Holidaze Time

Today marks the middle of December. HOW is it December 15th already?

Momma and I went to see The Nutcracker this afternoon, and loved the performance! The grace of the ballet paired with the sensational orchestra telling such a beloved Christmas tale was an awesome part of Holidays 2011.

I thought I was all done with shopping, stores and the amount of people that populate every retail store at this time of year but there always seems to some unexpected thing to go out for. I am pleased with the gifts I've chosen for people and hope they enjoy them as much as I expect they will! I've given one gift so far (a necklace I made for a friend, and forgot to take a picture of before I gave it to her!) and have many left to wrap.

I don't hate wrapping, but I don't really like it all that much. But I love the look and feel and presentation of a wrapped gift, so this season I am a tape and ribbon maestro!

So there's wrapping to do, and gorcery shopping cus' we still gotta eat, a house to clean, a dinner menu to finalize, parties to attend and still try and make sure you get the opportunity to sit back and relax with loved ones and enjoy each other's company.

It's all well and good to get caught up in the frenzy of the holiday season but maybe let it be less about rushing to get to the mall to spend and shop and be more about hurrying to the welcoming home of a friend for a visit.

I'm getting ranty...

I think I need a egg nog Noel Nog (lactose free and tastes WICKED!), or a toasted almond (made with lactose free milk, the idea of drinking cream skeeves me out), or a nice warm buttered rum. Mmmmm

How are you making out this Holiday season? Ready? Nowhere even close?
