Wow what a great weekend! I am sad to see it end! After a short week due to snow and crazy few days at work, my weekend started on Friday evening with 2 great girlfriends, Danielle and Nikki. We went to Centro downtown for a yummy dinner and great conversation. I don’t get to Centro too often, because they do a lot of wood-grilling which Joe doesn’t care for, but I LOVE!! I had Stuffed Chicken Breast, side caesar salad and one yummy cocktail! After dinner I ran to the store for some late night shopping for cookie supplies. I almost had a heart attack because I thought they were out of powder sugar *gasp* but they were just hiding it in a display. I was glad because I really didn’t want to make another stop just for one item.
Saturday I got up early and baked all morning!! Chex mix, candy cane cookies and brown sugar spritz! That went pretty smoothly, although for all the parchment paper users out there, when pressing out the spritz they don’t stick to parchment so just use the pan. It only took me about 4 pans of frustration to figure this out. I got all packed up and went to Sherry’s for our cookie exchange. Below is just a small sampling of what I came home with, along with a few not pictured pieces of cake!! I have been snacking on cookies now for 2 days, the rest are going to work with me tomorrow.
This morning I slept in until 10:30, whoa!! Not like me at all, I mean literally slept until then, usually I wake up around 6:30/7 at the latest and lay round but today was deep wonderful sleep until 10:30 what a treat! That means I got almost 12 hours of sleep last night. Since then I have been studying, boo, and am taking a little break to write this post. Yes I am almost done studying and then I will quit talking about it. My test is tomorrow at 1, and my procrastination got the best of me…and I am a little worried 😦
These next 3 weeks are looking to be very busy and fun and I can’t wait!! This week my focus will be Christmas shopping. This seriously might be the latest I have ever waited to shop.
