Come March when we are freezing cold and have lots of snow, I will be wishing we had these nice days.

After being gone for a week, this week is crazy!  Trying to get work done on top of getting the house ready for Christmas, and doing some baking.  I have a cookie exchange this weekend that I need to figure out what I am making!  I love doing cookie exchanges.  My family is kind of picky about what cookies they will eat, but just getting to hang out with friends and share food together is so much fun.  Stay tuned, because I am sure whatever I make will show up here later this month.  I can’t make something I have shared with them before!

Is it cold where you live?  It has been in the single digits for highs here this week.  Very unlike normal Colorado weather, and I can honestly say…I do not like it one bit!  I am not made the for the cold, despite the fact that I grew up in the Mid-West.  I am always cold, huddled under a blanket, lots of layers, and most likely with a hot drink in hand.  I just do not like winter.  Next week we are back into the 40’s, so at least this is relatively short lived.  But less than a week ago we were 70 degrees, so it is quite the shock to the system.

Are you ready for the holiday baking season? It is pretty much upon us.  I have to admit, I am not quite ready.  This year has just gone by far too quickly, I want it to slow down a little!  But today, I am here with a special treat for you.  I have mentioned Katrina from In Katrina’s Kitchen before.  She is one of my very dear friends in this blogging world.  We were roommates at a conference earlier this year, and I was able to visit her when I was in Ohio a few weeks ago.  So this post is kind of special to me today.  In case you didn’t know Katrina came out with a cookbook (The Biscoff Cookie & Spread Cookbook)!!!  She worked so hard on this book, and it is gorgeous and so full of great recipes.
