Weekend Adventures

Working retail at Christmas takes over your life. It's not the most fun but I'm doing my best to squeeze in as much holiday fun as I can this month. 

A couple of weekends ago we had some family come up to visit. It was a great weekend and I consumed so much good food and laughed so much. 

I made a cinnamon maple coffee cake and fruitcake cookies for the weekend and they both turned out great. I'm going to share the recipes next week.

The entire house decided to have a nap or disappear into video games (ahem, Adam) so I hung out with cats in the basement for a bit.

We picked up the Marge ornament while out shopping at Target. 

We checked out the Festival of Lights!

And brought home a Red Lobster take-out bag for Seymore.

While Seymore partied in the paper bag, we ate lots of treats and played games. 

This was definitely my highlight of the month because since then I feel like I've been living at work and in a time crunch when I'm at home.

I hope you have a good weekend! I'll be at work and doing my best to stay in the Christmas spirit!

  2. Your bakes sound as delicious as ever, and I'm very glad to hear you've managed to fit in some socialising and relaxing pre-Christmas xxx
