the promise of a wonderful weekend

It is Friday evening and I am nearly giddy about the coming weekend. I am not sure what it is - we have no real plans, no commitments, no agenda. The only things on the calendar are a teenager party - at someone else's house no less, and our annual cookie party on Sunday.

This leaves me quite a bit of time to dilly dally around working on projects that I want to do - and which is most likely where the giddy feelings rise from.

Aside from making a ginormous amount of cookies, I would like to get a run in~

And work on wrapping gifts~

And then, if the stars are aligned just right, and I cross all of my fingers, I might be able to work on a bit of decorating (read: more garland, sparkle, painting some pieces I have white, etc...).

I found this home at Country Living and fell in love with the combination of beautiful blue, incredibly festive decor, and just the right amount of sparkle. I love it!

bonne nuit mes amies!

Oh those lovely little biscuits (cookies) all iced in blue and such brilliant shapes..... and such a beautiful house dressed up for Christmas. That blue is very festive and gives a cool snow-like quality.
I just have to finish a few decorating details and then I'm done and can get on with the eating and drinking side of things !!!! XXXX
