Our Weekend

After a long work week and a crazy weekend, I'm going to keep this pretty short and sweet.  The holidays are in full-swing and I am starting to get more anxious by the day with all that's going on.  At the same time, I'm trying to slow down long enough to actually enjoy the season.  It's hard to believe that this is Ethan's third Christmas--and last Christmas as an only child.  That just boggles my mind!

Anyway, back to my not so short and sweet post...our weekend in five pictures:

Friday night, I put our Christmas cards together.  Thankfully Minted made the process super easy this year with printing both the "to" and "from" address on the envelope.  Huge time saver!

I received some last minute ornaments from Terrain that really helped fill out our tree.  I am in love with all the colors!

But just to give you reference...they are teeny tiny!

Saturday night, we had our annual cookies & cocktail party.  I made this cookie recipe, which seemed to be a hit!  Things sure have changed with little toddlers running amok and most of my girlfriends being pregnant at the moment...at least I was in good company!  ;)

Sunday we took a brisk walk, watched Frozen and made pineapple salsa + avocado nachos.  You can find the salsa recipe here.  We did not use coriander or cumin and added lime juice, but you get the gist!  ;)

How were your weekends?  Did you do anything festive?
