Friday Favorites Feature ** Party Returns Friday, January 9th!

Hi everyone- Christmas is in a week.  I started baking this week and getting ready for baby girl to arrive home from college on Friday evening.  My sister flies out Sunday night from Knoxville.  We are going to the Nutcracker with my husband’s family on Saturday. Let me just say it is hard to “promote” the Nutcracker to tween/teen boys. On Sunday my daughter and I are hosting our 7th annual ornament exchange. The girls are now juniors in college and it is a wonderful tradition for the moms and the daughters.  And, Friday night I am attending a neighbor’s naughty or nice party. Each guest brings  a gift that is either nice or naughty.  I’m more the nice and let’s just say my Crate & Barrel gift was a hit last year.


So this week we are not hosting a Friday Favorites party because next week is Christmas!  This week we are showing off our favorite features.
