Happy Monday all! I am SO excited to get one and a half days off this week! Counting down to Wednesday at noon!
Before I get into my weekend I must say Happiest of Birthdays to my sweet guy, Adam! He means the world to me, and he really is the best guy a girl could ask for! Love you sweetie!!
This weekend was fun and relaxing, and probably felt the most "Christmasy" to me so far this season. We went to the Nutcracker, I finished up my shopping for Adam and some friends, drank waaay to much peppermint coffee, did some baking for the neighbors and my coworkers, went to the Christmas service at church, and made up for all the Christmas movies I hadn't watched yet.
Friday night was the Nutcracker with my best friend and her family. It was downtown, which is always loads of fun to navigate with all of those awesome one way streets and all. The ballet was beautiful and it was so neat to watch it because I used to dance as a kid, it brought back so many memories! It made me want to take a class again. But me in those tights and leotards now is a scary thought...

Saturday I spent most of the day finishing up the shopping for Adam. (I am so excited to give him his presents!) Then I went home and started some baking:
Sunday I slept in for the first time in weeks, it was fabulous! We had a relaxing day at home and I finished up my baking (Ok, more like mixing, heating and microwaving, although you do bake the pretzels):
P.S. For the Buckeyes the only thing I do different than that recipe is that I add paraffin wax to the chocolate so it hardens to a shell and you don't have to keep them refrigerated.
Sunday evening was church, such an awesome message and service! We normally go to church on Thursday nights, (our church has multiple services but they are the same message so you can go to the one that works best for you) but weren't able to go Thursday. I really enjoyed this service, it's much smaller than Thursday night's which I really enjoyed.
The only downside to this weekend is that I have done something to my back and it hates me, so it's been so painful all weekend and every time I climb out of bed or get up from the couch I groan like a 90 year old woman, which let me tell you, is SUPER attractive. I think I'm going to have to find time somewhere to get to the chiropractor, because it is NOT getting better. I'm getting old people!
Well, that was wordy! Thanks for reading all of that babbling! How was your weekend?
