Christmas is in full swing and Andrea and I are having a Christmas Party tonight as a final hurrah at our house! We both got home from work last night, looked at each other in exhaustion, and said "let's decorate and cook tomorrow." But then we started making chocolate covered pretzels and then I turned on Christmas music and before we knew it, the time was 10 PM and our house had been Christmafied.
So on this Feel Good Friday I'm feeling good about celebrating our friends, this fabulous season and this house we love so much at our tacky Christmas party tonight!
12 dozen cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, homemade chex mix, baked brie and crackers, veg and hummus, chips and homemade guac, puppy chow, vodka cranberry cocktails, lots of beer + wine and even more holiday cheer!
This week I'm also feeling good about just being present. It is so, so easy for me to live in the future and think "when this happens, then I will..." and that's just silly. I wonder when I'll get married, heck if I'll get married, if I'll get into school, when my hip will heal, etc etc. But lately I've been trying to just be here. Right now. And to soak it up. Because if I'm suppose to do those things then I will. And I'll do them exactly when I'm suppose to. So for now, I'm going to focus on the right here and now so I don't miss a precious second of it.
And on this Feel Good Friday I'm so excited about these cookies from the fabulous Hummusapien that you should go make them right now! I'm actually 95% sure I'm going to whip up a batch right when I get home. Perfect for the holidays!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
And eat a Christmas cookie....or ten.
Soak it up friends!
