Nice – Love the glasses and I ADORE peanut brittle!

I went Bourbon tasting with the hubs – it’s our one year anniversary tomorrow but we’ll be in church and then brunching with friends so this was really nice to get some alone time along with free booze!

Very cute and the brittle looks yummy (even though I don’t like peanut butter)!

I shopped, shopped and then shopped some more. I am SOOO ready for Christmas to be over so we can start keeping the money thats transferred into savings each week in there!

Hmm let’s see… I got my hair done, made gingerbread, visited with FI’s parents (and their dogs mostly), finished christmas shopping, wrapped everything, made dip, and am going to bed so i’ll be rested for the two christmas parties tomorrow.  Phew!  It’s been a crazy weekend!

My partner & I replaced our ugly wooden toilet seat, & then went bowling/to dinner for his company xmas party.

After the party I watched some kung-fu with my pal G (who suited up!), while my partner drunkenly passed out on the couch beside us lol.

Today I am nursing a hangover 😛

I pasted my invites.  Finished shopping.  Today I’m going to the Nutcracker Ballet and packing for the trip home tomorrow!  I didn’t get to spend Christmas with my family last year, so I’m very excited.

I nursed my sick child back to health. Now she is brimming with energy and I am exhausted…LOL. I have one more item on my shopping list and I will get that Monday after work though. Today will be a lazy day of surfing the net and watching football….and napping

I baked, built, and delivered gingerbread houses to the families we know with small children.  Now my hubby wants more babies!!!!LOL we love seeing their faces and we give them candy bags and frosting to decorate the houses. 

JamaicaBride: Glad to hear she is feeling better!! Lazy sundays are the best.

cebre80:  That peanut brittle looks so delish I think I might have to give it a shot today.

Friday I had my second hair trial, which turned out great! One of my bridesmaids is getting married in September, so she came with me and we went to lunch, and to look at her wedding dress. Fiance and I just made dinner and watched TV Friday night, and I worked all day Saturday.

Last night after Fiance went to work, I stayed up really late to work on centerpieces.  Which is what I will be doing today as well….

12 more days!

Holiday party with some friends, celebrated my mom and sister’s birthdays yesterday, and today I am finally getting to spend some time with my Fiance. We went grocery shopping, made bagel bites…we went grocery shopping when we were hungry :), and now we are watching football. We may go to bed, bath and beyond and Target later, but I don’t know if we’ll have time. Hah! 🙂 LAZY Sunday!!

@crebre80 – I can’t WAIT for you to see everything! I didn’t take any pictures of my trial . . . I dropped my iPhone in the toilet last month, and my current phone doesn’t take great pictures. My first trial I had it put all up, and I didn’t like it at all.  I wear my hair up all the time, so for my trial Friday we did a big bump, half up with lots of curls.  We will see. 

We have two different centerpieces – one DIY, and one real flowers.  The DIY ones are big ivory pomander balls with lots of crystal covered branches and long crystal strands hanging down. They are all covered with fake snow, so they are very frosty and wintery looking.  They are for sure a labor of love.  Each one takes about 2 hours or so, and I am making 15.  I only have three done, so I really need to work on them…. I wish you lived closer, I would bribe you with wine to help me 😉

The other tables have clear cube vases with hydrangeas in them.  All the tables have lots of candles.

Can’t wait to see them come together! I will take some pictures for you soon!
