Pre-Christmas Weekend

The last weekend before Christmas was very relaxing and fun for me since I was done with all of my shopping and didn't need to do any last minute runs to the mall!

 This Weekend I. . . went to Missy's house to celebrate Christmas with her and Ilka.

I wore my sequin sweater that I got at Banana last year after Christmas for a great deal!  We enjoyed some champagne with pomegranate and lots of yummy appetizers.  Oh and I love Missy's fireplace with all of the candles.  So pretty.  It was such a fun evening with friends.

 This Weekend I. . . made Buckeyes!

 This Weekend I. . . made Chocolate Nutella and Sea Salt Fudge.

I brought some of each to Georgina's house for her cookie party.  It was a lot of fun eating so many yummy treats!

 This Weekend I. . . went out for drinks with Georgina after the party (we needed something to wash down all the sweets!) Ha!  The bar was decorated for Christmas and looked so pretty!

  This Weekend I. . . got more Christmas cards in the mail and my door is just about full.  Love it!

 This Weekend I. . . watched a few movies.

I saw Silver Linings Playbook in the theatre and it was EXCELLENT.  I highly recommend it.  I really love Jennifer Lawrence.  This role was so different than her role at Katniss in The Hunger Games and she has proven to me that she is a great actress.  The fact that she is gorgeous doesn't hurt either!

I was so happy that two of my favorite movies to watch at holiday time were on last night.  First I watched Miracle on 34th Street (the original which is the best one) and then The Sound of Music.  Both of these movies make me so happy!  

This Weekend I. . . saw this picture of my niece Ella (aka Wonder Woman) and her cousin Maddy (aka Bat Girl) and got a good laugh.  

They are too cute for words.  Sadly Peyton was sick this weekend with a high fever so I'm guessing she missed out on this fun.  Hopefully she is feeling better for today and tomorrow!

Fabulous weekend leading up to Christmas Eve celebrating tonight and Christmas Day tomorrow.  I can't wait!  Love that I'll be off the day after Christmas to recover!

Merry Christmas everyone.  I hope you have a fabulous day with family and friends.
