December 10th.  15 days till Christmas.  Monday.  Three things I’m just not down with today.  I must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.  Kinda in panic mode today trying to make all my list of “shit to do” by the end of the week.  Speaking of Monday, its Green Monday?  Is this a real thing?  I had never heard the term before today.  I guess it’s the last day to get regular/free shipping for online shopping.  One more thing to add to my “oh shit list” ha!

Oh and have you seen the meme that’s going around today?  The one about today being a special day, one that only happens once every 1,000 years.  Your age + the year you were born = 2018.  It works for everybody.  How?  I’m so stumped!

We had a nice relaxing weekend.  We slept in both Saturday + Sunday mornings.  Even cleaned the house, which I never do on the weekends.  Sat on the couch Saturday evening and couldn’t remember the last time we were home without anyplace to be on a Saturday evening.  I was very into it.

 

Intentions for the Week:

  • tackle Christmas shopping….I’m wayyy behind
  • dinner + drinks with my favorite Salinas homegirl ♥
  • lots of water.  Why is it so hard?
  • fab 40’s + ricks dessert diner tradition
  • make my {asian turkey + green beans}
  • diy blanket ladder
  • celebrate Daniels baptism
  • help Bay get ready for the 7th grade formal
  • wrap gifts
  • style my new gold bells
  • plan SF weekend
  • favorite things brunch
  • remember to count my blessings

 

Highlights from the weekend……

Tree Lighting //

We made it to the Downtown Woodland Tree Lighting.  Right after the tree was lit…lol.  It’s so cool to see how much this event has grown over the years.  About 10 years ago, hardly anyone went.  And they didn’t have all the extras, like bubble snow + Santa either.

Christmas Parade //

Bay walked in the parade, I went home and watched TV…lol.  It was too cold.  Also, I think it’s the first year I’ve miss the parade.

Winter Formal //

Bay found a new dress for the dance.  It was $25, so I was down with it.  Nordstrom offers free alterations if you have a Nordy’s card.  Worth it.  Hands down, best customer service!

Bay got a life lesson while sitting at Chando’s Tacos on Garden Hwy….

This is your brain on drugs!  Bomb ass tacos.  Terrible location!

Bay updated our letter board for Christmas.  I asked her to come up with something cute….and she was done in about 25 seconds…lol.  It’ll do 🙂

Never gets old.  I sit here and sip my coffee every single morning.  But, on 12/26 all this shit will be gone.  Without a trace of Christmas…ha!  Anyone else get crazy like me?

We popped this open for Baklava making day.

Baklava //

This is the 3rd year I’ve made baklava with the Corbett girls.  Such a fun tradition.  Now if only I can NOT eat the whole dish of baklava, that would probably be a good idea.

Those layers though……

Garland //

Dropped off Alex’s garland last night.  LOVE how it turned out.  I love the texture + scent the eucalyptus adds to the fresh garland.  She picked up these silver reindeer to add to the table….super cute!

Bumping into homies at Steve’s Pizza on a Sunday night.  It was nice catching up Korine + Kelly!!
