I am full-on, 100% in the holiday spirit. We got our tree up and decorated (I tried to convince my husband to get this 12 foot tree, but he didn’t think our 10 foot ceilings would agree) and our house is looking like something straight out of the North Pole.
If that weren’t enough…I spent all weekend baking Christmas Cookies!
Linzer Stars (recipe to come!)
Good thing I snapped this picture when I did, because these cookies didn’t last long at all!
Last Saturday I was out Christmas shopping all day – so much fun! Because I was doing so much walking from store to store and so much heavy lifting of bags and packages I treated myself to one of my favorite holiday indulgences – an eggnog latee! So delicious! But why does Starbucks always insist on spelling my name SO wrong?!?
We had a pretty busy week last week, so we’ve been eating out more than usual. I usually prefer eating in during the week, but when you get dishes like this lobster paella it’s enough to convince me to eat out every night!
How are you getting into the holiday spirit??!?
Maybe with some of these???
